      Let me know how the lyrics are feeling for you... if you need me to shift around the 'sound' and pacing of the lyrics to better fit your vocal style.

        Thanks guys, Tobi, I'll let Steve make the call about the lyrics. We'll see how it flows for him.

          Cool. Good call! The vocalist feeling comfortable with the lyrics is oh so important.

            Bruno...just wondering if you could give some thoughts on Tobi's lyrics in regards to the genre or meaning behind your demo. Also, have you sung the song using the new lyrics and your melodies in the demo?

            For now, I'm good with the flow of some of the lyrics, but I get kind of lost in the lyrics right before the pre-chorus...like I'm not sure I understand where the verse and the pre-chorus starts when I listen to the demo at the same time. Does that make sense?

            Do you think another demo using the new lyrics might be doable?

                .........sorry, formatting in BBcode is a pain... The plapa forum doesn't appear to like all BBcode.

                  Okay, Tobi. Sounds like one of the problems I've got is not having the "piano break" written into the stems that I'm listening to. I think I will need to go back and edit the stems in my DAW (Sonar), and then it may all flow much better.

                    By 'piano break', I just mean the four bars before the pre chorus, where the piano is featured more.

                            Link to The Edge folder with vocal (dry) stem and rough mix from me. These are just my own interpretation of the song using Bruno's melody and Tobi's lyrics. Feel free to provide feedback on anything I've uploaded.
