Description: #jamwithjhs JHS Pedals Wav-Dr. BonnieLegion

While everyone is staying at home these days, online collaborations for music are kicking up. This is a playground for wav.Dr. and I as we are fully submerged in fusion music and collaborative sound arts. This week we came across a video from JHS Pedals

They are inviting people to join them in helping finish their song. Basically all things were on the table. Lay down any instruments or vocals you want to on top of there track and then post it on Instagram or Facebook for everyone to hear! Make sure to tag @jhspedals and hashtag #jamwithjhs on your video and they will select their top 5 favorite jams to be featured on there JHS Show on April 3rd. This is their way of bringing people together while many of us are stuck inside.
Both wav-Dr. and I loved the idea and wanted to swoop in and do a full song, cover and video for the track.

Hi everyone I’m the wav-Dr. and I’m gonna explain what I did for creating Reality & Fantasy for the JHS Pedals songwriting challenge. When I heard the stems I thought there was already a verse, chorus and bridge writen so I edited the song how I heard it form wise. I thought the drums were great but added 2 maracas each panned hard left and right to give it an off beat pulse as well and create a side to side listening experience. I cut the down beat off the drums and placed a sampled Kick on the down beat to create a contrasting tone. I wrote an off beat guitar part that worked with the two guitars provided and then sent the song idea to Bonnie. She sent back her amazing vocal and then I Mixed and Mastered it. I’m in BC Canada and Bonnie’s in California we did this all online via dropbox folders each from our studios. We hope you like it. Thanks for creating awesome Pedals and for this fun song writing challenge team JHS Pedals. Stay safe, healthy and inspired friends.

Lyrics by Shavon Bonnie Legion

I want to fly in the cold with the planets rings
I want to sit outside with saturn under dreamy wings
inside my mind there's a rose colored fantasy
why cant we all just get along and build this legacy

there's something coming and it's pounding me reality
sometimes life it aint so easy babe, it bothers me
what is perfect, where is heaven,
if we all could see
we're living life between reality and fantasy

oh oh and im getting close babe
oh and its coming close babe

He wants to try for the gold all the shiny things
he wants respect for all his peers to be a fire king
inside his mind there's a power in the fantasy
why cant you all just move along and see what I can see

but somethings coming and its pounding his reality
sometimes this life it aint so easy babe it bothers me
oh what is money what is power if we're all not free
we're living life between reality and fantasy

there's something coming and it's pounding me reality
sometimes life it aint so easy babe, it bothers me
what is perfect, where is heaven,
if we all could see
we're living life between reality and fantasy
