Recorded this the other day. I'm a guitar and all around music noob, so forgive the bland playing and all-around uninspired vocals. Any distortions are because I used an incredibly shitty microphone to record this (a headset that I actually WORE and bent over to get close to the guitar's sound hole in order to hear the playing while I sang) and so had to use Audacity's noise removal tool to get rid of the noise.

Anyway, I'm probably going to be doing songs like these as fast as I can learn 'em and upload 'em. As I progress eventually I'll be taking these early versions down because after enough listening I find I'm embarrassed by my attempts. Eventually, you can all hope for something of quality.

Evark responds:

Thanks for listening!

Not bad

Should have done some additional editing in audacity though.

lol @ "guitar's sound hole"

I'm not a fan of country, at all. But I enjoyed this version.

Evark responds:

Glad you liked it.


ok, ok. Not to bad. you still need some more practice though. You also studered a bit around 1:58-ish.

Evark responds:

Quite late, but thanks for the feedback.

You have a good voice.

But not for this kind of country but it could be good for country.

I live in texas and all my my cousins and family listen to is country including my friends so I know what I'm talking about.

I reccommend you sing like Country pop. May not be your kind of style but you would sound your best in that type I think. But hey to each man his own Taste just my opinion.

Other then that Guitar's not that bad but I never was a fan of to repetitive stuff. Good voice need to work on your higher pitches like on the part in the song 1:22-1:25 just pratice on that and a little higher you could get it. 5/10

Evark responds:

You're right. I don't really like Country that much... mostly 'cause as a yank from Boston's North Shore I just can't relate to most of it. I like this song for it's folksy feel. I could easy 'suthernize' my singing more for this song... but I wanted to make it more of MY version than anything else, y'know?

And yea, my falsetto's been a work in progress for years and years. Some days I can hit those perfectly, others not so much.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback!
