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...

Re: What would you ask a songwriter about a song?

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...

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

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: Let yours fly (Freak Flag prefight)

Forgot to post that I sent in a song earlier today. Late but not as late as right now. I was gonna post something about the quality of the song and how much time I spent on it, but I'm so confused by all the pet peeves in this place that I don't know what to say and how to say it. #throwback #nottha...

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...

Re: Songland = the place you give your songs away

Either they made a mistake and "fixed" it or they got called out and realized their error. (I actually think their law dept was overzealous and it was never their intention, but who knows?) Updated contract is mentioned in this article: https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/6963260/adam-levine...

Songland = the place you give your songs away

I posted this on facebook and just realized that I'm not friends with (m)any of the cool kids 'round here. Apparently if you submit a song to the new t.v. show "songland" you lose all rights to it (and this is the even more ludicrous than usual part) even if they don't use it in the show. https://ww...

Re: Do we have a chance? (Hope Against Hope prefight)

I added another cover art entry. For those who are interested (maybe someone?) it references Osip Mandelstam. His wife wrote a book "Hope against Hope" about him and his death. (Actually two books, but....) The easily found and read wiki page is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osip_Mandelstam
