Get fit, lads.

The objective of this thread is to vote on the song you like the most, but remember: don't base your vote on the quality of the recording, base it on the content.



Here they are:

1 - "It's a Mistake" (sickman411, semiquaver)


2 - "Empty House" (SirZep)


3 - "Crying" (BjarnedeGraaf)


4 - "At Least It's Free" (ultimate-slash)


5 - "Bullshit Filler (The Gritty Reboot)" (whywefight)


6 - "Plot Song" (FoOltz)


7 - "I Can't Hear You" (chev311e)


8 - "Unleashed" (nico_9550)


9 - "Funk Out" (mind_meld)




------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is last week's most voted song, from mind_meld, the song "Jerome", with 4 votes!
------------------------------------------------------------------


If you too want to become a better songwriter/gigolo consider joining our group (http://groups.ultimate-guitar.com/mozartfactory/), all the info you need to join this weekly "contest" is there.

The votes will be counted this Thursday. The winner of this week's voting will be a mod in our group.


------------------
I'm sorry.

Also, tfw you watch a rerun of Jeux Sans Frontičres and you spend ages trying to figure who "Y" is.
That would be cool.

Also, pretty sure "Y" was Yugoslavia. (You probably figured it out by now )


And now your return gave me motivation to write some more songs

Yeah I know it's Yugoslavia but I caught it on TV once (RTP Memória ftw) and I was really puzzled for the longest time.

I honestly don't know what to comment on. I think this is my favourite week so far.

1. Well, this is awesome. Love the general vibe.
2. Well, this is awesome. Love the vocals (and the image as well).
3. Well, this is awesome. Love all the music bits and stuff.
4. This is actually the closest I've ever come to writing a love song that wasn't from the perspective of a stalker or murderer or something*
5. Well, this is awesome. Love all the stuff you're doing during the song and whatnot.
6. Well, this is awesome. Love all the like melodies and the other parts as well.
7. Well, this is awesome. Are you singing through your pick-ups? I love that.
8. Well, this is awesome. Love all seven strings of it.
9. Well, this is awesome. Funkin' love it.

*Disclaimer: I have never stalked and/or murdered someone.

Somehow I get the feeling that the songs that would make good instrumentals have lyrics and the ones that need lyrics are instrumentals.
But maybe that's just my weird taste.

Not this next week's song but the week after that will feature me singing through the pickups of my guitar.

Yeah, that's right, I work that far ahead.

Also I like your review format, but it could be improved.

1: This is the greatest double time bass outro of all time
2: This is the greatest sirzep moody jam of all time
3: This is the greatest blues jam of all time
4: This is the greatest vaguely 'I Am Jack's Plagiarized Song'-resembling song of all time
5: This is the greatest second bullshit filler of all time
6: This is the greatest keyboard solo of all time
7: This is the greatest digital clipping of all time
8: This is the greatest extended range pitch solo of all time
9: This is the greatest funk jam of all time

Alternate for 4: This is the greatest ultimate-slash high note of all time

I plagiarized a plagiarized version of a plagiarized song
It felt kinda good to really let loose for that high note, but at the same time I'm like 99% sure everyone in my apartment building heard it as well.

Just out of curiosity, which songs do you think would make better instrumentals?

1 - Nice and eerie in parts. The unexpected change at 2.23 was well done. Just one thing, were there a couple of 'off' guitar notes? Bass at 2.32? Maybe my mind is just playing tricks on me.

2 - Very well crafted. Particularly enjoyed the way the lyrics and vocals complemented the story. Eg. 'linger on' was a drawn out note; the vocals with lyrics about 'heartless machine' and 'walking while motionless' were more rhythmic and monotone. Me really like

3 - Aw I do love blues. I wasn't crying but my feet were a-tappin'. Digging that bass line. There was enough going on that it didn't need the vocals too badly to fill it out.

4 - Dat high note I liked the groove of this track. The refrain also worked well. What more can I say? Free is good.

5 - At first I thought it would be reverb overkill but there was enough variance to keep me happy. Especially from 3 minutes onwards

6 - Na I liked the music. Also the vox on 'we are life'. Nice lyrics, not too obvious but not too cryptic as to be unable to extract any meaning from them.

7 - I had trouble hearing this track, sorry there must be something wrong with my computer? No, I am sorry for that terrible attempt at a joke. Cool guitar work, and the indistinct vocals made me think of - underwater. It's weird but I imagined you swimming in a giant fish tank to get that sound

8 - woo yeah. Maybe some lead in the first half would have been good, and some heavier drums - but who cares when you have a 7 string at your disposal.

9 - I had fun Not a bad way to spend an evening.

Unfortunately not all girls feel that way.

"Listen, I can't promise that much good will happen, and in no way can I guarantee that you will not end up very disappointed, but at least I'm not charging you anything for it."
Now if that doesn't work, then how the hell am I supposed to ask someone out?

I know, but blues is usually about sad things and I couldn't think of a good title


Edit: Voted for da funk Slash and SirZep were a close 2nd
