    I play bass and I sing. I started writing in the last year. I was playing bass for an outlaw country type band for a bit. That dried up with the pandemic, so I started putting energy into writing and singing. This is lofi or something like that. No real drums. Just me and my friend who plays guitar on the track. I wasn't aiming for perfection with this.

    If you do check it out I'd appreciate if you gave me some opinions.

    I like the song and the production. I wouldn't call it "lofi" but it's not as bright and trebly as a lot of recordings nowadays, and IMO that's a good thing. You might want to cut the length down to 5 minutes or less if you can.

    Um...what's up with that on-the-floor action at 0:19?:eek::laugh:

    Sounds great to me, I like your voice and the simplicity of the production.
    Guitar work is very good too.
    The video seriously does nothing for the song.
    I get that it's probably meaningful to you but personally I enjoyed the song a lot more when I stopped looking and just listened.

    I think I'm hoping to record this group of songs in the not to distant future. I guess if I end up forming a band and having decent gigging. Thanks for the kind words about liking it. This song was my first effort at classic(in my mind)style writing. I hope the other songs I wrote grew a bit after I wrote the 1st. If that makes sense. I'm happy with the song but I hope I have better in me as I keep gaining experience.

    The guy losing his mind at :19 was great. Him and poofy haired guy seem like a good bunch.

    Thanks a lot. I'm having the biggest learning curve with my voice. I think I'll be more comfortable in a year or two hopefully.

    I think I should probably have an EP cover as the backdrop for the rest of the songs. I already have another video lined upnfor a song called Living The Dream but I might wanna do a backround for the rest of the stuff I put on YouTube. thanks for the feedback on the song.

    I appreciate you guys taking the time and giving me feedback. It's important to be introspective imo.

    Final bump in hopes for more feedback.

    I do think I'm gonna cut down on the last set of 'why's' during the last chorus. Use a variation there to keep that chorus a bit more catchy hopefully.

    Also, I'm hoping I find where my voice naturally sounds more quality with work. I kinda feel like the bridge is a more comfortable place for my voice to work from. I also think the lower notes on the verse are better than the higher ones.
