Yes I’m still posting songs here! i’m just more focused on preparing a live show which will happen by beginning of july max for sure! (my ultimate deadline)

But in the meantime, i also played a lot of piano and the last two days i’ve been recording this non-stop to the point that i just look at myself and the mirror and it’s pretty scary! a shower and a shave will be really welcome! but i’m pretty happy with this new song! I hope you enjoy it, my first one on the piano!

Looking forward to hear your comments and suggestions!

What I like about it:
I put a lot more airiness in my voice and i like the result, i like the piano

What I’m not so sure:
The end is not very tight, i added the drums as the last step instead of the first one.. so the rythm is a bit off… also maybe the screaming is a bit exaggerated for the song


Lyrics

Dreams Of Yours

Don't wanna do you wrong
I still miss you so bad
But it's getting long
I don't know where I'm at

And how do I proceed?
Don't wanna forget you
But forget you're not here
I honestly need to

You said oh 
Follow your dreams

Your desire to explore
My obsession to write
If someone sings along
Will i feel worthwhile?

Tonight, we watched stars in the park
She laid close to me
Didn't know how to act
I don't know how to be anymore

You said oh
Follow your dreams

I'm never really sure
Whether or not, whether or not
There is a place for us
In dreams of yours, in dreams of yours

You said oh
Follow your dreams

Halftime strategy

Alright, here I’m halfway into the project, time to think a bit about what’s going right and what’s not… First of all, I still haven’t played any live show.. I have one possible other musician with whom I am practicing once in a while, but the truth is I need to meet a lot more people in the scene… So my plan is to join a few existing bands filling for whatever instrument they need (i am trying out for bassist/back vocals next saturday in a pretty decent band) and then I will get back among the musicians crowd and hopefully meet the right people… and well you never know which band is gonna take off too..

Also, I was thinking that if I’m going for the ballads and soft songs, I really need to learn how to play piano properly.. So I’ve started some intensive learning last weekend and will keep doing so in the coming weeks..

Basically, for now, my priorities are rehearsing for auditions to join some bands with talented people, learn their songs, and learn piano… Along the way, I should post a song once in a while and I will reassess the strategy in the end of January

The second half should start soon!
later!

Song #26 – Surviving November

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Half way there!! (26th song of 52!) So I’m back from Spain, I had a great time, but now it’s time to get back to business! Is there a worse month than November? I always get depressed during November and I tried to explain why in this song. Hope you like it… overall i’m happy with it, I think it’s entertaining.. and the good news is this dreaded month is almost over!!

Please don’t hesitate to leave your comments if you listen to the song!

See you next week!

What I like about it:
I like the chorus, i think it flows pretty well

What I’m not so sure:
The verses are ok but could be a bit more varied… The voice is not very clear at some places, the guitar could use some variations too

Lyrics & Chords

Surviving November
Verses: C E7 F G    Chorus: Am Fmaj7/A Gsus2 C E7    (
Tune a half-step down)

VERSE 1
Of all the ways to go insane
Of all the ways to lose your mind
I found one that's pretty damn amazing
Yes, it works every single time

November wind tears out your soul
The freezing rain then makes you numb
A sudden fatigue now swallows you whole
You give up your hope to see the sun

CHORUS
In my eyes, can you see a sign of life?
In my eyes, can you see a sign of life? 
In my eyes, can you see a sign of life?
In my eyes, Doctor will I survive? 
Doctor, will I survive November? 

VERSE 2
Don't dare turning on your TV
Out there everyone has gone nuts
I already couldn't cope with anxiety
And i don't even have The Shot

Still, I venture to buy my groceries
Stay focused, i need to be strong
But is it really necessary?
A whole two months of Christmas songs?

CHORUS

OUTRO
It'd be so much easier, if you'd be here, if you'd be here
It'd be so much easier
Surviving November
