Songs for review / Re: Jealousy by Harriet

Instead we make a traffic sign of him. This goes as follows: We take a bucket and fill it up with cement, put the boyfriends feet in it and wait for the cement to harden. When that's done, we put hum and the bucket of course, in the trunk and  bring him to the IJ. The river intersecting Amsterdam. In the middle of the IJ, we quickly sink him off. No reason to be cruel and do it slowly.

We call those "Cement Shoes" in Chicago, @LePlongeur  -- sometimes used on those who try to make the daughter too happy.

Very nice song. I like your style. @harriettornqvist

I am really glad that we’re not the only ones who defend the well-being of daughters.
Thank you for reassuring me, @Vince . Do I have to refer to smilies here too? Or is it clear that we are also creative outside of songwriting.
Or may in the case of cement shoes, it’s a cover.
Kind regards, Gus

Just listened again @harriettornqvist .....and then one more time. This song actually works quite well just as it is. The seeming obscurity of the lyrics coupled with the somewhat raw nature of the guitar gives this tune .....an identity. You just lay it all out there for us and then leave us wondering what was really on your mind there at the end.  ;)

Love the song!
And your English is improving!
A demo can have some rough edges; if it is meant as a definitive recording, I would agree with @MrBouzouki .
Great job @shatiks, glad you’re back.
Kind regards, Gus

Cheers Lenny @Leonard Scaper  - I tend to treat Groove Agent like a clever drum machine. It does it's thing and pushes and pulls around the beat if you tell it to. It might be the fact I've got several competing things going on at once. The guitar, the strings ostinato, the backing strings, bass and drums with their own agendas. It has a loose jazzy feel so it's not easy for me, a non-drummer, to always work out what's going on. ;-). It is very similar stylistically to how Greg would have played, he is playing in a Jazz combo now, but I'm not sure I got it right.

One thing I realised  with this one was in places how the percussive attack of the bass and drum hits had to be synced together and offset against the slower swell of the backing strings (and 8ve strings). Different envelopes. Otherwise it just sounded wrong. It's great fun trying to mash together orchestral stuff with regular instruments, but a challenge too.

I know what you mean about real instruments, emotionally, the bits for me are obviously the guitar, I was literally in tears tracking at some points (Chris was watching and expected a good job), the sunrise intro and adding the choir at the end as it fades away into the distance.
Also, I think this one is a great example of how a fade-out makes sense, it would have been daft to just stop, you have to keep flying forever, which might be an analogy for the eternity of the afterlife. ;-)

Anyway, one of the most important bits is that both his surviving, older musical brothers (Simon another younger one also died - he was in The Comsat Angels for two years) approve so that makes me happy. I wanted to redo this song and while not doing a direct copy, the essential spirit of the track translated well.

@Layerson take your time.. please don't use any time based fx like delay chorus reverb. If you use a lot of compression then don't get more then 4b reduction.... or just bypass it...  ;) Could you give me the tempo? or are the tempo changes.. (i don't hear them  ;))

@Pleudoniem I'm not a tab user...  ;) so i created a midi file of the keys and bass.

you can download it at

@oorlab

Thanks!
When I click on "Click here to add or edit your pin location on the map" it moves to my profile page editing but I can't seem to find where exactly there is pin location option. I only see "Location" but when I type "Oskemen, Kazakhstan" there nothing happens.
