Description
I wrote this song last summer of 1993 as part of our program presentation during our university graduation ball. I asked my classmate, shelly Marie tan nerri, from my marketing subjects to sing this song. Though I’m not really on ballad type of songs, I was so challenged that time to write a song that will fit on that occasion, farewell but not goodbye type of theme… This song is best done in piano, but I can’t really play piano, thus, as usual, it’s done in electric. Drums and percussions (free loops only) are the only software instruments.

A good start
the chord progression reminds me of Freebird - no bad thing and you've started to craft your own melody over the top. The production isn't bad. You have a good basic mix, and the drums are working well - dynamic and well spaced.

Things to think about:

1. Some of you guitar playing is a little out of time (especially the lead breaks) and the bass at times is a little laboured. Just try to tighten things up and don't settle for 'okay is good enough'.

2. Similarly your vocal is alittle out of tune in places. You've got a good vocal level and there's a good melody, but you just need to tighten things up a little. Maybe a few more takes and then select the better ones - it's hard but has to be done:-))

3. I think the song is too long. It either needs to be (at least) two minutes shorter or it needs a captivating middle eight/bridge/solo to keep the listener interested.

Hope you don't mind the (hopefully) constructive remarks. After recent forum discussions I'm trying to avoid just saying "yeah great well done". You have a nice start to a song here, but I think it needs some work to lif it up a few rungs!

All the best,
Phil

a good start
Thanks for taking time for the very detailed comments. I will work next time bearing in mind the "good is not enough" if time will allow me then. Hoping that I will get the "proper song" that we all aspire for.

really like where you're going with this tune. I do agree with dolby when he talks about the vocals. Reason being is I can hear strong vocals in certain places. Sometimes I have to lay down a full take of vocals and then go back line for line and get the best I can. It's frustrating, believe me, but the final product comes out so much more better. That being said, it think this song is really good. There's loads of melody.

vocals
I just usually took 2 vocals sets and just select the one I like. Maybe I can work on panning the vocals well. By the way, how can you eliminate the hum in guitar? it took me quite some time to reduce the hum (not ridding it out) but the guitar sustain is also compromised.

happy to hear that you like the melody, specially from a person who has a very good control on guitar melody.

thanks for passing by and for the very kind comments, yes all my recording here were completed in the laundry room.Ang layo naman ng mix ko sa yo no. I am planning to buy a good headphone monitor, maybe, akg240s. Maybe, next time, I can improve more on my mix. O, akala ko ba collaborate tayo? saan na ang sample track mo? regards
