Conversation Song, by Feter


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Feter sent me this song, a 2.43 long conversation between a man and woman in waiting. He asked me to sing the female pert and then graciously let me change nearly all its words. (I’m so picky) Then he graciously asked me to post it on my page, even though he did all the playing, half the writing and half the vocals. Thank you, Feter!

Feter: composition, most excellent guitar playing, lyrics, vocals

Lyrics
Good morning my dear lady
Good morning oh, what a day !
You seem pretty weary
Well, what can I say….
Hold on my sweetest love
I will, but it’s so much work
There will be a day to rest
It seems so far away….
Look babe what have we done

Its getting me to much weary
I hear what you say
Isn’t all about the faith
It’s hard to see a way
But we all hope for the freer
I know it will come
He promised us to help us
Look up and hold on
Look Babe what have we done

You took me so serious
I’m waiting to see
I told you I’ll do it
It takes more than love
I want to be an overcomer
So much to go through…
Come and give me a hope
That’s all that I can do
Look Babe what have we done

Roxylee said 3304 days ago (November 6th, 2008)
Thank you, Lena
When I first head this one, I loved it. Feter's picking and chording is wonderful here. The concept of a conversation is always fun for us to do (like Jangling Conversation) and we wanted this one to be real instead of a parody. Hopefully, we'll do more of these. Thank you, and we are happy that you liked it enough to dl! :-)

drakonis said 3305 days ago (November 5th, 2008)
smiles
always gives me smiles to hear harmonies between New York and Syria... what a great place, gives me hope. Thank you Roxylee and Feter, this is unique, and Feter's guitar work and singing mesh very nicely with Roxylee's singing and harmonies, or is it the other way around? Doesn't matter, another sweet gentle pop-ballad.

However, I am probably almost as anxious as Roxylee for her to get a replacement audio interface so she can use her nice AKG condenser mic instead of the slightly muffled Samson USB mic.

Feter, your side is nice and clear sounding.

ttfn,
Drakonis

of mics and men
Uh, um, you must have skipped the liner notes in your packing to get away for the weekend. Thank you for taking the time to come here for a listen during all the prep. I always appreciate your detailed appraisals, my friend. I hope the mic/pre is working right. I have the pre gain turned almost all the way up and am standing 3 inches from the mic to get a decent level. I hope the mic isn't messed up- shouldn't the Perception be more sensitive than this? Any tips from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Muffle is a bad thing! Feter recorded in a studio and think he used an AKG studio mic, no idea which interface. I love doing harmony and this song was also fun, being a conversation. Yes, MacJams is such a great place for bringing the opposite sides of the world together in song! Thank you again for introducing me to this community and for always being there with your friendship and encouragement.:-)

Bright
Bright and hopeful tune.

Reminds of the flavors of innocent happy tunes sung in those 60's coffeehouses. You know, the ones with the red or blue checkered tablecloths and those well waxed over Mateus wine bottles candles a glowing.

You guys would have made for a wonderful evening.

Ahhh... thank you for the mental picture
I had forgotten about those Mateus wine bottle candles! I can see the place you describe, and Feter is on stage, scanning the audience to call me up on stage with him, as I try to hide behind the waiter. Wait- the people in the place are all MacJammers who will join in. I'm not shy anymore! Thank you, and I am smiling that this brought enjoyment to you.

I hope my voice holds out for years and years because I love to sing, especially harmony with others. Thank you for stopping by. The chords and structure that Feter played are great, and I keep humming this tune. I'm sure the Quiet Man thanks you, too. ;-)

Two overcomers...
in music, life, heart, and friendship.

What a treat of a song.

When do you go on tour? Can I tag along and carry the equipment?



Roxylee said 3304 days ago (November 6th, 2008)
Tell you what, my friend
You can carry the sax, harp, clarinet, and the plethora of other instruments you can play, as long as you play them in the band. :-) Thank you for your wisdom, friendship, and listening ear.

Joe Brady said 3305 days ago (November 5th, 2008)
Conversation....
A great idea and well done. Like a great stage song, this tune illustrates how two ways of looking at life compliment (and may ultimately depend on each other) and make up some of the parts of the thing we call love.
I love the pickin' too.

Hi, Joe
Thank you. I love how music allows me to sing parts written about someone else, yet I can relate, having experienced many of the same things throughout my life. It's like acting, but not. It seems we are all waiting for things to change. Music helps along the way. Thank you for commenting.:-)

elfdaughter said 3304 days ago (November 6th, 2008)
Beautiful...
Amazing work, you two! Your voices complement each other so well. Even though there's a noticeable difference in the recording values (sorry, Roxy, but your mic isn't as powerful as Feter's it seems), it adds to the piece, rather than detracts - to me it seems that because of that, although its a conversation between a man and a woman, the woman seems to have gone away, and it's more of an internal conversation, or the man conversing with the memory of the woman....anyway, it's a definite one to add to my faves list.

Roxylee said 3304 days ago (November 6th, 2008)
Wow, great insight!
Thank you so much for your observation. Yes, one side sounds clear and strong, the other a bit muted and distanced... I'm glad that you see this as a strength to the song, rather than a drawback. I pour through the audio catalogs, drooling at the superior equipment I can't buy. If anyone in here wants to give me pointers on how to get a better sound out of my cheesy setup, please email me!!

Very very nice. I particularly like the unencumbered rendition with just guitar and 2 voices. It needs absolutely nothing else. What a nice surprise to download this for many many listens. Thank you.

Went for a looong walk this weekend up a mountain in Wales and at the top, as i stood there with the rain and wind driving into my freezing face, this song kept playing in my head.
It's very catchy and stayed with me very clearly after one listen.... I've given it a few more now and it's really great.
This is a cool tune

PrototypeEightyOne said 3263 days ago (December 17th, 2008)
YO
not within my normal boundaries of listening, but i actually really enjoyed this. I liked the guitar and the mix was nice and clean. I loved how the vocals went back and forth, and it was written well. There is a noticeable difference with the mics, feters sounding more clear picking up every characteristic of his voice, but yours feels a little distant and heavy on echo or reverb? or maybe pushing out some low end? not exactly sure technically what it is, but in any case it still sounds great. It doesnt take away from anything, just mildy takes away from that intimate feeling..but what can you expect your thousands of miles away and using different equip! So with all things considering this was GREAT! good stuff roxy and feter!

Roxylee said 3259 days ago (December 21st, 2008)
Thank you!
It's so cool that you listened to this, even though it's not your usual genre of enjoyment. i really appreciate your feedback. Feter recorded this in a real studio, and I have an inexpensive mic and know next to nothing about EQ. I'd love to have my vocal tracks EQ'd by someone who knows what they're doing, or have someone show me how to make it better using just GarageBand. I don't even remember what I did to this- maybe it would have been better dry? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm glad you liked the lyrics- we each basically wrote our own parts and it was fun to sing in the conversation style. We thank you for stopping by. :-)

I just think its great that Feter can get studio time and we get to hear more of him. You guys are the folksiest team on the Web. The sweet honesty of Rox's voice contrasting against that earthy smooth baritone of Feter just make this another treat. This tune is also meaningful to me as my daughter just gave birth to another promise in Dec.

Thanks guys,
