Hello again


Gee, Taylor Swift is pretty.

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 - "Holy Clipping" (Minicaxotinho)

2 - "You" (chev311e)

3 - "Bad Night" (boooysti)

4 - "In The Jaws Of The Machine" (FoOltz)

5 - "Acid Tongues" (whywefight)

Here is last week's most voted song, from MapOfYourHead, the song "Leather", with 4 votes!

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.

Some say Fenton is still chasing wild animals, all around the world.

Oh poop, I was going to comment on some songs from last week, but I totally forgot. I did vote however.

I've just finished listening to this week's songs. I'm torn between Holy clipping and Acid tongues. The clipping sound in Mini's song I find genuinely really cool. The riff in Acid tongues is really catchy though.
Voted for whywefight, but in the jaws of the machine was a close second (best one i've heard of fooltz)
Just cause you feel it, doesn't mean it's there.
I actually think the clipping is great too lol

listening now

Holy Clipping (Minicaxitinho):

I am surprising drawn to the clipping sound I don't know why

There were parts where it didn't seem like the two bass parts were in time with each other. They also didn't seem like they were in 100% in tune with each other either. There were some generally cool ideas in this song, makes me wonder why I can't recall any band with two basses before. This just needs some polishing up.

You (Chev311e):

I think the part guitar part should've been a quiet electric instead of a loud acoustic. The quiet electric would've sounded cleaner and helped helped with the feel of the song in my opinion. I would've also liked there to be more variety of parts in the song, a second guitar throughout the song and maybe a keyboard would've completely the sound better. The song takes a long to progress, for the first half it doesn't seem like it is going anywhere. The electric that comes in at the end doesn't seem to fit the song either. I think that it should've been less distorted, the tone sounds a little too heavy for the song. The vocals were nice but a didn't have much variation in pitch. The lyrics were good, not cliche but were a little repetitive. The song has good potential but I don't think it quite met it here.

Bad Night (Boooysti):

I know that quality of recording isn't supposed to be a factor but it really didn't help you because at times it was hard to here what was going on. It seemed to me you had a hard time keeping the beat, so I would try playing with a metronome sometimes. I also wish there was more variety of parts in this song aswell, the one guitar part just doesn't seem to do it for the song.

In the Jaws Of The Machine (FoOltz):

Very mysterious sounding. Reminds me of a lot of underground grunge stuff. THe use of multiple parts really helped complete the sound of this song. The guitar parts were a bit repetitive but they were interesting enough to get away with it. The vocals were good, the multiple vocal tracks really helped accomplish the feel of the song. The lyrics were nice, not repetitive or cliche at all. Very nice work!

Acid Tongues (WhyWeFight):

Acid Tongues (WhyWeFight):

I really liked that riff from Holy Clipping, I don't know what it is, it's just unique.
I went with "You" in the end, the melody is really catchy and the vocals sound really good.
Ok, since some of you said you liked that sound, here's what I did:

I recorded a clean guitar track, tuned to drop C, front pickup selected and tone knob set to 0, hoping to get a trippy 70's vibe. It kinda sounded as intended, but not on the recording.

Trying to save it, I duplicated the track and panned one to the right and one to the left, but didn't align them properly. Then I added a Phaser effect to the track on the right, and compressed some troublesome areas on both tracks.
I think I also added a bit of Phaser on the left track at some point, and used an option/effect called Invert on small bits of the tracks (even though I don't know what that does and didn't care to find out, didn't hear much difference). (Used Audacity btw.)

EDIT: Also used the Tremolo effect on the left track, starting somewhere in the second half of the song, but I don't think it made much difference.

Probably what you guys liked was the Phaser effect + slightly misaligned tracks panned to the left and right.

I've tried using guitars with the tone rolled back a bit before too but its really easy to overdo and just get really muddy tracks.

But I have used digital clipping as an effect before. I used my backup amp on ode to loneliness and the overdrive sounded terrible so I just clipped a clean guitar signal and it sounded kinda rad

Torn between "You" and "In the Jaws of the Machine". Both excellent. Tough choice, wish I could vote for both.
Geez, last time I checked wwf had like all the votes

Thanks for the kind words guys.

^Also, I don't really hear that sickman. But it is good to know that one of my old songs had some sort of impression on you
