Hey Tracy
Thanks for your time and helpful comments, once again.

I redid the percussion after the first round of comments and for the life of me I can't find any timing issues, with them. It may just be the wrong choice of percussion or maybe where they sit in the mix...Hell I don't know.

I'll try to address it on the next round of rewrites or if I ever get a band together to record it.

Thanks again.

Listening again this morning and I did hear something a little off. Well how bout that. smile

I accidentally listened to the first song "Walk With Me" then realized it wasn't "Blue Sky"

After hearing Blue Sky I just let your sings play as they were very warm and welcoming. Reading your bio it seems top me you have accomplished what you set out to do. Not only is very honest and sincere but your very "musical" as well. So many pleasant going on in your songs starting with the feel...

With all that is there and being able to hear & see into your music I wouldn't even comment on little production or performance things that are so irrelevant to the bigger picture your painting. Besides I know what it's like to sit there alone trying to make an entire song come to life and trying to not let your equipment ruin the whole vibe smile or worse yet make you pout it away.

Nice stuff man really.... You remind me of someone who would have someone else doing one of your songs. Then I find out you have a version and I go "You know I kinda like Nelson's original version a bit better, it's just more sincere and heartfelt"
Regardless of how good Al Jarreau sang it smile

All the best
Mike


Thanks!
Peace Mike

Thanks Tammy
Always a plus to get your approval on a piece.


Tracy,

I hear that all the time, I grateful it's not the other way around.
Nelson, I don't know what it is about your music but I just don't like it. grin
I'll try to take care of those pesky percussion, on the next round.

Thanks for talking the time to listen and comment.

I was the king of punting. If it didn't come out right immediately...punt. Witch was all the time. But now It's just as easy to save it away for another day.

I have so much to learn about production and I'm new to performing, as well. I'm using the same guitar, keyboard and recorder I started with.

It really means a lot when a pro like yourself has such kind words and recognizes the hard work.
I find it really rewarding when the soul of a song shines through despite my limited technical abilities.

So thanks again

Hey Nelson

I took a listen to this song and to your song "Open Up".

I concluded you have a powerful and expressive voice - it can be strong and sensitive. Your lyrics and music complement that voice.

Thanks for posting so I could hear these.

Can't believe I missed this tune. This was really wonderfully written, I especially enjoyed the lyrics. How often, indeed, does love "knock on the door"?

I think you you listened to "Open Up" instead of "Blue Sky".
I'm grateful you took the time to listen and enjoyed it never the less. I afraid love doesn't knock too often so have my ear glued to the door. smile

Doug
Thanks for your time. Glad you enjoyed it.
I'm new to all of this so I'm still trying whip these vocal chords into shape. My abilities are still rather limited so I try to keep it simple and straight from the heart... no frills.

Thanks John
Shiny side up... indeed.

Nelson what a great song. Someone with a lesser voice would have spoilt it, but you have a wonderful voice that is full of feeling.

I wonder if you ever do collaborations.

Again beutiful song.

Hi Nelson,

This is a wonderful song….I really like the lyric....and the ideas you combine…..some great lines there. And the mix of instruments is a great compliment to it as the story is told…very intricate and interesting….

I like the harmonies too!

Well done!

Kristi
