EDIT: Already did a quick sketch, now looking for a singer:

https://soundcloud.com/benjamin-storm-linnebjerg/tightropes-very-raw-with-midi-vocal-melody

It's a cheese fest kinda song, so be warned! Here are the lyrics:

I am walking on tightropes high in the sky
Afraid to fall yet I delicately tread along
And should I ever lose hope I will carry on
Cause there's just a fine line between triumph and failure

But if I keep my head up
And walk with pride in my stride
If I don't ever give up
I'll find the place for you and I

So if they've broken down my stronghold
Together we'll rebuild anew
I'll wipe the tears from my eyes
And turn to face another day

We're all walking on tightropes high in the sky
Afraid to fall yet we delicately tread along
And should you ever lose hope just you carry on
Cause there's just a fine line between triumph and failure

But if you keep your head up
and walk with pride in your stride
If you don't ever give up
Then you'll find the place for you and I

But if they've broken down your stronghold
Together we'll rebuild anew
Just wipe the tears from your eyes
And turn to face another day

[Guitar Solo]

So if you count all your days and memories
that add up to make you who you are
Then don't dismiss the time you've spent in sorrow
The time in grief or in regret
Cause if you learn from all of your mistakes
Then they will add to make you whole
A whole that's greater than the sum of all it's parts
Now all you've lived through makes you who you are

So if they've broken down our stronghold
Together we'll rebuild anew
We'll wipe the tears from our eyes
And turn to face another day

If we keep our heads up
and walk with pride in our stride
If we don't ever give up
We'll find the place for you and I

----------------------

This is a bit out of my style, but still prog-metal'ish. A ballad, it is, even.

However I'm not even sure if I want to record it, first off because I can't reach the higher notes myself on the vocal lines, and the lyrics are perhaps so and so.

If you (anyone on here!) could spare some input on this GP5 file, it would be awesome. Both on the music and lyrics. smile.gif

Also, better to listen with Midi than with RSE, which is a mess biggrin.gif

Can someone pull off a high C, as in the end, or know someone willing to give the vocal line a shot? smile.gif

Sorry to be upping my own thread.

Very cool stuff wink.gif There are wads of places online that you can go and find folks to volunteer to sing on your stuff if you can't find someone here. Of course, it's a bit of leg work so there's that smile.gif Always easier just to do the music which is why so many tracks end up with no vocals. Vocals are just tough as good vocalist are just sorta hard to find. I hope you find a good one as the last one I found just sorta quit singing sad.gif

Here are a couple of sites to get you started.

Here is a great article that talks about many such sites in depth.

Thanks, Todd. I'll check it out.

Meanwhile here's a version with a midi vocal melody line:

I was actually trying to listen for vocal smile.gif That's probably where it went wrong. You can just use a guitar for a melody line. Simple, easy smile.gif

Hi Cael! That's a GREAT composition! I have a nice feeling of this one. Your work on meters and chord progression, as well as the overall arrangement is very interesting. I also have some weird feeling with that midi for the vocals, it really distracts me and takes me out of the song's vibe. I think that some real vocals, or maybe a melody done with your guitar would make more justice for the track and will let us enjoy more and focus on the song itself.

It will have real vocals when my friend feels well again. Apparently she got sick, but hopefully she's better soon smile.gif

So my friend got a concussion apparently and she's probably not capable of doing vocals for a while, so I'm still looking for a singer.

My range is very limited, and I'm not good with clean vocals unfortunately. There's a high C in the bridge, which I even in my wildest dreams wouldn't be able to reach smile.gif
