;)

I don't even have auto-tune. I used to, it can serve a purpose... like when the feeling is perfect in a vocal take but you were a bit flat on a few notes. It's actually worth it to keep the feel. But it ruins the sound of the human voice if you ask me. I like when someone raises the hairs on my back singing, thats never happened to me with auto-tune.

So the thread wasn't created to share music you've written and recorded? And if you do, there is no constructive criticism at all, just stupid comments with a smiley face? What's the point?

How neat. I think music is a great hobby and I encourage people to participate and learn it. You are about as creative as your lame jokes. Razz

Lol, that coming from you means nothing. [deleted] so as not to offend the turd [deleted]

Honestly, most of what I play is what I come up with, since it's so much easier than covering another artists work. I'm a hobby, novice guitar player that has just recently even been able to tune the damn thing. I said your vocals were thin and muddy, what the hell else you want. Eat shit and die [Smile]

Nothing wrong with any level of playing. Why some crack about "mtv"? Go be a novice then... I won't help you with your petty attitude.

Jesus man I got you all wrong. Did you not get that I was joking and it was actually a compliment to your playing and a dispersion on todays new 'artists' and the use of pitch shift just so you can listen to something while they shake their ass? Didn't ask for help, just wanted to meet some new musicians. You got issues dont ya?

Gotta be careful joking with comrade themeat whatpuppet adamskibrobro Wink Or at least be prepared to be mystified and amazed. For example, my Auto-tune comment was carefully calibrated to provoke discussion rather than inflame (although either result would have been acceptable to me)

To both of you I say: GG. GEE GEE.

And maybe one day I'll post some of my musical endeavors. 'bout a year from now, I'm guessing - that is if we're still here and not in Magic Sky Father land (or his evil brother's underground sauna)...

Before that though, I'm going to attempt a glass pyro. I have high hopes.

Around here it's only me being a dick or having issues - everyone else is "just joking". =) It's old and not funny anymore.

I didn't think you were asking for my help, but that happens naturally when you share information and opinions. As far as "shakin' your hips" I danced my ass off on saturday night to club music because thats what it is good for, my feet still are a little sore.

The truth is I used to be a really competent musician with focus on writing... but I could hold my own just fine on guitar and vocs live. Not brilliant, not hack, just solid. It's been 13 years since I was really serious and now I am a hobbyist. Most of my friends are either live musicians or sound guys and gals.

As far as the voice being muddy and thin, that mix was a one off burnt to cd so I could bring it home (you can tell by the mains being turned down right away in the beginning. If it would have mattered he would have re-done it a hundred times). I didn't mix it, my friend who played the v-drums, keys, and bass did in an apartment. If you really want to pick it apart the 2 guitar parts are not really that tight at all, they drag. But I can't listen to it anymore either.

So peace and love and all that happy shit. My reaction was based on years of these jackwipes making cracks about anything you present to them like they are being funny and offer no evidence they can do a damn thing. You DID offer evidence.
Razz

P.S. I have some interest with messing around with music again maybe I'll post something if there is anything interesting and would welcome feedback that isn't based on goading someone over the fuckin' intanet like a pee-stained underwear coward, just sayin'

It's all good man, in fact, when I posted this you were who I had in mind. I've heard some of your other stuff you had posted and knew you were a musician and was hoping I could get some ideas from you. Muddy, yes because of the recording, I threw thin in there just being an asshole but not serious. I'd appreciate hearing something recent, 10 years is a long time.

I have (occasional) hopes that you will learn the difference between busting balls and actual attacks one day. Just as I have occasional hopes that I may be able to play something more complex than Yankee Doodle if I practice real hard every day.

Like maybe Power Chords. whoooo Wink

You can't tell what busting balls is with text. Cowards can always just type "I was just kidding! You are taking this way too seriously." Ok, maybe that dude is right. And if you do the same or are often better at 'ball busting' back it's "you asshole you are so twisted". Fuck that cycle bullshit. OLDE and boring.

Nothing wrong with any chords, it's how you use them. People who knock power chords are looking at guitar playing visually when it's sound. If the chord fits what you are trying to do, use it.

You're not supposed to escalate ball busting because then it turns into a slap fight and everyone looks like a homo.

..and yes the Scorpions showed that it's not the chords it's what you do with them Wink

The worst thing about the Scorpions is that they dont have hurricanes in Germany.

You know, honestly I don't feel I'm in a position to criticize another musicians work. I just listen and try to learn at this point. Funny thing is, This song here was the one I heard on TV and came back here to try and play it. As soon as my G-string went into tune it burst and I ended up just playing around with that e-delay. Yours is closer to it.

This song makes me horny for my ole lady Smile.

Jeez, I picked the first link but this is live version, freakin awesome!

Why not? If it's constructive it doesn't matter - it helps someone understand how someone else perceives it. I do get frustrated with what I call "American Idol" syndrome where everyone around an office watercolor gets to just rip someone with a smug tone in their voice. But that isn't the same as constructive criticism.

Besides, we opened for a band at the 7th street entry once and their guitar player said over a microphone "Those guys sucked". Which is weaksauce, and we didn't, but the skin is thick. =)

Ok. Some of the voicings are awesome. Nice nuances to them, but the whole thing in it's entirety seems frenetic and pissed off. Not relaxing, mellow or soothing at all.

Why should it be soothing or relaxing?
In fact, I don't even know what playing you are typing about. Colors and texture include: RAWR and love and hate and beauty and ugly and everything... why should it be soothing and relaxing? I can hear the soothing sounds of Kenny G and want to throw a chair through a sliding glass window. Razz

Valid point, music can and should elicit any number of emotions, but you don't want to scare your audience off. You want them to leave feeling like you tried to share something good and pleasing to them. Music sets the mood, who the hell wants to be angry and pissed off all the time? Now, if your alone and playing to yourself, it is a great release and fun as hell to make that guitar sound how you feel.

I don't know what that means. Blues cut with some other stuff isn't angry. What does that mean?

Dude, I just wanted to share some music with others in hopes they would share some with me, I can listen to professionals all day long but not from the possible hobbyist guitar players in this community. I have no interest at all in having a philosophical debate over a hobby. Fun, remember?

Yes.
Unfortunately, for all involved I'm re-obsessed with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Downward_Spiral :)

Maybe, we will make happy sing songs together? I can write fast, and you have a sense of melody. With my boy in Brooklyn, we did 6 songs in 4 days.

Shit works out if it wants to. I always wanted to do a song with Jeromie (psion) because we had a funk connection. But that never happened, you should check out his stuff its really good.

I think both versions are perfect and you don't have to choose.
