Lyrics
I'm a lost soul drifting and I don't know where I’ve been.
Everyday is like a blur like something I cant see.
I need help to find my soul oh please help me
lost in a land of old , drifting, drifting
have I sold my soul, drifting drifting


I’ve been down many roads trying to find my own,
Trying to find a way to be – but not easy.
I sometimes want to end it all but that's not the way to go

lost in a land of old , drifting, drifting
have I sold my soul, drifting drifting

Driftings become a way of life – for me – can you see?
If I new better Id do that thing – I should be.
I want be and live alive – but instead Im doing time - you see!


lost in a land of old , drifting, drifting
have I sold my soul, drifting drifting

Im a lost soul drifting and I don't know where I’ve been.
Everyday is like a blur like something I cant see.
I need help to find my soul oh please help me
lost in a land of old , drifting, drifting
have I sold my soul, drifting drifting

Welcome to MJ Michael!
This sounds good considering your recording situation. I hear 3 part harmonies and further development of the instrumental tracks, but overall I hear a really interesting bluesy song with a good vocalist and a good guitarist. Reminds me a little of something Steve Miller might do. As you get more confident with GB and recording in the "home studio" I expect to hear some really good tunes from you. This could get a great lift just by tweaking things before bouncing to aif/mp3. Is there a bass track in there? Difficult to hear one on my phones.

Excellent potential in this context.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Hi Neil
Thanks for your very kind words! And you're from Oz! I used a very small guitar amp for both bass and guitar. You were spot on with the three part harmonies!
I just looked at your bio and can see you have a hell of a lot more experience than me and some damn good songs! My god! All I can say is I'm flattered by your comments.

Thanks a heap!

I suspect that if there's another MJ Reunion Fest on next year that you'll want to re-do this for the celebrations. Normally I'd offer to play around with this, but I'm just too busy at the moment. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with next.

Nice
The main guitar line sort of reminds me of Aerosmith's Walk This Way! The bass sounds pretty good in my headphones, just bring it up a little bit. I think I would like to hear a bit less reverb on the vocals so they sort of gel with the other instruments better. I really like the vocals and the vocal harmonies. This is a great first post from you. Looking forward to hearing more!

Hi Adam
Yes I do like Aerosmith. Very apt as I love 'walk this way'. I'm glad you like my song.

Thanks for the feedback!

Impressive
Impressive guitar and vocal performance. The recording is not the cleanest, or the mix isn't, but I can hear a lot of potential with this song. Nice groove. Nice song. /Mikki

Thanks for the support. Yes I'm a very lazy bugger.I should work on the mix but I don't have the gear . In time I will get the essentials (a recording mic etc). At the moment I just make songs with very minimal equipment and only garage band.

I appreciate the support

Dig it!
You got some great fingers there! You may be drifting, but maybe you've found a home. Very good groove, something I 'd love to play with on a mixing board. Welcome.

Hi Joe
You are very kind. It does a need a good mix. When I get time I will get something to record with other than my imacs inbuilt mic. As far as a home goes I think I'm still searching!

Thanks

Okay,
so I have to listen to your stuff since I just found you. Great ideas here. I can see you tweaking this until it is a classic piece. Thanks.
