New Video/ Song shot with a Canon 650D. Feedback needed plea

Postby Muso1070 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 3:23 pm

Hello all, i'm a singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland and just wanted to share with you a new tune i put together a few weeks ago called Tonight.
I was lucky enough to be invited over to perform in Nashville USA at the famous Bluebird Cafe back in June and it was that trip that inspired me to write this song.
Its a pretty chilled out tune with a summery feel to it.
Check it out below if you have a spare moment for new music.
All feedback welcome :)

I may have clicked this because you said you're from Northern Ireland, and I'm from there (I live in London now) so I got curious. :ying:

This was a really nice song, it gave me the warm fuzzy feeling, awesome job! I hope that you go much further with your music in the future! :3

Maybe you could make it along?

Love the groove you have going on. Nice and upbeat without being frantic. Guitars may be mixed a little hot compared to the vocals, however. You've got a great voice, so take care you don't let the guitars overpower it. I'd pan the electric more toward the middle, but that's just a nitpicking personal preference. On the video side, the aspect ratio seems stretched horizontally, but the actual picture quality and filming are very good.

Overall, I'd give it a thumbs-up and hope to hear more soon! :up: :)

I was kinda thinking the song is to long?
And maybe the lighting is to much making unwanted shadows?
Also is it just me or does the video look a little squeezed or something?
These are only small issues of course.

It does look a bit squeezed, but that's probably just some weird encode setting when you export the final version. Stretching vertically by about 135% will correct the aspect ratio at a slight loss of quality (depending on the source).

As for the length, lighting, etc, I would chalk those up to personal stylistic choices.

What are you editing the video with, btw?

Hi all, for anyone who enjoyed the song here are the lyrics :)

Tonight by Chris Keys

V.1 When will you see
what you mean to me
listen to your heart
and walk on out, from the dark.
HHHHHHHMMMMM -----------
what must i do
to make it clear to you
love is all we need
so please oh please, wait for me.

C.1 And the day will turn into the night
with you by my side to hold
and the moon beams down
over our little town
it feels so right, tonight ----------
Oh -- Oh ---------- Oh -- Oh ------------ Oh -- Oh

V.2 How can i try
to keep you on my side
believe in all you dream
and meet me somewhere in between.
HHHHHHHMMMMM -----------
One of these days
we might find our way
two lost and lonely minds
oh please oh please, oh be mine.

C.2 Repeat C.1 with 4th line:
It shines so bright, tonight -----------
Oh -- Oh ---------- Oh -- Oh ------------ Oh -- Oh
2x Oh -- Oh ---------- Oh -- Oh ------------ Oh -- Oh
