Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Congrats to Merisan! There were so many good songs in this round, as others have already noted. I think that accounts for part of the large disparity in judges' scores - when everyone is jostling for the top, a small difference in opinion translates to a very different ranking - I noticed that every...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Micah Sommersmith- I enjoy you backwards vocals. You took a similar approach to the Cavedwellers. I’d love to see your phonetic backwards-English notes, if you approached it like I did. Love all the lyrics in this song. Very cool stuff. Thanks for the kind words! I wrote one verse, recorded it and ...

The weirdest instrument I own is my accordion... and also my three other accordions.

Since no one wants to listen to accordion-driven doom metal, I think I will be sitting this one out.

Re: Old Friends (will at least give you Reviews)

Some really good songs in this fight! Andy Balham - Solid though not particularly memorable tune. Nice synth melody between verses and in the ending. The production could use more variety between the verses and chorus, even if it's just more involved percussion during the chorus, or something. Balan...

Re: Song Fight Live 2017 in ... ???

I wouldn't be able to travel outside the midwest. I don't know how many other midwestern Songfighters there are. Is it true that SF Live was in Madison, WI at one point? That's barely an hour from me. But Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul are happenin' cities too. Not that I know anything about anyth...

Audio-Technica AT2035 mic

I'm looking into upgrading my condenser mic (I currently am using the PreSonus M7 which came with the AudioBox USB bundle and which was itself an upgrade from the RadioShack dynamic mic I got in high school). The Audio-Technica AT2035 has great reviews everywhere online that I've seen, and is priced...

Re: Open to anything

Thanks Chumpy and jast. Just thinking out loud here, but it'd be really cool to be able to automate stem generation, such that anybody can share projects with anybody regardless of DAWs. And then you could even use a source control during the writing phases. For instance, in my DAW of choice, I cou...

Re: I Made a Deal with the Devil (Oh My Soul Reviews)

As for consonance vs. assonance, I present to you some German and Italian lyrics from songs popular in my country: Thanks for these examples! The only exposure I really have to song texts in German or Italian is the classical music I sang in college. Curious what kind of rhymes they used, I went ba...

Re: I Made a Deal with the Devil (Oh My Soul Reviews)

I SAID I WAS DONE BUT I WASN'T, SORRY EVERYONE. if that's a rhyme, fall . I'd count soul/fall as a partial rhyme like many others on my chart - e.g. road, know, etc. However yours is the only one that matches the consonant vs the vowel (consonance vs assonance). I think that assonance is much more f...

Re: I Made a Deal with the Devil (Oh My Soul Reviews)

First of all, thanks for your in-depth analysis. I enjoy it as much as everyone else here. Perhaps even a bit more, because I'm slightly autistic. Yes, you just got praised by an autistic. I guess that makes you super nerdy. :P Hey, I'll take your autistic praise over boring old neurotypical praise...

I have to confess that, if "see my face staring back at me" is a reference, it was not intentional. What did you take it as a reference to? I thought you were making a reference to "Mr. Jones," by Counting Crows: "When I look at the television, I wanna see me, staring right...

Re: I Made a Deal with the Devil (Oh My Soul Reviews)

I’m going to guess that you wrote the lyrics first and then wrote the music separately. Yes, I did. The main thing I learned from the experiment was not to do it again. The more you write, the more you will write automatically with an ear for how your words will work musically, even if you aren't w...
