Ran across this tune on a compilation CD a friend sent me a good while back.    Thought it was pretty cool so I did an impromptu, late night recording last night.

Nicely done!  I thought your delivery was well-timed and comfortable -- meaning that it didn't seem rushed or nervous.

Thanks WileE - probably a result of being dead tired when I recorded it!

Maybe I should do that more often.

I think you sound great.  The guitar sounds great and the vocals sound great.  Really quite good.    One comment from an effects perspective.  The vocals have a lot of reverb on them, almost to the point of echoing, which sounds strange to my ear at times compared to the lack of similar reverb on the guitar.  I'm not saying it sounds bad, just a noticeable juxtaposition to me. 

Again, nice work.  What type of recording gear did you use?  I'd like to play around with recording more when I get time (which I think is a decade or two off  )

Thanks Scrambler -

I have a very simple setup - two Blue Encore 300 mics direct into a Tascam DP-01FX.   I did notice the reverb was a little hot on the vocals this time.   I just started using the 300 and haven't quite adjusted everything yet.

Thanks for the kind words

Very nice, Todd.

I'll second the opinion about reducing the reverb. A little goes a long way!

With that said, I enjoyed the tune and your performance.
