My Yearning Mind (Second Version)
Nicely simple and nicely plucked...(bit like old self :) Real folky tune. ah come on now Mr S....no cheating with that auto-tune...it what all them stupid girlies need. ha k
Nicely performed and sung, laid back and stripped back to basics. A timeless
song, with the ability to take you places.
HI Rich and David, Thank you for the encouraging words, its nice to receive them! In the creation of this song I actually (gulp) considered....vocal Auto-Tune!
A lovely song is always worth sing over and over. Love both versions.
You've tried a lot of vehicles to convey this message, messages like this....I like this one! Guitar sitting nicely in the mix, am I hearing a cricket back there? Vocal sounds very comfortable, you're in your element Andrew.
I have been recording since the late 1980's, really starting for me when I bought a Tascam "Porta-One" 4-track deck in 1988. Sinse then I recorded onto 4-track reel to reel, and often used an old Atari ST computer, running Cabase (0.1) to make backing tracks for various songs and ideas.
It wasn't until about 1998, when my father bought a "Bondi-Blue" iMac, that I first began to record, directly to hard disc, and in some ways I do prefer the sound of an all analog set up, but things move on, and I feel overall that this is a better way for editing and also creatively!
Musically I am basically experimental in my approach, I start each new thing as fresh, and many times I don't finish what I started, so I've got many tracks unfinished, I see this as part of the process, because I often come back to these "fragments" later!
At the moment I am using an iMac (27 Inch) and its has been really great, but I have been recording using the Tracktion 7 DAW, which has been ok, still some bugs with it though, overall it has been a slow learning curve, and I am learning with each new recording!
