Another rock tune from Christiane and myself, crank up the volume for this one:

The Bullet

The Bullet (2017, Chris Spruit)

V1
Burning in a fever
I got caught out in the rain
Maybe I'm too eager
a bullet in my vein
I can’t say it is going to save me
but I swear it takes the blues
I am burning for you baby
yeah, take the bullet when I lose
V2
Dancing at the border
of a dry and wasted land
Burning down the bridges
as I know you understand
How to tame the running horses
all the good and all the bad
I rely on you my baby
yeah, hide the bullet in your hand

Bridge
"I rely on you" improv

Guitar solo

V3
I am burning for you baby
it is keeping me alive
Maybe I'm too eager
but life is not that kind
I am burning for you baby
and I know it takes the blues
The bullet in my vein
take it while I lose

The band:
Drums: RockBritDrivingEv16
Bass: 1418
Piano: 1838

I recorded five guitar tracks for this, lots of fun!

As always any feedback is appreciated!

Hi Ember,
Yes, it is a technique called doubling, quite common in rock music. I have two guitars playing a similar rhythm part, panned left and right, and then two guitars playing a similar riff pattern, panned left and right.
Not throughout the entire song, just in key places. And then I have the lead guitar on top.

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment, I appreciate it smile

Dave,

WOW! Outstanding! This is a great song - the guitars are excellent and I love your lead tone, especially that fluted sound right at the songs end...

Chris has the swagger of Ann Wilson - tremendous vocal.

Loved it!

Bob

This is great classic rock.

Every part of the song delivers. The expression throughout is quite remarkable.

What a fantastic production. Guitar work stands out too.

Dave & Chris...

Dang!

This is over-the-top good in so many ways.

Chris' vocals are awesome! Powerful, confident. "Woman Rock" as it should be - as Bob says "Heart-like".

Excellent Rock write, too! Not an easy thing to do. Great "rock phrases" that allow the singer to really "belt it out there" - with just the right amount of "meaning" vs. ambiguity for the listener to fill in the blank. Probably the best Rock write ever presented on the forum.

Top-notch guitar work from every angle. The solos and fills are AWESOME!! LOVE the tone (S-Gear?). The backing guitars are nice - tasteful, not over-done. Perfect. (Nice piano sound! - really well positioned/mixed).

Excellent mix.

This is STUNNINGLY GOOD.

Zowie, y'all. KEEP IT UP!

Never really understood the term "classic rock", to me it's just rock. Unless it means it is rock music made by old people, in which case in it makes perfect sense :P

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment, I/We appreciate it!

Wow, thanks Floyd! You made my day when I read your comments, and Christiane's too.

To answer your question; yes, all of the guitar tracks are going through the S-Gear amp simulator, I love it! In addition I'm using the Waves CLA guitar fx plugin on the lead guitar, picked it up on sale for $29 last week.

Thanks again, we appreciate it smile
