Mark this is awesome!

I really like the catch phrase! Very clever! And your use of realtracks etc is very good.. seamless mix! And I especially like the signature riff you played... great tone!

You said your voices wasn't up to the task, but I tend to disagree.... you have a great voice for this kind if song!

My only nit is that the vocals sound a bit far back in the mix on my system. There's nothing there you need to hide.. please do what you must to make them more prominent!

Two thumbs up!

Mark,
Very enjoyable!
I can understand how that phrase wouldn`t let you go without fleshing it out- the rest of the lyrics are good too (I would have liked to see them as there`s some wry humour its easy to miss). As Pat said, the guitar sounds great and I was also thinking I wanted the vocals more upfront.

Cheers,
Robert

An enjoyable listen. Mark.

The vocals are good! (just need to be turned up a tad).

Cool guitar licks (and tone).

All is good. We thought the write, the vocals, the cool riff
and the mix all made a great package.

Enjoyed the listen!

I had the same thought. Really nice song!! You did an excellent job with the vocals but they are kind of buried. Would love to see the lyrics printed. Guitar is way cool! Great job!! Take care. Greg

Hello Mark,

Yes, the vocals could be a little bit louder indeed.
But definitely a smooth sounding song!
