Still in the early stages of completion.

All suggestions very welcome!

Oh a bit of doo-wop - love it

Amazing vocal - as for crits, how about some honky-tonk piano and maybe experiment with some more variation in the percussion.

Looking forward to the final version

Both excellent suggestions!

I plan for some background female vocals and main harmonies to my voice and I will try out your advice! Thanks Andy!

Okay, the female vocals went in, my own harmonies with the main vocal in the chorus, the brass (you got to listen for it) and a bit of honkytonk piano as well!

I also added the electric lead guitar solos, I played them on my hollow body Grote guitar.

Mine is like this but matte red.

Thanks for the awesome comments peeps!

This song would not be possible to the extend that it is without the helpful advice from this forum!

Much love Cakewalk peeps!

This was sung through the Shure SM7B going through the GAP Pre73 MKIII.

It was recorded at 48khz 24bit through the Rodecaster Pro II

I want to also thank the people who have been suggesting that I better soundproof my vocal room (studio).

 It occurred to me your thinking, even the slightest bit of bounce back into the mic will cause a doubling of the signal going into the mic. 

This will wreak havoc on transients as well. 

It took me a while for that to sink in, as does many things these days. 

All the best peeps!

Love it. Reminds me of the 50s channel on Sirius radio and that's a huge compliment.
50s chord changes, piano triplets, falsetto - you have it all down so well.
