Wrong

This is my Xtra Styles competition entry in the Rock-Pop category.
I used the _ALAMO style which is a great Texas Rock/Pop style with nice chimey guitars. Once again BIAB came up with the goods and let me concentrate on getting the idea down before it was forgotten.

I added the vocals and the guitar solo at the end afterwards. I was trying to get a Tom Scholz sound on the solo – took a lot of tweaking before I found a sound that was even close. His sound is still unique even after all these years!

Lyrics:

Well I don’t know what I’m doing wrong,
Got a feeling that I should have known,
I can’t decide,
If you lied,
Whether I should have gone

You can’t keep on treating me bad,
Cos you’re making me oh so sad,
You know it’s not right,
To set me alight,
Then turn me off like a light

It’s wrong, wrong, wrong,
You’re singing me like a song,
You’re playing me like a fool
And I know that it’s wrong

It’s time for me to make up my mind,
Find someone who’ll treat me kind,
You had your chance,
You led me a dance,
No more time for romance

I hope in time you’ll see that it’s true,
All the hurt you caused made me blue,
You lost someone good,
And misunderstood,
Now the person who’s hurting is you

It was wrong, wrong, wrong,
You were singing me like a song,
Playing me like a fool,
And I knew it was wrong


Enjoy!
Rec

Rec,
WOW!
A great proper pop song,not today's stuff.
then THAT SOLO another WOW!!!
absolutely impressive playing, what a way to end
I like the vocals, how did you do that?
Nice chords.
Also was it really 3.22? it seemed to fly by, a sign of a great song.

it was all receder but reminiscent of Del Amitri meets Boston

I also wound it up to 11 and gave my neighbours a blast

Did I say I enjoyed that?? grin

Such a cool blending of voices, your trademark it seems!
Beautiful chord progression and beautiful singing line.
One small nit, the guitar solo (you played by yourself?) although very cool, seems a tiny bit too heavy for the song.
But that's just my opinion ;-)
All in all you've kicked up this category a couple of notches grin

Wow, thanks for the great comments Alyn! I absolutely love Del Amitri so maybe some of that has rubbed off on me. "Nothing Ever Happens" is one of my all time favourites. Hope your neighbours are still talking to you grin

Many thanks Rob. Yes I see your point about the "heaviness" of the solo. It took me so many takes to get it how it is now (mistakes and all). If I get time I might redo the ending with a different style of solo and see if it works better. I'm thinking something more Gilmourish.
