Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

This is my first song post here on the new forums, and a very long time since my last song post on the old forums.  Very cool to be back.  I wrote this back in 1992.  Here goes:

Hi Donny.  Solid song and performances.

Everything is clean and clear in the mix however the piano is drowning the vocal. It sounds to me that you're not confident in the vocal but you have a really nice voice - bring it forward.

Thanks for the listen and comments.  Lol that is super perceptive of you.  I haven’t really tracked vocals in years, so indeed, I felt a little shaky doing that.  I may do them again.  I’ll try that adjustment on piano.  I had put more effect on it and turned it up slightly for this version.

Yeah, now I can see the link loading motion if reloading this page but it disappears soon... ?
I think it was visible before.

nice tune, agreed on piano down a little, vocals up. Maybe a "C" section or a bridge. I dunno. It's a bopper with a nice vocal.

 

cheers,

The thing that impressed me most was this had to have been done using Tape. So there's no.. "Let me go back and fix this one part". (well sure we had "Punch in" but not like today when we needle everything to death by editing and editing. So even though I wasn't that impressed with the song, I can step back and take it for what it is.. A song recorded in the raw elements.
