Another WIP...

Lyrics: (as usual, not completed yet. I have other lyrics written for verse 3 and 4 and a few alternatives for the Pre chorus/Chorus as yet not recorded. The melody for the bridge is yet to be recorded also and is very much wip)

Verse 1:
I may be out of time
and I may be out of tune
but I've got alot of heart

Verse 2:
I may be out of line
and may be out till noon
but I've got alot of heart

Pre Chorus/Chorus:
So I say to you
hold on
and I say to you
come on
My brothers confused
Sister too
but I keep keepin on
but I keep keepin on

Verse 3:
I may be out of time
and I may be out of tune
but I've got alot of heart

Verse 4:
I may be out of line
and may be out till noon
but I've got alot of heart

Pre Chorus/Chorus:
So I say to you
hold on
and I say to you
come on
My brothers confused
Sister too
but I keep keepin on
but I keep keepin on

Bridge:
....................
...................
..................
I carry a lock and safe

So I say to you
hold on
and I say to you
come on
My brothers confused
My sister too
but I keep keepin on
but I keep keepin on
but I keep keepin on
but I keep keepin on

Pumpkiny

I like this, it's what the smashing pumpkins would have sounded like with a DECENT singer. Gish era. First impression, haven't heard any other songs.

Yay, indie song! We like indie songs!

Again, you've got a really catchy song here. The guitar's got some nice chords to it, I also started hearing parts of a sort of acoustic-guitar melody in places, which was nice. you did a solid job of miking this in general, although as has been said, you probably could have done with a little more bass in places (Although that's not much of an issue, given the upbeatness of the song)

I notice this time you've got the piano behind the guitar, as well as the lead guitar which comes in, which both work really well and compliment the voice really well. The voice again, really unique and a great strong point for the song. The way there's harmonies recorded in the voice as well also shows a great improvement from last time...the production value in this is just really spot on on so many things, which is pretty damn cool.

Having just got to 1:35, the way you use clapping instead of the the more conventional percussion works really well; it's a point where drums would've probably been to heavy, and so it's a great alternative which works really well, and again just adds to the reasons this is the kinda song you have to smile whilst listening to.

In general...I don't really have anything to say to fault this. You've got good guitar work, nice choice of the different instruments, good voice...and a nice individual song, which there are by far not enough of on NG. So keep it up, for sure, cause you've definitely got a talent here.

Nice voice!!

I really liked the voice here, man, it fitted really well to the guitar, and the other sound elements, you just made a nice job here, I liked the lyrics, it fitted really wel to your voice, what is great, since the instruments need to fit well to the voice...

The music is very cool, I liked the way it started, you didn't made too much things, just a guitar and your voice, also, that synt. was very cool, because it gave life to the song, helping the guitars and the voice, you made the right choice when you added the synts in the middle of the song...

I have just one question, how did you recorded the guitar?? I wanna submit a song here, but I have any idea of what can I do... Keep it up, guy, you have a great potential...

Nice Job

-I just love original songs put on here. It takes talent to put together a catchy song that's also enjoyable to listen to at the same time.

-The instrumentals get a bit repetitive but i'm guessing you wanted to keep the whole constant beat going. I liked how you used a tambarine in there to compliment the guitar chords.

-You have a very interesting voice that is great for folky songs. It matches well with the melody of the song.

Catchy!

Nice song! I like the sentiment in the lyrics and I like your vocals. You have an individual sound, like a mix between Bon-Jovi and Bob Dylan.

Your instrumentation is cool but your mix is a bit on the trebly side, I'm not getting much on the bass and I reckon that's because you haven't used a kick drum that I can hear. There should definitely be a kick in there or it should be louder if you have one already. I kept expecting a drop and not getting it, which is cool for suspense but not if it never arrives. I feel cheated!

That hook just before the synth solo bit and at the end is really nice and I think you should lead that into a minor sounding section at the end. Repeat that melody a few times and build a progression around that as an outro or something.

I really enjoyed this song though you have a really good voice and your instrumentation is excellent. I look forward to hearing more!
