It sounds like he recorded it in one take, just him and his guitar in a room with a lot of natural reverb. The guitar work is very good, and it's fortunate, because the instrument seems to have been a little closer to the mic than his vocal chords, with the result that the guitar is mixed out in front of the vocal, which becomes a little hard to make out in spots. The song deals with coping with the emotional wreckage following a broken heart. The vocal is passionately and artfully delivered, but gets a little pitchy at times. All in all, it's good music from a talented singer-songwriter and guitarist.

That's just what Larry Rogers does with his recording of "Rocking in the Sun." I love the tone of his guitar, and his highly competent, but never flashy style of play. As a songwriter, he has something to say, and has the voice to make it go down smooth. A joy to listen to. I'm glad he is investing in his talent.

Pop Rock Genre would also gain you a top positionin the charts. The best part is the gentle guitar, nice riffs. Percussion sets the pace in a way this song makes it a sing along for a rave with friends. So yes it is a great wedding song! I hope it is played often at weddings and gets lots of airplay. This song makes you feel alive and hopeful about love and marriage. I think you won an accolade in heaven for this one too! So keep up the great work and keep the songs coming. Your music lifts the heart and soul so it must be good.
