This is a remix and more.

 

I enhanced the opening vocal. I fooled with the tonality of the rhythm guitar and leads, added some more leads to the third verse and transition, and warmed up the organ a tad. Also there was an occasional clicking sound popping up now and again on the acoustic guitar track. I got rid of that. Finally I reduced the over-all sharpness of the track.

 

Sounds much better now!

This song covers and combines two traditional folk tunes. Of course, I try to rock them up a bit!

 

The first is a 300 year-old English anti-war song called “The Lowlands Of Holland,” which is about an early and rather brutal form of the draft, wherein what were called “Press gangs” would burst into a married couples bedroom on their wedding night and cart the poor groom off to war.

 

Tacked onto this is an old Irish hornpipe melody played as a guitar lead. It felt like a good way to close out the piece.

 

Hope you like it!

  1. Attention to detail? Say it isn’t so! How could you do such things when it is far more accepted to just post a quick take on some idea and include the usual excuses in the description? I mean, we have standards ya know…
