VOX, Guitar, Drums and Keyboards - Important

I was thinking how to describe the feel I was after ...... if you listen to the singing at the start of the two links in the creative brief you will get the idea. .....

The singing is like 'I'm totally knackered and hardly have any energy'. Almost singing to yourself in a low voice like you might do if you had a sleeping baby in your arms. - so should try to get the feeling of being a bit subdued and reflective particularly at the start .... of course at the end and the bridge you can go to town.

The same in this song - you are wondering around in a desert ... no water .... totally knackered ..... but in the end see the oasis on the horizon .... so the mood picks up.

 

Guitar solo listen to the links for feel. Start out with hardly playing the strings at all with the plectrum ... but then building up with the ebb and flow of the song [it is a very long guitar solo ....]

 

Keyboards .... as a guide, listen to the organ in the 'Since I've been Loving you' ..... In the next mix of 'Wandering Endlessly', some of the rhythm guitar can be removed from the mix to accommodate if it needs to give space.

 

Most importantly ... play with feeling .... get in the zone of being a bit vulnerable and lost at the start ....

Lyrics

 

Wandering Endlessly - The Mirage - Lone Traveller

Verse I
wandering endlessly
traveller alone
roads unknown
on my own

broken pieces
haunting memories
make the collage
my mirage

Chorus I
lifes endless ocean of sand
clinging and
slipping and
shifting away
lifes endless ocean of sand
a-fflicting and
sifting and
drifting away

Verse II

shifting dunes,
distant oasis
is chanting her runes
humming tunes

broken pieces
haunting memories
make the collage
my mirage

Chorus II
wondering endlessly
heart?s tender fire
a burning desire
to- finally cross the wire
just a bit further
and, just bit higher..
