Hi Matcham,

Welcome to the forum.

It's good to see another Aussie join in. There are a few of us now!

This is really well put together. I enjoyed the ride. The style suits your vocals, too. You've certainly hit the forum with a bang! It's a great first entry.

Is there any possibility of putting the lyrics up either here or Soundcloud? I got most of the words but some slipped by me. It would be good if I could fill in the blanks.

Looking forward to hearing more from you,
Noel

Thanks Noel! It's great to hear from another Aussie here. OK here are the lyrics. I've noticed that they are a popular addition on the forum.

What Love Is Like

My love is like a wounded asp
She kicks and she bites and she whips my arse
I buckle and I flinch and I duck and I sway
And you know I wouldn’t have it any other way

My love is like some deep Arabian song
Kinda sad and strange and she’ll play you all night long
As I lie beneath the palm fronds, chillum in my hands
I dream of one day living with her in exotic lands

In the stillness of the night time when terror knows no bounds
I feel her presence in the room, she’s nowhere to be found
She’s an omen from the underworld, she tears my world apart
She’s the apple of my eye and she’ll always have my heart

My love is like a wounded asp
She kicks and she bites and she whips my arse
I buckle and I flinch and I duck and I sway
And you know I wouldn’t have it any other way

Matcham,

Your first RT try sounds as good as any veteran post. My first time hearing blue grass behind an accent and colloquialism such as yours. I have to say I like what you do much better. Look forward to more RT posts from you.

Thanks Atze. One forgets that one has an accent! It's good to know it marries well with the bluegrass style. Yep more to come. Lots of ideas! I'm really enjoying quickly trying out different chord/instrument combos as inspiration for new material.

Dylan meets bluegrass with an Australian accent (not that I can really hear it).
Very nice first post.

Matcham, welcome also to the forum.

Fantastic first effort and delivery.

Really enjoyed the lyrics. Great meaning.

The choice of style sits nicely, and even though I was a little surprised with the instrument selection initially, it really grew on me.

Welcome again.

Trev

Hi Matcham
great tune by you.

The way you sing and the melody of the song, remember me some passages of "Shelter from the storm" by B.Dylan.

Thanks Sergio. I hear the similarity. I'm curious now to check out the chord structure of the Dylan song.

Well done.
I do harbour one disappointment though: you wrote arse but sang [*****].
I know it's International American & the "audience" is largely accustomed to that but I do like the sound of our own language.
Neither actually rhyme well with asp but you've taken the obvious sound.
If the blue grass elements were swapped for 12 string and 6 string acoustics you'd have a very good Robert Foster/Go-Betweens song both in terms of your voice and the humour.
With the slight issue about pronunciation you've a very clever and well constructed lyric.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
