Very nice track Ray. Excellent lyrics that tell a good story. Your approach on this one is very good and it sets a nice mood.
Greetings and Cheers, Ray;
-I really love your song and especially the lyrics. 1st I listened to it over my good speakers and then I wanted to do injustice so I put on the headphones to listen to it even better. After listening to a 3 or 4 times I noticed that your vocals would not is the or there wasn't enough depth in the vocals as the word in your other recordings. Another was the vocals sounded little bit more flat if that's what you wanted then you completed it successfully.
The piano part is played sufficiently well and equally recorded exceptionally well. All in all I really enjoyed this song but after listening to your other recordings this 1 could use a little bit more of something that I'm not sure of because I'm not as professional as you are.
-If by chance if you get some time could you listen to my song "Best 2 Dawg Me" either on the front page or in my portfolio. I could use the help. What I've done it is I mastered 2 guitars and one league acoustic guitar with a fretless base and a keyboard effect. But I still can't make it clear enough and I thought maybe you could help me. Sincerely yours Mate.
Ray!! You are so gifted! Not only a brilliant lyricist but I love your piano technique too!! Is there an instrument you can't play I'm starting to wonder? Another wonderful song that I really love. A big fat 6 from me!!
Great lyrics and lovely 'folk' backing for the voice. This is well written both in words and music. I could listen to a lot of your work. Thank you for posting it. I really like your finger picking guitar style.
Great rhythmic music and blues chord sequence. This is nicely arranged. Good use of the various instruments and the voice is clear and good to listen to. I really enjoyed the instrumental section.Lovely work.
Cheers and greetings, Ray;
-I am overjoyed of being a fan of yours for your music is miraculously and majestically professional. I truly a recording studio and it used to be analog but now it is digital. I have a Presonus Studio 3 Professional digitally recorded set up with Martin six-string guitars and a Washburn 12 string. I have a monitor because then the such and to keyboards.
I would like to know what your studio comprises of because it is miraculously well mastered and recorded.
I'm glad to know another person from the land down under as I know two poets who live there. I live near Monterey California one of the largest and deepest Bays in the United States. My name is Alex Krysyna and I have a website (krysyna.wixsite.com/alexis). I also can be defined on YouTube under Alex Krysyna.
I need help in producing music that sounds much like yours and master recording and I can use all the tips that could help.
-Thank you so much for sharing and take care and have a good one especially with the ones you love and care for.
What an amazing song!! Many men would do well to take note of the words in this song. Your lyrics are never just a meaningless string of words, but very prophetic words of wisdom. In short another brilliant song in every aspect. You are a master at what you do, yet unlike many, despite your obvious talents, you are always very humble, which is one of the things I have always admired about you. A well deserved 6 from me my friend!
This is fantastic Ray. Instrumentals are superb as always, and again your lyrics are some of the best I have heard. Never ceases to amaze me how you tell such meaningful stories in your songs. You could cut CD's and they would sell like hot cakes I'm certain of it! I've started goind to Acoustic evenings since taking up The Native Americal Flute, harmonica, Irish whistle, and more recently the Ukulele, I just wished you lived closer, as your music would go down a storm...Aus is quite a long way from little old rural Brecon, but you never know our paths may cross some day :)As for slashing my wrists, I think I'll pass :)
ps. Loved this so much, I'm sharing it to my Facebook page for my friends to hear.
Excellent track Ray. This took me back to many of my visits to the southern areas of the U.S. Very traditional bluesy sound and well done. Get that stomp going. The performance is very good and for me was a step into Mississippi and the artists I know there. Your vocal is totally in the traditional style and sounds like you are a true southerner.
Great job man.
I'm just sitting here with a pre Christmas Bourbon, enjoying yet another corker of a song from you, both from an instrumental point of view, and lyrics and vocal too!! I just hope you weren't singing from experience Ray :)My philosophy has always been 'you can admire what's on display, as long as you don't fondle the goods' :)Really enjoyed this song very much!! Hope you and your family have a great Christmas Ray!!
