Wow - thanks all for the listens and comments.
Where do I start?
Fuzzface is a contributor to another forum I visit. He wrote a series of "Lyrics" based on Picasso's life.
And asked for a different song to be be done by different people as a sort of challenge - to end up with a rock opera.
I took on theses lyrics as they seemed to have been left on the shelf. More theatrical than rock.
It was a real challenge fro me to get something together as I had throat problems . - And never being the most confident singer. Still I ploughed on and ended up with this.
The mix is out of kilter because that is how I saw it within the scheme of the song. A change in the character but somewhat reluctant to let the old go. Hence the two contrasting vocals. Worth arty I thought. And there is no guitar on this piece - all the strumming etc.. Is bouzouki, so the sound does lack in the mids a little. Once against it is a try to to get away from the norm.
It was fun putting it together. And thanks all for the comments. I am intending to redo this completely before long.John
: Thanks so much. I reckon if you had had less on on I would have asked you to do do the docs. Maybe another time. Cheersmatty
: Thanks so much for the nice comments. Much appreciated. Always trust your ears. They are usually right
Thanks for the Listen Pete
. You are right of course.gwood
: Hi Gary. nice to hear from you. I can't add much to what I said in the preamble.. I still laugh at you "turtle perhaps" I will try to put the lyrics up. but As I did not write them an they are out of context if read on their own I ..... Well you know what I mean.dickl
: Cheers dick - so happy you can see this for what it is. A gudjinism 1manband
: Cheers - In the context of what I was trying to achieve - I can understand why you found this annoying - I will later this year redo this completely and use an acoustic guitar for the accompaniment as opposed to the bouzouki in this version.
. thanks for finding the time for a listen. I think I covered fuzzface in the preamble.
: hope things are going well with you too. Fuzzface? I think I covered that in the preamble. I anyone is interested I can give further details. Cheers.Topo
: I appreciate the listen and here what you are are saying about the vocals. It was an effect I tried before I realised I liked it better than the "rockier version I did. Thanks for taking the time.
Wow again- I think that has about covered it and just one great big thanks to all. And the Zoatrope. I know he is still out there somewhere.
Thanks to all
Leigh for but maybe overdid the "differences". I suppose I was after a more theatrical performance but got a little carried away.Polly
: You are close in your simile (sic). And I also found I had to listen to this version several times
