John,

I truly appreciate your input. I have great respect for your arranging abilities. I have been bothered all along by the drum part (too bland), just haven't done anything about it yet. When I have some more time to devote to this one, I will probably fine tune it.

Thanks again, and glad you like the song.

Steve

Paul,

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed this. I will try turning my mic upside down next time, so you don't have to rearrange your speakers down there!

Thanks Steve! I'd have to agree with John about the drums - the rest of the Realtracks are just fine, but the drums - well they're not quite right. This is a very, very minor quibble mind you. It usually takes me a while to find exactly the right drums for my songs.

Stephen you have a God given talent to not only write fantastic lyrics but also to find the perfect melody and backing tracks to go along with them.

Outstanding job my friend.

It's a keeper!

Robert,

Thanks so much for taking time to listen and comment! (Does the song play backwards, when you are listening in Australia? )

Glad you enjoyed it!

Steve




As much as I tried to get the song to play it just wouldnt do it.

Paul,

I agree on the drums. I simply ran out of time putting this one together, with my work schedule, so I chose to "err on the side of caution" and keep an over-simplified drum part, until I have the time to do it right. Thanks again for your input!

Mario,

Thanks so much! I always value your input, and appreciate your taking the time to listen and comment!

Robert,

Maybe if you turn your computer upside down???

Steve
