Dang, V, that's some production. I'm surprised you still have it in you to make such an extensive video like that. The music and lyrics were well crafted. The monologue part fit right in with that genre. I don't know all the particulars of the song creation but I can say that whatever instruments you played or whatever sounds you generated from tools all sound good to me. Vocals were well mixed. It said copyright 2018. Did you just record this now or has this one been on the back burner for a while?

Thanks, Sean. The year was an error (Thanks for pointing it out). The project was just completed this past weekend.

John,
Nice production on the song and vid. Your passion for the material comes through. The spoken word section fits in well. That’s a different sort of thing for you. Nice touch. Glenn

As the other guys have said, top notch and very impressive production on this John. Really well put together.

You seem to be working at a different level these days. It's a pity so few people are here now (I've been away from music for a few weeks and haven't managed to get here)

Cheers

Dick

Excellent video and song.

Just yesterday I read the announcement, http://www.sof.news/casualties/james-sartor/ that Sergeant Major James Sartor was killed in action (KIA). He was on his 7th deployment!

America asks more and more from the few willing and able to serve. The LEAST we can do is not forget their sacrifices.

No John, we haven't forgotten anything. We simply have different opinions and different ways of expressing ourselves, much like the music we share here on the Zoom. That being said, your music, as always is stellar. Ditto on the production quality!
