  1. Thanks for checking out my cover! Drop me a like on youtube if you enjoyed it! I'll be pumping out a lot more. Stay tuned =) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZ7-2zypoCg
  2. Hi folks Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Nits and crits welcome. I'm Not the Bad Guy Written and performed by Staypress V1 I'm sick of saying sorry for things I did not do I'm tired of building bridges so I can get to you V2 I feel like I've been branded a monster among men I think I'll build a time machine and put it right again. Ch I'll admit your jealousy didn't bring out the best in me But I'm not the bad guy i don't deny I lost my cool, being made to feel a fool But I'm not the bad guy V3 I'm tired of feeling guilty for things I should have done I'm sick of being sorry for fights I never won Ch Middle bit I'd be the first to admit I was wrong If you'd allow me to talk that long The thought of you was heavenly, reality was hell Who's the guilty party? You know damn well Ch to end
  3. "Hey, can you come play my party for free beer?!" "If you come play guitar for me for $50 this time there will be more gigs to follow!" "Do you have some unlicensed or royalty free music I can use for my video?" "I can pay you in (insert social media platform) more followers if you do this for me." Knowing one's value or worth is the best advice I could ever give anybody wanting to jump in this crazy music industry...OK, the end!! Whew, thank goodness you don't have to read anymore! Seems so simple, right? Monetarily speaking, knowing your worth can be an incredible advantage to your career, or not knowing what your "product's" value is can be a horrible disservice to you and your fellow colleagues. This is what I mean. What we do in the music industry whether it be a song writer, jingle composer, player, artist, manager, booking agent, etc. is entirely different than any corporate structure set in any other genre of business. There is no infrastructure to evaluate how much you should be making on a global scale. There isn't a chart on the internet to tell you how much you should be making. That certainly would make it a lot easier. From what I've learned, culture and the city you live in seem to set a standard. Granted I can only speak as an American understanding the evaluation process in music. Los Angles, New York, and Nashville are what I call the big 3. From there I would say the next tier cities could be an Austin, Texas or a New Orleans, Louisiana for example. But the big three usually set the trends in the largest commercialized music markets (Pop, Rock, and Country). They also have more opportunities in all areas of music as well. How much should I charge for my services? It all depends on your culture, city, and what will you gain out of it. In Nashville, a guitar player hired to play some songs have a pretty standard base rate of a local show getting paid $150 and if there is travel involved no less than $200. But I've excepted gigs for a lot less. Even $50! In corporate business suit and tie world they would ridicule you for taking a 75% cut. I don't blame them. Let that percentage sink in. I didn't know what I was doing was undermining a system that would devalue and under appreciate a player that would be well deserved of a base pay of $150. Integrity in the market place is a concept that , in monetary terms, people will know what to expect. Consistency if you will and it even sets a bar predicated to a system that can establish tiers. For example, do those local shows for $150 and when you have the street credit eventually you can make the jump up to $200, then $225, and then so on, and so on!!! Your culture may have something set in place. Maybe? Maybe not? Isn't it funny? Do you ever wonder if somebody slapped a sign on your back that says "will work for free" instead of "kick me!" Know your worth. Set a standard. Educate yourself from other musicians/writers/engineers/blah/blah/ bah. Let those that have walked that path mentor you. Help your community by establishing that your vocation as a creative is important to be worth given money. I had a coffee with a friend when I first started traveling to Nashville. I expressed that I didn't know my value or even when should I take a gig. I still use this rule to this day and I absolutely love it, and I think it applies here. After he mentioned base rates in Nashville he ended the subject by saying, "Two out of three ain't bad." 1. Is the money good? 2. Do you like the music? 3. Are they good people or are they fun to hang out with? "If you can say yes to at least two of those...two out of three ain't bad."
  4. Hi, my name is Mike. I was born and raised in New Jersey and I've always enjoyed song writing. Recently I've been writing country music songs and then I wrote my first rap song back in 2016 dedicated and inspired by my son who had some rough experiences in the early stages of his life. I consider myself to be a true story lyric writer so I base all my lyrics off my experiences or the others around me. I can't begin to say how thrilled I am to be able to have my songs produced.

  7. Hi this is my song 'I'm a crime to commit' Just want everyone to be honest as possible, is it good, bad or ugly. I've changed the lyrics slightly now they are: (Verse) Beautiful bitch, has got my back up against the wall, I'm a crime to commit, but it looks like you done them all. (Pre Chorus) Se--------------e me, see me walking away, then you're love--------ly, makes me wanna stay. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. Mo---------------------re, more, more, than I bargained for. (Verse) She got pi-er-cings, in all the right places, infectious lips, and that way she fakes it. (Pre Chorus) Lo--------------------------ve me, like its the only way, In--------------fect me, with your kiss. (Chorus) Mo---------------------re, more, more than you bargained for, Mo--------------------re, more than you bargained for. (verse) Dan-cing on the tables, she hypnotises me, Long red hair, right down to her knees. (Pre Chorus) Teach me, al the things you know, Infect me, love me until you go. (Chorus) Verse1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFdXhmeUtmI&feature=youtu.be

  9. Hi! This is a quick remix I made of one of my favourite verses by Childish Gambino. Thanks for having a look
  10. Hey everyone! I posted for my first time on here a week or so ago and wrote and recorded another song in between that time and now. I am just trying to find "my voice" or the genre where I can really shine as an artist and would appreciate feedback on this most recent song. (I know the mixing may not be 100%, I'm making all of this out of my college dorm room ) Lyrics below... My hands are tired from healing the pain, so far away but I’m still feeling the same. Its crazy how your words catch fire, its like you rule an empire. You got me questioning what happened to the love, to our one great nation under God. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. I wanna feel the rush, I wanna feel free, bask in the light of the American Dream And if you’re hanging on by a wire, hang on and climb higher You got me questioning what happened to this place, to a time of happiness and grace. Try to forget the hate when I sing this song. We can walk down this road, but we can’t do this alone. We gotta learn from our past and move on… To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days. We won’t go quiet into the night. We just keep moving moving moving moving onnnnnnn…. To the better days Come together, arm in arm, staying strong through the eye of the storm To the better days Spread a smile, walk the extra mile, on the road to the better days.

  12. Something different from "Rock Bernd": http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13540169 The song's lyrics: while the bathtub slowly is filling up she downs her pills with a glass of red wine she tests the water to make sure it's fine somewhere she'd read it must not be too hot resting her head on a bath pillow she'd brought she's all set for her bath - peaceful and quiet she reaches out for the razor blade knife as soon as she feels the numbness set in she's overcoming all pretence and disguise she's overcoming his deceptions and lies she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir she is fascinated by billowing clouds that soon begin col'ring the water bright red while contemplating what might lie ahead she's getting tired and dizzy at last she's overcoming all pretence and disguise she's overcoming his deceptions and lies and she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir she's hearing music wonderful, beautiful music now, that she's joining the angels' choir
  13. - Vocal approach 1 - - Vocal approach 2 - Crossroads /verse If with time I still remember you know it won’t be without regret because I know you have been trying hard and it makes me sad now I see it fall apart but there always seems there is nothing I can do to make you feel alright /verse With every dream we had now broken a love once strong has turned too plain yet something with her face makes me remember how it was but that was then and it doesn’t really matter anymore /chorus And all the promises we made we broke them all along the way but if only you were here I think I´d stay but all we brought together falls apart /verse Just like a cold winds quiet whisper like eerie chills and winter winds but spring will come again and it will soothe away the pain, those yesterdays just hoping that someday I'll find in truth to hope she’ll be alright. /verse (extended) And now the years are rolling by me they seem to glide away with ease Like thunder in a thunderstorm ,Like shadows on a shadows wall with every fight that starts a cry as If she ever cared for how I felt and always came with reasons, not complaints and never cared to listen, it’s not sad we should fall apart /chorus And all the promises we made we broke them all along the way but how I do how I do love you seems all we brought together falls apart
  14. First track for me here. I have no idea whether you are interested in classical music or not. This is a lively and joyful naturalistic painting of a scene from a pond in the forest where the goblins gather to perform their ritual. The tune was written in these surroundings together with my vivid fantasy helping me to put the notes together. I hope you enjoy it and for sure critics of any kind is welcome.
  15. Hey guys! This is a new song I wrote. It is a personal song about when I'm feeling happy/sad/angry - and then I feel nothing. I feel empty and everything loses it's meaning and I just want to give up. That's what the first verse is about. The other 3 verses are about what make me feel that way - friends/family, someone that always seems to ruin my happiness and my dreams that I never achieved. Here's the link: I know the music ain't great but I'll try get it right for my next song. Anyway I really hope you liked something about it, otherwise I'd love to hear any suggestions/opinions going forward Thanks, Anonymous9
  16. hi guys i wrote a song a while ago and i need feed back on it if anyone can help me with this or give me tips like what beat i should put it to or really what instrument should play it to that would help out. i have to warn you its alittle dark also its not done yet but this is what i have so far https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DyehIbNU9IFbqHsVhQ1sjiaD-Tnxku_roRihIfpi_bE/edit?usp=sharing
  17. Thanks for the critiques so far, guys! I'm gonna temporarily close this thread while I work on the vocal melodies. I'll be back, once I have some new developments to share with you all. Thanks, Ken This is a rough track idea I started working on, today. I was looking to make a vocal melody for a lyric but one thing led to another and I somehow ended up with a track idea. It doesn't have a bridge right now but so far there's a verse/pre-chorus/chorus/verse/pre-chorus/chorus section. I would like to know whether it sounds too dated, to you? Any and all critique, please. Thanks! Ken
  18. Hello guys, I'm at the beginning with covers and recordings, and becouse this is my first recorded cover posted on internet, i would like to hear your opinions, critics and thoughts about my performance, improvisation and the quality of recording (mostly the audio). Thank you so much for your time, have a great day!
  19. Garage (or rather home-office) Rock. I like whatever I do, but that's no reason not to learn a thing or two ;-) http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13535650 After discussions on another board I already altered the mix (lowered the guitar tracks so vocals and drums - and bass - would be more present). Two say, the song is too 'staccato' all through. Hm. I had already tried to smoothen that out in the bridge by means of the ride cymbal so as to get more variety. For people who only are interested in lyrics: trade real life for chat and tweets google to find doubtful truth fake news, goo that sounds so sweet all designed to spoil your youth all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind swap real friends for online nicks friendships that ain't worth a dime panting after online chicks all you're doin' is waste your time all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind you don't know how fresh grass smells what the songs of pied birds tell [in the 'official' lyrics I'll change that to "blackbirds"] you don't know how kisses feel you can't tell fake from real all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind animated, coloured ads wrap around your clouded mind chasing after short-lived fads you tread on a ground that's mined all for free here value undefined all for nothing keep that in your mind
  20. Hi, I'm looking to get some real feedback on this video, it's brand new and I wanted see what you think. Please have a look and let me know your thoughts!!! Thank you so much!
  21. Ok, so I finally got a recording finished on this. It's another sketch but I tried to add some flavor of what I hear as the direction of the song Down To The River Hammered in the coals of a fire lost Shot from the age of Homeric lust The tip of love's arrow, well it pierced my lung But it missed my heart, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Love is an owl over fields of prey I was caught while dawn was threatening Clawing for the heart of it's victory won Well love left hungry, I had none, it went Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home I pulled her close when the night was young When still she needed to know I was strong But her moon fell over and her sky went numb When she reached for my heart, found I had none Down to the river waters keep Down to the river where it's black and deep Down to the river where it's too damn cold to come home Come home
  22. check out cupids mixtape here https://soundcloud.com/luong-hau-961572001/sets/cupids-mixtape and tell me what you think of it.
  23. One of my all time favourite songwriting collaborations is that of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook - the founding members of UK band Squeeze. All the Squeeze hits were co-written by the pair - Chris writing the lyrics first and then Glenn composing the music. Chris has compared the moment he first hears Glenn's compositions as like opening his Christmas presents. I met Glenn Tilbrook last year and shook his hand which was a dream come true for me I'd be interested to know about other Songstuff members' all time favourites........and have you ever met them?
  24. Lyrics to a song from my first, and only, album. What do you think? Thanks Before you know its gone Through the darkness of the night, I could see back to the start of you and me, Before it all begun, Through the silence of your voice, I remember good and worst we left behind, Our time has slipped away, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, In the softness of your skin, I can almost feel you touching me again, The way you made me feel, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, Now we have taken our last breath, And I know that we won't last much longer now, You left me all alone, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, Living now, don't think about tomorrow, Before you know it's gone, https://leoandthedude.bandcamp.com/track/before-you-know
  25. Hi folks Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Nits and crits welcome. OverthinkingWritten and performed by Staypress V1I've had some thoughts about overthinkingIt'll get you in the endTrying my best to stay in the momentBut my brain won't comprehend V2I've had my doubts about relative theoriesThe laws of physics are your friendUnderstanding the space time continuumBut my brain can't comprehend ChDid you ever stop to think and forget to start again?Did you ever think to stop and disengage your brain? V3I'm paranoid my lack of meditationPracticed as a daily choreWill turn my conscious into vegetationI'm not thinking anymore ChDid you ever stop to think and forget to start again?Did you ever think to stop and disengage your brain? Middle bitGive your mind a restBe at your bestThought can be a dangerous thingGet some zenRemind me thenI have to stop overthinking ChDid you ever stop to think and forget to start again?Did you ever think to stop and disengage your brain?to endThe late, great Gene Wilder
