It's been such a long time since posting. I have a number of tracks I have been holding up my sleeve because I like to share once I find them further along but I thought I'd share this one with you guys.
It's a peppy track, and I think it has some real potential possibly.
As always share any thoughts, suggestions, critiques etc...
Another great track, Cam! Very poppy. I especially like the guitar syncopation in the choruses. When the middle eight started up before the solo, I got excited, thinking it was going to modulate. Nice tight ending too. Lovely!
Nice song and full of energy throughout. This might be killing the mood a little but I was imagining that it would be nice to have some progressive vocals where it would quiet down and then build back up to a powerful chorus at different points in the song. I felt like my ears were getting tired towards the end from almost too much in the vocal department from beginning to end. Yes, this song has lots of potential and could be looked at in different ways. I was just stating one of the ways I think it could improve but that doesn't mean its the right choice either.
The modulation bit was fun to do. I hummed and hawed over that section for a long time. See I am referencing loosely that old pop tune Dizzy by Tommy Roe I believe it was which has modulations through out the entire song. I reference it in the lyric "Dizzy just like that song, like a whirl pool goes on and on". This chromatic syncopations are neat, I definitely smiled when that came out of my hands lol.
That's a good suggestion Stan, I definitely get where your coming from and I do that a lot in songs. It's tricky because you want the song to take a journey but at the same time it might be nice to have a quick paced no holding back track on the album too. I'll think that one over for sure and try some stuff out at some point. There is options like I could even do a half chorus after verse 1 as to not make it too long and then add a sort of slower break down maybe riffing on the spin me out line or something... Ya might have to play with that.
I always appreciate the thoughts and ideas. Thanks Mike and Stan.
