That's not bad. In fact, according to Ralph Murphy, the former President of BMI or ASCAP (I forget which one) and author of the great books and Youtube videos on songwriting (check them out), this style song is the future. It has flat-line lyrics and a catchy melodic chorus. I like it. I like the guitar background too.

What's wrong with Baltimore? Haha!

Nice song writing but pretty poor recorded sound. Did you record to mp3 and then got transcoding issues with creating the video? If you only have the H4n and no external mics I'd try putting it so that the internal stereo pair points to your mouth and the guitar (you'll need a microphone stand and an adaptor to camera tripod diameter thread), and then adjust the levels in your editor later.

I like your poetic lyricism. Plus the chorus is an interesting & catchy device. However it gets lost in the poor quality of the mix. If that's a guitar in the background I can hardly hear it as its so far down in the mix. You should give it another shot!

I like your approach. Story telling is an art and you've carried this off really well.

Clever lyrics and delivery. Somewhat bleak but the sound suits it.

I watched another video as well and you have an interesting style. Not exactly fun but involving.

Cheers

Dick
