    Hi all,

    Wrote this song over the weekend and I would appreciate feedback.

    Also, I would like feedback on what genre this is - I can't figure that out myself!



    COLD HARD SOUL
    (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

    Was it a birth defect
    Or did you learn
    To make you blood run cold
    Must be proud of all dislikes that you earn
    From your stranglehold

    I could never do what you do
    And live with myself
    Shaping shiftin’, which one’s really you
    Don’t loose control
    Of that cold hard soul

    You can drop the act with me, I know
    You’re a soul whore
    Each climb leaves enemies below
    Careful what you ask for

    I could never do what you do
    And live with myself
    Shaping shiftin’, which one’s really you
    Don’t loose control
    Of that cold hard soul

    SOLO

    I could never do what you do
    And live with myself
    Shaping shiftin’, which one’s really you
    Don’t loose control
    Of that cold hard soul

    Cold hard soul (ad lib to end)

    It's late 80's early 90's influenced Metal/Rock/Grunge -- Heavy Heavy AIC influence, with dashes of STP, Creed, and the last vestiges of Hair Metal. You've got a little early Soundgarden in there too. Are you playing all the guitars and doing everything here? These are sounding really good.

    I'll just add this: Johnathan - your stuff has been getting better and better both from a production standpoint, but also from a songwriting and performance standpoint with every post. I think you are really really close here - and by close I mean close to prime-time. If I put my producer's cap on there are a few small things that I'd point to for criticism and change.... but I really think you are super super close to leveling up.... your learning curve has been really impressive and inspiring. Keep going.
