    It rocks Homes! Only thing is bring the lead guitar up there at the last. Cool lyrics, great playing, great production!

      Thanks, AJ! And thanks for the Soundcloud comment

      I didn't want to overdo the volume on the lead guitars, since there are three parts playing in unison

        According to Ernest Buckley's predictions for 2015: "1) Mark will eventually come to the Dark Side and start using his DAW full time."

                    Mark,

                    I really like the tune. The lyrics are simple but potent, exactly what I love.

                    More of this Mark and when you`re ready, lets put it all on 1 huge album!

                    And btw, the drums which I know you are just starting to get the hang of, sound like they belong so you`re right on track mate. Trust your instincts.

                    The force is strong with you.

                    E

                      Wonderful song, no frills, fantastic flow. The only suggestion I'd make is I'd love to hear a background keyboard part like a Hammond in the section from 1:37 to 29...I think that would help break up the arrangement a bit.

                      You should really try not doubling your voice sometime. If you're concerned about pitch, hey, there's Melodyne! Your background vocals on my new song sound fine when isolated. You could use the single voice when you wanted a stronger connection to the listener, then revert to doubled for choruses and such.

                      Also I think the guitar level at the end is fine because it sounds like the effect you want is that it has to fight a little bit to be heard. Sometimes I want vocals to sound like they're fighting to be heard, sometimes I want them to "pop" and the same can apply to any lead.

                      BTW I'd forgotten about Your Online Dream, what a great song!! It was a real treat to have it come on afterward. I think it's time to go trolling through Sound Cloud and pick another Mark L song to cover.

                        I can`t believe you went there.

                          Of course I did! If a vocal is great except for one note that drops pitch toward the end, then fix it. No one will hear a difference, no one will care, and you won't have to recut or punch the vocal.

                          Melodyne is also great to un-pitch correct. Sometimes when I do doubling some lines are exactly on pitch. It's really hard for me to sing a couple cents flat or sharp, but Melodyne makes it easy to uncorrect "correct" vocals.
