  1. Cello lover

    Hello everyone! I am new to this forum. Was wondering how many Cello musicians are in here? I don' play it myself but would really love to. Perhaps I found someone who would want to write covers with me?
  2. Hi all, Knocked this together this morning after feeling reflective. Open to someone adding music and vocals. Don't really have a melody in mind so it's a blank canvas for a willing participant - feel free to reword the expletive! When Did I Grow Up? Words by Darren Thomas Copyright 2017 V1 Driving too fast The musics too loud Don’t like cities cos I can't stand crowds A romantic dinner Instead of a rowdy bar I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? V2 Cultured cities Instead of days of booze Country walks cos I love the views Time with you Instead of girls in cars I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? Bridge Time passes so fast when you want it slow I know so much that I don't wanna know I long for that ancient sweet innocence When life was fun without consequence V3 A romantic dinner Instead of a rowdy bar Time with you Instead of girls in cars I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up? I'm not that old but I've come so far When the f*ck did I grow up?
  3. Ok, so, yesterday I deleted this original thread by mistake! Duh! So I've reposted so that the awesome Daveit aka dislocatedlove can carry on working on it if he wants (or anyone else who wants to) Im sooooo sorry for those of you who replied really positively - hopefully the site guys can recover the original thread - I put in a support request so hopefully it will get sorted. I'll Always Be Your Dad (C) Darren Thomas 2017 I was sitting in my local bar sipping a cold beer Brooding alone my thoughts were unclear When in came a young girl out of the cold She sat down beside me and made me feel old ‘Hey mister do you wanna buy me a beer? I'm single and lonely and in need of some cheer’ I looked at her blonde hair and her sparkling blue eyes And I thought for a second before I replied ‘Does your mama or daddy know that you're here? You drinking with strangers would fill them with fear Because I have a daughter about the same age as you And if this is what she was doing I know what I'd do’ I would call her and say I was sorry And tell her that I'll always be her dad She'd know that I always would be there If ever she was lonely and sad Well she sat there with tears filling those beautiful blue eyes And I handed her a napkin as she started to cry I got us some water and she nodded and smiled And I sat there and watched her as she remembered my lines Then she got up and hugged me and she left the bar I smiled at my reflection and I walked out to my car I sat in my car thinking before I started off on my way I dialled a number as I knew just what to say: I called you to say I was sorry And tell you that I'll always be your dad So you know that I always would be there If ever you were lonely and sad As I'm driving down the highway with tears in my eyes I see a lone hitchhiker looking for a ride She opens the door I see familiar blue eyes She sits down beside me and I hear these lines: ‘Hey mister do you wanna drive me all the way home My daddy is waiting and he's all alone It's been years since I saw him, at least 2 or 3 And I'll always remember those words you said to me’ So I'll see him and say that I’m sorry And tell him that he’ll always be my dad I know that he’ll always be there If ever I am lonely and sad

  6. New Kid on the Block

    Hey everyone, looking forward to hearing some great music!
  7. Hello Songstuff Community, I am Palm Baker, and I am a Toronto based music producer, studio owner, and recording artist. My journey as a musician started with a cheap guitar at a young age. I have since learnt guitar, along with piano and a handful of classical brass instruments. Aside from being a multi-instrumentalist, I am also a studio engineer. Building my first studio four years back in the basement of a London, ON. apartment, I began working with friends and close networks to figure out the ropes. I have since worked with artists and producers across Canada, the United States, and even one team of EDM producers and rappers from Sweden. As an artist I have performed across venues in Toronto, ON. Some of these venues include The Opera House, Revival Bar, & The Mod Club. To organize my live set I use the Roland DJ 808 where I can control my studio produced tracks along with my vocals mic-ed through a vocal processor that lets me control Volume, EQ, Pitch, and Reverb. Here at Songstuff I hope to develop networks and build my company, while sharing feedback and my music. Looking forward to what this community has to offer. All the best, Baker
  8. Introducing Jesse James Just-Costa

    Hey guys! My name is Jesse James. I'm a musician living in Montreal. Glad to be on this forum as I live for and love music and the people that surround themselves with it!
  9. 1. Do you sing, play an instrument or instruments? I play my voice, guitar, sometimes violin, and synth. k h ō r h å j is the name of my band. 2. Are you in a band or bands? Always. 3. Do you write songs? I write lyrics, compose music, and perform everything I write. 4. Do you record your music? I do. My bedroom is my studio. I use Ableton Live 9 Suite mostly. 5. What other roles do you perform in the music business? Currently I produce, distribute, promote and manage my own music. I also make my own music videos/ images. I managed an Asia tour for a fellow musician once. And I was a general manager/ international contactsperson for a big music festival/conference last year. I'd prefer to focus on making my own music for the time being, though. 6. Are you a tech head? Definitely yes. Technology is what makes us human, and so is music. Put the two together and... M A G I C. 7. What country do you live in? South Korea at the moment. But I move around a lot. 8. What are your ambitions? To leave behind something bigger than my poorly formed physical body. 9. Do you draw/paint/write stories/computer art/dance or other creative pursuit? I do. I am a 'multimedia artist', whatever that means. I write and I work with visual media as well. 10. What would you like to get out of Songstuff? I'd love to meet people that I can respect musically, people that are passionate about music and what they put into the music. Maybe a collaborator or two, who knows. Here's a music video I made for my recently released single: And links to my music/ websites etc., that might interest you: http://khorhaj.bandcamp.com/ http://khorhaj.tumblr.com/ http://twitter.com/khorhaj/ http://facebook.com/khorhaj http://soundcloud.com/khorhaj Hope you enjoy it! Looking forward to getting to know all you wonderful people. And have a lovely day everybody.
  10. People sometimes know me for years, before finding out that I'm an amateur singer/songwriter. It's not that I'm particularly secretive about it. It's just not something that fits easily into day-to-day conversation. Occasionally, if a discussion is already headed in a musical or technical direction, I'll bring it up. Experience has taught me though, not to be surprised if the news draws a strange or uncomfortable reaction. I've come to believe that many folks are simply thrown a bit off-balance by my hobby. Unless they happen to know someone else who writes, I guess they're a little unsure about how to process the news. A few years back, I made a 20+ year acquaintance aware of my musical pastime. Her reaction was the kind I always hope to get...one of seemingly genuine interest & curiosity. Anyway, as a result of our conversation, I left her a computer burn CD containing some of my better-quality demos. I ran into her again a few weeks later...and she made a point of telling me how much she enjoyed it. She seemed amazed & impressed by the fact that one person could do everything she'd heard on the recordings. Then she laughed & said that her husband had a slightly different reaction. He was absolutely certain that I was being less than truthful with her! Naturally, I couldn't just leave it at that. My curiosity was killing me! I don't want to get too far ahead of myself here, but basically, it turned out that he was laboring under a life-long musical misconception......hence the title of this article. As we continued talking, I discovered a little more about her husband's reasoning. Basically, it boiled down to this: - He knew nothing about the concept of multi-track recording - He was under the impression that all recordings resulted from everyone involved (musicians, singers, etc.) gathering together in a recording studio, performing the song similar to the way they would do it live...and recording that performance. The bottom line was this....he wasn't questioning my personal integrity. He simply believed it was impossible for me to do what I had claimed! The thing is though, he was very mistaken! Afterward, I was thinking to myself...."here's a reasonably well educated man, in his mid-50s, who's been an avid fan of music throughout his life, but has absolutely no idea of how it all works! Gee! I wonder how many other folks are walking around thinking something similar?" At the very least, that might help explain some of those strange & uncomfortable reactions I mentioned earlier. So here's my take-away from this experience: 1) We songwriter/musicians tend to assume a lot. Much of the time, we take for granted that the general public has some understanding of how our musical world functions. Many times, they don't! 2) For any non-musicians reading this article, recording is generally not done in the way this gentleman envisioned. For many years, commercial recording has been achieved through the use of multi-track technology. Even though multi-tracking has evolved dramatically & continues to do so, the concept itself is not new. As a matter of fact, The Beatles utilized multi-track recording! That should give you some idea of how long it's been in existence. Basically, the technology allows for the recording of different sounds, onto different tracks. Typically, each instrument and vocal part is recorded to a separate track. This allows for separate control of each part. It also allows the parts to be recorded one-at-a-time, if desired. A musician or singer has the ability to listen to the previously recorded parts, while playing or singing along with them and recording their new part onto an unused track....all by itself. Pretty cool, huh? Most commercial recordings are not the result of everyone playing & singing in the studio together. The version that becomes available for public consumption is generally the result of many, many individual tracks, which are blended (mixed) together into one pair of stereo tracks. Sometimes, 100 or more individual tracks go into the making of that final stereo recording that you hear. As you might guess, there's much more to it than what I've briefly described here. But hopefully, this serves to give you a basic understanding of the process. That's about it for this time. With any luck, if you're a musician & were already familiar with most of this, you found it amusing food-for-thought. If you're not a musician and much of this was new to you, I hope you found it informative. Thanks...and as always, your feedback is welcome & appreciated!

  11. Express Yourself as a Musician

    Expression is considered to be at the pinnacle of qualities for any artist let alone a musician. Regardless of the genre, instrument or language, every musician tries to express a certain story, concept or thought process in the music he/she creates. For a guitarist, to be able to carve the right chord backing or improvise a solo befitting a song is very very important. Regardless of how many scales you know or how advanced of a guitar player you are, to be expressive is its own cup of tea. This article gives you insight as to how you can become a more expressive guitar player, though the idea applies to any instrument. http://www.songstuff.com/guitar/article/express_yourself/ Be sure to share and like the article if you find it useful.

  13. Greetings fellow musicians, This was my first "epic" written and first recorded in 1999, This is the 3rd recording since now that I have access to modern recording techniques. The natural string arrangements took days to piece together but is superior to the original keyboards. Also the first track to feature my new Agile Interceptor 828 Pro.
  14. Hi. As the topic stated, my name is Matt. My full name is Matthew Miramontes and I am a lover of music. I have been actively writing music for the past 5 years and singing for the past 3. My style is...difficult to describe. I have tons of influences ranging from hard rock to pop. My hopes are to come here and find a scene where my music and I belong. I write hard rock as well as pop songs. I made the shift to hard rock just recently with my latest release. I am tired of asking my friends and family for feedback when they have no true appreciation for what I do. I really want to make new friends and to join new circles where my music will actually be heard! If you all will have me, I'd like to stay! (I know I write dramatically, it's just how I am! )
  15. Hi all. I am new to the forums and wanted to share my work with you all! This is the first track on an upcoming album I am calling: "Dehumanize." This is my third album ever written and my first hard rock album. The others were dark synthpop. Please tell me what you think!
  16. New Here! :d

    Hey peeps! I'm new here and I'm sure like most people on here I LOVE music with a severe, burning passion! I play the violin and guitar, violin for about 9 or so years now, and guitar for about 1 year. I love most types of music (not a big country fan but I do have my fair share of country songs on my zune!) I hope to one day break into the business and show the world that the music business doesn't have to be as corrupt as some people make it out to be! I want to get some feedback on my lyrics and maybe my songs too once I decide to record them lol, but yeah, wanna know anything else about me that isn't music related feel free to message/comment me!

  18. I’m Will and I’m a singer/songwriter. I’ve been writing lyrics for a few years now and been writing the music with them for about 3 years now. I’m currently in school to be an audio engineer so I can learn the science on the other side of the glass, but still love the gift/passion for writing. I’m not only looking for “evaluation†of my songs, but for collaboration for future songs to co-write. I’ve never co-written anything before and would gladly welcome the privilege and opportunity. I'm also currently looking specifically for female vocalists who would like to be primary or backup vocals for some of my material to give some flavor to them. I have a whole portfolio of music and welcome the prospect of selling my material as well.

I'm not really sure how to describe my music, besides calling it acoustic, because all I ever rerally use is an acoustic guitar. Well, I guess I will post my soundcloud URL and you all can tell me what you think, and spew your brilliant advice at me!
