Noah McLaughlin I love the kids playing in the background. Gives the song a real time and place. Makes me think you're singing on a weekday afternoon, alone in a crummy apartment on a sunny day with the window open. Kind of a groovy depressing feeling like I used to have sometimes in my 20's. woo h...

pig sticker daj werkenhorse - ok, how about concentrating on making one GOOD song? hell, i'll settle for listenable. - the vocal harmonies are awful - not funny, just bad grand hotel - grinding guitar seems out of place in the verse, ruins the mood - i want more oomph from your voice; sing it like y...

everybody now Andy Balham ft. Sarah Beanz - ooh, i like your voice; if i wrote you a song, would you sing it? - kind of cheesy feel-good lyrics, but i really like the melody CONTENDER ants (invisible) - great 60's rock vibe with the clapping percussion and the chorus backing vocals - like the keyboa...

how many licks does it take...

here's a little production question: how many takes does it usually require for you to get a part your happy with? i ask b/c my "everybody now" has just been kicking my ass, especially the vocal track, especially the first verse. i did the first pass on like sunday, then let it sit. spent three hour...

Noah McG - that's some flange on the guitar! I love the electronic percussion - the thing that sounds like a frog being hit with a mallet repeatedly is a big plus. haha! first of all, thank you very much. i got a lot of mixed reviews about the computer-voice/break. definitely too long. anyway, the ...

Boltoph - weezer! gotta love it. - great rhythm and nice touch with the backing vocals - solid song, good playing, good mix, good dynamics Feldspar - channeling some ben ...

This subject sparked some imagination! Wow, a hell of a lot submissions. The BeWells - purty; love the guitar part - a little bit of "barbry ellen" here; i'm digging it - nice little piano tinkle there in the middle - needs to be a bit more dynamic, perhaps? it's pretty, but a little monotonous.
