Description
Based on Ephesians 2 and 1 John 1:9

This is a song I wrote during my time with the Air Force while Stationed in South Korea. It is a song about how GOD can turn our lives around, and redeem what we threw away. It is as much a Prayer for my Life as it is a declaration about what he has done in it. See below for lyrics and credits for some vocal loops I used car of "digifishmusic" via http://www.freesound.org.

Now We Are Changed
Music and lyrics by Jack Gilbert

--------------
Dead in our sin
and blinded by lust
For all the things that this world brings
Though it was killing us

Hopeless and alone
we built ourselves a thrown
Made ourselves kings but owned nothing
No home to call our own

Though You could destroy us
You called us to your thrown

Chorus:
We were dead, now we're alive
We've been raise through Jesus Christ
Saved by faith, but even that received by grace
Not of works, so none can boast
And all of this to make you known
You called the lost and reveled to us Your face
Now we are changed


When we confessed our sin
you were faithful and just
You forgave us and then
You purified us
You have made us whole
and now you are on the thrown
You are the King, our everything
And we are not alone

Chorus:
We were dead, now we're alive
We've been raise through Jesus Christ
Saved by faith, but even that received by grace
Not of works, so none can boast
And all of this to make you known
You called the lost and reveled to us Your face
Now we are changed

I am
glad you had that place to go in the midst of confusion. Humility is difficult to foster. Ben Franklin said "as soon as you think you've got humility you've lost it". Thanks.

Now We Are Changed
Ok Jack, first off this is a really well written song in the praise genre. I have played quite a bit of PAW music, and this has all the great elements, and is sung from the heart. Now, I thing the mix needs a little work, as I think it is a bit flat. Drums need to be tweaked, timing and eq. You are definitely on the right track, and this song has potential.

Thanks
Yeah, I'm just starting to figure out that the mix is a BIG part of of recording(duh) but don't have a ton of experience or know how. I think I am going to go back and change some things with the mix. Thanks for your advice and kind words.

Mix
Jack, it is a growing process, all of us went through it and are continuing to go through it...I have a hard time listening to some of my earlier material, but the archives serve as a good gauge of how far we progressed over time. You will get better, and with the helpful ears of your peers here at MJ's you will become more confident in no time. You're not as far off as you might be thinking. Peace!

I like the song, arrangement and performances here, but agree with Chris that the mix is a little flat. I've used the http://tweakheadz.com/guide.htm to get lots of great ideas for mixing and such.
A belated welcome to MJ!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thanks for the link
I'm going to check it out. I have a lot to learn about mixing. Thanks for the advice. I might just go back and fix this one if I get a chance during break.

hi jack - it looks like you've gotten some helpful critique here. this is not at all the type of music i make so i'm afraid i don't have much to offer in the way of critique, although i can hear the "flatness" in the mix and a few timing issues as already discussed by others. i'm a big fan of your voice already, glad you've found your way to MJ - it's nice having you around!
