Hey guys...I'm still remastering the "Prodigal" album I made with my kids...so yesterday I did this one, a soft contemplative ballad sung by my son Ian...it's without a doubt one of my favorites...hope you enjoy it...I stayed as simple as I could on the track, just acoustic, cello and bass.

BiaB stuff;
522 Acoustic guitar
1856 Cello
366 Bass

Vocals: Ian, Amber and me

This is a wonderful song. The vocals soar. The arrangement is a perfect compliment to the song. Professional sounding mix.

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

Dave and om...thanks for your gracious comments...it was a suggestion from a song I posted earlier that helped me make the decision to keep the arrangement minimal on this song which I'm convinced was the right choice for it...I really appreciate this forum and the comments and suggestions we get here...I take them all to heart...we all want our "children" to be properly dressed.
