This song is not in a battle

Its a waltz. Emmylou Harris has done a duet with everybody in the world except me.

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

People who don't like this style are going to say it was long & monotonous. However, I think you have nailed it. Interesting lyrics too. My only sugestions would be to ditch the piano intro, give it a more prominent bass track and maybe add some backing harmonies in the chorus. Good job.

Damn, I liked that piano!
But I know what arroseuk means - it's not quite in keeping with the rest of the song.  Perhaps you could have the piano in the background so it fits in better.... or perhaps you should just drop it

The guitar is a bit high in the treble, and the bass guitar does need to do something else in my opinion.

But it's well recorded, and is not a bad song for all that.  Not my favourite genre, but an pleasant listen any way.

Not my favorite genre, but a very nice listen.  Piano intro fits, vocal's pleasant (harmonies, rarity on the Amp, are there too),  all in all a good piece.  Gets a high rating.

Kinda whistles because I'm a rookie hack when it comes to engineering/mixing/recording Thanks for the kind words!
