Sylvia (instrumental version)



 Genre: Alternative Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

For some weird reason, this song was inspired by the suicides of Syliva Plath and Virginia Woolf, so it's a bit on the uber-histrionically-depressed side in mood (especially with the lyrics: I'll add that version later), but hopefully you, too, appreciate that sort of thing. :) The first verse of the song is "Head in the oven, I'm going under. No more poetry for me. I've turned on the gas and boarded up the windows. There is no outside I can see." This version was all done using Garageband MIDI programming and audio loops.

nice arpeggios in start to set the tune
Like it
Like how it goes into a more mellow sound after the start.
Nice use of the cymbals.
Nice additon of the guitar arpeggios as well.

Good tune there, quick touching

Hey guys, thanks for al of your feedback! I should have the vox version done in
a month or so. I've tried recording voice and guitar but I get too much buzz/
hum. I'll look around the site for suggestions on that.

Does anyone have any specific suggestions for improving the song (in its
instrumental form)? For instance, how do all of piano parts sound? Does the
piano solo section at the end sound okay? Does it sound like there's 'too much
stuff' on the song overall, or does it all mesh togther fine?

Cheers, Kevin
