I'm going out of town for the weekend to visit a friend, so I'm not going to be able to record anything. I'll still have internet access so I'll check back here in case there are any problems with the uploads.

I loved drum beat 2...I will probably jam with that sometime soon...thanks KK

Are 1 and 2 on the same BPM? Do you use a metronome or anything? Not necessary, just wondering.

I play a heavy acoustic rhythm guitar, I throw in some licks and hammers/pulls things like that. Not too great at solos but I am if I make them up.

I have a fairly baritone voice, could do some singing too. I sound like maybe a Jack Johnson with a dash of Mason Jennings and Ray Lamontagne.

Have a kick@ss weekend, not sure if I'll get the time to check in, but I'll be practicing a bit of guitar on the drum tracks, see what I can come up with.

Cheers

Default Song Lyrics

I made this one up today. I wanted something energetic to go along with the drum beats I've been able to download and listen to so far...maybe at 160 bpm or something, though I'm not exactly sure if that's right.

My lyrics are usually much lighter, happier, so let me know if I should keep it lighter...

It's obviously about ending a fleeting yet profound relationship--it is a mix of aggressive retrospective regret, silly sarcasm and angry realization, with the residual wonder of what could have been or could theoretically still be.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song: “No Boat for the Flood”

Verse:

I am in a big snafu, can’t find a way, find my way.
I am made a big fat fool to roll away roll away
Ditch this, crumple me and toss me in, toss me in,
Switch hit, crumble me like porcelain, porcelain

Bridge:
I…have no boat for this rain.
Make it swift, I’ve no boat for this rain

Chorus:
This love was a shooting star so bright but so far
Removed from our grasp. Sure,
This love was a flashing glimpse of, but like the H blimp
We burst from, true rapture.

Verse:
Maybe when I’m reborn you’ll take me back, take me back!
Bella, I’m a Quileute son, we’ll make a pact, make a pact.
You’ll be my kitty and I’ll be your gilla man, gilla man
Who am I kidding, you’ll f*ck me up and kill again, you’ll kill me again.

Bridge:
And I…have no boat for this rain
No, I have no boat for this rain

Chorus

Outro:
If the phone rings will you jump all up and laugh “Oh! It’s him! Oh! It’s him!”
If the phone rings will you just ball up and grrr “Oh, it’s him, oh, it’s him.”

You should replace "Snafu" its a weird word and doesn't sound so great if you listen to it with that word, you should replace it.

1 and 2 aren't the same BPM. I didn't use a metronome or anything, I honestly just sat down and played the first thing that came to mind and repeated them for a few minutes. I tried to keep some sort of consistent pattern going while improvising a bit in between.

Also thanks, I will have a kickass weekend.

Okay, here's a song I wrote-

cavanherk-My Everything-vocals-rhythmguitar.wav

Hope you dig it.

Maybe we could throw drums on top of it next? What you think, KK? I'm thinking something similar to drum beat 2 in the verse, and something like beat 3 in the bridge/chorus would be solid. Let the creative juices flow...
