So, I just uploaded this song to Soundclick yesterday, and today it is already "charting" at #70 in their "Pop" Category. I didn't even do anything to make this happen, it just came up.

So, I am posting the link here to see what happens - I don't want to ask you to pump it up for me, but it is a pretty good song.
I work on Protools, was a pro recording engineer for 10 years in analog. I play compose, perform record and mix everything in my recordings.

This is exactly what I always say.
I donít write for the praise or the applause (or the rating for that matter) but it is a nice idea that some people listen.
A rewarding idea.
And I am going to hit the button as soon as I posted this @MotterPaul
Kind regards, Gus

Hey @MotterPaul ......this song is charting because it's THAT good. There is a ton of ear candy here......from that moving beat to those crisp guitar tones and all those cool instrumental harmonies.

That breakdown and change of pace at 1:30 definitely adds to the mix of really good ingredients. Then when you shift into overdrive at 3:00.....yeah.

I'm on my second listen.

This one will got to #1.

Thank you so much, I have always thought it was a good song - and it was the kind that just came to me in a spurt of creativity. Once I had the first chords down the rest just wrote itself. The main chord change is:

|----5-------3------1-----3------------
|----5-------0------1-----3-----------
|----7-------0------2-----5-----------
|----7-------0------3-----5-----------
|----5-------2------1-----3-----------
|-------------3------1-----x---------

Dsus2, G, F/Bb, Csus2
Dsus2, G, F/Bb, Fsus2

then the bridge modulates to Em, but ends on a bVIsus (Bbsus4) chord, as the dominant substitution chord before going back to D-Major.

The big 3 voice arpeggio at the end is a D9 chord in 3-part harmony (bass, 2 guitars)

I appreciate you giving it a close listen because nothing makes me love music more than working on intricate parts. I strive for a clean sound with challenging but not-overly complicated music. I like it to be pleasing to the ear (or exciting) and change colors so it is not too tedious or predictable.

We did it - thank you all for your support.

Flying is #1 "with a bullet" - it made #1 in just four days.
I don't even know if this means much, but it feels pretty good :beer
