the guitar tracked left needs simplified to go with vocals......i just quickly sang over the instrumental track.....also needs a chorus added.....etc....

needs a bit of work and needs a change for the chorus....think of a chorus coming in pretty much where it ends
was thinkin of using the lyrics you had for a chorus Johnny.....could maybe use another verse tho...i forget how much is on the other post.......i'm goin to go and check.......

edited how i see them fitting this idea
Spent half my life just tryin to survive and the other half killin myself
never having more than the day before, putting my life on the shelf
been running trying to stay ahead of the dark, but I just can't find the light
just when I think I'm almost there, day turns into night
hey good to see you come on in, welcome to my show
Been drifting around these empty streets, never staying anywhere too long
been wanting make everything alright, but the darkness swallows my tongue
tired of living with this pain inside, knowing that I was wrong
but no one sees a man in the shadows, there's nowhere I belong
Hey good to see you come on in, welcome to my show
Can you see me .. I'm the man in the shadows
can you hear me .. I'm the whisper in the dark
I've been gone way too long my friend
and feel I'm never coming back again
I'm the man in the shadows ...just a man in the shadows
another verse and chorus maybe

this world is full of abandon roads, they always seem to call on me
where lost and broken souls , wander 'round aimlessly
i stay in the shadows behind the light , so no one else can see
the pain of the choices that have brought me here, and my insecurities
Just some ideas , see what u think ?

i was thinking if we do that "can you see me i'm the man in the shadows, i'm the whisper in the dark"....before each verse
and after the last verse, before the chorus.....not got the music worked out for chorus yet....it'll be something nice n simple....i was thinking one chorus would work on this idea.....maybe do the two verses like we have, then a wee instrumental verse, third verse with new lyrics then chorus and instrumental to finish
will try and work on the chorus...see what happens...lol

this may be a hard one to re record and keep the feeling.....it's a simple enough blues progression A A D A E D A ...i think
i recorded the bassline first at night, the guitars the next day, then quickly added the vocals.....the music was just improvised and i never had any real expectations, but now i have an idea of how it should sound it will make the recording process a bit tricky.....to capture the original feel....
i may get a chance to start later today/tonight.......we shall see how it goes ....lol
i like the way Johnny's lyrics work with this......it's been a while since i recorded this way...music first then adding lyrics, i've been doing it lyrics first then finding the music to fit for a while now.....it's good to work both ways tho...

a few mistakes and some gain issues on the vocals.... man in the shadows jam take 2.mp3 10.33MB 2 downloads
the melody needs tweaked on the chorus but i wanted to hear how the chord change would work, i had another idea of just playing the same chord progression(as the verse) with a change of riff or something.....see what y'all think of this tho
