My last post (the Butcher) actually took me about 5 years from first playing the tune to finally recording it. Hardly prolific :lol: So last night at 8pm GMT I decided to write a song from scratch and post it here finished in less than 24 hours. I failed by 2 & 1/2 hours but I am happy to say this IS a song I am proud of and the lyrics are good and solid. There are things I would, and will, change but given the time scale I can live these blemishes for the time being.

The song is a kind of modern folk rock tune, not intentional, that is the way it turned out. The lyric is sad and I found it hard to sing it in such a way that would do it justice but I tried. I did actually have the song finished in time but the wife didn't like my vocals and suggested I redo them in a higher register - which I have now done. I am no singer but I feel I just about held the tune.

I hope you like it ... But get your tissues out :)

Another great song. Very original and the lyrics are cool. You have a cool voice, very confident. Is the acoustic sound the VG8 cos if it is i'm gonna get one. I really do think this is a cracking song. You should seriously think about gigging these songs.

BLoody hell! Thanks Chaps!

Phil - yeah it's all the VG-88. And I am done with gigging mate, I did 6 years doing originals and 7 years doing covers. I am a free man now :) - thanks for the vote of confidence though! :thumb:

Goport, the whole thing is fantastic. I don't recommend listening to spouses bro. If I listened to mine, you would never have heard any postings from me on this forum :lol:

I like the whole production, the singing is great in my honest opinion. It's very tempting to keep fucking with the mix but as it stands right now, listening through a good set of headphones, it sounds just great. :thumb:

Well done, you should be proud.

Thank you Sting that means a lot man! I took your advice and had a play with ozone 3. very good for the vox and made the acoustic patch on the vg-88 really stand out. :thumb:
