What I Need
on: November 25, 2019, 12:31:39
Hi guys here's a new rock n roll tune, please let me know what you think to the riff and the chorus if you have a couple of minutes. It's a demo so nothing special in terms of production. 

Lyrics

I can feel it growing in my head
I can feel it flowing through my veins
Cos this dreamer never ever left
I know how it feels to be in the morning rain

I don't know here i'm going baby
I just know where i've been
And if you're not what I want
You sure are what I need
Tear down the walls in here
Give me space to breathe
Open up your heart and soul
And your arms to me

I can see the sun shining down on me
I can see the world for what it is
Cos one match will burn a thousand trees
and I know how it feels to..miss

Here's what I think @realkevm ....I think you need to get the band together .

The way you play that electric guitar screams out for a 3-piece power group thing. I could hear the band coming in on that chorus with crashing drums and a massive bass supporting you.

yup gotta agree with @Leonard Scaper - this needs a band

The guitar is almost too much (I know it's a demo) but it's hard to hear the riff clearly as so much distortion - which with a band would be fine as the bass and drums would bring it to life.

When just you and a guitar it might need a little less distortion.

cheers

hi @realkevm , a nice and different sound you got in this, sounds good  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

but indeed, i was also thinking it would be great if there would be pretty over-the-top drums added to this this track
me, myself, and Pie

Thanks guys, it is screaming out for some drums and a guitar solo isn't it? I really appreciate you having a listen!

Hello and happy new year fellow Kitcheneers - here's a cleaned acoustic demo of the song.The phrasing is a lot better I think, i'd love to know what you think to it and how you think the song is developing for me. I'm looking forward to playing it live for the first time on Jan 16th at West Street Live, Sheffield - if you're in the area pop along :)
