OP UPDATED JAN 21. SIGNUPS CLOSE JANUARY 14th. SUBMISSIONS DUE... SOMETIME IN FUBUAR-Y FEB 18th

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEB 24TH. GET THOSE SUBS IN!



Hey guys. So, this is an idea we kicked around a bit during the planning for the Acoustic Covers II album. Basically ya'll's music and compile it together into a little showcase.

Okay, rules are as follows:
  • Original songs only
  • Try to stay under the 10 minute mark. Lotta people already after one day.
  • Have fun with it. If you're not having fun, I dunno. Track some kazoo or something.
  • Duedate TBD. Plan for something late January/early February. (How does February 17th sound?)


As a general rule, if you can't play it or find someone to play it, don't add it in. If you can't play flute, don't que up your best flute model. MAke a friend, go on a quest, or drop the flute altogether.

With this in mind, know that I'm willing to budge a bit when it comes to modelled pianos. I know not everyone has access to an acoustic one or a reliable way to record one in a quiet studio. Everything else, however, should be recorded acoustically.

So who's in?


The List So Far (An <s> means I've got it safe and sound, an <n> means I haven't gotten a sub from you yet [If it's here, point me in the right direction. I took a look before class today, I might've missed it], anything else please message me!):

I'm game, it'll keep me from procrastinating from my folk album I've been trying to write.

When's the deadline?

Does it have to be new material just for this album?

And if so can a rerecording of something else original count?

Actually this. I have songs to contribute already, but I can write a new tune too. It doesn't matter.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.


Click me, or I'll die.

If you wanna write a brand new tune for it, that's cool. An acoustic version of a full-on original is kickin' too, if you wanna do that. The idea is just to break out of the acoustic covers mould for a bit, get some community originals out there. I know there are tons of great storytellers and songwriters in the forums, and it'd be nice to get everyone on an album together.

I have a solid cohesive album full of material that I think is good, but I'm not very good at recording/mixing/whatever the **** I'd have to do to make it sound nice and listenable. Would be willing to give it a go if you boys need more volunteers.

Oh yeah. Worst case scenario, record and give someone stems or, if they use the same DAW, the project file.

Sign me up. Give me incentive to actually finish one of the half dozen things I've started writing/write something new.

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

I'm definitely on board if the due date is sometime after the new year. I should have something to record with by then.

This would be a interesting project methinks, not shure if I'll join: never actually written anything just acoustic before.

I'm down. I've got lots and lots of little acoustic passages and a yearn to eventually make an all-acoustic album, so I'd love to come up with something for this. Stickied!

Can I do a piano-based song?



Absolutely. Piano is the only thing I'm willing to bend on when it comes to modeling because they're..

1) Difficult to record properly

2) Difficult to record properly in a quiet room

3) Not available acoustically to everyone in a place they can record.

Sign me up. I'm always writing on my acoustic and piano, so I'll actually turn something in for this, unlike with the post rock album.

How high quality does it need to be? Because I can do some contributing fairly quickly if I dial down my FTL time if it doesn't need to be high quality. But if it needs to be a good quality recording, then I'll be a little longer, as the only mic I have at my dorm is my computer's mic, and the AC unit for my room is always loud.

In all honesty, take the time to get a better quality recording if you can. There's quite a bit of time between now and the deadline target. Take the time now to get a nice concept and get it down pat.

OP Updated, I'm looking at February 17th as a deadline. Any input on that date? Anyone got songs in the works, ideas, lyrics, artwork, etc.?

That date is good for me.
I have a song idea that I'll be recording fairly soon.

I usually do all of these - count me in.



Okay, I'll add you both to the list in OP after I'm done with class.

Since the list is close to the 20's, I wanna ask now. Should subs be capped, or should we have multiple volumes for the album? I have an opinion, but I'd like to hear from everyone about it.

Are we talking instrumental or vocal tracks? I guess I'm in either way, although it's been an age since I wrote an instrumental acoustic song.

It could be either, I'd like to see a mix of both. You can do wonders with acoustic instruments and no vocals. Solo acoustic guitar is welcome as well, steel or nylon.

I'd say one single per person.


Let's go for the Greatest Hits idea. If somebody has more than one they can poll it/decide themselves/people in this thread.


Just my opinion.
