Lyrics
trailer up, gather up your bag...your on a mission...get those horse reigns in your hands

gather up your things....you've got places to see......find that pathway in front of you

pass those trees, coming up from the distance...make sure you wave as you pass by.....

baby...I'm going on my adventure ride....and I am galloping here with my mind......I'm gonna run, gonna walk right here........I'm having the time of my life..

I'm steering clear of that tree trunk in the middle of the road....i saw it coming....

baby now, I got stung by a thorn...and my horse is bucking me up and down.. I'm covered in mud...I've got to get up and calm myself down...

get up and gather up your things.....here you are...standing in the same spot.....call your horse to your side.............

mellow and introspective
I like your voice, your style. I like stream of consciousness stuff. I suggest bringing up the solo instrument in volume in the brief interludes. Nice keyboard work...good attack. A separate quality mic would really enhance this. Should I assume you were using the iBook's built in mic?

yeah, I've been using the little pin hole built in mic......it gets a lot of static.....i haven't figured out the m-audio preamp with my condenser mic......simplicity is king for me............thanks for the input.................todd

Not Sure Where
But , I sure like how we Got there.

Smooth and sympathetic Melody with trance-like Vocals. Really like
the changes in instrumentation and emphasis as it moves (Bells are
Brilliant).

With Humor thrown in, it borders on poetry, which is infamously
difficult to put melody and alt rhythm to.

Like it a Lot.

Best,
rtc

hmm
im having to listen to it again. there's some things in the vocals i like. but something seems to be missing a little. when it hits the high notes vocally i don't like it so much. it seems im not sure a bit quick and harsh a little. the lyrics are creative, and there's a good vocal style. i'm trying to be constructive but can't figure out exactly what it is i think could be worked on so im sorry if this doesn't make much sense.

Nice stuff
This is a pretty good song, I like the lyrics, and the music is good also. A couple of times your voice reminded me of John Lennon, kind of sounded a bit like him.

Very nice, I look forward to more of your songs.

Cool Tune !
I like the sleigh bells with the drum track. Nice rhythm.
Kind of John Lennon sounding like the other revuer said. With a moniker like TBone I would think you would be a Blues musicianlol. This is a nice tune.

likeable song
There is something about the voice that sounds like a combination of
John Lennon and Gino Vanelli. I know you've heard of the first but at least
investigate the second and you will see what I mean. The music also goes
more toward the second artist. Keep it up.
