I know I have a reputation for serious, dramatic... sad... music.

Well how about these apples?

What you are hearing is my first attempt at making a song where I'm playing the electric guitar. I'm normally a piano man, but I have a soft spot for Rock in general. So yes, I'm "Actually" playing these guitars rather than synthesizing them like I do all my other instruments. This... was a lot of fun actually, I made it quite a while ago.

I wasn't going to upload it because I didn't really think it fit the quality of my other works... but in retrospect... I find myself listening to it more often than not. I also had to play this in a key I cannot normally sing, since I'm not that familiar with a guitar ... so the vocals aren't quite up to snuff either.

But all in all... I think it turned out pretty well.... so Turn it up.

This song was available on "Ilike" (A Facebook Application) long before posting it here... you'll often find work not posted on newgrounds there. So add the app to your facebook and search for the artist "Daniel Stang".

Here be The Lyrics

Stop
You know your just digging a hole
To burrow something deep in your soul
The stars align
We've got to go
And break the spell
Cast on you
A long time ago

And Well Sail away
Just you and me Baby
We'll see the world
Don't wait
Theres no delay
If I could have the world
I'd know just where we belong

Now What can we surmise
Just Look between the lines
There's never been a time
More perfect

If I should struggle free
Maybe you'll finely see
It taking over me

And if you wanted to kill
Just to feel like your real again
I'll be your man
But you can't see what I see
Until you eat from the tree
that holds the secret
behind this madness

And we'll sail away
Just you and me baby
We'll see the world
Don't wait
Theres no Delay
If I could have the world
I know just where we belong

Where we belong
We belong
We belong
We belong...

Screaming "Adult Contemporary" Here....

For a while I figured Bad-Man-Incorporated (remember him?) assisted in this song, if not in doing the guitar tracks then doing supporting vocals. Your voices have an ironic similarity. Also, he contributed guitar tracks for "Time" (your "finale" track) ages ago so I suspected another collaboration. Not to say I was disappointed, but know that your voice can, at times, get close to that guy's.

Anyway, I have this track downloaded (had done so for years thus far) and I still play it to this day. This is like when Metallica did Fade to Black and later songs like Welcome Home [Sanitarium] and Nothing Else Matters; your persona as a dramatic, melancholy pianist had you pegged, or typecast, so you decided to try something you always had your eye on and went with it. Ironic, then, that this track of yours is played most often in my playlists.

There is a need for a solo in this track. The song itself is well-written (got a few grammatical errors like "your" should be "you're" in the lyric sheet) but it only demonstrated a basic understanding of the guitar. Practice, practice, practice. For your polling question, I say pursue, if only to update the track. A solo is technically demanding but a good way of showing off. It doesn't not need to be furious since the tempo is upbeat without being hypersonic.

Overall, a good track. Pretty basic in terms of guitars, but good for a first try. Also a cool Fade-to-Black-esque change of pace for an otherwise melancholy pianist!
