Horst,

What did you use for the violin?

A song that belongs in the 60's but sounds great now.
Good vocals etc

Great ending!!!

Horst,

A good production on this - one of your best, I think.
The vocals are very well done and the song has a good energy. Nice melody and cadence.

The first listen, the fiddles solo seemed long - expected it to finish at that first pause (which was nice) @ 1:20. A second listen and I was expecting it, so it worked okay, but I think it would work better for the song without that second half. The fiddle that plays at the end (@ 1:58) is nice, but a bit loud, on top of the vocal... tuck that under the vocal and it would be very effective...

A very enjoyable tune. Jaunty!
(A lyric would be nice?)

This is a nice write and production. The fiddle fits the song well. I enjoyed my listen from start to finish.

Scary, but Floyd said every single thing I was going to say!

There's something about your songs that really resonates with me. The energy to which Floyd alludes is definitely a part of what shows up in all of your songs. And maybe that's why most of what you present has a "live" feel to it. I also like your philosophical side. You aren't just throwing lyrics out there.. so far everything you've submitted indicates that you use your head for more than just a hat rack. I like that.

The fiddle you chose for this song worked out really well! It sustained in all the right places, but the phrasing was lively and interesting throughout! I find myself skipping past the gypsy fiddle real tracks, but this worked so well that I'm going to have to rethink that!

I like clean endings, and this one was very much to my liking. All the real tracks concluded at the same place, no stragglers! What a concept!

Good job! You're a very talented guy, and I enjoy what you're doing! Keep 'em coming!

Another great tune!! Really nicely done all the way. I think the fiddle may slightly interfere with the vocal near the end of the song-pretty busy. Really nice stuff!! Take care. Greg
