Hope to Hold Onto

Thinking about taking this one back into the studio replacing my vox with a female singer and adding an instrumental solo section as well. Also backing off on the tele-twang and replacing it with a pedal steel and maybe a fiddle. Anyway, thoughts are welcome as this one is about to get a studio rework……..

I don’t know if you really need a female singer. It could go either way. A steel would give you more of a classic country sound. Becareful about adding a intrumental solo, your already at 3:37. Trust me, alot of the lables don’t like to see songs go longer than 4 minutes. Hope this helped some.

I like it. It feels honest. I like the idea of a female voice best of the things you suggested changing. I think it wouldn’t be a bad idea to up the tempo just a little. It’s slow to develop. That might help. I kinda feel like lyrically you could give a little more of the guts of the story. The listener may not get exactly where you’re coming from. Good stuff though.

If you replaced with a female I would definitely change the key. Probably would do justice to drop the key a little and just sing it yourself.I think that it would make it a little more country blues. I think its a good song. A little tweak here and there, as you already know. The acoustic sounds great with the rhythm of the song. Would be easy to do this one up!
Great job!
