yeh, i'm trying work on a new, simpler song now and will post it eventually. i had one started that i liked but it was more organic and now the person who's equipment i was using has it. it's too much to re-work. need a bass guitar espcially. also my band has been recording the last two weeks so i've had little time to spend on this. hopefully by the weekend.

another one bites the dust... [Nov. 15th, 2008|09:30 am]

hey guys...

So things have been too hectic for me to complete a song this cycle, another band that has played with my band a bunch of times lost there bassist so I am quickly trying to learn their songs to help them out on shows plus I have been jamming with a few other guys as well so I am maxed out music wise.

I wish I was able to finish my zombie song as I had a good idea in my head but I am not going to throw it together last minute to get crap. I will probably end up using it in one of the bands i am in.

this has been a great experience and I was able to stretch my writing abilities (and even did a muppet!).

I hope you guys keep this up and one day i can return but i think for now it is more fair for everyone if I step out.

keep up the rock as I will be listening!

Hello [Nov. 14th, 2008|11:14 pm]
prosody and melody songwriting project
Hello everyone.
                My name is Patrick. I am the newest member and a friend of Rodneys. I'm excited to be participating in this group and already had allot of fun making my Zombie song. I am using Cubase to record and have not even come close to figuring it out yet. (does anyone else happen to use it or is it shit?) I know very little about recording, or computers in general. (and mine is a real piece of shit) I play the guitar, bass, and drums. I also dabble with the banjo, mandalin, and keyboard. I have been in several bands and musical projects over the years but am currently in none. 
               For my zombie song I tried to make the music sound as "zombiesk" as possible.  I used an electric, acoustic, bass, drum set, and keyboard. For effects I used a "Big Muff" and a Vox wah wah. Other than that there are very few effects on the song. (just some reverb on a few vocal tracks) I am less than satisfied with the vocals like I usually am when I finish a song, but I'm going to try to use this project as a way to improve my voice. Also I have no clue how to go about trying to master my songs when I finish them so the mix sounds ok but the eq on the whole track could use work. (I'm sure I'll figure this all out as I get more used to the program.)  I'm looking forward to seeing what other people think of my work,and to here everyone elses take on each weeks topic and where they go with it.  This group is such a sweet way to have fellow musicians give you their honest opinion.  ok..... looking forward to the next topic..... Thanks for accepting me to your group....

Lyrics to - Friends like these. (huh Gary)

My friend seems strange these days.
I never see him blink as he stares to space.
His face is pale as paste, he smells like shit,
he walks with his legs perfectly straight.

You lost your life and came back seven months ago.
I know it's dark and cold, time goes so slow below
the cellar stairs where you have made your home.
                                    oh no...

Now when he comes around he's always down.
Just fumbles around and pounds em' down,
breaks my house, and goes insane.
I know he'd love to eat my brain but
we're dear friends and where else would he stay?
Have you gone insane? Man ever since you died you realy changed.

I have a friend, Pat Hanright, who is really interested in joining the group. He's been working on a song for Zombies incase all is good. Is everyone OK with that? And if so, does anyone know how he sets up a boringstory upload account?

Sorry folks. I don't know if I'll be able to record my song. Water had gotten all over my macbook. A very disgusting, sticky, brown water from a bathtub overflow upstairs. I'll see about maybe recording short songs on my phone and uploading them though! ZOMBIES.

Needle And Thread [Nov. 3rd, 2008|10:23 pm]
prosody and melody songwriting project
I pat my pockets for keys
Don't want to get locked out
There's no one else living here

I make my way down the block
The cold wind burns my face
Wish the corner store was near
Another lonely year

12 more hours to go
Before the morning bright
To hole up here
And make it through the night

I feel the hole in my shirt
Buttons don't last that long
The one you promised to mend

I choose my drink at the store
Small talk the nice old man
About how we were once friends
We're on the mend again

12 more hours to go
Before the morning bright
To hole up here
And make it through the night

12 more hours to go
To try to feel alright
I pack it in so early in the fight

I don't want to be
Just don't want to be
