Description
Hi all

I've added a rhodesy keyboard solo to the end of RSorensen's excellent song:

These Odds by rsorensen

The majority of the song is unchanged. I tried to keep the solo "natural" sounding by not doing much time fixing. Hope it doesn't sound too loose and fits well with the song.

Here is RSorensen's original song description:

"Well I've been here a year now and I guess this here is my anniversary post. I've always wanted to write a song with a 50s ballad style progression and I finally got around to it. To those of you that aren't fans of slightly filtered vocals, I apologize. But I gotta say I'm loving them lately. I tried this song with clean vocals and it just didnt sound right to me. Lately I've been listening to a ton of Sparklehorse too (who filters his vocals often), and you can definitely hear it in this.

There's a spot for a solo after the last chorus, and I tried a few things that just didn't stick, so I left it open. If anyone wants to add something there feel free. I think a bluesy Rhodes or a lap steel solo would sound killer, so if anyone wants to jump in, please do.

I'm pretty happy with this one, but as always I'm open to suggestions for improvement, so feel free to offer. Thanks for listening. Happy Birthday to me. I love this place!"

Lyrics
you tell me you wont say goodnight
you tell me it's too hard this time
but I'll come back to you again
I'll come back if you'll let me in

We have played this game before
We both have walked in and out that door
But this time it feels different
Yeah this time I think you mean it

And I don't like these odds
you're giving me to gamble with
And I won't play these games you're playing
because I'll never win

I spent all my time on making you happy
Before I realized we're not meant to be
The glowing stars shoot out from your eyes
Nobody can say we never tried

And I don't like these odds
you're giving me to gamble with
And I won't play these games you're playing
because I'll never win

Good to get your stamp of approval. I kind of pushed the overdrive to try to fit in with the electric guitar sounds you had already.

Ah man!!
This is a great addition to an already solid piece of work. There was a gap in the song and you've done a good job in filling it.

remember this
Like what you did with the keyboards. It doesn't take anything away from the original.
