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!
