Its been a very long time .... so here's a Blues / Country rock acoustic stomper. I wrote this for a fabulous female blues singer I'm doing a radio appearance with on Sunday .. This is my demo of the song, written on Tuesday, recorded the following day. I'm having thoughts about extending this to a full on rock version .. but there again where on earth would I find the time ? I would love your feedback on the song, please be as honest as you care to be. Thanks for listening Dave.

I dig it. Classic sound for sure. I'm not comfortable critiquing anyone's art but my 2 cents would be to cut out some of those 'yeah's during the chorus. Great to hear that you're at it again and on the radio no less. Look at that, you even got Ignoramus to comment! Break a leg, Dave.

I really can't imagine another person doing this song with any more soul, spirit and intensity than you are here. The guitar work is outta this world. The recording in and of itself sounds great. A good balance going on. The song has ended and the melody is stuck in my head. That's the sign of a sure winner. Best of luck on the radio interview. I did one way back in the early 90's and it was hecka fun.

If you ever want to electrify this, I would dig doing some bass and lead guitar work for you.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments.

@Ignoramus .. Thanks Jay, hope you're still giving the guitars a good workout.

@jkane .. John, you're right, too many yeahs ... I quickly recorded and mixed this to give the demo to Hannah (the singer)without really listening .. it's irritating!

@Neumuzik .. Thanks nice to see another old icomper still here.

KC, Art, Kw8 .. thanks, I appreciate your comments.

@Matt Granz .. thanks, Hannah's a great singer though .. I'll get a version recorded and stick it on icomps .. and thanks for the offer, you never know...

You can sing man but you sound like your reading the lyrics. When you truly memorize this song your extremely soulful vocals will snap and magic will appear. You stated that you are pressed for time.. and because of that I feel it in your performance. Great song and concept but before you extend it you must first make it yours. As of now it is in need of feeling.

Sincerely, TvRicky

Dave, you are amazing! I love this as an acoustic piece.. It's easy to digest the excellent lyrics! I'd love to hear a recording of Hannah.. right now....I can't imagine anyone else performing this other than you!


Truly enjoyed!

Very, very nice!

I agree with TvRicky on the delivery ad with John on holding back on a few of the yeahs...

I can definitely see this going electric, although I'd hate to see that beautifully short and crisp acoustic solo disappear and become something overly long "Free Bird" type... You know, your skills on guitar tend to be overlooked (and you really kill on that thing!) because of your incredible voice, but I love the way they work together on this one a lot.

And speaking of said song, this is definitely a classic Southern Rock tune a lá Lynyrd Skynyrd and the ever incredible Allman Brothers Band, but I like how concise you made it. There is something to be said of having a great song clock in at under 4 mins these days! smiley

But the best part of all is the fact that it's all you and voice is, as always incredible!!!

I want that solo disc man! smiley

Awesome. I can hear the heavy guitar coming in if you wanted to rock this out, but it's uber fine as-is. Very cool track. Could hear Bon Jovi picking this up.

@RedthruNthru .. thanks, that's very sweet of you to say so. It's an unusual position to write for someone else, though Hannah's voice is quite similar to mine. Once we have Sunday out of the way I will ask her over to record a vocal and introduce you all to her smiley

@JD .. So good to see you're here again too. Once I'd finished it, I was surprised it was only 2m43s long, I considered making it longer, but I felt it was done, nothing much more to say without it being convoluted and a little (more) contrived. The good news is I'm definitely getting back into the music (yah!)

Thank you all for stopping by, listening and commenting, VERY much appreciated.

Dave

Luv it, altho I found it familiar to something I've heard before but cannot identify, for me juicing it up would not be a bad thing, I dig power guitar work, but as is it is also fabulous, vocal is soo good...hope you will not wait a long time again before uploading more tunes.. smiley

@ShadowofNine .. thanks very much, as a bit of a blues stomper it's probably pretty close to anything from the Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Co back catalogue, though with a touch of country thrown in for good measure. I hope I can find the time to get some more tunes finished off .. lack of time and the lure of my bed keep me away from my studio at the moment smiley

@MartinDunn .. You're right ! ... I've been trying to place that myself, good spot. As I'm playing this with a capo at the 2nd fret I didn't spot it was those chords on the turn around, oh bugger ! Thanks for the comment. Dave

I think you have the perfect rock voice and your playing is amazing. It's great to hear something new from you. This song reminds me of a Whitesnake song, I just can't figure out which right now. The picture is also very Whitesnake. I think this is great though.

@pete .. Thanks man

@pharmakeus and @Yankman30 .. Thanks guys, Zep and Whitesnake have always been a big part of my musical heritage, I think it really shines through on this one though.
