New song...

I watched a film the other day (I think it was "Looper" with Bruce Willis), and I felt a need to write a song about all the gray haired action heroes who are still with us.
I wanted this song to sound like Richard and Linda Thompson around 1978, but I don´t think I did a very good job at that...

Great stuff M@rkus!

The only change I would make is to bring up the vocal's a bit.. sometimes they are a little overshadowed by that great chunky guitar :D
Keep on trackin'

Thank you, both freightgod and trevlyns! Much appreciated :D And yes trevlyns, you are right! I had some problems with controlling "the great chunky guitar". I used two compressors, but still it´s like a wild bull...
