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

Wow, it's incredible how long it's been around. I first started assaulting the ears of this community back in 2009, but was too dense to realize there were boards until 5 years later. I know I've been telling people in my life how cool the idea behind the site was since I first found it, but I didn'...

Re: Scooby Snacks for (Another Mystery Solved reviews)

This is my first round of reviews in a long, long time. They’re going to be pretty superficial while I get my sea legs back. Add: Like the sounds of the instruments. Appreciate the vocal harmony throughout, I’m always such a sucker for it. I really dig the post-chorus lead guitar line both times it ...

Re: Not front page news (A 9/11 Every Day prefight)

We don't know how to blues, but we're gonna try!

Edit: This one turned out weird. We're somewhere in that place between cliche, dark, and funny. Punk cheese.

Re: Case closed! (Another Mystery Solved prefight)

I'm in! This will be a special one for me. 10 years ago, I sat in front of a crappy laptop on vacation with my brother, and we recorded our first songfight together. We had a ukulele, our voices, and Audacity (and a random band name generator. "Ukulele Train and the Men" will ride again someday, but...

I'm collaborating with someone over the internet for the first time, though this turned out to be much easier than I expected. We're calling ourselves "Bridger."

It's happened. At long last. I'm in again. But this time with people I work with, so I'll be submitting as "The Gauchos"
Foxglove (to my knowledge) has the toxic effect of speeding up your heart till you die. Fun!

Re: Any animal (Pick An Animal prefight)

Ok. I joined the facebook page, so that's good!
Pick an animal, huh? I think I can tie this in with The Rat Brain. And George Orwell. I think.
And Lunkhead got me thinking in two chords, but then I ruined that with the bridge. Oh well. Life philosophy: close enough.
Anyway, I'm in!

Re: Dawn, Diary, Land, Survival, and (Day of the Dead review

Yes, I think you're right, a casualty of the time limit. Do you recommend using an entirely different beat in some sections, or just adding a fill from time to time? Right now I just have parts there or not there throughout... I hear ya! I think a different beat in the sections (chorus vs verse vs ...

Caravan Niveous Ooh, I like this one right away. Verse sounds really cool. Damnit, this is cool. :D I might have brought that rhythm guitar up a little more to give the song more impact at parts.
