Liking the live loose feel to it.  With a jazzy guitar meets the Waterboys
I think it would be good to play live

Thanks Neil.

I don't know about playing this live. I do get good feedback. I just hold back on playing it.
I'll press on with diligence and wonder. I'll improve. Maybe, pride and prejudice permitting, you'll get on board, maybe not,  either way, t.b.h, I couldn't care less.

And there you have it.

It's  a really intriguing recording.  It sounds modern though the lyric/poem are not.  I  love the simplicity of the guitar and vocal and enjoyed your guitar style.  I think that  Songwriting is quite a different discipline to writing poetry though obviously there are many similarities.  You've done a great job of setting the words to music here.  The words obviously are very good but the task would have frustrated me as I like to use identical syllables for sections. Writing music to established words doesn't always allow for that approach. 

It's always great to hear new work from yourself.  thanks for sharing.

I found putting music to this poem really simple. I think the skills needed for one and the other often overlap.
For me I mostly used to disregard the syllable count and try to get the sentiment over. I less so these days, and it's easier to adhere to the sylable count technique.

I'm glad you liked the show. Stay tuned I'll try to keep up with the quality.
I'll press on with diligence and wonder. I'll improve. Maybe, pride and prejudice permitting, you'll get on board, maybe not,  either way, t.b.h, I couldn't care less.

Hi Rightly

I like how you have done this. Its simplicity brings more focus to the vocal and lyrics and both are great. It's a really reflective song and I think the hook is really good, got me hooked. It's really nice to hear the song in this way too and despite it being a one take kind of thing I think it sounds really smooth!

Really nice stuff

Darren

I am so jealous of your guitar skills, damn.
Also the song is nice and catchy. I can imagine listening to this sat in a farm shop cafe on a sunny day, eating a ploughmans sandwich and talking about a fun filled morning with your family. (I can get a bit visual with music sorry XD)

This is awesome. I'm totally impressed. Awesome guitar, funky rhythm. Beautiful melodies in both the verse and chorus.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

Rock on!

Hi Rightly,

great song well played ansd sung. Reminds me of 1970s acoustic folk, a good thing. I don't hear anything else that go with it. The acoustic guitar with your vocal is enough to satisfy me.
