This is a bonus track of sorts for the mock EP It takes a village. I had the verse chord chages around for many years but just until last week the song and lyrics came together really quickly. I thought I heard a band arrangement originally but it seemed more intimate with piano and vocal. This is the most stripped down of any of the songs I have recently done. I put the vocal on it late Sunday evening and found out the glands in my neck were swollen thanks to a bit of a cold going around the house. Using this take anyway. Hope you enjoy.

Wonderful. Adding more instruments can’t make this any better. It’s perfect as it stands.

I,ve said it before, I could no more sing this well as I could fly. Great vocal,
liked the song writer phrasing.

This song is so nice. Very appropriate arrangement me thinks.

Agreed, this approach can be intimidating but if a song “stands up” to “stripped down” you probably got something and this song is proof of that. Thanks James.

FYI, there is a glitch in the number of listens on this track. The other day 70+ listens popped up from in one day from another alonetoner. Has this happened to anyone else? Strange.

Guitar piano? Holy Wow. Nice vocal.

great voice, vox, didn’t remember that from prior listens. Terrific.

I couldn’t listen to it the whole way through, something tells me it’s so beautiful it could make me weep a bit, and when I’m in the mood for that, it will be a great release. Really beautiful!

Woo! Something different. Yep, stripped down works… Like this one a lot.

I suspect that you have the same problems that I do with “stripped down” lol (I’m sat on something that’s probably “done” - actually Mrs Russe sez it is - but it feels scarily naked to me!)

And that guitar midi controller does the job. Now you’ve said it, I can hear some “guitar thinking”, but I wouldn’t have questioned it at all if I hadn’t known. Mebbe I’ve got to get me one…

Well done.

@Tess,
Its played using a YouRock guitar midi controller. I play it fingerstyle for the most accurate piano affect. It does the trick. I am using a vsti called PianoOne which is sounds most realistic for a free plugin.

You’re playing these keys? Love it!

Very intimate - lovely autumnal theme. Always enjoy your stuff, James. Very beautiful, tender composition.
