This song was started at about the same time as my last post. It's a darker look at things.
The instruments are all BB with RT's except the Tele.... lead mostly. See if you can figure out who I was attempting to channel on that lead. Once In A Lifetime
This was a combo of the hard rock styles and baritone vibrato guitar. The tracks and style are:
Drums: Southern even
Guitar 642, 639, 1042, 2444
Live tele on the lead solo and fills to the ending.
And the style is Diesel: heavy southern rock
Steel and concrete all around shadows move across the ground
Sounds of silence on the radio flashing lights to tell me where to go
Darkness on the city streets, Lovers tangled up in sheets
Windows wide open to beat the summer heat oh the summer heat
Once in a lifetime, someone special comes along
Once in a lifetime, you write that magic song
Once in a lifetime you really get to live
Once in a lifetime
Lonely people everywhere, living life, don't really care
Content to simply sit and stare, at nothing ..... at nothing
Day by day life passes by, amazing how time just flies
Pleasure and pain are just the same.. in the blink of an eye in the blink of an eye
I used a few things on this that I don't usually use.
Sonic expander on the mains, and multivoice chorus on the guitar. The dirty sounding beat freqs on the second part of the solo are intentional and done by letting certain strings ring while holding a very close note on a different string. I liked it so I left it as opposed to redoing it clean.
Comments as always are appreciated. The writing, the mix, the playing, the weather....
Edit: Put on some nice cans and crank this baby up
