yes
They are live drums . Just a bass drum and snare. I worry so much about over producing and adding too much to a song. Im from the school of its not the notes. Its the space between! And I did have harmoies during the verses. Maybe Ill add it in again!!! Thanks Jack!!!

Yeah,
I can't make out all the lyrics.. what there are of them. It sounds like you got the hook, but still no fish. Like the choral addition. Keep that, definitely. Send a post to the lyric Santa and you might get what you've been hoping for,... that is, if you've all been really good boys. Thanks.

Yeah, okay.
But you mislead in this description. You like it all right, just the way it is..minimal lyrics and all. "Just listen to my side". Okay, getting it. If you like it, then it is finished. :)

Thanks
Thanks Feter. You listen to everything........I believe you when you say that it has a southern rock feel to this song. I just didnt think of it that way when recording...But you have to let the listeners decide what genre you play. Thanks for the listen !!!

yargh!
a little loose on the timing here and there, but the song itself sounds pretty sweet. I feel like the occasional junky, overdriven rhodes twirl would fit in really well here. The chorus is brilliant!

keys
Extra keys was an idea I had to start. Maybe Ill mess with it some more. But nine out of ten times I dont redo too many songs at home. If I choose them to go to the studio. I redo them. As far as the timing. Im not a drummer. I want real drums not loops. So my drumming is a bit off. Thanks for the stop over and listen!!!

Great great great
Hah... deceptively simple. Great wave, esp. on the vox harmonies. Great vocal delivery and nice, clear guitar voicings. It's what I'd like to hear more of, that so many people overlook: reg'lar ol guitar-based pop-rock. Kind of Kinks, kind of early Who ... like one of my favorite songs of all time, "Happy Jack."

And Im sorry for comparing it to anything. It's great.

It certainly seems unfinished but is definitely a great start. Good beat and melody. Love the Beatle-esque back up vocals. Here's your sign. Nice job

Well, it sounds good to me. I can hear adding some more electric, maybe harmonica, but it's cool as is, too. You rock!

tempie said 3708 days ago (April 23rd, 2009)
space between
has a great 'cross canadian ragweed meets dylan' feel...cool break/chorus - i'd bring it back a time or two. Cool piano riff. Definitely spice the drums up - this tune seems to want some barroom crashing drums. And totally agree with you that its not the notes its the space between...been having that conversation alot lately.

Diggin it
Love the bass , bass drum hit. there is some timing issues, but its got great structure. Everything is real, drums and all. That alone is worthy of a big thumbs up from me. I agree with Bud about beefing it up.

Many places you could go with this. A solid groove going on here. Whatever you choose to do don't let that get away. Nice stuff for sure.
