Yesterdays pride to tomorrows tears - ux2 original

Post by Gu Djin » Thu May 28, 2009 5:30 pm

Started off as the accompaniment for some words I had written, however the words ended up in a different song. Now here it is - a wordless song.

http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7643568

Telecaster lead - 1 track Fender amp simulation
Acoustic bass - 1 track doubled
Telecaster rythmn - 1 track
Yamaha keys for percussion and pads - 7 tracks

Master volume seems very low. I'd put the lead guitar in the center, and turn it down just a bit. And pump up the bass. And slap those words on there, go on, you know you want to! :)

Hi Gwood - try it now. The words are in another recording now, but I'm away for a few days so may write some new words for this. :)

That's better! You've got the bass over to the left? I know people do that, but I've always been a bass in the center guy. But hey, put it where you want to, don't mind me.

This song has a def 60's rock vibe to it.Pretty tripped out. Kinda reminds me of "House Of The Rising Sun". Once again I'm flashin back man! Good sounds GD.

Hey Leigh,
Reminds me of a soundtrack to a spy film, I can see him driving in his car chasing a villan & this music playing as he catches up with the bad guys!!! I'd like to hear the vocals on this, but it's fine as-is!!! Have to agree it's a pretty trippy tune!Good job!!

Leigh;
While I think your playing on this is very skillfull and imaginative, I really do hope you put words to this. The reason it doesn't work for me is the chord progression is so over-worked and old. If you've listened to pop music for any length of time, you've heard it in umpteen thousand songs over the years. While I realize that chord progs cannot be monopolzed or even copyrighted, I believe that you are a talented enough guy to come up with something better. So, Not your best tune, but still showcases your playing talent nonetheless.

Sorry to be so mean, ol' buddy. ;) Just my opinion. ;)

:D

Gave it a couple of listens over a day or so.....seems like the perc is out of sync with the rest. Maybe because it's so quiet, it's hard to keep time?
Dunno. Yeah, not the most orig chord prog.....rode hard and put away wet.
It would really be cool to have you give us the most pro sounding track that you could. I know you got it in ya.
Something that took a few weeks to cook up.
Anyway, this sounds like a rough demo a famous band member from da 60's brought to his group to turn into a hit in the studio.

Hi Leigh,
I think your guitars sound really good.
The music feels like drifting on the ocean.

Really dreamy/moody Guitar!
Well done you...Luv Trace. x

Thanks for the comments Gang they're all very much appreciated.

Marc: When I listened to this after your comments and reviewed the chords I felt it more like "Sunny" than "House of the Rising Sun", but at least we agree with decade. :D

Cracks: Thanks for the listen and comment John. Yes it is very 60's, which was part of the reason I didn't use this for the lyrics I'd written, as I was after a more 50's feel with the Tele twang taking centre stage. :)

Minerman: The spy car-chase is a cool idea, I wish I'd thought of that when I was putting it together. :D

Omegaman: Nice to hear from you Bill, and yes my Yamaha keyboard does a not bad impression of steel drums. No midi. :)

Vocalizer: Can't get it right all the time and I'm just going through a phase of performance at the minute, though I can't get where your coming from regarding the chord prog as wasn't anything in particular but the effects overrode my carefully crafted m7's and augment(b70)s. :lol: Not doing much at the microphone at the moment as the neighbors are going through a phase of reconstruction and it's seldom quiet enough to record. :)

Sungodv: Thanks for the listens and comment Steve. :) I'm pretty crap at putting in drums freehand on the keyboard, so I've taken out the hi-hat tap and the snare and it has improved it a bit, but I want to keep the bass and kettle drums in and I'm working on that. :D Love your other comments, I needed a laugh :lol: .

Kelsey: Nice to hear from you. Thanks for the comments. :D Funnily enough I have a long term project which based on a "sailing the ocean" theme. I may get it finished one of these days. ;)

Tracey: Glad you liked my offering. Hope to hear more of your stuff soon.

Regards to all

Tarantino could use this... I'm reminded of Kill Bill while listening.
It has that unfinished feel to it that I believe is becoming a bit of a trademark.

Its very quirky, whether a simple chord prog or not, it kind of works. Definitely more soundtrack than song.

Found it very enjoyable in a dreamlike way...

I enjoyed that and was wondering for just a few seconds "is that a steel drum I hear?" Good thinking to put that in. Drums could stand the once over, but I kind of like the floppy type sound that I think was the bass drum. Kind of strange but good at the same time. Like I said, I enjoyed this very much. It was nice to just sit back and listen while I worked away on the other PC.

Stevo and James: Thanks for the listen an comments. :D :D

I was looking for a more 50's sound than I got with this, and I thought the steel drums were little out of the decade, but I quite liked the way they worked with guitar so I left it in.

Like the dreamlike comment: hope they're all good ones.

Best Regards
