    I have posted this on a couple of other forums already, but I thought it would be fun to share it here as well.

    I've stayed at home with a fever and bad headache today, and have been lying on the sofa for most of the day. Looking through some of my music, I found one of the few recordings I've done that are actually digitalized.

    I wrote the tune sometime in 1998 or 1999 and it was recorded for a demo by a band I was in called "Dobergirl" (crap name, I know...). We didn't really have a name for the song, but it ended up being called "The Two of Us" on the CD. I sing and play the guitar, the rest of the band is drums, bass and a Fender Rhodes. It lacks backing vocals and was basically done in one take (guitar solo was overdubbed), but I think it is a pretty cool tune. The guitar parts were done with my 1975 Gibson SG-II through a Marshall combo that belonged to the studio.

    The band folded because of university studies, I basically had to concentrate on finishing my masters thesis, and didn't have enough time for the band. Too bad, because it could have been pretty good, I think.

    That has to translate into something cooler than what I'm imagining, right?
    If not, woof.
