  1. Been working on this one for a while now. Any comments are appreciated. I think the structure of the song and the lyrics are more or less carved in stone, but there is work to be done on the mix. I would be happy to have Your opinion on instumentation, Levels, pannning and eq. I will have my vocals redone later by someone who actually can sing, and maybe keep some of my own "vocals" as backingvocals. The song is a bit long, but I think it will stay this way. http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13551439 The Pills Here`s a pill for the stormy weather and here`s a pill for your pain. Here`s a pill for the traffic jam to keep you from going insane Here`s a pill for the nighttime and here`s a pill for the day Here`s a pill that might stop you In case you got something to say Here is a pill for depression and here`s a pill just for fun Here`s a pill for your troubles that might stop you from reaching your gun. Here`s a pill for the emptiness That haunts you all the time Here`s a pill that will numb you and prevent you from using your mind Chorus: You live by your medication So apart from reality Does it make you feel any better Does it make you feel more free The pills you take will change you But do they make you a better man Are you ready to live without them Are you ready to take your stand Here is a pill for the feelings you miss and all the memories you want to forget Here is a pill to make you feel alive and here`s a pill you will regret Here is a pill for the sunshine Here is a pill for the rain Here is a pill for the pills that you take Here is a pill in vain Chorus – solo- chorus x2
  2. Hi guys! I wrote a bunch of instrumentals that need vocals. Various genres (in the rock umbrella, though) All vocals styles welcome! Just download the tracks, sing over em, and let me hear what you come up with! Thanks! https://soundcloud.com/nickishere12345/corleone https://soundcloud.com/nickishere12345/dawn https://soundcloud.com/nickishere12345/february https://soundcloud.com/nickishere12345/atmosphere
  3. Secret Message © Ben Burton April, 2017 Dropped in on Beggar's Banquet for some tea cakes A smell of hashish meant the chef was stoned Dear Doctor, help, if they start serving raw steak Or sushi overcooked and filled with bones The cover charge is stiff, but after entry Mixed drinks at fifty pence, you'll let it loose The barkeep offers sympathy aplenty Just jump off of his cloud, no parachute Forget all expectations Turn that forty-five around Could be a secret message Don't let Charlie bang you down If he hears a secret message Hold your breath, it's over now Turn up the jukebox, Jigsaw Puzzle's playing With Satan in the lyrics, listen close For Mick becomes a stray cat when he's ailing A prodigal who street fights holy ghosts Forget all expectations Turn that forty-five around Could be a secret message Don't let Charlie bang you down If he hears a secret message Hold your breath, it's over now
  4. Hi guys, I've recently started producing this track and was inspired by Sting's "Ten Summoners Tales" album whilst writing. The theme to the tune is when you meet someone special, get to know them, get on really well just for a brief time, and then part and never see each other again. It has no lyrics, but I would love some feedback if possible on the track. If you would like to add vocals or lyrics, please let me know as I would love to hear vocals on this track. Many thanks, Kevin
  5. This is a new mix based on responses received... Re sung the bridge Low pass shelf on drums Other minor changes in volume and effects Thanks! TURNING BACK THE TIME It's Monday again but it was Monday yesterday You're bleeding again but you just bled out yesterday You'd rather live in a black hole Where time disobeys The event horizon protects you And keeps him at bay You turn around and realize You turn around and realize His paradigm has you confined Turning back the time Turning back the time Turning back the time (repeat 3 times) Your gut is aching everyday You fall again and again He just smiles He won't relent You turn around and realize His paradigm has you confined Turning back the time Turning back the time Turning back the time (repeat 3 times) It's his holiday... Psychopathic misbehavior Never understood the danger You are searching for a savior one Just one Just one Turning back the time Turning back the time Turning back the time (repeat 3 times)
  6. "Hey, can you come play my party for free beer?!" "If you come play guitar for me for $50 this time there will be more gigs to follow!" "Do you have some unlicensed or royalty free music I can use for my video?" "I can pay you in (insert social media platform) more followers if you do this for me." Knowing one's value or worth is the best advice I could ever give anybody wanting to jump in this crazy music industry...OK, the end!! Whew, thank goodness you don't have to read anymore! Seems so simple, right? Monetarily speaking, knowing your worth can be an incredible advantage to your career, or not knowing what your "product's" value is can be a horrible disservice to you and your fellow colleagues. This is what I mean. What we do in the music industry whether it be a song writer, jingle composer, player, artist, manager, booking agent, etc. is entirely different than any corporate structure set in any other genre of business. There is no infrastructure to evaluate how much you should be making on a global scale. There isn't a chart on the internet to tell you how much you should be making. That certainly would make it a lot easier. From what I've learned, culture and the city you live in seem to set a standard. Granted I can only speak as an American understanding the evaluation process in music. Los Angles, New York, and Nashville are what I call the big 3. From there I would say the next tier cities could be an Austin, Texas or a New Orleans, Louisiana for example. But the big three usually set the trends in the largest commercialized music markets (Pop, Rock, and Country). They also have more opportunities in all areas of music as well. How much should I charge for my services? It all depends on your culture, city, and what will you gain out of it. In Nashville, a guitar player hired to play some songs have a pretty standard base rate of a local show getting paid $150 and if there is travel involved no less than $200. But I've excepted gigs for a lot less. Even $50! In corporate business suit and tie world they would ridicule you for taking a 75% cut. I don't blame them. Let that percentage sink in. I didn't know what I was doing was undermining a system that would devalue and under appreciate a player that would be well deserved of a base pay of $150. Integrity in the market place is a concept that , in monetary terms, people will know what to expect. Consistency if you will and it even sets a bar predicated to a system that can establish tiers. For example, do those local shows for $150 and when you have the street credit eventually you can make the jump up to $200, then $225, and then so on, and so on!!! Your culture may have something set in place. Maybe? Maybe not? Isn't it funny? Do you ever wonder if somebody slapped a sign on your back that says "will work for free" instead of "kick me!" Know your worth. Set a standard. Educate yourself from other musicians/writers/engineers/blah/blah/ bah. Let those that have walked that path mentor you. Help your community by establishing that your vocation as a creative is important to be worth given money. I had a coffee with a friend when I first started traveling to Nashville. I expressed that I didn't know my value or even when should I take a gig. I still use this rule to this day and I absolutely love it, and I think it applies here. After he mentioned base rates in Nashville he ended the subject by saying, "Two out of three ain't bad." 1. Is the money good? 2. Do you like the music? 3. Are they good people or are they fun to hang out with? "If you can say yes to at least two of those...two out of three ain't bad."
  7. I've went in and done some things with this. Different guitars, switched the verses, extended fade-out, etc… Any comments are welcome but I'm mainly looking at the mix. My goal is to get it to sound good enough for a free download. Gracias - Randy Donkey Kong Randy Drilingas, Just1L ©2016 I never did care for what you said. It didn't even make much sense. Trick all the dreamers. Make 'em believers. Then you let it go to your head. When you're high do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Did'ja read too much of everything? And turn your mind to dust. The rumors, the trollers, agenda promoters. You never know who to trust. When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got Mario on a string. He's gonna need to pass him. To beat the game. Sometimes the eyes that gaze from a stranger. Can't see past the nose. No need to fear the jeers from a neighbor They'll never make you feel at home. Could you be, Should you be, Do you even wanna be, Do you even wanna be loved? Then don't forget the words of a mother: "If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all." When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got another trick up his sleeve. Well... When you're high, let 'em stare. When you're low, let 'em stare. I don't care. Finally posting another tune. It's been a while. I've got multiple things I'm going to do/change to this but I figure it's at least at the listenable stage. Some things I know I'm going to do, some things I might do depending on feedback. The 2 musts lyrically are switching verse 1 and 2, and changing "win" to "beat" as noted in the copy. Also concerning the lyrics, I'm not really interested if you read through it and get it all. I don't consider this to be that kind of song. I'm going more old school with the vision of "if you hear it on the radio with no lyrics" what stands out and what feeling do you get from it. There is a reason for each of the lyrics though. For example each of the chorus "When you're high…" lines has a slightly different meaning each time, pertaining to the preceding lines. I plan to re-sing it all on a day when I'm feeling more mo-jo. And I also plan to re-do the lead riff guitar and bass. It's the first song I've struggled nailing the guitar parts for, at least my definition of nailing. Mixing thoughts are of course welcome as well. Enjoy if you can. Ideally, you'll want to turn it up.
  8. Hi everyone. Here's a video of my band rehearsing a new song called Coastal. Sorry in advance about the quality, the sound is mostly being picked up by an iPhone. I hope it's marginally listenable, at least for the sake of criticism This song is in its early stage, what I'm looking for is just your initial impressions. Does the song feel cohesive? Any opinions are very much appreciated.
  9. VERSE she gave me a reason to live perfect world as she's my love i can't decide with all my best efforts needle and spoon she is there in a burning hell and i will take her gentle hand once again CHORUS beautiful breathless kiss a sigh of sinful bliss it's all that I want che-mi-stry of calm VERSE for every day since one i love to the one i will hate step back in pain to be someone else a pinch of you to make a move ahead push it to the end i know you know how the taste of life is so perfect now CHORUS beautiful breathless kiss a sigh of sinful bliss it's all that I want che-mi-stry of calm ----------------------------------------------------------------- I'm not sure of my English too, so really any criticism is welcome. I would like to gain some skills and see my own mistakes.
  10. VERSE I turn another page in my head left all the questions unanswered let this story happened to the end I still stay here, when she is gone she's gone with all memories (i know) it’s a price I have to pay it’s a price for no regrets CHORUS only desperation prevail fairytale’s gone only inspiration remain fairytale’s gone my obsession is lost I know fairytale’s gone (she's gone) VERSE lived in a daze for all the time until the day i almost die love... how can i do this to her last case i hide inside my heart if we could start from the very first time look at me now... she's got me again tell me where's your loving god to give us a second chance CHORUS only desperation prevail fairytale’s gone only inspiration remain fairytale’s gone my obsession is lost I know fairytale’s gone (she's gone) OUTRO a fairytale is lost, i stay here with my thoughts she’s gone with all i ever could could recall it’s a price I have to pay to have no more regrets ----------------------------------------------------------------- I'm not sure of my English too, so really any criticism is welcome. I would like to gain some skills and see my own mistakes.
  11. I hope you like this song. It is inspired by Stephen King's book of the same title. It was recorded at home, except drums which were recorded in a proffesional study and mixed at home. Lyrics: A story was told a long time ago when Roland was fourteen and got his guns And he’ll never forget the days of believing That he would be safe from the wizard and glass Susan was returning from her visit to the witch She was forced to marry the old mayor of the town but she Deserved to be free Roland met her and they rode together on his horse Trying to deny their feelings only led to get things worse Starting a war. At night in my nightmares I always remember People from this town telling lies And I’ll never forget the days of believing That we would be safe from the wizard and glass The mayor was found murdered, they threw Roland into jail Susan came to free her love, the crystal ball discovered her The witch could see them People from the village planned to do a sacrifice The offering for harvest would be Susan on a burning pyre She wouldn’t survive Come on now, come on now Come on, save Susan, Roland (x4) Wizard and glass (x2)
  12. This is not a finished song yet, needs fast bridge part. I am very new at mixing so any comments/critique welcome. I already tweaked the eq on cymbols to take off the harsh high end and dialed back a bit on the reverb. A Prophetic Déjà vu Verse1: Earthquakes, famine, sickness, floods Implanted chip security Good called evil, evil good Lose your head if you dare believe Pre-chorus: Is it just happenstance, coincidence of circumstance? Chorus: The signs are all around you Put together two and two The bible speaks and it seems to be A prophetic déjà vu A prophetic déjà vu It's a prophetic déjà vu Verse 2: Matching up the ancient names With current nations in the news As they march in their campaigns Just as predicted right on cue Chorus Instrumental (idea - with end times scripture reading - deep voice) Bridge: Words that were written about the last days Are making up the headlines of the front page Chorus Ending: It’s a prophetic déjà vu (x3) Happening right in front of you
  13. Thanks for You opinion!
  14. Hey Guys, Our first cover of the song "Titanium by David Guetta ft. Sia". Check it out and if you like it hit "Like". And subscribe to our channel for more.
  15. Hi! I am a new writer working on editing my second novel. My book is about a musician experiencing some crazy mental problems on a rock tour and so I've written a song into the storyline. I have no experience as a song writer, just as a music fanatic, so I'm hoping to get some feedback here to validate that the song in my book actually sounds like it could really be sang and played, not just read like a poem. I envision this as a rock song. Let me know what you think! Every day and every night another city scape defined. Those in front and those beside, giving meaning to my life. Existence too fast and realizations too slow. On we go through my memory full of holes." Weaving, leaving, barely seeing being. The map ahead, the road behind, A dark and gapping empty mind. Empty mind, blinded eye, oh not mine. Betrayal slithers and winds with only one purpose. Too many suspects to hide, the true intention of this lie. Existence too fast and realizations too slow. Forward we move with the faint shadow of proof. Weaving, leaving, barely seeing being.The map ahead, the road behind,A dark and gapping empty mind. Empty mind, blinded eye, oh not mine. Empty and gone, forgotten and wrong. The words are an echo that can't be defined. Shallow and thin, secret and song. Wanted too much so he took the whole fall. Weaving, leaving, barely seeing being.The map ahead, the road behind,A dark and gapping empty mind. Empty mind, blinded eye, oh not mine.
  16. Dear All, this song was submitted for an electronic synth Brand contest. I would like to hear about critique of songwriting impressions, vocals (my daughter) and production. Thanks! https://soundcloud.com/kv331synthmaster/not-now-with-me-by-diego-rengifo?in=kv331synthmaster/sets/synthmaster-2016-song-contest
  17. I first posted this a bit over a year ago. The critiques and insights from everyone helped me to completely revamp this song. New chorus, new arrangement, new vocals, and a new mix. All critiques and comments are welcome. 12/19/16 The biggest question in my mind now is: HARMONIES IN THE CHORUS, YES OR NO? I would be interested in any strong opinions one way or the other. GRANITE WALLS Sneaking down the corridorLight steps sound like thunderStand before your granite doorLike a beggar at the altarI know you’re in thereLike a thousand times beforeLurking in the darkest cornerAfraid to face the coming stormEar down the corridorHear the sound of screaming silenceVoices that I’d known beforeDisappear in tranquil violenceFeed the monster, kill the lightJustify some dark desireRemolding truth to feed the lieTear down these granite wallsLeave no stone upon anotherTear down these walls and climb outsideStand upon the sea of glassCast your crown upon the altarTear down these walls and say goodbyeSymbols in the corridorLambent words disguised as wisdomBut we've seen it all beforeWe'll keep you safe if you sell your freedomFeed the fever, Starve the cureJustify your dark desireRemolding truth to feed the lieTear down these granite wallsLeave no stone upon anotherTear down these walls and climb outsideStand upon the sea of glassCast your crown upon the altarTear down these walls and say goodbye
  18. NEW MIX. 12/14/16 1. smoothed out the highs 2. made the vocals sound bigger and tucked them into the mix not on top of it 3. gave the drums more punch 4. brought up the snare and changed the sound 5. added more dynamics 6. fixed a phase problem in the intro on the multi-tracked acoustics 7. enhanced the bottom end 8. tweaked the cymbals 9. EQ sculpting to add seperation in the different kinds of guitars (I have 14 tracks of guitars lol) 10. de-essed the vocals I'd like to know what you all think now. Turn Around I see you there Superficial smile Making jokes at my expense Brittle, broken, crumbling May be what you think of me But I remain unbent Turn around There's nothing left to say Turn around and walk away Don't lie You're never satisfied Until you are the one Shouting out The last word to say Turn around and walk away You should know I've moved on down the road Tied a knot in these loose ends Ended, over, yesterday Is how I think of you today Don't think we can be friends Turn around There's nothing left to say Turn around and walk away Don't lie You're never satisfied Until you are the one Shouting out The last word to say So turn around Turn around... Heated, burnin', blistering It wounds your precious vanity You could never make me bleed Say it, scream it, sing the tune How I always made it hard on you But you know it's just not true Turn around There's nothing left to say Turn around and walk away Oh my, You're never satisfied Until you are the one Shouting out The last word to say Turn around Turn around Turn around and walk away Say goodbye!

  20. Hello everyone! Resumed working on an old track written years ago, the lyrics and main feel of the song are roughly there. hope to hear any feedback from you guys to improve the song. still undecided how and whether to touch up / massively overhaul the song. lyrics: [verse] she’s always living for tomorrow but today, she cleans up the mess, she made she’s always living for tomorrow does she wonder, what she’s losing out today? [chorus] on a Saturday night far from the music, that makes her feel alive with her years slip away the present moment, she could never reclaim [post-chorus] all alone does she know? no? [verse] she’s always living for tomorrow But today, she’s crying in her driveway she’s always living for tomorrow But the riches, ain’t worth the price she paid
  21. This is not a final take, I think, or maybe it's close. Lyrics are below. Over You Your beauty is the kind that'll get men fighting Over you, they will tear each other to pieces Over you, men will conquer countries Over you, they'll do or die. Over you. Over you. Over you. Your eyes will maked many a man do wonders Over you they'll move the immovable over you they'll resist the irresistable Over you they'll go through hell. Over you, over you. over you Your love makes men heroes of the ages. Over you, they'll slay the dragon Over you, they'll start a revolution Over you, they'll make world peace. Over you, Over you, Over you (chorus) So you are supergirl and wonderwoman with your superpower over men bat your eyes and sway your hips and change the course of the world. Over you. Over you. Over you. (break) Your love will make men heroes of the ages Over you they will slay the dragon Over you they will start a revolution Over you they will make world peace.
  22. I don't know how to classify this song. Dubstep? Hip-hop? I've tried different styles of vocals and I settled on this one but I am open to suggestions. It is a rap or spoken word song. I tried singing it but it didn't quite work out. I tried rapping in a higher pitch with a bit of anger but that kinda sucked. So if this works for you let me know. Thanks for your time! (Also, if you can guess the percussion instruments, you get a star!) MORE THAN MERELY HUMAN You're more than merely human you're more than merely man you're more than merely human more than merely woman. More to you than flesh more to me than blood more to life than the physical more to life than the spiritual. More to life than just working more to success than wealth more to substance than glitter and glitter ain’t worth your health More to seeing than just looking More to listening than sound More to connecting than just yacking more to God than found. More to happiness than mere joy more to friends than hugs more to bonding than mere vows more to pleasure than drugs. More to truth than facts more to beauty than looks more to love than mere sex more to wisdom than books. More to us than we can judge more to us than meets the eye smell the flowers, smell the weed you decide what you need. We got free will to make the choice So choose your soul, reject the mold Cause you can feel what is real The love within, the spirit bold You're more than merely human you're more than merely man you're more than merely human more than merely woman. See with your soul, act with your heart come out of the box and realize the world outside your window can be a living Paradise! Copyright (C) Richard Omura
  23. Okay, here's my first song post. I'm attaching an MP3 below. I guess I should get a Soundcloud link. Anyway, this song needs something. Maybe a guitar, keys. Or maybe not. It kind of goes with my vision but still feels like it's not quite right. My vocals could be better. Maybe give it a more punk feel.Tell me what you guys think. Updated: Soundcloud link: Burning Seed I got what you need, I'm a burning seed I can give you such a blast, I can make it last. You can run with me, you'll be safe with me I can take you to the end where we can start again. It comes from way down deep, the fire in my keep the pulse of my heart hammers out the beat It drives me to the edge, propels my dreams, I take the sacred box and kiss open the seams. I got what you need, I'm a burning seed. I will fire up your brain and light your soul aflame. I'll destroy your silly thoughts, make you really feel; I'll give you what you want, a real sweet deal.
  24. Hi everyone! I started writing this song with my band yesterday. It all came together very quickly in a jam sesh, so the instrumentation clearly needs more development and variation. And I will need to write more lyrics. I'm stewing on some ideas, but I wanted to share this song with y'all in its infant stage, to get some first-impression feedback. It's a live video of poor audio quality, so the vocals and bass often get muddled and such. We're a new band and we're not as focused on production at the moment, just trying to find our sound and write fun songs. Thank you for taking a listen! Lyrics: You better stop talking. keep walking I've said too much, will you please not judge me. keep running, because it ain't any fun no more, going out the back door.
  25. Hello everyone! My name is Giovanni Mangiante and I'm from Lima, Peru. I have been making music for quite some time already but I never ventured into promoting my work, whether they are covers or original music. This is, I believe, mostly because of the insecurities that I'm trying to fight off these days. I've never been good with self-promotion and such but I figured I should give it a shot and see if I can actually make a living out of my art. Or at least get some recognition. I started back in 2010 producing and writing rap songs for myself. Let me tell you, dear reader, that my lyrics were as awful as Kim Jong-un's hairstyle. I didn't speak English when I was that young so, I had to figure out a way of making rap songs in English and well, yeah, you can imagine how bad that was. Why didn't I use my native language, Spanish? Because I didn't like the sound of it and because one can be so picky.... So, 4 years later, I learned English to the point I even became an English teacher and dictated some classes for awhile. Now I still make rap songs but with the exception that I also decided to work on Metal, Dark Ambient and DSBM projects. Quite the contrast, am I right? Anyway, recently I started making covers and uploading them to YouTube (I think this site doesn't allow YT links because of the commercial issue but I'm not monetizing my videos so.. I hope I can sort that out here maybe with an admin or someone in charge) while I prepare my first rap demo and DSBM demo. I came here to meet new artists, some maybe even pursuing the same musical genres as me, exchange knowledge about the music industry, and promote some of my work. I hope I didn't bore you with my post and thanks for your time. Have a good day! Giovanni.
