    Hi guys! Here is a clip of something I recently did, with a South African flavor, you might say. All the voices are mine. A little message about our world in these times. I hope you like it. Nice to be back after a few months break!

    Any comments or criticism most welcome!

    Cheers,

    Did you do all the "female" voices in the background also?

    Pretty neat stuff.

    Hi Rusty!

    Yes, all the voices are me. To tell you the truth, I have not sung in like a year and this was my first effort. I am still awaiting my studio to be complete...hopefully it will be ready in August.

    Thanks for commenting!

    Wondering if this song is too far out for TGP?

    I am still awaiting major ground issues in my studio to be resolved, or I would put out a GUITAR SOLO.

    August may be promising!! :drool

    Hi Galo! Thank you so much for listening and making a comment! :AOK

    I just noticed that this song has gone to number 3 in world (African!)

    No one has yet rated the tune. Oh well...lol, I guess somebody is digging it.

    I again apologize if anyone was offended by the lyrics...it was meant as a free expression in the music and nothing more.

    I'm not a fan of the type of music (mostly because I'm not versed in it), but the message I totally agree with, from what I heard.

    Hi Strat335!

    Many thank yous for the comment! I do not know how versed I am in any style of music, but I try to be authentic in what I do from the heart and soul.

    what is the signal chain for the vocals? It's very clear and nice.

    Hi,

    You know this was recorded back in 2007 so I can't recall exactly, but the preamp was a Manley 60 db. I would have to guess the microphone was a Shure KSM-32 with no EQ or Compression.

    Thanks for the comment!

    The lyrics are no worse than Marvin Gaye's Mercy Mercy Me IMHO

    This is very kewl....the message is relevant and I like the groove...keep me posted on any future works...
