I think you did an excellent job!!, I admit that when I thought of that melody I was thinking more of bass vocals in the style of Zakk Wylde, but after hearing you that works awesome as well smile.gif

Lol maybe if you got it a bit more in sync with the music, I love the ending though with the "I just don't know what to sayyy(Fade out)"

Yeah, I was struggling to get the middle lines of the verse into the rythm space allocated, thats why the first and the last bits appear to be right but the middle sections a bit shakey, I'ma working on it. tongue.gif

Edit: I'm also pretty rubbish at mixing, so it's just straight down the middle, which perhaps isnt the best place to position it.

That's great! But yes, it's a bit out of sync there smile.gif Could you do another take and use less of that effect? Also, I'm having trouble hearing all the words. Could you post the lyrics here?

Great job, Owen! smile.gif

Yeah, I was also thinking more of bass vocals, but the sound of the words seems to fit just prefect. Kris said he will consider doing the vocals (if he can find the time for it), and maybe he can put some more bass to it then.

Anyways, great work ballistic31! smile.gif

I dont know whether to laugh or cry
To say hello or to think goodbye
I dont know whether to fade away
I just dont know what to say

I only ask for that peace of mind
Rejection or affection that I cant find
I only ask for that joy or sorrow
So that my dreams will find tomorrow

I dont know if its love or suicide
I've got my past I need to hide
Got that door under lock and key
Its just you, my aspirations and me

I just dont know any more

I have no convincing intentions
I'm stuck on the road of misdirection
Misguided in my quest for adoration
I'm lost in the street of condemnation


Thats the full rough lyrics set so far, dunno if that fits the purpose or not. tongue.gif

Here's my idea of how a verse would go, atleast the first verse, the idea here is less words.

Here's some example random lyrics to sing along the melody:

I, don't, Know, what, to, say, or, do

I, feel, so, damn, hollow, and, I don't know, what to sayyy.

It's a very simple Idea so if you like it feel free to expand it!

I wasn't sure if this was going to be a GMC related song or not - lyrically speaking. Based on the lyrics we have so far, it looks like it is not. Is that right?

Keeping the melody that simple creates a very interesting groove to the rythm.

Lyric-wise I think what we've already got here looks good, but I also think It would be fun to make it GMC related. I say we take a vote on this.

1, GMC related
2, stick to what we've got
3, change to something else

I have been listning over and over again to the final mix so far and think that the riff before the vocals doesnt fit. What do you guys think?
I think it should go like before the solo or maybe in between the two vocal patterns???

Hey everyone,
Things are starting to sound pretty good from what I've heard everyone do so far smile.gif
Anyway, here's what I came up with after noodling around for a bit:

Attached File  Collaboration.mp3 ( 1.18MB ) Number of downloads: 223


I wasn't sure where to go with the song, so I basically improvised a little piece over the intro rhythm guitar, which is the attachment above. Who knows, there might be some place in the song where it might fit.

Here is just the guitar by itself without any backing track:

Attached File  Guitar.mp3 ( 1.18MB ) Number of downloads: 204


Marcus will probably have to process this dry guitar sound in order to add some beef to it since I just recorded straight into my sound card with no effects at all.

Comments, criticisms (constructive of course wink.gif ) are welcome, I'm open to change anything for the good of the song.

Peace cool.gif
