This is the next step for this tune: http://macjams.com/song/69517

So, I added lyrics to the song, showed it to my band and we decided to record vocals and replace the software drums for real drums. We learned a lot from this.. and it was clear for us we were lacking in many areas.

I have been tweaking, detweaking, retweaking tracks... and actually I'm not really happy with the sound I got, but had to do a first version to evaluate what can be improved, what need to be retaken, etc.

Guitar & Bass: I didn't touch them since the first version, just volume and panning. I don't like very much the sound I got from the bass... don't think its punchy.

Drums: Replaced the EZdrummer tracks with real drums. It was a mess since we didn't have a nice interface to record, just a few micros and a console... so basically we got Kick & toms in one channel and the rest in the other channel (used 5 microphones). In GB I doubled the drums and tried different combinations with compression, trackplug 5... didn't really liked how drums sound... they are very processed, the sound is very unnatural (and since our drummer wasn't very confident following the time of the song using a very improvised click/headphones setup had to use the time correcting feature from GB and some times it sounds really messy).

Vocals: Same as drums... we got a few takes... used a Shure SM58... but at some point there is a mess out there.

I can use a lot of help here, I feel like going backwards when adding more real instruments/vocals with a really improvised hardware (but you have to work with what you have).

Un día normal.

Las calles me estan mirando pasar.
Es un día normal sin tu ausencia notar.
No importa ya perderme en recuerdos que no volverán.
Mírame, mírame el mundo está igual,
sigo en mi camino sin tu corazón y
nada cambió.

Creí que tu cuerpo, tu cuerpo era el cielo
hoy es infierno y te pierdo al andar.

Las hojas que yo guardaba en tu almohada las puedo tirar,
las puedo quemar, mirarme al espejo,
perderme en el tiempo, callando en suspenso.
Yo no, yo no sé mañana que hablar, pero hoy hay silencio, silencio al andar.
Andar sin parar, creí que tu cuerpo, tu cuerpo era el cielo,
hoy es veneno, no me voy quedar.

Y el mundo seguirá seguirá caminando,
las calles mirarán, este será un día normal.

/// Translation (and here you can notice english is not my main language :P).

A normal day.

The streets are watching me pass.
It's a normal day without noticing your absence.
It doesn't matter. Lost in memories that will never return.
Look at me, look at me! The world hasn't change.
I'm still in the way without your heart,
nothing has changed.

I thought your body, your body was heaven
today is hell . I lose you while walking.

Those pages on your pillow, I can trash them,
I can burn them.
I look in the mirror, lost in time, silent in suspense.
I don't know, I don't know what to say tomorrow.
But now there is silence, silence while walking.
Walk without stopping, I thought your body, your body was heaven,
today is poison, I will not stay.

And the world will continue,
the streets look at me, this is a normal day.

Un dia normal!
This is a solid track. Everything is laid out perfectly! I would add a melodic line(guitar or piano) in the chorus just to compliment it further. La rola es solida. Todo esta despelgado perfectamente! Para resaltar el coro aun mas, estaria bien agregarle una line melodica(guitarra o piano).
