Lyrics
I see you struggle, I watch your fight
And all you tell is outside your fence
So what is good, what is in your sight
I kind of wait for you to make amends

What kind of load pulls you down my friend
It takes away what you love in life
I hope you know how to make it mend
You should learn how to love again

And when I see you around my friend
will it be just like yesterday
And when you see me around again
I hope you tell me that you're OK

How come you find it so hard to move
Is your awareness just blurred from fear
Let your feelings make the groove
even if it makes you shead a tear

Terrific!
What a nice mix! I usually don't go for effected vocals like this but I'll
make an exception because it was so well done. Instrumentation is
beautiful- I really like the soft flow of this song... and the organ was a
perfect addition to this.

Terrific!
I was very on and off if I should use the fx on the vox. But came to that it brought some good into the mix.

Thanks for mentioning the organ.

Moving
This was really a touching piece and it was very well excecuted, Thoddi. Very sweet. I like the vocal fx. I like the vocals/I like the lyricis/I like the song structure, the way this flows through me...I like the guitar work and the overall instrumentation. I really like the guitar solo at the end. Maybe you can tell, that I'm typing as I listen/ That harmonica is nice too.

All very well done. Love those chord changes. Man this is just sweet.............. And now, we have made it to tears. I think that I'm done here. Thanks T

Great Harmony
This sounded really good with the cans...Your harmonies are excellent
and I loved how it built up and went into a percussive arrangement.
The guitar is top notch. Every thing else works well. I noticed you
used the pitch option on the back up vocals. Nice touch...I use it on
occasion myself.

Thanks for sharing

Regards

Great Harmony
Its exciting to work witgh GB. It may be simple but it really has the things needed for making a great demo recording. The pitch effect that came with ver. 2 is fun to use:)

Glad you liked it Texas!

Mellow and nicely textured
I love the unique feel you give to this, the mellow textures, mixed
together in such a way that brings out the sense of separation and
concern you write about in the lyrics. My ear wanted a little bit more of
something in the lyrics, something to give the song motion, or something
more about you, a bridge type perspective change to lift it beyond the
single moment on the sidewalk and into your eyes more, if that makes
sense. Your songs have a special sound I always enjoy.

Mellow and nicely textured
I really like the way you comment on songs Tobin. I guess you always turn stones to look and see what lays underneath them:)
Your comment on the lyrics makes good sence to me.
And its nice to hear that you like the sound of my songs.

Thanks!

OOOH
Thoddi, I love that vocal effect you have at the begining, reminds me of
Imogen Heap ( Hide and Seek)
Wonderful lyrics ( damn! had to shed a tear) and sung beautifully.
Excellent song Thoddi

Like this a lot
Like the other version I like this a lot. You know how to work the guitar. I seem to remember that i loved the organ sound from the last version, and i still do. I have been searching for an organ sound like that, what kind of organ are you using? This is a very soothing piece, like it alot. You have very nice characteristics in your voice, it sounds very nice. Looking forward to hear more of your stuff!!

Like this a lot
Hey selters, nice to see you around here:)
Organ is the "soul organ" in GB, with a tremolo effect. The one on the first version is "old radio organ" which you probably will find on most of my earlier songs here.

Thanks for your comments, appreciate it:)

My friend
Do you record live drums, or are you using synth tracks? Nice work on
the harp. Cool song.
Check out my latest song called We Three Kings
thoddi said 4334 days ago (November 12th, 2005)
My friend
Thanks for mentioning the harp.

The drums on this is penciled in on a midi track. I have found that if I use premade loops I will have to adjust the song and my playing to those drumspatterns. I then tend to loose the original beat I intended for the song.
In this case I do it the other way around, adjusting the drums to the intended beat.

Love the vox
Love the vox effects (and the straight bits - nice voice Thor) - moving
tune, good use of keys and generally a very good song. I really like the
way it builds - interesting arrangement. Guitar and bass work are also
done really well - excellent all round performance!

Mighty Fine
Has a sweet Allman Brothers sound to it. Pretty guitar playing, good
vocals and tasty melodies. That recurring, airy vocal sounds like Seal, and
I do hope you take that as a compliment. Vey nice composition.

In English, that would be 'Very nice composition.'
