Description
First Garage band Song. Used some loops that I will change when I get the hang of it. The song is about the sadness of leaving a life behind.

Awesome
Nicely done bro, I love the texture to this song...the lyrics are great as well, and I like how you stacked the male/female vocals. Acoustics sound really great, along with the lead and synth. Your distortion could be altered to sound a bit more powerful. I think the amount of reverb that you used on the vocals is making them sound a little less dominating than they could be, as they are very good and should be prominent. All in all, a great song...great work. Keep at it.

the end maybe some riffage over that last chorus. but

articulate chords
I like the articulate chords. Very nice chords indeed. Your
voice is very interesting, solid and perfect for this style.
The song sounds like a potential winner. But there's work
to do, you know that, and I'll bet you agree. By the way, I
don't like the repeating bell-tone piano or whatever. Why
not try a real whurlitzer instead? (elektrik piano Native
Instruments), it will enhance the arrangement (my
opinion).

Lots of good stuff
Good songwriting on this. I'd say drop some of the echo
on your voice and bring it up more. The reoccuring loop
— whatever the high pitched piano part — not to my
tastes. Really liked the power chords at the end and the
organ fill. Unexpected bit that added to the song. I would
suggest letting the distorted guitar chords ring out
completely.

Overall it's a nice song. More than pretty good for a first
go. Keep it up.

i was here too
wonderful song.
re: the reoccuring high annoying bells which i believe are the upper register of an electric piano - i like 'em. that's the hook of this tune to me.
re: vocal reverb/echo or whatever - i think they sound just fine the way they are. the reverb adds texture to the vox which sound pretty dominant in the mix to me. cool stuff. nice work.

nice voice
you have a voice that is radio ready. the high voice above you (you in falsetto?) and other aspects of the song seem somewhat out of tune. otherwise, this is a wonderful sound. that break toward the end, and the power you come out of it with was very cool.

nice voice
thanks for the comments, the out of tune part is me, good ear, most people
think it is a girl. I took all of the bass out of the vocal and added a bunch of crap
and tried to be a little off key for whatever reason, didn't work out like it does
for modest mouse or bright eyes. But oh well, thank you for listening and your
input.

I was here
very nice work indeed... i really liked this one. the elec
piano loop i thought took away from a grand sense of
power displayed over all of the other arrangements to this
piece. it could be that i've heard that loop too many times
in gb, but you seem to be quite a bit more creative and of
a much higher caliber... very nice work! cydniko
