Description
Its a song that I started in 2007. I just sang it better this time. Redid everything but the idea. Still some timing problems. But I think I have a drummer coming over soon!!! Then Ill have a finished product. Still writing lyrics. I also had a good friend from my 79-85 era play lead guitar. His Name is Steve Moulton. He played an old Gibson Melody Maker on this.
Sweet guitar. I promise to fix the timing problem with a real drummer.. Not me taping out on a computer keyboard...

You sounded like a drunk, young Bob Dylan on the first lines, which was kind of funny when you sang "No more protesting" the first time. The lyrics were good and I enjoyed them but they sort of sound awkward due to the number of syllables on occasion. Drums weren't that bad despite what you though about them. Guitars are all A+ and the production quality was top notch. I don't really like the synth thing in the background, but I just hate the sound of those in general.

All in all good stuff.

Please don't disrespect musichead with the drunk Bob Dylan comment...I mean Dylan singing normally is painstaking enough. I listen to his music a lot and love his songwriting but man his vox are natrocious but have soul. Anyways, now that I' off my soapbox, great song. I really enjoyed it. Great guitar, lyrics, etc. Can't wait to hear the final version. A very nicely done solo and the 12 string sounds angelic.

may have been
I may have had a few beers while singing this. This is what happens when I try and hold out notes. I sound drunk. But Im getting better. The drums are well feeble at best. Steve Moulton did a great job on the solo. We will be hearing more from him. I think the vocals are take # 2 or 3. I could have done a 5 or 6. Thanks for the listen!!!

Separation of truth from falsehood
Wow. Wonderful clarity of stereo sound. Voice perfectly situated. You sing it well. As listenable as the real Neil Young and Bob Dylan.
musichead said 3624 days ago (January 9th, 2009)

This means a lot coming from a pro like you. I feel my singing is getting a bit better. Im just starting to enjoy the production end of things. thanks for the stop over and listen!

amazin. nice everything..from the writing, playing, singing all the way thru production. the timing isn't a big deal, it just makes it sound like a good band playing a live gig at a small venue. great stuff.

Laid back
This has a laid back feel which i think makes the song work.
The timing issues you mention probably lend themselves to the overall laid back feel so in a way it works like that. Tightening it all up may lose some of the songs coolness? I dunno. I'd like to compare the 2 versions though.
Good stuff I reckon!!
musichead said 3624 days ago (January 10th, 2009)
but still
But the timing sounds like an amateur live band. Im not a very good drummer..yet...Ill work on it. I gave a local drummer a demo cut of this song. And 3 other songs as well So If the drummer is up for it, I should have a better drum track. Thanks for the nice review!!!

"the timing isn't a big deal, it just makes it sound like a good band playing a live gig at a small venue. great stuff."

I totally agree with that. this is some real laid-back stuff, man. I like it better than bob dylan and niel young, actually. but that's a matter of personal taste. I can hear the influence, but I like your style way more.

timing
Id still like to have a live drummer over and try it. And after listening to it a few times more. Im going to clean up the vocals a bit. Put more thought behind it. Thanks for taking time to comment and for the listen!

Kind of Harrison-ish, too. Look forward for a more polished version. Guitar solo sounds fantastic.

Great
tribute song and very dramatic sounding chords, backing. Love the 'Story-telling' style you've given this........ and to reiterate, the backing really does sound good, nice arrangement, all the best M

Like the vocals. Has kind of a live feel right now. A very good song, so it should be fun trying out different drums and things. Solo guitar is strong, keep that guys number!

Thanks

I totally agree with the floyd aspect of this one. Even the solo to some degree has an early floyd vibe.

Great song Steve
I share your affection for Neil - just said as much in the Done B4 post. Good set of lyrics - well sung and well played. Your buddy played some nice lead too.
