Hey Roy. Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to review a song of mine I call Orbiter. To remind, it was one you like for it's john-lennon-ish qualities but you pointed out some issues with the mix and vocal problems. I just wanted to thank you for that because I do need to hear it and am going to see what I can do about rectifying it. PS. Love the broadjam site. Having a great time with it.

Hi Clayton, I really enjoyed listening to "Tequila And Cold Showers", totally my kind of style and sound ! I forgot to mention that the twang/chorused guitar is a nice touch. The singer has a lovely voice. All the best from France, Pierre

Hey, thanks Pierre. It was kind of a different thing I was trying for with a brand new singer and I have to admit, I like the way it came out. By the way, I listened to some of your material and back at ya, really cool. I like a little darkness and beauty. Very very cool.

Hey Jeff. Thanks for reviewing a coupla songs of mind. Along with your generous comments, I appreciate you took the time and I can see you know what you're talking about. Don't know if you recall this song Orbiter specifically, but I wanted to see if you could help me with a good comment you made. you said you thot I needed a 'chord bridge' between the sort of verses and 'inspire' chorus. and I completely recognize something doesn't work there and I liked your idea, if I know what it means. Ha! I make em up sometimes but I don't slightest idea what I'm doing. by 'chord bridge', do you basically mean kind of a chord progression between those things? or something else? cuz i sorta like that idea, but if you got better even....
thanks again.

Hi--the short answer is yes that's it. I'll listen again tomorrow and be more specific. That's a heck of a good tune already.


Radiation Mountain posted over 30 days ago


Oh it's so much easier to toss out some perky comment and walk away; specifics are hard...

I think what my ears wanted was: (1) change from the acoustic strum pattern and |(2) the key of C I think (1) is probably more important because it works like it is; I just think you need a texture change most--like a tremolo electric whole note chord strum or the sound of a think rhodes piano.

Couple suggestions to try just for fun: on "aspire" go to a D major instead of staying on the Aminor the whole time (you are tuned down a half-step no? so I'm referring to the chord shapes) and on "something worthy" go to F. Or start "you inspire" on Bm and then go to F on "aspire" --the tritone chord change is a cool sound. But that's me.

Now I realize this tune reminds me more of Foo Fighters, Billy Corgan, and Pete Yorn. I'd suggest having a close listen to a number of Pete Yorn tunes for ideas.

Please post if you do a revised version; I'd love to hear it!!!


Clay Sparks posted over 30 days ago


I did tune a half step down on this. Some good ideas to try here. Like I said, you recognized a thing I always was unsure of in this one and kinda got a little lazy with it, as I unfortunately have a want to do. But I'm going to try some of your suggestions and see what I can do. I'll surely let you know, and again, thanks for taking the time.
