Description
Just a very simple acoustic song. Wrote this probably sometime in the late 90s. This version was something put together on the spot last week! Played this song for years in the acoustic 2 piece. Just a mellow little ditty!!

Lyrics
Verse 1:

Show me what you've found
Tell me whats all around
Give me a warning sign
Tell me its alright x2!

Chorus:

Tell me when
I can come aboard
Your waterfall
(repeat)!

Verse 2:

I can see whats meant to be
You can be the other way
Look at what we've done
Gotta be on the run x2

Chorus!

Verse 3:

Give me whatever I want
Make it hard to be adored
Living fast you're an outcast
Gotta be the underclass x2

Chorus

I like the simplicity of the lyrics. Nice vocal. Maybe a little less reverb and delay would help make the lyrics a bit more clear. Nice guitar fills.

Andrew..
.. Thankyou very much for the comment. I have problems with my interface for vocal so have to put it through a pedal (wierd I know) and even with the level turned right down I seem to be getting a little delay. I am working hard to sort this out! Thanks very much for the feedback!

B side
of the first single I ever bought!! Rubber Bullets by 10cc, Waterfall was the B side. Nice song, the clarity of the overdubed guitar sounds much greater than than the first guitar and vocal, might want to tweak the treble a bit on the first guitar to help balance them both a little better.Cheers mark Oh and ps although it's really hard to resist, hold back your songs in the first few months and give people a chance to come to them before you post another if you want to pick up plenty of comments.

Thankyou..
.. for the feedback and constructive criticism is always good although both guitar parts were recorded using the same guitar!! So maybe need to tweak it in the actual recording. Though this shouldnt be a cover (I hope not anyway!!) otherwise that is just spooky!

jiguma said 2381 days ago (January 13th, 2011)
Welcome to MJ Neil!
I like this song - sounds like an acoustic song that the Gallagher brothers might have made (when they were talking). As a first(ish) post, it sounds good - there are things that you will pick up as you move along at MJ. On this one, I'd suggest a little more panning of the guitars so you set up more of a "sound stage" - they both seem very close to the middle. Panning gives a song depth as well as width, and can really improve the listening experience.
I'll try to get to your other songs.
Nice post - you're going to fit in here just fine!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

hi neil and welcome to macjams. this is a really atmospheric tune that could really sail if you had someone to bring it out for you on the technical side. the chorus lyric is excellent (once i had convinced myself it had nothing to do with that gallagher wanker),
and your vocal delivery is easy and intimate. the second guitar licks complement the whole perfectly.

hackneybloke!!
Thanks so much for the comment glad you like the song! I am weak on the technical/mixing side of things. Unfortunately the software I have is very basic so working hard to remedy a few things. Over time I will upgrade my software and hopefully learn how to get a more polished sound. Catch you later Neil

Commanding voice.
I swear I left a comment on this. DanseLeviat... how ever you spell it... referenced Pink Floyd. I'm hearing more Roy Harper, a 70s contemp of Floyd. But I'm also hearing U.S.-based Americana and even a touch of Doby Gray's "Drift Away!" Bug FORGET those references. Your guitars are great and your voice is commanding here. Good for you and the recognition you get on this page.
