    Cool, the song sounds really tinny though. What did you use to record it?
    Really? What version did you listen to?

    Both the sound click and myspace version. The Soundclick version sounded really really bad, and the better sounding myspace version sounded poor. I think you may need to either rerecord or remix the song.

    Interesting, it must be the file, the version on my iPod sounds fine. Although the drums may sound a llittle thin, it should be fine...

    My major suggestion is to get rid or the complete vocal and guitar stereo thing. Put the sound closer together because there is a little white noise in the vocal track, when the singer sings the white noise is heard, when the singer stops singing it is gone. putting the tracks closer together may fix this.

    interesting. i just listened to the soundclick version, sounded fine to me. i really dont know what the problem is. if you want to, try downloading it, and see if you have the same problem, or try the hi-fi version on the music page (link on left side). i look into the white noise issue..

    I can hear it better now that I have downloaded it. Wow, sounds a lot better. The only problem is the echo of the vocals, it is just to different from the rest of the instruments. Take out some of the echo and it will sound fine.

    Why don't you check out what I'm going to chart for RBN

    ok good, just making sure. im attempting to give it a listen now, my youtube is acting up though right now.

    interesting to say the least. the jethro tull flute thing was cool, but the quality of the sound on it is less than stellar, dont know if it was intentional or not, as the rest of the song sounds pretty good in terms of quality. its pretty cool though. the voice is pretty good, although for the game your gonna have to crank it up a couple decibels to bring it out of the mix and into the clear.

    well hello both of you lol

    listened to both songs, and i liked your song lizard_king, singing seems a little bit in the same style of the doors, and there was a nice solo near the end.

    akalink, love the acoustic guitar and the lyrics, but like lizard said the sound quality seems low a little bit, but im not one to judge lol

    Yeah, the that was the first time I ever recorded clarinet, I had the mic to close the the instrument and the preamp up to high so the quality suffered. I need to rerecorded the clarinet which will bring up the other instruments.

    God, this whole idea of whoring out your music to try to get cheap attention is just pathetic. I mean, you don't see me trumpeting that I'm planning to bring a small album from my band NECKPICKLE!! into the game. Just terrible people, all of you.



    It's clear that I'm kidding, right?

    Man, I can't wait for the explosion of unknown artists to happen. Being exposed to new music has always been one of my favorite aspects of Rock Band. RBN has the potential to be absolutely legendary.

    thats a pretty cool little jam, i won't lie. definitely see the Stones influence. my only thing is your vocals could use some better mixing/mastering. they sound kinda...live-from-the-garage-ish. but like i said, i dig the hell out of this song.

    My suggestion, is the vocals fit the second half of the song so keep them as is for that part. But for the beginning put them on a different track with less echo.

    Sounds a whole lot like the Doors, which is pretty cool

    Awesome, glad to see some other members willing to spread their music in such a way. I'm actually going to chart my own songs, I have a bit of experience so I should be fine on that regard. Wow 3 songs. I hope they are popular enough to get on Wii.

    While I wasn't crazy about the song, I plan on buying it anyways - a lot of effort was put into it, which I respect and I am a FIRM believer of putting money into the pockets of independent musicians!

    Yeah in those versions some vocals drift a bit, but I fixed the issue, so on the final mix you won't hear that :)
