Description
My first garageband creation - a lot of fun messing about with the sounds and settings. A dancey little number...

I have been really impressed by how well some of the songs on this site are produced. Any advice would be appreciated.

Liar! Liar! You won't ensnare us!!! ;O)

Great first track, Spruce! A catchy little number. Good
music and interesting which really get the listener
thinking about things.

The tracks starts well, has a good middle and ends well,
but something's missing...

Keep everything you've already got and try adding a
middle section to it which sounds quite different from the
rest of the song (but still fits the style of the song) and
contains some different lyrics in this new section.

This would break up the song and make it more
interesting for the listener. At the moment, it's a little too
samey all the way through, although I can hear that you
are making subtle changes all the way through and they
work well.

I'm another newbie, so please check out my only effort to
date and let me know how I could improve it.

Looking forward to the next one! :O)

Interesting Lyrics
Thanks for the good advice! There are some different samples that I could use in
a break - just need to make it sound similar.... watch out for a remix.

Catchy!
Wanted to listen to this over and over...it's original and nicely
put together. An excellent first GB attempt! The lyrics are
cool, but I'm sure there are a few fuddy-duddies that won't
like them...but what the hell!

Catchy!
Thanks Ben! I'm glad you like it!
(have I seen you somewhere before?)

Ben,

I couldn't agree more. You're right on target. And adorable.

Interesting mix of sounds and vocals
Yes this is an interesting little track, just as i was thinking
'I wish the track was louder' it came crashing in about
halfway through. I like those vocal samples you use. If this
is your first attempt at GB then it is an accomplished one!

Fantastic!
What a great song! Very creative and catchy. I hope there are more to come!
SlimGirlFat said 5130 days ago (May 30th, 2005)
Cool!
Love the vox and effects.
For a first track this is very good, tight production and
arrangement, I do think it could get some variation in
there, esp on the beats.
Very Gary Numan sound. but I like it.
Cool one.
lets have more then!!!

Cool!
Thanks for the feedback - I agree that the beat needs the most work. I've been
working on a new little thing all day - what a great way to spend a bank
holiday...

Love the samples
The old movie samples really make this song sparkle for
me. Some great lines with dramatic reads.

Keep up the good work!

Well done!
This is awsome for your first GB experience. It sounds as
though you have quite a knack for production, cause it's
quite well done I must say. MY first song, which I never
posted....anywhere EVER...wasn't even close to this one.
Congrats, and keep 'em coming!!

top notch
great sounds & FX. the production on this is just about
perfect. the front end drags a little, but kicks in nicely. i
would like to hear it end on some faster notes. great tune

Nice 1st, 2nd or 10th effort...
Can't believe this is a first attempt. This means that
you will have great stuff to look forward to. Again,
you lifted my energy level up another positive notch.

Nice 1st, 2nd or 10th effort...
Thanks for another very appreciated comment - It is honestly my first attempt
with GarageBand. I have a keyboard (Yamaha CS1X) and a little sequencer that
I've had for years, but I've never used a software sequencer/synth. I swear I'm
not trying to score some extra points!
