Description
Another song I found in Dirge K's project files, that I took and arranged and produced and finished. Once again we witness the dark intense world that was Dige K.

Lyrics
Walking through the destitutes,
I see I’ve got a friend in me,
I realise the delta stream has been trailing at my feet.

-Chorus-
I’m coming home,
Runnin’ all the way,
I’m coming home.

I had a friend, let’s call her Phoenix,
She looked up like she’d seen a ghost,
The shock had set in before I could explain,that I was coming home.

-Chorus-

Wherever I’m not wanted,
That’s where I want to be.
The scream-filled memories
Looking back, seem to make for
a homely smokescreen,
I’m coming home

-Lead-
-Chorus-

Through my sojourn I wonder how
my return will spin this carousel,
At least they’ll know, I’ve learned alone how to abuse myself,

-Chorus- x2

nice track...enjoyed it very much....i thought that the lead guitar fought the vocals quite a bit...I think in a true blues tune, the call and response of vocal and guitar would work better here. as it is it's a call and call thing. But the playing is very nice, GREAT lyrics and soulful delivery by the singer. Terrific big drums...the effort put in shows.

congrats to all on a nice track

re:moody
Most of it is call and response. Sometimes they are together, which I did purposely, but it could be a mix thing. Maybe I need to back the guitar down a little. Good feedback thanks.

re:mix
Probably a good example of why it's a good idea to hand off mix to someone who didn't perform on the track. Not always possible though. And yes I probably needed to alternate more. I may go back in and work on that. You have me taking another look at this...

i believe
that's what this process is about...we tey and give honest feedback and sometimes it's very helpful..sometimes it's a pain in the ass!

I wouldnt replay the guitars, cuz they are very well played...maybe just back them off.

or you can do exactly what you feel like and ignore me completely...

great track man....it is very hard to get soul out of a computer...but this is a great job at it.

software?

re:i believe
I will indeed re visit this, but I am inclined to go with mix, as most of it is indeed call and response. Near the end I purposely had the vocals and the guitar kinda co-riffing. But i can see whee you'd say it's stepping on the vocals. She is pretty much in the chorus or refain vocally in the end so I look at it that she is basically taking a rhythmic posture, not like the verses. Repeating herself, so I felt like there was room for the guitar to let loose under her, but I do acknowledge what you've said about this. I might re-work the guitar arrangement and thin it out but I purposely let it get full as a dynamic effect. Now whether or not that actually worked is another matter. I would probably try mix first and if I still got the same type of feedback I would have to agree and relent. I do hear ya, and I acknowledge the possibility that I overdid the lead arrangement. It's one thing I'm constantly analyzing in my arrangements, and so you feedback is very valued. There is a thin line and I may very well have crossed it. If it is necessary for me to explain what my intent was, then indeed it didn't work and your feedback is so noted. I am leaning toward agreeing with you, but I am not real sure about how to fix it. I have ideas, but we'll see. Hoping mix helps it. Thanks for the very helpful feedback! I sure don't want to step on that lovely voice!

re:software?
Oh sorry, forgot to answer you question. I am a PC user, and I use Cakewalk Sonar, with vaious VST and mastering plugins. I think I used Ozone Isotope for mastering this one. I also use several Sony Products. Acid Po which is like your garage band, Vegas Video, and Sony Soundforge. I love Sony products but my main mixing console is on Cakewalk Sonar. I have a 10 channel digital sound card for close micing my drums and it feeds into Sonar. I'm here for the music and interaction, not the platform. Really there doesn't seem to be any problems swapping datafiles as I've collaborated on songs with Anne (Sisters), Stephen Robb, and Michael House from hee with no problems. I'd love to have a Mac but I have money tied up in PC bigtime. Someday I will take the plunge and have both. I'm here for the people, and most are very good to me.

Typos
Sorry for the typos folks. I have a usb wireless keyboard hooked to my notebook up here in my living room, and the "R" key often doesn't get mashed hard enough. I'll get a new one soon, and shoot this one and put it out of it's misery! LOL

it's a great tune
If you wanted to partly address Ziti's issue, you could use some level automation on the lead in some spots to take it to the back a little during the vocals.

Sounds great, though.

re:it's a great tune
Sonar does indeed have level automation. I will put it to use. Good suggestion! Thanks...

This song has a great feel. I like the guitar riffs, but like others I think they could roll back a little when the vocals are in action. Also, I would love to hear the organ up a bit more in the mix.

Another great vocal
I wish I could have half the vocal talent she had. Sad. A really nice job all around on this one. I can see ziti's point about the guitar. I am not sure if it is the volume that is the issue or the fact that it is stepping on some of the vocal frequencies that is the issue. You may be able to get it off the vocal without changing volume. Just carving out the vocal sweet spot may do it and give more balance to the song.
