    Something different for me. I'm really pleased with the Orchestration - let me know what you all think.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    The lyrics at the beginning are a little bit hard to understand. They seem to be a little bit buried in the mix. Once the song gets going the lyrics are much easier to understand. I am listening to this through my Toshiba television set. The composition and the orchestrations are very very nice.

    Thanks for having a listen... I am singing low and quiet at the beginning so there's more impact later in the song

    It was very hard to mix to be honest.

    I really like the orchestration and instrumentation as well. It sounds very pleasing and soothing...The low vocals in the beginning sounded like they could be punchier (they also sounded somewhat unmixed). Once the high vocals come, everything seems to fall back in place. Nice song!

    The mix sounds pretty good. No nits stuck out there on a first listen. (Yeah, the vocal is pretty buried initially, but I'd accept that as a stylistic choice)

    I like the build.

    The one thing I'd change initially is to add more variety to the vocal melody at the start. It gets a little repetitive.

    The vocals are kind of blurried in the beggining, but actually reminded me of Elliot Smith for a while. Dont think it sounds bad at all and the orchestration was really nicely done. The end sounds a little bit like there is a lot going on (but just my opinion, ok?) What mic have you used on the vocals?

    Hi, Dave,

    I want to hear your song; but I cannot make it play on that SoundClud system. Perhaps you can help me find and play it with some explicit step-by-step KEYBOARD-ONLY INSTRUCTIONS, assuming that I am sitting in your post about the song. What do I do TOTALLY WITHOUT A MOUSE in order to play the song (I have an account on Soundcloud). I emphasize some things in uppercase because so many sighted people immediately grab the mouse and try to "mouse me" to the place; but blind people do not use a mouse.

    Thanks, and I look forward to hearing your song.

    Hi,

    I have no idea. How have you listened to things in the past? Is there something I can do that you know has worked previously?
