Description
I had this guitar progression that I used to check out Garageband's new Drummer. I was pretty amazed that I could control how "Kyle" played and how he would follow my tempo. I was happy with the results so what better way to get decent results than to ask Sam and see if he was interested in collaborating. Sam was all over it. The vocal melody, lyrics and execution are some to be proud of. The feeling rubbed off and I'm pretty happy myself. Thanks Sam!

Lyrics
Deeper

falling over thru time
like spinning water
out of order
are you listening now?
listen to me
hear what i'm singing
all i need is a sign
it's not religeon
just decisions
falling over thru time

(it's not open to idiot conversation)
getting frantic
so demanding
got a bigger vision

(no, not open to senseless investigation)
i'm grateful

deeper, on my mind
out of line
with the sane sensations
deeper, paradigm
wanna move like you don't know.

reaching out, even shout
but you don't give a damn
i resign
since i find
i'm wasting all of my time

look in side
of my mind
try to find
what's in line

deeper within abysmal crea-tions
still i move on and don't hesitate


i've traveled deep enough to relate
i was my decision
glad that i didn't bother to wait
devlivered with razor precision

really awesome, guys!
This is great!

Did you have to buy the extra sounds upgrade (~$10) for GB to get Kyle?

Kyle was free
But I liked him so much that I spent 5 dollars to get the extra sounds and drummers for Garageband. One time purchase for all the machines. The Arpeggiator is pretty cool as well and the upgrade included extra synths. I haven't played that much with it but plan to when I get a chance. Thanks for the listen and fav!

Are, now here's a combination of talents worth waiting around for. This is such a seamless collaboration. You two sound like you have been working together for years. Sam, your layers of vocal work on this are so good and you really nailed the melody. The "backer" is all class, too, John. Kyle isn't half bad, either :-) Top drawer. Thanks, Peter.

the vocals comprised: Lead, Ldharm, and 4-part harmonies, so i was wary about sending John (or anybody) 6 trks of vocals. i usually try to condense them for convenience. but John wanted every single trk and man i'm glad i sent them. it's like i can hear each and every single voice in the harmonies. superb mix, i feel. we'll definite hook up again.

Very cool. I keep hearing about the new GB...gotta check it out. This is cool. Cool guitar tones abound and the Feel style is shining through. And then there's Sammy with his 25 vocal tracks ;),,,,,, trust me, I have had the pleasure of mixing one of these multi harmonic vocal pieces from Sammy. It's a bitch, but always worth it in the end.

This did take some tweaking but really for some reason everything fell into place pretty easy, Sam sent me his input one time and after tweaking what he requested I added a few others and everything seemed to sound pretty good. I had a cut on my right index finger so I managed to earn a blister on the thumb while pounding noisily on the bass. Not my forte. I know you were busy so I just left it at that. Thanks for your comments and listen.

Guys ... this is excellent. Sammy your choice of vocal harmonies on this are blown' me away ....Love that ending! very cool Feel guitar and the drums sound real good ... I upgraded to Maverick but I still have GB 11? Is this something I have to download separately? Well, that was an excellent treat ... I'm glad I popped by.

Yes you have to download the new GB and it only comes with one drummer. You have to spend 5 dollars for all of the drummers, I think there's 15 total. This song consists of the drummer that comes with the free download. Thanks for the kind words and the listen!

Sam really nailed the vocals and created some cool lyrics. The vibe is one of my favorite guitar effects and does sound some what like a flange. I like to use that or the Spin Box to give the guitar more depth. Thanks for the comments and listen.

Jim, thanks for dropping by and the comments.

Cool track. Love the guitars and the layers of instruments and vocals. For me this has a later-Beatles tone to it - complex but very musical. Interesting to hear the new GB at work, as well as two fine musicians!

what a great collab.
strong song structure John. the panning guitar sets up a trippy feel. Sammy's multi vocals is stunning.
i've used drummer in logic a couple times, there is quite a few neat options..... one thing i came across is if you cut the sample in key places you can alter the drum fills

That's a great way to manipulate the drummer. I've messed around with it on this song and some other progressions. To me the demo SoCal is my favorite so far. Your right, Sam did a fantastic job on the vocals, really made this tune shine. Thanks for the comments!

Kyle?
Interesting. Maybe I should upgrade.

Anyway, I love the vocals on this. I wonder if the guitar isn't a bit aggressive in the highs. Since my hearing doesn't go as high as it used to I can't be entirely sure.

You guys have a mind-meld going here: guitars all sound so RIGHT, and Sam's vocals (harmonies especially) are spot on. That urgency at the end is spectacular! Just brilliant, fellas.

I'm also a fan of Sammydix. Your collab seem a natural fit. Nice easy going rocker. The song groove gives me a King's X vibe (possibly the vocal harmonies too). Amazing that the drums are just following your lead!
