Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Howdy Nigel....

I'll genuinely echo all other comments.
It's a good reflection of the genre you note in the title.

Keep up the good work....

A man from the same era as me, I love western swing, the only thing missing, was a steel guitar, of course that's my opinion!!

Hi Ronnie,

You may be right - if I ever redid this song I might add a bit of Pedal Steel and maybe some fiddles.

Best Regards
Nigel

From Bob Wills to Asleep At The Wheel we have loved WS over the years
and have posted several.

And we played our share of it with friends and in a couple of bands.

All meaning we are not new to the genre and are, dare I say, qualified smile to state "Well done!!!"

Excellent job of capturing the feel with the fine write, vocal and mix.

Ah ha!!! As Bob would say.
