Description
Last year I played on a festival in my home town. The motto was "The Night" and especially for that night I wrote this tune.
It`s one track, third take, except the solo which is a bit too laid back in my ears
but why am I telling... ? :o)

Lyrics
Every day is
Like the last
Future is
Like the past

Tell us the truth
No more abuse

Sky is bright
Night is clear
Stop the fight
Freedom`s near

All of that lies
Inside your eyes


When you`re in the deep
Go slow
Take a trip
Into the night

Dig this
Especially where it takes off. It sounded too country at the beginning then it turned into a cool jazzy thing. You should give the listener a glimpse of what he's going to hear on this track. It may be bit misleading.

By the way, loved the tune much. DL'ed

Country?
Never thought that someone would say it sounds like country...
But it is what it is, the intro is an important part of this song.
Thx for listening and for the honest words!

wow ingo
this is wonderful. great rhythm guitar and i thought the solo was great. my only suggestion is that i could have stood to have your gorgeous vocals a little louder. this is classic songwriting and a great performance. very well done!

yes Shay, you`re right
The second take was a bit better balanced, but I`ve made some inexcusable mistakes so I decided to take the third one.
You can`t always get what you want... :o)

Like this style ..
... makes me think of "wonderful night for a moondance". Fabulous performance .. you just played and sang this? One track, 3rd take .. then added the solo? Wow ..
that's what I call a performance. Kudos Ingo.

Live feel
Yes, more and more I try to sound like it`s just an unplugged gig in my living room.
The guitar part is pretty easy to play and so the vocals sound more natural than in some difficult fingerstyle song.

Playing the solo was fun except the halftone shifting which is a killer when you don`t know where you are...

This is
such an enjoyable listen. Yes, wonderful singing. Could be a little louder, maybe. Such a bluesy jazzy take with an ending to die for. Thanks.

You`re so kind
But please don`t die!
You`re right, vocals could be a little louder, it`s the curse of one-track-recording with just one microphone.
Next time vocals will be too loud... :o)

Thx Scott

it`s a great honour to hear such positive words from a very talented songwriter.
When I joined MJ I was a bit disappointed because of the apparent low quality level of songs that I`ve listened to.
But I realized at the latest I was wrong when I listened to your songs.
If you ever want to collab I would be glad to work with you.

That solo seems
a bit laid back Ingo :)

Lovely tune and some tasty playing. The intro sounded a lot like ................. someone I can't place :( I enjoyed the intro as much as the upbeat section. Very cool song, good performance and nicely recorded.

From time to time I want to record just one track, one mic. I think that third take was OK but I miss some brilliance. (Must be very unbrilliant for your ears...) :o)

Very nice!
Nice tone on that guitar. Very engaging when the jazz rhythm kicks in.

Wish your fine vox was a tad forward in the mix though. No need to hide!

Back in the day there was a lot of music like this about. Your tune has filled me with nostalgia.

Good job Ingo.

Be well friend!

Nice tune. reminds me of that Latino artist who did "Chico and the Man" Song from the seventies. very nice. The vocals could probably brought out a little more but they sound more live the way they are so its hear nor there. Dig it.

Great song
Great delivery. Sounds like it could use an eq adjustment, it sounded a touch muddy although with that said, the lead guitar sounded great. I still loved it none the less, you have a new fan now.
Peace

You`re right, sounds a bit muddy especially on bad speakers.
I`ve used a sample delay to give it a little more density.
The result is that the brilliance is gone away, just a bit.
You`re a new fan? Make yourself at home... :o)

Love how you re-play the entire piece in a different way the second time through... very soft-60s-jazz-ish, takes me back to my childhood :-) Enjoyed the lyrics, well-played syncopated guitarwork, and your great voice. Good work, Ingo!
