    Coming For You Now (Run For Your Life)

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello. So here's my latest effort. I haven't had much time for the MP3 clinic lately due to us having had a baby recently. My wonderful (and hot) girlfriend has let me off the lead for a couple of days to try out my new Les Paul and this is the result. I hope you can find it in your hearts to devote three minutes of your time to having a listen and letting me know what you think. I've used the Waves Maserati signature plugs in a few places (these are essentially mix by numbers plugins where you just crank a few dials to process, say, drums or guitars, etc.) and I can't tell if it sounds great or totally smashed.

    Many thanks in advance for your time. I'll paste the lyrics below.

    Coming For You Now (Run For Your Life)
    --------------------------------------

    I'm quicker than a whippet with a rubber band round its balls
    I'm faster than a ferret in a barrel on Niagara Falls
    With hair like a fox and eyes like an owl
    I'm a big sex monkey out on the prowl

    I'm sly like a sinister sideways alligator grin
    If I come round your house you'd better not let me in
    I'll break down your door and climb down your chimney stack
    Deadly as a heart attack

    Chorus
    -------
    I'm coming for you now so you'd better run for your life
    I'm coming for you now so you'd better run for your life
    I'm coming for you now so you'd better run for your life
    I'm coming for you now so you'd better run for your life
    I'm coming for you now I'm coming woah-oh-oh-oh
    I'm coming for you now I'm coming woah-oh-oh-oh


    I'm brave like a great big tiger carrying a gun
    I'm hotter than a billion stars bigger than the sun
    I'm soft like a feather with a shell like an egg
    Like a centipede with a thousand legs

    [Chorus]

    [Chorus]


    Ok, here's a Soundcloud widget thingy - doesn't sound nearly as good, mind: -

    Hi from uk also I love it, I like how cheerful it is considering the subject! I would like to hear more of the guitar, a lot more- I reckon the vocals would blend in a lot better also. Have you double tracked the guitar?

    Hey - thanks spazmo! Yeah, I'd like to hear more of the guitar too! Yep, it's double tracked - I just switched pickup and played it again. Thanks mate!!!

    Oh yeah - I think it's actually a love song, of sorts.

    Spazhands wanted more guitar, I agreed, so the link above is now to a more guitars mix. I'll add a Souncloud widget as well, as soon as their stupid website finishes uploading.

    Haha, very cool. I love the simplistic 3 chordness of it. Fantastic. I also love your very brit voice. I always found it weird when english people would sing and lose all of their britishness.

    The mix - It's fine to me. The drums are pretty robotic, but they're so basic it doesn't even really matter. The bass is a little mushy to me, but not too bad. What amp/sim did you use for the guitars? I love the big reverby pick slide. maybe get a little more clarity and evenness in the vocals, but overall it's good.

    I love it! I really like your tunes and your singing style is great. Mix sounds good (maybe a little more drums) and everything sounds really good.

    I can hear Greg drumming to this and really taking it up a notch.

    Thanks Greg! I made a decision to stop trying to write proper songs and just do stupid stuff like this - it comes much easier to me and you only need three chords at a time.

    The guitars are all my new Les Paul Traditional -> Vox Night Train -> Egnater Tweaker 1x12 Cab -> SM57 -> Interface. There's only a little eq scoop on the rhythms to let the vocal through more, otherwise it's all the amp on the 'Thick' channel setting with varying levels of gain and switching pickup on the guitar. I haven't had time to humanise the drums any, dunno if I'll bother.

    The bass is DI'd into guitar rig, using one bass preset or another tweaked slightly. Ill try and see if I can sort out the mushiness.

    Thanks again, much appreciated!
