Send Me to Jail

Uploaded .

So 50/90 is an unnatural forcing of a crap ton of songs in a relatively short period of time. We’re half way though and I’ve learned one thing. I’ve learned how easy it is to repeat something you’ve already done. This one sounds a LOT like a song I mixed and posted last night.

The lyrics are a Florida Man story. I’ve attached the link. The rhythm guitars are Fender and the lead is the Les Paul.,0,878488.story

positive thinking
its all about the up side
never let your crimes
hold you down

Got to get myself
back to jail again
got to get myself
back to school

gives you so much time to
learn to concentrate
and study hard

I have so much to learn
So many subjects
I am guilty please
Send me to jail

You don't need to make excuses for anything here. It's your song, you can present it just how you like and feel good about it. Jolly good song.

I appreciate wanting to bring the vocals out in the mix more but that would mean someone might hear my awful voice and nonono we can't have that. Not to mention the terrible lyrics. Urgh. Bury those vocals! I also like having the excuse that as I am a guitar player first and foremost, I naturally want the guitars to overpower everything else. In all seriousness, I agree the vocals need to come up... I just can't bring myself to do it.

I will have to disagree with the commenter below me -- I dig the vocals as they are in this one. Choice lead break, dude! Yeah, I'm into this, and appreciate the mix down and mastering job as is -- Rock on!

I like this. Reminds me of Steven Stills. But you need to bring your voices out in the mix. As loud as the guitar, at least, when you are singing.
