Description
Whoops - OK *this* is the final mix. Really :-)

2 Guitars rather than 1 is the only difference, I believe. Sounds a bit less sparse.

I've left the other one up just for completeness and/or comparison.

Lyrics
The Calm before the Storm
My sleeping bag is warm
I'm trying to concentrate
It's a Wedding Day - not a Wake

No cause for great Alarm
Now - keep yourself from harm
I know you won't be alone
In your shiny-bright brand-new home

It's just my heart taking
It's just the drink talking
It's just my heart talking

Great happiness is in store
Two children maybe more
Your cup it will overfill
You'll love it I know you will

But things can't be the same
The times they have just a-changed
Time for a different plan
Now you're a married man

It's just my heart taking
It's just the drink talking
It's just my heart talking

Really LOVE it
The fiddle sounds at the start grabbed my attention right away. It's lovely. You have a clear, wonderful voice too. Love it. Thanks.

On the Fiddle..........
Hi - this is a song from a collection of tunes we did which featured Chaz's fiddle playing skills - once we get around to actually mastering the tracks........we'll have ourself an album!

Anyhow, very glad you like it.

Great lyrics
The lyrics of self-talk matched the mood of your music.. the violins and acoustic- I liked that combo. I am sure many can relate to this. Your singing, natural.. Very impressive

No Ovation.......
I think one's a K.Yari - in fact this one:

The other is a custom job handmade by Chaz's excellently talented brother out of Martin Parts.

Understated
Hi John. Like the understated style and your vocals. The violins add a nice mournful touch to the song. Like this. Regards, Peter.

Fiddle Envy
Wish there was a GB track that was a bit like that fiddle! Can't seem to find a good solo violin sound at all.

Just a complete sucker for fiddle with guitar in this sort of idiom. The combination reminds me of those great 'Cold Mountain' tunes. (Did you ever see the film?)

Ah well, something to hold out for!


Enjoyed it. Cheers.

GB Sounds.......
Yes - *very* difficult to come up with a good synthetic fiddle sound - unless you spend the very big bucks.

Calm Before the Storm
Great song and great performances all around. Good recording. It felt like the violinist was sitting on my computer keyboard.

Reflective lyrics. The close-up vocal and rich guitar tones drag the listener in. Much enjoyed.
