Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

I really only play guitar in front of people. I could probably fake bass if absolutely needed (and a bass showed up) but we all know what a guitarist who tries to play bass sounds like...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Curds & Chords (Madison WI US 8/2-8/3)

We are a definite. I and my wife will be there but only I'll be performing. Planning a solo acoustic set but I admit the idea of bringing an electric and amp and rocking a bit sounds enticing if it would work out. Sounds like too much trouble, though.

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

I agree that both of the final songs had a lot going for them.

Congratz Vowl Sounds on the win.

Re: Something Rotten in Songland

I watched an episode last night (my wife had it recorded.) And it made me feel both uneasy and interested at the same time. It was the John Legend episode. All in all it was cool to see. If nothing else, hearing the song as originally written and then hearing the end result was an interesting proces...

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

I've improved my vocal phrasing thanks mainly to Ryan's critiques in the Two Jerks review cast. I still dash one out, sometimes and it isn't something I hear as a negative as much as I should. But I definitely pay more attention to it now than I ever did before. (So, thank you, Ryan.) I've been very...

Pigfarmer Jr I like the heavy guitar, though when the full arrangement kicks in it seems to get a lot thinner. I really don't know why you have the snare in stereo. I like the hat break a lot, though I wish it dropped into something more impactful. I guess I like the effect of going up in half step...

How do you feel about this song now and has it changed from the time you submitted it?

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

For a nur ein type of competition, the idea of cumulative voting is appealing, but maybe more in the idea than in practice (possibly.)

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

I think there is a difference in a song with one low ranking and the rest very high vs a song with scattered rankings or multiple high and low rankings. And honestly, the most intriguing songs are the ones that have high and low scores. I wonder how many songs I truly love that friends have hated (a...

Dang, Leaf. Your "quite loose, busy week" reviews are great. Thanks much for doing them. re: Evil Grin - We know it's not our best work. Most of the song wasn't in my range/wheel house vocally and I have a ton of other excuses. But suffice it to say I agree with most of what you said. Thanks for giv...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Cyberonica - I like the sound of this song and while it does feel a bit long it definitely doesn't feel as long as it is. Evil Grin - I'm an atheist. Still, I think I can agree with the message in this song. I disagree with whoever said that we can't make change on a personal level. In fact, I beli...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

Ranked voting by board members is a great idea. How it would be weighted with a public vote or implemented code wise are all things I have a great amount of ignorance about.

Re: Vocal level automation

I bought it. Tried it a couple of times. Gave up and use mainly compression and mild automation. I actually found a short cut (read that as a way of doing it wrong) that I'll do on occasion. I'll sometimes just snip a small section of a track and reduce the volume for that word/phrase/section and th...
