I am heading out on the road again for a couple of months. Most of the places we go to are out of cell phone range. I will check back in when I can. Everybody stay well!

I was going through my loop library and found this nylon latin guitar. I thought it was perfect for the song I was thinking of.

Santa Fe


Once I had a settled life I thought I ‘d made a home

A pretty girl with eyes black as night

But a burr got under my saddle off I had to roam

branded forever when she cried


Desert wind keeps blowing in

Thoughts of long ago

Not sure how I ended up this way

California’s Fine but she’s still on my mind

Since I heard that Kacey’s back in Santa Fe


There’s nothing like a sunset on a high desert plain

To help a man see where his trail goes

The cowboy life can rope you in in ways you can’t explain

Make you give up everything you’ve known


Desert wind keeps blowing in

Thoughts of long ago

Not sure how I ended up this way

California’s Fine but she’s still on my mind

Since I heard that Kacey’s back in Santa Fe



Desert wind keeps blowing in

Thoughts of long ago

Tom,

An excellent write. Simple, solid, saying all it needs to in short order.

Your usual excellent vocal. Distinctive - like the "distintive" greats - Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall...

Great tracks all around. Your mixes always POP. They bring my speakers ALIVE.
And they always have tasty elements sprinkled throughout.

This one really "sticks with ya". The hallmark of "done right". In all regards.

fj

Have great (safe) travels!

Hello Tom ...

Totally loved this! Every nuance of the recording is perfect. And the mix is full without being busy. I agree with you about the nylon guitar loop. You have a very distinctive sound that screams "Tom Adams Here!"!

I do not understand one single word of this: Recorded in Logic Pro X
Plug Ins : Nectar 2, Neutron 2, Ozone 8, Tonal Balance, Waves LinMB, Waves, L3-LL Multi Limiter, Scuffam Amps S-Gear, Waves Vocal Rider, Waves Bass Rider

Well, the Royalty Free Loops is within my comprehension!

Wishing you the very best. Be safe on your trip ...

Alan

This is perfect - the melody and RT's, the story, the song, the vocal.

I was hooked in less than six seconds.

Standing ovation, Tom.



Careful on the road.

Great singing, great song, and I loved those guitar fills. I loved the way that it led into your chorus, and the all too brief solo. Stellar!

Bud's first thought was Marty Robbins meets Eagles.

Janice's was, "It makes me want to watch a western movie or read a western novel."

Man, that vocal and acoustic guitar are outstanding. And the write is equally top bar.

"There’s nothing like a sunset on a high desert plain
To help a man see where his trail goes"

A fav of many great lines.

The production? What's left to say? Pro studio sound ALL the way.

Janice said she'll be singing it all day smile

J&B

Hi TommyAD,

Wow, what a cool tune!
Like a big ole bite of the southwest if I've ever heard it.
Such a complex mix of instruments that sounds so simple and clean.
"Since I heard that Kacey’s back in Santa Fe"
This line tells me that it's kind of a personal thing with you.
Otherwise you may have used Maria or Consuelo...
Well, at least you don't rust in the high desert...
I enjoyed listening to it. Thanks for posting!

The layers of guitars really stood out for me. A bit of mystery is felt in that sound.

Good vocal performance and tune. Very enjoyable!
