Here is my week 11 song: Dreaming Out Loud. A song I wrote in 1994 about songwriting.... Read the blog entry for it genesis.

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/03/17/track-11-dreaming-out-loud/

RealTracks: 701 Electric Bass Pop Half Notes Sync Even; 688 B3 Organ Background Pop Even; RealDrums: RockNorthern^7

I played two rhythm electric 12-string parts and a solo 12-string using harmonics.

Thanks for listening. Comments always appreciated.

You keep writing quality songs. Like the lyrics and story behind them.
On my system the vocal sounds a touch loud in the mix (could be my system)- (headphone mix however sounds fine).
Nice 12 string chimes.

Thanks all. PeterF, I will log your comment on the vocal level and check it out. I think you may be right. I had to use my backup rig's smaller monitors for this mix.

Again, I appreciate the feedback.

Fred, I don't many songwriters who couldn't identify with this song. Pretty arrangement too.

You're really on roll with this project!
