Hello Peoples! I am working on this track that will eventually have vocals. My last video had a comment about me being a perfectionist and that got me to thinking. My favorite songs are gritty, raw and imperfect. So, I am trying to let it flow a bit and not worry about imperfections. I will likely lose some of the lead guitar parts to make room for vocals. Anyway, any feedback is welcome and appreciated! Thanks.

If this is "rough" then I think rough is great.

Very nice stereo play. Every part sounding great. I like your statement about “perfection”. Nothing I do is perfect. No buffing and brushing in a studio. I play for my soul not for recording contracts.

Out there on the Ocean of love , im sailing to get to shore

waves of love ,wasching over me,  can i  step into your land.

Flowers of  multi colored  , spread a bed to lay me down

guitar honey dripping in my ear, dont need no feedback from my gear

estatic crowds are gazing , treu a tube electric Dream

most likely love ,the way it seems

they are all ready for the close up ,Mr secil B.de Mille.

as the raw sound of song , fades like distant riders

coming closer to the Gate of perfection

anyway ,far a way

as thunder rolls over the hills

from the coming storm

i rest.

Nice one Kevin ,love the Bass !

It’s got a night time in the city vibe. Gritty. The visual looks like city lights through a rainy windshield. It’ll be interesting to hear vocals ...but it’s good just like it is!
