I have posted the occasional instrumental here before. Now I finally have my first actual song to bring along for anyone willing to listen and critique.

Goodness man, what the hell have you been waiting for!?!

That was superb! I absolutely love that song!

That is a hit. Now, if it's about a dog it may be a niche market hit but a hit just the same.

So laid back. Great guitar work (electric and acoustic) and outstanding drums. I'll have to listen again to pick up all the other wonderful instrumentation but needless to say it was all mixed well. Great lyrics and vocals.

A+ - top shelf!

:bow:

p.s. Ah, yes, the bass. Nice work. :rock:

The vocal delivery on that chorus is stunning. Outstanding work.

Thank you so much for the listen and your kind words Mr The Cracks! I'm glad you liked it.

It is a little bit about (walking) my dog but it's mostly about my true love ;)

I got some feedback elsewhere that the drums were a bit too busy, so I might end up refreshing SoundCloud to point to an updated version.

I'm 100% open to criticism so if anyone else listens and has a different take on it do let me know.

Very nice song. Drums are fine for me.

I miss my dog :(

Cheers

Lovely acoustic sound, would of liked some strumming at some point to fill it out but maybe that's just personal preference.

Vocals sound fine and fit style . Mixed nice and clear.

Good song overall!

Neat song. Interesting to hear the differences between the first song posting and the second song posting. Completely different sound and vibe between the two even though it seems you're using the same audio tracks.

I listened to some of the other tracks you've posted through the years. You get some really good sounding guitar tracks.

Hey thanks a lot Jim. Did you have a preference? The more natural drums center panned mix (v2) or the busier drums hard panned mix (v1)?

The second version sounds a little more mellow. I'm listening through laptop speakers so it's hard to distinguish what is different between the two mixes. All I can tell is the mixes are different and I prefer the newer (V2) mix.
