new full band song (first full band)
So i, after a loong time, actually decided to sit down and record stuff. but i got lazy and only ended up finishing one song, which I now hand to you to be torn apart or praised, whichever, but lemme know what you think. it is truly appreciated.
it is a link straight to the song.
Spencer, that song kicked ass! 8)
I really like the dynamics throughout the song. Guitar tones fit the song good, and the singer rocks! Is that you singing? Is this an original of yours? I like it alot! I'll be waiting to hear more form you. :D

I like it a lot, Spencer, and have listened to it several times now. I like your voice. Are you going to put it up on your MySpace page?
(PS How did you manage to get slider on your MS playlist?)
haha thank you everybody to answer questions ill just list out answers.
yes the song is mine and original
i played everything on the track and i am singing
in order to get five songs on your myspace you have to add bodog entertainment as a friend
i really am glad you all like it, it means alot
"It's all about stickin it to the man!"
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
fair enough on the muted bit, but the reasoning behind it is that song builds in anger as it goes, the lyrics are written so as im kinda walking through how im thinking, talking it out to myself. So the first part is like ok i cant let myself get to bad etc but then by the time it gets to " but im trying can you say the same" im just pissed off.
Also i liked how it fit the dynamic to go from muted to electric and more angry, to full out insanity.
but maybe it does last to long, now youve got me thinking....
It's 3:38 people. The way the song builds up is definitely not too slow or tedious. And everyone who disagrees with me is a banana. As for the rest, great work!
I am a banana! (if you've seen "rejected" youd get it)
But not really.
My spoon is too big!
I like the song except for the snare drum. Thats the only part I don't like, but who really cares.
I really like the firefly metaphor. That stuck out to me.
The more I listen to it the more I like it. Don't get me wrong, I think that build up works darn well on various levels, but...
*hides from Ignar*
...the banana in me still thinks that the 'quiet' part is a tiny weeny bit too long.
I have to compliment you on your voice again. It is so... roaarrrrr. Go on, get back to work, we want more!
Your vocals are just where I want to be, but don't think I'll be anywhere near.
If you re-mix it, you may want to bring up the vocals after the intro as they get a bit lost in the music...
How long have you been playing? Writing?
I'm nowhere near Chicago. I've got six string, 8 fingers, two thumbs, it's dark 'cos I'm wearing sunglasses - Hit it!
hmmm i started playing christmas of freshman year in high school and im a freshman in college now so w/e the math is there.
and thanks for the tip on the vocals, frankly i put them back because during the whoas the notes were way hard to hit perfect everytime, and theyre not perfect so is tuck it behind the mix so as to compensate. but i need to just not be lazy and do it right.
again thanks everyone for their support, this is the best reaction i think ive ever had on GN
