Description
This is a blast from the Macjams past. I originally posted this June of 2006. Scott Carmicheal contacted me, when he heard the original and said he had some ideas for the song including having me sing along the vocal part where he would attempt to double the vocals, something he explained to me that Lennon use to do. After sending me that track back I was also pleasantly surprised that he sent a wonderful backup quartet. Scott is one of those people who is blessed with a lot of talent and has posted some awesome music here on MJ. I took the tune off of macjams several years ago because I was unhappy with the mix. While looking through some old backups to mess around with in Logic X I came across this, messed around with the mix then posted it here.

A Second Shot At A Second Life
I liked it the first time around and thought it could be the Official Theme Song for Second Life.
Scott has certainly added some delicious juice in this version and the song, the guitar work and harmonies all work together to make it very Beatle-esque. I Love it. Nice job, guys. ;)

First time around
That was the intention. I remember back then it was a big deal, a lot of members here were also performing virtual concerts on the Second Life site. I checked the place out and watched/listened to some of the concerts and was quite impressed. The music scene there seemed to have fizzled out. Slimmie did a special on BBC in England, if I remember correctly and asked to play the song on the episode, I don't know if it ever happened.

Complex and stimulating
Very good sound. Very Beatle-esque circa Paperback Writer in a good way.

A Second Life
Good song, John. Your vocals suit it. Plenty of interest in the arrangement. The familiarity belies the lovely original vignettes you both added to the sonic theme. Nice job on what is a complex mix. Thanks to you both. Take care, Peter.

I know what you mean by complex, I still don't think the mix is right but the song is there. I didn't listen on different devices and the first guitar part seems like it needs to be redone and effected different. Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated.

Excellent
Yes I remember Scott. Very talented guy as you are yourself my friend. If I was letting envy be a part of my soul these days, it would be applied here. Instead I will just relish in the good feelings this song and music brings me as pure enjoyment!

that's so nice of you. Scott really took this to the next level. I really didn't know what I had until he wanted to mess around with it. Music is fate sometimes. Scott still has his site up and the music is there to listen to.

vocal combinations are fantastic. I don't know how it came about, but you guys should team up some more.

Thanks for the listen and comments. This was way back when and I think a one time collab. But it would be cool

Cool Indie sound
Cool twang on the guitar. I like the progressions. The soft bits are lovely. The guitar growling is full nasty. It sounds a little Beatlesy, imho :)
