Every Day

Originally written 10 years ago... but just this week I returned to the DAW, dragged out the instruments, got in front of the mic and gave it a shot...

Nice to have you back..hope you've been ok,

Good song and the rather plaintive singing sets it of nicely, like the backing track..not sure if the vox isn't mixed a bit high, good work mate...best, Kevin

Short answer... "no". 2013 has been a total arse ... and sadly it aint over yet! :evil: Family deaths, job loss and cancer...

Yeah... vox could be a bit high in the mix. As it happens I've just today gone back to this and done a MAJOR edit. I decided it was way too 'bitsy'... too many parts. I think the new edit is a little more cohesive. I just need to redo some parts to fit with the new structure.

Yeah... the beach, it's called Pakiri - a long white sand beach that stretches almost as far as the eye can see 8-)

But good to have you back, I will have a listen at home.

G'day Ian,

It's been a long time.

I was just browsing around and thought of the people I used to banter with and share music with. So I come back on to the forum to see who might still be around. And there you are, and with such ordinary tidings! And Jet too!

So many things have changed but life will find a way. I know, I've been there too.

I joined up again just to pass you my best wishes and if you can let Jet know I'm thinking about him as well I'd appreciate it.

So take care and keep writing and recording. I was always in awe of what you could do.

All the best

Jonathan

Wow, that is a bad year. I hope 2014 is better for you though. The song is listenable as usual and mix sounds clear. Some of the chords remind me a wee bit of some Sonic the Hedgehog videogame music I've just been listening to, which is cool, sounds good in both. Nice to see you back writing, recording and posting.
