This is a song I’ve had around for a very long time but I could never get the recording the way I wanted. I resolved to do the best I could with it for this month’s demo and quit agonizing over it.

I’m still not very happy with the recording – getting the huge wall of sound I want without everything becoming muddy mush is rough. But the month is almost over and I’m out of time, so here it is for now:

Wow. AMAZING song. Great melody.
Only thing I don’t like is the guitar sound.

Brad mate, you needn’t have worried – fantastic stuff! Reminds me of the mighty Oasis’ more upbeat stuff, but of course with your unique voice and trademark “nah”s…listening a 2nd time now, and already thinking it might be a new favourite of your stuff! Love it!

*Cough* *new album title track* *cough* XD

i like this song a lot, but i don’t see why people don’t like the Guitar, i thinks its great, only thing is i think you could do more with the “Na na nana na na na nana” …not sure buut you usually have good sing along with the random NA’s and Whoa’s and Oh”s

If you want to do something with the guitar, try to do more ‘open’ chords. Not open as in tuning but as in the chords sounding open.. for example the way guitar sounds in Green Day songs… try to find some new distorion settings.

Maybe you have tried that a thousand times, just sayin..

love the song by the way!
