Re: Ye olde songfight?

Between the Irish and bluegrass I'm into, I could do something like this.

Re: Song Fight Live Online 2020

Just did an Irish music workshop where all the instructors did little virtual sets together at the end. Worked really well. Here's what I'm thinking: We're mostly multi-instrumentalists - instead of recording multiple video takes of ourselves playing various instruments, we cobble together a virtual...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

I think my reviews are pretty blunt, but I try to couch what I'm saying based on what I perceive to be the songfighter's intent, and it's always with a broader goal of improving songfight as a whole. I can't stress that last point enough. To quote MC Frontalot : What you wasting my time for? I don't...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

RE: The combative boards. I contributed greatly. I'm 35 years old. Crazy to think that I've been shitposting at y'all for half my life. It's strange; I'd take these long breaks from SF (military, marriage, divorce, etc.), but when I'd come back, I'd revert back to my teenage shitpost voice. This wei...

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

There's something strange about 2003, for sure. So many of us found our way here around that time. For me, it was Penny Arcade -> MC Frontalot -> Songfight. Fall of '03, I was at my first failed attempt at college at the University of North Texas. Started listening around Gonna Be Your Man (still lo...

Re: You can't restart if you don't (Shutdown reviews.)

Sober, Can you clarify this point? Are you saying there is noise or something that you hear before and after the guitars that should be removed? How are you saying the song should end? Hey Geech. Yeah, the single coil buzz is audible for a half second before the guitar starts playing - trim that cl...

How many OG's do we have in this fight? Ken, Roymond, j$, Wreckdom, reve, me.. Paco kind of counts :P Listened to everything earlier this week on speakers, going through in much more detail on my mix headphones. GF only was around for the first few tracks, so most of you are spared her abuse. Brown ...

Re: You can't restart if you don't (Shutdown reviews.)

Seriously, Sober, that is deeply intense. My mom died Dec 28 in a VT nursing home at 92. They had specialists in dementia and were otherwise insanely attentive. I was there the week before, though she didn't know who we were. Weird to say, but I'm glad she didn't have to live through this. And I'm ...

Sober. Ooo, yeeeaaah. I've totally been using the pandemic to avoid my mom. YOUR MUSIC MAKES ME CONFRONT MY EMOTIONS. What are you using for drums? Drums are the NI Vintage Drummer , specifically the ivory kit set to brushes. Used the same setup on Mythical Creature. Wish the other kits in the seri...

Oof, one vote in it. Through gritted teeth I congratulate you, Gross Tones.
Their votes are astroturfed, so you won. Their wins should all have an asterisk.

Looks like I'll be in after all, with a fine collaboration. See, whining on the internet really does work wonders. Or cause horrors, depending on your taste :)

Good to see you're still around, johnny. When was the last time we were in a fight together? Gotta be ten years.

In! Completely reset the mix I'd done a couple days ago, implementing some things I've been reading. Really happy with the improvement, though I don't know if it was worth the effort :cry:

Re: Have you tried (Shutdown prefight)

Drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, hammond, and ~6 layers of vocals done. Adding mandolin and dobro today.

I'm probably overdoing this.
