It's about time I wrapped this one up… after much deliberation, I decided that the ‘Lost’ piano piece really did belong with the fuller ‘Hope & Longing’ recording as there are common roots.
Needed to spend some time tuning the limited vocals - I always thought I had to write fuller lyrics but actually, the sentiment at the time of writing needs to be left alone, preserved or risk losing its meaning and feeling
Then some re-mixing - trying to remember everything I learnt on the course.
The only question remaining - guitar solo or not ? certainly not happy with the temporary one I put down originally, so here's a version without whilst I work on a new solo. But if nothing good comes to light, I'll keep it like this…
Take a listen here and let me know if I really need that solo through the outro keyboard section
