Good points B2B.. Just hoping to get a track put down to sing on first :) Then see where it goes from there.

Just reading through the posts, and have to agree about the "aren't" vs "are" comments.
I wonder if you tried "ain't as"...pronounced "ayynaz".... just as a suggestion.
Sounds like you're trying to do a very flat "brit" accent, (maybe a bit Elvis Costello-like) unless I'm mistaken, so "ayynaz" should work.... but if I'm mistaken, sorry bud... ;-)

Sure thing.... Ill get on it

@ Blue -- Great first try. :)
Can you please try and follow the original rhythm ? and make it more staccato. It's a snappy, attitude song so I'm hearing the guitar not holding out the notes. Tone is great so I think this will be a fun song. I'd love to hear it if you could follow the original rhythm and make the breaks sharp. :)

Cool. You're the awesomest. :) some good snappy guitar with some acoustic attitude. Should be right your alley.

Blimey so many songs to do - can can get the guitar done on this one if you want me to ! Would be my pleasure

Blue can do the guitar bits if he wants! He is the bestiest at guitaring after all :D
My bass is nowhere near ready to upload yet! I need to figure out the bridge bit mainly!
4/23/2012 5:26:06 AM
Major.. Can we let Blue take a shot at the guitar ? Can you put up just your bass ?

Gimme some suggestions of what you ideally want and ill see if i can add anything for ya

Glad you like it so far. I've passed the files on to a drummer I know to have a play with and as soon as he helps me bring my digital kit downstairs, I'll have him lay down a drum track. Bass ideas will be much easier once drums are going.
I know what you mean about searching for notes in places...mainly the final choruses, as I kept forgetting the chord changes. It was still pretty much practising for that part, as I liked the run downs following with the lyrics and tried a few variations. I also wanted the bass to liven up somewhat from the middle onwards. I'm still unsure what would go with that bridge though :D Again, having drums might inspire me that bit more.
I'm quite happy with the verse patterns though, and I'll tidy them up with appropriate variations.
If you have any ideas on what and how bits are played, please let me know!

I like your style of bass with this. Once you get your groove in place, it will add a lot to the tune and give it some character. There are some nice parts in there. In places it did sound like you were searching for for note selection but as a rough I think it was cool first take.
I'm not by a guitar right not but did you want me to send you the chords for the bridge. I think is was just D to C or close to that... I'll have to look later.
I do think the song will sound pretty cool once you jump in an put lock in the groove. Even as a rough, the bass and extra stuff added a glimpse of fullness to the tune that, I think will be something cool after we're done with it.
I dig what you're doing... I can't wait to hear what you put together once you figure the groove out :)
All the best

Very rough bass & 2nd guitar...Still very rough jam as I still get thrown by chord changes & bridge, but I wanted to get an idea to you of what I had in mind. The guitar is even rougher, so pretty much ignore that :).

Ha.. I like that your sense of humor is like mine. Yep. I had smelliest as a possible lyric. I've been jotting down a few others... We can bounce ideas off each other before I lay down better vocals :) Glad to hear that you're excited to see what you can do. Can't wait :)
1/22/2012 1:31:53 PM
Yeah, pronunciation on "aren't" isn't clear then! I'd split that into "are not".
How about "all the other girls, don't smell as nice as you...you're the smelliest"? :P
I haven't found much time to do anything yet, but I'm itching to get something done, so please bear with me!

Hi John... Thanks for digging the tune (concept).. And thanks for your input.. You are always welcome to give criticism - constructive and even not constructive :) It's all part of the process :) I love collaborating and am extremely laid back.
Soooooo, with that said, let's take a look at what's on your mind here.
1) Lyrics. You have me laughing over here. Yes, I am saying "aren't" lol As in "Are Not" Maybe I'll have to work on my pronunciation :)
The song, in general is about a guy trying to tell a girl that she's the best but every word he uses isn't a "word". My way of trying to capture the spirit of everything he says, get's in the way of what he really wants to say. (the typical guy can't find the right words to use to talk to a girl theme)
It's scratch. I'm still looking for clever words.. I like Awesome because Awesomest isn't a word, I like good because goodest isn't a word. I like Fair because fairyest sounds embarrassing.. and so on... I'd like to come up with a couple other witty words to toss in there...
In regards to the word. "beautiful" That was my dorky attempt at trying to sound British. My friends joke around about me sounding like Bon Jovi all the time so I wanted to try something weird. I like to use this site to experiment sometimes and do things I'd normally not do.. I do want a little attitude in there but I'd be happy to sing it more normally / traditional :)
2) The bridge. Yes... it might help to know that I'm not a guitar player so the amount of chords I can play is extremely limited. Not sure what I want there. It was an ad lib (that's why it doesn't make much sense. :) lol
I only tossed that bridge in because it's all I could think of. I'd love to hear what's in your head.. Nothing is ever written in stone so please feel free take a swing at it.
I look forward to hearing back from you and collaborating together on this.
Post what ever feel good to you and let's explore from there.
All the best !!!

I've been having a play around with this, as it's quite a catchy little tune! I've been putting a bit of bass and a secondary guitar to it, but I really need to map out the chord progression properly before tackling it seriously. As it stands right now, my additions are very messy!
If I could offer some constructive criticism...
The lyrics need a bit of tweaking. I know you say they are "scratch" etc, but they are almost there as it is. I think that rather than "All the other girls, are as...." should really be "All the other girls, are not as....". This is because if all the other girls are as , then the girl the song is about can't be any better! I hope you get what I mean there :) The only other bit I would change, is the way you sing the "beautiful" words. At the moment, you break the word up missing out some of the pronunciation. It would sound a lot better if it flowed more.
The bridge... this bit totally throws me at the moment, but that is probably down to me not having the chords mapped out. Is singing really needed in this part? A space for a bit of a guitar solo might be good, and no reason not to have it during the bridge?
Anyway, good work so far. I'm surprised nobody else has picked up on this one! I'll try and spend a bit of time with it this weekend and get you an idea of what's in my head!
