Hey John D - I’m with Robert…thanks a bunch for the support and the kind words - it really does mean a lot to everybody that was involved in this one, especially to the folks over on the production side.  I hope that things are going well for you over on your side of the screen…we’re experiencing some lower temps up here on the mountain - it’s almost down-right cold outside lol Hang tight and have a good weekend, man.

But do you know what guys? Just to come back to this chart positions stuff. Robert always says: “Hey, I am not a singer, I donīt wonna sing” ... but the 2 Songs with the highest Chart Positions are songs he sung ;-)..maybe the people wonna hear this!

...every once in a while, I get in the mood or so…and start to play..

Hey Martin,
you are right that I did sing those two songs myself. But the many clicks were probably due to my bad singing. In a German homerecording forum I got devastating critiques regarding my vocals. I think it is more like “Hey these vocals are so bad you just have to listen to this.” And everyone clicked on those songs. But I really don’t know. I wouldn’t give those SoundClick rankings too much thought. Anyway, thanks for the positive comments. It would be great if your assumption is correct.

Robert

Hi Bernd,
yes, that’s me on the piano. I recorded it live - no midi programming. I’ve been getting some very positive comments about the way I played the piano on this song. Mitch Hutchings played the e-guitar and Donovan Plant the acoustic guitar. I know you’re not a fan of this kind of music therefore I’m very glad you gave it a listen.

Btw, I just posted a new rock song called “Confession” here. That one is probably more your cup of tea. Thanks for the feedback. I always appreciate it.

Take care
Robert

Would you believe it?  It’s Christmas Eve, 11:20 p.m….and as of about 5 minutes ago, there’s snowflakes on the mountain :-)  First snow of the year, too.  It’s coming down nice and thick - if it keeps up the way it’s going, we just might have to shoot us a video in the morning…  Merry Christmas everyone!

Music’s great—vocalist needs to break out of the comfort zone and FEEL this…and throw some EMOTION into it. I hear so much more potential in this than was recorded. Kudos on the musicianship.

All My Best
Merry Christmas To All

Much obliged, my friend - thank you very much.  This grew into a global project involving some very, very talented people on at lease two continents…it was a very enjoyable project and I was most privileged indeed to have been able to be involved in it :-)
