Domesticated

original song arrangement
& guitar playing

Hello Steemians! I decided to give you a track with some vocals, finally. A Nashville based songwriter, named Paul Gordon, has been working with the producer/drummer I've been working with (Pino Squillace), and he's very talented. He came to us one day with the lyrics and general melody for this song titled "Domesticated." I was tasked with creating the entire chord progression of the song, and also had a huge hand in the arrangement; along with Pino.

I loved this song from the beginning, as it talks about having your true self and creativity stifled by society, which is a strong theme in my life. The creation process was very interesting because it started as a Rock/Reggae song, and eventually morphed into a Latin feel. This was my first Latin recording, and I got to use guitar styles that I haven't had a chance to use since I learned them in college. So much fun!

We were all very happy and impressed with the outcome from the first day, which was a recording of the vocal, drums, and acoustic guitar. The other musicians then recorded over that, and I think they nailed it too. Please comment and let me know how you feel!


Enjoy "Domesticated"

Glad you liked it. Keep your eye out for Paul Gordon in the future! He is a great songwriter already, at 24 years old.

I hope this doesn't sound creepy...but I, and I think he also, would love to see a video post of you dancing to it! It would give you good content to post!

  • @samvanThank you, my dear friend. I would sing to myself with that voice that Paul Gordon has and you with your instrument that you sing like a spectacular angel. Dancing to your rhythm is a privilege. A big hug, my angel. Happy day to you.
