Hi All.

This might be a trifle heavy for some. Best avoided if you're of a
nervous disposition!

It's actually a co-write with our son Neil.
It started out with just drums in Realband - RD Hip Hop at 84 bpm.
Neil came up with the basic guitar bed and I copied it on bass.
Next, we generated lots of drum fills and dropped them into the track -
think Ginger Baker, Keith Moon! Where we couldn't get exactly the fill
we wanted, to blend with the rhythm bed, we edited the individual
beats, still within Realband and finally we dropped the pitch of the
drum track by three semitones to give it more power.

Neil supplied the lead on the intro and I contributed the solo and some
ornamentation at the end. At this stage, I realised that the key Neil had
started in was going to push the vocal either a bit high, or very low,
but there was no way round that and as we wanted it to sound more like
AC/DC than Chris Rea we went for the high one. So here it is.
From start to finish in Realband. It's best if you can play it LOUD.

ONLY WHAT SHE WANTS TO
You could say you love her, the way you always do
Get down on your knees, swear that it's all true
You could say you're wounded, tell her that you're hurt
You could tell her anything but it wouldn't make it work
Because she hears only what she wants to.

You could take her diamonds, you could take her pearls
Take her on a trip to see the seven wonders of the world
Stand her in the moonlight by the Taj Mahal at night
You could take her anywhere but it wouldn't make it right
Because she sees only what she wants to.

Try some conversation, try to buy some time
Talk about commitment, try to see some sign
Ask for confirmation, ask her for her hand
You could ask for anything, but she wouldn't understand
Because she gives only what she wants to.

Many thanks, as always, to everyone who has the time to listen.

ROG.

ROG & Neil,

Yes, much heavier than you usually do. Those drums are stellar! Great licks by you and Neil. Going the Steven Wright direction!

This is nice change from what you typically do. Seeing your other side!.

It's obvious the two of you put a lot of time and effort into this. And thanks for the detailed explanation. the extra reverb is perfect for this one. The prosody between lyric and music is a perfect fit.

Great job! You and Neil rock! No chance of an afternoon nap after that! And yeah ... I turned the volume up.

Best to both of you and kudos for a great piece of music.

Alan

Awesome Rock'n'Roll!

Played this as LOUD as I could without blowing my speakers. EXCELLENT MIX!!!

Great job on the Baker/Moon drums! They sound incredible.

LOVE the guitar work. Awesome vocals.

This is what you would get if Tom Petty fronted Cream - ROG'n'Neil...

Great listen.

Drums sound huge (thanks for the production tips) and the guitar playing throughout is excellent.
Great heavy rock track.

What a tune! I love how hard and heavy this sounds. Not to mention - those drums are fantastic! The whole tune feels like a rush of adrenaline. It starts off on an aggressive and ferocious note, and carried my attention the whole way through. I don't think I'd change a single thing.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

I agree, this song definitely deals with heavier content than what many of us are used to seeing in the user showcase, but I think it's a really rockin' song all the same. It's pretty profound; personal experience? I'd be curious to hear the story behind this one, if there is one!

Amazing job! Thanks for sharing! You guys make a rad pair.

Hi Alan. Thanks for kicking off the reviews on such a positive note.
Glad you liked the drums. The RDs are great, but they really come into their own when you start to mess around with them. The downward pitch shift, lots of compression and a bright reverb gave us just the sound we wanted.
Hey, sorry if we spoiled your afternoon snooze!

Cheers, ROG & Neil.

Many thanks for the listen Dani.
I can imagine this is a bit heavier than your normal listening choice,
so it means a lot to get a thumbs up.

Definitely reminds me of some good old rock n roll, somewhere between Beatles and Tom Petty. Enjoyed the song, great job.
