I recorded this a few weeks ago. I took some shortcuts I shouldn't of, but I learned and I think the next time I record it will turn out better. Anyways, tell me what you think, suggestions etc. I think most of my friends don't like the song.

P.S. The harmonica belonged to the man I'm singing about.

the singing is ok. the harmonica is ok. the guitar is ok. the verse is fine.
you have everything going .
what sticks out and bothers me is the cadence.
the vocal and guitar come in alignment so often the song develops a plodding beat.
to avoid that try having the the voice flow through the count so you don't start each word with a 2 and a 4 count. or 1 and 3. whichever. vary things both rhythmically and vocally.

i have to echo Randy, Probably be much better if you did all the parts without the short cuts. Just keep it simple and play the parts yourself :D But it was a nice tune 8)

Thanks, that sounds like it might be a challenge for me, but I`ll work on it. I`d like to say that some of my other songs are not like that, but they probably are but I think they don`t take as big of a hit from it as this one does.

I`m not quite sure what you mean :?
