This is so cool. Glad I came back to listen. I love hearing my band mates playing something I wrote, I can’t imagine hearing an orchestra. How cool. I look forward to hearing the piece for your sister.

Thank you! I’ve been trying to write again instead of just winging it. The result are more intentional lyrics and arrangements. I really appreciate the comment. Means a lot.

Fixed it with an updated version with new vocals, new background vocals and some added percussion. Sorry BC. Thank you Devac

Not sure how I missed this comment. Sorry. I treat each song differently. I basically adjust EQ and put custom reverb on. These days the guitars are run through real amps and mic’d. Bass is DI and EQ’d. Vocals through a condenser mic and EQ reverb added. Drums with same mic overhead. Lots of shakers and tambourine. All real. Strings etc are all plugins. Wish I could play violin and horns but I just can’t. Yet. :) but I know how to write and arrange string parts. At least, I think I do. It’s maybe the most fun part.

The little acoustic section is lame too. Bummer. Like the first guitar solo a lot.

I hate the piano in the beginning. It takes away what were some cool moments. It’s too bright and just beats the you over the head with that line. Ugh.

I was not aware of this song until recently. I feel like most people are. It’s amazing. Lyrically and musically. Such strong Melodie’s. Cultural confluence. Love it so much.
