Not the one who made you sad

Description
So, firstly, yes it's me. It's been just over three years since my last submission. A lot has changed in that time. I got divorced, I got seriously ill and was hours from death, I moved home and found a new love. During that time my music ended up taking a back seat.
Moving house afforded me the opportunity to build a dedicated studio. I now have a 3m x 2.5m dedicated building in my garden that is solely used for my music. What you hear today is the fruits of my first few sessions seriously working in the studio. I've spent nearly a year in and out of there but it's taken this long for inspiration to finally arrive.
Technically, this aint no "Mac"jam as it's recorded on a Zoom R24 recorder with no Macs involved. I will, at some point, take the stems into Logic and "produce" it but that's for another time. Right now I'm making the most of having some inspiration.
Finally, the arms here are provided by a Digitech Trio Plus pedal. The pedal can also provide a bass line, which I liked so much I emulated here, though I may have recorded it a bit hot.
Both guitars were recorded through their amps, mic'ed and live.
My Epiphone Dot Studio, cleaned and restrung, came out of hiding for the first time in about 5 years here and I think it sounds amazing. In the background you'll here my Vintage V300 parlour guitar.
A version of this song, with guide vocals, was posted over on Soundcloud yesterday - I'm happier with the vocals on this version here which is why it's going up on Macjams today.
I'm happy to be back, happy to be alive and happy to be back amongst you wonderful creative and kind people.
Look after yourselves, because you're all you've got.

Good song with a catchy chorus.

The bass sound is a little too strong for my taste. Kind of unfocused. The low hum that's running through your track (just listen to the beginning and end) doesn't help, I'm sure.

Welcome...
from someone else returning after a long hiatus. Lived in San Antonio Tx most of my young life so I have a taste for country/western music, especially the merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings style.

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
