I stripped down all the layers of guitars and effects that I usually use and recorded only my voice and an acoustic guitar.

Not cause I wanted to, but because my computer died and I borrowed my girlfriend's computer and those are pretty much the only tracks hers can handle... a voice and a guitar with a little reverb.


I'm not sure if I do this right... here it goes:

If this doesn't work it's the first song on my page.

LMAO! I usually sleep until after noon. My regular hours are 8 PM to about 6 AM. I use to start work at 2 PM so I would wake up about 1:30 in the afternoon.

I can't get much done on my girlfriend's computer so I may crash out early today. 4:30 - 5:00 am or so... Some reason loud music in the silence of the neighborhood always makes me feel alive!!!! I'll be talking with you a little later!

Hey Erik,
Nice sound/vibe on the guitar. I like the retro feel and again it reminds me of Alvin Lee. That's a good thing in my book. It's an honest recording. Very raw but draws you into it's atmosphere. Your vocals are improving. Keep working on your voice. Good work all in all my friend. -Rich

@ Rich: Thanks for your thoughts. Last time you mentioned Alvin Lee I ended up covering "I'd Love To Change The World," looks like I'll have to cover "I'm Going Home" now! Maybe I'll just listen to it instead... I just remembered how long it took me for the first cover! The vocals improved the day I got the new mic you recommended - thanks for the kick in the a s s that got me to spend more time on vocals too!

@ Frank: There was experimenting involved. You are right about reverb... now that I think about it, I remember the reverb sounding good the first round of recording until I heard it the next day and had to cut back on reverb - so I guess it could have been worse! I'll talk with you once I get my computer back from being serviced. It's been gone for 9 days! DAMN!

Loving the guitar work! Sounds fantastic! And I'm normally very picky about vocals, but yours were fine! Keep up the good work!

Sometimes you discover things when your taken away from your normal enviroment.Stripped down and bare reveals more about anyone than the comfort of effects and a familiar set up.I like you when your down to the bare bones.You step up to the plate and deliver.Obviously the production could be a little better but even that doesnt disguise the fact that your comfortable doing what you do.Onward and upward EJ.

Thanks for sharing this. I really enjoyed listening. Best of luck, it is clear that you have a strong idea about the direction your music is taking. Well done.

(I wish I could play guitar Sad )

this is a bit melancholic not meaning this is bad..
there are emotions in that songs.
the guitar melody is a bit repeative however.
nice one i can hear your fingers sweeping on the ropes...
this song call me to a distant dream Smile

thanks to share !

Hey Gunner! Of course you could have a go at the tune. Download it from my page. I sent you a PM.

PPB: Thanks for you feedback! Funny thing is my mom told me the same thing. She said she loved the song but thought it was too long because of the repeating part. I would have ended it sooner if I thought it was done. LOL!

Thanks guys!
