Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

Tomdg – How do you say Tomdg? The long chains of lyrics are pretty interesting. The lyrics themselves could do, I think, with more specificity. Almost every noun in there is abstract: dream, news, soul, nightmare, fears, terror, heart, pain, disbelief, hate, prejudice, lust, power, curse, state, po...

Re: Screaming Into The Void

Wednesday morning, two a.m. I tried to sleep, a futile dream I cannot bear to check the news I cannot trust another soul I wake to nightmare incarnate My fears confirmed, the terror chokes My heart with pain and disbelief, To hate unsheathed, to prejudice unfurled The lust of power, the curse of Cai...

Re: Aren't we all just (Screaming Into The Void prefight)

I thought the title sounded like "The Same Deep Water As You", which I now appreciate even more.

Re: If we make it (Better Luck Next Year reviews)

Tomdg : bold choice to make your live song so bass-riff heavy! It's a good riff though and makes this stand out from the guitar-heavy songs. Interesting lyrics for the most part although the over-emphasis of "obviously" towards the start struck me as odd. I really like the way the title line falls ...

Re: Not much to do but (Sitting In The Life Boat reviews)

Tomdg—This reminds me of early Midnight Oil (I really like Midnight Oil), which is probably not a comment you expected to get. Funnily enough, I thought of them this week (BLNY). Not so much the sound, but something they said about how the fight to restore the land stolen from original Australians ...

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Well ... I've uploaded a fight for this week, a video I had done previously of another songfight song, a new version of an old songfight song of mine, and a cover of my favourite songfight song ever. Well ... the latter two are uploading now, if they fail you won't see them ... Hopefully you've got ...

Re: Let's just hope for (Better Luck Next Year prefight)

Live video incoming, full of one-take goodness (oxymoron?) Slightly different backing for a bit of variety. If I'm going to submit it for the "dead" fight as well then I'll add some more stuff, maybe play around with it a bit. And yes, 2016 wasn't the best.

Hi all - so I'm pretty new to Logic still, and obviously made a terrible mistake. Sorry about that.
No worries, I was just pulling your leg. I know it was just an oversight really and it’s of no matter.
I had to laugh at this having done exactly the same thing myself last time!

Tomdg - Love the energy here. I hope, politically, this is mostly a sarcastic viewpoint. But either way, a good song is a good song. It certainly doesn’t outstay its welcome. Great job.

Be reassured on that one, 100% :) and thankyou.

Is it a Rickenbacker? If so, I guess that's good news, but not necessarily if it's a Fender :D
lol :) It's a cheap copy of a Hofner violin bass, so I have no idea if that's good news or not. But I like the sound anyway :)

So, in the spirit of, if I post here prematurely, maybe I'll summon up the courage to record the vocals ... it's short and it's dirty, and my (new!) bass guitar sounds surprisingly like a Rickenbacker.

Re: Near enough to perfect... (Bent Straight reviews)

Whatever chord change that is under the title line "bent straight" it's tasty. It almost sounds major to minor but.. maybe major 7th or?... okay put me out of my misery, what is it? So the song's in E, and the chords go from an F#m to Am, so it's a 2 to a minor 4. The voicings on the chords aren't ...

Re: Near enough to perfect... (Bent Straight reviews)

It’s super interesting to me to hear how other people go about writing their lyrics. My approach is to think about the prompt for a while until I settle on an idea (in this case bending light > gravity > general relativity), then I choose a structure and write to it in no particular order.
