    TELL ME WHY


    Never been the kind to say whatís on my mind
    What I want to tell you is how I feel
    I get so afraid you might be my worst mistake
    I toss and turn in bed at night can we get it right

    (CHORUS):
    TELL ME WHY does it seem
    It always has to come down to you and me
    I try to sing a different song
    But it donít last too long
    TELL ME WHY is it so
    I canít seem to ever let you go
    My mind tells me to walk away
    But my heart says stay
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY

    Youíre no good for me, Iím no good for you
    Still we stay together even though
    Sometimes I get confused why we do the things we do
    Caught in this web of love thatís all tangled up

    (CHORUS):
    TELL ME WHY does it seem
    It always has to come down to you and me
    I try to sing a different song
    But it donít last too long
    TELL ME WHY is it so
    I canít seem to ever let you go
    My mind tells me to walk away
    But my heart says stay
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY
    Wonít you TELL ME WHY

    Very nice arrangement. The chorus sounds really good. Everything seems to have good levels to me. Your vocals are upfront ... rightfully so, with vocals like that. The guitar part in the beginning seems very tense, like the strings are plucked pretty hard. Plus theres a little fret buzz which I tend to move away from but thats an opinionated sound. Some like it some dont I suppose. I can also hear the compression on the guitar, at least I think so. Everything but the above listed, sounds pristine and very well tracked. Very nice song, I may have even heard it on the board a little ways back. The chorus seems to stick.

    VERY GOOD!
    I think I heard this one before but I didn't have opportunity to post my ENVY.
    Tell me about your ac guitar. How did you get it so good?
    Tell me about everything. (Or "teach me" is the right phrase)
    I don't like steel guitars in generally but this one is fitting perfectly.

    I don't like country music, but your production sounded good to my humble ears. A slight hitch on FALL DOWN ON ME however: the right panned picked guitar is flat. Your vocal sounded very slightly flat to begin with, also. Just little things to be improved, though, nothing major :-)

    this is an excellent song. Great performance, arrangement and production. Good job, man. My only nit would be the intro guitar panned slightly to one side. But that might be my short-coming, as I like things symmetrical. It feels really good when the violin comes in and balances out the panning. eh, don't change a thing....

    cheers,
