      I, of course, will try... but I have to tell you... if I'm not feeling it, it's not going to translate well. Really... 2 full nights of tracking vox... I have like 22 takes of vocals.

        I'm just giving you a hard time. Do whatever works for you.

            Me too.



            I don't know how many times I have tried to implement a change that should work better only to go back to the original that had that feeling of spontaneity and emotion. Nothing will take those away with more certainty than......22 takes.



            Don't listen to Justin.

                Wow!



                I just went back and listened to the first version...the ORIGINAL. I LOVE the way you sing those lines. Love it. You fit your voice around those long notes so well. That is how this song should be sung.



                Can't believe the liberties I took with it.



                In fact.....the whole song sounds great in that take. Not sure how I would even suggest changing anything, except maybe the timing of that second guitar's entry....and that nit is too small to be picked.



                Start another one.

                  Thanks for that Lenny (and OGP).



                  So... I'm looking to do one more thing to it (in addition to solid vocal takes)... and that is to add a more meaningful guitar solo before the current one... I've recruited a guy I play with in a local band who is just a fantastic and tasteful guitar player. Really looking forward to hearing what he can do with it... Oswlek's idea, which I'm eager to try, is to solo out of Chorus #2 and resolve into the current bridge (which is currently my lame guitar playing). I'm thinking that current bridge can be dynamic though... the peak of the solo with the change of chords and that melodic line as the resolve.

                    Dude, I've listened to this song no less than a hundred times in the past week, and I'm not remotely sick of it.  My daughter has even memorized it because it is playing nearly every time we drive anywhere. 


                    Anyway, now that I've totally immersed myself in it, I feel more strongly than ever that the new solo isn't quite right.  I'm sorry to be a pain in the ass, but the original just flows 100X better.  Every time I listen to the new one I have to prepare myself or else it totally breaks the flow for me.

                    If this song weren't so damn good, I'd just drop it already (same deal with "She Refused") but this isn't just professional quality stuff, it is historical quality stuff.  It is as good as anything in Lennon or Gilmour's catalogs.  Anything.  I want to see it the best it can be.

                    I do get what Os is saying about the song structure/chord movement providing a lift at the solo in the original version.  What I'm saying is that I don't particularly care for what that structure/movement does to the guitar solo that occupies that part of the song.  I'm sure you could go back and tweak something and make it even better than it already is.  However, if I were you, I'd be satisfied with the pretty awesome take you have now (the one with Avery's extended solo).

                    And one more disclaimer: I'm probably the weakest all-around musician of any of the regulars here.  Heck, I think that's probably the first time I've ever called myself a musician.  So, you probably shouldn't take my opinion too seriously.
