*SO I EDITED THIS AND WIPED OUT THE LINK BECAUSE I DID A SECOND / BETTER QUALITY UPLOAD AND I ALSO CHANGED THE CHORUS COZ I DIDN'T LIKE THE FIRST ONE. I'M DELETING THE FIRST UPLOAD*

These are the lyrics I wrote to the song that "Samiamiamsam" gave to me, very appreciated so thank you for that. I hope I didn't ruin the song.. I know it's a bit disordered but I just put the program onto a new laptop and haven't rearranged the settings etc. I will most likely do another recording of this song with better quality :)

(SECOND BETTER UPLOAD)

LYRICS:

"By your side"

If your sad I will be sad with you
When your crying I will dry your tears
Turn your fears around
I'll stand with you and laugh with you
By your side always for all your life
Your not alone

Chorus
Oh, I'm by your side
Forever more
I'm by your side
Love you've never felt before
I’m by your side
Be the change you wanna see
I'm by your side
Yeh, I'm with you

Your heart is broken I know
Mine breaks with you
And I know how you always feel
It's not the end
Oh, there's so much more for you
Your gonna make it through
Hush now

I'm there with you
Through good and bad
I'm there for you
When you get sad
It’s not all bad
Cause you are precious
And I'm not going anywhere
Yeah your an angel
And it’s never fair
Your not alone

Chorus
Oh, I'm by your side
Forever more
I'm by your side
Love you've never felt before
I’m by your side
Be the change you wanna see
I'm by your side
Yeh, I'm with you

You don't deserve what you've had to see
But its all for a reason
One day your gonna see
Just lift yourself up now
Just stand strong somehow
Cause choosing to live
You cant go wrong
Yeah choosing to live
You can’t go wrong
You can’t go wrong

Wow that was fast. I’m working out in the middle of nowhere today so I don’t have a very good signal. I can’t wait to get home and listen to what you’ve done.

Yeah I usually only spend a few hours on one song!
It’s not the best because of quality but will post a better quality one once I’m done :)

I like it TJ. Never in a million years would I have come up with that vocal melody. I mean, you heard my original version. This is a brand new song now. You gave it life, or brought it back from the dead I should say.

All I ask, is when you make it big, give me a writing credit for the music. :)

I think there is room for improvement, but you already know that. Like I said, I really like the vocal melody. But your pitch as just a little off. You are almost there on all of your songs. You are so close. I know you will get there, the more you practice. Take your time, and perfect your art.

Experiment with your harmonies and play around with different effects for you vocals. The only way I'm ever halfway satisfied with my vocals is when I do a two or three part harmony.

I'm really pleased with the work you've done so far with my music. Keep improving TJ. And let me know if there is ever anything I can help you with.

Thanks heaps for the encouragement... Yeah I really liked the music to this so wanted to use decent lyrics for it. The quality is heaps bad because I had to install my recording system onto my new laptop, plus I got a new mic and I haven't gone through all settings to get the best quality yet, I'll do that today so I will record a better version!

Thanks so much again for letting me use your music!

Peace :)

Ver 2 is sounding better. Well done. I like that chorus.

You might want to look at the "Hush now" line - feels like it's too short and kind of hanging there.

You have done it again with a great song young woman! I like this one. Some of the words did not match what I was reading in the chorus so maybe you could go back and make the lyrics right. Glad you are here! You are so welcome as a member! :D

She did a good job with this. I had this piece of music and I could never do anything that I was happy with. So I gave it to her. The next day she was finished.
I wish she had of taken more time on it and gotten a better sounding production. Haven't seen TJ around here in a long time. She had a lot of potential. She was great with vocal melodies and lyrics.

Wow, you two. What a fun collaboration project.
I would like to hear about how you made this work from the technical side.
You were sharing files and probably both working in different software.
Was that a challenge? How did you make it happen?

Here's a tip for TJ that may, or may not, be helpful.

Before I record my vocals I will do a lot of rehearsing to get it right.
And I will even record only one chunk at a time.

I will rehearse the whole song to see where I want to go in terms of range.
Do I want to sing high on this part and low on that part? Or vice versa.
I also work on phrasing. And will mark up my lyrics printout to know where
to cut the lines or extend things. I work on getting the right in-tune pitch
and the vocal melody locked in. This all happens before I hit record.

When I start recording, I stop if I blow a line and go back to start that part again.
Then I work through it piece by piece to make sure the quality of vocals matches the
quality of the accompaniment. If two choruses are identical, I might record both and then
use the best take twice, or keep both if they both work.

- Sketch

PS --- Sam, great job on the accompaniment. It really works well with the lyrics.
I might have added more dynamics to make TJ scream the lyrics. lol
But she might not be ready for that.

Suprised you never heard this Sketch. It wasn't really a collaboration. This was a piece of music I had done a years ago. I recorded a demo with vocals on an old Tascam 4-track. You can hear the original demo here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFCsQgVPtho

I was never really happy with it and always wanted to go back to it.

I re-recorded the music without vocals last year on better hardware. But struggled with what I wanted to do with it.

TJ had stated in a post that she was looking for musicians to work with, and I decided to let her use the song. She had impressed me with her lyrics, and vocal melodies. So I was happy to let her have it and to change anything she wanted. I sent her the mp3 file through email.

I was wanting it to be more of a collaboration and I was willing to rearrange, or change things, but before we could discuss the song, she was finished. Really surprised me.

I liked what she did with it, but it needed a better production. I really liked the new lyrics and the melody she came up with, but her vocals were a bit off. I was hoping she would go back and work on them, but I think she was satisfied with what she had, and that was it. In the end, I was ok with it, because it was a lot better than anything I could have done with it. But I know it could have been a lot better if she had taken more time and had an engineer or producer to work with.

Haven't seen her around here in months. Hopefully, she comes back and continues to work on her music. Because she has a lot of talent. And if she ever finds the right person to work with, she could take those talents to the next level.

Oops, sorry.
I thought this was a new topic.
Funny I didn't remember it. (old guy problems) lol

I didn't bother to check the dates.
Now I remember hearing it before.
Thanks for being patient with me.

When I saw it last night it threw me for a loop as well. I was hoping TJ was back and had a new version. Then I figured it out. lol

Yo. I’M HERE AND STILL AROUND... I’m very sorry I haven’t been prresent but I usually get notifications if there’s a message or a reply in something I’ve posted and I’m still working on some music finding more ways to actually make the music myself or to get backing tracks like this lovely one you gave me and let me do something with it, I love making music and writing lyrics etc so I really appreciated it. It’s funny you say you want me to do a better quality version with vocal also because I only recently just spent $1000 on new recording equipment, the only prob is it’s taking me so bloody long to work the system out. I used to used Cubase 6 Yamaha now I’m using an updated Cubase 10 UK22Ii and omg I’m so clueless with it I have no idea what I’m doing let alone working on my vocals... it’s meant to be better quality too but it’s worse coz I don’t know how to use it properly so maybe I was better off staying with the old version haha

I’m glad you liked the song and thanks for saying I was good at what I did apart from rushing it abit so vocals are off and could most certainly do a better job. I might just put that on my list of to do songs while I’m still trying to work out my new system or whatever keeps going wrong with it.

I’m also actually getting vocals coaching starting early Feb this year too (for the first time ever) so I might just stick around again I’m pretty preocupied with my life atm but never had intentions to just dissapear. So yeah I decided I enjoy singing and writing lyrics too much to do nothing about it so researched some places and I’ve got a free trial for vocal coaching early feb. scared ***less I have a fear of singing infront of people.

Thanks so much for giving me the song!!! If YOU wanna change anything in it then feel free if you wanna make it more a partner thing. That’s fine with me. And thanks dude for the feed back, I don’t even bother warming up my voice sometimes so I will keep what you said in mind.

Thanks guys and chat soon. I’ll have a good check up and catch up on here soon.

Peace
:)
