nice treatment of topical issue.
I really liked the change in the guitar background around the 2:00 mark. BGV's real nice. Guitar(s) all sounding great.
This would make a good PSA!
Hopefully we'll be out of this soon!

Hi Capn ...


This is a really cool song! Great vocals and a super arrangement. As mentioned, topical and a good message. I really enjoyed this! That b/g guitar around 2:00 gives new life to the song ... refreshing and an excellent choice.

Really nice work! Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

That vocal has a rain barrel tone to it.
Seems a nice arrangement but it's also a little polite.
Could use some beef.
Nice narrative.


Cheers

I think I understand you comment about needing more beef and being polite.

Rain barrel is a new term to me.
I'm never happy with my vocals ( not a great singer for sure) but, I don't understand the rain barrel comment.
Please elaborate so that I might be able to address that.

Good tune.

I will not accept this as the "new normal" and refuse to wear a face covering.

BUT.... you did a good job on "covering" this topic from the other side.

Add nothing that adds nothing to the music.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but you can't do both.

Thanks for listening and providing your point of view.

It's obvious we disagree on what's the right thing to do to be a responsible citizen.

This is not the place for a debate on social responsibility so, I'll hold my comments on the subject.

Hi Moto.
I like a lot of this one. Melody and arrangement.
For me, there may be a little too much reverb on the instruments.

Captain,
A gently topical lyric, well sung and thoughtfully arranged;for my taste the spoken word section distracted a little-its on message though.

Thanks,
Guess it's a matter of taste and I can't question the taste of a listener.

Thanks for that,
I suppose I could have gone in a different direction.
I generally like to generate these songs in a short timeframe so
I usually go with what comes to mind in the moment.

Has the sound that suggests a long narrow space, like singing into a tunnel but smaller. You have a "halo" around your voice that makes it sound like it's in a different room to the music. IF you used the native BIAB preset reverb on the BIAB tracks that would be PART of the problem.

Hello CaptainMoto,

Very pleasant composition. Simple but efficient arrangement. The lead guitar with its reverb is very pleasant. You used the biab voices in a well-organized way.
