Regardless of the poll outcome I'm sure you'll find a way to feel superior to everyone anyway.

Time signature changes are gaudy and pretentious. Anyone who changes their signature, or uses asymmetrical signatures are obviously tryhard fags who think that it makes their music better. They've confused themselves into thinking that the fact that their song is in 13/8 time prevents it from being utter shit because the theoryfags are jizzing their pants over a 13/8 song.

Despite that, anyone who uses 4/4 time is a songwriting noob and is either too fucking untalented at writing music, or friggen lazy with his musical progression that he can't play outside of the box, or for shit.

Ian, you think anything that isn't 4/4 and the same note all the way through is pretentious.
#11
You seriously need to stop using the word pretentious all the time, it doesn't get any more pretentious than that.

I don't like the direction this thread is bound to take...

Anyway, time signature changes are cool if used well.

EDIT: Didn't vote in the poll because all of the poll options are shit.

Personally, I am a little bit of a theory nerd (not a huge one, as I am also a mostly self taught theory nerd) and find signature changes to be the bee's knees.

That said, pull them off well please.

*puts on monocle*

This must be one of those "odd time signatures" I've heard so much about.

*Listens to Xiaoxi's new piece that uses Ian/die of AIDS*

BRILLIANT!

I know this sounds crazy but this is really similar to what goes through my mind when I write/record anything anymore.

Yes, even with the contradictions between paragraphs.


Reason I made this thread was because I wrote a riff for my guitarist's song (essentially an extension of an earlier riff) that naturally fell into 11/8, and the song alters between 6/8 and 4/4 frequently. Not forced, either.

Wanted to know opinions before I consider doing anything more with it. Or, any other of my songs with varying time sigs.

If you like it and think it sounds good I don't know why my opinion on time signature changes matters.

Ian, 4 words:

Stop being a fuckwit!


Seriously, why do you need us to say "we think time signature changes are good, if done well" before you decide to use time signature changes?

Rather than just close this thread, or moan about how terrible it/Ian is, I'm just gonna quote everything I said from the 'Roasting Ian' thread so I can feel superior and laugh at my own (terrible) jokes whenever this thread ends up in my User Control Panel...

Quote by DisarmGoliath
If my dog had a face like Ian's, I'd shave its butt and make it walk backwards... which is ironic, as then Ian really could go and fuck himself, by partaking in one of his favourite animal pastimes.

Quote by DisarmGoliath
I believe the last time he saw that dog, it left shivering like a white mouse in a tampon factory... probably another of his fetishes.

Judging by the stuff he posts, if Ian was anymore inbred he'd be a fucking sandwich.

Quote by DisarmGoliath
Ian called up the RSPCA Advice Line the other day, but apparently it's only for the victims of animal cruelty.

Quote by DisarmGoliath
Ian went to see the doctor the other day, to get some jabs (tetanus, rabies, etc.). The doctor approved of his caution, but soon changed his mind when he asked where Ian was going nice on holiday, and got the reply "Oh, I'm just going out on the pull tonight."


...and finally
Quote by DisarmGoliath
What's the difference between Ian's refrigerator and Ian's pet dog?

The fridge doesn't fart when he takes the meat out.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I play what comes naturally. If something naturally comes out as 7/8 or 9/8 or 5/4 or whatever then I run with it. I'm not going to write a riff in an unusual time signature just for the sake of writing something in an odd time signature.
