Do What You Came Here For

Lyrics and Notes written by Zac Frieband Absolutely

 

 

 

Guitar Intro

D

Am

G

Em

repeat

D x5

Am x5

G x5

Em x5

repeat

 

Whole rest

 

You've always been the girl, D

Who lives in the dark, Am

Refuses to come out, G

Of your cave. Em

 

But when the sun is shining, D

Right through your window, Am

Dare you step outside, G

And do. Em

 

Whole rest

 

What you came here for. Em x5

What you came here for. Em x5

You know you want to.... D

You know you can.... G

C C7

So what could be holding you back A

 

Half rest

 

No matter where you go, D

It's the same in every town, Am

Your dreams are shattered G

And thrown to the ground. Em

 

But you gotta get back up, D

And try again, Am

Could you be afraid, G

To do, Em

 

Whole Rest

 

What you came here for. Em x5

What you came here for. Em x5

You know you want to.... D

you know you can.... GY

C C7

So what could be holding you back A

 

Half Rest

 

(talking) You gotta forget the past and worry about the future, D

No matter what you have done, Am

Who you've seen, G

Your only meant to do one thing, and one thing only, Em

You gotta... Em

 

Half Rest

 

Do what you came here for, D x5

Do what you came here for, Am x5

Do what you came here for. G x5

 

Yeahhh

 

Guitar solo

Has a certain ring to it.

 

It is rock? I guess I'm kind of confused on the genre it would be played in.

 

No way, Laura is back?

What is goin' on

The tune is supposed to play to classical vibe chords.

The guitar solo is pretty mellow

Btw email me some time [email protected]

If you have the proper cords you should record this to your computer and upload it.

Do you know of a good program? Possibly free?

Nice. I occasionally write songs too. Keep up the good work, maybe you can record it and post it on [A Sharing Site]. (Won't say the name of it in case it is considered advertising.)

My guess is that he means youtube.

 

Edit: I'll try playing this when I get my guitar tuned up. Seems like it could be a nice tune.

 

But yeah, try posting a video.

Very nice song, though I think this should be posted in The Library. I'm not sure if that applies for songs, but it does for poems.

I'll ask my sister tommorow. She's into that whole thing.

 

I'm nearly positive there's a program out there, but what'll cost you a bit will be the cords to plug it into your computer. It won't be too much, but depending on your computer it could range from $10-40. It'd be well worth it, though.

I would, but I have two problems.

1. All I have is a crappy digital camera to record with. It would most likely sound terrible.

2. I'm not that great at guitar. I've only been playing for about six months. I could probably play it with a bit of practice, but you really don't want me to butcher your song.

 

Besides, since my guitar is brand new it's really out of tune. I mean REALLY out of tune. So is my old guitar. I will play it though.

Use Audacity, a microphone, and your computer to record it. The lyrics are alright, but I can't really tell how they would sound. There's no point in saying "Half rest" and "Whole rest" when there's no rhythms to go with it.

I'd like to hear it for real. The chord progression is pretty simple, but I can't really know much about the guitar part until I can hear the strum pattern.

I loved it, maybe use some power chords instead, they flow much better, and make the chords italicized. You will also get a lot more answers from people who love music, if you get this moved to the "entertainment" forum. I love the song though, flowed really well, and I liked how you added the guitar chords.

I'm going to completely disagree with this. Power chords belong to a certain style of music, and judging from the lyrics, that's not this. Open chords can flow just fine, as long as they are played correctly.
