Description
(GET YOUR VOLUME UP FOR THIS ONE,PLS) This song has some version history.. JD's release got us really good comments on that version. I created new guitarparts on the verse and a bridge/solo and I had the honour of creating a sort of end-result with jdholliday singing his beautifull lines and me myself on guitars/(software)drums/(software)bass and I will not forget to mention crissew , he provided the backing vocals on this one, thanks again for that too...

It is still open for feedback....

Pro stuff
Brilliant job on the vox. Loving how you can hit the highs. Many wish they had pipes like yours.

Nice hook. "No, I can't..."

Really good song guys. I could hear this on the radio or in a film.

Egbert made me sing the verses an octave higher than I thought I could, so glad he did!

I Said It Before
I love this song. Great vocal. The transition from full voice to falsetto is great. Love the guitars playing octaves swirling around the stereo field. I also like the guitar playing the lines during the chorus.

What a pleasure
to hear this song come to fruition, I remember the first time I heard the music, and I was hooked, and working with you Egbert has been a joy, the process of posting/feedback is awesome and I'm so happy you pushed me and guided me on the melody getting me to sing it an octave higher when I didn't think I could, beautiful creative process, and I'm not bragging but man I love this tune, everything about it completely inspired by your music, you did a lot of work on this and wow what a first completion, I'm so happy for you and so very grateful to have been allowed the opportunity to be a part of this, 100% satisfied.... thrilled! thank you Egbert!

I am happy with the song too and who knows we'll collab on more songs like this, create an album and perform on some festival, preferably (is that a word??) somewhere in the States, hahahaha.... No seriously, you can do a lot with that voice, fits in a lot of music so I am sure to hear other good work from you, i will be following your projects with interest!! Thanks again!!

Top Notch guys... The true spirit of collaborating. At first I was like, gee, the levels are so low... Then, I hear this little voice, 'turn it up, stupid!' Oh yaaaaaaa.......

So
you mean the upload volume is to low compared to what is normal on MJ?? I will have to look into that, but I think it is not possible to change the file on a song here on MJ... Thanks anyway and glad you liked it ;)

Well done
this came out great. Love how you mixed in my backing vocals in there. Sounds great. Sounds tight, has Chris De Burgh sound to it. Fun to get in on this project. Nice tasty new guitar stuff in there too.

BTW
I did notice the vocals are a little ahead of time on the last chorus. I would move them back 1/64th.

Hey..
Took me several hours of getting this thing down in Garageband the way both James and I liked it, must have had a thousand ideas for the guitar parts.. Will have to look in to that last chorus thingy.. Thanks again for your kind comment and of course your commitment to this project..

Secrets (III) Collab with JDholliday
Great song, awesome vocs/harmonies! Very close to radio ready.My only nit would be on the solo break, the tone (and maybe the level) of the lead guitar doesn't stand out enough from tone of the guitar that's playing throughout the song, but that might be my cheap speakers.

Ultimately
there maybe a final release in which that part will be taken into consideration, thanks for your support on this one through all the versions

Thank you gaylen
I think this progress on this song is a testament to posting WIP for feedback what an impact people's suggestions had through the 2 that I posted to get to this. And Egbert was extremely receptive and adept at choosing which suggestions to incorporate and how.

Lovely song. Nice additions, Egbert. Vocals are sounding emotional and wistful. Back up vox is just right. :)

this one gets better and better
Wonderfully done! Great mix to my ears, on my bad speakers. Radio-ready, in the best way.

Fyi, on my laptop's built speakers, which may not even be true stereo, the guitar solo "fights" a little rhythmically with the backing tracks--maybe because of the lack of panning.

Just something to think about when you're being played on AM radio all over the country:)

for all of your kind comments you are very encouraging, and I want you to know that I really appreciate you, you were one of the first to welcome me to macjams and made me feel at home, and you were one of the first I listened to and I was like ooooh the bar is high here.
