So Cold ..

Recommended Posts

Here's an acoustic ballad I've been going back and forth with for a while. Shortened it a few times but now settled on this longer version. Fictional lost love break up song from  a guy getting the last word in , but too tired to get excited .  Any feedback welcome. Thanks for the listen ..   mark    https://soundcloud.com/user-810058643/so-cold

Combination of Boz Scaggs and some George Benson thrown in for good measure.  Nice.  And your voice is slick!!

Yes a great listen on a Friday night, amazing , thank you . . . I had to laugh when JohnBee58 and David Sprouse said Boz Scaggs, because it is so reminiscent of that sound, but never thought it until it was mentioned . . . so much talent in the guitar work in all your songs I've heard here.

Lots to like here, that is for sure! Thumbs up, thumbs up. Now, there’s always a but, lots of low end, but I would like a bit more definition on the kick and bass. Both are better on the cans than in the car. Not muddy, just “there” but not well defined. There’s a high pitched percussive element in the right can that’s just a bit too loud on the Bose cans here. I love the tune.

Hey Mark
Wow one of those songs that takes me away to some tropical beach, pina colada in hand. Well maybe that's just me. Gonna play it again. I like it.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and fantastic comments. You always help me identify problem areas I'm not aware of.  I really appreciate the Boz Scaggs references , definitely take that as a compliment.  I love doing instrumentals but I've started working harder on vocal songs before my Old voice kicks the bucket for good.  Thanks again ...  mark

I love these sharper mixes. I think this is right in the pocket for this kind of material. Comes across excellent here. Much talent in the guitars and the singing!

Very cool track - I thought your vocal fit perfectly for the style of the song. I thought the mix was excellent.

I enjoyed the listen - didn't seem long to me.
