Throw some verb on that vox.... surf is known for verb.

Heard some TOP influences in there too.

I try to stay out of the ocean because being in it puts me somewhere other than the top of the food chain.

Hi Jan and Bud

I try to sound big and menacing also but of course I'm just a softie at heart.
Nah nah on the video. I'll pass also.

Cheers.

Great suggestion Herb.

Why didn't I think of that?
Probably went overboard with the verb which certainly changes the new version.
I think it's an improvement.

I think the ocean is for fishes and nowadays just let them be.
Still like fish & chips though.
When we eat them that's ok. Not the other way round.

Cheers.

wow, Rich this is so ominously enthralling. The arrangement, the lyrics and the phrasing lured me into the deep. Great job.

Definitely has that shark predator feel. I love our vocal styling on this one. Your lyrics are always interesting, captivating and unique. A great listen, Tom

Hello, Richard

It is a very rare surf song.
I listened to the surf songs for the first time that sharks come out.
The bow bass is also unusual. it's so cool.
It sets the scary mood for this tune, it is very effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Wow Rich,

That hard rock approach really works.
You managed to turn it into a typical original RichMac song!
Very nice!

Hi Shigeki

Not many surf songs about sharks.
A few Hawaiian ones though. Well one called Tiger Shark anyway.
I wanted the song to be somewhat sympathetic to the shark.
Thanks for your supportive comments.

Cheers.

Hi Rich,

You don't hear many songs about sharks! This might be the first I've heard. What an eerie story - and so well told/sung! This really works for you - definitely one of your very best, in my opinion. Cool stuff - loved it!

Alan

Cool song RichMac!! You've done everything right as others noted. I used to boogie board a lot in the "Red Triangle" and always gave some thought to "the men in the gray suits" as some call them. Excellent job on this!! Take care. Greg
