BELLS & WHISTLES
©2010 Ray Kainz

between you me and the gatepost
beware greeks bearing gifts
and the best of britsh pot luck to you

beanfest best in the beer garden
beard the lion in his den
ya better beat a hasty retreat baby
ya better beat... ya better beat it

bells and whistles
below the belt
below the salt
before the flood
believe that
all one's geese are swan

break the ice break the bank
bringing home all the buttered bacon
by and large and by hook or crook

bite the bullet bite the dust
bite the bloody hand that beats me
ya better blaze a trail bible black sheep

so far so good
i like what you have got so far. i wouldn't touch the chorus. personally, i could hear some chiming electric guitars going into the verses here and there.

chorus won't be touched
chiming electrics sprinkled in the verses? might not be a bad idea and would also help with the issue hackneybloke brings up. thanks for listening

hey ray
finally...the demi-god has returned. excellent production. the chorus has a very catchy hook and the middle instrumental bits are great. however, i found the verse not varied enough...especially at the beginning.

vs
the not varied enough verses, i was afraid of that. The verses are kinda long and musically repetitive and I'm singing all subdued - all makes a great recipe for losing the listener. well, i'm sure i'll think of something to remedy the situation. Thanks for your thoughts Julian.

Pro quality Ray! For some reason the only thing that bugs me are the cymbal crashes, especially the one panned right. I guess I want it to sound more brighter and not panned so far out. Killer chorus. Super vocal delivery (no auto-tune here)! Overall well done sir!

damn cymbal
now that you mention it, that cymbal is starting to bug me too. Thanks for the ears!

No problem.
I'm a drummer at heart so things like that usually jump out at me. I have a vintage Ludwig kit also! Well I'm guessing mine is from the early 80's so it's sort of vintage!

I fav
I fav your songs even before I start listening. It's like buying a product from your favourite brand. With this difference: you always surprise. And again you do it here. Sounds all so natural and the chorus is brilliant. Don't change too much to it, Ray...

Nice work____
I enjoyed this however I think you could bring the vocals up in the mix a bit. I hear all the instruments well. Good work....

Thanks for sharing,

Wow!
I did not know what to expect as you are a "new" artist to me--I was blown off my chair Ray! One of those that I think to myself "And I'm listening to this for FREE"! This is a genre that I enjoy but I'm not expert enough in it to lend advice on your track; however, it is very impressive in it's production and performance (you are a majorly talented guy!) and it's a song that will stay with me--in my book, a sign of a tune that is well done. Thanks for sharing this! Photobucket

Hey Ray!
It's been awhile man! Good to hear something new from you.

Nice acoustic rock with a slight pop feel. I really dig the chorus on this ("bells and whistles"). What a great hook!

Anyway, nice vocals and production on this tune. Enjoyed!

Be well friend!

ring the bells
the chorus is tight... Catchy as hell... So as the verse I'm with hackney.. a little more variation will bring some spicy to the song... But this is good stuff :)

Fantastic Track
Nice sound quality, tight and a lot going on. Your voice is always right on. If you're looking for feedback then I would suggest either leaving the lower doubled vocals out of the mix during the verse or redo it. I hate making suggestions to great work and this is far more of a composition than my pea brain could ever come up with.

Hey, I'm Ray, I play guitar and a few other things. I love writing and recording. I really enjoy discovering some great music here on MacJams. Many of the songs here are experiments or penultimate versions. It's great to get feedback before makin... [see more]
