Listened to most of these earlier. Between Skinnys and wwf/fooltz but I went with the latter. Good songs all around.
#3
Much thanks^


Skinny, what did you do for drums? They sound great

I really liked chevelle's (and all of them really) but I ended up going for skinny
#4
Went with Joshua's, I love how the song got darker as it went along.
#6
I ended up voting for Blue Moon. I really enjoyed it. Nico your playing reminds me of Joe Satriani somewhat, both this song and last week's.
#7
Alright lets give these a listen, I'll attempt to give a write up on everyone.

___

nico_9550 - Blue Moon:

Good pacing and instrumentation, reminds me of an interlude at the middle of an album, like its a break before a very uptempo track. I like the background swells as well.


whywefight, FoOltz - IATWAYARC:

I like where the drums come in against the riff, which has a nice simple heavy vibe. Great solo after the first chorus which I think was a good placement in the structure of the piece. Great song, love the feel.


Joshua1207 - Motion Progress:

I like the drums on this, very piecing Hi-hats against a punchy kick. Interesting atmospheric sounds as well.


chev311e - Bleed:

Great energy for an acoustic track. Nice dynamics on the rhythm guitar on the solo as well as the solo itself. Really like the melody, Second solo is really good as well.


Scarmadillo - Intensity:

Nice intro, I like the 6/8 feel as well. When the last section with only guitar happened I thought it was going to go into some crazy double time part haha. The electronics make it very tight and punchy as well.

I went for Why We Fight/Footz in the end, though Chev311e was a close second.

Thanks man I recorded a loop with brushes so its a little softer than normal drums, then I think its just a lot of reverb, but I also put a light tremolo on it, it gave the cymbals a cool sound though I think I ended up leaving it pretty low in the mix. Theres also some shakers with the same effects but a more intense tremolo effect.

I have no idea who to vote for. I'm going to give them another listen later and then decide.

Also, Soundcloud needs to sort out its related songs algorithm.


Anyway, I thought of making a thread in the group with a list of every song by everyone, sorted by UGer, with links. What do you guys think?

Thanks, I appreciate it. He's a great influence in my playing.

I voted for chevelle's after a couple of listens, I really could have gone for anyone this week but Bleed is stuck in my head now

Fracture plays every time after I listen to any song on soundcloud

Sounds like a good idea

I thought I read that related song plays didn't count?

And that's a good idea

They do count. Up to a while ago you could even see the number go up when a song ended and the related started. Also, there's no other explanation for the fact that one of my songs has so many more plays.

Look at SunshineMusicO's account and the plays for the song "Love". (It's that one that used to show up everywhere in the first few weeks, the one that went "Let me tell you a story...")

@sickman: That'd be cool, but doing that seems so tedious. Are you sure you wanna do it?
(I'm lazy, can you tell?)

Fracture automatically plays every time I finish listening to any songwriting game song. So it probably gets about 10 plays from me per week.

Sickman has it rigged, I know it.

I'd do it a bit at a time.

I tried making Fracture private just to see what would happen. It suggested The Burnout Gang instead, and a bunch of my other songs.

I voted for Exactly That. Really strong submissions by Nico, Joshua and Chev as well. It was hard to decide.

Also, Spoony, I'm not sure why I found that so amusing but I'm going to sig you.
