Time for some self pity.
Another cry in your beer song or should I say whisky?
All comments welcome. Rob4580



Nursing My Whisky


Nursing my whisky

Verse 1:
With lights dimmed down, I'm nursing my whisky
Been trying to hide away from the bustling din
I've been trying to stop my tears From flooding down.

Verse 2:
I been playing guessing games memory
It would seem all those heartaches remain the same
(G) Oh! Why can't I stop these tears from flooding down

Chorus:
My feet are such a long way off the ground
With the beating of my heart, can't hear a sound

Bridge



Chorus:
My feet are such a long way off the ground
With the beating of my heart, can't hear a sound


Verse 3:

So I'll have one last drink before the bar closes
I'll drink a toast to all those things I've lost
Wipe away those tears that are flooding down
Wipe away those tears that are flooding down

Oh, I really love this, Rob. What a cool feel. The bass reminds me of Right Hand Man by Nick Cave, but the vocal is so much better --so are the lyrics, and the other musicians. A terrific, catchy, write. So well done!!


Enjoy whatever happens!

It's a good, good thing Rob.
Marty meant, I think, Red Right Hand but I knew the sound he was referring to and he's 100% on the bass tone & place in the mix.
I was an huge fan of Cave until the Israel thing.
I wanted more - I wanted to hear more of the story.
You've left me wanting more so you win.

I didn't know you could 'nurse' a whiskey.
You can drink it if it's a single malt, or if it's blended, you can clean the bathtub with it.... But nursing?
You never stop learning.

That being said, I like your song. The opening bass grabbed me and didn't let go.
Very well done!

It's an odd idiom & I'm uncertain if it's Australian or universal but - "nursing" a drink means to drink quite slowly, usually while pondering one's circumstances.

Hi Rob,

I liked this very much - good lyrics, vocals and a catchy beat.

I would like to hear your vocals a touch louder.

Best Regards

Great singing, good lyrics, and the BIAB musicians are sounding mighty good here. I agree with Nigel that the vocs could be louder.

Hello Rob,

How can you feel sorry with yourself while making this lovely song?
Or its better to put it this way. You create great things when pouring tears in your whiskey.
I didn't know the expression 'Another cry in your beer', but immedialtly you get the picture. That makes it a nice expression, albeit a bad feeling.
In some way this song made me think of the famous tune of Peaky Blinders (without the bell). Same rhythm.

So, go ahead with feeling sorry and deliver us the good stuff!

Nice sound and groove. Dark and moody.

Vocal matches the mood well.

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

You’re really showing your versatility, Rob. We love this!

It has a great vibe and your vocal is nice and smoky to fit the atmosphere.
Your use of RT's is always impressive and this one is stellar especially with the great guitar solo and bass.

We tend to nurse our whiskeys whenever we have one, so as to get the most enjoyment of the flavor. wink

Cool!

Rob, this is a great sound. I love the groove and your exceptional vocal. Your choice of real tracks is perfect. Even the often times overlooked rhythm guitar is spot on. Excellent mix. I loved it, Tom

Hi, Rob !


I also loved the tune and the sound
and your vocal was performed in
accordance with your self pitying
mood as displayed in the lyrics !

PS: I prefer Brandy myself ...

One of your absolute best !

Cheers
Dani
