WOW!!!!

Man this is sounding good - its an awesome advert for GMC, it should get top billing on the front page, especially since it is all about the members driving a really awesome song.

Marcus, you are doing an amazing job of mixing this, really awesome, it sounds just incredible!

I'm glad you like it, Iluha! smile.gif

But it's not not quite finished yet. We still need those real drums, and bass. And I'd like some more guys to sing in the chorus smile.gif
I would also like to discuss the structure of the song. For example: Should we have that 2:nd chorus twice as long as the first chorus (as it is now). etc...

Any ideas are welcome!

Are you thinking of harmony vocals in the chorus or just double up on the existing ones?

At first I was just thinking about double up the existing vocals, but now that you mentioned it I think it'll sound cool to also add some harmonies to it.

Do you want to give it a shot? smile.gif

Marcus,

I was thinking a couple of things about the song. One is that I think the 2nd chorus should be the same length as the first. Another thing is that we don't mention GMC anywhere in the song. I think that would be good to do because it then "completes" the story.

I don't want to suggest that we make the song any longer by adding another verse, however it might be something to think about in the event that someone unfamiliar with GMC listens to it and wonders what the song is all about. We might be able to squeeze it in if we shorten the second chorus, so I wrote another verse for you guys to decide:

Verse

Turn it up and turn em on

We're rocking the place from dusk to dawn

If you got what it takes, we got what you need

Don't wait for tomorrow, come to GMC!



Something like that. Obviously, anyone feel free to add or change or even throw this idea away.

I just realised there is a chance I might my be able to do a "high scream version" of the chorus - in best cases that could sound like a cross-over between Axl Rose and a mouse. On the other hand with Marcus mixing ability he could make it sound like Lemmy...! blink.gif biggrin.gif

Either way, these recordings could be used as backing (octave higher harmony) or maybe as the main vocal in a final chorus or similar.

I might give it a shot unless I blow my voice first.

Kris, I have to say - you sounded pretty uncomfortable / strained singing like this tongue.gif One particular thing I noticed was when you sing "control" as in "out of control" you kind of say contr-hole (which is fine, kind of an axl thing such as knock knock knockin on heavens do~owor, hey, hey, hey hey yeah tongue.gif) so thats fine but it really kicks in and sounds bad on the second syllable as you seem to strain yourself on the contr-hole part it seems, maybe try extending it like so: "controooo-ol where the -ol is where you do a short raise in pitch or whatever. I'm not a singer!

Anyway, just some thoughts.

This looks great! I'm sure we can squeeze in another verse smile.gif

Kris, do you want/have time to record another verse with these lyrics?


Here's the updated song, including Kris's "high scream chorus" (sounds awesome, btw biggrin.gif ) and also Ballistic's bass! smile.gif

Attached File  collab_v11.mp3 ( 4.25MB ) Number of downloads: 205

Let me know what you think!
If we should add that new verse - where should we put it? All ideas are welcome! smile.gif

Great, just great! especially love Kris's new version of the chorus, sound just awesome, and Andrew's fade out solo is really breathtaking and leaves you wanting for more!
