This is a jam by my band Constant Repeat.
the song is called savage and what you hear is not the final version, just a jam. we are about to record this song in good quality.
I did some drum replacements because the room was pretty bad.
Loudness - 14.1 LUFS

Aw, go on then...

Back into writing again, and I sort of jammed away with myself to edit this down from 3 and a half minute acoustic-y thing to a bombastic stadium indie i.e. Killers ripoff :hihi:) two minute pop song without a chorus, but with lots of little variations. Vocals even more nasal than usual (being from Greater Manchester one is cursed, especially when belting it out...) given the inevitable summer cold. :mad:

The bizzle;

Line 6 Variax geetar using 'Tele' and 'Les Paul' emulations
Epiphone 6 string acoustic
Gear4Music 12 string acoustic
TC Aeon sustainer (like an ebow, but cheaper!)
Amplesound AG12
Orangetree Samples Songwriter
Steven Slate drums
Scarbee Rickenbacker bass
Recording of my frankly crap tambourine playing
Some clapping for percussion (bit quiet, but it's there)
Lots of vocal tracks....

All done as usual in teh frootyloops.
