  1. I love it! Beautiful song and arrangement. Pretty chorus. Love your vocal work. I understand part of your lyrics but not many, but that doesn't matter. A great tune is universal. Nice work on the video too. Thanks for your "thumbs up" on my new song too. 🙂John B
  2. Man, this is nice, Mark. I've heard of the Cajon drum. I loved the way Santana used it in their earlier records, but you take it to a different approach and the cello is amazing. 🙂John B
  3. @Douglas KirbyThanks so much, Doug! 🙂John B
  4. @jack c.So sorry you don't like the song, Jack, but thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. My bass lines tend to be melodic. 🙂 🙂John B.
  5. Very enjoyable. The Doors-style organ is fantastic! Also, love your lead guitar work and vocal effects. 🙂John B
  6. All of my life I felt that it was my responsibility to make the people closest to me happy 24/7/365. If they weren't, for whatever reason, I've felt that it was my fault and I was letting them down, even if their depression had nothing to do with me. I think my wife has finally convinced me that it's not always my fault. https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14242185 Also, I did 2 mixes. One has compression on the master buss (Waves Master Buss Compressor) and one doesn't. This mix has the buss compression. At first, I liked it better without but the dynamics in the last verse seem so much tamer with it. Hope you enjoy it. I know it's a bit emotional. 🙂 John B
  7. Thanks so much, Tom. I appreciate the comment. 🙂 John B
  8. Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm sending the Rode back because it's no better than the Apex 435 I already have. I thought I'd try it mostly because Sweetwater ironically allows a 30 day refund on mics. I find that odd, especially given the current situation, but they do. 😃 John B
  9. Thanks, David. 🙂 John B

    Parts of it sound like it could very easily fit into a type of adventure movie soundtrack like Batman or a Terminator type of opening or closing theme. It's a very effective piece. 🙂 John B
  11. Thank you, Nigel! 😃 John B
  12. @bjornpdx Thanks! See! Some of my stuff does rhyme. 😉 @Old Joad Glad to hear from you. Thanks! @Wookiee Thanks so much, Mr. Furrypaws for your feedback and being an extra set of "ears". Sometimes I do wonder what my stuff sounds like on other people's setups. Stay safe and healthy, all! 🙂John B

    I'd try rolling off some hi EQ. 🙂 John B
  14. This used to be my drum machine. I gave it to Josh, who will find something better for it than what it did sitting in my basement. 🙂John B
  15. I ordered a Rode NT1A and it should get here in a few days. Should I have ordered an NT1 instead? I know there are several people here who use Rode mics. My Avantone CV 12 that I've been using since 2015 doesn't seem to give me what I want and I'm thinking of selling it. I have an old (cheap) Apex condenser that I recently dug up that sounds better and I'm hoping the Rode will finally be the mic that "loves my voice". 🙂John B
