  Hey Baby a Gospel Good News song
Posted by: gregr5156 - Yesterday, 07:24 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - No Replies

Hey Baby    a Good News Gospel Song   

https://soundcloud.com/greg-robinson-132330150/hey-baby

Hey Baby! 
Words and Music  Greg Robinson
 
 Hey baby!   Don’t call me no fool
Let me tell you something that they don’t teach in school
It’s about love like you’ve never known
Baby listen please don’t hang up the phone, no baby
 
 
It ain’t mainstream     But neither am I
To believe in someone  not seen with the eye
But known by the heart through forgiveness of sin
Jesus is as real  as the summer wind
 
Hey baby!   Don’t call me no fool
Chillin’ out with Jesus is really really cool
I’m as free as the eagle  released from the cage
No more anger   No more rage    Hey baby
 
bridge
For God so loved world
And I know you know the rest
There’s love for me there’s love for you
And you know that this is best
 
It’s not about boycotts,  not about rules
Or the things that we have done
It’s all about love   it’s about blood
Given by God’s only Son
 
Hey baby!   Don’t don’t call me no fool
Loving my Jesus is really really cool
I’m as free as an eagle   released from a cage
Come on now baby, it’s time to turn the page  hey baby

  I Rest My Soul In You Alone

ALL:  Here's one for the benefit of your critiques.


Thank you,  Neil

------------------------------------------

I Rest My Soul In You Alone


Verse 1


Lord, my tongue sings praise to You
All you are and do tastes good
Your favor drips as morning dew
You show me love no other could

Chorus


I rest my soul in You alone
My one, my only cornerstone
Your peace flows freely from Your throne
I rest my soul in You alone

Verse 2


Lord, I bring you griefs and pain
Troubling fears You care about
Lord, You control my storms and rain
You calm and still my winds of doubt

Chorus

Verse 3


I am saved Lord, by Your grace
Not by things which I have done
You brought me to Your holy place
For time forever we are one

Chorus

Verse 4


Lord, I hear Your Wisdom call
Couns' ling me on right and wrong
You guard my steps, you break my fall
Your Word is Truth, my Light, My Song

Chorus

Verse 5


Praise and glory, Lord in thanks
I prepare for heaven’s home
With countless others in Your ranks
No more to wander nor to roam


Chorus

  "You Can Live Again" - level 3 critiques welcome
Posted by: damp hamster - 03-20-2017, 01:54 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (3)

Some of you may recognize the basic content of this song as I had posted it for critique in it's original 1992 form on CSN's previous site. I have changed the title, edited and rewrote and now I am much happier with the meter and flow. As always, any critiques are welcome - be as tough as you like!


YOU CAN LIVE AGAIN  

V1

I saw you watch a loved one die

Saw him slip away before your eyes

The knife cut deep, the hurt tore you apart


You know that I can feel your pain

My tears for you fall down like rain

Please realize you're that close to My heart

Pre-chorus

Child of Mine, I want you to know

With all My heart I love you so

Chorus  

I've hurt for you, I've cried for you

I bled for you, (child) I died for you

No blaze of glory, only pain

I took the fall and suffered all

So you can live again


V2

Your days feel empty, dark and cold

Sorrow threatens to swallow you whole

You're lonely now, you're crying bitter tears


I know that heartache, I feel you bleed

I'll comfort you in your time of need

So run to Me, you need Me, I am here

  I Am Redeemed (scratch recording)

Hey all,
Here's a new worship song. I'm thinking a good one for altar call time.  Let me know what you think. This is just a scratch recording. I am hoping to get my studio up and running in the next 4-6 weeks and can get a great piano player and much, much better singer.

  Cruisin'
Posted by: firesong - 03-15-2017, 05:27 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (2)

I'm posting this song as a bit of a promo...I do not work for Band in a Box (PG Music) but their software has changed my perspective on the craft of songwriting...as many of us are, I am not a great musician...I do fancy myself a 'fair' songwriter...I've written for 40 years, hundreds and hundreds of songs...most will never be heard and that's OK... songwriting is worship for me and the Lord knows that...but we want our songs and thoughts to be heard so the Lord can be glorified right?

This song was produced with Band in a Box...it's not great but it conveys exactly what I want to convey through it's use of genre, style and tempo...and almost anyone can do it...if you are not a musician but you have a rudimentary knowledge of chords...all you do is pick the style and type the chord in the measure...as with all software there is a learning curve...but even an old dog like me figured it out very quickly...2100 hrs of sound info...it does require 100 gb of free space ( a dedicated computer is a good idea).

If you are a musician, this is A BAND in a box...I let it do the rhythm tracks and then I add what I can do to it...is it studio quality?...NO...but how many top notch professional nit-picking musicians, singers and engineers listen to or will  ever listen to your songs? Be Honest... I'll be honest...none, who cares?  If we're writing songs for producers...well... but if we're writing for the Lord, His church and a lost world...God can bless that...anyway BiaB is a great tool, easy to use and will cost you less than a couple of studio tracks...end of promo!!

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13544287

Produced the track with my Yamaha Tyros 5 and BiaB
I used:BARGPFX.STY Baritone Guitar pop w/FX
684 Bass...686 Organ...Real Drums Nashville even 8 @ 120bpm...405 Acoustic guitar...2499 Baritone electric...
509 Electric Rhythm Dire...1058 Alto Sax Smooth Jazz Poppy

Cruisin'
words and music Dan Simmons

Ooo...Whop...Bop (X4)

Cruisin'...cruisin' my life away
Misusin' most of my time
Losin'...I was playing a losing game
Wasting away my life
Cruisin' on down the line

Searchin'....searchin' down every road
Hopin'...hopin' to find
Someone...someone to share the load
To give me some peace of mind
Cruisin' on down the line

I didn't know where I was going
I couldn't see cause I was blind
Jesus came into my heart
He gave me a brand new start
He brought direction to my life

Movin'... now I'm movin' down a new highway
I'm groovin' feeling alive
It's so soothin' cause I know He knows the Way
I'm still cruisin' but I'm letting Him drive
Cruisin' with Jesus this time

Ooo...Whop...Bop (X4)

I didn't know where I was going
I couldn't see cause I was blind
Jesus came into my heart
Gave me a brand new start
He brought direction to my life

Now I'm movin' down a new highway
Oh, I'm groovin'...Feelin' alive
It's so soothin'...I know He knows the Way
Well I'm cruisin'...but I'm gonna let Him drive
Cruisin' with Jesus this time!

Ooo...Whop...Bop (X4)
Cruisin'...yeah I'm Cruisin' with Jesus this time!

I wasn't 100% sure where such a post would fit, so general seemed safe

My first reason for registering here (besides the faith base, of course) is to have easy access to help with any questions I might come across in my music journeys. My second was to search for some collaborative opportunities to help build my experience. Currently, I'm helping out as the sound designer for an indie dev studio. In my own personal endeavors, though, I've been kind of stale recently and I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things with some help.

I'm mostly looking for someone who could assist me with writing. I have a real knack for making tons of partial projects that never really go anywhere. I suppose best case scenario would be to find a writer who doesn't have the means of performing or producing a song that I could help! Regardless of outcome, my main objective is just to work on things and have fun doing it, and I have every reason to believe here is a good place to start.

I'll spare you my history in music, but if anybody is ever curious, I'd be happy to expand and answer any questions. Thanks for taking the time to read!

Wink I Am Redeemed (altar call song)
Posted by: tpistilli - 03-09-2017, 12:08 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (3)

Here is a new worship song I just wrote. I can hear this being sung during an altar call. I have the music in my head and will post in the song critique when finished. Feel free to pick apart.   Tongue

I Am Redeemed

I come to the altar
And I fall on my knees
I pour out my heart
And you answer my plea
I am cleansed and forgiven
Now I'll start all over again

I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Washed by the blood
Eternally free
I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Through Jesus Christ
I can stand on my feet . . .
(last time) I am redeemed

  Good Day, Everyone!
Posted by: Razerocksxd - 03-09-2017, 01:15 AM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (5)

Hello!

My name is Jared, and to get right to it, I'm an aspiring musician trying hard to learn all that I can. It's been difficult for me to find others to gather with regarding my interests in music, and even harder to find the right help. Of course, that's where forums come in!

Currently, I'm at an average playing level in guitar, bass, and drums, and I'm trying to become better at piano and ocarina (peculiar choice, I know) and I also like songwriting and working with Reaper, my primary DAW. I have a vast array of virtual instruments and I really enjoy "puzzle piece-ing" things together with different ensembles. I wouldn't call myself very good at anything in particular, but I really enjoy playing and writing music, regardless of quality. I've been practicing mixing as well, so I have a lot going on all at once. I know the jack of all trades adage, but I'm hoping to get pretty good at everything I can. Hope to chat with some of you really soon!
