this guy i used to ply guitar with pretty much told me to go screw myself and joined another band.he wasnt willing to wait for me to get back from iraq.so anyways i asked if i could change up one of the songs we wrote and his words were"go ahead dude, i dont even like that song anymore, keep it." so i re wrote most of the song and spiced up the original parts, threw that bitch on myspace , and bam, people like. i guess he got wind of it, and him and his band recorded the old version , and he messages me, " dude, it sounds great , but u need to change it, cuz we are playing that song live," my version is about two minutes longer with like 12 different riffs, and has like a trivium/a7x feel to it, while the older version that they are playing, has 4 different riffs and sounds like a children of bodem in training type deal. so what should i do?? i know this ****er is gonna go around playin his version live, but i spent 6 mos writing this song, and i dont want to just throw it away!!!

no, just this on in particular. i kept changing parts and adding stuff here and there and it took me six months to expand on it, instead of just throwin some riffs together, i took alot of time to do arrrangements and make the song interesting, besides, i work 12 hrs a day 7 days a week....so yeah my free time is a wee bit limited

copyright it then sue their asses

It sounds like you did most of the work on the song. You can copyright it, and if they try to sue you, you'll have pretty much everything going for you: You have the legal rights to the song, the guy said he didn't care, and then when he found out people liked it decided to take it back (sounds like an Indian giver).

tl;dr he's a spoiled brat and you should copyright the song.

Go talk to axemanchris in the Bandleading forum. Basically if you take it and change the melodies and stuff he can't do anything about it.

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.

I'd kindly like to say that I did not penetrate your post ^^ Sorry if I offended, I can get quite elitist about grammar! But seriously, copyright it THEN write a better song aswell.

There is only one option.

why didn't someone tell Cliff Burton that ? (in regards to Orion)


i say keep your version, hes just jealous because your version is far superior to his in technical terms, and fears ridicule and embarassment from his adoring fans

He said you could re-write it. Therefore, you have his consent, and the song is yours now because you re-wrote it to something you saw as fit. Therefore, screw him and keep the song.
