You are so gifted in the way you nail the lyrics and message.

The music is certainly your style, smooth and easy!

You know how to write, arrange. Would love to hear more from you.

Your guitar work is excellent and well above par.

Loved it in this song for sure.

Thanks for this!

Great easy listening/lite jazz music. Your voice is perfect for your writing style, you have a great sound. The lyrics are excellent and they make a very good point.

    Although I grew up playing country music, and it is my best genre for guitar playing, I do not have a country voice. It's more suited to Smooth Jazz and Smooth R&B. When I am writing for myself, or for my wife, I try to work to that strength. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Thank you very much! I apologize for the tardy reply. I've had a minor stroke and have been very ill. Just saw this and I appreciate the very kind words! Thank you so much!

Very nice. VERY! There is only one vocal spot that could be improved.

It's up to you, do what you want to do
Be the hero or act the fool

The singing of the word DO falls flat. A few other words are sung a bit flat at the end of the phrase. Knitpicking.

    Hi!

    I know this extremely late. Please accept my apology. Our granddaughter has cancer and we've moved out of state to be close to the family, plus my wife had another stroke. I've been away from the site for quite some time.

    Thanks for listening and for the very nice review. I'm a decent but not exceptional singer. So, I am not at all offended by your observations. I could use Autotune, which I have, to get the pitc h perfect on those words, but I don't use it unless I'm WAY off. i can always here it when it's being used, so I try to not use it unless I feel it's really necessary.

    Glad you liked the song, anyway! Thanks for letting me know! best to you ...

Great playing. Not really a fan of band in a box, but we can clearly hear your talent when you play. Great note choices, very mature playing!

    Hi!

    BIAB works pretty good for me. But, we each have our preferences.
