: I like the guitar playing right from the start. This seems mixed just a bit low before the vox comes in. I read the lyric the other day and I like it. I'm pretty happy that Texas Flood made it in, which is kind of an obvious one, I guess. I even thought of that song before the fight was announced. The melody works well for me. The performances are good. The vox is probably just a bit higher in the mix than I would like, especially in the second verse and chorus. If it were me doing a G&G song, I'd probably use the Haas effect on the guitars to widen them out. Or do something to spread out the guitar a bit. But, really, I've nitpicked this to death. As I like the guitars and the melody and the vocal performance is pretty solid (I like it more on second and third listens) and the lyric is a cool idea and pretty well implemented.Pigfarmer Jr
: (me) I've been doing a ton of these types of songs (arranged drums, bass, acoustic, electric, vox) and I'm still not happy with the way the acoustic guitars sit in the mix. (I think new strings would help immensely.) The vox could be better, especially in the first the verse where it's pretty weak. The chorus, though, is pretty solid. The doubled vox a fifth (or whatever the hell it is) apart works really well. And the drums are a bit repetitive on that chorus, but they work pretty well, I think. Oh, and the lyric came pretty quick and I like it, although it's a bit more heavy handed than I would have written if I were to tackle this subject without this specific title. I'm fairly happy with the song although doing the 50 Songs in 90 Days songwriting challenge has given me a different perspective on these challenges.
Here are some smilies that I've never used before.
Here is a poem I am about to write for songfight:
Oh, dear songfight
You quirky little bastard
You make me wanna drink
Until I'm completely plastered
If I decide to vote
I don't know who to choose
But I guess I already know
With two entries, I guess we all lose
