So, this song had some major twists and turns in development.

It started off as a joke for Bob Dean to show him how (if he really wanted to sound like Lou Reed) he was going to have to use at least ONE minor chord somewhere. But then, when I recorded my guitar parts, I decided I actually like this song, and it was a real song, not a joke. Sorry, Bob. Maybe next time.

I also had a lot of fun combing through BIAB to find exactly the right Real Tracks (including some Brent Mason solo snippets) to get EXACTLY the sound I wanted, to create the “epic swell.” Not “sort of” close but EXACTLY CLOSE. The right panned acoustic guitar I played was the very last thing to go in, as I was asking myself: “Something is missing. What is it?” smile

In this case I was able to get exactly the sound I was looking for by mixing my own tracks with Real Tracks.

Hope you enjoy.

BIG CHANGE OF HEART
By David Snyder

V1

When I walk along
these big city streets
I look down at the pavement
I look down at my feet
if someone's to blame
it's easy to see
the person who's wasted
this morning is me
yeah the problem ain't nothing
but the problem with me


CH

I need a big change of heart
that's what I need
I need a big change of heart
I need a different me
I need a rock 'n roll chart
And a new way to be
I need a big change of heart
And a brand new me
Oh yeah

V2

When I fall asleep
It’s already day
When I wake up it's dark
And I’m too wasted to play
if someone's to blame
it’s easy to see
I have everything backwards
And the problem is me
I need to turn it around
Cause the problem is me

CH

I need a big change of heart
that's what I need
I need a big change of heart
I need a different me
I need a rock 'n roll chart
And a new way to be
I need a big change of heart
And a brand new me
Oh yeah
x 2

Ride out

I need a big change of heart
I need a big change of heart
And a brand new me
I need a big change of heart
And a brand new me
Oh yeah

Yep, definitely a real song. Nice wall of sound with the guitars and pad. Catchy riff, too. More Tom Petty than Lou Reed to my ears, but anywhere in between is a great place to be musically. A very, VERY fine track. Nice work, David!

Hi, David.

I thought the title might refer to how you had a change of heart about the song. wink

Seriously though, no one does "big-hearted rock anthem" like you do.

Well done. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

David, I also got a Tom Petty vibe from then excellent song.
"I need a big change of heart" is a fabulous hook.
Super backing band.
Mixed to perfection.
Sounds great David.

Great Lou Reed song,but you do it better, David. No joke. Not Tom Petty beause thebass player is playing more than just constant 8th notes. I also heard a Tay-Tay quote in there. wink Seriously, this is really a good good song. I can definitely see why you changed your heart about it.


Enjoy whatever happens!
