Description
This song pretty much lives up to the title. I'm trying to dial in some new gear. It's been brutal so far.

Lyrics
This Song Sucks

You say your momma won’t approve
That she really dislikes the groove
She says you’re going to freakin’ move
What’s that going to prove?
Nothing about it makes you smile
It won’t make you want to stay awhile
It’ll make you want to leave the room
You won’t be able to leave too soon

Chorus
You’ll wish the song had never came up
You’ll tell me just how it sucks
Your momma will surely agree
Pointing her bony finger at me
This won’t even turn you on
It won’t be your favorite song
It’ll never be worth a buck
Because you know baby this song sucks

You’ll wish it never makes the grade
That it will never ever get played
You’ll tear up the lyrics sheet
Throw the paper at my feet
If I could I’d write the song
The one that does no wrong
The one that makes you want to dance
Makes you want to sing and prance

chorus

This song sucks makes you want to frown
This song sucks sung like a clown
This song sucks stops you in your tracks
This song sucks want your money back

It ain’t so pretty and it ain’t so fine
Doesn’t care almost all the time
Makes the day just a little worse
Feels like a tiny curse
If this was on a radio station
You wouldn’t even pay attention
You’d change the channel as fast as you can
Play a song you can understand

The guitar is played out of tune
The lead ends up a little too soon
The rhythm sucks and the rhymes are off
Turn your head and give a cough
Fasteddie just knows one way
He aint gonna save the day
He’s just gonna pass the buck
‘Cause you know baby this song sucks

Sorry mate
But I take great pleasure in telling you that in fact you are wrong.
This song doesn't suck. It's great actually! Great guitar tone and the vocal delivery is cool. The clashing chords at the start of the chorus are superb and the whole thing has a Motorhead feel to me.

If you're going to improve it further then I can't wait to hear it then!

I dunno if I'm going to do too much more with this. I even really debated posting it. There are some problems that nothing short of rewriting the entire song will fix.

I figured out mic placement for the new mic after making this song. I'm getting even better crunch now.

The guitar tone was pretty lucky. My mic placement wasn't optimal on this one. I think that I have that dialed in now. Kind of post song.

crissew said 2563 days ago (October 13th, 2010)
LOL
it has been that tough? How is that sterling audio mic? I am loving my octavamod. It is so far superior to my other mic it is ridiculous. My other mic is collecting dust.

I like this. Sounds great! Your voice sounds warmer to me on this. The tubes are helping. Bass guitar sounds great too. Your guitar tone has always been great. Love that crunch at 2:25 WOW. That bass sounds HUGE there.

fasteddie said 2563 days ago (October 13th, 2010)
The
ST mic is great for micing the guitar. The tube adds a natural resonance to the guitar signal that is really killer. I have figured out the best mic placement for it now. (After this song) of course. It is nice for vocals too but I do believe that I will get the octavomod mic as well. I think that having options works better. The UA amp is killer for bass; I'll have to do some bass solo stuff to really let that be heard. It's unbelievable how good it sounds with the active pickups. My next song really gets that better dialed in as well.

I'm also looking at getting a solid state Neve for amping guitar. The UA is too muddy for guitar signals. Great for vox and bass though.

Thanks for having a listen. This song was done quickly just to really get a feel for the new pre and mic.

crissew said 2562 days ago (October 14th, 2010)
wow
you are dropping some serious coinage on your gear. May as well have gone and gotten the Avalon if you are needing a second pre anyway. Food for thought. The Octavamod will give a mid heavy Neumann type sound. Perfect for my voice, my vocal clarity went off the charts once I got the Oktavamod and the Apogee ONE. BTW, my mic only has the standard mod, have to send it out in 2 weeks to get the final mod done (electronics) to it. Tough to beat it for $600. No mic I have seen is even close for that price range.

fasteddie said 2562 days ago (October 14th, 2010)
I will
probably get another pre and mic some time soon. Either the Avalon 737 or a Neve 5015. I'll probably order the Octavamod in a couple weeks. I've noticed the quality in your recordings lately is exceptionally great. I need to find a pre-mic combo that will work for my guitar cabs. That's part of the reason why I may go for a solid state pre like the Neve first. The tube pres make a guitar tube amp just a bit too muddy.

Well, I already have a copy of this song & love it. And, it so does NOT suck. Your guitar playing is killer, it's not out of tune either, ha! Great vocals, and what can I say about the lyrics? They're freakin' funny as hec, very creative.

Thanks Scott
for the kind words.

I got a new mic and a really great pre. This song was mostly just an experiment on finding the sweet spot settings for the new gear. I found the bass. I'm getting close on vocals. I'll need another pre for the guitars... this one is too muddy for that signal.

I found some better toms for the drum programmer. The drums will sound better in the next one. BUT, the programmed drums don't even touch the real thing. You know that when the right song comes up I'll be hitting you up for your skills again. Perhaps really soon.

Nice to see you here and posting songs more regularly Scott!

No it doesn't. You're getting great tone, cool riffage. The tube mic is the new piece of gear? Vocs are sounding good here too.

fasteddie said 2562 days ago (October 14th, 2010)
Yes
the tube mic and the UA preamp are both new. It is taking a couple trys with each to dial them in. It's coming along though.

The tube mic is pretty cool. It adds a little more warmth to the signal. It's very soubtle but I like the character a lot.

leading-edge--awry
the fact that you're not singing in the
high tenor range here - is really a good supplemental asset
in my opinion - firey - crooked -
this long rebellious tritone vocal harmony with fat good-quality-slamming-bass, chugging guitar, with cultured relaxed singing is just the spice for making it top-shelf-awry.
my fingers are not sick of typing.
not so matter-of-fact in nature - and this is what I happen to like.

fasteddie said 2556 days ago (October 19th, 2010)
Thanks!
brutal slice! That's great!

I play through a Mesa Boogie 5/50 Express 2X12 amp set on 5W. It's still pretty loud at 5W and I have to use the pad on mic.

I also record the amp with a Sterling audio tube mic which is a great mic for this cabinet. The extra tube seems to have a nice resonance with the boogie tubes.

I've just started using a Universal Audio LA 610 MkII preamp while recording the guitars which is giving the amp sound a full rich glassy feel to it. I didn't use that amp for guitars on this song but I will be using that setup in future songs. The crunch from that setup is unreal it has just taken me a while to get used to the preamp to find the sweet spot.

Thanks for the listen.

i like the intro. as on power blow....your vocal delivery has improved...but you've still got lazy lyrics in there that sound clunky. it's just laziness....spend more time on getting lyrics that scan properly...it makes all the difference. you're getting there. what happened to the departure into folk acoustic? you're obviously doing too much coke that you've stolen from work. love you man.
