Description
Just a song that reflects my anger with our elected folks in Washington. I did a little over kill with the cry baby, that was intentional. This is not the finished product. I don't know how many times I have dumped this and started over. So I thought I would put it up as is and get some feedback.

Lyrics
He said they said seems to me the games they never change
So you make damn sure your on the T.V. news so you can point the blame.
Well the house of cards is falling down, the writing's on the wall
Stop thinking who to point your finger at, cause you got some problems to solve.
CHORUS
We got wars going on all around the world, people dying every day.
More and more people living out on the streets, that had a job yesterday.
The bail out shit that you passed last year, should have gone and thrown the money away.
Planet's getting warmer every day, so now I got something to say.
PLAY NICE

I don't really care who your daddy was, or how long you had your seat.
What committee you chair who you know, really doesn't matter to me.
See we all took a vote and we want some change, not your partisan mentality.
So don't just show up, grow up and think about what your actions really mean.

Chorus

I could go on forever with this little tune, but I don't want to sound like you.
Complain about every little thing, 'cause I got better things to do.
But when you go to work each and every day,can I get one favor from you.
Think about where this country is, and what you all are going to do.

Chorus

Nice guitar
I like the tone of your guitar. I think the cry baby is perfect. A little more effect on your voice would have been cool.

Hey MG...nice rocker you got here. I got a few with similar topics brewin; there must be a lot of us that have had it.. maybe you kicked off an MJ tea party with this one :-D Vox are a little light in the mix, but the feel still comes thru. The rockin feel gets the foot tappin...NICE TRACK!

Great song
Russ and wonderful guitar - i don't think the wah is too much either - sounds great.
Nothing wrong with the vocal - you just need to be more confident about it - sing out.
Will definitely be a killer track when its finished - just needs bass and vocals mixed up.
Cheers
Len

Rebsie said 3101 days ago (February 23rd, 2009)
Agreed ...
I agree with the sentiments in the lyrics ... and I don't even live in America. Our lot over here are just as bad. I do have a vivid recollection of the smug publicity photo of Bush and his sidekick shaking hands over the "bailout" - they looked like a couple of thieving spivs finally getting their hands on the loot.

Anyway ... nice rocking tune with some fine guitar work.

Ya, It's a sad day.
Corruption is everywhere and getting worse. Bankers, Lawyers, everywhere you go. And Bush, I don't even want to go there. I wonder how much worse it would be in this country(and worldwide) had his term not come to a end.
Anyhow thank you so much for the listen. I love to play.

mowguy3 said 3099 days ago (February 24th, 2009)
I have been pushing buttons
for fifty years and loving every minuite of it....Thank you Jack for the listen. I am just a old 70's rocker that can't get it out of his system.

Play Nice
Great riff. I have one that's similar to this one. I haven't recorded it yet. May not end up doing it as I don't have my own studio yet.
I'm not a big political protest song guy but, the lyrics on this worked for me anyway. Get that bass on there before you redeux anything else. It just may push your vocal to the next level.

I will use the cry baby for lack of riffing skills. Not in this tune though. Thought it may be to much but I liked it this way. Thanks for listening and comment. It's alot comeing from a guitar player of your callaber.

So the grass
isn't always greener...sounds you got the same stinkass sort of politicians that we got,sod the people,snout in the trough and out for what they can get.
And then they get all offended and hurt when such sentiment is expressed...and another thing..Oww me missus has juast pushed me off me soapbox before I really get going...Great song a leeeetle more ooomph in the vocals is needed,a bit of nastiness like Lemmy ( Motorhead)or Bon Scott(early AC/DC)but kickass nevertheless.You have to finish this it's a genuine stick it to the man rocker......... -U -thats supposed to be the thumb out two figers up 'devils horn' rock gesture ...oh well!!

I did comment previously
but it seems to have vanished!!!!! i think I said something like this -

cry baby cry- make your mother sigh - she's old enough to know better - etc.

I like the song and the subtle use of the wah - maybe another vocal line just above the main melody would be nice - just a suggestion. sounds fine as it is.

Loved the words to this one, explaining what many of us folk feel, though many in power, the word NICE doesn't register and they continue to give us double-speak.

guygrooves said 3072 days ago (March 23rd, 2009)
Cool tune
2 things spring to mind 1st the lead guitar would sound better with a sharper tone to contrast a great rhythm guitar track. By sharper I mean something that cuts harder not sharper tonally. This is on the verge of a kick ass tune man. 2nd bring your vox up a tad and add a touch of reverb or delay to the whole mix to give it some depth. Grrrreat tune man.
Peace

for the listen and advice. All my stuff need some work as this recording stuff is fairly new to me. I enjoy writing and playing after that it's hit or miss. I do like the advice as well as the kind words and I thank you for both.

Great Job
Hi Russ

Absolutely exellent guitar play. Awesome.

Make a record with this one on.

Suggestion try to make it without voice so only guitarplay can be enjoyd (guitar behind your voice).

NB. How did you create that awesome guitarsound ?

Keep up the good work. Great to follow your progress.

Take care my friend, Claus Gamborg

mowguy3 said 3051 days ago (April 13th, 2009)
Hi Claus
Thanks for the listen,glad you liked it. How I got the guitar sound?
Using the above listed tools. Probably the most importent on the rythem was the Blues Breaker. I had that set on the blues mode and about 1/3 turn up on both the drive and tone, volume all the way up. The twin had a little overdrive and prettymuch everything else was right up the middle except the volume (I like my neighbors). The Cry Baby was pretty much the same settings only with the Cry Baby. Miked with a Sure SM57, not a expensive tool but I do like it. Hope this is what you were looking for.
Take care bud, Russ

Yeps
Absolutely. I've been looking for a sound like this but unfortunately I don't have the tools to make that sound. Awesome.

Very tricky setup .. cool job.

If I get close to that guitar sound on a song in future I'll be happy.

Thanks, Russ
