Ok as part of a project about the Lincoln Murder conspirators i needed to write a song, all that was required was to write lyrics but i decided to record it so my teacher could get a feel of how it went. its my first song that i actually recorded vocals and they really suck, the sound quality isnt the greatest and i didnt really spend too much time on it so its kind of sloppy but i would like input on it.

edit: its on my Profile

leave a link and i'll crit yours.

and also note that this is supposed to be like a civil war folk song, and not my way of sticking it to america

edit: here are the Lyrics that my teacher will also get

So We’re Gonna Kill Lincoln- Civil War Folk Song

So we got some bad times
The Civil wars over
And everybody’s got to try
To do something about those Yankees

So were gonna kill Lincoln
But we don’t know what to do
We got to get together
And think this one through
If you remember when we last tried
Our plan was the one that died

So were gonna kill Lincoln
That’s what we’ll do
And we’ll try to disguise
The ideas in our mind
And hopefully in the end
Old Lincoln will be dead
Old Lincoln will be dead
Old Lincoln will be dead

We tried to talk
We tried to reason
We tried to understand this old man
But in the end we got help the south

So were gonna kill Lincoln
That’s what we’ll do
And we’ll try to disguise
The ideas in our mind
And hopefully in end
Old Lincoln will be dead
Old Lincoln will be dead
Old Lincoln will be dead

And hopefully in the end
Old Lincoln will be dead

The End

lol that was so ****ing awesome ( i thought anyways) but serously man i think you might fail your project.......... or maby not. i dont know how i would even approach something like this. I would go with it, not like the teacher can really fail you for writing a bad song cause i think that might be only song written about the lincoln murder conspearices in a long time if ever........ sorry this post was of no help

Dude can't really comment on the Lincoln song although somewhat quirky... but what interested me was the no name song, think you've really got the basis of a decent tune there. liked the lead over the top. needs to be played a tad cleaner / hitting the notes in time... Dude really think if you work on that then you've got a decent tune on your hands.
