Songs: Smile for the Camera (AGF 2)


About the Music: “Smile for the camera” was recorded at Winterland studios in New Hope, MN sometime back in 2006. I wrote it while going through some old photos taken during my childhood days.

Originally, it was written for a slide show of the photos but I think the song stands pretty well on its own. It also lets the listener see their own pictures in the mind as they hear the lyrics.

Instruments / Recording Information: "I used a Martin 000M guitar for the song, and double-tracked my vocal and guitar"
