    Wrote and recorded this song a couple of days ago. Still just an acoustic demo. Go to www.garageband.com/artist/hail and download "Call It a Lie". Please post all comments in this thread.

    Cheers,
    Neill

    heya fellow strat user- good song, it's kind of a bare bones production, so there's not much i can offer in the way of a critique. A few thoughts though- it was kind of long-if you cut down the intro and the between verses stuff you could economize it a bit without losing the feel of the song. As far as the recording (since that is the purpose of the clinic)-sounded like there was an audible hiss through the entire song-almost like it was recorded on a cassete 4 track. I'm listening in a bad environment so it may be on my end but i don't think so...The performance was good all around, the singing and playing were definetely adequete-there's a lot of room for production ideas-musical hooks, use of dynamics etc. I'd like to hear this as a more finished product(unless this is the final destination for this)-in which case it stands pretty good on its own.

    I sure would like to listen to this..but I hate garageband, LOL they have a "special' going on now 19.99 for a freakin review of your bands tune. Try somethin like nowhere radio.com, its free. You have to have realplayer to stream it also on g/b and that sucks on its on too.

    I recorded it with one mic running through a mixer into my computer. The hissing sound in the background believe it or not is the sound of insects outside, if you listen carefully it might make more sense. Like I said the songs only about 48 hrs old so an electric, hopefully full band, version will be made but I wanted some feedback on the roots of the song first.

    Try downloading the mp3 instead of streaming the song in realplayer.

    Question Sorry, but.....

    I don't see a download for "Call It A Lie"

    I found one for "Letting It Go".

    Is it just me or does the navigation on that site suck?

    Lightbulb Ah, there it is!

    At least their server is fast. 80Kps

    That hissing is a bit distracting. Reminds me of some of my old 2-track cassette stuff!

    I think you've got the foundation for a good song here. The performance is pretty good, though I think you need to relax a bit more when you sing. The vocal seems a bit "forced" at times.

    Definately post back with an update. I'd like to hear this with the "full treatment".
