Cages

Its back to psychedelic roots for this one ( my first for a while - there`s been some fantastic songs posted while I`ve been travelling - blink and you miss something here!).
I wasn`t sure if Scott C would like the percussion loaded feel of this song, but he quickly sent back an on-the-money lead that floats over top and then added a really cool slide part under the vocal.
Janice may have missed the first wave of the San Fransisco music boom but well, you all know she can sing anything.

Comments welcome and thanks to all tuning in.

Cages

green eyed panther
pacing round and round
sends through the bars
without a sound
lonely boy
picks up the spell
he knows the ache
to break his shell

ooohoh
feel the change
in cages

lonely boy
opens his book
reaches the hero
with a look
hero remembers
who trapped him there
draws an arrow
he prays won`t err

ooohoh
feel the change
in cages

beat your wings beat your wings
on the bars of fate
the game goes on
there`s no checkmate

ring master wakes
with a start
feels for the arrow
in his heart
takes the key
without a sound
green eyed panther
pacing round and round

ooohoh
feel the change
in cages

beat your wings beat your wings
on the bars of fate
the game goes on
there`s no checkmate

Yeah! I love this.

I'm huge fan of the San Fransisco sound of the late 60s, early 70s, and you nailed that groove.
What really kicks this up a notch for me is the percussion track you added to it.
B3 sounds great too, and Scott's playing is right on the money, I really like the work you two have done together.
And of course having Janice on board doesn't hurt either!
Killer job on the mix too.
Great track guys, on my third listen as I type this.

I was so glad to be invited to play on this project. Really liked Roberts music right from the very first song he posted. Made extra special knowing Janice would be part of the project as well. Had some wonderful chats with Bud during this time.

I used two guitars on this project. Used a Fender Stratocaster for the melody and a Gibson SG for the slide parts. Amp was a Purdy (62 Fender Deluxe Clone) and had a touch of delay (FlashbackX4), added a bit of dirt with my MAXON808 overdrive and compression from a Boss CS-2.

This is really cool. Kinda reminds me early King Crimson and Robert Fripp!

Must be the guitar Scott!

Great song and vocals all around. Loved it! Great production Robert and team.

What a tune! It's captivating right from the get go - that opening riff is truly attention grabbing smile I love the groove, and the catchiness of this. Great job guys - you should all be proud of this!

Robert Scott Janice

Very atmospheric Jefferson Airplane feel nicely done.
Really well written and put together. Liked Scott's guitar which was melodic and a perfect fit for the piece.
Enjoyed the vocals and the harmonies giving the song a 60's feel.
Great work all round.

Thank you, that`s very kind, Dave. I`d gladly take my San Francisco albums to a desert island and listen to them letting what`s left of my hair get wild again!
The percussion got added in bits mostly after I heard the spacey lead Scott sent me; there`s a vast resource of different bells & whistles in the BiaB drum section I`ve hardly begun to explore.

David,
I didn`t hear the Frippertronic sound of Scott`s guitar before,but I do now!
Thanks for taking time out from all the fine songs you`ve been writing to have a listen.

Derek,

All I gave Scott as a style hint for the intro was "Santana" and was thrilled when he sent me that opening riff.
These folks (Scott, Janice and Bud) are such accomplished and relaxed musicians - I don`t really deserve such partners!

Dang, guys ...

You make me wanna find some bell-bottoms, tie-died shirts and let my hair grow!

Wow, this is so good in every way! Janice's harmony is a wonderful addition to the great lead lead vocal. And holy smoke ... that guitar work! perfect mix and love all the backing tracks. All of you have recreated and executed the 1968 sound as good as can be done, I would think. Super cool!

Robert/Scott/Janice...

What a treat to hear! Such an interesting write - I really like the pace of the lyric - terrific images, well painted with a minimum of words...

Scott's guitar work is awesome (both parts).

The background vocals are haunting. The percussion is a cool addition. Excellent mix.

Nice work by all...

Thanks for the listen and kind comments, Peter.
I`m glad you felt it had the Airplane feel. The harmonies they did on songs like Wooden Ships was how I described what I was looking for to Janice, and you can tell she got the message!

Alan & Di,
Many thanks for that.
I still find the music of that era blows away anything since... so why not spend some of the musical hours I have left paying "homage" so to speak?
Its been great to find folks on the forum willing to support my efforts.

Robert

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
