That's a good rocker with some interesting chord patterns to boot. I really like the chord changes, and the harmony vocals added a lot of texture.

Well done. Funny how that works... or not! The "Muse" is always in control. Enjoyed my listen... and best of luck with the album.

Hi Iggy, I wondered where you got to.

Overall this is a keeper. It's got attitude. Just one small sugg. Maybe the chorus needs to start with a different chord to make it jump forward more.
Might be worth a try.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

There's a lot to like here.

Strong vocals, guitar and a spot on mix all make it an enjoyable listen!

Kudos!

Hi Mike, thanks for the listen and comments. The chords arenít that unusual mostly just Am-Em_D.

Yes Dave the muse is always in control. Thanks man!

Vic, thank you, Sir. Iíll give that chord change a try. I appreciate the suggestion.

Janice and Bud Wow! Thanks. I did everything in three days in my man cave/studio/basement. Once I got into the ďzoneĒ I couldnít stop.

Hello Iggy,


Very entertaining.
14 months....I can relate....I have a few possible lyrics but can't get focused enough to put them to music yet.
Have a good day.

Iggy,

So glad to see you around, you're one of my favorite "cogs" in the wheel around here! Cool song, cool lyrics, classic pop-rock IMO--love it!

Thanks Calvin. Iím finding that now I'm only writing songs when my moods are very high or very low.

Sir Eddie, I guess itís better to be a cog in the wheel than a nail in the tire, eeh? Always appreciate your comments and feedback. Thanks.

Ha, slacking off Ricki! Maybe in songwriting but I play in three different bands which keep me busy. Besides I usually write songs when my emotions have been overly stimulated. At my age I can't be overly stimulated for long! Thanks for the comments.

Thanks Dee.I appreciate the listen and the comments.

Hi Iggy
The first thing that hit me was a REM feel to this.
Not a bad thing of course.
Good vocal and all round good production
Yes the thumbs up here
Regards
Travis

I thought the way you sung "You You You" was such a strong hook it should be the chorus with the lift:
"I was so afraid of" and lead into the Yous-ful part. smile
