Black to the core

I’m gonna pick up my guitar,
Rock and roll is in my heart.
I’m gonna pick up my guitar,
Rock and roll is in my heart.
Some kids have been saying
I’m too old to play like that.

I’m gonna play my guitar,
The blues are in my soul.
I’m gonna play my guitar,
The blues are in my soul.
I don’t care what they say
When I play I’ll never grow old.

I was born by the light of the new moon,
Black light black soul.
I was born by the light of the new moon,
Black light black soul.
And when I play, I guess
I’m black right down to the core (and proud of it, yeh!)

Good song. I enjoyed it much.

Guitar playing is hot. Great vocal, but I didn't hear any Welsh accent in it.

What Real Tracks did you use?

I knew this was going to be good when I read the title. Awesome guitar work. Loved your tune. Super vocal. Old school rock and roll. Well done

The dual solo part started out interestingly as there were a couple of unison notes but, in the end, the two parts were separate, not interlinked and playing against each other.
The vocal was solid but I reckon you ought to run an EQ across it until you find a big bump that reinforces the weaker frequencies and make the voice stronger.
You blended your guitar with "the band" really well.
