AUEE-Lyric update 5 bridge

Ok so no we have a chorus, verse and bridge!! All we need lyrics wise now is two more verses… to be totally honest stressing a little over lyrics, their not really my forte. I’m going to attempt to write the next two but am praying for a lyric miracle. Here is what we have so far:

Verse

Partners in crime, thick as thieves,
can I trust you in time?
Or will you deceive?
I suppose it doesn’t matter, I can’t do this alone.
We will be a team until this heist is done and gone

Chorus

100 carat stone, it’s crystal clear
Cut to shine brighter than the moon
Colour of the stars, it’s ours to take
This flawless paragon will be our reward

Bridge

Picking locks, bribing guards,
cracking safes, hacking logs
Jumping lasers, grappling hooks
swapping fakes, lying crooks

Day 643 – Use your gift to serve others

My Daily Journal

Prints are available at http://fav.me/p35077605

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
-1 Peter 4:10

I love playing the 5-string banjo. But it has one drawback. The fifth string will harmonize with only a limited number of simple chords. When other musicians want to play more complicated music, the banjoist has to adapt. He can lend marvelous melodic tones to a jam session only by making the right adjustments.

Just as musicians adjust with their instruments, we as believers also need to make adjustments with our spiritual gifts if we want to harmonize with others to serve God. For instance, those who have the gift of teaching must coordinate with those who have the gift of organizing meetings and with those who make sure meeting rooms are set up and cleaned. All of…

AUEE-Music update 4, more chords

Following one of my reader’s suggestions of the chorus being major I have added on a small section to the chord progression subtly changing it to major. The chord progression now goes;

|Am E |G#dim Am|
|Am E |Bdim Am|
|F     E |F      E|
|Am E |G#dim Am|

|F  Dm|Em  C|
|F  Dm|G     C|

Next I’ll integrate this into the music we already have. I may vary the lengths of these progressions depending on how the lyrics fit.

AUEE-Lyric update 4 verse + chorus

I sat down this morning and wrote what I think will be the chorus so what we wrote last time will be the first verse. Some things to know first, after my research into diamonds I found there are four c’s when talking about diamonds. clarity, colour, cut and carat. I also found that a flawless diamond is called a paragon and is 100 carats. This will explain the chorus. So the song will now go;

Verse

Partners in crime, thick as thieves,
can I trust you in time?
I suppose it doesn’t matter, I can’t do this alone.
We will be a team until this heist is done and gone
(will possibly add more words to this)

Chorus

100 carat stone, it’s crystal clear
Cut to shine brighter than the moon
Colour of the stars, it’s ours to take
This flawless paragon will be our reward

Have you got any ideas to add to this? Please do!! I found I’m not to good with lyrics to contribute away!!

AUEE-Music update 3 + sax

I added two saxophones to the mix to fill out the sound. The choice of instrument to do this was a little bias for obvious reasons but I think it works well. What do you guys think? I’m behind schedule, trying hard to catch up.
Don’t forget to check out the other music and lyrics updates.

Forgot to mention, sorry for the sound quality, I’m using Sibelius and the instruments don’t always sound real. I hope to rectify this by recording real musicians.

Have no idea what this post is referring to? That’s ok check out this one

Norway Eurovision 2013

I saw an interview with Margaret Berger the singer in which she explains the meaning behind the lyrics and it makes a lot more sense.
“…the song is about someone that is helping someone else get out of the cocoon and bloom and take on the world, that feeling you can get from your friends or your lover or something like that, that helps you and makes you feel, fantastic I can do that! Then I feed back, I give you my love because you mean so much to me.”
When asked about the phrases knife against my back and face the attack Margaret said, “it’s about daring to go out of your comfort zone and its not literal. It’s more of a poetic picture or someone pushing you to where your not comfortable.”
I really liked the feel of this song but now I that I know the meaning of the lyrics I like it even better!

AUEE- Music update 2, Chord progression and bass line

So I got a SoundCloud account so I could show you all how I’m going with our song. So far I have the chord progression and bass line. I’d like to vary the rhythms a bit and it’s still clearly a working progression. Keep making suggestions and please critique it, if you don’t like something, or you do please tell me and explain why.
Remember to check out the other updates of the song.

**It is really difficult to hear the bass without headphones!!!**

AUEE-Music Update 1, chord progression

We have a chord progression!!! It took me forever and it ended up being a bit of an accident but I wrote, after a lesson on chords from my dad. In his 1/2 hour lecture I learnt more about chords then I did from taking two years of senior music at high school. So I put it in a minor key because it will match our diamond heist theme (see lyric updates for more info).

|Am E |G#dim Am|
|Am E |Bdim Am|
|F     E |F      E|
|Am E |G#dim Am|

Yay!! I’m so excited about it. I’m still working on the rhythm for it so hopefully I’ll be able to update you all soon. Please continue to contribute your suggestions and ideas, now that we have a kind of feel for the song it may be easier to suggest stuff.
