  1. Sorry @M57, just added them above!
  2. This is my latest song - "Without You Here" - really looking for ideas about what to put behind the track i.e. instruments, percussion, added vocals, and also criticism on the song itself (i.e. flow/melody/harmony/structure/repetitiveness/memorability etc). Thanks in advance Lyrics: You're the real deal You're the one I didn’t tell you when you were around But I should have done It’s not like I need you and I’ll be okay They say you’ll find another one soon But I still miss you everyday (And now I'm) Sitting in a parked car hiding from the raid Screaming out the songs as the radio plays but It’s not the same without you here Dancing round the kitchen before we go to bed Laughing at my jokes they sound funny in my head You said it’s something bout the way she smiles that makes you want to love with her and not me You said there’s something bout the way she laughs but I know she won’t make you laugh like I did It’s not like I miss you It’s not like I care But I see you in every face and I can’t help but stare [Chorus]
  3. Thank you for the positive comment @MonoStone! I have just tried to add reverb to make it sound a bit more put together as it was sounding pretty flimsy, but I am really not good at mixing/producing so it is very rough and the instrument as well as the background noise is projected hugely is all of my pieces unfortunately. I have recorded everything on GarageBand just using a mic via a midi fast track. I have recorded guitar separate to vocals and then just doubled up the tracks and added harmonies and percussion. Hope that makes sense, and thanks again for taking the time to listen and comment!
  4. Thank you @Richard Tracey - I completely agree with you with regard to the lyrics, am still learning! I used GarageBand
  5. Hi, This is my original song, "Make you stay". I only joined Soundcloud two days ago and am not very skilled at recording/mixing but would love any feedback you can give (Lyrics, melody, structure, quality, catchi-ness, instruments, arrangement, tempo, voice etc). Thank you in advance https://soundcloud.com/alexxxiii/make-you-stay Lyrics: So this is how the story ends Decided we were better off as friends The way you look tonight with your sorry eyes and your goodbye smile Nothing I can do to make you stay Same old you and same old me Beginning to see things differently From the moment that we met you were saying things that I won't forget There's nothing I can do to love you less Am I wasting time trying to make you feel the same So I'll try and try change my mind cause I can't change the rules of your game but I'll still try Can we go back To when we were more than friends Can I be the one you love again Cause I can't bear to watch you walk away Darling I would do anything to make you stay Such a feeling such a rush It started off as little more than a crush and it's the way you look tonight with your sorry eyes and your goodbye smile there's nothing I can do to change your mind Am I wasting time trying to make you feel the same So I'll have to change my mind cause I can't change the rules of your game but I'll try So can we go back to when we were more than friends can I be the one you love again cause I can't bear to watch you walk away darling I would do anything to make you stay Back to when we were more than friends can I be the one you love again cause I can't bear to watch you walk away darling I would do anything darling I would do I would do I would do anything I would do I would do anything to make you stay
  6. Hi

    Hello, My name's Alex and I am a student form the UK. I play piano, violin and guitar and would one day like to be a songwriter. I started writing songs in music class at school and fell in love with it. My songwriting took a bit of back-seat while I pursued my education but recently I have decided to be brave and start posting my music so that I can really pursue what I love. I have joined Songstuff so that I can get critique on my music, but also so I can listen to new and interesting writers and get inspired.
