Hello fellow UGers,

I just finished jotting down this little ditty of a song, and I'm not quite sure how to feel about it. I know the mixing could use some work, but I was wondering if there are any more ideas you folks would have regarding song structure or something.

Thanks a bunch in advance, and please know that I'll be more than happy to listen to anything you have in return

The song is called "December 4th", and it's in my profile at the top.

The vocals rock, although it's a bit hard to understand what you're singing, reminds me of Pearl jam.

Yeaahh i really like the vocal !

Very nice voice... Sound to me like a grunge voice !

The tone of the distortion guitar at the end is horrible... Neck pick up with too much of distortion?... Could add something to the mix but lower the volume maybe?...

The other clean guitar sound really good to your mix...

Also? Maybe closing all your instrument track at the same moment? I have the feeling that at the end of the song all instrument didn't finish in same time... Like if your were unplugging them one by one... lolll...

Overall i really liked it! The sound could have been better but sir... You got an awesome voice !!

Keep it up! Currently listening to some of your other stuff.

Schmiffty,
I agree the vocals are not easy to make out the lyrics, but I still think the vocals are good! Most of the guitar playing is good (timing not always flawless, as is the percussion), I like the guitar tone on the clean guitar. The near end distorted guitar is too distorted. The song writing is very good! Please review my music at this link:

Great singing! Like the chord progression to and the harmony on the voice. The guitar melody in the beginning is also good. I like how you sometimes hear your finger hitting the guitar when you strum this happens most often in between the verses where u play some melodies. at 2:15 i would like the vocals in the back to be a little more up front since they are so good! The song steps it up a notch when the distorted guitar kicks in, maybe this shall happen earlier? The solo at the end could've been higher in the mix. Overall a great composition! Keep up the good work and rock on!

Very awesome stuff.
I'd double track the guitar.
If it's already double tracked I'd pan the more far away from one another.

Sounds awesome overall.
Great song.
