  1. I believe you're on to something here. Very much dig the song and especially the instrumental break. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
  2. Thank you, David! Wow, thanks Lynn! Thanks Bob, that's high praise from the King of Hooks! lol, thanks Nigel, that's a boatload of synths. I know orchestral guys use a lot of instances but that kind of work is beyond me. I'm more of a little ditty kind of a guy. Thank you! Thank you for listening! There is a single acoustic guitar track, a single bass track, a lead vocal track and maybe three harmony tracks. There's reverb in there (Re-Matrix solo, the pro-channel version) and I use Izotope 9 to master. I also slapped in an Izotope imaging plug in to help fill in the holes. I used some pretty agressive settings on the imager. Thanks, Jesse. It's rather liberating. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
  3. Thank you for listening and providing feedback, Gary! I apologize for taking so long to respond, my Dad's been in the hospital for several weeks and it seems that my time is no longer my own. Melodyne is incredibly useful for creating harmonies and I often use it in the writing process, but usually once I have them I set them aside and record the harmonies the old fashioned way. It sounds a lot better to my ear that way.

    +1 on the Loggins & Messina comment. Beautifully detailed and well crafted mix with lots of space, not to mention a boatload of great performances. Quite a beautiful song!
  5. Really clean mix, wow! Nice vocals and good song, a pop style that takes me back! Guitars are great and the harmonies are killer.
  6. Thank you! I'm grateful you took the time to listen and comment.
  7. Your mixes are sounding pretty good these days. I always look forward to a new one from you and this one is great!
  8. Thanks for the listen, Mark. It's a real challenge to get a lean mix to sound reasonably full and present. I tried a bazillion things with this one.
  9. Thanks, Steve! I do try. I have a hard drive just full of crap I wouldn't let my dog hear. I figure if I just keep writing them, I'm statistically likely to produce a few good ones before the heat-death of the universe.

    THROWN AWAY

    Really good song with heartfelt lyrics, a quality mix and great performances, I can see why you keep this one around. Those keys are a perfect background for the laid back vocals. I also think it's pretty cool that you didn't put a chorus in there. Oh, and did I mention the great mix? Yeah, I guess I did. I enjoyed this one quite a lot.
  11. Thanks for taking the time to listen! Your comments did a world of good for this apprentice songwriter to read, Steve!
  12. Great mix, loved the drums! This reminds me of the fevered dream days of my youth in the 70's - a very good thing!
  13. Thanks, Wookie, I appreciate the loan of your ears and your Adams. Beats my ancient KRK Rokit 5's
  14. Tom, thanks for giving it a listen and thanks for your comments. Yes, that's exactly what I mean. I'm currently experimenting with a several songs that try to communicate as much as possible with as little as possible. This is one of them, as are my previous two, "Little Cloud" and "Eyes to the Ground" (also on that reverb nation page.) I'm trying to learn how to write songs that work for me with all my limitations as a musician and this is part of the process I've come up with.

    Great song, vocals and lyrics. Melody is catchy and interesting from beginning to end and the chord changes are wonderful, reminds me of Steely Dan. Love the use of synths and drums to drive things along and the musical interlude is sweet. I wish I could mix songs with half the clarity you have achieved here.
