Good stuff, I dig that D-C-B progression you start the song with, it sets the dark mood for the material that will follow. I think your vocal works well too for the material.

Interesting piece of music, I'm on my second listen.

Great write! Love the story and the lyrics are very strong especially in the chorus.

Perfect choice of Realtracks too.

Another hit!

Richard,

You've excelled here! This is the only song I've ever heard about the great white shark. The story you tell in these lyrics captured my imagination from start to end and carried me along all the way. Your lyrics are compelling!

You've definitely set a new personal best with this creation!

All the best,
Noel

Heh. I would have bet you'd rhyme hissing with fishing. grin

I love the lyric:

Just wants its due / which might be me or you

Fun listen!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for noting the tension at the start.
The held bass represents the shark cruising.

Cheers.

Very cool song, Richard.

A cool write and very cool instrumentation. As mentioned, your vocals work really well with this type song. (Would love to hear you use the BIAB Pumk tracks!)

Really enjoyed this.

Well done!!!

Richard,
The menacing tone in your vocal suits the theme very well ( those are some gory images!).Nice chord changes as Dave mentioned.
You`ve convinced me-I`m not going in those waters!

So quite topical.

Hissing, fishing.

Near enough for a country boy.

Wow - what a tune! The amount of energy in this is incredible. I loved the selection of RealTracks here. Every single instrument here plays off of the others. I love the rawness and edge it has.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

"Shark song.
Surf Thrash."

Gotta love that smile


Well done! The opening sets it all up so nicely and your vocal is perfecto for the dark write and production tone.

It sounds BIG and MENACING on our monitors.

I often mention how well a video would work with a song's imagery...think I'll take a pass on this one!

Kudos

Hi Robert,

Shark bites are nasty.
Never had one but seen a lot of sharks when I was longlining.
All big teeth and evil eyes.
They used to follow the snapper up to the dinghy then bite them in half.
I'd be yelling and trying to whack them with an oar.
But I don't go swimming.

Cheers.

Thanks for the supportive comments Deryk.

I enjoy spending time trying various combinations of Real Tracks.
It's half the fun for me. Like exploring Aladdin's cave.

Throw some verb on that vox.... surf is known for verb.

Heard some TOP influences in there too.

I try to stay out of the ocean because being in it puts me somewhere other than the top of the food chain.

Hi Jan and Bud

I try to sound big and menacing also but of course I'm just a softie at heart.
Nah nah on the video. I'll pass also.

Great suggestion Herb.

Why didn't I think of that?
Probably went overboard with the verb which certainly changes the new version.
I think it's an improvement.

I think the ocean is for fishes and nowadays just let them be.
Still like fish & chips though.
When we eat them that's ok. Not the other way round.

Cheers.

Hello, Richard

It is a very rare surf song.
I listened to the surf songs for the first time that sharks come out.
The bow bass is also unusual. it's so cool.
It sets the scary mood for this tune, it is very effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Shigeki

Not many surf songs about sharks.
A few Hawaiian ones though. Well one called Tiger Shark anyway.
I wanted the song to be somewhat sympathetic to the shark.
Thanks for your supportive comments.

Cheers.

Hi Rich,

You don't hear many songs about sharks! This might be the first I've heard. What an eerie story - and so well told/sung! This really works for you - definitely one of your very best, in my opinion. Cool stuff - loved it!
