Description
A theme developing here, I promise other subjects will come up... For now, yet again another about a girl. As with everything while I'm learning to record, a skeletal work in progress. Just trying to get some feedback and advice!

Lyrics
Let the water carry me Far away from this place
Please don't bother trying to remember the smile on my face
Cos I've tried so hard and I can't forget your smile
So please don't fault me if I stand here and stare for a while

I know I've got a hard time of letting go
And there's some things I wish I didn't know
But I won't be there to see you turn and walk away
There's nothing left for me to say
Goodbye..

Again....
Massive potential. I think you would be better served as classifying these as open collaborations...you might get some bites to help develop and record the song. Honestly, If I were you I would be patient and complete the songwriting process, and then look for collab partners to help you realize your vision. There are plenty of cats on here that can really deliver...just my opinion.

Good idea
Appreciate that too. I didn't realize that was an option! So much too learn. Definitely will be working to round some of these songs out too. I have a lot of these "pieces" that I've just laid down since I got into garageband. And nowi there's macjams and all you guys!

Bruce vibe
Great start. Very well put together. Critical feedback: maybe reduce the echo. I think your voice would fit this music perfectly without it. Need a couple of more verses. I can hear bass and drums coming in just as your minute and a half ends.

Bruce,huh
Never thought of that but now I can hear it. I struggled a bit with the vocal, put the echo on cos it felt a bit flat. Still didn't feel quite right though. I'll change it up and repost after some other additions. Yes, I totally expect to hear this break into something more grand at the end of the last verse. More suggestions are welcome! Can't wait to here your stuff too!

Yeah my man it's your 'time'
Listen to these cats and figure your groove. I agree with the echo thing you do not need help. Just natural is your sound. Bad man you are my friend. Your ability to communicate is a natural less technology for you is a plus.

You've been so great since I've gotten on here. I've listened to a lot of your songs now and read a lot of your commentary. I agree with your sentiment that this is such a great place to gather and make "different" kinds of friends. In a way, I think there are a lot of people that are sharing more about themselves and who they truly are here than they do in real life.

Respectfully - ESRG

I can hardly
wait to hear this more fleshed out and a bit longer, with some more instruments. Thanks.

thank you, thank you, thank you
Char - saw that you commented on all of my submissions! Greatly appreciate you listening and your advice. I'll be working and trying out all of the different pieces of advice everyone has given! Also listened to one of your tunes - what a great, classic voice!

A very nice start
I'm not too strong on the technical aspects, but stylistically, I love what you've got here. Great chord progression and I love the lyrics you have. They do feel like they could be expanded a bit, but I wouldn't try to force it. And I actually like the effects on the vocals, but then again I'm a reverb junkie. But I think they give kind of a distant, lonesome feel.

The only technical thing I would suggest is if you don't have a pop screen for your vocal mic, it's definitely worth the investment. Other than that, I think it's a great tune and I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Thanks for listening brotha! Interesting to hear both sides of the reverb/ echo vocal. Guess it's more of a preference thing. Yes - the "P" and "B" sounds are really driving me nuts. How much to those screens run?

I will be checking out your stuff soon too!

I love the simple twangy guitar accompaniment and passionate vocal.

your voice has angst and very expressive. hope you can extend this and make a longer final form. i was really enjoying it and then it ended rather abruptly.

Wow
This is really great man. I'm glad that I dropped by. The simplicity (guitar and vocals) really makes this song very cool and unique.

Good stuff man.
