Lyrics
take off your shoes
go on get comfortable
we got our whole lives
ahead of us
we can talk all night
if we want to
about this and that
this and that
this and that
and the other thing

you and I
we've seen it all
we've watched them come and go
but baby
here we are
we're still standing
maybe
it's all because of the other thing

Feter!
thank you so much for checking this one out my brother.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. It does my heart good to think that my music has been played on the other side of the world. It's like a vacation without the jet lag.

Lovely and
gentle song. Like the relaxed and easy feel - getting a definite Paul Simon vibe from it. Everything perfect. Real Class. Downloaded. Thanks.
Cheers

thank you len
this one's so mellow even a stone could dance to it.
Paul Simon? very cool! thanks, Graceland is in my top ten all time list. I guess I where my influences on my sleeve.

Stellar stuff
Percussion suits this tune perfectly. Sets quite a mellow mood. Soothing to the ears. Agree with Len's Simon comment.
Really enjoyed.

thank you Lamp
I'm glad you like it. I was kind of shooting for something that was as understated as possible, trying to get the feeling of two people very content with each other's company. Like when things are going good in the household, and nothing in particular is happening and you stop for a second and think- "this is so good!"

A long song, but sometimes it's easy to go on about some things :)

Thanks for the D/L,

Thanks for the listen harold
Yeah, it is a little long I guess.
I'm kinda hoping people will dance to it more than just listen.

You do
get some wonderful lush sounds from your LP 8 and this one sounds s-s-so-o-oo easy and comfortable and .......ready for radio. I love the guitar tone ( the solo is delicious... thrills my solar plexus) and the vocals/ harmonies as always are perfect, the congas too are a great touch. You get such a 'natural' un-electrical sound, if you know what I mean. Love it, just love it, regards M

well, thank you Mo!
I'm glad you like this tune, it seems like I'm starting to find my "voice" again after a long hiatus. (I was off for about 10 years), I've been trying to approach the tunes as if it was a band playing, and I've always loved the sound of acoustic instruments, they are by far my first musical love. I'm glad you like the solo too. I got a CAD small condenser mic that really captures the tone I hear when I'm playing, it makes all the takes I have to do to get a keeper not so bad.
thanks again!

I know exactly
what you mean about 'finding your voice again' as I had a 20yr absence and am still finding it LOL...... and it's true that you loose it if you don't use it, but you found yours OK, cheers M

thank you!
I think you have my cat's evil twin!
One of the sweet things about music is that you have to give it for it to even be. I've heard that if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, then no sound was made. So I figure if you play a song and nobody hears it, then it doesn't exist.

thetiler said 3307 days ago (October 31st, 2008)
nice singing and beats
I think my fav parts are the placements of the harmonics of the guitar. But of course your voice is nice to listen as well. Like the indian chant sound as well.

Thanks for sharing

thank you tiler!
Yeah, I did a lot of takes on the guitar solo, but I think that simple turned out to be the best choice, too many notes seemed to take away from the over all feel of the tune so I laid back more than is my habit. I have all those notes on that guitar, I just hate to let them lie fallow. But cramming them all in didn't work.

Wow this is niiiiiiiice
Wow this is niiiiiiiice .. the song has a powerful combination of sweet softness and alertness.

The guitar recordings are great. I myself find it very difficult it is to get the guitar so soft and full of tone at the same time. The solo is gorgeous! The vocals too! A very special gem in my music collection from now on.

thanks Cori
Guitar tone can be pesky. Here's how I got this one-

I used a small diaphram conderser mic (CAD) at the 14th fret about 8" away, and a behringer B2 large condenser mic at the bridge about the same distance. I used a blue tortex pick for the strummin', and a green gator grip pick for the leads. I was blown away by the tone myself. I worked hard on not attacking the strings too much on the solo too.

I wish I could say yes but, no the conga is a green apple loop that I edited a little for some variation. It sure sounds good though don't it?
Thanks for checking out the tune.

Dude...
I'm gonna adopt you, take you to my jungle lair, and raise you as a liberal...No kidding...

I also want you to traipse on over to my page and listen to my song 'Marigold', only because we share an opening line... How often is THAT going to happen?...

I like the lovely hollow bonk of the congas; enough wood in the tone to suit the acoustic guitar and the vocal and general ambience. I also love the vocals, lead and background, and the way you play guitar... The bass is nice and deep, too, which suits this...

Neat tune, Paul...

Thank you very much Strat
I'm glad you dropped by and gave it a listen, I was a little blown away by the guitar sound myself, it has motivated me to tighten up my playing.
Thank you for listening and commenting.

Very Nice
It took me away instantly. I see similarities like the previous posters to other famous artisits, but thats where we get our influence from, since the beginning of time. Excellent mixing, guitar tone is perfect. Love the vocals as well. Its your own. Feel like Im at the beach in some far off island with the person i love. Well Done!

Moses said 3273 days ago (December 4th, 2008)
yep
this took me to the beach as well, and I took my shoes off and got comfortable watching the sun set in the cool evening ocean breeze without a care, and the people I love close to me just enjoying each others company. The lead guitar midway through was a nice touch, yet it doesn't overcomplicate the track. The tune is easygoing and simple. A good tune to get me ready for finals week. =)

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
