She Picks Me Up

Hi Everybody,

Here's another track off of my new album "Relics". I'm posting the full production version and the acoustic version - so listen to both if you like. Any comments and crits are welcome and thanks for listening.

Hi Doug, this song reminds me strongly of the seventies. Good old handmade rock.   But I'm not sure which of the two versions I like better. Anyway, both excellent.

I'm listening to the "un-plugged" version right now; stellar!

Liking that slap-back on the vocal. Its all Kirby, no doubt about that...
And that cow bell in the bridge, or is it in the badge 😉

Always a fan,

Though I like both versions, I prefer the acoustic track.  They both have a raw, powerful sound, but you recorded the acoustic guitar so well, that it just shines.  Keep em coming!

Hi Doug! I listened to the full mix. Excellent song, love the parts, love how they come together. What would you identify as the chorus in this song?

I'm hearing verse / prechorus / chorus   ?

I think one thing you might consider is adding an element that really boosts the chorus, like a backing pad or doubled vocal or something, a ha! An organ pad!!!   just to get the arena really rocking!

Very Tom Petty, awesome!

 

cheers,

-Tom

Harry C. - Thanks for giving both versions a listen - I appreciate it.

DeeringAmps - I like the slap back echo on the vocal as well - it seemed to fit the song. Yeah, the acoustic version was recorded at my previous address. Thanks for listening.

Lynn - Glad you liked the song - thanks for giving them a listen.

emeraldsoul - I haven't used an organ on a song in awhile - that's a good idea. I bring in another rhythm guitar for the chorus, so I thought that was sufficient to boost the chorus a bit.

Makke - Thanks for listening and commenting - I appreciate it.

Wookiee - Thanks for lending your furry ears to my song - and thanks for commenting.

I don't think I've heard you play acoustic before. I'd pick  the acoustic version if I had to choose a favorite mainly because it sounds a bit different from the Kirby style I'm used to. Not sure what that means really but it's a good thing.
