im just going to paste what i wrote on my myspace blog so it makes sense to you

"I feel like I've finally become acquainted enough with playing guitar and singing to make 'real' songs. Its sooner than i expected (just about 8 months since learning to play guitar)
I actually think 'perfect' fits better than 'real' as a label for the songs. its not that that they are perfect, but its that they are perfectly me. I'm quite positive that from this point forward i will be able to stop hiding my music from (most)everyone and start sharing it. I made my first perfect song today. I will upload it later after i finish mixing it."


its called we are not the same.

and now that ive actually finished it i can safely say i feel the same. I just feel like everything is perfect, every voice crack, every off note. its a very strange feeling, but its a feeling i get when i listen to much of my favorite artists, and....yeah....thats it

thanks, i only whipped it up in a couple of minutes, its not the final one but maybe ill probably do something similar. I need to do something I can silkscreen onto cd cases keepin' it simple :P

Very nice song, but I'd record it at a higher quality if I were you. At points, you can't hear the vocals through the white noise. Also, there are a few random tempo changes in the middle that sound a bit awkward =]

We are not the same: cool guitar riff. the recording was quite buzzy, but i think it was less the mic, and more the preamp, if there was one. i really thought the harmony guitar rifff was cool. nothing was terribly complex, but it really worked well. i noticed that as you proggressed in the song, you sped up the tempo.

the vocals were good, but they were a bit monotone in some places, and when you tried to break out of that, you got a bit out of key. overall, this was nice.

Hey man. I really love this song. The lyrics sound great and I love the feel of it. It reminds me a lot of some of the acoustic cuts on Conor Oberst's new solo album. Great, great job. As has been said, there are a couple temple changes, but that's alright because it gives it a rough feeling. Just make sure you don't keep speeding it up or else by the end of the song you'll be at twice the speed you began. This reminds me a lot of Conor Oberst, which is a huge compliment. Great job! Mind critting mine?

great job dude!!! very melancholic... reminds me of William Fitzsimmons. i do have two critiques... first, your vocals are great and fitting for the song, but you DO get a bit pitchy sometimes which is fine for bedroom recordings but unacceptable for any professional aspirations. just work at it... it'll come. second, i think your tempo sped up a bit halfway through the song.

c4c?

Sounds good! Really like the lyrics.

Main thing I would suggest maybe is trying to mix it up a bit, I'm pretty sure its essentially the exact same guitar riff through the entire song... (bass notes and then 2-3 high). You change it up in the last 30 seconds or so, maybe that's all you wanted to do. A chorus or change in chords even wasn't very evident to me, I kept waiting to hear another rhythm with a chord change but never came.

I recommend using a metronome when recording songs. That way the tempo won't change. Guitar is okay but the voice needs some work.
