    A "Pro-war" but "Anti-Bush" Song

    yes, such a viewpoint is possible. This song is about how the actions of the USA, while motivated by non-humanitarian factors, ultimately will help the people of Iraq.

    This is my first attempt at recording a song on my tascam 4 track with
    more than just acoustic guitar and vocals. There's a vocal, acoustic, electric
    and bass tracks on there. Let me know what you think. I don't think I'll
    be able to get tracks much better quality than this one due to the limitations
    of the 4 track. An SM-58 was used for the vocals & acoustic. The electric was
    direct input through a Zoom 505 (my amp is being repaired) and the bass was direct
    input too.

    Don't like it lyrics. Don't agree with the politics. Don't care for the song in general.

    The only group I've ever heard successfully sing about politics is Pink Floyd.

    This board is about mixing...

    I don't think I'll be able to get tracks much better quality than this one due to the limitations
    of the 4 track.
    Could you perhaps give me a reason why I should give you tips then? If you're not able to do anything with them, I rather spend my time on someone who can...

    Not trying to scare you away, but the idea is to post mixes, get responses, learn how to do things, and then post remixes

    (yeah, I know...my first post around here was a 'finished product' post too....but I've learned a lot since)

    sorry if my post came across in the wrong way.

    i am looking for constructive criticism/ways to improve the song but I only mentioned the 4-track limitation thing because there's only so far you can go with it as compared so some of the set-ups people on here have.

    i want to make it as good as possible given that i'm using a cassette 4-track - any help is very welcome...

    ahh.. dude im sorry. This is just begging not to be heard. I hate politics in music eeeeeecch!!! Fucking rageagainstthemachine went all downhill once Zach started thinking he was Shinaed o''Conner.

    This approach is going to turn off people who don't like political music, Republicans, and other Bush supporters. The marketing people at your label must already be seething because you've just narrowed down your target audience to the size of viewership for "Life With Jim".

    I wish i could force myself to listen but i can't. sorry. i'd rather go to the dentist.


    If you need a new best friend make sure BDGR sees this. He will love you, trust me. I'd tell him myself but he ignores (absorbs and savours everything I post with a delicious zeal, wistfully salivating over my judicious and tasteful and hopelessly out of reach bon-mots) me.

    I didnt listen to the song but thought I would give my opinion as well.
    And i will bring up the group the Dixie chicks on this one.
    To me if I was to go to a concert of anyone and pay out my 45
    bucks or so and had them stand up on stage and give me their
    bullshit political views weather be Democrat or republican or what ever they are I want my money back.
    Why do so many artists think that when they go on stage to do a
    job or an interview that they have to give us that crap.

    Why do they take the risk of pissing off about half of the people
    that are there to see them and put money in their pockets?

    Oh well im through now.

    The only band that managed to mix politics and music succesfully was The Soggy Bottom Boys. Man i love those guys.

    Whatever guys...

    I don't find anything to really sink my teeth into in this song. The bass is really too loud or boomy. I like the sound of 4 track cassette. The politcs are really not very defined, it seems more like a few cliche type ideas strung together, there's no real point musicaly for the message to come across.


    Good recording, sounds like fun. You have a good voice and the playing is nice, keep 'em comin'.
