Lay Down



 Genre: Indie Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

Simon Pettiford of West Sussex, UK had this great backing track which consisted of Guitar and Drums. He asked the folks over at icomp for collaboration on this song called "Lay Down." So I decided to tackle the job and Wrote the lyrics called by the same name. His backing track was so cool I had to do it. I added the Vox, Bass and Lead Guitar.

Keep them coming!
You really seem comfortable going from one style to another Neal. I agree with you fully, Simon gave you an extremely polished backdrop to add your lyrics and vocal so all that adds up to one really fine track. I especially like your singing on this--I'm very fond of singers who can inject character and personality into their work and you do that awfully well! Thanks again for sharing, Michael

Chill and laid back
rock track here. Sort of a Dire Straits vibe goin on here but with your own uniqueness added to it. Very nice backer and the vocals complement it perfectly. I like the break at 1:20, very unexpected. Well done!

great laid back vibe
i like that riff in the verse, very cool, and that sunny little lead, together it makes for a great groove. I like that little kick break, sounds like a typewriter, and keeps the groove from getting old. also like the backups that come in on the second half of the tune, they add an entirely new dimension to the chorus. really nice tune, a pleasure to listen to it. I'd be happy to download it if i could :)

Nice one,all
the way,got a real good vibe and flow to it.

Someone has commented that it has a Dire Straits feel to it but I would not agree with that ...However there is a sound that is familiar but beggared if I can put a finger on it...How useful is that in a comment?! Never mind ,much enjoyed and would have D/Ld but no button 80(

Cheers Jarvoid

Lay Down
Reminds me of "Leaving Las Vegas", cool guitar lick. Like the rolling series of hammer ons in the outro. The vocal has a lot of personality, really good job on that.
