Hi All,

Here's a song I wrote in September of 2001. It was originally recorded with just a guitar and featured on a Martin Guitar Forum compilation CD in 2003. I decided to re-recorded it with BIAB/RT's - thanks for listening.

He felt the breath of the devil
Over his right shoulder
He took her in his arms
To comfort and hold her
When the lights went dark
They were neither nor weak
They became new residents
The ghosts of Vesey Street

As the brother's stood tall
Through the fire and smoke
Some lept into the sky
And some took the last boat
Daniel gazed out the window
Couldn't rise from his seat
He became the next member of
The ghosts of Vesey Street

As the last phoenix pierced
The heart with no pity
The brother's laid down
With their friends in the city
And they'll never forget
The fate they did meet
But they're still standing tall with
The ghosts of Vesey Street

Now the days grows still
But for the churches bell
It's the sound of separation
From Heaven and Hell
Yes the city that cries
But does not sleep
Hope and faith walk forever with
The ghosts of Vesey Street

I would re-do this one. The RT fiddle hits a bum phrase at 0:10 and the vocal entry seems mighty rushed. It just seems a little out of synch to me.

Nice work. Sounds like a Springsteen toon. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds great to me, good composition. Fiddle sounds nice, and I dig the percussion too. Lyrics are well written, and I have to say I really enjoy your vocal! Very nice quality to your voice. It does have a bit of a Springsteen vibe happening as mentioned above. My wife is enjoying it too

Hello Robert,

This has a nice "live" sound to my ears. The only advice I have is to pan your instruments so they have a "stage" presence. It sounds like everything is dead center to my ears.

I usually set up like this: B -20,D-0,P25,G-30,S+30 as a starting point. It depends on which RT's I am using. I like to separate the Rhythm Guitar on one side and the Picking Guitar on the opposite. Just to give some room for each instrument placement.

Your song was great and the mix was fine. I know writing one is a gift and I wished I had that gift.

Trax

Definitely sounds better to me (unless I was wrong the first time around -- ha, ha). Good write and performance.

Bob,

This song is a bit dark for my personal taste but it's well done for the genre. The mix to me has an almost mono vibe which gives it a retro feel.

Josie, thanks. So glad you picked up on that vibe - that's exactly the sound I was trying to achieve.

BTW, check your PM.

Well written song and well produced. I like the way you use the biab track which is similar to what I would do. Only nit is and maybe this is the way you want it , but I had to google Vesey Street to understand it was about 9/11.
