Liner Notes: 

This was supposed to be for the "slow" skirmish by @metalfoot
But I honestly forgot it was even doing a skirmish and took like...a couple hours.
Oh well.
I searched my stock of vocal samples for "slow" and also on Splice. Found these ones and I really liked the message they all communicate when used together. I twisted them, pitched them, effected them, and put them on top of a simple drum pattern. The first thing was actually the piano, though...which was gonna be for a totally different song, but I kept it here.

Lyrics: 

(take it a little bit slower)
(go slow, go slow)
Quicker than you got it,
quicker than you got it
it will all be gone
Quicker than you got it, yeah
quicker than you got it
it will all be gone, yeah.

quicker than you got it

Quicker than you got it,
quicker than you got it
it will all be gone
Quicker than you got it, yeah
quicker than you got it
it will all be gone, yeah.

Love comes slow but it goes fast

*vamp like forever
(slow down)



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I just finished my "slow" skirmish, too - because a storm knocked out our power.
What a great groove - super smooth and hypnotic. You get a gospel-like vibe going here. Lots of cool sounds to enjoy - sounds awesome in headphones.

Well, there are no skirmish police so if the prompt means you got a song, then it worked! Nice assembling of the parts into a cohesive whole. And if it takes being 'slow' to do the slow prompt so be it. Enjoyed this a lot!

This was nicely done!

Skirmishes take some practice. Once you really settle in to the skirmish mindset, you'll have three hours available, make two songs, and still feel lazy because you did nothing for more than an hour in there. Wink

well you did slow down but not in quality. a songs a song and this is a really good song.

I love the slow groove and those samples work wonderfully here. I, too, like the message from the combination. Your two skirmish songs today are killer. Absolutely slaying it.

The main thing is that is's a very good song. Love the beat, the cool atmosphere, brilliant playing, gorgeous vocals. It all works beautifully.

Nice relaxing song. The sort of thing I'd listen to while just lying down on the couch for a while. Good work! Smile
