Hi guys here's a new rock n roll tune, please let me know what you think to the riff and the chorus if you have a couple of minutes. It's a demo so nothing special in terms of production. 

Lyrics

I can feel it growing in my head
I can feel it flowing through my veins
Cos this dreamer never ever left
I know how it feels to be in the morning rain

I don't know here i'm going baby
I just know where i've been
And if you're not what I want
You sure are what I need
Tear down the walls in here
Give me space to breathe
Open up your heart and soul
And your arms to me

I can see the sun shining down on me
I can see the world for what it is
Cos one match will burn a thousand trees
and I know how it feels to..miss

It's great to here stripped back songs of this nature as they invite the listener to fill in the production blanks. That's a wicked guitar tone. I instantly imagined how the drums would join the party in a very Oasis like manner. It's a real rocker of a song for sure. There's even a section for a screaming guitar solo. It will be interesting to hear this develop over time!

Well done my friend!

Cheers lads, yeah Paul @Wicked Deeds it's screaming out for a solo isn't it, I was going to do one for this demo but couldn't be mithered, will do for another version tho.
I need to somehow get drums sorted for my songs but i'm using a digital recorder thing so God knows. I'll just wait until Warners sign me and put me in a studio and the engineer or whoever can do them :) @pompeyjazz
@5 guys named Lars Nice one thanks for checking it out!

Hi !
I like that destroyed sound. It goes well with the grit in your rocking voice.
There's a lot of potential in this song.
I'll be glad to hear the final version  :D

Thanks @Inanité_sonore i've been playing it acoustically recently to get the timing down and i've got to say that the chorus is huge (I don't ever big myself up) thank you for having a listen

Thanks so much @Cawproductions :)

Here's a cleaner, acoustic demo version of the song. The phrasing is coming along a lot better now I think..i'm looking forward to playing it live for the first time on Jan 16th at West Street Live, Sheffield if anyone is in the area and would like to pop along :)

@RealKevM - Writing this as I listen, blimey, your songs have come on a storm, I agree with the other reviewers, subtle Nirvana type drums, and some HUGE punk gtrs, the voice is already there kev.

Great idea Kev.

Got a lot of prod potential, If you don't have a full band to play it live, then I think i'd go for an electric gtr rather than the acoustic, it would be a tad closer to the target genre. Just an idea Kev, and good luck at the gig,  Rich

@cowparsleyman Cheers Rich, very motivating comments. I kind of sacked it all off for a while there, felt little to no point in performing or writing.
I agree the song definitely has to be electric but well I recorded a live video earlier today anyway and i'd love it if you and anyone else reading this would have a little watch :)

Kev, a great improvement in all areas, especially in your confidence in delivery, makes such a difference to your singing, dig the hummingbird...
