    I came across a song I started working on last year. My intention was to write lyrics and add a vocal part, but I never got around to it.

    I was listening to it today, and now I'm wondering if the song is actually finished as it is. It's not fully mixed.....

    It doesn't have a title. I was playing around in lydian and the verse is in 7/4, so I saved it under the file name of "Sharp 4, meters #2". Whatever.....

    If you don't mind, please give it a listen and vote:

    Sounds great. I'm liking the idea of throwing some lyrics at it, just to see what happens.

    Crying out for vocals!!!, that way you can bring down the guitar for the verses, build up on the hook, and make the riffs & solo really pop out during their parts. The overall sound has a urgent feel to it, the lyrics should reflect that too. Good luck with this.

    Nice, really nice. The melody is screaming the title and lyrics to me. Title?? " Should have been me or should have been gone".

    That’s got a nice Rush-esque feel to it... write something in Neil’s honor!

    I kept picturing outdoor scenes: people enjoying a BBQ, dog catching a frisbee, beach party,... The things we are waiting for post pandemic... the sound is so positive vibes so I’ll vote for some lyrics.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Yep, add vocals. Plenty catchy enough musically. Nice vocals could make it a hit.
