Rob's Songs In Progress Free MP3 #3 - A Quiet Desire (Demo)

Today I bring you the third song demo in my ongoing series "Songs In Progress". This new one is called "A Quiet Desire" and is a simple guitar/vocal arrangement at this point. To hear this new song demo, sign up for my mailing list. I will send you a free download code.

For those of you who have been following me for awhile, it may come as a surprise that I even play guitar. "What's this?", you say, "Why, he has always played piano or keyboards in all the years I have known him". Well the truth is, dear reader, I learned to play acoustic guitar back in high school, but never played it much throughout my years as an active musician. Keys are my main instrument and it just made more sense for me to write and perform on them when playing with a rock band. And I have been playing in bands for most of my career. The beloved old acoustic guitar has gathered dust in my closet ever since.

Now that I have been writing some solo material, I thought it might be interesting to go back to the guitar. I have often heard that writing on a different instrument can take you in a new direction musically and wanted to see what that would sound like. Since I don't play guitar as well as piano, let's be honest, my choices for chords and harmonies are somewhat more limited, or maybe just different. Either way, I think the songs do come out sounding different - hopefully in a good, fresh sort of way. I will leave it to you to make that determination....

The next song demo will go out on around May 19th.  Stay tuned!
