Post your FIRST POST here to introduce yourself, and afterwards to welcome new members.
Strictly NO MUSIC LINKS, OR LYRICS. The "Introduce Yourself" board is about YOU. Don't worry... you can let us hear works in progress on the critique boards, and finished work in the Musician's Lounge and the Showcase Board.
Includes lyrics, instrumentals, full songs, recording, production, and cover critique for music creation and other creative arts critique such as poetry, artist / band artwork and photography, and music video production critique.
Hello, David. I'd found a song of your's posted somewhere on the forum which I'd listened to but haven't been able to find since... maybe you've taken it down. It was "If I were You". Haven't heard softer sounding songs of your's before and just wanted to say that I liked it a lot
I love the Chorus, the verses were great also, but chorus flowed smoothly for me. The meaning was very emotional and would capture your audience going through the pain of young love. I liked the idea of the education behind the words. lesson learned now being passed down, that drugs, pills never heal a broken heart. I think the way the world is today, swallow a pill for a quick fix, we need more songs against this type of behavior and explaining why, these lyrics do just that.
I see you have now commented on other posts. Thanks!
For me to better hear the specific words the singer is singing, I don't think the vocals need to be any louder - though maybe a little less reverb on the vocals would help. But mostly, I think the bass needs to be less loud and a lot less "boomy." Just my opinion.
Color me pretentious I guess
I don't use them in everything, but I've always viewed them as another tool in the writing/arranging arsenal.
If they seem an appropriate choice, I use them...like here -
