Lyrics
The Calm before the Storm
My sleeping bag is warm
I'm trying to concentrate
It's a Wedding Day - not a Wake

No cause for great Alarm
Now - keep yourself from harm
I know you won't be alone
In your shiny-bright brand-new home

It's just my heart taking
It's just the drink talking
It's just my heart talking

Great happiness is in store
Two children maybe more
Your cup it will overfill
You'll love it I know you will

But things can't be the same
The times they have just a-changed
Time for a different plan
Now you're a married man

It's just my heart taking
It's just the drink talking
It's just my heart talking

Sweet dialogue.

The fiddles weave with guitars nicely.

Peaceful.

Very nice indeed.

On The Fiddle......
Thanks - Chaz (50% of Cadman) has been focusing on fiddling for a couple of years, so we've (almost) finished a collection of songs called, On The Fiddle.

Some of it not quite so peaceful as this one.

/looks for 'Folk Ultra Heavy Rock' category

Thanks!
We've had several goes at mastering this - credit goes to Chaz (who also plays the fiddle on this) at finally getting it done.

Very beautifu...
Great production on this and a wonderfully written song. Well played and sung. Worth some 10's I think.

Cheers for that.....
Getting the fiddle to sound right (even using an electric fiddle DI'd into the kit) is tricky, so I'm particularly glad you liked the overall sound.

A really good post. Fiddles work for me, and the song itself is really good. Love your vocals and the guitars and bass sound good (a few glitchy string buzz moments on the guitar - or maybe the bass - but not a big problem).

Maybe the vocals could drop back a little - I'd love to hear more of the fretless.

Really nice song.

Buzzing.........
Glad you like it overall.

The guitar does buzz a couple of times - in the end we decided that it 'added to the live feel'.

That is of course code for, 'we couldn't be bothered to re-record the track'. :-)

One of the problems with being 200 odd miles away from your collaborator and having largely incompatible kit!
