Always Reminds

I was looking through some older files on my hard drive and ran across this one which Eric Boyce helped me write.  I wrote the music and I’ll post that first but, he wrote the lyrics, which I will post after the text I sent him…  Oh that’s right, we were in two different states at the time.  I was in Kansas City, Missouri and he was in San Diego, California…

So here are the chords and music info:

The scale that I've been soloing in is E Mixolydian, 
which is more or less just the fancy technical way of 
saying that I'm using the basic major scale in the 
key of A Major.  

(see this webpage:

So that and this audio track are what I sent to Eric…

and then he sent me this back…

…with his vocals on a mixdown of the track I’d sent.  Plus as I’d requested, he sent just a vocal track…   …which I worked with and was able to easily sync with the original track I sent him, which he used for the recording session…

Here is one of several mixdowns with Eric singing the vocals…  This was basically the final cut with Eric on vocals.

Here is the finished track with me on vocals…
