Are there any rules governing the creation and subsequent submission of a death metal song for Song Fight!? I just would like to know where I stand. :wink:

I've begun work on a pretty ambitious tune for this fight. Hopefully it will all turn out as awesome as the first two minutes, because so far it's shaping up to be pretty fantastic.

I had some spare time the other night and bashed out something. I think you'll agree that the Stylophone (bday present) is both the best and worst part of the song.

I've got a song written. If I can record it, it should be pretty, pretty nice.

I fully aknowledge the Rolf as the ordained king of the Stylophone and wouldn't even pretend to say I'm half as good.

I agree with you 100%. I decided to plow in despite the fact that I can barely work GarageBand (or a guitar, for that matter).

I've got a scratch vocal & guitar track down for Fog, and I'm hoping I have enough time to put the whole thing together. I have to log a lot of hours at my day job - which I promise I'm not quitting anytime soon!- over the weekend. I want to get it done because it's a real departure from the riffy stuff I've submited so far.

As usual, start with a really great idea and high ambitions...

then I start to record with my crappy-ass equipment and it comes out junk.

Ah well... a little final mixing and it'll be in...

I hate working on guitar tone. I also suck at it.

However, I won't let my shitty tone stand in the way of me turning this tune in. I just hope I can come up with something that works before the deadline, cause I'm pretty sure my song is awesome, at least in some ways.
