I like your voice. I think it would sound better with all the reverb off the guitar and adding some kinda percussion - tambourine?

Brisk little number. It all sounds good but maybe a little EQ or reverb on the vocals to give it some depth? Some tambourine would be a nice touch.

Good one.

Thanks for the listen. I spent a week trying to find a percussion that sounded good (including tambourine) but in the end it seemed to sound best with out it. I tried to emphasize the bass line than.

I don't know if I said this before but why don't you try and record the guitar with the built in mics, or even better, combine the built in mics with the dynamic mic. Voice and harmonica sound great.

I'm hearing a kinda early Dylan groove in this. Nice.

Peace Love and folk rock! I have a soft spot for this style since I am 58 now! Cool jam. Pretty driving singing and lyrics!

I like that you used a harmonica. Why didn't you bring it back? (Like as in a little solo, or something? And maybe at the end again as well?).

Thanks for listening. That's a good idea. I had a little solo in the beginning which I took out and put the harp in, so I didn't think about using it again.

When I retired I intended to learn the harmonica. I never did and now listening to how it's used here I'm thinking that maybe I should try again.

Yeah, bit of a Dylan vibe, lots of energy and passion. Always good to hear :)

That's a happy sounding song. Very good sound on the harmonica.

Thanks Jim & Dick for the listens. I do enjoy the harp, and stick it into songs whenever I can.

Perhaps it's the picture on the right, but I had to think about George Harrison with this one. Instantly recognizably your style.

Lots of energy and a catchy melody with a bob-along rhythm. Nice.
