Hi Chris,
I listened to the remix. It's pretty good, but it doesn't feel like the same song anymore! In my opinion, the original has a lot more emotion. Maybe I'm a little biased because of my female genes. *smiles* And I'm a mother too.
But your song really touches me deep in my heart. Winston's remix might make you want to dance, but that's a big difference!
Best wishes, Manuela

Weston63 did a pretty cool remix of this which I love. All the best Chris

Hello Chris,
this is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard from you. Wonderful, this acoustic guitar and the very emotional singing! You can really feel that you dedicated this song to someone important to you.
Best wishes and have a nice weekend,
Zootman replied 6th Jul 2024 - 1 week ago
Hi Manuela, thanks for searching this one out. I still like this track. Very basic but somehow effective. From the heart, maybe that's it.

One of the best tracks I've heard since coming back into the loop family after a long layoff, massive fav mate, Peace much Respect mosaic....

that's a really nice comment, thanks a lot. And thanks for taking the time to listen to another track. I know I'm pretty amateur with this music thing, but it is so enjoyable to create and be creative. If I'm pleased with the result that's what matters most, but if someone else genuinely likes it too, all the better!! Cheers Zoot.

Awesome Zootman, great buttery vocal and nice chilled guitar playing. Nice mix on this one as well, the guitar almost sounds subtle against the vocal, good job for not over cooking the levels, sounds great ! :)
Zootman replied 6th Apr 2023 - 1 year ago
Thanks for the nice comment! I probably fluked the balance between vox and guitar given I had the two mics (1 condenser and 1 dynamic) positioned to try and capture both at once. Took a bit of compression to get on top of some of the peaks but yeah, the problem with the earlier version was a bit of clipping. I'm still very much learning the production stuff.
JohnSmokey 5th Apr 2023 16:05 - 1 year ago

Thanks Mr BB. I added the delay to the mix just recently, wasn't sure it was a good move. I wanted it subtle so hopefully it sounds that way. cheers Chris

Hi Zootman .
I dont remember the older one age lol.
But it sounds great.
Nice guitar playing and voice
Very peacefull
Zootman replied 4th Apr 2023 - 1 year ago
Thanks Rita, when I'm away from home and I have some spare time (as I was with this one) and I don't have the recording equipment it gets tempting to go back to some old ones and tinker and try to improve etc. Cheers Chris

thats some scroll, first time for me mate, i wasnt about when you released it. what a wonderful track beautiful guitar being a father of a daughter myself, i feel all your words, excellent vocal and music and great production Chris, top marks on this bro.
Zootman replied 30th Mar 2023 - 1 year ago
Hi Paul thanks a lot man. Looking forward to hearing more from you, you must be cooking something up. Personally I'm feeling the urge to do more guitar music and have a few things on the go but no time to pursue and develop them.

Hi Michael. Thanks a lot. I didn't realize this was already showing in featured tracks. I hadn't had time to listen or comment to others and I'm about to go bush again for a couple of days. Weston63 did a great remix of it. He's got some very cool stuff on here.

I got the urge to click an acoustic track, and I'm glad I did! Your vocals and the lyrics are wondrous! The guitar work made a perfect bed for these words, and it's tone is awesome. Really liked this song! Faved for sure!

Great sound on the guitar and vocal and excellent performance and composition - Im thinking your daughter must be very happy with a song like that for her own : )
67TwinEngine 28th Jun 2021 16:00 - 3 years ago
Excellent! It's absolutely perfect and your voice is awesome. I downloaded it just to listen as any other song. I was thinking of making a remix with some acoustic bass and just a subtle touch of synths, on the background (softer) keeping your track on the sonic foreground. If I do that I will send you the end result. Thanks for sharing and congratulations for your brilliant work.
Zootman replied 28th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Thanks very much. You're very welcome to have a play around with it. I'd be very curious to hear it. Cheers Chris

Instantly transported back to the 70s. Sweet sounding guitar.
Love the echo on the vocals.

Zootman replied 27th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Thanks Memphis, appreciate that. you know I've had that guitar for about 35 years. I call it Berna after my old german grandmother who left me the money to buy it when she died. but i digress. I did wonder if it was a bit heavy on the reverb maybe I'll go back and change it but you know how it is, sometimes you just gotta move on.

I would definetly put this on my spotify playlist. It is such a good song and recorded very well. I woudnrt change a thing except make the song a bit longer :-). SOmetimes when your vocals are on a low register the lower frequencies are a itchy bit distorting, but i would keep it in to emphasize your very warm vocals. You got talent, sir! Greets, Auke
Zootman replied 27th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago

Wow it feels like I'm discovering pink floyd again for the first time. I can't really explain it, something about this is nostalgic, yet I've never heard this before. This is like a live performance where the singer actually sounds like the studio recording.

Greetings Zoot, I did love this track all the way. To bad it was a little bit to short for me. But still, It has a pleasant ring to it. So yeah very well done indeed. So thumps up for this one. I noticed this track is also live recorded but in a proper way this time. I heard some pieces out there, that didnt sound to great when recorded live. But this one was prety well done. Have a good one and keep up the good work, Verdi

A star has been born! You have a raw natural talent not heard by many here. It is that raw unplugged human sound that draws people to your song. You got natural timeless vocals. The stings are all you need when you have a voice like yours. Man, you should have been doing songs like this out the box on this site. Congrats on a very amazing song that everyone can enjoy. Do not hold back any longer, give us more in the future man, the cat is out of the bag zootman2u.

Mr. Axel
Zootman replied 21st Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Hi Mr Axel, those are some very nice words and immensely flattering. I don't know why it took me so long once I had the hardware/software to go back to where i started with making music - just mucking around on an accoustic and making up little ditties like this and singing them to the walls. easy to be sidetracked i guess. hopefully there'll be some more. thanks again for your very kind words, all the best Chris
orchardstudios 19th Jun 2021 11:20 - 3 years ago
Really liked the honesty about this. As mentioned in one of the comments, I would like to hear this re-recorded, guitar and vocals separate. I think that would be a masterpiece. But, what do I know ?

Keep up the good work....

Zootman replied 21st Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Hi Bill, thanks so much. never know, maybe i'll revisit it but kind of moving on at the moment.

Not sure whether you intended it to be, but this is definitely a throwback to the 60's Folk singer-songwriter era (think Joni Mitchell, Dave Van Ronk, Cat Steven, etc.). Your voice is perfectly matched to this genre. Thanks for sharing it, and well done, you!

Hi Mykael, thanks a lot for your time. No real intentions beyond getting my clumsy fingers in the right place on the fretboard and being half satisfied with the result! some illustrious references you dropped there though.
ClickbaitCabaret 18th Jun 2021 22:54 - 3 years ago
Has a 60's era folk feel to it. Ad a synth track & some dramatic, middle eastern type percussion & this could easily morph into a Dead Can Dance kind of sound.

theHumps 17th Jun 2021 14:32 - 3 years ago
Nothing like an acoustic git and a singer. Singer/songwriter music is my passion. It makes the performer vulnerable and exposed and the ability of that person to write now becomes very important as the song needs to hold it's weight with so little going on.

I think it sounds fine, the acoustic has some nice reverb on it. I usually always record the instruments and singing separately, for mixing purposes, it's easier I think. You did a great job for recording and playing all at once. Dig the lyrics too!

Zootman replied 17th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
yeah a bit like finding yourself naked in public eh! Separate would definitely be easier for mixing etc but then when u sing you've got to work out where the words are supposed to go and i find that hard, specially like in this one with no real steady beat. guess its a trade off in spontaneity and other things. Anyways, i appreciate your time and comments, thanks.
DijamMusic 17th Jun 2021 03:13 - 3 years ago
Hello Mate,
Wow, this is brilliant the guitar and the vocal.
Well done my friend.
I Love the track if you want me to mix it for you for free just PM.
Great job
Zootman replied 17th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Hi Maj, very glad you enjoyed it. Sure be great if you want to have a crack at it. I'll message you as I'm not sure how to go about it. Also, it was recorded live onto 2 mics so I guess you can't really separate the guitar from the vocal. but you know much more about this than i do i'm sure :)
CINCOCENT 16th Jun 2021 20:23 - 3 years ago
Yeah the word I meant to say was musician you are a true musician I wish I could be under that category
Zootman replied 16th Jun 2021 - 3 years ago
Thanks I'd hesitate to give that label to myself, it took at least 12 takes to get this little thing half right lol. Besides, whether you're writing and playing something from scratch, or using loops and samples, u still gotta have some sort of an ear. Which u obviously have in abundance.
CINCOCENT 16th Jun 2021 20:21 - 3 years ago
Me personally I think there's two categories of producers if you want to call it on here. And I call myself a creator. But you and many others a real artist. Real producers of the industry. Excellent bravo. Well put together. Love the story line. So much music I listen to but I don't know how to create it. And this track and type is one of them. My main vibe is hip hop but tracks like these are the go to. To take my mind and soul away.
LJmbbremen 16th Jun 2021 17:44 - 3 years ago
I can say what the commentators below wrote and say that this is the best voice I´ve heard from you so far. Everything (there is not really much going on) is right on point. Where are the lyrics from? Great work!

I had a cheap little Yamaha acoustic guitar that I borrowed and mic'd and some congas that were given to me as a birthday present. I used my iPad GarageBand app to record the strings and the big bass drum thingy at the interlude and little electric guitar parts in there too haha. All the vocals were done by myself and my brother throws in some little things here and there with his voice :P Enjoy!
