Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Production notes: The lyrics, guitars, and vocals were fast and easy. Everything else was extremely annoying and it took a long time.

Update: 9/14/2019 This demo has been updated to version 2
Update: 9/15/2019 This demo has been updated to version 3. I wanted the pause on "hope you guessed my name" and fixed "Shredding tears".. Also, vocals too loud on version 2. This should be the final version. Thanks.

Lyrics: 

Hope You Guessed My Name

The vampire bit into her beautiful neck
It started out with just a little peck
But it clamped down hard and sucked really fast
Drained all of her blood and goodbye beautiful lass
It has to eat and she was there
Put her in a trance with just the stare
Come with me sweet child
It took her by the hand and she walked with a smile

Chorus
I've been around for 200 years
I'm no longer capable of shedding tears
In 200 more years I'll still be the same
I am the vampire hope you guess my name

They are not victims to me
Obviously a vampire needs to feed
I don't do rats that's in the movies
I feed on sweet young female beauties
And when this town is empty and out
I'll moved through the night away from the drought
I like the big cities plenty to feed
Come with me sweet child no need to bleed

Bridge
I'm going to give you a choice I never had
Spend 200 years with me and never be sad
They used to just call me the count
I take every drop and every ounce
I'm old enough to be your great great great great! Grandfather

Hey Jerry, my friend you did an excellent job on your new song I like it bro. "Hope You Can Guess My Name" is a great hook/ chorus. Your lyrics are excellent and very visual. The chorus is catchy "I've been around 200 years, I'm no longer capable of shedding tears" is a great line. Your guitar solo sounds awesome.

The production feels wonderfully effortless and rocks effectively - so I am glad you got this done but sorry that parts felt annoying! Love the vampire theme -deliciously unique and campy. Chorus is great with nice contrast between that and verses and bridge. As always your guitars rock!

Compelling write, with beauties dying and a vampire that has got kind of style. That solo is very convincing from start to finish.

This is great! Anything with things like vampires are great and this flows so easy!

You really know how to make interesting, innovative and enjoyable music. The lyrics are a bit scary, I mean, there are some awful things happening here, but your storytelling style is so benevolent that I start to feel empathy for this vampire. I like the new softer drum sounds, that horror-synth, and the Hendrix- solo especially but it's all good. Smile

This is super joyful. You have a unique approach to the theme and I love it. You kept saying that you couldn't do this yet you did it in a way that I'd never imagine. So, I'm dancing to this dreadful tale.
