Description : So wrote this over the last couple of days, it's sort of acoustic down-tempo hip-hop, the beat, music, drums, I wrote with vst's, wrote the vocal and sang. It's a fact time is more valuable as you get older. The inspiration was a time of my life when time wasn't an issue.i openly admit I'm not the greatest singer, but this surprised me, im sure you'll tell me your opinions

    I like this one! Indeed I enjoy the "Latin" vibe!

    Thanks mate I've only just started singing really, never will be great but having fun, that's what it's all about, but like I said just doing it for me more than anything, the comments are warming and encouraging and I at least feel I can have a go without feeling apprehensive, thanks for checking me out bro, and enjoying the Latin vibe

    Vocals definitely need work but I'm not shaming the song in any way. Like some previous comments mentioned, your vocals are a little further back in the mix than they should be(?) It's all based on the sound you're going for but I would personally add a little volume to them. Saturation, low cut, compression, etc. Practice never makes perfect but it makes improvement.

    All love,

    Thanks Nathan, I'll never be a great singer no matter what, i just do it for fun hoping it will encourage others who are good but lack the courage, try to improve though :) but I liked my music in this

    Well i need to say that you have the balls and you make progression with your voice.
    The first time i almost diddnt hear your voice and now you start to have more trust in your self.
    Keep practicing because you have a beautiful soft voice that starts to sound everytime more clearer.
    The beat is also great and the vocal fits well on it.

    Rita thanks so much for the compliment, your so true I'm finding more confidence in my voice, I have the experience to make it sound better from learning from everyone here, you have just repeated what most of my close friends said, it's the first time they almost didn't here me. And there is very minimal fx on the vocal just a little wetness I altered the attack and release and some EQ parameters, so pleased with the comments on the vibe, and I'll let you in to a little secret, for the first I was relaaxed whilst singing, I wanted to sing, it wasn't forced, I think the difference shows

    What's up Paul,

    First off, you know I loved the way you were pushing the envelope with the rhythms, creativity is what it's all about.

    I think your Microphone or the way you EQ'ed the Vocals was the only thing that I thought could be different. Then again I've been loosing my hearing of certain frequencies over the last few years so..... It could just be me.

    Great track. Faved..

    PEACE...

    Hey Rob, thanks for checking me out again, your spot on with the EQ I tried two slightly differnt settings for effect but there is a slight rise and the mic is cheap tat. I'll have to invest in a better omni-directional one, I'm currently in the process of planning an upgrade of everything as I'm 13 months in to producing and now want more and better options including both hardware and software as my experience and :) balls grow in this field

    I like the guitar in this...I'm always searching for a vst I can use when I want guitar in a track..anything to keep me from pulling and actual guitar off the wall..yeap, I'm lazy like that.

    Track has a nice nostalgic feel to it..so the vocals fits well with the track..to me anyways

    Nice job.

    Thanks for the listen BeatMaker, you picked up the nostalgic aspect. It's a reflection of my time, I left home very young 16, after college, moved hundreds of miles away from home to work on a holiday camp I was and still are a Street dancer, never went back, I live 180 miles from home now but built a family, broke it, made mistakes, but have my kids both adults and grandchildren to keep me warmer, show me love when I'm older and more to come, daughter's first in two months, I'm blessed when I consider the whole picture

    Ahh Time, it seems to move so much quicker as you get older. I did get that PR vibe, but it felt more Spanish Harlem in the seventies. Very Tender voice you have mate. good work

    Thanks Cru, that word tender means so much to me, that's what I was trying to achieve a softness to show how time is important to us all as we age, there's is some raw words in their too personal to me as has been mentioned, it has a Puerto Rican vibe but I do get Spanish Harlem too but would never be as vain as to think I could get that vibe personally, so your compliment means a lot mate

    It reminds me of a bustling city and this playing in the background in the early 70's. Yeah, the sounds of a big city, in a way a bit like Santana's music back in the day.

    I don't have a great voice and I sing, just go for it!

    Thanks for the listen and comment Wayne, I will always give it a go, I like to write vocals just wish I could sing them better but Im trying to be more original and enjoying writing my own beats and music, so I'm sure more will come

    Vocals sounds good. No shame in letting it rip. Definitely some raw lyrics.

    For some reason it reminds me the streets in Puerto Rico, specifically Old San Jaun. I spent some time there recently. Coincidence?

    An easy vibe love the strings in the background.

    Cheers mate, I'll never be you :)) but really chuffed it provided you a memory of Old San Juan, I know how much you enjoyed it you didn't want to leave, I love the Puerto Rican vibe
