better days ahead
very nice feel. guitar tone kind of reminds me of eric clapton. nice and progressive vibe. vocals fit great. effective soloing. middle 8 is a nice contrast but still very much part of the overall theme. effective final section with the extended soloing. catchy and memorable. cool stuff. enjoyed it. cheers

Thanks-I can't take credit for the lead guitar. I wrote and recorded the
whole thing and then Warren Seidberg played the lead guitar on it.

Very well done
I never could achieve the understated vocal think like you seem to do so easily here. Very cool. The Santana like guitar playing is a nice touch. Well done.

Nice!
Great vocals and guitar work. Very catchy chorus. I like the intensity of the ending climax too. (fade out is nice)

Great work. Glad I dropped by.

Tom,
This is a fuller production than your first number. The drums are better produced and yes of course the lead. Vocals are right on.

Big hand...
...I hope you have many more like this coming Tom! Well, my specialty area of music is more from Ozzie's era than Ricky's and so I would have no idea who to compare this song and performance with, so you have a fresh, unused brain here. One of the best original compositions I've heard in quite a while and you (and Warren) have everything to make it come alive! This the type of music that I wish I could find easily playing on the radio--outstanding job here (and you can take that to the bank)! Michael

Thanks MJK-My wife and I were just listening to your songs. We think you are the best. We loved the bowling song. Do you do any Dean Martin
songs? I have newer stuff coming, those songs go back to 2004. Tom

This song has a Pink Floyd meets the Beatles sound to me. I love the chorus and lead guitar work.

Good job

I like the sound of the guitar and the overall feel of the song, does sound a little bit like the Beatles. Your voice could be a tad louder in the mix.

Smooth vocal work. I love the electric lead tone. At first it seemed not to totally fit but in the chorus it fits perfect. Nicely done!

Very Beatles like
which is a very good thing, Tom. A very good mix, with the vocal sitting just right in the mix. Cool lyrics that make sense and make me want to hear more. Also some really good lead breaks especially in the ending playout.
Excellent bit of work here my friend.

Oh yeah, did I mention, Welcome to MacJams. Looking forward to getting to know you and your music.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Hello and welcome to MJ. Nice job on this - I can certainly hear the Beatles reference thought I definitely think your sound is more contemporary than that.

I think you fit in nicely here - thanks for sharing your music with us -

I dig the John Lennon vibe. Love the bridge, too. Nice balanced writing, the straight forward arrangement. There were places my ears wanted the guitar lead to be slightly louder, equal to the vocals, especially during the vamp. I think the distortion and reverb combined to create a misty cloud of mid-hi fuzz that maybe could be controlled with rolling off highs in the reverb and diminishing reverb for the over mix (especially that repeated note synth part). I dug the track. Thanks for sharing this. Never enough upbeat music.

A song well done Tom & Warren
- enjoyed the B Major chording starting around 1:40.
the lead guitar mimic of the vocal line = yes !
I lived in syracuse for quite a while
and played around the finger lakes, Albany, and
Utica etc. - You sound like John Lennon here.

Love it -
Beatlish I'd say. A really well put together song. I would say that your excellent [ Lennon like] vocals should be just a little more up front and that goes for the guitar fills as well but this is just my own opinion.

Lennon & McCartney meet Santana
Such a great track. There's that unhurried Beatle feel to it that buoys you along and a really catchy chorus. The recording quality is fab (no pun intended!). I'd second all the advice above about the vocal mix but your singing is superb. Right, off to listen to "We were rock n roll" now. Expecting good stuff!

As a young boy, I wanted to sing and play guitar. Seeing Ricky Nelson on TV is I think where it began. Begged my parents for a guitar and after winning out, I was on my way. Then came the biggest influence in my music and my life "The Beatles" I p... [see more]
