I took a four week vacation, partly with the intention of recording some vocals for my many instrumental tracks. However I spent the whole holiday learning web development and getting drunk in the evenings and recalling fonder memories of times past... I only managed to record vocals one day for about 4 hours and it was almost a total loss. I only managed to get a single line down really. I wrote more lyrics but the takes for those were unusable. Well, here it is for better or worse with the single line repeating over and over on a loop... [more inside]
This is a guitar-only outtake from another song I did. I was going to use it as a outro on that song but the original clocked in a 9 minute time already so it got discarded. But still, I like the feeling of it...especially as it's guitar with no other instruments ;)
I was really happy with this one when I first recorded it about 19 months ago. Listening to it now, I realise it was given way too much compression in the mastering phase. unfortunately I have lots the master project now with a faulty hard drive so it it what it is... [more inside]
Another combination of Guitar vs. Keyboards. Guitar gets the first move this time.
just a guitar riff I've been working on. Not sure where to take it exactly.
Feeling a bit down tonight so I went looking through my projects and tried to fix up old throw away songs. This is one that's not too bad. An idea I hadn't quite fleshed out instrumentally. But why not throw on some improve vocals to make it feel more whole?
So...I didn't think I'd have time to work on a new song but the last 24 hours have freed up so... [more inside]
I'm trying to come up with vocals for this one and really struggling tonight. I had an idea, which was to just use pitch correction. I actually kind of liked it. At the risk of sounding like kanye west, i think it helped me get the melodies from my head onto the track without me immediately deleting it. I think maybe I'll use it as a guide track to get a usable take.
I let a few people hear this before (both here and elsewhere) and they all wanted a mix with higher vocals (despite the fact that I've assured everyone the vocals were total rubbish). So I've re-mixed it and re-mastered and now you might be able to hear my voice. If you still can't understand me, I've included the very depressing lyrics below. [more inside]
Just another instrumental rock song. A few more electronic elements added in this time but overall, still very much guitar based.
Another attempt at songwriting. Unfortunately the vocals were so bad I almost deleted them. Instead I just backgrounded them.
Another one from the afore mentioned project from a few years ago. Not quite up to my current standards but I like the energy in this one anyway.
This is obviously kind of an experiment...or in other words, it's a bit of a mess. [more inside]
Very hesitant to let anyone hear this one. [more inside]
I thought I'd try to write something more upbeat. I couldn't think of a vocal melody so I just filled it with different guitar parts.
just a rock song (instrumental). I played around a lot with some organs and synths but still guitar based overall...
Another day, another song. Rock, indie, alternative, etc... A bit of hit and miss.. A bit of an experimental, weird intro. I was inspired by someone I once heard trying to play the guitar with a mallet. Some keyboards and organ are thrown in underneath (probably to try to make up for the lack of verse vocals!). I Also tried to throw in a vocal idea on the chorus here (written below) [more inside]
