I had a bit of a computer melt down, aint been around for a few weeks.
Think I got it all fixed now,,,,,,,,,,,I hope!
It will take me a while to catch up on all the new songs.

Here's one I did over the holidays.
I know people are hoping for the best in the New Year, this one reminds us, It aint over yet.

BIAB bass and drums, the rest is all me.
thanks for listening.

Hi Captain,

yout're right: It ain't over till it's over.

Powerful tune, nailing the issue in every aspect. Very impressive and well done. Grat vocal and guitar playing.

All the best for 2021, take care,

Stefan

Thanks Stefan,
Most of my songs are inspired by current events, sometimes the truth is painful.

I really like the mood and melody of this track. Maybe a bit too much treble and not enough bass, but I don't have studio monitors so I could be wrong.

Loved the intro. Interesting when your song was starting on Soundcloud I was looking at the volume display in the song. I had a feeling this was going to be a really cool song. Definite ear candy. Super vocal and loved the guitar. Awesome piece of music. Well done

Hey Paul,
Thanks for the comments.
Studio monitors or not, the goal is to make it sound good on any listening platform.
looks like I've got work to do.

This is a great song, and I'm afraid you are right about things not being over at all. You have an awesome voice!! I would also think about pushing a bit more the bass, and maybe putting the guitar and some drums a bit less loud. These are details and in any case it can just be me. But anyway, you composed a great powerful tune here!

This is fantastic. Everything in this fits perfectly. Super vocal, great instrumentation (super guitar chops), and great sad but true lyrics, all set in the perfect mix!

This reminded me of The Doors. I am a big Door's fan and this song sounded a lot like what they did.

Loved it!

Thank you Mario,
I was'nt shooting for a "Doors" vibe, funny though, my wife made a similar comment when was working on the track.
That's I high bar to shoot for.

The tune captures the mood perfectly. Dark. Just like the days. You and the band play the instruments masterfully. That lead guitar is wicked.

Moto..while the BIAB components are helpful on this track, it’s really your personal talents that make it so appealing...the guitar work and vocals are outstanding.

Personally, I sometimes think that when you try to be specific in a lyric and decide to incorporate ideas, words, and phrases that are very topical, referring the listener particularly to current events, as is in this case, but it could be references to people or personal situations, or even life experiences, there is something on the artistic or poetic level that loses a little bit. I tend away from this in my own work. This is just a personal preference for me, and I’d be interested in your take on it.

Nonetheless, excellent track.

moto,

A good sound. Appropriately "dark". Good pumping bass. Good guitar tone. Nicely played.

Good mix. A good listen.
