Gabrielle gave feedback to Xack Fischer for “One Dedication”:
This song is really good- probably because it's a very real and sad subject. Creative lyrics, too. If you perform live, I think this one would sound good.

I like the lyrics- especially "for every one star there’s a million not mentioned
they all tried really hard, and they all really meant it"

Catchy beat, too. How long did it take you to write it?

The melody and the first few lines of the song actually popped into my head while I was at a 7/11 and I jotted them down onto my notepad, then I went home and wrote the whole song that night. Thanks for listening!

I love the production value, dude :)

Cool lyrics, as well. What can I see, kid? You are ready for prime-time, for sure. I like this very simple percussion as well. How exactly are you producing it? I imagine that it was something simple, natural that you then looped. Is that right?

Anthemic.

Thank you kindly for sharing,

Since you seem interested, I'll walk you through how I get my recordings to sound clean.
First I record a track of me playing the song on guitar and singing while I listen to a metronome on headphones. Then I usually listen to it for a few days and make any revisions, then I do it again with the second draft.
Then I record the guitar part(s) and the vocals on separate tracks, while I listen to the original recording on headphones.
And then when I have those tracks, I delete the first recording I did, so the vocals and guitar are isolated from each other. That way I can adjust their volumes, play with different effects for the different sounds (like autotune or echoes, whatever).
Percussion is always the last thing I add onto a track, and I tend to just use whatever in within arms reach to record percussions. Usually I have 2 or 3 different simple rhythms on top of each other. This track has 3 different rhythms overlapped.

Awesome. I have to bookmark this :) I like the idea of percussion last...

Funny track, Xack. Kind of sad too at the same time. Always good to hear your voice, man...

Great use of Autotune.

Thanks. It was a last minute choice to use it, but I think it really works well.

Gabrielle gave feedback to Xack Fischer for “Complications”:
This one is my favorite of your new ones. I think the vocals sound best, and it has a bit more texture/complexity than the other 3. All 4 have really creative lyrics!

"but I think that it's my path
I've been working it out and double checking my math
I've added it up, and divided by two
I don't think that I'm meant to end up with you"

A great quatrain. Something of an Ogden Nash quality to it...

I think the buh, buh, buh's should be "love, love, love", but in that same dejected voice. Thanks, X, -Z

Neat little harmonies in this one, Xack! I would personally like to hear little more texture, though it seems like you are going for a minimalist, or lo-fi production value.

Very clever lyrics, for sure. I even feel like you could go for a more upbeat tempo. Sounds like a 120, maybe go for 160... Hopefully mine is constructive criticism!

Thanks for this,

Thanks for the feedback. I completely agree - I think that all 4 of my new uploads are a bit empty. Unfortunately, I don't have all of my equipment so these recordings are just vocals and guitar. I'm hoping to re-work them at some point and add some percussions and other instrumentals... when I have the tools.

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Xack Fischer for “Second Thoughts”:
One of your best yet. Really catchy hook, and nice lyrics. I'm liking the crispness of your vocals, as well.

One thing that I'd like is a meatier middle section, and I think that the amount of verses, and the ending is fine, just maybe some kind of (electric?) instrumental somewhere in the middle. This is great!!

Thanks a lot!!!!!
