Better Version of Myself


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Another one of my RPM tracks. Nothing very different about this one, just a nice slow alternative groove. I've had those opening guitar lines in my head for most of the past year - just finally got them on tape (or hard drive I guess).

Lyrics
Better Version of Myself

The sun climbs to the sky
I see the signs as they pass me by
It’s just another day before I get to you
There’s nothing left but a key
Just a shell that’s all that you left me
This empty house just can’t be real
I need to find you to say how I feel

I know we can be fine
Too many times have I crossed the line
I’ll put my pride on the shelve
And find a better version of myself

I’m sure that I’m real without you
I use to think I would die without you
This dream it can’t be real, will it ever end
All we need is just one more chance
We’ll find each other and make our last stance
Next time we’ll get it right, we’ll make it through the night.
I wont give up without a fight

I should have seen all the signs
I broke my promises too many times
I’ll put my pride on the shelve
And find a better version of myself

I’ll put my pride on the shelve
And find a better version of myself

Yeah this one has kindof a unique sound. Definitely a grungy alternative piece. I like recording the dueling guitar sound.

ON FIRE
You just keep pouring out great after great tune. Dynamic recording here. Great vox is stellar and could be up just a hair more.

Brilliant tune. You bring some attitude on this one.

vox
Yeah I'm still a little shy with the vocals. There are a few spots in the song that they are a little low. More of these to come.

great twin guitar opening
good intensity through out.

excellent guitars and vocals. I also need to point out the bass has a great mid tone. nicely stands out.

bass
I shoot for a pronounced mid tone on the bass so it's cool you can tell. Thanks for listening Vic.

digestible
Your tracks are always easy to get into, but come with some nice surprises too. I bet you won't expect this: I hear some Camper Van Beethoven in there. The guitars have the same character as the violins on various tracks from Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart, both in terms of phrasing and timbre. Enjoyed. Thanks.

You're right
I definitely didn't see that one coming. Damn cool connection though. Thanks for listening, I've put a lot more effort into my work recently.

it took a while to get the right guitar sound. The tuning on my guitar gets weird up in the high frets.

Massive groove...
... from the opening guitar on, that intro sound is so right on. It's hard to get that metallic sheen and retain musicality but you've nailed it. Great vocal performance and well recorded. I love it when a riff or sequence you've had in your head for ages ends up forming the basis for a really strong song. I'm gonna have to check out all your stuff now!

I've been moving way too much in the last few years and somehow eventually ended up in Texas. Funny how things work as I never saw myself here. I've been playing music in some fashion or another since I was 16 and love it. Its been great listening... [see more]
