I Wrote Another Theme Song

The first was for Pavy and Schrody (yes I'm still trying to get Joe to make more with me), and this one is for Slacker Joe (no relation). So far, I only have one of the two versions up, and I'll try to upload the other one tomorrow. Let me know what you think so far!

Just to clarify, this is going to hopefully be the theme song for an animation series, that will hopefully come to be. If you have any feedback, please feel free to share.

Seems slow for a theme song, but I enjoyed listening! (It really depends on the context of the show/animation series)

That's too bad.

ETA: Oh yeah, and it's not my site, nor my idea. I only wrote the music.

The animation is meant to be very simple sketches, in the truly slacker way. I'll record one that's a little faster and upload it tomorrow! Thanks for your input!

Oh gawd! I was just recovering from the Pavy and Shrody. Sounds great and you have a beautiful voice. Maybe experiment with a different strum? Instead of a top string, down stroke try a down up down up-down up down up?

Or mix the 2 strums? Start with down up down up-down up down up and the verse where you sing, "Slacker Joe, he won't go" use your original strum?

Thank you, muchos! I'll try a little strumming variation on the chorus.

Anywho...

I uploaded 4 different version of the theme song. The one on the website is the original one, and the second one is similar, but fingerpicked instead of strummed. The third and fourth are a bit faster, and the fourth has harmonizing vocals.

Let me know if you have any thoughts and which one you like the best. Much appreciated!

ETA: DOH! Here's the link:

Thanks Ernest! I got some good advice from a few people about how I can make it better, sound more professional, etc. I'm going to record a few more takes and see if I can't clean it up a bit. Thanks for your input, everyone!
