The instrumentation wouldn't be out of place on a Tom Waits album...... awesome!
It's almost like a bagpipe tune in it's melody too.

This day is night for me!

Thanks man, I played with the eq alot, but when I took the "boom" out it sounded thin, as it's literally one mic on the guitar and vocals,and a live take.
Had fun doing this one, just trying for energy over all!

Hey Rich, sold one PRS, kept the plainer, nicer sounding one, though I am ashamed to say I haven't played electric in over a year all told.
Thanks for the kind words bro, the fereling is mutual!

This great unknown

Thanks for the listen man, my voice is what it is,not the best but it lets me get my lyrics out....the crack thing is just something my voice does.
Have you ever been with a woman, and she suddenly changes on you, like she's possesed,it's so drastic and odd? Well that's what the song is about.
The synth bass was all I had to hand, as I don't have a double bass or cello myself.

The song was recorded on a Zoom h4 digital handheld redcorder, then the tracks imported into cubase sx lite and the parts added...not high tech studio stuff!

Lol man, I'm no singer and I know it, I have no desire to do any more than play gigs, could care a #@&%! about "getting anywhere", when I write I literally throw away things that sound too obvious, which is why I don't expect people to get it, because I notice people like familiarity.....if I wanted "hits" I'd re-write sweet home alabama every song, or similar.....it's just catarthic for me at this stage, and if other people get it,cool,if they don't they don't I'll just follow my muse wherever it takes me and don't really worry if it's "good" or not in anyone elses eyes. Still worth sharing though in case it means anything to anyone, like some obscure music has reached out to me.
The things I worry about whenrecording are good sound, as in clarity in recording, and learning how to use mics etc to get the best raw sound before any eq or effects are added, and this song was tricky because of the snappy attack transients and body percussion, I learned alot recording this as although I am a very percussive live player, I found the techniques hard to get down on a recording without sounding like a terrible bongo player playing along!
Cheers all,
RJ

Hmm.....I wouldn't say my stuff all sounds the same, I dunno how you would come up with that after hearing one song! I get accused all the time of "not staying on the same page", in fact most negative reviews I get say that there is no real thread between my songs.
It is kind of bland, it was done as a demo, in literally an hour, just to put the melody and lyrics across as I don't intend to perform it myself ever.
Thanks to anyone who listened and commented!
