Hi Stevie,

IMO the other mix sounded better overall. The drums and vocal are REALLY bright in this one. Still a good story and tune, but the mix didn't improve IMO... Sorry,

Peace,

Ian

What are you listening through Ian? The mix is the same but I added a new bass part with my Hofner and a new vocal. Everything else is exactly the same. I've played it through my monitors, headphones, and two car stereos and it sounds fine on this end. Thanks for the feedback though.

Stevie, Just got a listen to this one. I like the lyrics and the melody. I can hear it with a little more swing to it. Maybe syncopated a little, if that's the word for it. But it's a nice piece of inspirational writing.


Write from your heart, not what you think others want to hear.

Thanks for the second listen Scott. I love the Hofner. It's extremely easy to play compared to other basses and on Beatles type bass lines it has a distinct, clear and unique sound. I've been playing it in churches and someone, especially the soundmen always compliments the sound I get out of it. I can tell the Beatles fans in the audience too cause they stare at it the whole time, lol.

I've listened again and really loving it, I like this verse the most.....


I saw a weary old man
Fishing with his fears
A savior with a promise
Lit his darkened pier
And then I watched him follow
Those footprints in the sand
And on the lips of a sinner

Very nice Stevie.

That bass does sound great. I just saw a used Hofner in a store the other day. I didn't see this one the first time around. Really nice lyrics, the chorus lyrics are cool, but I'm not sure I get their true meaning, as they seem paradoxical--which I'm sure you intended. Enlighten me. Are you associating "dreams" with faith?

I would like to hear you pull or fade the volume down slightly on the last "dre-ea-eam," as if you were backing off the mic a bit.

Great song Stevie!

steady-eddie.
