Description
At last I have re-posted Travelers Shuffle with lyrics, as promised. It has been a long time since I sat down and tied to write words for a song. I have tried to take on board all your kind suggestions and as a result have tightened up the mix a little. I may have lost some of the original in the process, still it is a learning curve we are all on.
Hope you all like it.

Lyrics
It's nearly time,
It's time I started,
Hesitation ends,
Can't afford to be half hearted.

I want to see,
over the next horizon,
to look into the eye,
of the sea god Poseidon.

Going to let my eyes,
quench my first.

Chorus.

Maybe I leave tomorrow (X2)
(I know you have dreams for dreamin')
Maybe I leave today (X2)
(I know you have love for givin')

When I was born
that cold December morning
The North wind blew
as the sun was dawning

And since that day
I have had this yearning
to leave my home
on some great journey,

Break

Chorus.

Ha! See? It works!
Sweet work here... and you have done a great job singing, a very nice voice you have there. The reverb was up a teeny bit high for my taste (but Alannah and others would disagree with me :) On the other hand, the swirly extra echo effects on the chorus seemed to work well. I still think you could boost the bass a little more to give it more bite...
ttfn,
Drakonis

Sorry I'm a bit behind with my thank yous. Your opinion is always welcome. I will have to get some new monitors and play this back to see if I can improve the bass, I will also try it through my hi-fi. Thank you Aquarian.

wow
well first of all, welcome to MacJams and to the wonders of garageband! very cool guitar work. your vocals are great! i listened to this with headphones and i really would have liked your vox to be louder, they seemed a little too far back in the mix for me. great bass line. this is fun - has a wonderful energy to it. thanks for sharing this!

Thank you for your support. At the moment I have been dusting down a few very old songs I have written to see if I can freshen them up. Watch this space.

Read your
fun forum post about the mac - I have been a fan of them for many years now. Very happy to have you in the club.
Lovely song and performance. My only critique would be that the lead guitar is fighting a bit with the vocal in some places.
Looking forward to hearing more.
Cheers
Len

Glad
you liked it. Thank you for giving it a listen and I'm glad you liked my mini rant about the joys of owning a Mac. I know what you mean about the chorus. The vocals occupy too much of the same sonic stage. Any ideas? Or do you think the song would benefit from a seperate chorus and guitar break?

Welcome!
Martin,
Welcome to MJ! This is a well produced and performed song. I love your voice, and the guitar and keyboards. Is it all you? how do you do the drums? I guess I should check out the original and the comments there. I'll do that. But this is fine work.
Thanks,
Stephen

Drums
Thanks for listening. The drums are GB 09 midi loops. All Southern rock if I remember correctly. I hand wote a couple of breaks which I mixed on their own track using Rock Kit in GB. Hope that makes sense
