Hallo

There once was a bird that couldn't sing. He was young, sure, but the other birds his age could sing, so why couldn't he?
Once he learned how to fly, he left his comfortable nest and went as far as he could. He found a snail who told him that birds couldn't sing, but that wasn't true. All the little bird's friends could sing, his family could sing, every bird could sing, only he couldn't. He traveled far and met as many creatures as he could, and everyone always said that he could never sing.
One day, tired of being denied of his nature, he let himself drop from the skies. On his way down he remembered his family, and for the first time, he sang.
He sang the saddest song ever sung by a bird, and it was too late. He was too close to the ground.

you didn't make a song this week? Dropped to 7 songs.

Yeah, my sleep schedule is awesome. I can't make noise when people are sleeping here, so I couldn't record anything

I swear there's someone like this every week. You could try finishing it this weekend and submitting it for next week. It's not really cheating if you still do it in a week's time I guess. Or start a new one in the weekend and finish during the week, idk.

EDIT: I assume you've started mid-week because you were saying you didn't know what to write about 2 days ago or something.

I'll just start a new one for next friday.

I voted for ehbacon's. I liked the tune even though it didn't have vocals, but I could also hear vocals in my head that would've gone with it nicely. Also liked nico's guitar work on his.
#12
Is it me or ehbacon's progression is similar(not saying that's a rip off) in parts to RHCP scar tissue? Nice one(still tryin to listen to the rest of them).

(Futile attempt at raising the number of voters)

You don't have to just focus on analyzing every single song. You can put the songs playing in the background while you browse and vote on the one that was the most memorable by the end.
#16
I'm over my head in work atm, but I'll probably have some more time the next couple of weeks. I'll see if I can record some stuffs.

For this week I voted for sickman, so deliciously gloomy.

Just listened to it and it is similar in some parts, but I assure you it wasn't a ripoff because I don't listen to them often.


Edit: thanks everybody who voted for me, I want to collab with a vocalist next week if anybody's up for that.

Hmm... My current user title is just a full stop. That could use an improvement. (Thanks!)

My song this week was a bit conditioned by the fact that the intonation in my B and high E strings is a bit off and I didn't have the time to spend on trying to fix that so I had to use just the other four.

Anyway, I went with chev311e. Loved the slide intro. Solid song structure too. And seriously, if you ever want me to vote for you, use the major III chord in a major key abundantly.

EDIT: Bacon, I might do your vocals. Do you think you'll be finished by Tuesday? My last chance to record will be either Wednesday morning or Thursday morning. I actually wanted to offer my services this week but I had absolutely no time.

I would be interested but I'm not sure if I have the time next week, maybe the week after.

Glad I could help with that .

I can definitely finish by Tuesday, if not sooner. I'll message you when I start getting a song together.


Edit: ^whenever you have time, I would like to collab as much as possible so any week you have time that would be great

Why haven't we been getting as many votes in the last couple of weeks? It's strange, since the threads all go up at the same day of the week & time of day.

So yeah vote vote vote vote vote.

Idk, I can sort of understand it. If I wasn't in the competition, I don't know how long I'd be bothered to keep listening and voting on these songs.
#26
Yeah I know and I really appreciate that people come here and listen to our stuff but why does it fluctuate so much though? It's always either around 30 or less than 20.
Anyway, I just thought I'd get this some exposure.

there are 30 people in the group so you'd think we'd get at least 30 votes a thread

So I'm giving this a little final bump just to see if anyone wants to listen and possibly vote in these last few hours.
