I am not sure what I think about this song...lol  There was a lot of hair pulling and teeth gnashing  to get too this point.

Don't worry, I put chicken wire up around the stage just in case!

Not a big one for country songs but this worked here the mix sounded reasonable on the Adam's.

I think you have all the elements here and I like Country and Western and Southern Fried Rawk and Blues and . . .  if this were my mix I 'd kick the main vocal up at least a db and tuck the acoustic guitars underneath it. Maybe a touch more reverb or delay on the lead violin.

 

The slide guitar and the guitars are great adds, and the drums/bass are solid and know their place.

 

is it "past rushes" or "pass rushes"  ??   :)

 

Very well done!

cheers,

I really like the story. The violin fits in very well. The vocal needs to come up some more.
Overall it's a great song.

do not gnash your teeth

you only have two pair

and the baby teeth are so transient

I like a good murder ballad?  or did I get something wrong

I think you should call T Bone Burnett I do

gooder than honey in September

Agreed with all aboove on "up the vox", "drop the acoustic" and add a dash of verb to the fiddle.

Good song, good story line.

Good to see you back "planobilly", I remember you from "before".

Agreed.
Now I'm a guy who loves an amp that drives like a fine Italian Sports Car!
But, given the overall instrumentation, sound and feel on this one; big clean strat!
That's what this one needs.
Your song, your production, but if I'm behind the glass here, we'd tangle (in a most respectful tone)
unless I didn't get my way....

👍's
love your tune, I really do!

Thanks to everyone for all the kind words.

It's been right at a month since I posted this. I have not listen to it again until today. After listening, the song is OK, not something I would write home about but I think I can take down the chicken wire...lol Anymore I just write songs, country, ghetto rap, rock, pop...whatever  comes to mind on any given day.  I think many people generally only write in one or two styles. Perhaps I would get better faster if I did.

I been going over all your comments for improvement and will go try some of them out.

Thanks again,

 

Billy

Great vocals ,  I just think the telecaster could have been  better served with a litle less reverb,  once again  I loved the vocals, loved the song
