I was thinking of doing a classic rock style song with a cool wah lead to show off my skilz.... Instead I hit it fast and hard(ish). Side challenge accepted.

In, with wah - a splash of Shaft-esque rhythm and some mellower strums

In with my take on some cheesy pop, though it probably doesn't sound like pop at all, it probably sounds like BW+TBW since that's what I do :D

Edit: all challenges were accepted.

^^^ And while she was doing her own pop song, I borrowed her for some death growls.

In hindsight I didn't use the title directly, but the entire scene that takes place in my first verse occurs with a bunch of smoke everywhere. So it's still topical.

The prompt was to make a Halloween track right? Because I am in with a Halloween track, thumb piano included.

In, once again with better drums than I could have mustered from drummer friend Steve. I didn't run out and get a thumb piano, but I used my dumpster-rescued Korg T1's kalimba voice, so I kinda half-assed the main challenge. Ran my soprano sax through a Cry Baby for the side challenge.

I'm in with a spooky track about pod people.
I am definitely too square for how experimental this is, but I can imagine that if I was in the right state of mind, the section starting at 2:20 might transport me to another dimension - jeffhenderson

I'm in with an ode to my favorite childhood pizza place. I'm not particularly happy with this one. I did get a kalimba in, though.

I made a song. It has a kalimba in it. Like about 75% of my other songs.
