    Just want to say I checked out that last song, "I See It Differently," again for the first time in a few days -- TERRIBLE! And to think I worked on it for a couple of weeks and didn't see it! You get in a trance and you can't even judge what you're doing. Something better next time!

    I know exactly what that feels like. Sometimes even walking away for an hour can open up things you didn't hear.

    As mentioned in another thread, I had a song in the Ratt-Dokken-Def Leppard vein that I thought might be a good one for Jacob Deraps and Josh Gallagher. I went ahead and finished up the music track and sent it to Jacob's email. I could see he looked because it went up by exactly one view, but a week has passed and I haven't heard anything. Oh, well. I figured.

    So I get to present it to you here! I've done some searching and there may be as many as four or five other bands out there playing `80's-style rock today, so maybe I'll bounce it off some of them. I've also got lyrics and a melody for this but I'll spare you my "singing" (RRvh1 has heard it). This needs a Stephen Pearcy-Joe Elliot sound.

    Like I said, neat tune and some great playing on there!
    You have some wicked licks in the lead parts! Glad you decided to share it on here. Right on...

    Robbie, this track has absolutely set this forum on fire! Or maybe I did myself a huge disservice putting all of my tunes in one thread. It's not so clear when I post a new one.

    I wasn't quite satisfied with the EQ on this, so I did it again. THIS is better.

    Default "The Pretty Ones Always Cheat." Pushing this song.

    This tune has been posted here before, but I've tightened up the mix a bit. I discovered one of the country stations here does a Saturday night local music show, so I submitted this. We'll see if I hear anything. I also used one of the great pics of me made at a singer-songwriter competition as cover art. I guess if no one ever listens to it but me, I'll still have the memory of having done this. Hopefully more "hits" to come!

    If you've got 99 cents burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy it on Bandcamp.

    Thank you, sir!

    A couple of other people here said it was "generic" and "disjointed," but I think that's because it's something they've heard once, with no lyrics. A vocal melody to hook into will make a big difference. I watched a video from the former VP of ASCAP, and he said that in the music business it's presumed it takes eight listens before an audience "gets" a song. It took me awhile to warm up to Van Halen and Led Zeppelin! If I could find someone with a Joe Elliot/Stephen Pearcy voice willing to do it, I would top this off and have something great!

    Thanks for listening!

    Against my better judgement, here's what was considered the best tune by my old band in the '90's. You'll have to put on your 90's ears and remember back when it was very hard for a local band to get a decent-sounding recording (because this sounds like shit!).

    Our singer was 16 at the time, me and the bassist were 21, our drummer was 20. I remember when me and the bass player went to the singer's house and first played this with his new lyrics, I thought, "Wow. This feels like we're playing someone else's song!" The guy who made this (horrible) demo said he thought it could be the song that would get us signed.

    Much to my amazement, we actually got this to a real record company guy (two, in fact). When I met the guy I re-presented him with the cassette wound to this song on side two because I thought maybe he'd missed it, but oh, well.

    Anyhow, here it is. Pardon the poorly-EQ'd solid state amp tone! I still think this song had potential, with better production.
