Hi all. This will most likely be my last song for 2021.
A big thank you to all who listened and commented on my songs over the year,
and thank you to the PG music staff, who are probably run off their
feet by now.
Please have a safe holiday season.

I'll leave on the lights

First up, I used the solo track listed below, as it was set for 85 Bpm
you will notice it sounds a bit odd in places. I used the generate riff feature as well
to build what I needed.
(RealTracks in song: 2691:Guitar, Electric, Soloist CountryBalladBrentSimple Ev 085)

This is just another cry in your beer song.
All comments are welcome. Regards to all. Rob4580

Hello Rob
Very nice song
A great melody and very good fitting vocals
The harmonica and guitar solos really fit perfectly in your song
You could hardly play it better with "real" musicians.
Really well done Rob

Thanks for your kind greetings
I wish you and your family also nice and peaceful holidays
Stay healthy and keep writing great songs
Love greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Rob,

that's a nice one - with very generous lyrics...

You have a very pleasent voice, very warm - liked it a lot.
And I especially liked the use of that Brent Mason solo guitar.

All the best,

Stefan

Rob,
You have a great voice...there's a TINY bit of sibilance slipping through almost "old man whistle" type but, I think, more a result of processing that the voice.
Lovely song.
Stay safe as the storm season builds.


Cheers

Catchy arrangement - upbeat and melody.

You've got a nice voice, and it works nicely here. smile

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

Argh - it made me cry :-) but in a very good way. It's understated, beautiful and wistful. I loved it.

Hi Rob ...

Everything about this is top shelf. You already know how much I enjoy your vocals. And this song verifies the validity of my previous statements about that. A really nice - but sad - country ballad.

Good write, good vocal, good band - good everything. Loved my listen.

Take care and Merry Christmas.

Alan
