Description
I might do some different mixing with this one, change up the drum sounds, make it less power ballad-ish. but I like it pretty well now.

You're
right to 'like it pretty well' Pabs.... it has an 'Eagles' touch about it... love the song and the way you sing and play it, the harmonies and all that, though it seems to have a different, more 'digital' sound than you usually have......drums sound fine to me, regards M

Cool roots band sound. Like the rhythm tone. Drums working fine. Cool melody and great singing. I can really feel the emotion in this.
Love the harmonies on the chorus. TASTY guitar break. At 7:20 might be a tad long, but that's a nit. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

I like the song and the backing. The vocal is good, especially when there is some harmony going on. Good guitars, too. I'm not such a big fan of the long fade (I blame The Beatles and Hey Jude for making that popular!) but I enjoyed listening very much.

I really like your vocal work on this, Paul. The emotion of the lyrics shines through, as it does on many of your songs, and the harmonies sound just right. Very good song and the arrangement works a treat. I think the longish ending will work well in a live environment. I had a mental flash that your lead vocal sounded like an amalgam of Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmit :-) A good thing, in my book. Thanks, Peter

thank you Peter
I've been following "the voice" this season aand the coaches are always talking about connecting with the song on an emotional level rather than a technical one. I was trying to keep that in mind as I did this one. Very cool Henly/Schmitt flash!

This is certainly different from the last tune you did! This is much more like a nice slice of Americana, and it sounds cool. You have a nice singing voice, and those are some cool harmonies. Pretty good guitarring too. Enjoyed this, man - thanks!

thank you Sid!
I'm glad you like it. Yeah that last tune was more of an itch that needed to be scratched than my usual stuff. Thanks for giving this one a listen and thanks again for the fine guitar work on the last tune.

rhythm guitar reminds me of crowded house. great voice. reminds me also of train. very effective spacing of sounds. this is a very good tune very well put together. enjoyed it a lot. i think it needs to be shorter though. cheers graham

thank you Graham
Yeah it is a bit long, but it was so fun singin'that last part. I was going to just keep layering it but that would have made it even longer. I'm glad you liked it though.

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]
