Not criticisms just maybe ways to make it better, but it's already great, love the harmonies, maybe no harmony in the first chorus, you know build it up? You could bring the muffled kick up a tad, it's great that its muffled, don't hide it.
Thanks! These are things that I will definitely have a look!

Yea...honestly...I don't see how you're not writing for Keith Urban or Miranda Lambert right now.

Thanks to everyone for listening..I know we all work REALLY HARD!!

Just finished a remix of Janis Joplin's track "Move Over". It seemed to take me an age to finish.

Great thread guys. I'm really digging some of those country tracks, and I'm not even a country guy.

Here's a track I did.
It started off as a valentines day challenge from my wife. I had to write and record her a song all in one day instead of buying her anything.
So I started writing at 8am, and by 9pm it was all written, tracked and mixed. Most of the instruments I did in one take, and the vocals are a couple of takes.
My wife is in the band with me too, but this song is pretty much a solo effort, although she added some bv's when she got home from work.

It still sounds a bit rough to me, and there's parts I'd like to redo (especially vocals), but she loved it, and a local indie radio station liked it enough to start playing it too.

Have a listen and let me know what ya think.

And here's a link to it on youtube. No fancy video yet but every view helps.


cheers,
Steve

Hey, Steve. I downloaded this a while back and put it on my I Pod. I listen to it a lot. Great work here!

Cool thanks.

I totally forgot that I'd posted it in the other thread. Thanks for your encouragement over there too. We're working on finishing up a few songs at the moment, so hopefully I'll have some more to post soon.

p.s I've also been watching your thread on the Apollo too. Hearing those clips has been great, after months of reading people talk about something they've never used or heard.

I like this vibe a lot. Has a vintage feel with a modern turn. Can you give us some more info on the gear you used? Nice work here.

It's a long time since I posted something from Ricardo Munoz, a friend of mine who is a singer/songwriter.

Although I did help Ricardo with the production of this track, most of the producing was done by Ricardo himself and Wikke Laman. I believe they both did a fantastic job.

I would love to know what you think of the song, and especially I'm interested to hear whether you believe Ricardo is a great singer or not. I have worked for him for over 7 years now, so it's difficult for me to be objective when it comes to his singing capabilities. I think he's great, but would love to know what other people think of him.

There Shes Standing
I think this is a nice song, especially the chorus part, it's catchy! The bridge also fits the song perfectly, nice job.

Want To See You Again
Another nice one! This song begins a little bit more interesting than the previous song I listened. I think the verses in this song interest me more than the chorus, while in "There Shes Standing" it's the other way around.

Lebe
I do understand a little bit of german, but it's not my preferred language in a song.. well, I guess that's my loss! Music sounded nice, but I had the feeling it was a very long intro. Somehow I was waiting for something to happen.. and it did not. Not a bad song though!

It sounds great, as always. I love your music, it has a truth to it and it sounds fresh. You are the real deal, Brother. A true artist among millions of posers. Some folks write music because they must, but most write music to be seen or recognized. I'll be in the first camp with you.

Here's one of my latest. A throw back tune. Written as a tribute to those of us who were lucky enough to experience and be influenced all the great music of the 80's.

Thanks so much, cowboy.

Had to play your new one three times for Miss Christine (my country co-star). That is one seriously good tune, man.

Between you and Sven The Viking (sventvkg) she thinks this is some sort of Nashville Throwdown.
