Description
play this LOUD. What I don't have in skill I like to make up for with volume. There's some bad notes occasionally, I don't know what happened. I think my guitar is broken or something ;-)

Lyrics
billy tried to get out of the city
till he got his cup of daily hate
i'd hate to tell 'im but i think he kinda likes it
and i'd advise you all to stay out of his way
all the boys that he put out of the business
shootin, swingin ....?
i'm amazed they didn't get him on the waterfront
the city isn't pretty when you don't bar the door
best i recall

friday nights it can get a little loco
i steel my mind so i don't really care
i watch em comin from the good side of the city
to feed the fire that burns down there
all along the waterfront you see them comin
just for a taste of what will kill their soul
it doesn't matter bout the shadows left behind them
when they got what they wanted they can go back home
but they want it all

eyes facin forward
hands on your ears
watch one more competition
it's gonna wipe away your fears
when the war's on your doorstep
and there's nothin left to keep
when you sow to the whirlwind
you know a storm is what you reap

Feter!
thanks for the listen. It's a blast playin it
there are two guitars- ones my Ibanez artcore and the other is a strat that I built that came back into my hands just yesterday. so I through it on a track. Strats are so much punchier than guitars with humbuckers. they cut through the clutter quite nicely.

Verrrry Cool Post.
Now this is just so good and so loose and so raw and real.I can hear and feel elements of Cleveland Ohio's finest trio "James Gang" in this piece.Whether intended or not I approve!Love your dueling guitar work in my headset.Even with those few minor bumps and bruises you mentioned,it rocks and just adds to the live vibe you've created.

Blessings,

Really different
from you. Killer arraignment. Nice fat sound. Small nit pick, wish the vocals were louder in spots. Reminds me of the stuff I used to listen to in high school. Enjoyed

thanks buck
yeah, I can't get away from the sounds I grew up on, all the new stuff doesn't sound right to my ears. I got a couple oddball tunes rattlin around my head that pop out on occasion.

"Sleep all day, out all night..."
Yeah, I hear those echoes of the James Gang...

And yes, this sounds terrific in the headphones. I think the mix is less clear over speakers. I agree with the comment that having the vocals a little more forward would be cool.

The guitar tones are great, great, great...

thanks ejh
man it's always cool to get feedback from a simpson's character. If I brought the vocals up then you'd really know that I was mumbling through most of the song. ;-)

pablatone said 3524 days ago (March 25th, 2008)
hey, thanks for the listen
the first lead is a semi hollow body on one side and me doubling the guitar part with my voice on the other, (all those years of air guitar came in handy) I ran the vocal through a envelope filter, and distortion, the rythym guitars are the hollow body, with a strat copy doubling it. It was a really cheap strat kit from Saga but strats just seem to sound great no matter what you do to them. And they have such an incredible presence in the mix too.

I love a guitar driven tune. This has lots of strong funky riffs. Ecelent jam my friend.
The guitar break is cool!
The vocal part of the tune rocks real nice.

hey there Kharma
I'm glad you enjoyed this.
yeah that's all me, I'm mean I used drum loops and penciled in the bass but yeah.
The funny thing about the mix is that I red lined almost everything- so it shouldn't sound good right? I also used logic's ultimate compressor on just about everything, and I copied the drum tracks 3 or 4 times, then gave the kick it's own track, then the snare, then the hi hat, etc... by deleting everything but that instrument.

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
