This is a very cool song George. I like to noodle as well. Most of my songs come from experimenting with riffs on the guitar then adding the backtrack. Your guitar was excellent. Please share some more of your tunes

Great work here, George! I really like arrangement here, and the songwriting is really top notch. It makes me think of an 80's version of Arcade Fire almost, if you have ever listened to them. It's got a great groove through the whole thing, and it's the perfect level of catchiness.

Good job, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi George,

Nice to "meet' you!

I think Deryk summed up my thoughts very nicely - good song that I like a lot. Nice arrangement and backing tracks. I really enjoyed it.

Like Scott, many of my songs come from me sitting around and just playing random riffs on my guitar and then one of them strikes me such that ui might be able to expand it into a real song. Sometimes it workjs, other times, not so much.

Please post more of your music. Most of us would enjoy that. Wishing you well,

Alan

Hi George, Man that was a great listen! Excellent Job on everything Vocals and production! This energetic tune had me imagining Johnny Cash stepping aside and letting Roy Orbison sing one of his hits! Good work! Thanks, Torrey

Scott,
Thank you for your kind words, very pleasing.
I only play guitar for the chord progression then the melody happens in my head.

Deryk,
I must confess, it is all Band in a Box, I only chose the sound that seemed to fit.
The songwriting just happens, no real input from me, someone just taps me on the shoulder and there it is.

Alan,
Nice to "meet" you too.
Thank you for taking a listen and your kind words.

Floyd,
Perhaps the instruments were a little too much, as Mac used to say "less is more".
The vocal was difficult for me as I only have a plastic microphone wand and had to get rid of all the noise it produces.

Torrey,
Thanks so much for placing me into the great musicians like those two, although I don't see myself anywhere near them.
But thank you anyway.

Rob,
Thank you for the kind words.

George

I love the almost beach-y feel that this song has. That may just be because of the image you selected on SoundCloud, but I feel it's really fitting! smile You did a really great job here. I also love that bluegrass feel the song has. <3 Thanks for sharing!

George,
I enjoyed the pop catchiness of this song and the difference you brought to the style by adding different instruments... and your vocal sounds fine.
Looking forward to more.

Robert

Hi Robert,

I had some work to do to get my vocal clean enough to work.
I think I will have to invest in a proper microphone.
Thank you for listening.

George
