I always see people on the pit saying things like "zomg whyz no1 care bout deh rock opera!11 lazy phux!1 wut r we, guns n rosez or sumtin?!!"
The amount of activity in this project is a testament to your extreme worth ethic. Jeez, son, take a break or sumtin. Can't you see there's a mile long line of impatient peeps who want to contribute? Back of the line, buddy.
Casper the ghost is apparently the hardest working man in showbusiness.
I'm a New Yorker. Deal with it.
Here's track 4, by the way:
Took me long enough, huh?
Edge of Desire is an amazing song
I feel like I'm in the minority here but I didn't dislike Battle Studies, there are a few tracks I skip past but there's a couple on all of his releases that I do that with
Its hard to defend pop music because of who is under the pop umbrella. I think of pop and I think of Rhianna. There was a story about her I read which broke down the reason it cost her $500,000 to produce one song and it was because she had to pay all these people to do the work for her. She paid someone to write the song, the people to make the music for her, she even had an expense for a vocal instructor who literally came in and showed her how to sing the melody. Literally the only thing she did on her own song was come in and do voice over work like an actor for a animated movie. There are a lot of people who sing well, but if you cant write your own music or play an instrument then I have no respect for that person as someone who is supposed to be a professional creator of music. Its the reason Mayer is the good kind of pop and Rhianna is the bad, but like I said, when it comes to pop music, then are probably 50 Rhiannas for every 1 Mayer.
Just saw that there's movement in the soundcloud. Steph, KTFM, and Cavalcade - you may want to consider making a new thread so that you can keep the OP up to date.
Unfortunately I'm still unable to record, but there is a slight possibility that may change soon. I'll keep you all posted if there's movement.
EDIT: Who the fuck is Colleen?
I can help. Not much, but I'll do what I can
And people tend to forget he's not only stuck to blues. I'd like to see any of those guitar players ragging on him pull off any of his acoustic stuff. Double dare.
Well not to rain on the parade here but I must say that though John is a good singer with a unique sounding voice and a fair songwriter, I do not at all consider him to be any kind of notarious guitar player. Don`t get me wrong, he can play it`s just that people are so quick these days of hanging tags around peoples necks. tags such as legend or best. He is a decent player but his primary audience is teenage girls. He is in know way even comparable to the guitar legends of blues. No way no how. I mean think about this before you lose your kool. We`re talking about Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Hendrix, Albert King, Muddy waters, etc.etc. Now some of these guys are better than others but its a scale of time thing along with their revolutionary effect on guitar and music in general. So no I`m no fan of Mayer, I agree that he has some good attributes but I really don`t think he will ever be more than a pop artist.
Hey, guys. Sorry to have to write this, but I think it's gotten to the point where I need to. There's a kind of complicated situation at home right now that's been preventing me from playing my guitar for the last several months, and I have too many other priorities right now to even kid myself about focusing on this. I like to do what I can to try to see the projects I start finished, but this is something I can't put any more time or energy into for the forseeable future. Effective immediately, I'm ending my involvment in the rock opera. You guys can still keep it going if you want, but I'm out. Sorry things had to happen this way.
something like olivia has a nice vibe. it sounds really "home'y" to me. and yes, i agree with you on the battle studies disappointment. but in a way, that one was a good album too. this one though, is more of my taste. much like continuum.
yea man u hear the previews? i'm feeling all of them man. gonna be my personal big hit.
if you haven't checked it out, on itunes the preorder of born and raised is $10.99. you can hear previews of all the songs too. i'm diggin' queen of california!
I know everyone always says this about any album artwork but damn, that shit's ugly.
Dude, this tune is awesome! Gracias!
This, and I'm a countryfag.
i like the new song...
no comment on that snippet...
The man's voice should be ok again and the album will be released "when it gets warm" so between March and May I guess... No idea what's the album is going to be like to be honest. It could very well be that he has changed the songs completely since he last tested them live
Almost done with track 6. Just need to tweak the melody a little and record it.
