    Maybe Rock isn't dead

    Is the drummer a girl or a boy? I don't really know. If it's a girl...it's even cooler.

    Maybe Rock isn't dead

    This kid is 8 years old...and loves Zep...there is hope.

    Gary, The best decision you made with this song is to get a great singer to deliver it. The production is '70's Nashville worthy (very good)....a "Silver Threads" type of song and may have been a hit in that era. I happen to like that genre. I don't know what your intentions are with the song... but there are probably many sync opportunities available for it. The blue pencil metaphor might be a little obscure for younger listeners, now that everything is digital...but I don't think you were trying to appeal millenials. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/blue-pencil. Truthfully, your singer could be singing from the phone book, and I'd still like the tune. Nice job, Chaz

    The Nearly Man

    Daryl, Nicely done.... Great production and performances, and I can relate the lyrics...hope it's not somewhat autobiographical. Chaz

    Mortal Soul killed in accident.

    Really sorry to hear this. I liked Mark very much. He will be missed. Chaz
  6. Good stuff Mike. I would like to add another suggestion....keep intros short, or non-existent....don't need a minute of three boring chords. Chaz

    Gotta remember...this was the 60's...so they were probably using a 4 track, and had to sing this live....nothing like that happens today.

    If you think you can sing harmony...listen to this acapella version of a Beach Boy song. I've heard the song many times, but had no idea how intricate it was. I can never tell if Brian or Carl is sing the lead. Check it out. http://twistedsifter.com/videos/beach-boys-wouldnt-it-be-nice-acapella/ Chaz

    Some Day

    Sorry for the late reply. Barney: I haven't quite given up...thanks. Kook: It took a lot of takes to get my vocals right...Thanks for noticing. s.I.: The words are on Soundcloud...thanks for listening. Hank: I used an electric 12-string, and 6 six...with some chorus. Thanks to all for listening and commenting. Chaz

    Some Day

    I wrote this song about a year ago, and this is a brand new recording...sadly somewhat auto- biographical. ANY feedback is welcomed...especially the mix...Reaper's killing me. The words are on Soundcloud. Thanks in advance. Chaz https://soundcloud.com/charles-silhan/some-day
  11. An extremely good answer Mike...just wonder why a songwriter would ask it.

    Life Goes On

    Nice effort... very good production...but man, 5 minutes of a C and F chord is just too much for my short attention span. If the chorus were not labeled as such, I would never have known it was...pretty much the same melody, words, and certainly the chords. Throw in an A minor or a d minor...even a G chord...some kind of change in the changes. I'm "looking back," and HEARING the same thing. I know you're new here, and I apologize for being so critical...but you did ask for feedback. I think the song has potential...but not in its current form. Sorry Dude, Chaz
  13. It's a real rush for me to hear someone adding to one of my songs. Paul has invented a new genre...Hick-Hop Funk. Hat's off to Paul. BTW David, I would have won the duel. Chaz

    Here's something very alien to the site. I wrote a JAZZ song for a TAXI opp. No way anyone could sing this....crazy changes https://soundcloud.com/charles-silhan/cheese-021116

    Micky...very kind words...thanks man. Cap: I'm not sure how to get to the hook sooner without making the song much longer. Maybe you should produce this, and throw in some killer guitar licks. I did shouts on a recent song I posted here...I was at a party and got 20 people to shout the chorus. It was fun. Thanks for listeneing Chaz
