Description
I've been messing around playing guitar from time to time... I came up with some progressions and thought maybe I should lay down some tracks since I haven't posted in a while on macjams. I found the beginnings of some lyrics I had jotted on my iPhone and manipulated them to where they would fit. I don't know who I was writing about.

Please forgive me for not being very active here on MJ and I apologize to you for using you as a venue to post my music too.

Thanks for dropping by and listening... your comments are always welcome.

Lyrics
What a wretched soul who wants the right to be
Lives a fools life unknown where there's a tragedy...

Folds the truth and never wants to see
And he's taken by himself living in this full blown dream...

He's fallen far too deep
He's fallen just fallen he's fallen in a stream...

He's fallen far too deep
He's fallen just fallen he's fallen in a stream...

Dragging you down
Anchors thrown down
He's fallen far too deep
He's fallen just fallen he's fallen in a stream...

Swampy sound to start it off, leads nicely into the laid back vocal. I like the fills you're playing. Solid groove. It all works!

Good one, John - I like they way the chord progression has a "falling" feel to it, goes with the lyrical theme

I was playing this too a friend of mine and started to chant "falling" on the chorus and he said... I like it when you sing that there... so it is. Thanks as always for taking a listen, your latest is the greatest.

Good to hear a new one from you John! I love the mix right out of the gate, the guitars sound great, drums and bass have a nice fluid thing going on. Lyrics are thoughtful and the chorus sounds really good. Nice hook. Heck! nice post!

Special thanks to you for dropping by. I always think about you when it comes to a bass line. I have to admit I midi cheated on that track and should have looked you up. It's just easier and quicker that way sometimes. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.

Great tone on the axe as usual. Really dig the progression. I can identify with the lack of participation at MJ. Life just gets in the way of the fun, damn it!

very cool guitar tones. may i ask what amp sims you use (if you're using a sim, that is)? strong melody as expected, so some things are just worth waiting for. Gray/Grey is my all time favorite, but this comes pretty damned close. got it.

I have several sims available but I always prefer to use the pedal board and amp sim in Logic Pro, usually the boutique/pawn/British rigs. I like the rythm to break up just a bit and then something more modern with a fat tone on the leads. If you have logic I would be more than happy to send you the settings. Thanks so much for the encouragement.

This really flows. Nice thick guitar sounds work well with your smooth understated vocal delivery. Good work with the drum programming. Really like the jump on the cymbal hits after around 1:40 and elsewhere. Don't hear that too often at MJ. And those lyrics are some serious business. No apologies are necessary when you can post good music like this.

The drums are usually hit and miss. I usually break up drum tracks and piece them together so really I can't take too much credit. I use EZ Drummer kits and bus the channel to a logic preset group and usually bus the bass with the drums. Thanks for the review, I really like what you did with brother Harold's latest tune.

i really dig the what you came up with. the rhythm guitar work is excellent. of course the leads are great as well.

i think it's the ease of how well you played this: guitars, bass & vocals that gels into a classic rocker

It always adds a nice touch when you layer guitar tracks. A lot of times I attempt to do one guitar track, the way it would be done in a three or four piece band. It usually sounds a bit thin that way and it's nice to have the luxury of a DAW to compose music. Thanks as always for your valuable reviews.

Guitar's the treat, John...
You managed, I think, to hit that good spot where it sounds tight but also loose, and I like how the guitar parts play against the drums...The rhythm bits and lead bits sort of cross over into each other's territory in a nice way...It has a kind of spiraling up while spiraling down quality to it..

If there's a part that I could toss out as my nitpick, it would be that I'd like to hear that vocal get a touch more of that same looseness, and maybe a hint of air in the mix, so it stands out in the very powerful instrumental track a little more...

Good one...

Thanks for tapping in and for the valuable advise. I believe you meant the vocals needed to sound natural to the music and I appreciate the way you portrayed it. Next tIme around I should insist a little more effort. Always a highlight to read your reviews.

tighto!
Your progressions remind me of Nirvana in some places, a very cool feel. I love the lead, would love to hear an octaver on it, and a bit more of a metallic overdrive.

Octaver
Really, I've rarely used one. Been trying to stick to tube saturation, delay/reverb and overdrive. Thanks for the input and I appreciate you taking a listen.
