Description
This song is the first I ever tried to record! I laid it down in my basement with my Apple Macbook Pro laptop and the aptly named recording program, Garageband. The drums are live, thanks to my buddy Kris Crawford. The guitars and bass were recorded directly into my computer using the modeling provided by Garageband. The vocals were recorded with a $99 MXL mic running through a Presonus pre-amp. I had a LOT of people tell me I couldn't make music like this using these "limited" tools.....It's nothing fancy, but I think it sounds decent AND it was easy and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to hearing what others think...

That's a solid tune! Much better than my first effort! But something tells me this isn't your first time doing home recording. Welcome to Macjams!

wow
Bloody good for a first recording! Great tune, reckon it would really rock live on stage (not that it doesn't recorded), it's just so tight. Some people don't know what they're talking about, I too use a $99 MXL990/991 Combo and i think they're great!
Thanks for the tune!

Very good
very professional, very Cult sounding. If you keep this up you'll probably start one of your own. This is as good as a lot of what I remember was on the radio. What's your band name?

This is good enough to keep, so I will. Hope your next, a-hem, attempt will be out soon. Keep em com'en.

You are good.
I always ask for lyrics. Drums and guitar are great. Like the hook: Wake me when the dream is over. Keep them coming. Thanks.

Coolness
I hear a lot of James Hettfield in this. Sorry, I probably butchered his name. You know, the singer from Metallica? Yeah, him. This is cool. I like the effects on "wake me..." that adds some variation to the tune.
