New original song - Take me back

Hope you like it. Any feedback would be awesome.

Walking the streets, all alone
Wondering where that I went wrong
You couldn’t tell me
Honey please, please take me back

I gave you all of me
You said it wasn’t what you needed
I gave the rest of me
You had me on my knees again
Honey please, please take me back

I thought that we had everything
But I was wrong
It wasn’t just goodbye
In your eyes it was so long
Honey please, please take me back
Honey please, please take me back

You said I didn’t fit
You didn’t give a #### about me
You’re out with your new friends
It really is the end this time, you thought that I wouldn’t mind

Honey please, please take me back
Honey please, please take me back

Nice! Very relatable. I wish the guitar didn’t drown out your voice.

Thanks for the feedback Marie. Much appreciated.


Its a little hard to record properly with just an iPhone but I’ll re-record it when I get a chance. Its a little hard due to the remote location I work in (1500 miles from the nearest capital city), in north western Australia. Not much tech here. Hahahahaha.

Thanks for listening, hope you liked it.

iPhone? Ckeck the apple store Luke, GarageBand is free and great for simple 2-3 track stuff…... Plus it comes with a drum machine and all kinds of guitar effects…...... Also, I believe you can still record your video but edit the audio! :)

G’day Japov

I have the app but should really spend some time to work it out properly. I’ve been a drummer most of my life and just starting to take an interest being in front of the kit. I’ll work on it mate.

Cheers for the feedback mate. Much appreciated.

Yeah that’s the downside to GarageBand. It’s not at all drummer friendly. The program is definitely geared to promote it’s built in drums, but I must say for rough draft stuff they sound pretty good.

I’ve never worked with Garage Band, but I know there are a lot of loops available for it and a lot of them are free. Just google “Garageband drum loops.”

One of the sites that came up was this one

The loops sound good but they’re “limiting”.... they’re loops. GBand’s drum sequencer is actually very versatile and intuitive. You can write your own tracks into it or start with something basic and edit as you go. Here’s 2 versions of the same song with 2 slightly different drum patterns and kits…..... I’m still learning myself :)

GBand is definitely worth a free spin!

Good vibe to this mate. I’m really into the guitar riff.
I’d trim your video though so people don’t get to see you setting up/turning the camera off.
Definitely interested in hearing more of your stuff.

Definitely good advice regarding the video. Will change that next time.

Glad you like the riff mate. I have been a drummer most of my life and only just starting to take an interest in being out the front. I have a few other tracks on the forum and would really appreciate the feedback if you get a chance to have a listen mate.

Hi Japov

Yeah mate. I have an E-kit (Yamaha DTX450). Also have an acoustic kit (Tama Superstar Hyper Drive). What can I do for you mate?

Oh, you know….... just be my slave once you get set up to record! :)
Actually, I’m really hoping you get Gband worked out! I’ve listened to several of your
songs now and and I like your style, just need to clean up the recordings a bit. I’d be
willing to help with that if I can, just let me know!

On a side note, I like the way your lyrics start here….. but instead of take me back how about lead me back? Dig a little deeper into the whole
“losing your way” theme. :)

No worries. I’ll have a dig around and have a listen at work tonight.

G’day Japov

Definitely keen to collaborate a track with you. I have GB and looking into recording with it. Not sure yet what I will need to plug into the iPad/Iphone for the best recording sound. The external mic’s on the device don’t seem to give the sound I am looking for. I am sure somewhere I can find an adaptor to plug straight in and play direct to the app.

Let me know if you need drums on your tracks mate. More than happy to jump in.
