    Oh, that's not what made me comment....

    Tell you what, why don't you stick up for the shoe spammers next time and then we'll talk, 'kay?


    this is a music oriented site right?... not a 'Foot Locker' medium.
    Music 'talky' good... shoe 'talky' Malo.

    Sorry If I offended you 'Queen Bee'...take a pill and call me in the morning...then we'll talk, 'kay?

      What do you think of this Pringle?





      I actually chatted with the OP a bit. He seems a nice enough young guy. Operative word being "young", which gets you forgiven a lot more easily than a guy my or Ken's or Lukenskywalker's age would be under similar circumstances.


      so, all those things about 'vaseline and tissues' are now moot?: I'm cool with that... peace, love,...why don't we have a Sammy Sosa heart punch /lip kiss emoticon?
      Zak, I'm at a loss about the Pringle thing...'splain' , por favor, to me.

            I've noticed people also compare a lot of great Jazz to elevator music.. usually non-musicians.

            Thanks for taking the time to listen Philter.

            I think that all depends on what one considers great jazz.


            I think the problem here is that successful internet forums do develop local culture -- and that is a necessary process -- or they will die and/or become dumping grounds for spam.

            You may have seen the recent news item on an analysis that showed that well over 90% of the "user content" on the web is spam and malware. Spam is like kudzu vines. It will take over if the locals don't keep it at bay. And it will choke off all other life eventually.


            A successful forum develops a community that has sets of overlapping interests -- but typically no one is there just to be a receiver of someone else's self-promotion.

            And, typically, forums that are open to or cater to self-promotion quickly turn into forums filled with threads with one original post and no responses... save the occasional You rock, dude! Now click here to listen to...

                  IMO...opening guitar groove is catchy...but I find it difficult to believe that's all you came up with after years of production in your bedroom...

                  Years of 'production' in my bedroom resulted in a beautiful daughter and two commercially successful songs.

                  So, not to lose focus, my Plebian suggestion to you would be take the musical blinders off...lose the ego.... and as they say in Pre-school Idiom,...'learn to play well with others'



                  This first point I actually think is valid. My roommate said to me is "it's so weird for me to listen to this song as the one you release, when you play original music 10x better on a daily basis."

                  I wrote this song probably 3 years ago. I produced it with about $300 worth of equipment and no audio training.. so from a composition standpoint this is a primitive work. I put a lot into the drum sequences and ensuring that the parts came through correctly.

                  That said, I still stand by the performance and I love the song for what it is. Just because I can (and do) write more compositionally intricate pieces doesn't mean I should (all the time).

                    Well, that's all well and good.
                    But tossing something like that song out as your "debut" to the world would (and did) leave most people saying "wtf"?

                        Just curious, did you listen to the whole song?

                          Yes I did, hence the "Weather Channel" comparison.

                          Everything about it was kind of monotonous...from the progression to the wanky bits on the end.
                          There was no dynamic to any of it...it was completely monolithic.

                          Another board on HC, that I hang out on, gets "check out my band/song" posts all the time.
                          Much of the stuff is pretty bad, but when something really good comes along, you'll find that the kudos are plentiful.

                          (edit: A couple of weeks ago, a complete noob offered up his band's music on Backstage With the Band - it was some of the most awesome progressive rock I've heard in years...most of us that listened now own either this guy's physical CD or album download, it was that good.)

                            That big "IS YOUR MUSIC ANY GOOD" thread stickied at the top of the topic list is hard to handle, huh?


                            no one ever seems to read/comment on that one oke:

                              I just wrote a long post, but it got eaten by the internet

                              Anyway, it's a tough crowd, but so are labels, booking agents, clubs, etc. It is considered gauche to come into a forum and immediately start self-promoting, regardless of your intentions. There are thousands of people who say "listen to my music," and you haven'tmdifferentiated yourself from them.

                              For example, suppose you had come into the forum for the first time and said "I came up wih a bunch of synth patches for a song I wrote, and thought I'd share them. They're attached to this post in a zip file. If you want to hear them in action, check out the song as www.lala[whatever].com. I hope you enjoy the patches and the music, and if you have comments on either, I'm all ears."

                              See? You start off by contributing something, and asking nothing in return. I bet you would have gotten a lot more people interested in your music with that kind of tactic.

                              Anyway, I did listen to the entire tune. Up to 2:50 is sounded like a rhythm track waiting for something to happen. At 2:50 I got hopeful when the guitar kicked in - I liked the tone and the bending. But before it could actually get emotional, it de-evolved into a flurry of notes - not John Coltrane "sheets of sound" flurries, but "warming up fingers before gig" flurries. So the bottom line is, I wouldn't listen to it again because I got no emotional impact from it.
