Default Original song Turn Out In The Wind

Been quite a while since I have posted here on Show and Tell
This song has been a very long time coming. It was literally the first song I ever wrote, going on 20 years ago.
It has evolved some into this version, and was just last week recorded on my new system. It's the second slideshow type video I have done, and the first with scrolling lyrics

Turn Out In The Wind----- all original, lyrics , music, photos, and brief video clip ,,,,,
At the risk of self promo best with headphones and viewed full screen for visual effect.

Hey thanks Danno maybe I should do a cover of Riders on the Storm ?

Interestingly the reverb Effect is the Bricasti pre set emulation of the "Sunset Studio Chamber" which Morrison used on a number of songs.... If I remember correctly the entire Dubut album was recorded at Sunset Studios

Don't know how much interest in production method but thought I would add this. little summery

Guitar (both rhythm and lead ) were a Taylor 810 ce mic'ed with spaced pair of AEA N 22 ribbon mics
Vocal mic was an ADK Z Mod 251



Here are the Mixer and Edit windows for the song

Hey Kevin,

That was fun. As I watched, I could help thinking, 20 years later, how do you view the nostalgic life learnings in the lyrics? I also suspect your voice has grown into the song since you first played it.

Oddly enough, I recently re-recorded the first real song I ever wrote and while production values have improved, the vocals for me got worse. But I like the worldly voice you brought in this take of your tune.

Thanks for sharing.

Dave

Thanks for the kind words Dave

Good questions , overall 20 years on I think the lyrics have even more meaning.
I guess like most with say 4 or more decades of life, the song reflects those moments we might stop and ponder the consequences of our actions.

And for example what may have even seemed at the time trivial decisions (turn left and go here, instead of right and go there) but end up having significant impact .

My voice ? Humm ? I feel fortunate that I am guessing I still have 85%-90% of my tone. I think in terms of emoting feeling may even have a bit more wisdom to draw on ??? Or maybe my memory is simply not as good
