Here's the game. Everything is going to be done in powertab. Someone start off with a simple rhythm and then someone else elaborates upon it. Keep on building on like that. I know that a create a solo game was done and I know that it failed sort of. Hopefully this will go a little bit better.

I'll be the judge of what stays and goes and I'll keep an updated version of the song in this post.

Good luck mates.

Edit: The song will be in the key of E minor. It doesn't matter what tuning you use as long as the part is in E. I'll allow key changes if they flow with the rest of the song. Use any instrument. Feel free to keep writing parts for it and if I approve I'll put it in this post. If there is something in this post then grab that version of the song and add and change as you see fit. Just don't remove or change large sections of someone else's work.

Update: Solo added to acoustics.
Update: Transition to distortion added.

Yea, I did... I thought it said "I'll start", not "Someone start".

And since you won't start it... I guess I will. 2 mins.

how do you use powertab, does it play the sounds for you????

Generalpwnt
10-16-2006, 11:14 PM
Yes. It plays the music. It's like evil pagan witchcraft put into a program used to make noises out of numbers. Quite fascinating actually.

There's also something called being nice. Check in sometime.

This idea is very similar to Grovermans' "Ultimate Powertab" idea.
But, everyone liked him. He wasn't an ass.

Looks like you're two steps behind.


If you get this organized
ie
Give some restrictions, as in the key of the song, the tuning of the instruments, what intruments can/should be used. I dunno. Just something for us to really build on.

If it becomes organized, I'll become interested.

If you want some restrictions then we'll make it easy and have it in the key of E minor with standard tuning. Use any instrument you want and keep it creative.

Sorry about the anti-niceness yesterday. It was an off day.

Do what you will. I just threw something together to get it started.

I do like the distortion part, though, and will probably try to use it later.

Dude, you didn't really add anything. You pretty much added his distorted part... In clean.

Generalpwnt
10-19-2006, 12:27 AM
I'm going to post this a little solo I added to Humanity's acoustic thing. I want to put it here before I put it into the actual song so I can hear people's opinions before I put it in.

If you like where I'm going with the solo I can make it longer, but I don't want to intrude too much on the project.

I've extended the solo a little and now it's in the first post of this thread. We need to get a mood swing into this song.

10-19-2006, 11:20 PM
Ok, i kinda messed up and didn't see the second solo section until i made my own, so i just added it behind the first one, and i don't think it sounds bad from my solo to the second solo. Do whatever, i like it myself.

Generalpwnt
10-19-2006, 11:23 PM
I like it. Now let's try to move out of the acoustics and into something a lil more heavy.

It doesn't flow with the rest of the song and I don't want to use the same progression over and over again. It makes the song boring.

and maybe 30 minutes to fully understand it

added a transition after the acoustic part to lead to the heavy stuff.

did my best, but if it's not good enough that's ok. Just see what you can do with it :)

i added a little guitar part (i added it to UG3, the one w/o my bassline)

Generalpwnt
10-25-2006, 10:33 PM
^^It's really nice but I don't think it transitions that smoothly between the acoustics to the distortion. Srry mate.

Yes it is everybody's song but I get to choose what gets in and what doesn't. I'll make exceptions if someone finds a piece exceptionally well done but in the beginning of the thread it was stated that I would be choosing what gets in and what doesn't. Part of the game's rules.

nexteyenate
10-25-2006, 10:48 PM
would it be better if i kept the acoustic in with that guitar part or put an acoustic guitar somewhere in the riff? anyway, its discouraging that my riff did not get approved but i am not shaken too much, for i will try and try again to make Mr. General happy! : P

Generalpwnt
10-25-2006, 10:55 PM
That's the spirit mate. It would be helpful if you somehow made a nice clean transition to some distorted guitar from the acoustic part.

nexteyenate
10-25-2006, 10:56 PM

10-25-2006, 11:23 PM

Are you fucking kidding me? That bassline was amazing. And since there's only one other person who's thinking about bass right now, I think it should be kept in there.

General, I dont like your idea of the whole Dictator thing. Omitting an ENTIRE section isn't acceptable. This is, as said, a group project. If you want co-operation, then you cant be the God over every little thing.


Personally, I liked the new stuff without that acoustic in there still.
It doesn't need to be a transition like that. It wasn't a tough or quick transition the way nexteyenate had it. It sounded just fine.

And keep the bass, dammit.

Just because there is only one person thinking about something doesn't mean it should be kept. I could be the only person in the world thinking about infanticide but that doesn't mean the idea should be kept. Bad example but you get what I mean. I said that the idea of a bass line was good but I didn't feel that it flowed well. I also said at the beginning of this thread that I would be the judge of what is kept. Though if enough people agree with you that the bass line should be kept then I'll let it stay, but seeing as you and probably the maker of the bass line are the only two who agree with it then we shall have to wait. I just think that there could be a better bass line.

HellBent1337

Ok, so i added a bassline, it was my first time editing with powertab, so it looks sloppy, but musics for listening to, not looking at ;) hope you enjoy..

Generalpwnt
10-26-2006, 01:28 AM
^^I love it.

Edit: I'll clean it up for you too.

Do you mind if I change the rhythm a little in the solo section for the bass? It's funky in a good way. But then again the song isn't meant to be funky in that part. It's the octaves.

HellBent1337
10-26-2006, 01:46 AM

Oh man, i just don't like most of that, it has its moments where its good but theres only so many different parts that can be added before it sounds like noise. To me most of that base line is just extra unneeded noise, no offense to anyone.

Generalpwnt
10-26-2006, 05:18 PM
That's what I was thinking but we're just trying out ideas right now. I'm thinking now that the bass line should be simple on acoustics and add a lil more zing on distorted. I don't know, that's my opinion.

It actually follows the guitar almost perfectly (theres one little octive move thats added on bass in 1 spot)...otherwise it just a simple basline to it

considering you don't know the difference between base and bass, and the fact you think that music is not noise...i take no offense from you :)

EDIT: The bassline repeats throughout nearly the whole thing... why would it turn to crap the 2nd time playing it?

10-26-2006, 08:14 PM
Come to think of it a singer is just unneeded noise. So are drums. So let's only have guitars.

Lol, sorry, i hardly check my posts and guess i accidently did base instead of bass, but get over it :p:
And as for the bass (hah) line sounding like crap the second time, what i ment was there were times when the bass did sound good with everything else going on, and there were times where the bass didn't sound good with everything else.
As for the noise issue, lets not go into that. I don't have the time to agrue it with you. :rolleyes:
