    rough draft,...rock

    Sign in to disable this ad
    This is a tune I'm working on. The way I write is,..I'll get some drums and guitar going,..then I'll sing (well attempt to anyway) some random thoughts and sounds,..just whatever comes to mind. Then I'll go back and write some lyrics to what it sounds like I was saying,..and adjust the music a bit and record the final tracks. It's been working out pretty good for me.
    Anyway,..give it a listen. I havent written the lyrics for this yet but i got some good ideas and think it might turn out ok.

    Anything ya wanna say helps.

    take 'er easy,...

    Cool man, nice crunching riff moving the song along. Good guitar sounds. The vox are kinda hard to hear and understand. Maybe some more volume or seperation on those. Vox give me a little bit of radiohead vide. Maybe a little high end heavy overall too. Song rocks though, cool

    Thanks for the replies guys. I agree theres too much verb. When i record the final takes of this I'll back off on it some. I dont like my vox and always tend to bury them with reverb and the like.

    Like I said though theres really no lyrics to speak of,..I was just saying whatever came to mind. Most of the vox arent even real words,..just random consonant and vowel sounds.

    By the way,... anyone want to write lyrics to this? Would be kinda fun to see what people come up with. Usually when I do this I mix the vox extremely low so I can just barely here them and write whatever it sounds like and try to make it into a story that fits the mood of the tune. These are a little too loud but it can still work.

    Anyway if anyone wants to write some that would be pretty cool.

    Take 'er easy,..

    Interesting method of songwriting, I must say. Very unique.

    I think it's a pretty cool tune. I have quite a bit of music similar to this....with the drowned out vocals, and more of a percussive sound. Really cool stuff. Nice riffs. they interact with the drums well. Very nice vibe to the song. I might have a stab at some lyrics...I've got some lines I keep crossing out of what I am currently working on, and a few seem to fit already, so I might have something.

    Cool tune man...I enjoyed it.

    I'm goin' on a mini-vacation for the 4th but i'll try to check this thread out over the next few days to see if your done. Take your time.

    I've written some lyrics for it as well,..since i posted this tune. Maybe the two can merge or maybe yours will fit better.
    If I can,..I'll post the ones I wrote for it over the weekend.

    Thanks again for spending some time on it. Anyone else is free to put their ideas in as well.

    Take 'er easy,..
