Yo. Enjoy awesome video of me not singing good or playing well at all. It's so funny, you should rate it high.

I try, I could probably sing better if I got a coach or something. I just said all that stuff cause I messed up a lot. Lol a lot of things went wrong.

It's a pretty hard song to play and sing too.

EDIT: *Reads over Blood Raven's post, notices Hm* Hmm, never heard of the H chord before lol. Lol I tease you. Also the way in his post may work for the verses but not there others I don't think. r at least they don't sound right to me.



Um, in chords it is: (Look at bottom for finger positions, some of the names I made up cause idk what they are called.)


Verse
A, E, F#m thing, Bm, A, E

Chorus
F#m, F1/2, Em, F#, A(then quick change to), Bm, E

Bridge
C, B1/2m, Am, F#/Bm, G1/2, F#/Bm, Em



Chord finger positions.

-(A)(E)(F#m)(Bm)(F1/2)(F#)(C)(B1/2m)(Am)(F#/Bm)(G1/2)(Em)
e-0--0--2----2-----x---2---0----x-----0----x-------0-----0-
b-2--0--2----3-----x---2---1----3-----1----3-------0-----0-

Hey both sound pretty good man, I like the storm one quite a bit. Makes me want to put some of my original stuff on youtube, but I need to do more new stuff. Lately I just make beats, it's been a time since I have compiled them into songs. Lost a few real good mixdowns from transition to this laptop from my dad's comp. Anyway man, post some more, good stuff!

It started as a folky picking song I did on the guitar, but by the time I got it into FL, i turned into more of a techno-y song.


http://www.filefront.com/user/duncepoo I have this and other songs uploaded here. Two that aren't on youtube are Journey Through Time and Sea of Ruined Dreams. They aren't as great as the youtube ones.

I can tell you're really good at FL. I'm trying to work on songs involving synths (lead and acid), but I fail horribly.

It's a lot easier when you know how to play a real instrument. And it takes practice,

Remembering You (My 100th FL song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCUdBGrgwkg

100 songs(not counting the 19-30 I lost in 2007), I have been doing this for a while, and most of my 2008 and 2007 ones are super embarrassing, but very few were neat so:

Sometime soon, if I feel like it, I am going to start uploading some of my older ok songs. They won't be as good as my newer ones, but I want to show them off and stuff. I'll include the date they were made in the video's title.

Two of the synics don't sound well together at the beginning, even though they're meant to correspond, I think, when you hear those high sounds. When the true melody came back on, it sounds really good, until they came up again.

That's okay, I'm sure you'll get it over time for synicing, it's really hard to do that. Maybe someone just have a steady beat so when you play it, they'll sync more easily. That's just what I think. Oh! How's the whole band doing, anyways?

Well normally they start out as me messsing around on guitar, and finding some riff that's cool. I then go into FL and put the notes in and then mess with the instruments for it and then start adding more instruments and stuff. Usually there's only one part I start with from a song I play, and make alll the rest of the parts in FL.

Like Dreams of Green, I never knew that was going to be a remix of a chrono trigger song, I was just messing with pads and stuff and pulled a song together in Fl, and while listening to it and playing some lead on guitar, I saw that the melody from Memories of Green fit right in with it.

It took a lot of practice to get this good. Out of the hundred I have, I'd only show off 10-15 max, others I am embarrassed about, but I'll keep then in case I ever want to make a new song with their melody.

I really like the acoustic stuff. That song that was written fast sounds really good. You should do more with it. Maybe make a recording with different stacked tracks or something.

When we were recording a while back we figured we can sing better while playing the instruments, so we recorded it all at once. Pretty unprofessional, but we aren't good at the recording process yet.

Sometimes I "sketch record" by singing parts into a recording program so I can get them out of my head before I forget them.

Haha, I'm about to chuck this supposedly high quality camera out the window. That was my fourth or fifth recording, that one being the loudest I have sang. The camera is supposed to record 5.1 surround sound, but it always gets too bassy on the lower notes and chords. So I end up with the guitar muddling the vocals.

Use audacity or something to being out the higher stuff maybe or record guitar and vocals seperate. Isolating each part allows you to do so much more.

Lol. I'm starting to think that quality is normal for my room. Its not very wide so the sounds bounce back and forth causing my higher frequency vocals to be muffled by the lower frequency guitar notes. At some parts in the song when I am using higher frequency notes/chords you can hear my vocals just fine.



Recently I videoed a new song I had been working on, haven't found the time to upload it. Its called... um. Lol I always forget to name them. I shall name it, A Fictitious Reality. That name fits the song quite well.

As crazy as it sounds, maybe you should try singing in your closet. It works really well to muffle the sound if you have a bunch of clothes hanging in there. It's the cheapest recording studio you can find. :-P

Ambitions For a Nocturnal World
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLpWotbosVg

New song out. I'll copy paste the video description here:

Playing in the back seat of my car isn't really optimal conditions for performing a song. Lol, the car light goes off a bit after halfway.

Funny enough, I came up with the first verse while twirling in the Church yard across from my house at 2-3 in the morning. A light shined on a telephone pole and the pole cast a shadow in the area I was twirling.
I walked into it and noticed my shadow disappeared completely, sparking the idea for the first line of the song.

The song is about being stuck sleeping the day away, and being awake at night. And how I'm in love with the tranquility of the night time, but also longing for a normal life in the back of my mind.


Lyrics:

Intro


Verse 1
I disappear into the shadows
and realize my fears are shallow
manipulations of my mind
why is it so hard to find

my way out of here x4


Verse 2
Why is it that I feel safest
under the light of the moon and starry sky
There really isn't any difference between the dark and light
but I feel so alive in the night

In the night x2


Intro


Verse 3
I melt away into the silence
immersing myself further in the dark
Watching the stars I lose myself
never to know and never to tell
I've lost my way

my way out of here x4


Intro


My way out of here (til end)








I'll be sticking the links into my sig as well.

A Fictitious Reality (Acoustic)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5wn7XREXaM

This song uses the same chords for my My Horse cover, but I made this song before that one. I haven't gotten around to recording any new lately.

This one is about how the realness of some dreams can affect us and our senses.

For a singer-songwriter, I'm going to say you're absolutely the best I know! It's awesome how you actually want to stay away from love songs, especially in "It's Not Goodbye Tonight"

I've met about fifty singer-songwriters when I went to their channels to support them because of a music community-bond. Most of those who dig the style sing about love, then they feel ambitious and think they can make albums. Nothing's wrong with that, but it's just so... Tiring! :(

I haven't seen Inception. I don't watch very many movies.


It's Not Goodbye Tonight will probably the closest I'll come to love songs. Nothing wrong with them, just don't find singing about it appealing.

I write more about abstract things nowadays. You'll see that my write has gotten a lot better(hopefully) in the songs I am in the process of uploading. You'll also notice that I am using longer titles. They sound better that way.

List of my newest written songs(in order of date written):
A Fictitious Reality(uploaded)
Life Is A Cycle, Thus History Repeats Itself
Ambitions For A Nocturnal World(Uploaded)
Meteor Shower Of Epic Proportions(About to upload)
On A Hot Summer Day I Played With Fire(uploaded)


On A Hot Summer Day I Played With Fire
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOCaei_a1ps

This is a fun one to sing. My voice is still getting muffled by the guitar, and I have had enough of it. So I am going to try some things out next time.

October Pt.2 - Rain
http://www.filefront.com/17593127/October%20Pt.%202%20-%20Rain.mp3 (Its 6mb)

This is an mp3 download. It's 2.6mb.


This is my first (awesome) song I've ever recorded into a computer program. Its a sequel of sorts, to October's Cold Grasp Could Be The Death Of Me. This will be up on youtube, either today or tomorrow, depends if I am in the mood to upload it. Try to guess what its about!


EDIT:

2300 AD - A Time Waiting For It's Hero
[s]http://www.filefront.com/thankyou.php?f=17842570[/s]
EDIT: Redid Vocals - http://www.filefront.com/17843325/2300-AD----A-Time-Waiting-For-Its-Hero.mp3/


This song is about all the people after Lavos rose in 1999 AD From Chrono Trigger. In this reality, the hero never comes. It's a remix of Robo Theme and 2300AD, but mainly 2300AD.

All Instruments/Vocals/Wind Rounds all recorded by me or my voice. I'll probably redo the vocals soon.

I finished this 2 - 3 hours ago, but I its taken me til now to render it. Well, sort of. For some reason I can't seem to get some cracks and clicks out of the render. I use Ableton Live 8 now, and I have not noticed this before my win7 reinstall.

I'm beginning to wonder if it's just my comp, but other music plays fine. Once I figure out whats wrong, I plan to submit it to OCRemix. Just need some feedback.


Lyrics:

Left behind
By the flow of time
Remnants of
A past long forgotten

My love, my love


If hope could
Help them the way it should
To give them the will to fight
They'd be alright



There's no hope
In this world
In this life
That their living
Here tonight

Where is their hero
Where is their hero



Edit:

New song called Mr. Valentine. Made for the Valentine day. It's ok I guess.

Mr. Valentine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1emOwNK0LM


Aslo I have a question. Which do you prefer, youtube links or download links?




EDIT:

Here's a new song called Midnight Interlude.

lol! It was funny at first, but the rap-not really rap but opening or closing line- tied with well the background music! So, I was basically bobbing my head back and forth while listening to that. So, it wasn't as bad what I thought you made it out to be. ;)

I really like the Raindrops though because it takes me to a futuristic setting at a city filled with lights at night where the water drops becomes a rave itself. :D

The "Still Alive" was nice on the vocals and guitar, but I don't listen to laid back music much.

Lol, I got carried away after I did the vocals. I felt like adding some simple guitar in, but I had too much fun with it.

Originally it was the drums and bass, and the synth in the middle. Near the end of recording vocals I decided that I'd just make it stupid too, that's why the ending is so stupid.

I use the same set up to record guitar and vocals. Either a Mic or Guitar going to a Roland VS-1880 recorder(I only use it as an amplifier), then I go out the Master channel of the recorder to the Line-In port of my sound card. I use Ableton Live to do the actual recording. I have to use an ASIO driver for it to work, but luckily my sound card maker has their own ASIO driver version.

It's hard to record my electro-acoustic with a mic in my room, so I settle with using a cable. It sucks doing it that way tho cause the High Mid Low settings on my guitar make it sound bad. Took a lot of tweaking to get the guitar to sound decent in Forget.

Hello Again's first instrument that plays is arpeggiated and Generic Rap Song's as well, but other than that I've done the notes on the piano roll myself. I'd get a midi keyboard, but I've never been able to learn piano that well. Too used to using my hands for different things like playing guitar. Drowning Sounds is completely live through a mic this time. Well the kick drum is digital.

I'm more inspired by sounds. I can be listening to any type of music and find something that sounds cool that I want to try to figure out. More often I just hear something in my head that I try to play on my guitar. For lyrics I normally just think while listening to a section of music that I recorded and come up with something. Or I'll have a guitar part I play and sing along to.


Also ya, kind of emo now that I think of it. I like to sing it, one of the more natural songs for me to sing since I wrote to a guitar part.

Same stuff, Ableton live 8 and a few VSTs I found. There's a site called http://www.dskmusic.com/, where I got DSK Choir, DSK Overture, DSK Asian (the guitar), DSK Bass, and DSK Synth vsts. Also found a vst of a grandfather clock that I used in the beginning.


A new one:

I have trouble singing well when I sing louder. I probably learned the wrong way to sing, so I can't really belt.

Probably stems from my self-consciousness about singing in front of people. Though I'm more embarrassed about people getting a bad first impression I guess. That and I don't like being around a lot of people, so to have people ask me to sing or something would make me uncomfortable and nervous.

So probably just a confidence thing.

I have that same problem, that's why I only make music and not sing.

Did a couple new songs finally! The move to Houston Texas and getting settled in a job has really ate up my time for anything. Might've helped with my mixing though, having fresh ears.


3 Libras - A Perfect Circle (Cover):

Did a song on Halloween, called Holloweve:
