    Well....

    I liked it, your voice did justice to the song and not everyone can do that.

    Nothin to laugh at... you lied!

    I think you did great really, doing multiple parts in single takes without editing is a sucker to get right.

    The lyrics to this are ominous and tell a story of a dark past many of us have probably suffered through!
    Thanks for the link .
    Well done.

    I was expecting something along the lines of Roseanne's version of the national anthem, but...you did really good. You deserve a round of applause!

    Seriously, don't short sell yourself.

    Or to the cornfield you go.

    Or the swamp?

    Really makes a person admire the looper pros who make it all look easy.

    That is a hard song to sing if you get into it. I practiced it until I knew it inside out then played it live as a solo act, very similar to your version but with a 335 and a cranked Pro Junior so it was very gritty. I totally lost myself in the darkness of the song. I had to cut the set short because it was so emotional. I’ve been afraid to play it live ever since. Great job on a great song. Well done!

    May I critique a little?
    Being a late bloomer as far as singing, I totally understand what you mean by embarrassment. Being heard while letting an emotion come out of your mouth instead of a guitar was hard. You made the first step towards breaking that barrier, the error you made, was drowning your voice in reverb/echo/other stuffs to the point where you barely recognize your voice and that helped you open up.
    Every single voice effects should be cut to 1/3 or less. Trust me I’ve walked this way.
