Free week!

To celebrate this Free Week, here are some facts related to freedom that I totally didn't copy from another site and I totally checked to see if they were all true (if I hypothetically hadn't copied them from a site, that is... what?):

- Australia banned porn featuring small breasts.

- China banned consoles.

- Russian banned emo clothing.

- China banned reincarnation without prior consent, just to fuck with Tibet.

- Iran has a list of government-approved hairstyles, if it's not on the list, it's banned.

- Saudi Arabia banned Valentine's Day.

- Denmark banned Ovaltine and Marmite.

- China (ffs) banned jasmins.

Banning is no fun.
Still in 2014, power-hungry UG mods are banning innocent users like Philip_pepper and K'Nuckles. Make them stop.

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 - "Breath" (ehbacon)

2 - "Make It Through The Day" (Joshua1207)

3 - "Sound (Trans)" (MapOfYourHead)

4 - "The Sham" (FoOltz)

5 - "No Power In The 'Verse Can Stop Me" (whywefight)

6 - "The Surgeon" (chev311e)

Here are last time's most voted FREE WEEK SONGS, from MapOfYourHead, the song "Wrath It Up", and from ibanez1997, the song "Cloudborne (demo)"!


Here is last week's most voted COVER, from chev311e, the song "Precipitate (Azedia cover)"!

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.

Indeed, this is how anxiety starts:

they'll probably ban me for this post

I'll let you off with a verbal warning.
1 - "Breath" (ehbacon)

Sounds nice. Should've brought more the the plate after the silence. Where's the drop lol? But, seriously, not much happening in this piece and zero variation. Some rhythmic or harmonic changes would've been nice

2 - "Make It Through The Day" (Joshua1207)

I like this type of music. Reminds me of the sort of stuff below [1]. Naive. Nostalgic. Fulfilling. However, Better sound production will do wonders. It sounds very structured and rigid though. Having it a bit more freeflowing would be good, as it sounds very basic as is. Have a listen to [2].



3 - "Sound (Trans)" (MapOfYourHead)

*Scratches beard

4 - "The Sham" (FoOltz)

Post-182. Sounds amazing. dischordant. Garage. Carefree. Buzzwords galore.

5 - "No Power In The 'Verse Can Stop Me" (whywefight)

Agghhh that sample sounds like midi. The rigidness of the chords and drums are really distracting me here. Make that pad polyphonic so each note bleeds into the next a bit. Vocals are very good. Very Thomie Yorke. End section sounds good even with the instrumentation. This song would be pretty good without the subpar backing, and I know you should bass your vote on content blah blah blah but I bit of reverb wouldn't go amiss...

6 - "The Surgeon" (chev311e)

Catchy stuff. Probs the best singer-songerwriter thing I've heard in this comp for a while. It's like a real song and everything. Good jerb.
what if china bans UG?

There shall be a stop to this madness. The battle is not over. My tasty licks aren't going anywhere.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

I guess Xiaoxi would stop coming to UG, even though he could easily find a work-around because he's asian.
I'll listen tonight. I feel so disappointed in myself for not being able to finish my song for the free week.

Breath - I had this sudden urge to start singing over your song. It's a shame that there are no vocals because I'm pretty sure there is a melody line in there that is just waiting to be 'picked up'. A pretty simple tune but it sounds pretty good, although I don't quite understand the pause in the middle

Make It Through The Day - That contrast tho' - We have this cute little song that sounds so innocent and then we have those odd vocals.

Sound (Trans) - I like the way it builds although it was weird when I finally started to 'get the hang of it'...it changed. This isn't what I usually listen to but I actually like it.

The Sham - Don't give a **** attitude - A lot of energy. I think stuff like this would work great in front of a live audience. Catchy.

No Power In The 'Verse Can Stop Me - Those synths in the middle sound so good. At times the drums seem a little bit weird and I don't necessarily mean the 'sound' (the production) but the rhythm they carry, but I guess that was the point. Anyway, overall I like the song.

The Surgeon
- I usually like the stuff you do. This is no exception. I would've LOVED some harmonies on that chorus. I need to figure out the chords. (VOTED)

The original was 12 minutes long, but I cut it down for you guys and then accidentally deleted the long version
enablisized for downloadization.

also, thanks for the votes everyone, and bacon, check yo pms
