This song suits your strengths. Your voice is perfect on this. Love the lyrics too. Saw that this was getting some good feedback while I was at work and now that I've heard it twice, I've got to add to that feedback.

thanks, it's possible it is slightly out of tune, to itself or to key, i remember tuning it that day, and it holds a tune well, but i typically will tune it to the digital, and then 'fix' it here and there... and the strings are i don't know how old, they were on the guitar when i got it, a couple years ago maybe, and i liked the old flat tone, so i left them on... i always love old strings, and then love the new ones when i put them on...

I really do love this... The vocals are heartbreakingly beautiful, and I love the space you've left in the song by making it just guitar and vocals. I think the length is perfect.

The melody is subtle and beautiful, and unfolds nicely.

thanks guys, yeah unkle, the recording is fairly recent, the song is a couple years old, but i keep playing with it, it hasn't found a final form, maybe it just has lots of forms... i'd love to hear a duet with a female...

him "i've dreamed of flying away somewhere with you"
her "i've dreamed of crying, the day I'd marry you"
him "when you'd say to me"
her "baby, I do"

together, "cause i've been waiting, I've been waiting, I've been waiting..."

definitely could tip into country

this is decent: is this more recent than your other stuff- you've submitted recently?
I really like the feel, and it's near country, it reminds me of ol country for sure,

it's got a slow pace, and it's cool dude,
way to go, didnt even see this in the battle que

thanks for the feedback y'all...

tj, it's funny you say that, because that's how i prefer to play it, 2 verses... sometimes with a short instrumental bridge and back to the guitar melody and fade out... short and sweet.

for a long time it was just one verse and i enjoyed it like that, then one day i added an instrumental bridge, and i liked that... but my wife kept asking for a second verse because she wanted me to play it longer... i told i wasn't going to write one until one wrote itself, and some time later, the second verse popped into my head and i was done with verses...

2 verse, short bridge, back to melody fade out...

but i wondered if it should have one more, and she kind of wanted one more verse, and i remembered something paul simon said about bridge over troubled waters, and wanting it to be 2 verses, but everyone convinced him to add one more verse to complete the song, so that's what i did here, and dropped the bridge because at this tempo, it's just too dragged out if i have the bridge (this is the slow version)...

so this version is like the alternate version, but not my habitual version, and so i really wanted to see how this would be 'heard'

itchy, i understand exactly what you mean about synching up.

this one is a work in progress, and i appreciate all the feedback... it's helpful.

This is really good. Your voice sounds great on it. I like the simplicity of the music and everything sounds really honest. If this were my song I'd recommend fading out after the hoo's around 3:00. By that point in the song everything's already been said what's need to be said. I think a short snapshot is better. Just a bittersweet gem.

The rest seems a little bit superfluous to me.

Perhaps if there was a banjo (hint) that came in and changed up the sound in the latter part of the song my opinion would change.

the playing and singing is nice here. My favorite parts are 1) the first time you sing "to be waiting, to be waiting, to be waiting, to be waiting, for you..." and 2) all of the "hoo hoos". Those are great. I like the concept -- he hasn't met her yet, but still he's waiting for her -- but the rest of the lyrics are so so. What saves them is your vocal delivery -- nice and exposed. I guess it's like this, the lyrics feel like the story is made up, not real, never happened. But your singing feels real, like this really happened to you. I'd like the two to synch up.

Pretty lil ditty, mang. I like the simplicity...it highlights your voice and gives the guitar room to breathe. Not so much my usual thing (whatever that means) but I enjoyed it. It's soothing. Nicely done.

I love this
the first verse is a poem by Ryan (Deepwater)

the second verse came to me a couple years later...

this song is evolving...

One Thousand Times

copyright 2004 sugarman/less

note: the song has an instrumental bridge which i omitted, sometimes i play the instrumental bridge, but don't feel like singing the last verse, and, sometimes i play it faster... it all depends on my mood when i play it... at this tempo, the instrumental bridge doesn't fit at all unless i drop the last verse...
