Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

This years first song, been away on vacation and got some mixing work I had to prioritize instead of making my own music Sad

Recorded this quite quickly while waiting for some response on the last of the mixes I've been working on, I would have liked to add the acoustic guitar with a microphone had to settle for a DI signal since the studio under me is doing some carpentry today.
A bit more open calendar the rest of the week so hope to find time for more songs

Used @metalfoot's fake it challenge as a starting point, but had to use a capo (3) to make the vocal melody a bit more friendly for my vocal range

Sigma Hummingbird acoustic guitar
Yamaha SA50T electric guitar
Oslo Instrumentfabrikk P Bass
Arturia Analog Lab 4 for Wurlitzer & Mellotron

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

That's GREAT. Very Cat Stevens feel to it (and capoing a song is certainly within the spirit of the challenge; it retains the chord progression/feel, just changes key).

I love what you did with the chorus, especially. Thanks for playing!

Really good. I like the vocal jump up on 'Your love' The electric guitar parts are very good indeed, they add a lot in a subtle way.

That has a very am radio feel to it. Quite a contrast from my take on it. Those electric guitar tones are delicious.

Guitar work/mix on this is lovely! bass sits really nice! sounds great in the headphones Wink The plunks in that bridge an excellent touch!

Really nice song! Everything sounds so great, vocals are fantastic and guitars are wonderful. The pick up for the outro is especially remarkable!

Gorgeous sound, I often find DI acoustic guitar can ruin a mix but it works pretty well here as a counterpoint to the rich electric guitar tone. Your voice sounds great on this one, really strong melody and performance.

Lovely blend of vocals and music. Gentle yet effective, like the electric guitar here. Nice listen!

The guitar is so lush! The doubled vocals are very effective. Overall great sound.

I love this so much! Your vocal performance is fantastic, the melody you've come up with is so catchy, and the instrumentation all comes together to create a sweet and soothing soundscape. An excellent take on the challenge!
