so now he is in a new band...and took all my songs with him..but heavily butchered them

Lame, that seems to happen to me as well.
He sucks, and he's not serious. Let him go.

learn from it and start a new band.



thats the thing...we were never a band...he just said we were for popularity reasons because people know me as an exceptional guitarist


he stole my shizz and butchered it horribly and says he will play it as his own...

i know he probably wont gig...or anything, but i dont want people thinking he made it or getting recognition for my hard work

Do what Dave Mustaine did and play them the way you wrote them and show everyone they're better your way, Mechanix Style.

You say he stole your songs.... what, exactly, did he steal? Lyrics? Vocal melodies? Chord progressions? Riffs? Guitar parts? Drum beats? Bass lines? All that stuff?

there's a term for this. it's called "copyright infringement." it's also illegal. unless you live in the U.S. then I could be wrong but I'm not sure if your songs are technically copyrighted unless they're registered.

He needs to have them copywrited, though.
Just play them. You wrote the songs, and you can play them better than he can.

The copyright thing is what I was getting at. That's the reason for my question, as some parts are copyright-able and others aren't.

You just wrote the songs and showed him how to play them. Unless you have proof that you wrote the songs by yourself, and his music is similar to yours, you can't really do anything.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
