Test Soul

Description
This is a test song. The first time I've tried to sing and my first song up with garageband. Please leave criticism so I know what I can do to make it better. I'm not sure I'm cutout for singing :P the lyrics just came all at once so I didn't analyze them at all. They're probably lame but what ya gonna do.

I used a Shure SM57 to record the guitar amp (Peavy Bandit 112), bass amp (Peavy Microbass), and vocals. The drums are garageband. The guitar is a two hundred dollar Cort. The bass (shown in picture) is home made and borrowed from fellow macjammer Elevator_Funk.

Lyrics
I've been thinking,
about you
what am I gonna do

we've been talking now
about how
we're gonna make this...feel new

we've been on the road
to where I don't know
whether we're gonna stop...or go

you've got me strapped in
I don't know how to begin
to untie the knots...of you

you come home late at night
poised and ready to fight
you can't say that's not...true

cool man....
It sounded way better than I expected, and I like the tone of your voice. For your first song ever with vocals it's not too bad, you'll only get better. Keep doing it. You should re-record the guitar part with the 57 right next to the amp so that it doesn't pick up so much of the room noise also turn up the bass, and then double your vocals. Nice one.

thanks...
you must have thought it was gonna be really bad :) if it exceeded expectations. i do plan on recording everything again to make it all tighter. you'll have to tell me what doubling the vocals is. it sounds fairly self explanatory.

I know...
...how you feel about singing. I just started again after a couple of decade's layoff...

Play what you feel and what you think. That's all that matters. You've got a good voice, btw. Good rockin' tune.

I know nothing
about garageband so am not able to offer any help there. For a first it sounds good to me. I keep trying to sing as well. People say I am getting better. Weather I am or not I just keep on doing it, so keep on man you have a good voice. So for a whole lot of firsts you got a fine track. Thanks
