Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

I'd be happy to help out on your set, fluffy. I can play bass as long as you're not looking for super complex bass lines. I could play rhythm guitar or keyboard too. My chronic pain issues are still being a problem for me and so I'd appreciate more folks being able to help me out if possible. I'm li...

I squiggled my schedule around a bit, and I will be at both sets!

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

Ooh, Micah, we'd love to have you play accordion on one of our songs if you're game: https://soundcloud.com/sdouglass/merisan-excuse-me There's a little bit of my extremely rudimentary right-hand-only accordion playing in the interludes, and it could probably also benefit from some playing in the p...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

Wow, it's July already and I have been completely forgetting to check the boards about SF Live. Bad form! I can play keyboard or accordion for your set, or, in the event that terrorists take all the talented people hostage, guitar or bass. I'd also be interested in guitar, bass and drums, and maybe ...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Re: the words, Thank you for this reply. I hope my review didn't come across as an attack on you or your political stance, which I am sympathetic to. Your explanation helps clarify the song for me and casts especially the last verse in a very different light than I had originally interpreted it. It...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Not Blue Dolphins - I like the intro, with that catchy lead guitar melody, and the chorus with doubled vocals is pretty solid. I’m not sure if I’m missing something stylistically with the lead vocal in the verses but it’s a real struggle for me, the timing is so weird and the lyrics feel kinda poet...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

I've been listening to and enjoying this fight since it was posted; I wanted to write these reviews earlier but life has kept me busy. Judging from the relative paucity of reviews, I'm not the only one. Cybronica - There's a lot to like about this one. The piano arrangement is tastefully done, it do...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

If the goal is to have better rankings in general, everyone should be required to judge every X Nur Eins. Perhaps extend the round duration such that judges can put more thought in. How many times have you heard “I would have ranked this one higher if I could go back...” To me, the short turnaround...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Should "Possom Sauce" be "Possum Sauce"? The latter is how it's spelled in the ID3 tag, and there's (presumably the same?) artist with two earlier SF entries.

Re: Do we have a chance? (Hope Against Hope prefight)

I thought I wouldn't have a chance at this one but I was with some musical friends and saw this title was still up so we collaborated on an entry, recorded it last night, and submitted as Not Blue Dolphins.

Re: Or else (Bend the Knee prefight)

Just sent mine in, late as usual. I bend the knee in contrition and hope it is accepted.

My song has a female narrator, and I had hoped to collaborate with a female vocalist, but plans kept falling through so you're stuck with me instead. Some suspension of disbelief may be helpful.

That was a truly epic podcast. My apologies to Micah, I read my review post back and I feel bad that I didn't know what to say or how to say it and ended up with a vague criticism that isn't particularly helpful.
That's okay; I would also like to apologize for saying you can suck it.

I'm out of town and I had to bring my work laptop so I could work remotely. I don't have the Fightmaster email set up there, so, I'm not checking that and confirming the receipt of the songs. I'll be back home tomorrow and will get caught up on that then. Do you anticipate you'll be posting the fig...

The Undead Squirrels - Ric Ocasek called, he wants to know if you'll drive him home. The Undead Squirrels - A ramshackle tune. So loose. Your repeated cop of the chorus from Drive by the Cars puts me off. I was born in 1988 (only a decade off, Ryan :P ) and have lots of 80s pop blind spots, so I ha...
