My song "Claim" is finished. I got bold with this one. With the advice of a good friend I have done my best to add more instrumentation to this recording. This includes a bass line and lead guitar parts. Along with the standard overdubbing but I did not want to get too overboard with the vocal dubs in part because it was distracting to the instrumentation aspect of the song.

Other than that, it is well... in my mind a song that uses a lot of my current favorite buzz words and blends that poetic nature with the standard bluesy love song you'd expect from the correct era. Was going for a juxtaposition of sound with meaning in a way.

I'll leave the term "retractive fallacy" up for opinion on what you think I mean, because it's a made up word! What really matters is what you think it means. ;)

Lyrics:
(Intro Guitar)
(Verse)
I've' been to the east, I've been to the west
and I know that I've seen the very best
How can I claim that what I say is true?
It's because the evidence is you.

(Chorus)
If you're talking truth I know what you mean
Don't you dare bring me your retractive fallacy.

(Verse)
Never seen a flat square that didn't have four sides,
never thought I knew love till I looked into your eyes.
Can't imagine existing in another life,
That's how I know some day you'll be my wife.

(Chorus)
If you're talking truth I know what you mean
Don't you dare bring me your retractive fallacy.

(Solo Breakdown)

(Verse)
Ive' been to the east, I've been to the west
and I know that I've seen the very best
How can I claim that what I say is true?
It's because the evidence is you.

(Chorus)
If you're talking truth I know what you mean
Don't you dare bring me your retractive fallacy.

(Verse)
Never seen a flat square that didn't have four sides,
never thought I knew love till I looked into your eyes.
Can't imagine existing in another life,
That's how I know some day you'll be my wife.
That's how I know some day you'll be my wife.
That's how I know some day you'll be my wife.

Sing how that's one of my favorite top 15 albums I am going take that as a major compliment sir. Do you agree on the lead any baseline along with the ending lead during last 3 lines?

It's also related to ram due to the fact that I am doing all the instruments and vocals just like Paul did on not album. Now that you've mentioned it I can for sure hear some ram influence coming out. I'm glad that this piece came together all right.

The first thing I noticed is how much better it sounds now that you have it filled out.
The lyrics are so thought provoking in a way that I have not found often .
New and fresh is always great
Your softer background voice might be a bit too soft...as a thought.
Overall, great job

Appreciate the compliment on the sound. Getting levels and such is so difficult even after all these years of recording.

I wanted to make a song that sounds catchy but doesn't resonate the way it should until you actually listen and take in consideration of the lyrics. I'm trying to get more "out there" with my writing.

What are you thoughts on the solo, bass line, and the added guitar lead at the very end?
