I
dig it. I didn't leave the page when I heard the vocals, and coming from me that's a compliment. :) You people who use Logic sound so good. Makes me want to take the plunge.

Thanks for comments. I would recommend taking the plunge and getting Logic, the new Logic Studio is really cool and much easier to use than Logic Express used to be.
Cheers

well developed post Steve
Production sounding very nice indeed - are you using a guitar for the bass or is it midi?

What a mellow fellow ;)

Hi Neil
Thanks for your comments. On this one I used my Hutchins guitar for bass (using the Logic dubwise setting). The strat rhythm and octave guitar bits are using an acoustic preset - the original sound was more jangly but I felt that was a bit distracting. Lead guitar is the normal strat tone
Cheers for listening

Great
balance in the vocal and backing on this excellent song..... very thoughtful and ponderous..... great arrangement too..... it's like a 'folk rock' isn't it? and it comes across as very professional to me, though it seemed to finish quite suddenly, regards and best wishes for the New Year, M

Mellow indeed!
A gorgeous subtle tune with a delicate but catchy chorus - delicate and subtle are adjectives I'd use for the production/arrangement as well - and lush!

poetry in the dark
sounds like Mark Knopfler sitting in with Double. A very sophisticated tune dude. Production is perfect - GREAT guitar sound. I like the changes too. This might be my new fav stevel tune.

mellow down
glad I caught your link in the chat, thanks

this is suave, and very relaxing. The guitar parts are well laid in the weave, and the vocals stand out with deep color. Very nice listen, thanks.
