    Sorry ZR, forgot to comment on that.
    I actually left it that way intentionally.
    I wanted the piano to contrast the muddy intro sound.
    To come in a bit piercing, dry and even a little shrill; like a realization. Might have overdone what I had in mind, but that was the concept anyway :D

    Ah, then, mission accomplished! ;)

    And I do like the song quite a bit - nicely crafted.

    BTW, can't download it again, did you move the file?

    Thanks again ZR - yes, it is all me from the lyrics and music to the sequencing and performance.
    Let me know what you think of the (kinda)mastered version - I've taken it right up to the breaking point in the master, so a weaker sound system might not be able to handle it :rolleyes:

    BTW - let me take this opportunity to re-stress the fact that I am NOT a vocalist.
    What I want is in my head, but that 'goose being strangled' sound that comes out of my mouth is as close as I can get to it ;)

    I think it sounds great. Definitely put it in there. Maybe make it a bit shorter if you are planning to sell the CD. And by the way, you're not a bad singer at all!!

    :: scuffs shoe on the ground and blushes ::
    Shucks - thanks guys :D

    King - yeah that's me... I've just never liked the sound of my own voice. Thanks :thumbsup:

    Besty - Yeah, I know... Before it gets to the "real" studio, I'll probably find a way to trim some time off it... (Almost) 6 minutes is a bit of a stretch on the modern attention span I agree.

    BTW artisan include it. Do Mods get a copy? :D I'll be happy to pay for shipping. Don't shorten it too much 4.5-5 mins is the best length for a song in my opinion, too short would have me begging for more, too long and I'll get tired of it.

    Actually - the 2nd CD's production has been called off and is on indefinate hold (because of band 'business'). But when it's finished, I could probably let a few 'promotional copies' fly :D

    I've got another piece posted online. A cover version of Mustang Sally (NOT in the style of Wilson Pickett). If anyone's interested in hearing it, drop a PM or email and I'll send the link.

    Damn good, actually. Gets better every time. Sounds a hell of a lot better on my home system :).

    And your concerns about your vocal talent are unwarranted - most of the stuff I hear on the radio lately doesn't even compare... slurring, garbled, junky lyrics. Sounds fine to me. :)

    Length: Personally, I prefer a good 5-6 minute number to a 3 minute one - the 3 minute ones, the good ones especially, are over too quickly to completely enjoy, IMO. Unless you're after radio play time (who gets that anyway?), stick to the artistic length. Anything else would be chopped.

    I'll keep an eye for "flying promos", but it sounds like it'll be a good'n. Y'all self-publishing?

    Mostly - gig promos and plays/plugs via affiliate performances and stuff.
    Nothing "big time" yet :rolleyes:

    Excelent

    I have just downloaded this to my jukebox. Im not a musician like most of you guy's, im just a humble singer (middle of the road at that ) But ive listened to your track and I really think it's excelent. You would be crazy not to use it on your CD. (But that's just my oppinion )

    Best of luck.

    artisan the song is stuck in my head it proably won't come out for a few weeks or even longer since this is only a demo and not the final.

    Yup, another positive review from my wife, sounds like a winner Art :). I'd gladly pay for a promo copy. :D
