-- If remembering correctly, started as a cell phone recording, first-pass, one-take; then revised 2019; and today 11 August 2020 with Cody from Oklahoma (dzd) on Slide Guitar.

Hahhh! - five years later! O M G! Aye!? Still futzing with a cell phone recording. Whoddathough?!

-- Good stuff, good stuff... ...

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Good stuff indeed! Love the feel of this. Worth the futz, don't know why you're complaining! (perhaps I'm just a sucker for the blues, but this has a lovely feel. And an elegant bass on the other side of that slide guitar.

A cool song to play while on a road trip - I can see the small towns passing by with the song in the background. Nice!!

Man! I gotta comment on this too, I was in no way happy with that trash I sent you hah! snuck this one in on me've worked some real magic here! You know what you did ahahaha.......I think you may have just a touch more futzing to do when I get back home!

Just to clarify for anyone else reading.....I had a massively bad patch cable, sent him just a mono track of those little slide bits, I for once tried o do just a "clean" cab mic out track, not even any gain Wink (don't even think he's used them in whole, snipped/edited/cleaned them up) in a super jiffy Biggrin

Really great work!

Yup has an oldy worldly feel, I could see this with a road trip video. Still softer vocals and that guitar is very clean nice one Mr Stilldoes.

Really enjoyed this--kind of a 70s vibe, which I always love anyway. I get told my songs sound "70s era" and I always take it as high praise.

Great job on this, guys!

Phone recordings are funny things; they need the right treatment in a production to make them sit properly in the mix, otherwise it just sounds like a mess. This does NOT sound like a mess. Here, you just get a really interesting sonic overlay to the music that enhances rather than hinders the song. It's a timely song, too - although I think that the storm is already here, and has been for some time...

Nice, gives me a feel of a person singing this outside a church right before a big event.
