Sorry for being offline for a week or two. This is the next version. I've added some guitar fills in the second verse. Also, this version has the full length of the song (the others just stopped somewhere in the middle of the song). Some problems I (still) see: - The third verse ("Guns are blazing...") needs some minor element (change) in the arrangement that sets it apart from the previous verses. Otherwise it gets a little tedious. But I don't know which. It could be related to the rhythm, but then we probably need to change drums and bass. - The song has no real ending and I don't know how to build it from the available seps. It just falls apart after the last chorus. But at the same time, there is not enough space to do a fade-out (otherwise, this could have been an alternative). - Parts of the backing vocals are not in tune. This is why I needed to drop some lines altogether. Other parts are still there, but should be corrected (not by auto-tune gadgets, but by singing them again). There may be other issues, but I can't remember them at the moment. :-)

Wonderful. You're probably right with the verse 3. I'll try to come up with something. Suggestions from all participants are welcome. Yes. The end is a issue. I've altered the vocals since Kim recorded her backings so, that's probably why it doesn't fit.

Some notes in the backing vocals are just wrong, so it's not possible to fix these lines by changing the lead vocals. Maybe they were recorded using a previous version of the playback where the underlying chords were still a bit unclear (one potential reason why things like these happen). But I think this is easy to fix once the rest of the arrangement is settled.

Hi friends, ending solution if you need would IMHO do a loop fade out. I can redo the ending with just plain beat and do a slow fade think that would probably work. What you think ;-) Cheers. Chris.

Thanks Chris! "Loop" and and "fade out" could be the keywords. I tried something using the seps that I have ... https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/863505/file/871734 You can still hear the edit points in this draft, but this can be improved so it sounds more natural.

Thanks Kim! I just uploaded a mix WITHOUT Kim's vocals for this purpose. I did not use the fade out I suggested yesterday (or rather dwfreak suggested it), just in case Kim wants to sing something there. https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/863505/file/871891
