My aunt gifted me a 12 string guitar for Christmas and so I had fun trying it out for this song; I’m glad it turned out okay. As always, thanks for listening and for the encouraging words, Steve!

I’m glad to hear that what I recorded turned out sounding authentic. That “heart on my sleeve” vibe was definitely what I was going for. Thanks for the kind words, Steve!

Thanks for listening and for the support, Steve! The simultaneous fingerpicking and singing was hard to get down perfectly, so I’m glad it turned out okay.

Took me about a decade of singing alone in my bedroom before I was brave enough to record anything! I’m glad it sometimes sounds good enough to listen to. Thanks for your kind feedback, Steve!

The reverb I get in my apt definitely added a nice flavor to this song. I’ve been playing this tune in one form or another for at least 15 years, so I thought it’d be cool to record it in the new place to see how it sounds in novel surroundings. As always, thanks for the support and kind feedback, Steve!

Atmospheric sound and great vocals Tom! The chord syncing sounds difficult but you made an excellent job of it. Great job!

Nice song, new to me. Like the live sound and fretboard squeaks, creates a mood and an atmosphere. Great vocals! The chord syncing sounds tricky, but you’ve made a very special performance here Tom. Excellent!

Very nicely done. Great energy in that music.

I definitely tried to go for a natural approach and that has its pros and cons. There are a few word salads in this song that I stumbled through but at least it’s authentic and authenticity was key with this one. Thanks, as always, for listening and providing the kind feedback, Steve!

Nice song, Natural and stripped back, it’s very well performed Tom.

Thanks, as always for listening and for the kind feedback, Steve! It’s kind of scary to strip everything away and really expose one’s voice and playing. So it’s kind of a relief that what I did here still turned out sounding okay.

Cool. You can perform very well without a bag of tricks Tom, and I think that’s proper talent. Excellent!

Live and natural sounds. Great singing with some very high notes in there. Well done!

Thanks, Steve! I tried to go real lo fi on this one – no overdubs. I figured I was due for some optimism in my song choices after recording all of Beck’s Sea Change.

Like it. Nice and clear sound and a charming view of the future!

Another good choice.

I felt downright awful as I was recording this song, “Already Dead,” and “Side of the Road,” so maybe my state of mind and body at the time added an additional charge to these songs? Either way, I’m glad you enjoyed them and I appreciate your ongoing encouragement, Steve!
