This song is not in a battle


This was a sort of spontaneous recording I did yesterday when I got out my old aucoustic guitar and tuned it. I sort of started strumming a few chords and discovered that I had written a sort of catchy chord progression, and recorded it. I added a simple lead and vocals then later synthesized bass and drumset, and it turned into this sort of simple, catchy groove.

I'm not satisfied at all with my vocals, but I think as a whole it turned out alright, (even if it is a bit out of tune)

Lyrics:
-FOG-
Out at sea
On the waves
You池e too far away
From me
Can稚 see the lighthouse
Through the fog and I
Let my anchor down

Oh I知
Still blind again
In the fog of your misery
Oh I知
Still without shelter
Hard rock shelter at sea

Turn the bow
Towards the shore
Still thinking of
Your kiss
Cold comes in
And I rock a bit
And I Cry a bit
On the waves

Oh I知
Still blind again
In the fog of your misery
Oh I知
Still without shelter
Hard rock shelter at sea

At three AM I
Hear the fog horn
Its blowing out to me
But now that my
Anchor痴 down I think
I値l just wait here for a while

Oh I知
Still blind again
In the fog of your misery
Oh I知
Still without shelter
Hard rock shelter at sea

Sun comes out
I hear a shout and I
Still can稚 see anything
Still not sure if I
Should go to shore or if
I should stay here for a while


Oh I知
Still blind again
In the fog of your misery
Oh I知
Still without shelter
Hard rock shelter at sea

Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Etc

As you say yourself, "I think as a whole it turned out alright"

If I may agree with you.

If I could put my lyrics to guitar as you do I'd be a happy man.

You also mention that your not satisfied with some of the vocals, I would have personally mixed them deeper into the song with some foggy type effect.
I do hear your 'waiting' for the next strum sometimes, I don't know if guitarist record vocal as they play or do they  do them separately, I would because I'd feel that I was compromising one or the other if I did both together. My excuse as to why I don't play guitar and sing.
Or should I say I find it easier to 'listen' to the song I'm singing if I'm not also playing guitar.

There's a hi-hat in my right speakers that keeps on popping up out of the fog and smacking me on the side of the head with a small stick!

And I find the lead guitar a bit too 'leady' or squeaky or something like that.

But on the whole as a song I think it tuned out quite well.

I really like this one, I think the mix came out very well (very good??) It's a very 'fat' or 'wide' sound, which I absolutely love in a song.

And the couple of vocal parts with a lot of effects ("it's blowing down on me" and the other one) are very kool, and a great touch.

Good job!! ^_^

Nice!
I do hear the "waiting" for the guitar in the lyrics line, but I love the description of how you wrote the song, I do the same thing.  Overall, this is a great song.
