Sergei, thanks for the comments, I'm always happy to learn from others. For sure I have lots to learn about recording still, but yes as MrBumble noted these are old recordings. I haven't been up to much playing lately so I decided to go digging through some old files.

Mr Bumble, thanks for listening and for your comments. Don't we all have an album ambition in our soul?? 😃

And thanks Matek. 'Proper songs' 😃 My songwriting focus used to be on the lyrics, and mostly just strumming along. When I started getting interested in becoming a better guitar player I focused less on writing. I'm mostly thinking these days lol, but I think I'm headed back to work on being a songwriter.

And thanks Mike, I'm glad I have someone to play with!

Thanks everybody

Love is Hard
This is a great rocking song - nice work on the drums. Really well sung by your partner. The lyrics are fantastic. I don't think it needed that extra vocal effect during the bridge. Overall I really enjoyed it - a song to dance to. Well done.

Breathless
Another good song Mari - good lyrics, nice work on the guitar and well sung. I liked the guitar transition to the bridge.

Very cool! I don't know how I missed this thread. You guys sound awesome! Totally different vibe from each song, but both are really well written, played and sung. I like both of them.

I enjoyed them both. Reading what the others have said, I would also love a redo just to hear how you would change it up. And the improvements you would make. And of course, for me, for now, acoustic is my preference.

Thanks Pam, I'm glad you enjoyed them. I've been thinking about re-working some other old songs that I don't have recordings of, so eventually these ones too. And some new ones 😃

Hi Mari,
Wow you need to get back into this groove! For sure!
Liked Love is Hard and the vibe you got going there. Very nice sounding and writing indeed.

Breathless - To me your other song is more flowing and has a catchy vibe. Not to say this is not good, just I like the other effort better.

Nice vocal work on both.... Mixing and such could use a bit of work but that was a long time back and things were not as good then equipment/plug wise.

Great job and nice to hear originals coming up in the forum. Do get back into them and crank out the good stuff.

Just heard both the songs. Amazing really! Wonderful vocals and good rhythm guitar playing. And not to forget great songwriting. Like you said just those bends were off but I’m sure you could do it better now. In all I loved them both for being good in their own way.

Thanks LBro. I started out many years ago in my guitar journey wanting to be a songwriter most of all, but these days my first goal is to be a better guitar player. However, improving my guitar skills should also improve my songwriting skills, so that's the plan now. The only one I'm currently working on is not a rocker, but I do have a nice new Gretsch waiting to write one with me! 😃

Thanks Balamuthiah. Yes hopefully I could do better now, on both songs. That's my intent anyway, to get better!!
