I used BIAB bass, drums, and piano on this song of mine. I played acoustic guitar and Nashville high-strung guitar, and sang the vocal.

Hi Fred,

Wow!

The first thing that struck me when your song started playing was just how very professional the mix sounded. Then you started singing and I thought, "Yep. This guy's good!". After that, I just sat back, closed my eyes and and thoroughly enjoyed the listen.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Fred,

This is seriously good.

As Noel has said, already, this is simply professional from start to finish.

What a good song this is and so well performed - the vocal is beautifully expressive and intimate.

At nearly five minutes, this is quite a long track, but it didn't feel at all over-long when listening, which just confirms what a good song it is.

Many thanks for posting this one.

ROG.

Hi Fred ...

Nice to "meet" you.

A wonderful song produced and performed to near-perfection. There's an understated passion in your vocal and the backing tracks are couldn't be better. A totally enjoyable listen. We both were taken in with the beauty and simplicity of the song. Very well done, indeed! Hope to hear more from you in the very near future.

Wishing you well,

Alan & Di

Fred,

Those 5 minutes flew by, a sign of a good song.

Good mix, nice vocals and an understated, but perfect for the song, solo. I assume that was you. In fact a thoroughly professional song.

Very enjoyable

Nice mellow tune! In particular, I thought the chorus was inspired.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

nice work. Yup, well done all the way around.

Everything sounds good.

The song is a bit long at 5 minutes in length. But that's a whole other story.

Nicely done, Fred.

Everything fits nicely. Smooth in all aspects - tone, mix, production vocal. Comfortable. Nice

An enjoyable listen.

Hi Fred,

What a beautiful song. Love the lyrics and the melody. Arrangement is really pretty too. I love well done romantic songs. It's a bit long for me - I think you could've cut out the last repeat and the instrumental ending and come in closer to 4 min than 5 without losing any impact. JMHO.

Love it. Well done.

Have to agree with the others that this is really well done! Some really nice lyrics. The writing style reminds me of Bruce Cockburn, one of my favorites. Simple, sweet, and honest. Great job!! Take care. Greg

Fred, Great write and vocal. The production and mix sound good. I do agree with Josie about shortening it. You could also shorten then guitar break and make it more of a turnaround. Great listen. Tom

I enjoyed the listen. I noticed the note about the tempo originally being faster when you wrote the piece. This explains the length of the song after you slowed the tempo. I think it is beautiful as is, but agree with the suggestions offered if you wanted to shorten the song some. It is a very heartfelt and professional offering.

Hello Fred,

Beautiful song and we think your voice would sound even better if you would add a little reverb on the vocal.

Regards,
Rob and Anne-Marie

Fred,

sounds good here in North Carolina. It held up well travelling all the way here from Minnesota. wink

When I travel in the other direction to visit my sister in Rochester, I don't hold up nearly as well. Sometimes I'm not even at the same tempo when I get there.

I have been so busy writing songs for the next album that I never stopped back to see if there were any comments. I am shocked that so many of you took the time to listen and respond. I am very pleased with your positive responses. I agree that I could shorten it. I was just itching to play a solo.... And I did use reverb but I tend to back off when I start to "hear" the reverb. Just my preference.

Luckily for me, I have a really nice condenser microphone and a Universal Audio Apollo preamp/digital audio interface. They make for a really clean, professional sound.

I will post a song from the album I released in April that uses some cool RealTracks.

Thanks again.
