I wrote a song and figured out how to post it on the web!

    Hi everyone. I know there are a few musicians, lots of music appreciators and lots of smart people on this forum, so I thought I would post a link to my song for opinions.

    The song is called Cinderella Moon. The singer is my wife. I am one of two guitar players and my playing is kind of buried in the mix on this one.

    What do you think?

    I never considered that it sounded like them, but it does. Thanks for the comment Gokul.

    Good job. Nice easy feel. Only criticism is the vocals were too low to hear the lyrics, though my headphones aren't the greatest so maybe they were the problem.

    I was also glad to find the site. I play bass in a three-piece band. We had our first paying gig a month ago and hope for more. We're also exploring Net based options like live streaming, etc. Maybe we can use sites like this one.

    Check out their FAQ section. One good thing about Soundclick is that the artist retains the copyrights to the music. But you can only post songs that you own, or covers that you have a license to copy.

    The vocals may be a bit light in the mix because it was just recorded with the condenser mics built into my Boss BR-600 digital recorder.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Way to go Artman! Wife has a nice voice too! I agree that the vocals are a bit light in the mix, but it's nevertheless very nice. :smile: :approve:

    I liked the music itself, and the performance. To me, you guys sound like you could do it professionally. My one reservation is that the lyrics make it kind of a "chick song".

    Thanks Astronuc and Zoobyshoe. We do sort of play professionally; we have an occasional paying gig. We're a weekend warrior geezer band.

    Yeah it is a little. It's funny, when I sang the song on my demo for the band to learn, it really sounded wrong for a guy to sing. When Ii heard my wife sing it, I thought, "That's nice."

    That's totally cool! Glad to hear it. I know about thirty billion2 would be musicians who can't even get together and play through one song. The fact you guys can do that plus play tight and smooth, all on your own steam, is actually pretty impressive. With the occasional playing gig on top of it, I'd say you should be pretty proud of yourselves.
    Yeah. I think the most successful lyrics are gender neutral, and even person neutral: they may sound specific but actually anyone could sing them and they seem to fit.

    The guitars definitely feel like America. It was very nice, very relaxing.

    Edit: it's actually the guitar-bass combo that is America style, if you hear it closely.

    I agree. Most of my lyrics are fairly gender nuetral, most are written from a male point of view to be sung by a woman, which makes gender neutrality a necessity. I hope to post some more songs later, but the recordings I have of my other originals aren't quite as "finished" yet as the one I posted.

    Cool! I know quite a few musicians who fit that classification. :biggrin: :tongue2:

    Actually, I like the live music of seasoned musicians.

    Pete Seeger lives nearby and occasionally we get a chance to hear him. :smile: :approve:

    I also thought of America when I heard the guitar/bass as -Job- mentioned.

    Keep at it!

    I also like listening to amatures like you get at Soundclick. It's kind of cool to hear these guys just starting out in song writing.
