Hey everybody! Here is a new song I hope you will enjoy!

There is a little back story here: When I was about 13, I went to the beach for the first time, actually, it was a college-sponsored program to go to Kennedy space center in Florida... but either way, the beach was there. It was night, and the first time I was ever in the ocean. In the distance you could see a storm cloud, about 50 miles away, and lightening was coming out of it and all sorts of stuff, but there was no danger, just an eerie sight, and I felt oddly at one with nature because of the ocean and imagining the scope of everything, and feeling like a grain of sand in the whole scheme of things.

I wrote this song to reflect the feeling of that moment, and I hope it comes across... if not, I at least hope you enjoy the song!

Re: Visions

I can definetly tell you are from the south (as am i).
Meaning your licks have some southern rock influence along with some petrucci style.
I dig it man.
The ending was bad asst.

Re: Visions

Yes, I definitely have a lot of southern rock in my DNA! Glad you like it - I certainly tried to put a lot of thought into the ending!
