this is a lovelly sounding song... but it can be better. Your vocal and guitar need more balancing. Bring up the guitar and the flute and bring the reverb down a bit on the vocal. You have a real good vocal sound. Pan the flute to left or right and maybe double track the guitar and pan them left and right. i lived in Florida for 20 years.... nice to find this song.

best regards,

Thank you, Jack. I appreciate an honest critique and hope that others will do the same. This is from my first CD and we threw it together in about two's a long story. I'm working on the next one in a new studio and I'm happy with how it's turning out. I'll keep this in mind if I decide to do this song over! Personally, I prefer to perform live with no technology! Where in Florida?

West Palm Beach area. We left about 5 years ago, but I have many, many memories and more than a few friends there. I know what you mean about recording. I find sometimes I just hit on a mix that works. Other times... always not quite "there." I am an amateur at recording, for sure, but have had some helpful input over the past couple years from some talented people. Hopefully a smidgen of it took : ) Myself, I am more interested in writing a good song, one that a listener enjoys regardless of its technical perfection or lack thereof.
