you got it :-) I think this is an AWESOME blues song, great music idea, super solid (sounds like an ancient classic already), love the lyric direction and chorus. I have always liked your singing voice... however, now that you have sketched this out, and I hear this as a "sketch"... I think you need to get some really solid guitar/drum/singing on this, like NOW! I already hear this song in my head like it deserves to be played. This is worth doing right... we need more build-up toward the chorus, and the chorus needs more harmony-singing (Femme-vox too? Know anyone? Wink) Need to practice the guitar-work, nothing fancy, but good solid playing, good solid singing, hit those notes, but also keep your current very-good emotional bite in your voice... please polish this up! I'd love to hear the next iteration of this. Good to hear another one from you!

Thank you for your thoughtful critique. :-)
Drak, I honestly don't know what this site would do without you.
This is a sketch and my vocals are the weakest link.
I shall try to get LaLa Divina to shed some light with her amazing voice.

Agree w/ Drakonis
Def use this a sketch. Its good but I wouldnt use it as a track to show off your abilities. Like I do this also record something just to show people, but then if it gets enough positive review I go back and rerecord it.

I think a few parts deserve a build up. In your "rain" chorus somehow make it more upbeat. LOVE the falsetto though. Try and sing a few more words with that. Honestly I liked that a lot. I think there was a lower harmony somewhere near the begining... but that voice sounded like it was dragging a little bit.

Really enjoyed the song though. Like just make a build up in one of your chorus's I'd suggest to give a 'full' feeling for the audience.

Nice work!

Feter, you heard the vintage tone of my highly modified Fender Stratocaster.
I could tell you what I've done to it to get all that tone...but then secret agents would have to come to your house in the middle of the night...
Only kidding, thanks for listening my friend.
Every time I see you online, I smile.
It's like seeing an old friend.

Very nice...
I think you must have recorded this at some different bit rate because the "normal" player the top one distorted the heck out of this. Quicktime did ok.

Beautifully done! Nice vocals! Everything simply fits.

Lonely Blues
Thanks so much for listening to my lonely blues song.
I hope to record a final version based on the helpful comments from Drakonis and Green44.

Let it rain!
Very nice guitar tone as others have mentioned. I would work on the mix as it is a bit unbalanced in the levels of the instruments should be adjusted to support whatever you decide as the main thing in the song (i.e. vox or bass, etc.) But I know you said it was a ruff and as a ruff it is very well done. The main guitar line reminds me of a classical song that I can't remember atm..... I think you know the one. But it also reminds me of some classic rock tunes from the 50's like house of the rising sun style. I would love to hear a guitar solo as well. :P

Enjoyed it!

Oh yeah,
It will be a killer. So, I'll look for the newer version. Your audience will collapse from the emotion. Thanks.
