Hi all, well it has been a very long time since I posted something here. This song was written by my friend Marinus Vandertogt. It's about a blacksmith standing watching his work place of many years being torn down for the sake of progress and remembering all the memories held within the walls . Please enjoy. I am doing the singing and all tracts were BIAB 2014. Midi piano using addictive keys Here is the link I hope:

If the link doesn't work I might have to re think things, as I said it's been awhile

Hi Nelson. I think this is the first post of yours I've heard. This is a very good song, written well and you've got a great mix. Enjoyed it and I hope you post again soon.

Nelson,

A very enjoyable listen. Well written story song (the lyric would be nice.. to follow along).

The production and mix are quite nice. The piano sounds really good. Drums and guitar are at good levels. The reverb on the vocal is a bit heavy (but reverb is a very subjective thing). You have a good singing voice - and this is very well-sung - in my opinion it doesn't need that much reverb. It is especially noticeable when the harmonies (which are quite nice, too) join in. The combination of reverb on vocal and harmony takes the singing "out of the mix". That is all just regarding the reverb and should in no way take away from how well done everything here is done.

Quite enjoyable.

I agree with Floyd. Very nice song, and well-performed!! Reverb may be a bit overdone. With the drums, a bit more verb and maybe some eq would make them sit better. Really nice tune and well sung!! Take care. Greg

Here is the lyric for those that are interested. Thanks to all that listened and left comments. There really appreciated very much. Thanks for the reverb comments, as said it is a very subjective thing we all have to deal with..

Nelson


VERSE

Standin there alone with his pipe full of memories
Looking over a building torn away
With a tear in his eye
looking over a lifetime
He had to say goodbye


BRIDGE
Cold winter afternoons kept the fires burnin high
And friends dropped in to pass the time
Faded dailies of two wars and the friends he left behind
Funny how some sixty years went by

VERSE

Think of all the years as far as he can remember
It's like they've taken part of him away
In his eyes he can see, like the day never ended
The way it used to be

A very moving song, Nelson. Passionately sung, nicely arranged and engineered. I loved the key changes starting at 3:02.
cool

Ah Nels, Life is all about Memories. Often, its all we have left.
This is a great song, full of accurate observation.
Yeah, maybe the Verb was up a bit but it didn't spoil it one bit for me.
Nice guitar break - suits perfectly.
Well done
Cheers
Ian

HI Nelson ...

I think this is the first of y our songs we've listened to. A very sad song, but well done. Your selection of tracks is just perfect for the song...in other words, great prosody. Very nice, indeed! Wishing you well ...

Nels I think this is the first time I have heard one of your songs.

It's all been said, great mix, instrumentation, and vocals. Your voice and these lyrics are a perfect match. I could feel that blacksmith' pain in your vocals, excellent job on that!

I think the reverb on your voice is set just right, but as already been mentioned that is a personal choice. Personally I would leave it as is.

Super job on this song.
