Description
So...

This is a cover of...hahahaha...wait ...never mind...

I figured I’d do an original tune to throw y’all off a bit... :) hahahahahahaa...

And I pulled it off (I Think)...with the help of the wonderful and talented Fairy Beth..

I asked her to sing over this tune I had, and I am very glad she did (man can that girl Sing!!)

Thanks for takin the time to jam with me Fairy Beth.... I hope you all like it as much as me! ;)

Input from FB: “I wrote it (the song) about a very cool and unforgettable night I had on the south coast of Mexico last year..."

Very cool indeed :)

Vocals and Vocal melody By Fairy “Bizkit” Beth

Guitars, Bass, and Drums by Me (ronnielong)



Lyrics © 2005 Fairy Beth

Music © 2005 Pyro Studios/ JMTII Records

*Many thanks to Alimar and Mysti for givin' this tune a listen before I posted it*

Ps. I’m glad to be “back” :)

-Cheers-

Lyrics
Verse:
I left my guitar
with a washed up man
to sing beneath the moonlight
with the sweet combine
of tequila and lime
to emphasise the sunrise

Chorus:
A handful of sand to match the songs that I learnt
While I drank the scorpion and he took the worm
I looked to the sea and said no doubt I'll return
to mexican waves

Verse:
That night I gained
more travelling friends
from Australia to Finland
We could sing Bob Marley
till our hearts content
'cause he's a universal legend

Chorus:
A handful of sand to match the songs that I learnt
while I drank the scorpion and he took the worm
I looked to the sea and said no doubt i'll return
to mexcian waves

Bridge:
I could have stayed four seasons
to feel i'd lived
and i'll find me more reasons
to go back with

Chorus....

Great collab
Nice to see you back, Ronnie! The vocal is beautifully
done (love the harmonies too) and stands up really
well against the strong guitar. Nice one!

Back onboard!
Great song, you two. Excellent lyrics and singing FB. You
have great command of your voice. I think if you sing
right up to the mic (with a pop screen) the recording of
you vocals will sound less "roomy". You're a damn good
singer; worth a better recording.

Ronnie, great playing as usual. You rock. I think the
arrangement of the instruments needs to be spread out;
most everything sounds like it's dead center. Let the
elements find their own spaces.

Overall, a great tune and a great combination of Jammers.

Thanks fer the comments and the tips Pg.....glad ya liked the tune!

I messed around with the mix a lot, guess I'm still learning..... I need to quit
stressin' an let the tracks "fall into place" :).....maybe I OVERproduced it to
death.....hahahahahahahaha... I'll get it right one of these days..

Thanks again Bro..

Cheers!

Thanks for everything Bro, you are always willing to help.... It really means a
lot when you take the time to listen to my crazy tracks before I post em'

Nice pairing
I'd like to pull the drums and bass up a bit in the mix, I get
FB nice and strong and the guitar mix is good, but it all kind
of overpowers the bass and drums. Might be fun to add
some congo drums in there or shaker as well.

Nice work you two.

Hey Klick!

Thanks fer the comments and the tip Bro....

Ya know, at first I had the drums too loud in the mix, then I thought I had em'
ok.....Guess that happens when I hear a song too many times
hahahahahaha... I should have left it alone for a few days, maybe get some
fresh ears on it.... but oh well.....thanks again fer givin' it a listen Bro!

I'll have to put some of them crazy drums in the next version.... :)

Cheers!

jiguma said 4817 days ago (July 13th, 2005)
Like it a lot!
Great combination of voice and (mostly) instruments. I
agree with ka-klick about the bass and drums - suspect
it's got more to do with the fuzz guitar though, which I
find a biit overpowering at times (never was a big fan of
that sound). Would love to hear a version without the
fuzz, and more acoustic guitar.
Brilliant vocals FB - love the harmony!
Check out my latest song called We End Up Being All The Same (42)
ronnielong said 4813 days ago (July 17th, 2005)
Like it a lot!
Ooohhhh...I'm all about the fuzz guitar.... sorry it got a bit overpowering in
places...but I think FB's voice was a great contrast to it...

(and there may be an acoustic version in the future :) )

Thanks for the comments!!

-Cheers-

Good song
Excellent guitars and vocal performances! Wow! Also very
interesting lyrics, fits well with the summer. This is a such
a good song, the arrangements, the refrain etc. I think it
deserves a second round. The guitars are a bit flat, I
would really love to hear a good mix where both the fuzz
guitar and the vocals both stays out clean and almost kind
of fight each other (I don't know of this makes sense).
This is very good as is of course, but with some more
work I bet you could get this thing on the radio stations...
Great work and welcome back!

Suzanne said 4817 days ago (July 13th, 2005)
smooth and hard, like the coastline
the airy Norah Jones like voice over Ronnie's heavy guitar works really well. smooth and hard aat the same time, adds an element of seductiveness to the trip. i really like the lyrics too. the song ends too fast for me, maybe a longer fade? i kept singing it afterward! really nice track you two.

Seductive Sonic Contrast...
makes for a powerful concoction. Smooth as silk vocals
against some rough and ready guitar from a couple of rock n
roll renegades. Can someone pass the salt? I'm ready for
another shot.

Helluva
way to make a re-entrance. RL- you rock- pure and
simple. FB, you've never sound better than when you sing
something that's personal. This is a nice whimsical song-
extremely well written- musically and lyrically.

I swear I melted when I first heard this. Freakin' awesome!

Your guitar...
...reminded me of Slash on this one... although, I
guess, it often reminds me of Slash. That's a good
thing, of course. Great collab. Fairy beth goes well
with everything, it seems! Must...download...
