A Curtain Call

-----------------
The roaring crowds of Wembley, the praises that they send - you lift them up with praise above it all.
The stars that you went after, the glory of the light - It's all over when the sunshine falls.

Take a look at yourself, and at your life.
What is it that you expect to find?
There is not a thing to gain at all,
When trading your whole life for a curtain call.

You trade your soul for a lifetime of wondering if you will die today or soon next year.
The stars you found around you are the reason why you lay in and wish that were not here.

Take a look at yourself, and at your life.
What is it that you expect to find?
There is not a thing to gain at all,
When trading your whole life for a curtain call.
-----------------


I'm working on the percussion right now. I'm using a mix of Tablas and Bongos. The guitars will be pretty much the same as the last song I posted.

Anyway, the song is basically about a lot of the stupidity seen in some musicians. Many have traded their souls for nothing but drugs and emptiness.

Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash, etc.

It's kinda of preachy. Like your looking down at people and telling how to live their life.

Well in passing I have to say on behalf of Johnny that he didn't know in those days the drugs were bad, he tried to get off them and he eventually did with the help of June once he knew. In Cash's time pharmacists just said "Buy my steroides, they'll cure your stage frieght" so tellig someone in a situation like his now's not really a good idea.

Back to the song it's not my own klind of thing (as I'm into heart filled country and Cubans I can't understand only) so I won't get into too much detail on my thoughts. It does help me think of images of celebreties like Amy winehouse that do this sort of thing kowing better but just want the praise, you've definately accomplished that meaning well.

I liked the groove you had with the bass and the drums. Bass seemed a little distorted though. I wasn't sure how the lyrics were going to fit and first but you seemed to pull it off.

Thanks, man.

I've been sick lately, so the vocals aren't exactly great.

Personally, I think the bass sounds quite dry, so I'm gonna have to work on that.

Update: http://media.putfile.com/A-Curtain-Call-preview-2

It's a preview of about half of the song.

If you can't hear the vocals, it's because I didn't lower the lead guitar's volume before I saved the file.

Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think.

That sucks. Putfile sucks.

I only use it because It's quick, and I don't know of any other site like it.

Here's my latest and last update until Thanksgivin is over: http://media.putfile.com/The-American-Brits---A-Curtain-Call-preview-3

The song is going to be about 4 minutes long.

I haven't looped the lead guitar for the second half of the song yet, and I still have to record the rest of the vocals. The full percussion for the second half isn't in there, but it will be in the next (and hopefully final) installment. Also, I haven't clipped down the drums, so they just keep going at the end of the song.

There is a hiss in the vocals at times, I know, but I have no idea how to get rid of it, so whatever.

After this, I'm gonna take a break from writing, and just record a bit. I'm gonna start teaching myself the piano, so maybe I'll do a little ballad. Haha...

God Bless.

with your mick to you have a CRT moniotr or is there an air intake close? that could cause the hiss.

I used to live in a trailer, and when i recorded on my 4 track if the air would kick on it would put a hiss on the track it sucked.

I'll give your tune a listen tonight

I just gave the tune another listen.

I liked the drums a lot better not so fakey (did you change it or is it all in my head?)

I like the way all the music is fit together so far, the rhythm, and melody, and drums. The bass still is a little distorted.

I think you need a bridge or a more dramatic change somewhere, i found myself loosing attention after a while.

The drums are all the same, actually.

I'll see about adding a bridge that leads into the solo.
