Description : I messed around with musiclover38's track I'm OK version2 and added some vocals, plus sax and harmonica by Slapjohnson. Here's the original https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/137451

Hopefully I've fixed the mix on the Harmonica!!

    Awsome!

    I'd make a new version just for you so that the sax and your singing could take first place. As they should!

    I made this song for you to sing it. I just didn't know it! heh heh...

    So, I've had a listen now to the original. I clearly didn't read your track description correctly as I thought you were doing a cover.

    But no, you came up with the words (and sang them) so it's even better than I thought.

    Original is good but crying out for a good vocal - which it got.

    Good luck with the minor fixes. Small changes can make a real difference - especially if you do lots of them. Sometimes they make a difference in ways that people can't actually express.

    So, if you dropped a drumbeat in a bar and then fixed it, some people wouldn't be able to tell you what had been changed - it would just feel better to them.

    This is the way I try to think about all the heavily detailed micro-editing and mixing I do - all those little things will add up to something significant in the end.

    This is really extremely good, as everyone has already said. Vocals and guitar really stand out (very effortless soulful voice eg on "behind", "heavy load") but it's great right from the first drum fill and then guitar solo etc.

    3:13-3:16 guitar reminiscent of some of George Harrison's playing on his classic Something.

    There is indeed a bit of Willie Nelson in the vocals (wouldn't have though of it if I hadn't read it).

    I don't know the original but will listen later.

    Maybe I can help by suggesting some minor "fix" type of improvements.

    I can clearly hear an audio pop edit just before 1:24.

    Guitar solo starting 1:26 is great but too loud, especially, but not only, the first few notes. I'd just lower any offending note's volume - easy fix.

    2:08 the drums drop a beat (I should add it's a good and suitable drum track).

    3:32 I can hear what might well be you opening your mouth to sing so it's another sort of minor pop (maybe vocals recorded without pop shield).

    Final fadeout is not complete so track cuts off a little too abruptly (easy fix).

    These are really very minor quibbles but I believe if something's good, why not make it even better. These minor problems are really easy to fix though playing and singing like this certainly isn't.

    If you don't fix these things, there's a good choice no one else will ever even mention them as they don't get in the way of what is an excellent piece of music.

    Easily the best thing I've heard from you though the John Martyn cover was also very good.

    Hey SN, thanx for listening, nice to see you here among the amateur contingent!!

    You've made some really valid points - and may I say in a very nice way - and I will be fixing the issues you mentioned when next I remix this song.

    Thanx for your time.

    Willie country blue....you just have the voice for this stuff Kenny...like the minimal kind of mix (although the harmonica does clutter it a wee bit)...something I have been trying to do for a while...but I end up having fun with all the vst stuff & it doesn`t always stay as minimal as I intend...anyway....this is just fantastic listening ...a great song...top notch accompaniment....whats not to love....great job...Ed

    Yes this deserved a download. Great lyrics and your soulful world weary voice fits great with this . I like the sax with this, not convinced on the harmonica (maybe it needs to be backed down in the mix a bit as it overshadows the guitar)Overall Great job!

    Those words...I could've written those once upon a time, love em.

    Your voice makes this so epic, can't tell you how much I love this. I can imagine the end of a movie, guy on the motorcyle kissed woman one last time and is now riding in the wind.

    Very nice guitar solo. Musiclover38's got some REALLY good stuff over there at his shop.

    I think the only thing I don't like is that the harmonica seems to be causing a musical traffic jam when it comes in at the end.

    I am standing and applauding at the effective simplicity here, awesome job!

    You have got some vivid imagination girl!! That movie sounds like a cross between Casablanca and Ghostrider!! I have no choice about keeping it simple. “Simple is as simple does, my momma used to say”!!

    Musiclover38's music was the catalyst and inspiration for this and he is an awesome talent. I think I agree with you about the harmonica, a little overkill.

    Thank you again for taking the time to listen and giving such positive feedback, I really do appreciate it.

    Well, musiclover's is a splendid track!
    And you put the right add-on!

    Your voice is so harmonic (love that light reverb!) also the lyrics fits very well and add some poetry...

    Looking forward to hearing your next track, Kenny, it's always a pleasant surprise!

    Hello Darkreine, The vocals and music combined give a strong and sure feeling of what you're getting across here. Sounds great. This helped let me walk away from some past thoughts and I thank you for the share. This is real and something most of us can feel. Respects to you all. Enjoyed very much. Peace.

    Wow, love love LOVE this!
    The tone in your voice compliments the laid back feeling of the instrumental and the instrumentation perfectly to create a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Then Slap comes in with his legendary sax and harmonica skills ha.
    I felt at complete ease listening to this and could do so for a long time!

I've been wandering down this road
The miles have not been kind
Echoes burning in my head
Of the the things I left behind

Should have told the truth to you
Bout the things here in my heart
The truth is I'm no good for you
Time to make a brand new start

I've been thinking bout my past
As I tread this lonesome road
Feelings that I know won't last
Been such a heavy load

You deserve a better man
One who'll stay right by your side
It's something I can't give to you
So I'm leaving you behind

Description : Cosmic Eastern chillout atmospheric shuffle blues with loads of bluesy/Eastern electric guitar playing and warm sub bass (the same synth patch I've used in about 20 tracks). No drum loops and just two programmed acoustic kits - probably the simplest drum setup I've ever used. One day I hope to make a track containing only one drum kit. Also: a few female vocal samples (including a heavily timestretched one), one section of bass guitar, a few sample-based string instruments, a few notes of organ and two synth pad instruments. So, quite a minimal instrument lineup for me. It goes uptempo around 4:31 into a grooving, stomping bit of shuffle blues and I wonder if I should have brought this section back at the end for a triumphant finale. But I'm trying hard these days not to make things too long and this is already a decent length. Also contains some darker, Eastern sections but nothing too dark. Have a listen and leave me some interesting feedback - the more detail, the better.

It features everything being done by me, with improvised solos for each instrument. This was done using Fl Studio 12 and my Korg M50 keyboard. I plan on adding lyrics to it down the road and having everything much cleaner. Anyhow, enjoy!
