Walking the lone street…

Standard

Lonely Street
[source: http://www.personal.psu.edu/%5D

[Slow mellow acoustic riff giving a very ominous brooding] – 4 beats
[Drums start with just the base drum going DUDH DUDH DUDH DUDH per second] – 4 beats
[The guitars get into the distortion mode]
[The second guitar – lead comes from a low volume end of scale notes]

I am walking down the lane
Walking down the street
Ambling through the alleys
Away from the bustling beat

And I pass this old man
With his tattered torn blanket
Clothes once plush and rich
Now, rags and buttons rusted….

[Snare hits ta-ta-ta-ta, and cotinue with the normal 4beat rhythm]
[Ominous Chords – have to check with potti]
[Chorus]

I walk downcast
Down this empty street
Through the black crowded roads
I still walk alone

I walk downcast
Down this empty street
I walk through these crowded roads
And still I am all alone….

[Back to DUDH DUDH on the drums + riff on rhythm + end of scale on lead]

As I near the old man
I heard him call my name
Startled I turn,
And face his gaze through the mane

[hold the lead….. and a vibrato]
Gaze through the mane

Fear filled my eyes
His mane shining through the glow
As he parted his hair,
Gazed me back like the mirror I know…

[Snare hits ta-ta-ta-ta, and cotinue with the normal 4beat rhythm]
[Ominous Chords – have to check with potti]
[Chorus]

I walk downcast
Down this empty street
Through the black crowded roads
I still walk alone

I walk downcast
Down this empty street
I walk through these crowded roads
And still I am all alone….

[4 beats pause]
[Power chords strum for 1 beat]
[All die out but for the rhythm and the drums following the rhythm is a slow time roll]

I run out and scream
Getting louder with passing stay
The beat tells me that soon
It’s gonna be my dying day…

[Just snare and base, with the lead going beserk over the ominous feeling givers]

Be my dying day – my dying day
My dying day – my dying day
Be my dying day – my dying day
My dying day  -my dying day….

[A screaaammmm]
[Everything comes in]

I run out and scream
Getting louder with passing stay
The beat tells me that soon
It’s gonna be my dying day
Fate’s a crazy player
Never knowing what’ll come
I run with my eyes open
Watching out for death’s own pun…

[Break into the lead after a reverse slide] – 4 beats

Death’s own pun…..

[end with the lead holding the highest note reached after playing for about 20 beats]

  1. Yea whilst I was penning them down, I was thinking of the same as well :-D!! But, the music is totally different what’s going on in the mind ;-)!!

    Music is more along the lines of Megadeth style, so will turn out to be a whole different thing.

    And the vdo running in my mind is drastically different. The Greenday vdo had this blurring and painting effects going on, within the sets. Awesome, but mine’s this dark street and this guy wearing a suit and a loosened tie walking along ;-)!
