  1. this is a page with all the songs i've done for http://www.songfight.org . if you don't know about it, it's a site that gives a few song titles a week to choose from, and you have a week to write, record, and submit a song based on one of these titles. i submitted ten songs, seven of them in seven consecutive weeks. i'm pretty happy with most of them, though they're obviously a little rough around the edges. the fan favorite seems to be 'driving'.

      What are you using to record these? I'd like to give you some advice.


      not what i use now. these are old, and were recorded within a week each anyway. i'm aware of the imperfections. but what did you think of the songs?

      OK, I have a few things:

      1) I like your experimental side. If you could get more discipline into your compositions, then you can make these songs sound really great.

      2) That guitar needs to be EQ'd differently. Hey, I'm all for the garage sound, but even that needs to be tweaked. Nowadays guitar parts are played at least 8 times in a row(can't say I agree with this, but meh), so they sound smoother. That is, you're recording yourself doing the same guitar part 8 times. Anyway, after that you should have a fuller sound-- and with some hard panning you can make that fuzzbox sound professional.

      3) You have a live kit? Or are those sampled? Either way, they sound all right the way they are. Maybe they can use some extra mid/bass so the kick drum comes out more. I did notice some extra "room effect" that you can easily get rid of by moving the mics closer to the heads.

      4) Um, the thing I told you to do with the guitars can also apply to your vocals. Especially on the odd chance that you're not screaming.

      So... yeah. Let me know what you think. You haven't exactly explained where your music has gone since these, so there's a slim possibility that I'm talking out of my ass.

      Ugh, I hate that technique so much. Its almost as bad as the modern day production technique of compressing everythign and amping it up. OMG I ROX HARDD!

      O'course I'm not a fan of conventional music anyway, so what do I know?
