i really really like you're voice, kinda reminds me of walter schreiffels or rival schools. the song was good, but i don't remember the melody at all after hearing it. but the lyrics were good and different. my only complaint is i didn't remember the melody or hook, which could be my fault

right on Aaron, yes well playing out is not for everyone but it takes less courage than you might imagine, and any musician should feel lucky to find you. The songs and frontman are the absolute hardest to come by. Anyway- my advice is book an open stage in advance and then have a few drinks, and maybe salvia, or whatever floats your boat. Start with 2-3 songs, and I swear people will praise you, and say all kinds of nice things. I think 9 of 10 people would agree the feedback and energy you get live is much better than the fizz.

TIP: bring your own fans, the more people you can get to come along the better, at 1st anyway

Thanks Zissou!

Thanks Poolhouse, that line "and i would regret your memory if I didn't tell you so" was one of the few i contributed to the song... it needed a second verse, so i wrote one patterned after the first which Ryan wrote mostly as is, and then took another song or songs ryan had written and used lines from there to create the "and now when the sun comes shining through" part.

you've got plenty of songs to build I nice little solo acoustic set. you really should go for it if that's what you want to do. I predict you'll build up a nice little following...
I know what you mean about not knowing what the scene is like, but who cares. I hope you have the confidence to take this public, because you've got the talent...

Beautiful song, wow!
Your last several recordings have been really clean. Love the foot keeping the beat on the pine floor ...
The "and I" is a great little hook and you sing it perfectly..
And Ryan's lyrics are great too, "And I would regret your memory
If I didn't tell you so" is absolutely brilliant. I'm downloading this, I'm a huge fan.

thanks uncle... i'm listening to your friend now... i like it...

I think, at some point, i'll have to do some more open mic type things (i've done it only rarely), and see what kind of feedback i get... and see how i develop as a performer...

partly, i think i have to actually perceive people enjoy me live, and want to hear more... that i see that they enjoy 'me' enough that i could move beyond open-mic things where people accept that whoever gets up is an amateur and thus will most likely sound like one...

i don't have much exposure to live acts, except rare concerts i go to... the last one i think was john fogerty, so there's a difference... between the famous polished acts i see, and myself... i'm not in touch with the group/culture of people who go hear unknown artists perform live...

i've had limited exposure to coffee house/bar live acts. don't get out much, and my music is so acoustic/folk oriented, as is, i'd have to find the right venue/scene...

but the few times i've performed live, i love it, even when it's just karaoke. it's on the to do list... maybe i should get out more and investigate...

thanks again for your support.

Aaron, the reason I suggested that was because I've got a acquaintance, who plays with a violin, among other things , and though he's not as talented as you a violin really helps his sound, and I can envision a similar thing with your music. Plus if you find a really good one, you can trade solos, and vocal riffs with one, and that's great fun. Anyway- yes, you'd be great live, it's the best part of music, aside from meeting people and hangin out and you deserve more recognition. Free drinks don't hurt either.

thanks for the kind words everyone. i'm still working on figuring out how to best sing this one within my sometimes shrinking vocal range, but i appreciate that you can appreciate the song as is, and give me feedback. unkle, it's a very good question, and i ask myself things like that all the time, and i just don't know the answer, but for a moment i visualized myself onstage with strings, violin or cello, an upright base, some subtle percussion, doing an acoustic show, and having a nice together sound, and i felt a step closer, thanks for the image.

This is great stuff! As always, your voice lulls me into listening to the song. Then I wait to hear if you deliver the goods and this time you delivered them faster than the Pony Express TM.

I got into this well. The lyrics were sometimes close to being cheesy and had they been delivered from any other person, they might have come off that way but luckily, thing worked out great this time.

very soothing and flowing
the guitar playing is very precise, and the subtlety of the notes goes very well with the playing

you are never too self indulgent, and Ive never seen a song of yours top more than 4-5 mins for sure.

You have a gift and a knack, and an ego in check
when are you going to release an album and start playing out man?
I can see you with strings, cellos and violins doing this stuff, or whatever

but my advice is definitely take this to the next level

the echo works too for this.. no complaints

This vulnerable voice draws us in...and the story and lyrics are so sweet, the singing so honest....vocally, the singer has proved himself unique and distinctive, while not ever wholly predictable. The "I" hook is subtle but infectiously memorable. Beauty! I can hear strings with this in my head, but that's probably why you don't really need them....

Fragile and confident and sweet. The subtle aura of music is a nice touch.
i recorded this take as a warm-up between other songs i was recording recently... it's not the best vocally, and i flub up the guitar, but when i listened to it the other day, i thought, why not post it, it's a better recording than my 2004 demo on cassette. i discovered a couple days ago i do a better vocal with it capo'd up a bit, with a lower voice, but i'm gonna work on that for awhile, i haven't found total comfort with the vocal performance on this yet...

Girl in the Corner

I first noticed you
Sitting in the corner
Crying out your eyes
So I moved in close to dry them
And I saw confirmation
In your gentle sighs
And I found captivation
In your faint reply...

When I asked you, "What's the trouble?"
And you turned and looked at me...
"I've been waiting for you a million years it seems."

When I first noticed you
Sitting in the corner
I was all alone
I didn't have a care to bind me
And I saw something missing
In your winded soul
And I would regret your memory
If I didn't tell you so

So I asked you, "What's the trouble?"
And you turned and looked at me...
"I've been waiting for you a million years it seems."

Now, when the sun comes shining through
Into that heart of yours so true
Well, your love just pours all over me
So drop your worries and your cares
From that heart of yours so dear
And then your soul will feel so clear...
