I Don't Want To Go To Sleep Tonight (Without You)

richardasomers wrote on 10/26/2009, 9:40 PM

This is a song I wrote in loving memory of my dog. He was the best friend I could have ever asked for. We had to put him down because his hips were going and we didn't have the money for surgery.  He always used to sleep beside my bed hence the name.
The audio was recorded in Magix Samplitude and I have never overdubbed guitar solo's quite like this. I will be making a video for this soon.

Ich freu mich schon auf das Video . So wirkt es doch ein bisschen leer , schöne Melodische Guitar nur der Bass kommt ein wenig zu kurz. Hübsch anzuhören.
  ist mir ehrliche 4* wert!

Love the guitar playing and the composition (the drums do not blend so well in the piece; my opinion of course).

Nice composition, much feeling in this song. I like it very much, but I have to critizise the drums. The kick does not work togehter with the bass and the Hi Hat is missing. Could be sound much better by improving the drum track.

Best regards

I realy can understand you in your mind of music here. Great done of a memory.
As a customer I`ve had two dogs of my own of work together. One of his had saved my life on work.
It`s more than hard to loos such a friend. It`s unable to tell someone else such a lot of feelings by own!

You remind me of my dear dog - I got him from the animal home. He was 8 month-old and critically ill. The love in my family helped him and he lived another 13 years with us! Now he is with God and expects us if we follow him.

Very nice song from you! For the rest, I join TommyG!
Thank you Richard! Karin

Hi my friend, First off I wanna say thanks for letting us know what program you have used, a lot of other guys don`t bother.
Losing a pet is a big thing I know and you have captured that sorrow very well within the overall mood of this track with some creative lead work. Nice crisp un clean sound also. But having said that, there are some timing issues here, is that important? That`s your call init. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Peace & Respect.  Ian

Real good melody! The guitar work is excellent, great harmonizing guitar leads. I think the snare drum distracts a little from the melody at times. But in all it's great!
