Maybe you should filter it on short words? I'm getting a lot of one-letter lyric lines, like "g" or "Y".
That would be nice. Maybe someday I'll feel motivated to make it fancier. For now, just put some whiteout over those where you see them.

Re: A lyric generator

Weird. Who would've thought there's more than 200,000 characters of Beyonce lyrics.

Well, anyway, I just tweaked it so it starts from a random point somewhere in the lyric file (Which has 323,000,000 characters in it). You shouldn't get many Beyonce things now.

A lyric generator

http://johnorama.com/lyricize/ There’s a giant file of lyrics in Kaggle. There’s a PHP Markov chain generator. I hacked them together. Feel free to make your own better one, just let me use it when you do. :) This gizmo uses the first 200,000 characters of the lyrics file, because that generates ok ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

It's been five years since DC, maybe a five year anniversary show in DC would be cool? JB should have lots of venue connections by now since his punk trio has been gigging a lot, right JB? ;) I think we could put shows together in DC for sure, but it would have to be over like 3 nights and it would...

Re: Very minor link (non) issue

I had them linked a particular way because ppl on the boards asked for it. But I can no longer remember what that way was. So put them however you want them. :)

Re: Women's March on Washington

On 1/19/2019 the Women's March happens again.

If you want to come to DC for this, let me know.

You can march with us, if you'd like to, and I'll help you find some place to stay.

Re: WTF Are The Modes?!

I have tried the whole "it's just an X scale but starting on note Y" thing. That has really not sunk into my mind. I think I am going try instead the path of "It's a major scale but with a flat/sharp X and a flat/sharp Y etc." :/ In my experience, you just have to memorize them. For singing it's fi...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

In school we learned modes in terms of the solfeggio syllables. That's "do re mi fa sol la ti do". Each syllable has a relationship to the next. For example, between do and re is a whole step and between mi and fa is a half step. (ti and do are a half step apart). If you start on middle C, you can s...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Melodyne recently made using it in Logic a LOT easier. It's still a tad awkward (it doesn't just work, you have to push a button to make all the notes for a track appear in its interface). But it's a lot better than previously-- you had to basically let Melodyne copy sections of tracks to work on th...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I don't use the pitch correction plugin, though. It doesn't work well unless I sing everything really flat with no inflection. Otherwise it's waaaaay too flippy. Flexpitch and Melodyne are different, and let you tweak individual notes. I'll also use them to line up two tracks more perfectly, to get ...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

In addition to Logic's flex pitch tool, I have a copy of Melodyne, which is the gold standard for this kind of thing. It also works well. A good song is a good song, even if you modify the performance in post. It depends on what your appetite for authenticity is, measured against the skill of the mi...
