Lead Vocals on "Long Long Time"

And to think I almost didn't include this song in the CD!

It's funny.  For a long time (pun intended), all I had for this tune was a really, really bad scratch recording.  Looped drums, sloppy guitars, bad vocals and even problematic lyrics.  I kept debating if it was the right tune.  But the CD needed a blues tune, and it kept haunting me in the back of my mind.  So, I did it anyway.

It strikes me as odd how the last tunes of my CD's always seem to come together.  I put off working on them, because the other songs feel stronger, or more exciting, and I'm not as confident in them.  But as I start to work out the parts and get the tracking polished, these songs grow on me and often become among my personal favorites.

Anyway, I tracked the lead vocals and worked out harmony vocals.  I'm excited by them, and they all get the exact effect I was hearing in my head.  I seriously think, however, that I'm going to have a female singer do them.  They're a bit high for me, and I think it would be "bluesier" if they were done by a girl.

Also, I've been practicing "Tenth and Main" a lot as well.  I'm getting very excited about that one, too.  I want to get this one done before I start tracking it, though.
