Well... Got a new song today... It's called "Chance".... It's anouther not so heavy song, but one everyone should like... heh, if ya can't tell this song I wrote for a chick... (I won't bore u with the story) Hopefully this will score some points... but anyways...
Schecter Electric guitar...
Flextone III Modeling amp...
Mod Delay (for the delay on my voice at the very end)
Fruity to Sequence the drums...
My special lil kit for the Acoustic drumkit...
some equing and mixing and all that good stuff....
And the link for "Chance"
All questions and feedback much welcome

Hehe you yanks, learn to say 'bird' instead of 'chick', so much better all round, less 60s, more erm.......
Anther nicey song, but come on , have a bit of confidence in yer gitar and vocals, the current idiot (sorry idiom) is to use as little reverb as possible; you do admirably well, apart from the drums which sound about 4 rows back.... sort it!
It should be a piece of piss to write a nice middle 8 for this song... you didn't bother!!! Lazy!!! Even a few bars of d, Am, C, resolving to G, would have done it, with the attendant build up of bass and drums- crime! Do it.

Ok, I'm gonna sound really dumb, but what do u mean by middle 8 ? like a guitar solo or break or somthen ? not sure what your meaning... glad u think it's a nice song tho... bout the drum sound... I've never really had the best drum sound... any ideas on how to improve that ? it could b my samples aren't the greatest but I dunno...
thanx for the listen...

ive heard better from you gc.....good for you to get another under your belt tho.....
the lyrics are....well boring. sorry, maybe im too harsh...but,i think you would be better off if you tried to capture an emotion rather than recycling those old worn out cliche's.
keep going man, and listen to donks....he has written 1 or 2 songs himself!

i was in the room when it was written, and let me tell you...it was more powerful than anything ever...so go suck a horses ear...

Very nice! Good vox, good song-writing.....but the mastering could be better. Sounds strange here.
Love the organic guitar sound!

I could have sworn gc's words were:
Choose your friends wisely.
I really like your stuff and I hope you don't take criticism personally. We are only making observations in a light hearted way with lots of and .
I am only suggesting that you don't get caught in the trap that many writers fall into. Listen to music by John Mayer, Joni Mitchell, etc and you will find that under the thin layer of superficial stuff is a deep and meaningful description of what you are trying to say that will connect with the listener..... or you could just say to me "you suck man!" ...your choice.

No no no... the critisism is very much appreciated... it makes me strive to be better... I do know at the moment know why it sounds like it need some more mastering done to it... I found I had lost all my settings on my effects, they were all just set to random things... (must have gotten corupted or somthen) anyways... I have some awful setting on my master compressor so... that really screwed it up...
The lyrics.... sorry... they were more ment for one person, and It drove my point across to her extremely well... so... but anyway... I can c them being boring to somone else... but like I say... it was kinda a personal song...
anyways, I do thank u guys for the listen and the advice...
(next song will b a harder one )
