Cordial Melody
I had an old song that I've kicked around for years that I finally made the time to track.
It's called cordial melody. It's not ad hard as some of my other work but has its own feel.
Have a listen if you have the time to stop by.

It was relaxing to listen to. I like the part that started about 1:15.

Thank you for stopping by father time. I appreciate you taking the time to listen. I might be trying to add some vocals but I have a hard time with lyrics so we will see if that ever happens. Now I have to listen to the track at 1:15 to see exactly what that is I have an idea that is the chorus.

By the way in not here posting for fan boys so if anyone have a comment for improvement that is fine to and yes I understand this is not the review channel I am not asking for a review but I do listen to and take helpful critique in mind.

As my page says I am listening to you and I have found over the years that I have been in IAC before it was indie music people that people here have a good ear and good feedback.

Anyway I appreciate the listen, I know its hard to find the time. So when someone does its special.
Cheers -)

Hello, this is Lesley Picard of BEATLESEX.

Yes Commander John Riker you can take a fiver, I'll say a word.

Well we went, see, and had a go at listening to this bit... Cordial Melody
you call it?

Sounds like you still need the cordial melody part.
Nice chords, almost clearly sketched with the instruments,
but really what it sounds like most is an idea you've jotted down,
probably rather loosely, but we do what we can, I realize.

Alright, so I'm just going to be so bold as to bloody ask, because
that's the kind of crazy girl I am.

Do you want help finishing this piece? Because I myself consider
this an unfinished piece. You may absolutely tell me,
"Lesley you are up a bat's ass playing poker with monkeys"
and I will then ask you, have you yourself ever been stuffed up
a bat's ass, because it's really not as roomy as it sounds....

Anyway, the boys and I were imagining how it goes, you know,
the cordial melody part which seems yet to exist.

I suppose that's terribly rude, 'nice unfinished song, want us to finish it for ya?'

I suppose that must be rude, though I did not mean it that way at all.

It would be a bunch of work wouldn't it.

And honestly, the thing lost me two minutes into it....

So I could not even listen to it anymore.

Well 'cause it's so sloppily recorded, Mate.
I mean, I do this shit way often more often than not drunk as bloody shite
to where other blokes or lasses or whatevers couldn't even stand,
and I manage, and we manage, actually pretty succinct and rockin' recordings,

and you say you want feedback,
and the kindest thing I can say, is I hear or think I hear,
we think we hear sort of where you're pointed towards with all this.

But unless some really incredible shit happens AFTER two minutes
into it, we tend towards calling this cordial melody thing an unfinished work.

And mind you, if you're stumped,

we're the big brash assholes on the block who actually
had the nerve to ask if you want it finished.
I realize, I'm one of these boys now...

Even being the only girl in the group.

You sort of can't not be you, once you're this, eh John?

"Now you get it you fucking cunt."

That's just rude, John.

"Okay, it is. Sorry Captain Cunt."


Can't win with his sort, can I.

Please let me know, since I, Lesley Jane, Actual Leader of the Group BEATLESEX
did ask, was the one who did ask,

if you'd like us to basically take whatever you've got here,

and of course that would mean I have to listen to all nine minutes of it,
so I'm already wondering if I should even post this,

but you so humbly ask for listeners, I had to listen,
and since you said whatever about say what you think about it...

and what we thought was, 'sounds good' 'we hear where's he's going',
and 'he never does quite get there though'...

which again, correct me if I'm wrong, Dos Silos,
but does it actually involve a melody coming into the song
after two minutes in?

Or is it nine minutes of sketch of a chord structure loosely nailed?
In entire need of at the very onset a melody, and then we have to
think about how we're putting it together, but we're very good at that.

You want us to make a fucking BEATLESEX record out of it?
We'd split the writer's credit with you. You know, you came up
with whatever all that is... by now she's out of things to say,
and it's again Commander John doing the bloody talking.

But look, she summed it up, I don't need to add much.
It's a thing, we can hear that. It's a very undefined thing,
and we think we hear, what it is you felt 'out there' but didn't
manage to call into the corral at sundown.

It's an experiment, we could call it that.

And we couldn't do it bloody overnight.
Generally speaking, we do make records like that, and often drunk
as sods too, but we're so accurate that even fuckin' bloody soaked,
we pull it out, we throw it down, there it is, wearing a crown.

We don't know how we do it at this point.
We'll all wake up the next day, no one will remember how it even goes.
Then we'll listen to it. "Shite, this is GOOD, do you remember making this?"

Okay, so now it's John speaking, 'cause Lesley sort of felt insignificant
and that's on you Lesley, don't just think because I'm here that you
don't matter.

"who do I matter to John? You? You got your wife, you're welcome."

She means Mistress Of Sound, Vanessa.
The "Female John Lennon" as Pete Shotton called her.
Yeah, we eloped. And we don't talk about it much. Check, and check.


we're a complicated bunch, I get it. You can tell us to fuck off,
or just be cordial like you say, and go 'no thank you'....

Nice bunch of sketch, but Lesley's very fine tuned at this point,
there's shite of mine and shite of George's she won't sit still
to listen to. You got over two minutes out of her otherwise busy mind
to sit still and listen to an idea sketch, basically.

I don't know. We're not saying more till we hear what you
have to say about it. ~John

Bloody hell. We talk too much. And I talk too much.

Sorry if I sounded insulting, I actually meant it to be a compliment,
but then I start talking about what's needed and all that.

I know we basically mean well. Sounded underdeveloped,
don't know what happens after two minutes... it's hard to sit still that long for me...

I actually listened to that before giving our newest release the 'verify' listen.
I put that off, to hear your thing, that's the truth, now I'm gonna go hear
our new one, "Wear Pants".

If I or John insulted you at all, we apologize humbly, we certainly didn't mean to.
If you actually are intrigued by the idea of this becoming a work
which brings BEATLESEX to the table to 'do us' with it,
and make it into the thing we sense it could be, well talk to us about that, then.

Thank you so much for stopping by to listen. I appreciate your ideas and opinions. At this point I'm not asking for or looking for a collaboration. I would humbly request you don't make a BEATLESEX version of it but I do thank you for making the offer.

With that out of the way I will agree that the recording was hasty and it is a demo. The cordial melody that you say does not exist is actually the guitar that continually plays the melody through the entire song except the chorus.

I will agree that it does kind of wander a bit in a seemingly meandering fashion and that was kind of the intent. I think you would get the point better if I ever did get around to doing lyrics.

If you did not make it past two minutes that is fine it is repetitive and that might get on some nerves but that was also intended as it does progress through the guitar part through the song.

I know its not everyone's cup of tea and I don't expect it to be. It is what it is and I never considered it an unfinished work (aside from the sloppy hasty recording) which I do agree could use work.

I thank you for taking the time to listen and I enjoyed your comments.
Kind regards

Hey, I'm Lesley, Leader, Mother, and Jesus of the band....

I again apologize for even letting out of the bag that I couldn't sit past
a couple minutes of this, it sounded nice...
just so sloppily performed I would have beat myself physically had I done it.
Even if I'd been drunk. I can record drunk, that's no excuse,
if I waited for sobriety I'd make less records, definitely.

And actually not to worry, there is no way that my band would simply
go and make a version of your song. It's a lot of work, something like that.
More so than if we just write our own. Because we'd have to learn yours.

I was actually hoping to Dear God (My Daddy) that we would not have to.
You actually prefer we do not, heck, that's even better.

Lastly, let me say this, I put myself through more hell than anybody
wants to know about, to become me in all my impossible complexity...

so everything is 'just so' to me, or I can't even hear it... basically.
But that's me.

Everyone has their own groove, and frequency, and preferences....

May I say, in the way of encouragement towards a higher standard
of professionalism,

if you agree that something 'needs work',

might consider, um, actually doing that work before it's released.
Because it isn't very likely you'll do it afterwards, now is it?

I wish you much love and eloquent musical expression.

Good & Productive Day Ken.

God Bless, Much Love, ~Lesley

American Lesley Jane,
Thank you for your comments and I am listening. In regards to doing the work first what I tend to do which might not be the best approach is get the basic arrangement and track it then I refine it and hone it rework it. I am not in the least bit ashamed of my demo because that is what it is a demo not a "polished" version by any means. I thank you for your bluntness and honesty its refreshing and I did ask for it and I am thinking about what you and some others have said. Maybe I am too close to it and I need to take in back of the barn and beat it for a while (the song that is) and whip it in to shape.

Shoe city, Thanks for the listen and your comments, I find it interesting in this song you liked the bass line which I really did on the fly last minute. I thought you might like the guitar melody since it was similar to dream away. Like I told American Lesley Jane maybe I need to step back from it and hear it more objectively.

Like I said before I know this is not review forum and I am not trying to take away from that area which I think is great but I really appreciate the feed back and that you all took the time not only to listen but to post your comments. It means a lot that you took the time.

No, indeed it is not a review forum, I'm even afraid to go there...

they must really beat the shit out of you in there, I won't walk in by mistake even.

And really, Ken, I'm sorry, it's not only bluntness that comes with me,
it's impossibility.... I'm a scientist at this whole thing by now...
It's difficult for people who are not me, sometimes to hear what I say.
I'm sorry I'm a pain in the ass in other words.

The most helpful thing I think I've managed to impart,
and now I'll try to reiterate it; is, don't so lose patience with what you
are doing that you hurry it out the door---I do that myself sometimes,
it's better that we take an extra breath, and go the extra mile,

whatever, I feel like a bit of an idiot, but I generally do for one reason
or another...

I know some people put demos out. Some actually list them as 'Demos'
even in the title... I'll almost never do that anymore.

I go for it being the definitive record of whatever it is, 'cause I don't
wanna have to do it again. But again, I'm micro-aware of just,
more stuff than anybody normally thinks of, musically speaking. So, sorry. ~L

Well that is interesting, Ken - because, if I remember you said in Dream Away, that the rhythm guitar was a spontaneous thing too. And this bass line I thought was really different and good. So maybe you should take the easy path of going with the first thing you play haha - lucky! I just fell in love with the chord progression on Dream Away, so even though this guitar was the same style wise, it didn't strike me as being the same - if that makes any sense.

Thanks again Shoe city some interesting thoughts to consider. Maybe your onto something with catching that spur of the moment feeling. For what its worth I also enjoyed the bass line and was happy how that turned out.

American Lesley Jane,
I was not offended by your comments at all I enjoyed them you offer an interesting perspective. Thank you for your thoughts and comments I appreciate it.
