“Empty Dreams” Released On iTunes and Spotify!

Empty Dreams is an original song by Richard “Rick” McCargar about how our dreams sustain us no matter how little others may understand our vision and passion…and it’s now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google and all major download/streaming services!

Musicians and singers start by learning the songs of those we admire, hoping to move beyond that to our own, but it’s really a dream that sustains us whether or not we “make it”. I hope you find it to be meaningful in your life..

Lyrics:

Empty Dreams
by Richard McCargar

Verse 1

Rubber bands on peach crates
I played as George and John


“There’s no future in it Son”
I said, Someone’s gonna be the one


My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away

All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way

Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind

Verse 2


Must have played their songs a million times
to make them come out right

Every note and chord was magic
the melody makes you high

Every song taught me a lesson
about what they felt inside

I put pen to paper
Pushed My Ego Aside


Chorus:


Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind


Verse 3

When I started my song
they began to sway


That’s when I knew
I was born to play

My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away


All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way


Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Free My Mind

Blackberry Blossom guitar lesson in style of Tony Rice with tablature

This version of Blackberry Blossom bluegrass song in the style of Tony Rice with guitar tablature, was recorded at 160 beats-per-minute, but he plays it much faster than that….I figured this was about as fast as it would be of any use to anyone who wanted to learn how to play it.

If you want to help me continue to work out these riffs/solos and songs, and particularly, to put out the tab, take a moment to buy and download my cover of “Little Martha” on iTunes. I’d sure appreciate it!

I realize some of you can’t afford it, so that’s cool…but I know some of you can. If you can’t maybe add one of my songs to your spotify (or other streaming service) playlist, or hit the Paypal Donate button. That would be cool too!

It’s a better world when we all do our part.
Thanks,
Rick
