    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi, and thank you for reading my post

    Hi. I've been using the Easter holidays to relax, review some music here and record a new song. It's an R.E.M. / Beatles sounding thing, about lost love...

    Have been trying to learn from advice on earlier songs submitted, listening to you out there and reading comments here and on the cakewalk forums homepage(are posting there as well.)
    Looking forward to getting your advice, comments and criticism on anything you can think of concerning this song.

    Fine by me if you speak your mind and come with your honest, subjective opinion, I can take it, I learn more from advice and criticism!


    R2OS - Teardrop

    128 kbps streaming Song: Teardrop

    320 kbpsdownload (not soundclick)

    All music is recorded as audio, drums are loops/samples. All instruments played by me.
    I have no bass guitar yet; so the bass is a guitar transposed on octave down, have to get one!
    The guitars are tuned in C6 and the acoustic have a capo on 6th.
    Planning to by the CME UF8 CME UF8 keyboard with firewire to be able to work more freely with sounds and spices for the song.

    I've always thought it a good thing to pass on some additional info on the recording, lyrics, influences and so on, so:

    BPM: 109
    Genre: Alternative pop/rock
    Influences on this song: XTC, R.E.M, Chris Isaak, Grant Lee Buffalo
    Length: 3:21
    BPM: 109

    Lyrics:

    R2OS Teardrop 2005

    1) Save;
    your lies
    your ways

    2) come what may
    come what may

    Chorus:
    This is what it does
    What was your cause?

    Teardrop
    Teardrop
    Watering eyes
    Watering eyes

    3) Save:
    your life
    today

    4) go away
    go away

    Chorus 2)
    Say:
    You waste your time
    Say:
    You waste mine

    Teardrop
    Teardrop

    i'm really suprised at the sound of the "bass" it dosn't sound nearly as bad as i thought it would. really, i'm suprised.

    first, cut the air closer to the guitars (in the intro), it sounds strange coming in all at random times.

    i'd turn the rythem gits down a little and the lead up (a little)

    i think git 4 in the verry end is not needed, kinda cluttered

    is thare a REALLY hi hi freq boost on the guitars???
    or something else

    i dont really pay a lot of attention to lyrics (why i don't write often)
    just to how they sit

    is ok, not my type of thing but it sounds like the b-side of a very good album

    very indicitive of whats been happening in europe the last few years

    i'm being super critical though

    Thanks, this is really helpfull...
    (how do I "cut the air" closer to the guitar"?

    "[I]is thare a REALLY hi hi freq boost on the guitars" Ehh, no eq used on the rhythm guitar. Used a mic., then through my compression, through my mixer and and in the computer...

    "i think git 4 in the verry end is not needed, kinda cluttered" I'll try without it.


    "i'd turn the rythem gits down a little and the lead up (a little)" Ok, thanks

    Good luck with your music as well.

    Regards

    I can tell you can sing and have a good sense of melody, but that recording is really really really difficult to listen to. The fingernoise and picknoise from the guitars is making me blink violently, and the whole mix sounds like you ran it through some kind of...ummm...fuck, I dunno'..."sandpaper" plugin?

    And if you're going to use drum loops, why would you use loops that sound like they came from a drum machine?

    Youch. It hurts, it hurts, which sucks, b/c I can hear a cool song and some great performances in there...somewhere in there...behind all the distortion and grainyness...

    Ha ha.

    Thanks for the honest comments. I'll work on it. Planning to get a keyboard, and hope that will enable me to make my own drum loops.
