From what...
...Ive seen of photos of bizarre, he looks looooads like your dad. Beautiful beautiful song - you can obviously sing. Great first post, Road King. I think this would be an extra amazing track with some work on the production quality. However, its still lovely in its simplicity.

Welcome
Sounds like there's a powerful distinctive voice behind the extremely
rough production. Look forward to hearing some more stuff.

The
song itself is very nice and touching , the main problem is the production
there is way to much reverb get rid of about 1/3 of the reverb and you
will have a much better finished product. However it still a great tribute to
your Father.

Welcome to MacJams!
Hard to think and write with your brother throwing up my icon in the
corner...

I'm with what a lot of folks have written so far:

This has got powerful drive, great acoustic guitar strumming, and man,
you can sing! REALLY strong singing!

I'm having a hard time getting the lyrics because of how much reverb
there is and how sproingy it is... got something of a metallic sound to
it... I'd try another reverb preset or whatever, and pull it back a little...
you've got this strong voice, so a little reverb'll go a long way...

The other thing is that your level is really hot, and on my set-up here
it's into the red and distorting like crazy... The distortion gets in the
way of the sound...

You've got what sounds like a powerful song here, and a cleaner
production will bring it across to more listeners more powerfully. Using
a compressor will keep the level feeling hot while keeping the
recording clean.

Awesome first post.

Ed

Nice
Very nice song man I love the lyrics its like it tells a story in the end of it all. The guitar part also goes very well with it. It's a great song and I'm sure your father would be very happy and I'm sure he was a special guy especially if you are willing to do something like this for him in the end of it all very nice man very nice.

Nice tribute to your dad
I lost my Dad about seven years ago to cancer. So this hit home with me. Grest song and vocals and guitar accompanyment. I like the others here was put off be the excessive reverb, If your recording live in a room better to record dry and just let the natural reverb do it's thing. I learned about adding too much reverb early on in my own recordings, It's like adding salt in cooking. There's a fine line between too much and just enough.
