This is the story of a pub/bar I used to frequent (I lived next door unfortunately laugh ) It was mentioned in the Doomsday book apparently. A lovely quaint little English village with a village green and beautiful old church. Muntjak deer ran wild and ate everything under 2 foot high....grrr!. They apparently escaped from Woburn Abbey even tho' that was miles away.
Mabel was the Landlady of the pub.

Hullo Mabel

You feel a wave shoot through you like a solid lump of lead
through your mouth. past through the brain and out the back of head
stagger back don't feel no pain, you felt this once before
you said you'd never do this again and in you walked
through that door

Hullo they cried as they often did sit down and howse it bin
put out a hand and feel it there, you act like in a dream
troubles pass if they weren't there you felt that once before
you said you'd never do this again and in you walked
through that door

You know the names you know the faces you know the score
get there first but it's your round till Coatsie locks the door
her in doors gets her upset you felt that lots before
you said you'd never do that again and in you walked
through that door

Hullo Mable, howse you bin?

time goes by so quickly seems a shame to go home
tabs run dry, your pockets empty, your thirst stands all alone
you stagger home by the light of the waning winter moon
you said you'd never do this again and again you talked
too bloody soon

Hullo Mable, howse you bin?
SOLO
Hullo Mable, howse it bin?


Style is =NASHPOP.STY (NashvillePop El.Guitars (120 RT))

RealTracks in style: ~684:Bass, Electric, PopHalfNotesSync Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 853:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm NashvillePopDirty Ev 120 used
RealTracks in style: 850:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm NashvillePopClean Ev 120
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven8^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride
Extra drums from underlying midi file and FL studio. I sampled the snare hit in the Real drums and used that for the extra hits.
Me on guitar, eventually, as it took a long time to get the solo clean and sounding right.

Coatsie was Ralph Coates ,a great bloke, sadly departed, and he said he was the official village idiot!! Thanks to him I met Bobby Moore, Geof Hurst and Gordon Banks from the 1996 England Football World Cup Team. I will never forget that fleeting moment!

Enjoy

Alyn

Hi Alyn,

I really like this! It's got heaps of character and the lyrics sat me right at the scene of the pub. That last line gave me a good laugh. I have to say that the mix is put together really competently. My only suggestion is that maybe the vocal could come a little more forward (0.5 - 1.0 dB). That could be my speakers though.

'Excellent' is a word that springs to mind smile

All the best,
Noel

Hey, Alyn, you did it again! There's just so much raw energy in your songs.

Wonderful "pub" atmosphere which maybe you need to be British to pick up on fully.

A great driving sound, right from the first bar and an absolutely killer guitar sound and solo. Another track which you just have to keep going back to again and again.

All this and still a refreshingly individual style and sound. Great stuff!

ROG.

Noel,
Thanks for the kind words. I did redo the song a few times before posting as the vocal was either too loud or not loud enough. It sounds OK on my set up but .....

ROG,
Thanks for the praise, the pub/village was the best even all the wives liked each other!!!....a rare occurrence LOL.
I worked hard on that solo...it took maybe 5 months to get it right, one bar in particular, blush

Guenter,
"refreshingly individual style and sound" coming from you that is a great compliment as your music is unique in this forum.
As I said to ROG that solo took months to get right as I have an awfully sloppy picking style which initially made the solo sound ***p

Bob,
Thanks for that. We all are seeming to develop our own sound on this forum. I like my backing band now as they don't argue laugh

Eric,
Thanks for the kind words.

Alyn

Alyn,

That was great! Good to hear that accent. Reminds me of my absolute favourite TV show, "Luther." Big 'Dris is just brilliant.

Scott,
Thanks, almost all of my songs are autobiographical and this covered a 5 year period of my life in the 1980's

Aleck,
I didn't realise that my accent was so noticeable to others. My Mum was Aussie and I was born, in Wales, with an Aussie accent, never had a welsh accent and then 20 years in Cockney land, the East End of London, sealed my vocal fate!!
I had to google Luther as I had never heard of it!!
Thanks for the comments.

Dani,
Thanks for the Santana smilie! I saw him once in the 1990's and the ****** played bongos, didn't touch his guitar grrrrr! I wanted Samba Pa Ti mad
The original chords were A and D minor69's, my version of Prince's weird chord; 6655 on the high strings, EBGD respectively.

Alyn

Molsenhousen,
Thanks,
I remember those times fondly and it was a labour of love to get the solo to sound right!!!
I am now going back to my sloppy, first take playing whistle
