Previous Fields

  • Lyricist, Composer or Both?
    I really don’t consider myself much of a musician. I write the lyrics and compose in garage band as a hobby, but I don't play any instruments all my music is composed by the use of loops.
  • Musical Influences?
    I have a deep interest in rock and classic country, however my musical taste are all over the place. there are few genres that I don't appreciate.

  1. Annoying lyrics

    The Lovehammer's Trees is a song I really like but the last line of the chorus always bugged me. I guess I tire of love songs that have to add that doomed relationship element. Why can't a good love song just be that a good love song? It'll be you and me Up in the trees And the forest will give us the answer It'll be you and I Up in the sky It's a combination for disaster when I sing along I change the words to It's the combination I am after
  2. The Break-Up Dawn

    This is a really cool song. I agree that it could be sung better. When I go back and listen to my first songs (it is hard to listen to them) I can hear the difference in my singing. I would have to say the biggest difference between those first songs and now is confidence. I am in not a great vocalist and I never thought I was, but when I first started I held back a lot because I felt like I could not sing well, or my voice was not good enough. However, I knew no one was going to sing my songs for me so I did it. In listening to those song now, I find that they lack passion, and it seems like that is what I am hearing in this song. If your going to sing your songs you have to get over that. Your voice is yours it is not going to change. some people will like it some won't and that is just personal taste. I think you have a fine voice and it fits this song well you just need to sing this with some confidence.
  3. Dirty Money

    Oh yeah! This is a great song. You're going to have to forgive me for my lack of terminology in explaining what I'm hearing. I struggle in this area so I don't know how to fix it . To my ears, it sounds like the vocals don't have enough space. At first I thought they were too far back in the mix but I don't think that's the issue because in certain parts I hear them just fine and in others they seem like they're competing with other similar sounds in the mix. (I think people might call that muddy?) Like I said I struggle with this so I don't know if you should trust my ears

    Changes made.
  5. Forgive me

    Yeah. My wife said the same thing about the lyrics. This was a first attempt at writing a song music first. I normally have the lyrics and some form of melody before I try putting music to it. When I finished arranging it I wanted to try and put lyrics to it, but nothing I had fit. This lyric is something I had been working on a while ago but could never figure out how to put it to music, but it seemed to work some what. So, after some cannibalization of both the lyrics and music I was left with this. I would agree that the lyrics are far darker than the music but I thought that the church organ added a bit of a macabre feel to the music and hoped that would be enough to make the lyrics fit. Originally I had the tempo at 120 BPM and that really did not at all work with the lyric. Slowing the tempo to 108 BPM seems to be the best compromise for the chorus and verses. There maybe just to much of a difference between the verse and chorus to really pull this off. I really like the chorus lyrics the way they are and change it to something less melancholy seems like it would contradict the story line. While I am trying something entirely new here, I am still all about the story when it comes to my lyrics. Thanks for the listen and the kind words. I may just have to write a whole new lyric to fit the song better.
  6. Forgive me

    Well here are the new lyrics. I think this is much better suited to the music. I'll just have to table the others for another time. These lyrics went a bit stalker on me but I think it works so i kept it. Forgive Me My body aches & I got that shakes whenever she walks by it feels like thunder deep inside I feel my knees get weak - my man things look bleak but when I see her smile I feel like I could fly for miles I’m filled with dread she’s dressed in red when she walks out the door I feel my heart fall to the floor. Another day feeling this way I see her once again my heart starts racing deep within I see those eye blue as the sky did she just look at me or was it just my fantasy I want to take her hand I got to make my stand If these feet won’t follow my heart I feel like I might fall apart Please forgive me if I stare I see you every where Please forgive me for writing this song if I am coming on too strong Please forgive me if I’m out of line I just want to make you mine it seems like every day I see her walk away I guess it’s time for me to just give up and let her be But what is this I see she’s walking up to me I can’t believe my eyes she’s right here at my side Please forgive me if I stare I see you every where Please forgive me for writing this song if I am coming on too strong Please forgive me if I’m out of line I just want to make you mine Moonlight She is the moonlight shinning Bright She chases darkness from my life Year after year & night after night through every trial and every strife always there shining her light into the darkness of this life. Clouds, time after time they pass pulling moonlight from my grasp now tried fingers have lost their hold As moonlight slips from her throne On bended knee with trembling hands at moonlights grave I cannot stand Moonlight fades into the night a heart breaks just out of sight Sorrow’s shadow covering falling tears that go unseen moonlight fades into the night tonight Born into darkness I did not know that such a light would ever show now darkness has returned tonight here lies the moonlight of my life Moonlight fades into the night a heart breaks just out of sight Sorrow’s shadow covering falling tears that go unseen moonlight fades into the night tonight
  7. Fly High Butterfly

    Since I was away from the forum nearly all summer I have been digging though some of what I missed here, when I came across this song. What a nice tribute. I really enjoyed the song. I am truly sorry for your loss.
  8. Stage Fright

    Thanks for the listen. I tried to shorten the song but a came back to this length because it just felt right. I have been told my songs are too long before. I think i'm just going to have deal with those comments because I really like it longer.
  9. This is such a wonderful song. I think I am becoming a fan of your work.
  10. Rock 'n' Roll Citizen

    I really like this. Really good lyrics and the sound fits them great.
  11. Stage Fright

    So, I did a little more work on this. While I was trying to smooth out the ending I decided that I liked my longer version better, and then I felt like it needed just a bit more. Screw the length critics, I like it this way. I also did a little more research on reverb, echo and delay. I found something that suggested not using reverb at all and using echo or delay to create vocal space. So, that is what I have done. I dropped all the reverb and put simple slap back echo on the vocal track. I used a delay plug-in on the "my cage" part of the bridge and did away with all the other echos. I also decide that my attempt to growl my way though the bridge wasn't really working for me so I dialed that back some. Stage Fright (extended)
  12. Stage Fright

    Wow. I take that as high praise. Thank you. I would agree with you on the ending I was trying to shorten the song some because originally I had it over 5 minutes. My song length is a critique I'm consistently hearing here. I just keep going until I feel like the song is done. On this one it tried to shorten it after I was done. I didn't like the results so I added some parts back into but I did not extend the ending back the way it was. I'll try smoothing out the fade and see if I like it, if not I might just go back to the original song length. As for the vocal reverb and delay, well, I still don't know what I am doing there. I just mess around with the levels on them until I hear something that starts to sound okay. It probably doesn't help that I start off with some of the GarageBand presets. (I know, "GarbageBand" but I don't have the funds to get a better DAW besides I am am finally starting to learn the program) Anyway I really don't understand echo and reverb and how to properly utilize them all that well. Despite a few google how to searches it is still a bit of a mystery to me. Thanks for the kind words
  13. Aster and Ivy // Heavy Hearted (demo)

    This is really nice. I love the ending it was unexpected. I honestly did not have a problem with the vocals where they are and I am one that typically likes the vocals out front. Nice work.

It is still a work in progress but I think it is getting there. Thanks for you help on the lyrics. Stage fright I heard the sun say to the rain won’t you take my place today another God damn day began with these people looking back my way Sometimes I want to run away and let the moonshine rule the day Stage fright, got me uptight Stage fright, I see you watching me tonight oh yeah, oh yeah Seems like just the other day dreams of bright lights on the stage now all my dreams just fade away in the spotlight of your constant gaze Sometimes I want to run away and let the moonshine rule the day Stage fright, got me uptight Stage fright, I see you watching me tonight oh yeah, oh yeah It’s so ridiculous Feeling conspicuous just want to remain ambiguous Watchin’ me on your stage just want to turn the page tonight these eyes on me become my cage. Sometimes I want to run away and let the moonshine rule the day Stage fright, got me uptight Stage fright, I see you watching me tonight Oh yeah Stage fright Stage fright I see you watching me tonight Oh yeah Oh yeah Oh yeah
