Smooth – Santana – Am

Intro – Am7, E7, Am7, E7

                      Am7      E7                                         Am7         E7
Man, it’s a hot one, like seven inches from the midday sun
                                                                   Dm      Dm/C     Dm6
Well, I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone
      E7                    Am7    E7
But you stay so cool
                 Am7    E7                                         Am7   E7
My muñequita, my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa
                                        Dm  Dm/C  Dm6  E7
You’re my reason for reason, the step in my groove, yeah.

[Bridge]
E7
And if you said,
Am7                   E7
“This life ain’t good enough.”
                        Am7                       E7
I would give my world to lift you up
                        Am7                   E7                  Dm  Dm/C Dm6
I could change my life to better suit your mood
E7                             Am7   E7
Because you’re so smooth

[Chorus]
               Am7                             E7
And it’s just like the ocean under the moon
                               Am7                                         E7
Well, that’s the same as the emotion that I get from you
       Am7                                              E7
You got the kind of loving that can be so smooth, yeah.
Dm                                           E7                                      Intro
Gimme your heart, make it real or else forget about it

Verse2
Well, I’ll tell you one thing, if you would leave it’d be a crying shame
In every breath and every word I hear your name calling me out
Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm on your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you ’round and ’round

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

 

Songwriting in LA

In LA right now trying to write music that we’ll record later this week. We’ll be working with Ken Caillat next week so I’m writing with one of his writers names Eric Berdon. We wrote some good stuff last night and today I have the day off to relax and get more good ideas down before we meet again tomorrow. I was so nervous about writing with someone I’ve never met but it felt good and I can’t wait to start again.
I could get used to this kind of living so hopefully ill be able to come back more often to work in LA.
I’ll post some more stuff on my FaceBook and Twitter so follow me for updates and picture!

My Brain is Tired…

Hey Everyone,
It’s been a long couple of weeks for me as we’ve been playing so many ManoaDNA gigs around town for various Christmas parties. I love this season because everyone is so happy and cheery, but damn is it exhausting! I can’t wait to just relax during Christmas and enjoy the holidays.
We’ve been talking with some people from LA about furthering my writing skills and getting our music more into the mainstream, and hopefully I’ll be taking a trip up to Cali to meet with some people and talk business. This is the next step I’ve been looking for for years and I can’t wait to learn and increase my music knowledge. I’ve been posting a lot on my Twitter, Instagram (User: AlxKawakami), and Facebook so please stop by and say hello!

Talk to you all soon, have a wonderful Christmas!
Alx
