Description
Re-do of a slow one you'll find among my earliest submissions here.

I used the keyboard to play the bass with a kind of upright bass sound to it. I guess this is a more jazzy approach.

Drums is also programmed in a midi channel in GB.

Lyrics
You give me what you think is best,
what you know as good.
And you think you´re doing all you can,
and that what you do is right.
But it´s wrong, yes so wrong.

You talk like a woman,
with allways something on your mind.
And you walk like no man,
ever sat a foot on your way.
sat a foot on your way.

I, I need someone special.
Someone not settled and done
I guess you spent time with me in vain.
'Cause I want some unlike you, babe.
so much unlike you.

Great sound here Thor - love the vox, the guitar, electric piano and the

Excellent
I am seriously impressed. This is an outstanding song. Nice vocal dripping
with passion and sung with gusto- keyboards are a great touch and the
lead guitar was understated and tasteful... perfect!

Excellent
I guess gusto (I had to look that word up) is what comes from the satisfaction of having the pleasure of making music... And having garageband as a perfect tool to collect the memories of it...

soothing sound
when reading the lyrics at first I thought you made fun of a feminin man wiht the line "And you walk like no man" haha. This is a really great track, you are a real talented musician. I really like your vocals on this one, dont think i have heard that good vocals from you before! And without joking about the lyrics i would like to say that i think they are very good. Great one Thor!

This song oozes and melts, and the lyrics are strong and honest. Guitar work is sparing and in the mood, and the pieces are all right for each other. You're definitely onto something really good

A lot of feeling
There is a lot of feeling in this tune. Though it's blues it really has a jazzy feel to it. Top notch in my book and a great addition to macjams. The guitar is excellent Thanks for sharing.

Sverige soul
Sverige soul...heh.. pulling my leg? he he:)

Alley-oop you give me such great support, and beeing such a fine artist yourself, it's a great honour when you listen and review my songs. Thanks for such encouraging support. I really appreciate it.

About the tech stuff... keyboard is a m-audio ozone. The piano sound on this is the el-piano from GarageBand with a tad overdrive, and also a tiny drop of chorus.

The acoustic guitar is an Ibanez recorded through a "Studio Projects B1" condensator mic. Added tremolo and reverb.

The electric one is a hollow body "Samick" korean, cheap guitar that is awsome to play.
Usually I play it through an amp, but this is infact straight trough the ozone (the ozone is also my soundcard). Added some overdrive or distortion, delay and reverb.

I have to mention that I bought a new pre-amp. Behringer Tube Ultragain Mic200, which all of this is filtered through.

Like The Sounds
The guitar sounds are great. I love the distortion in the electric
piano. I'd just watch the distortion is the solo guitar. Is it
intentional?

Could use a more developed ending.

very tasty keyboards and guitar solo. This one has smoky nightclub written all over it. Nice vocals and harmony, too. Overall sounds real professional. Hard to believe that bass is from a keyboard...

Great
Great sounding Chords. You always have such a cool approach to your tunes. A perfectly placed solo, a really hip bass line, a thoddi harmony,
here you put it all in and stir it up with a smokey smooth groove that is very very soulful and sooo sweet.
