** New Rock Song - Bedroom Door **

Keep the World Outside our Bedroom Door

I used various mix of Band in Box; Drums, Bass, and live Guitars; Lead, Rock Power Chords. I wanted a stadium rock feel.

Let me know what you think.

This has a great live feel. Love how the drums hit in the first part, how'd you do that? The song and the singing are both very good. The vocal might need a little mix magic to sit better. I could be wrong about that. Overall, it was quite impressive!

I really like the build up with the drums and guitar. Great melody as well.

This song has come a long way from the BIAB tracks.
DRUMS:
Besides the BIAB drum parts I used EZ DRUMMER for the opening drum hits, to get that big 70's stadium sound. I manually played via midi keyboard added ride cymbals at various points throughout the song.

GUITARS
I use REASON as my DAW and it has A-List Electric Guitarist plug-in for some of the chucking guitars and power chords. I also added me playing LIVE Guitar PRS 513 and Boss ME-80 direct. I am also playing Lead Guitars with Strat / ME-80 direct. I sweetened the Lead Guitar lines with Midi Strings playing the same lines so it sounds bigger.

PIANO
I am playing Midi Keys. All midi parts are bounced down to Audio in my DAW (Reason) to save CPU and allow editing, and audio effects.

A mix of Bon Jovi & Terry Jacks with a country narrative.
The tail on the intro drum reverb on the left was REALLLY long.
With the reverb etc there's some de-essing to be done.

Love the drums and the guitars.

Good vocals. Keyboard solo fits nicely.

Big 80s rock sound.

Hi Elliott,

I can adjust with most of the comments; a good song with a nice build up and cool drum intro.
And the vocals sounded very good. Maybe you could bring in a little more emotion further on in the song? (although, behind the bedroom doors there is a lot of emotion going on, I presume).

But I enjoyed listening,
Hans

What a great intro and climax. Your dynamics were fantastic. Outstanding vocal and lyrics that were mixed perfectly.
This sounds pro and is ready for air time IMHO.

Hi Elliott,

What a great song - I loved the whole lot.

What's going on here - 3 good songs in one day!

What I really like is all the different sections of the song and tremendous light and shade. A lot of the songs on this forum have a good idea but they tend to be one trick ponies. I am also guilty in this in some of my songs.

In particular:
Opening - dramatic and tremendous energy.
Verses starting at 48 seconds - great change of pace.
Refrain at 2:06 - perfect
Second refrain at 3:06 - even better.
Back to the verses at 3:22 - this is how to end a song.

Vocals - I liked your talking/singing style - perfect for this song. A couple of notes in the first half of the song at ends of phrases are a touch peaky. But I think you can easily fix these with a few cut and pastes from later in the song. It is worth it for such a good song.

Let's hear more.

Best Regards
Nigel
