Description
This is a song Im working really hard with. This is the first rough cut of this song. There are a few timing issues.
The last part needs cleaned up. Better bass part forth coming. I have done a few vocal takes. I plan on doing more very soon.

Pretty cool - very deep tone
that bass is wrapping itself around my head. I like that. So you're still working on this eh? Keep up the good work - it already sounds really cool.

Had to listen again
Is that a keyboard violin or cello effect or is that you playing a string instrument? I love it, It adds such a great mood to the song. Very cool. I replied to your comment on my song, Feels like a good time, to your question. I am definately a fan.

The mood is way cool. Sort of Harry Nilsson mid-70's. I really dig that. underrated.

Love how you did the drums.

wow
I dont know why but it reminds me of some Glimour on his own, must be your voice. Some very cool bass parts in this ! I hear the few timing issues but they dont seem to throw me off ,To me it gives it a live feel like theres a whole band playing with you. Excellent!

Gilmour
I have 2 early Gilmour solo records. So just maybe a bit of him is there. If I had a live band with timing issues I could only blame myself being a bass player. I do strive for the live band sound.Thanks for the listen!!

sorry
Sorry I took so long to respond but I had to google Daniel. And I see what you mean. Thanks for the comment about the bass solo. There are a few songs Ive done with a bass solo in there..I just sneak them in. Thanks for the stop and listen!

Nice tune Steve
I like so much about this that I'm reluctant to say that the keyboard (or melodica) line at the start felt awkward to me. Not the line necessarily - but the voice. Small criticism on a great track. Excellent lyrics and vocals.

cello
that was a cello part...but yes..I agree. It is a bit off..just like the feel in a couple spots. Imworking on a better vocal ending too. Thanks for the stop and listen!

Steve
That bass sound is a keeper; remember those settings;-). How 'bout a harmony on the lines "I think I have to say I love you" ? Beautiful tune, but that bass is sweet.

Its basically an American Fender Jazz bass with my Eden amp. Im redoing the last verse and I might just add that harmony! thanks for the listen and comment!

Nice song
Cool bass soloing. I like the sound you get from that bass guitar. It's always a challenge to me to get a good and distinct bass in the mix. You have a very good voice for this kind of song.

Hey Thanks
Simple . I keep it simple. Just a slight tweeking on the mid. I like the eden amp for recording bass and the seymour duncan live. Oh yea and newer strings The heaviest gauge you can find. Round wounds
Thanks for the stop and listen!

Honest vox
There's something about this tune that has put me through about 4 listens -- make that 5 or 6 now. top of the list: Nice honest vox (I hit the bullseye on the vox influence when we met-up in MJ chat and I'm not going to let on unless someone else catches it). Neat sneaky-little bass riffage. Arrangement's got a nice weave to it. Progression flows as smoothly as the mellow vox.

First thing that struck me ..
.. was you've got an excellent voice and caught it well in this recording- a little peaky in spots (vocals).. get in there with the track automation and just nudge those spots down a bit. Delivery is spot on, great feel. Sure, the odd drum fill has some loose timing but the bass sounds great and steers you away a bit from that .. I personally would vary the guitar sound eg. make a bit less use of that "chorus" effect. Drum timing at the ending is a bit hap-hazard.. but all in all I think this piece is a well done representation of what you do well.. just iron out a few kinks and it's as good if not better than you'ld achieve from a studio.
