Here is my week 8 release: Not Going Down There No More

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/02/25/track-8-not-going-down-there-no-more/

HankPS1 style: #539 Pop Swing Bass, Nashville Brushes Classic Shuffle RD, #639 Resonator Background Hank Swing, #2122 Resonator Soloist Country Shuffle Rob.

I played acoustic guitar and banjo-guitar.

The RealTracks Resonator (DOBRO) background and solo parts blended well, at least to my ears.

Thanks for listening and for any comments you would like to make.

Fred

Fred,

Excellent write. In another age, this would be a folk classic.

Listening in phones the panning was a bit wide, I thought. (small thing - and a personal choice, I know).

The arrangement and production and vocals are all really well done.

Thanks for the comments.

Floyd, thanks for flagging the panning. My main rig is out of commission, so am having to mix on smaller speakers. I will consult the headphones.

Great Americana going there! The lyric, vocal and the shuffle groove are right in our listening wheelhouse.
A bit like Uncle Tupelo, etc.

You have a host of fine lines packed in the lyric and they are well delivered vocally.

And we always like to hear Rob show up here. He's a master Dobro picker. We've listened
to Blue Highway for 20 years.

Enjoyed it!!

Sounds great on my phones and I love the song. Terrific folkie Americana sound.

BTW, I thought you'd used 52 tracks and I'm thinking wow man that's a lot of tracks I gotta hear this... Then I realized you're writing 52 tracks. LOL! That's quite a goal. Good luck.
