  1. So this is a song I wrote that has a more "Future Bass" vibe to it but still is hopefully catchy. Would love to hear what you think! Stars, we’re the stars in the sky above, we make a constellation of love. And no matter where we’re going, we’re glowing. Our names up on the marquis, we live our life on a tv screen. We’re just living like stars We’re living like stars. Oh we’re just living like stars. Stars, our songs are playing on the radio There’s cameras flashing wherever we go. Now that we’re here we’re gonna run this show, Yeah we’re stars so we better glow. Our names up on the marquis, we live our life on a tv screen. We’re just living like stars We’re living like stars. Oh we’re just living like stars. The universe is full of darkness, imagine if the world was starless. No way to see the beauty that surrounds us. Everything’s gonna be alright cause the stars will bring the light. We’re just living like stars. We’re living like stars. Stars, we dance, in the dark of the night We laugh and we love and we doing alright Oh we’re just living like stars.

  4. woah so I'm new here

    Heyo, I'm Lola, I live in Australia and I am 16. So, I just joined here ( well duh ) and I think music is pretty groovy? I'm not sure what to say, WARNING, I may ramble a tad I really like Twenty One Pilots, Frank Iero, Rise Against, MILK TEETH, Cat Empire and, really I could go one for quite some time. I play electric bass, and am teaching myself piano and that's going quite well. I also write lyrics, which are really shitty at the moment but that's why I've joined here, to improve them. I want to make music after I finish school and I want my music to help people, even if it touches just one person and helps them overcome whatever it is they're going through I feel as if that would be a success to me. Feel free to shoot me a message!
  5. Finger Or Pick?

    I usually finger it to suit my sound, but in some situations I find picks to be useful. What are your thoughts?
  6. Do You Ever Feel Like Quitting?

    I gave up music for the entire year when my first son was born. I was playing drums in a jazz quartet, and it got to feel like clocking in each Saturday, same venue, same songs, same people, same pay. When I took a paternity leave, I realized I didn't miss gigging, so I quit the band and stopped playing all of my other instruments and only wrote one song that year. My self-identity had been so tied up in being a musician that I needed to know if I could handle life as non-musician. I have to say, it was a great year; I learned to cook, went on a 30 day juice fast, became a yellow belt in Kali/Escrima in under 6 months, and I took up archery lessons. by the time my son turned one, I got the itch to pick up my bass again and decided to take my playing to a new level and I immediately started looking for work that would stretch my comfort level a bit. My first audition was terrible. I was nervous, the band was lifeless and distant as the moon and, although they said I made the cut to the second round of auditions, I never got a call back. Right away that nagging voice in the back of my head started screaming, "give up, you're not good enough, you're parents were right, you should have gotten a job with your sister at her office, you're not in your twenties, you'll never make it as a musician." Even though I wanted to quit, I decided to reply to one more ad for a trio looking for a bassist. A week later I got a call, and unlike the previous band leader, our personalities clicked. Luckily, the band played some of the songs I had already learned for my previous audition so I felt confident. We got together and "jammed" (which is really just an audition but psychologically it takes the pressure off) and I got hired in two of the band leaders bands out of the one jam/audition. The catch was, I had to learn roughly 80 songs in a month (which I did with a similar systematic approach that got me to become a yellow belt in such a short period of time). This isn't the first time in my life where I had to keep going even though I wanted to quit? Does anybody else struggle with that? Do you ever tell yourself things like, " I have been playing for years, but I still can't do (skill/technique/song)?
  7. Hi! I'm looking for a bassist to record a bassline for a song of mine. It's an energic ballad, kind of rock band type, easy but uses many chords. I have the structure of the song made in Band-in-a-box to use as backing track while recording, and the drums pattern alone too, if you prefer recording it with that. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
  8. Hi Songstuff My friend and I have been writing songs over the past year and have decided to now step out and start gigging and find a bass player. Thing is every person we have messaged has not replied. Even if they message us first saying hey send us some links. Its frustrating because we don't know what we are doing wrong and no one will tell us! Here's the songs. Two acoustic, two made up on garageband. They are a work in progress but we want a potential bass player to listen and see where they are able to fit in and then create some demo's. We have 8 in total but here are the first half. https://soundcloud.com/thebandcalledthe Could someone please give it to us straight?
  9. Since some of us have to lay down all the parts for our own songs, I thought I'd share my latest video lesson. hope this helps some of you guitarist-turned bassists. Quite a few of my students are over 50, and their hands have taken some abuse over the years or just aren’t as nimble as they were when they were younger. Some of them aspire to play some dexterity-driven pieces, like Chet Atkin’s “Mister Sandman” and “Maybelle” or even some simpler finger style pieces like The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence” and “Blackbird.” These songs have a lot of quick chord changes, some of which require some stamina to play barre chords. Others want to switch from playing guitar to learning the bass, but they lack the hand strength. This exercise has helped my students with small, chubby, and weak hands build hand strength, speed, and stamina:

  11. Ibanez Sabre And Ibanez Bass

    From the album Guitars

    My Ibanez Sabre, which backs up my Jackson Soloist, and my Ibanez bass. The Sabre is a $600 guitar, but I consider both of these to be straight up journeyman, meat and potatoes guitars.
  12. Introducing Glenn Allen

    Hi, full disclosure, I dropped out of Berklee College of Music after 3 semesters. I couldn't afford it. I play guitar, bass, piano, drums, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, and saxophones. I worked as sound tech and a recording engineer. Okay, fuller disclosure, I am mediocre at banjo, but I do play the other instruments professionally. I've spent the last ten years learning how learning works, digging for songwriting and performance insights, and performing, recording, and teaching what I've discovered.
  13. A Flight Of Fancy

    Sometimes you alight on a phrase and a song takes to the air...breathless https://soundcloud.com/sciencebase/flights-of-fancy Flights of Fancy A flight of fancy, just spread your wings Takes you on the way to better things The working day, working away It's not easy, back-breaking, low pay A flight of fancy, can change your life Rue the higher plain, more play, less strife Out of your comfort zone, and into the blue A chance you have to take, you know what to do A flight of fancy, just take your time Reach for the skies again, it's a slower climb A million migrant flyers, since times of old Flying the distance, just to escape the cold In life many questions, and flight holds the clue Take to the skies again, to find out what is true I capture the answer, but didn't think it through In flight there are questions, and an ending of blue A million migrant flyers, take epochs of old Flying the distance, just to escape the crushing cold A flight of fancy, just spread your wings Takes you on the way, to better things

  15. Hi guys, I'm a pretty new member and this is my band/project's new demo.

  18. Hi There Everyone! I'm new here, my name is George. I was signed with Sony Indonesia and was planning to record / produce an album of 10 classical crossover songs. Arrangements, lyrics and actual composition were all by me. I had 2 concerts set up: one to attract sponsors, and the other an album debut. In March, 2013, I performed in my sponsorship concert, and started recording for the album which was set to launch in May, 2013, but I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer with severe metastasis. I had to abandon my album and my deal and am now am in Canada, undergoing treatment. However, if it all goes well, I'll be back to my music by Christmas . I have recordings of the live performance of TWO songs on YouTube and would love it if I ACTUALLY got some feedback from North American audiences. The first one: "How can you say our time has come?" is at : The second one: "Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue" is at: Pardon the bad sound quality. We didn't think it was necessary to actually record the sponsorship concert professionally, since we had the album and debut concert planned, but it's really all that I have of my work during my time in Indonesia. My music emphasizes "organic"-ness. Everything in the music is arranged and actually played out on an instrument: the quartet section, the guitar, the bass, the drums, back-up vocals, choir vocals, etc. Feel free to PM or e-mail me!

  20. Source Audio Hot Hand Wah.

    Hey, Im a bass/Keyboard player in my band. Im thinking about buying a new pedal to go with my bass, and I found something that looks insane. Its called the hot hand wah, from source audio. check out the website if you want to here http://www.sourceaudio.net/products/hothand/wah.php What the product apparently does, is convert movement from your hand (through a bluetooth ring) into the pedal, therefor producing a wide range of modulation. This product really caught my attention, and I was wondering if anybody has ever used one of these? If so, I would love it if you shared your opinion of the product before I go and spend $150 on this. -Thanks, Harrison.
