Fantastic choice of styles, clean, sweet guitar lines,

'Lifeline', very important sharing point for folks helping each other.

Great choice of material.

Thanks Scott. I double tracked the vocals on the chorus. Not using an effect, I just sang the chorus twice and turned down one of the vocal tracks to like half the other one.

Excellent song - very strong all around, with a nice balance of instruments, vocals. Great theme and lyrics that really hit home too. I always enjoy a nice upbeat, catchy tune.

Strummer,

Good and engaging acoustic sound out of the gate—really like how those guitars pick up in the chorus. From a production standpoint, once those rhythm guitars really kick in, I would have like the vocal to come a bit more, or the rhythm guitars to be dialed down—in either case, just a tad--nothing major really. Doesn’t seem like anyone else has commented in that regard so it may just be me, so take it with a grain of salt. Really nice work on this one, Strummer. Very good tune!

Best regards,

Deej

Deej, thanks for the feedback. I did try to dial up the vocal a bit by double tracking them just in the chorus, but I guess I didn't do it quite enough. But I appreciate both the encouragement and the constructive criticism. You guys are helping me get better. Take care!

It sounded as if the audio started a few moments after the playing.
Nice arrangement and an excellent message.
