I'm the Caliph of California
I am a thief and I should warn you
That I'm a dangerous maannnn
With a dangerous plan....!

I've got a Queen and I adorn her
With precious jewels from every corner
Well, she's a dangerous giiiiirl,
But it's a dangerous world.

[Bridge -- D-D7-G-G7-B7]

If you don't let us in
Our reign of terror will begin
My girl and I don't play
A hefty ransom you will to pay


If we don't get our way,
This wicked world will have to pay
And then my friend you'll see
The price of your hostility!

I'm the Caliph of California
And I believe that I should warn you
That I'm a dangerous maannnn
With a dangerous plan....

Well, I'm a dangerous maannnn
Yes, I'm a dangerous man....!

Well those are some cool lyrics Sho. But you need to not be so close to the mic perhaps put up a pop shield. Record your vocals separate from your music and I will mix and master them for ya.

nice. yes, these are no-fi recordings. Sadly, I am have virtually 0 technical acumen. But, with you on board, I may just be inspired to get a not-so-terrible version together. LOL. Thanks again, and have a great weekend, -Shoham

Ah, there is just something about an E to C transition. I am particularly fond of Emin7 to Cmaj7 myself but I digress..

Anyways, liking this WIP. Do you have a particular style you are thinking for the finished version?

I think something ala Paint it Black by the Stones with some gypsy sounding riffs here and there would go nicely with this core song structure.

Wow, wow, woah! Do I sense a collaboration in the making!?! I like this Paint It Black concept... I have to try this Emin to CMaj7 when I get in tonight. Again, sorry about the delay with your tune, I am looking forward to working on it, soon -- before the next moon? Sorry, I'm in a rhyming mood -- must be the change of weather... thank you, $shoham

haha I would'nt mind a collab but unfortunate the mac is currently on its way to the repair center as I think the motherboard crashed : /

Yea the Emin to Cmaj7 transition is used a lot, Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine" comes to mind. It has a very eerie feel to it, but gentle at the same time

Hmmm... I tried it out, I'm still playing with it, but yes I know Welcome to the Machine. Good tune -- very Pink Floydy! It's all happening!!! -$Shoham

Haha yes I like a lot of major 7 chords. minor 9 chords are probably my second favorite. :D

I actually really like the dirty quality to this track. Gives the vibe that it is being played through an old phonograph. I think it really fits the somewhat ballad quality of the lyrics.

Thank you very much, Memmot. I don't know if you know this olde, but it fits your description and is part of the inspiration of this ditty!

Thanks again, -$Shoham

I have actually not heard this version, but only the Beatles cover! But I can definitely see the influence.

Yeah, I'm more used to the Beatles version, too. But the sound quality on this one is more similar to "The Caliph" ;) -$shoham
