Post your FIRST POST here to introduce yourself, and afterwards to welcome new members.
Strictly NO MUSIC LINKS, OR LYRICS. The "Introduce Yourself" board is about YOU. Don't worry... you can let us hear works in progress on the critique boards, and finished work in the Musician's Lounge and the Showcase Board.
Includes lyrics, instrumentals, full songs, recording, production, and cover critique for music creation and other creative arts critique such as poetry, artist / band artwork and photography, and music video production critique.
This first installment of the my "Songwriting 101" channel playlist includes a 5 1/2 minute medley of original song introductions. Installment #2 ("The Art of the Ending") is already in the works!
That definitely includes Songstuff membership. If anyone interested in contributing to the playlist, shoot me a PM or contact me via YouTube.
Hi all... apologies if I haven't responded to any of your comments. I have posted on a couple of topics, but haven't done anything about my own stuff.
Just to say, I lost my dad last week. It was unexpected and a bit of a shock and I thought I would deal better by taking myself away from my music (as I normally write sad, depressing music), but in reality, I feel like I needed to express myself and work through this with my music.
I will respond to any comments you have given me, but bear with me as I work my way through them.
Our band Jerkatorium is back with yet another song for a contest. We survived to the final round of SpinTunes #13 where 28 competitors have been whittled down to just four. Here is the challenge for the final round: BETTER TOGETHER: Write two songs that can stand on their own. Play them separately. Then play them simultaneously as a single harmonious piece. Also, include some mention of or allusion to an eclipse.
This is what is known in musical theater as "Broadway Counterpoint". If you've ever listened to the music from The Music Man you've heard an example of this. I hope folks enjoy our attempt at this tricky style!
