Maybe we all should slow down.....yeah that means you too

Maybe we all should slow down.....yeah that means you too


Ah! Feaker is back! I knew we’d be hearing more from you!


This is really nice, Paul. I love that “many-things-to-do-chorus.” Very different musical direction than the rest of the song, which emphasizes your message beautifully. Nice 70’s British touch.

Your recording is SO clean. I love that I can hear the breaths in your vocals (I always edit that out! I’m gonna start leaving it in now!), but cannot hear other distracting noises. I like the vocals up front the way you have them. So crisp and intimate. Sounds like you’re right here.

The guitars sound a little tentative in the beginning. Very fragile, sort of. However, I don’t know that I’d change them. I think that adds to the intimacy I’m talking about. However, when you shift into that cool British piece, I’m hearing maybe a departure from that, with a little tighter sound, a little more build (not much though!).

Definitely use the bass more. Just inch up the volume a tad. I think it adds a lot to the song! But I can’t hear it enough, especially on the verses! But the chorus too: they’re “there” but I think bringing them up would add the the energy of the chorus, and add fullness as well.

I might bring the vocals down a touch though, but I don’t know that I’d touch anything with fx on the vocals.

Last, Paul, in the short time I’ve been on this forum (just a few months), I’ve learned to appreciate you as a tender heart with a something to say. There’s a cool verse in Proverbs 15:1 that says, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” I love that, and that’s you, man! Your music has a wonderful lyrical depth and richness to it, that is enhanced by your gentle, simple, delicate way of delivering it musically. You have a lot to say, a lot to offer, and your music makes a difference, buddy. Thank you! Keep doin’ what yer doin’ :slight_smile:


“And another thing…”

Thanks for re-posting your “I’m Very Sad” song. I just noticed you put it back up. Will listen to it and make some comments there later. Again, glad you’re “back”!!



Hi Tes guy:) You offer me many great ideas and things to think about sir. There is no pressure to do music anymore. I am not even thinking if one of my songs are going to be heard in an elevator some day. It is just a blast tho putting a track together (even one as simplistic as this one) I take these comments and put them in a word document to be viewed later. As I read your take on the song, I had it playing in the background and agree totally of your assessment. I just don’t know why I don’t hear these things myself. ha ha
As far as having a tender heart, I think as we get older, we value feelings and the little things that were omitted early on. As far as the other song that I took down, I put it back not looking for comments, just that it wasn’t right to do that in the first place whether the song was good or not, It wasn’t ha ha If this track made a difference to you, that is big to me. thanks a ton
