Description
A song about life ( at least lately ). I would classify this still as a work in progress as I am not 100% satisfied with the guitar solo (but that is about as good as I can do it) anyone interested in giving it a try can send me an email and I will forward the song sans solo.

Lyrics
Pressure


Pressure
It's building up inside
I feel the Pressure
Every day and nigt
I don't know whether
To laugh or cry
I feel the pressure
And I don't know why

Wake up
It's a brand new day
And the morning brings promise
Righteousness
Is the American way
Or is Ignorance really bliss
Round and round we go.

Pressure
It's building up inside
I feel the Pressure
Every day and nigt
I don't know whether
To laugh or cry
I fell the pressure
And I don't know why

As the days go by
The burden seems to grow
Is it real or is it
Something I made up
The more you need
The more you feel

Pressure

Kudos!
I love the feel of this and your chord progressions are dark and moody! Your voice added another layer and fits the song to a tee. Would it be redundant for me to say, I can relate as well? nice work all around and thanks for sharing.

singing
The backup singing is really neat!! But so is the rest of the song.
To me the bottom line is less is more. And the melody is tight
Great guitar collection you have. The nashville sounds just great!!

Thanks for listening and kind words. I have been sitting on this song for a while and I came to the same conclusion that sometimes more is less and this song was asking for less.

Ed, you know I really like this one. Easily your best yet. Lyrically, instrumentally and melodically you've really excelled. You have a really good voice for this genre, so easy to listen to and your playing is understated but interesting. Just got to the solo - sounds just right for the song. I played along with this so many times to try to come up with a solo, both acoustic and on the Tele, and this is so much better than anything I found. Like most things musical, soloing gets better the more you do it. The drums are an excellent choice and the bass is warm without being intrusive.
Production is superb - clear as a bell so you can hear all the nuances, yet nice and round so that it's easy to live with.
You sure have come a long way very quickly - congratulations on a good song!

smooth
very smooth recording on each item. Simple soothing
overall pace and structure - ironic to the subject matter - pressure sucks, who needs it? Not me anyway ...the solo
was good but I would have been happier if it was a bit more laid back, less faster runs to be in keeping with the rest of the song and the solo guitar tone was a little dull on these headphones for my tastes, would have preferred a bit brighter and crisper, if you see what I
mean.

Enjoyed it alot never-the-less.

wowed
if this site had a song of the month contest, this would be my nomination. it's just about perfect in every way - the balance of the right-there-in- front-of-you-but-still-intimate voice to music is magical. "The burden seems to grow/Is it real or is it/Something I made up" made my brain's jaw drop. excellent writing, delivery and production. very nice! anne

I'm a late
arrival here, but had to leave a message to say how much I like this song and the treatment you gave it. Really moody but nice and your voice is really great, M

Hi Ed
Followed the link from your forum post about Pedal Steel guitars. The solo does let the song down a wee bit, as you admit. If you have the Rhythm Section JP I'd try dropping in one of the pedal steel loops in there instead of your solo - you might find something that fits quite sweetly. If you haven't you could send me the track sans solo and I could have a crack at matching something up. What key is the song in? Not that I know much about keys:-))

Otherwise this is a cracking song. I was hoping to find more stuff on MJ's like this - it's straight out of my CD collection of alt country bands like Wilco et al. Love it.

I don't want to promote myself on your page - but hell - I can see a few similarities between what we're doing, so why not? Check out my songs RIp It Up and Red Dirt to see what you think. We both use side-stick drums if nothing else:-))

Great song, anyway. Will check out some more of your stuff.....now!

Nuts!
Just noticed from yr home page that you're using Logic! So scratch the GB Jam Packs idea then I suppose:-))

Ah well.....back to the drawing board.

Cheers,
Phil

Pressure by Ed_Moran
Good lyrics, you can really feel the song build as the 'pressure' builds. Nice production, the drums are perfect, and the bass is good as well. The pitchiness in your vocals needs miniscule work --only on some words at the end of a stanza. KEEP IT UP! GOOD JOB!
