Remembering John Ono Lennon pt 2

Back in October I posted the closing 90 seconds of a song ‘Last Train To Memphis’ which referenced John Lennon in the lyric. To mark the 40th anniversary of his death I’m posting the whole track and also a variation of the song which I created around 2016 called ‘Dakota Elegy’. In part the riff is transposed into a minor key and there is a partially new lyric.

    Really nice groove in the first version. I’ve been reading your books for forever (even use it to teach some of my voice students music theory).

    It was cool to hear a song you’ve written.

    Keep up the great work!

    Love this song, and particularly the reference to John Lennon.
    Can’t believe it has been forty years.
