Soul Stories - The Story

Soul Stories

Groove-O-Matic - Sometimes you just gotta get up and dance and start life off with a party tune! Wes Side Story - Wes changed the world of jazz and certainly for guitar players. His music and cool West Coast tone will forever remain part of our lives. Sol Amor (a story of passion) - Whether it's passion for music, art, dance, the allure of a beautiful woman or just a passion for life, life is empty without it. Live your life with passion and dance a little while your at it. :-) Europa - Whoever thought such a beautiful song could be written about an icy, Galilean planetary moon. One of the most beautiful songs Carlos Santana has ever written, with my twist :-) You're the One for Me (a hard luck story) - Always one ace short of a James Bond, our protagonist in this story hopes his luck with the woman of his dreams will be better than his luck with cards. The right woman can inspire even a tattered, broken winged eagle to learn to fly again…if there just wasn't always another rooster in this one hen house. Ok, enough with the bird analogies. :-) Story of the Blues - Every great blues song tells a story, but the blues itself has told a story of American culture for over 100 years. Almost every blues song is a hard luck story, so why does listening to the blues make us feel so good? Sara Smile - I'm still not sure if he wants her to stay forever or if he's letting her go, but there has never been a more emotional, passionate song written (Hall and Oates) and the story can be told with just a guitar. Story of My Life - How can I tell the story of my life in a melody. I don't know, but I'll start with as much beauty, joy, gratitude, pain, hope and love as possible. You're My Miracle (a story of bliss and groove) - Life is a miracle. We all have miracles in our lives, our spouse, kids, our health and freedom or just being able to create and share music. When you see your miracles, spend your life showing them they are just that. Encantadora (a story of enchantment) - There's nothing more beautiful than the graceful charm of an enchanting woman to make us forget about everything else...for a while anyway.
