I'm proud to say I've finished my first song that I posted on the MC  Grin

This song started life as a rough tune I put together with my good friend Dale whom I've known since the age of about 5 or 6.

I already had an idea how I wanted it to turn out , but I must say due to the work and talent of my new friends here on the MC it has exceeded my expectations and I'm really happy with the final result. Grin

I've learnt some good things along the way such as how to use the boards , how best to present bed tracks for other musicians , but mostly how you never know what auditions are going to show up and how they can surprise and delight you, and give you the enthusiasm to push forward.  I have no doubt that this would be sitting half finished on my hard drive without this place.  I've made some new friends too...Dave, Ali , Scotsman you are honary members of the CosmicDolphins virtual band.

Massive thanks to all of you and I really look forward to the next one.

Beautiful Game[/b]

Verse 1

I'm quite happy
To watch the bubble burst
My twisted emotions
Just make things worse

Now I confess that
This experiment
Sowed the seeds of a Winter
Of Discontent

Bridge
----------

Oooohh , Oooohhhh
It's just a beautiful game we play
Oooohh, Ooooohhhh
Push ourselves through another day

Chorus
-----------
And I  - I'd give you everything
Every song I'll ever sing
The Life that you need
But I - Can't do anything
Deny the love you bring
The life that we lead......I can't breathe

Verse2
-----------

Circumstances, beyond control
Need special measures
That taunt my Soul

And through the static
The silence breaks
Frequencies bleeding
Through our mistakes

Repeat Chorus.......( I can't breathe........................)

Way to go Mark. Woo Hoo !!!  Cool Nice job on this. Quite the production to tackle. Tons of stuff going on. Really creative and well thought out on every little bit. I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out in the early stages but I'm glad you manipulated all the sounds to your liking. Made me sound better than I am.  Grin  I really think this turned out super nice and I'm happy to have been a part of it in some small way. Hope to add to more of your songs in the future.

Excellent song. Lets do more !!  Evil

Thanks AJ....

Cheers Dave...Yeah it was a big job , and you started and finished about four other songs inbetween, but I do knew what kinda sound I wanted in my head most of the time  , thanks for laying down some excellent guitars Evil

I do tend not to just have my sounds too straight most of the time , although there is a place for that too and the next couple will be more straightforward.

Hope to add to more of your songs in the future.

Excellent song. Lets do more !!  Evil

Dave

You bet - I got a pipeline !  Like to finish my Album this decade !

The mix sounds excellent.  Cool

Everything is mixed very well. The backup vocals are there but not. That is they blend just nice enough
to have that edge that does not over power and cluster certain spots. I like the lyrics and this would make a cool club song. Drum sound great 2:31 is "genesis"  Cool Sounds like an effect I heard in a  U2 tune and others.
Nice modern songs with perk. Love the sound effect at the end and it ends well and the way it should.

A big congratulations on your "1st" very professional session.

Thanks tubes

Although he doesn't know it , Dave ( Studioplayer ) was responsible for BOTH of the sound effects.

The one at the end he did himself....the other one just before the lead guitar break comes in was actually the last note of his guitar solo reversed and slotted into place.

Hope it didn't end up too Pet shops Boys far ya !

Towards the end of this my laptop couldn't cope and I could only play certain parts of it without Sonar freezing...

I just got a new PC , and it's way faster so I was able to tweak on the fly.

I've used this to test out the new system and make sure i got all my plugs working , so this is the slightly revised version.  I turned up the bass.....and re-eq'd the vocal and mastered it in a different way.......you'll have to tell me if it's better or worse !

Wow somehow I missed the final post to this one until now.  It turned just plain awesome Mark.  Love how it all fits so well together.  Busy but comfortable.  Glad I could help out some.
