"Loneliness On My Trail" {sample}


Inspired by a line from the film Taxi Driver: "Loneliness has been following me all my life."

Made with Ver. 2010.5

If I feel a solo sounds a little thin or sparse, I will sometimes combine more than one instrument, which I did here.

Hope you like it. - Mark

Hi Mark,

Given that this only a snippet of the song, it's hard for me to comment on the song itself. What I can say, though, is that I thoroughly enjoyed the groove you have happening here. The quality of the backing is top class.

All the best,

Thanks Noel.

I hate to say it, but the snippet is reflective of the whole song.

There are three more verses, but the song doesn't change.

Thanks again, - Mark

Sounds like a good song, what was shared. Well done on the backing tracs. Nice clean vocal. Thanks for sharing!
