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. Ambient songs with guitars and vocals

    Thanks Bob, I probably would not have taken the time to listen to all of theses had it not been for your comment. But after reading your post (I guess out of defiance) I decided that I would listen to every one of them. I am glad I did there is some real good stuff here.
  2. Milk and Honey

    Thank you all.
  3. Milk and Honey

    Thank you, Yes, that is me singing. I also would have liked some variation in the chords but not being able to play an instrument is quite limiting. I just couldn't find loops that allowed me to do it on this one.
  4. Taylor Swift's song writing process...

    Well, the video makes me feel better about how often I am changing lyrics, swapping out words and phrases that seem to fit better. I always end up with something other than what I start with and sometime completely different. Onewholovesrock, I also have to write my changes down or i will forget them
  5. Milk and Honey

    Sorry I haven't been contributing much lately, for some reason I have just not been feeling it and finding words to type have been difficult. Anyway, I posted this song for feedback over a year ago and have been working on it off and on since then. I don't know if I addresses the issues that were mentioned very well or not. I figured I'd go ahead and post it here for those of you who commented on the original to hear. For some reason I had trouble with a shaky voice that I have been unable to correct. I wish I could have found a way to change up the guitar track but I guess when you can't play an instrument you're gonna run into that problem. I think it is time for me to admit that i have taken this one as far as I am capable. https://soundcloud.com/user-259963172/milk-and-honey
  6. Sorry to have taken so long to thank you for your thumbs up on Like The Fool I Was. I've been away from the forum for a couple months....and am just now seeing the feedback. Glad you enjoyed it....and thanks for the compliments. I'm hoping to soon post a couple more songs I'm recording. 

  7. Ghosts & Alligators

    This sounds great. On my speakers every thing sounds really good and I really like the lyric changes. I really don't have any suggestions on changing anything. If there are issue to fix my ears are not trained well enough to hear them. So, I'll let the more qualified do that. Great job. You'll have to let me know if you ever put this out for purchase because I'll buy it.
  8. Shame

    Thanks, I would agree that the end needs something new but so far i have come up with nothing. Unfortunately I still don't play an instrument so finding just the right loop is sometimes challenging. I had thought of using beloved but nothing seemed to fit. I may try your suggestion. I also wanted to put a line in the second verse that simultaneously says David and Sin to parallel the line in the first verse's row my boat line. but I came up empty there as well. I don't' really want to get drawn into a debate about the content. but so you know my thinking in choosing the lyrics, the lines are there to paint a picture of the opposite perspectives of God view of my life and mine. The one I perceive he had planned out for me and the one I chose. Jeremiah 1:5 New International Version 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” I know God is specifically speaking to Jeremiah here, so I may be taking some liberty with the verse. Is it really that difficult to draw a parallel that if God knows and has a plan for one before birth that he may also God know and have a plan for others as well? I don't think so. I respect your opinion , and I truly look forward to reading your critiques of my work. I am trying to learn from you. But what I was hoping to hear was if you noticed any change from my normal vocal recordings as I have been trying to find the right combination since you had first mentioned them back on my milk and honey song. I thought I had done a better job here. but I am not sure.
  9. Shame

    I started messing around with my name meanings and came up with this one. I am not sure if I like how the backing vocals sound. I may just drop them altogether. Looking for mix advice but all comments are welcome. Shame Michael Williamson © 11/22/2017 Long before I was born you gave me my name do you know the man I became? Inside my mother’s womb you spoke of life adored how can I row my boat row my boat ashore? Am I Michael David who is like god? Am I Michael David after God’s own heart? Am I Michael David is that’s my name? Am I Michael David or do you call me Shame? Long before I was born you gave me my name but I chose sin just the same. Inside my mother’s womb you showed me who to be now all I see, is my treachery. Am I Michael David who is like god? Am I Michael David after God’s own heart? Am I Michael David is that’s my name? Am I Michael David or do you call me Shame? I know the man I am supposed to be but knowing don’t change reality so I rely on your mercy and your grace sets me free I’m Michael David who is like god? I’m Michael David after God’s own heart I’m Michael David the man you made me to be I’m Michael David only because you love me only because you love me (repeat to end)
  10. If You Knew

    I love country, you've great song that i am unqualified to critique. I just don't hear any issues. I don't to hijack your post, but I'd like to start a conversation, so those of us less experienced can learn. That said, I have a question about this. What is a thin sounding snare? The snare is coming through good to my ears. Maybe it is a mute point for me being that I don't play any instruments but I am trying to train my ears to what the more experienced musicians here keep saying. I have heard this many times before but I don't know what it means.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Forgive me

    Changes made.
  15. 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.
