  1. Patty, I would normally write my lyrics in a day or two, my rough-mix, then I would spend the next week or two trying to fix it/ make it sensable. Your questions are much eligible and just what I need, so thank you! So.. My story is about a man - the driver - getting killed in a car crash, and instantly becoming the ghost watching himself/the scene from the side, like a fly on the wall. Likewise at the funeral. He is confused, though. Who is that man? Then the difficult part: who are we, and what is a ghost anyway? What is reality? Are we all just passengers in this life/this journey? Then who's driving the car? Back to the lyrics: The drugs here are not important and can be dropped. A crack in the sky is weather-related. Thanks again Geir
  2. "When morning comes and our eyes meet in the sun Sweetheart, I’m sure it won’t be love" Nice. Makes me smile Charming story. G
  3. I'm sorry. To me, the whole story is just one big cliche. I challenge you to write something fresh and unique. I'm sure you can. Geir
  4. Hey all. Please have a read through and feel free to correct, advice, throw in alternatives, anything! Thank you. Passengers GER©2017 A1 The road was dark and slippery And the driver high on drugs It happened so quickly In the blink of an eye No regrets, no feelings But a crack in the sky A2 Smells and noises and flashing lights Lots of people running ‘round Confusing, disturbing What is going on? His body all messed up Is he really gone? B Oh, what a scene C Mind the ghost observing it all Upside down like a fly on the wall In between and far behind What is real is in your mind A3 Ashes to ashes, dust to dust So unreal, poor family It happened so quickly In the blink of an eye No regrets, no feelings But a crack in the sky C Mind the ghost observing it all Upside down like a fly on the wall In between and far behind What is real is in your mind D We are all passengers We are all passengers We are all passengers We are all passengers
  5. Hey man, thanks, I'm glad to hear that!
  6. Thank you, Ken, programed drums are always a challenge. Cheers
  7. Thanks so much, so glad you like it! G
  8. Emily, Lovely song! One suggestion: add some distortion to what's going on in the back. It would be a nice contrast to your silky voice. Now everything is silky. Listen to Portishead. Well, it's a matter of taste, I know. Still.. I do love it though Cheers, Geir
  9. The song is good and vocals are good. The strummed acoustic guitar sounds to be DI'd. Maybe add some chorus or tape distortion. Cheers, Geir
  10. Hey good people, Please have a listen and tell me what you think of the song/production/mix. Cheers, Geir
  11. Just what I needed! Yea I see what you mean and will try your suggestions. Thanks a million! The tune is now unavailable 'till the new mix is ready. G
  12. Oh, sorry and thanks!! I changed the title
  13. 1. color each track with a little bit of the same room verb, except kick and bass, leave those dry. 2. left guitar in the intro is too far out and too low. 3. now the solo guitar in my right ear is too far out and too low - overall push back the drums and bring the L/R guitars more upfront 5. vocals are good but maybe too much delay - gets lost sometimes Cheers, Geir
  14. My new tune is a guitar based instrumental. Please have a listen and tell me: 1. is it exciting enough througout the 3.50s or do you fall out? 2. Is it well ballanced - or do you find any sounds/instruments/parts annoying or... just wrong? Your oppinion means alot, wether you are an amateur or pro! Cheers, Geir
  15. Lovely song Alex! Only thing to comment on, as it's just you and your guitar and some backing, is that the dynamics are all over the place. A smart compressor would solve this. Make the quiet parts and the loud parts more even. Cheers, Geir
