Hey all.
This is my latest effort.

Can anyone tell me if the leed vocal is too out front?

Also if the sound fx intro is too long.
All other advice welcome regards Rob

Old Homestead-SoundClick

Don’t go bye the homestead cos there’s no on there no more.
Its been twenty five years since they turned a key in the door.


All the faces of my childhood have faded and past me bye.
I wont go bye the old folks homestead as I know that I mite cry.


There’s a rusty windmill turning just by the old plum tree.
And the passion fruit defiant grows on the lavertree.

The chimneys tumbled down and the roof has fallen through.
The front gate lays decaying its become white ant food.
..............................................................................
And the sound of laughing children filled the mountain air.
The smell of country cooking makes me wish I was still there.
.............................................................................

I hear some one a whistling as I drift into a trance.
There’s foot steps on the porch where the old folks used to dance.

And if memories are all you have, then its time to look ahead.
Its fine to sit and reminisce but no time to regret.

There’s a head stone on the hillside the grass has crowded in.
Never lost to my memory what a wonder it has been.

Don’t go by the old folk’s homestead cos there’s no on there no more.
Its been twenty five years now its time to lock the door.

Robert,

Very good song. Since you asked for feedback, I would pull the vocal volume back slightly and reduce the reverb. I would then add a bit of reverb to the entire track, so that your vocal blends in with the mix instead of sitting on top of it. For my taste, I would drop the FX on the intro - I don't think the song needs it - it stands on its own very nicely.

Bob

Robert,

Nice song. I pretty much agree with bob except I personally think the FX is a nice touch.

Good job.
