Procession moves on, the shouting is over
Praise to the glory of loved ones now gone
Talking aloud as they sit round their tables
Scattering flowers washed down by the rain
Stood by the gate at the foot of the garden
Watching them pass like clouds in the sky
Try to cry out in the heat of the moment
Possessed by a fury that burns from inside
Cry like a child though these years make me older
With children my time is so wastefully spent
Burden to keep, though their inner communion
Accept like a curse an unlucky deal
Laid by the gate at the foot of the garden
My view stretches out from the fence to the wall
No words could explain, no actions determine
Just watching the trees and the leaves as they fall
So as some may already know, I decided about 3 years ago to learn how to play and make music. I especially wanted to learn how to play bass, Peter Hook (of Joy Division) being the main inspiration to me wanting to play.
I have no idea how to really record music (lol) but recently learned the basics of Garageband and attempted to actually record a few things.
This was my 1st attempt. I need to figure out how to properly mix, level, etc. the track, but I wanted to just swallow my pride and put this little sample of it out into the ether. . .
I played everything on it, which includes a bass track, electric guitar, electronic drums and a bottle of air in a can (the "shh shh" sound lol).
It still needs vocals and I'll do it if needed, but anyone interested? I'm not a good singer. . . It wasn't in the cards for me.
Constructive criticism is welcome. I'm learning as I go.
So here's to trying new things and doing what you love. Thank you @peterhook_thelight for the inspiration! You are amazing.... I'll keep practicing.
