Hopeless A-Hole


Uploaded .

Another one rebuilt after my freak SD card initialization fiasco. The excellent solo work was done by my buddy Gnasty - I love it!

This is the second part of a two part song. I’ll get the other part up next hopefully.

Badass Solos: Gnasty
Scooby Doo Sounding Intro: Me
Rhythm Gtr: Me
Vocals: Me


Hopeless A-Hole

You got that look on and think I’m so crazy
You got your ticket to ride.
I got my colors that say I am lazy
But I can’t ditch out the pride

The man teaches us to ride out our problems
And that’s a thorn in our side.
We want to display the meaning of life
And put our problems in stride

The bigshot came down to earth to talk to the little people
Buying expensive rounds of scotch and gin
Built his kingdom on the backs of many
Paying them back with laughs and grins

How has it gone so wrong?
(Don’t try to talk about it)
Now that the king is gone?
(You’ll give it away)

The bigshot stumbled into his car
Cranked his stereo up to ten
Drove off at a high rate of speed
And was never heard from again

You knew it all along
(Not say it but you thought it)
That I did not belong
(Under the point of the blade)

I love this tune so very much. The badass rhythms and those vox with these well thought out amazing lyrics. This song freakin rocks LARGE!! I'm glad you asked me to do the lead guitar work on this song for you. I couldn't say no. It's my kind of rocking!!

some serious shredding in here. love that stuff. great playing. The only critique I would offer would be the way you say "ride, inside etc" sounds a little contrived and not in fitting with the heaviness of the tune. It almost sounds like you are breaking into an irish accent. Other than that, it is a super kick ass tune!

Nice guitar! A little hot in the mix (maybe just a tad) but it's pretty sweet. Cool song title. This reminds me Alice Cooper and something else I can't quite put my finger on but this is nice! Where those guitars recorded direct or was the amp mic'd?

...I see that - for this one - you seem to have gone ahead and chosen a bit of a different tone from that used recently on 'Something...' :)) Dig the soloicity!!! Nice, guys.
