Description
The basic idea - bass line - of this song was brought to the table by Jared…and the lyrical inspiration came from my daughter Caitlyn.

The lyrics and structure of this song are still being hashed out…however this will be the essence, the vibe for the track.
The production of this session was terrible…my fault…I had the pre-amps up too high again and the room mic clipped a little.

The actual track was 6:49 long...i cut it down to 4:00 to get across the basic vibe.
We intend to post the finished version soon...(soon as we get free time...arghhh(free time? what is that?).)

Thanks for listening…

Lyrics
She wants to be with me.
but she doesn't have the words to say,
'don't leave, stay here, with me!'

...and I once was just like you.
It once was impossible just to bring me down.
and I'll tell you the truth...
that I'd give you anything, just rescind all these fast fates...

I'm under your weather!

nice start
though you're right, the recording is crap : )

I like the thoroughly U2 thing your band has going on. Drop me a line when the finished track is up!

The vibe is definitely there
Probably only needs a coat of polish and a bit of work to whip the lyrics
into shape.

The recording quality didn't bother me at all. I was rather drawn to the
raw, edgy feel of it.

Looking forward to the final version as well.

Thanks Snowdragon...a couple more coats of varnish and she'll be good for a spin...
...or maybe a couple more mics and a day off work...that'd be better.
We shall see....

raw
Great bass line and the recording captures the essence of a live
performance. The energy is great, just a little refinement on the lyrics
and this little jem will go far

Yes, Jared's bass line was the key to this track...the G that kept coming...or maybe it was a D...you know what, we fought for quite some time as to what key we were playing in...any ways...
Glad the energy was seen peeping through the roughness.
Thanks for listening!

raw good
You guys have a great thing going. Production is obviously rough and I
hear some distortion but it doesn't stop the music from rocking. Really
solid performances, especially those vocals. Get a proper recording and
mix and this will be ready for prime-time.

raw good
A proper recording...that's the hard part. I mean live, it's just trial and error...with a small room and no seperation what can you do? We just love hearing live music...
Would be nice to be able to record with crystal clear clarity...so far it is a mystery to me...
We will keep trying new things and we will see.
Thanks!

Our combined band age is 87...but we are in the process of developing ways to stop time...

Nice toms
Nice use of toms, I dig the drumming on this. Too bad there is distortion,
if it isn't "on tape" but occurred during mastering/mixing, you should
consider redoing the mix; it his a nice drive and mesmerizing affect. My
ears wanted more to come out of the guitar solo, more energy, more
direction, more build too. Still, as Peter said, nice raw material.

Nice toms
Ya, the distortion was all my fault in setting up the mic level…we just use the one room mic and I had it way too hot, so it clipped pretty bad…
I suppose we could have done a second take…but I have this unhealthy lust for ‘first takes’…I’ve got to get better at tweaking all the little knobs and lights…sometimes I feel like Scottie, “I just can’t dooo it cap'n…I’m give’n it all she’s got!”….We need a sound man or sound ‘monkey’…yes, a monkey would be better.
Tobin, we love your comment!
