Well sports fans, I've never been one to back down from a challenge. I took the advice of those who took the time to provide some constructive criticism, got out the vice grip pliers, took an extra turn or two on my shorts, then changed the drum machine of the style and adjusted the drum volume. Here's the results. I can unequivocally tell you that I was at the very tip-top of my vocal range singing this in "D".

Both were very nice renditions that I'm sure your friend's family enjoyed and appreciated. As far as the drums, I would suggest a rim click or brush pattern to begin (or maybe drums tacet) and then to full snare on the last verse. That would help the song build. Just my 2 cents...
It not the keyboard, it's the keyboardist.

Nice,,,your vocal style reminds me of Eddy Arnold with some John Conlee mixed in.

Hi Gary,

I hope you don't have permanent damage from the "adjustments" any case, this is very nice indeed...perfect key for didn't sound strained on any notes.

Even nicer than the first one, which was already great.

Sounds very pretty and spiritual. I like the snare.

I am also sorry for the loss of your dear friend.

I was happy with the first rendition, but I feel this one blows it totally away!
Incidentally I closed with a gospel song Tuesday night and it got a standing ovation. Of course everyone was gone but a half dozen tables.
Maybe I'll listen to see if the recording was good and post it.
We absolutely can learn from honest criticism, and there is never a need to be rude or caustic about it.
As much as I disagree with my friend Diki's "bedside manner", his critiques of a couple of my songs were right on, and I was happy to learn from it.

Same here, Don. His main criticism of me concerned my lack of use of the mod wheel on sax solos. Of course he's right. No sax player plays all 'straight' tones. I just don't feel it as intuitively as I do when trying to do my 'blues guitar' imitation.

As far as his 'bedside manner', I'm okay with that. Usually it's just a case of him not sugarcoating the truth. In fact, if he were any 'sweeter', I'd question if it was really Diki smile .
