Shortcoming w/ Vic Holman


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is my first collaboration on Macjams. Vic was nice enough to help me out with this one. He did a lot of the guitars and drums(and mixing). He also tried to give me an "Instant Karma" sound on the vocals.

I'm always willing to collab if you're interested.

Special thanks to Vic.

Shortcoming


I really couldn’t remember
The streetlight flashing alone
As we were walking back home

It could have been a total adventure
With the door that was unlocked
I think it was 5 o’clock

Oh my mind. Everything worked out fine
I stand and fade away

There was something I couldn’t imagine
Like a tree falling down in a lake
I think it was all a mistake I made

I should have seen it all coming
Everything I wanted to say
Tomorrow, right now and yesterday

Oh it’s wrong. I know I didn’t belong
But, you see that’s just the way I am

All I want for you to do is love me

I really couldn’t remember
The streetlight flashing alone
As we were walking back home

It could have been a total adventure
With the door that was unlocked
I think it was 5 o’clock

Oh my mind. Everything worked out fine
I stand and fade away

All I want for you to do is love me

.. and firsties! Man, this really has the Holman (tm) guitar sound. A really rocking track - the drums are fab, and i love the chorus effect on the vox - works really well Dave. Great collab guys - more please?

I wasn't sure how this was gonna work and I'm quite happy how it turned out.

Thanks ER and who knows, maybe we'll have a go at another in the future.

Nice work.
Sounds very trippy and 60s to me. You have both done a fine job here, although I feel the vocals get a bit lost in the mix in places, But what do I know about mixing!

Shortcoming - Longcoming
2 of my most favorite songwriters come together on this excellent song. I hear 100% of both of you. I thought I was this amazing matchmaker, but I am embarrassed that I never connected the two of you together. There's a real natural seamlessness between your styles in this song. Now I'm thinking Vic's vocals with Dave's vocals could be the next best thing since the MacJams Super Band - The Goodwillys. Please continue to collaborate. You two have just scraped the surface.

I thought your bookkeeper might have had enough you.

Happy that you could take a little break. Hope to see you around more often soon. Don't stress too much.

Work to live, don't live to work.........and have fun.

You're repeating yourself, you know.

Thanks for the advice about too much work and not enough Goodwilly.

thanks Dave
for letting me join in on the fun and messing around. i really dug the quirky poppiness right off the bat. plus all those cool riffs you have in there. It was right up my alley so I was playing along right off the git-go.

I should mention that Dave has 2 electric guitar tracks on here. and I added another 6. execessive? nah

Tanks again Dave, it was fun and painless.

Instant Bowie
I love the Lennon styled vocal. I also hear a TON of Bowie in this. Balls out swagger with a great touch of 70's glam. Cool tune!

Thanks for the Bowie/Lennon compliment. Vic is responsible for the vocal production. I'll have to ask him how he did that "Instant Karma" thing with my voice. I really dig that.

Thanks,
Dave
