I posted a rough demo version of this song a few months back. A bunch of people liked it, and thought it would sound good wit a full band. So i decided to arrange a full backing for it.

Here is what I came up with. The song is my attempt at writing in the style of Paul McCartney

Wow, I really like your song.
I definitely hear the Paul McCartney influence.... Vocals are good, the chord progression and lead work sound great... Lyrics work too.
Damn, good stuff!

How'd you get the full backing done?
Give our band a listen!

Much appreciated!

I play all the instruments myself, except for drums, i usually arrange them using a Boss BR-864 8 track recorder.

In the future i will be looking for a way to export the drums as midi, and apply a drum VST to them, for example, Addictive Drums. It has a MIDI out port, so i'm sure there is a way.

rich,
Instrumentally, I could picture the Beatles doing something pretty similar to this (yes, that's a compliment). All of the instrumental playing is good. Audio quality is very good. Singing sounds a lot different than Paul, but the vocal melody doesn't sound far removed from something Paul would write. Singing could be a little better, but the song writing is quite good!

When you said you were a fan of my work I had a feeling I would be of yours haha

Why arent we in a band? *cough* next beatles

I listened to this twice once on external speakers and once on laptop, Mix wise I would suggest maximizing for laptop a bit more if you end up putting this out for release at somepoint.

Songwriting wise.

Love the chording very complex and warm melody is sweet and homey without being too generic
Vocal wise you keep it very simple but I'd love to hear this with some multi-tracking at :42 some backup to push everything back to the resolve where you have the lead part.

some 4th harmony would work very well during the chorus as well.

My only real crit is the lyrics because the hook could use some rewording ie before the "lonely til the end of time"

Post me a lyric sheet and I can provide some suggestions.

I like the tempo, for some reason you remind me of the white cee lo green. Don't ask I can't make any real relations. The arrangement is really good, and you nailed this style, nice job man. :]
