  1. Thanks to Mike B for letting me take a shot at something! I think it helped and the answer there is to just get out there and do it. Bad or good it helps.
  2. Sometimes we force rules onto the "#3 collab with extra cheese!!" Pick a city to write about or use a certain chord progression or my favorite was the chorus first challenge. All under the method of a #3. Just throwing it out as a possible minor twist to that method. I'm good either way.
  3. Hi Scoto

    I seem to remember that you are a Johnny Cash fan

    if I remembered correctly I have a song we could work on 

    Look forward to hearing from you

      Absolutely! Would be fun to channel some Cash.

      Sweet man. I've progressed somewhat with my guitar playing but haven't really been applying it to song writing. Kind of excited to give something like this a go. 

  4. We played with the idea where the musicians would create music first and then the lyricist would write to the music. No big deal just throwing it out there.
  5. I love these contests. Helps to just get out there and do something. I might not always be great at them but I love the process.
  6. I'm going to give it a go this weekend. This is the exact area I am struggling with right now so I might not make anything better. I'll withhold all my thoughts on the flow the lyric until I give it a go. Overall I really liked the lyric and Mike's interpretation as well. Not sure I can do any better but the fun is in the "work".
  7. Raise a Glass by Soul Punch Lyrics and Music Scott Palmer Electric guitar, Ebow, and lead vocals - Scott Palmer (Scotto) Acoustic guitar, vocals, and foot operated drums - Jim Darnell Upright Bass and vocals - Steve Murphy Verse Take a shoulder to cry and lean on To the bar for a drink or two Don't care about what you say about what we do and what's it matter to you It matters to you Chorus So we'll all raise a glass and have a fine drink and we'll relive the past before we stop and think Of the world and all those other things Other things Verse People talk about people everywhere It's the back hand that stings for a while We don't care we do what we love and what's it matter to you It matters to you Chorus So we'll all raise a glass and have a fine drink and we'll relive the past before we stop and think Of the world and all those other things Other things Bridge/Chorus2 We all raise a glass and drink for the heck of it High time we fight for the rest of it Singing our songs for the love and the hell of it all Verse So swing on down the old pub crawl downtown We'll drink a little something behind us Don't want to think about no aye aye aye aye Just want to be somewhere Oh to be somewhere Chorus So we'll all raise a glass and have a fine drink and we'll relive the past before we stop and think Of the world and all those other things Other things Bridge/Chorus 2 We all raise a glass and drink for the heck of it High time we fight for the rest of it Singing our songs for the love and the hell of it all Outro So we’ll all raise a glass Yes we’ll all raise a glass So we’ll all raise a glass We all raise a glass and drink for the heck of it High time we fight for the rest of it Singing our songs for the love and the hell of it all **Disclaimer - A previous version of this song was judged in one of these contests 1-2 years ago under the title Other Things. This is a fuller production with additional players as credited. If anyone takes issue with the entry feel free to strike it. No hard feelings on my part. I brought it to my live playin and payin gig and they liked it and we worked it up.
  8. HA DinoRider! Hey at least they did it to their own songs... Actually, musically, it is always there. I can pick up a guitar or bass and have something in a matter of minutes. Right now it is strictly a lyrical problem. Not that my lyrics were ever great, they've been unusually awful of late and I just can't get anything to sit. That is to say I'm having issues with the lyrics to the music part of the deal so all the music is useless by time I screw it up by singing crap over it... I do write from bass a lot. Usually instrumentals. Last bit I tried was all keys but it originates from the bass lines. It's the latest thing on my sound cloud I think. Kind of stinks but it was a work out of sorts. I've got a collab working and more instrumental things looking for lyrics than I can shake a stick at... I did post a song from last year of a song from 2 or so years ago into the song contest. Maybe I should just keep regurgitating my old material.
  9. Oh yeah. Loved working with Ricky. Maybe I'll give him a text see if he has anything. Haven't heard from him in a while myself. Someone dropped me a vocal to try out so I'll give that a go as well.
  10. Wow thanks guys. I'm up for a adding some vocals if anyone has anything. Just leave me a PM. It is always nice to have a reason to work on something to force the issue. Hey Kuya. Yeah I'm stateside and pretty exhausted as well as cold ha ha. Cold weather is usually a good excuse to stay in, pick up an instrument and give it a strum or three, which I certainly have been trying. Just not feeling anything happen I suppose. Least not for song writing. I do get to play out live regularly at least and I wonder if that has something to do with it. Playing mostly covers 3-4 times a month might be distracting from writing or at least influencing it. It's good to have the mula coming in at any rate. Thanks for the encouragement. If anyone has something they want a vocal for let me know...
  11. Thanks! I'm just going to noodle on nothing to try and get things going I suppose.
  12. What do we do when we're just tapped out musically? I don't want to be tapped out honestly. I love the process but I've just got nothing happening worth a damn right now. I worked on a song for like 3 months and it is just forced nonsense. Probably most of the stuff I post here is the same but I convince myself to buy into it. There are times when a song write just happens naturally and feels like a dream almost. It just works and flows and is over pretty quick. I know there are folks that can take an idea and turn out a pretty natural sounding song quickly and I envy those guys for sure. It's always been a longer road to a song for me than most it seems but lately the well is dry. I suppose I need to find that excitement again. I've always struggled with self doubt anyway and life as thrown me a few curves of late so I suppose that is part of it as well. Anyone else go through this and get the magic back? Even if it isn't earth shattering we buy into it ourselves at the very least and that is good therapy...
  13. I like the like feature but dislike the reputation score feature. Also I like the idea of being able to like peoples critiques. A good crit deserves encouragement.
  14. I'm with Neal on the collab contests. I finished near last in all but one of those things but I entered every one of them because the experience was helpful and meeting and working with like minded fellows was really the best benefit.
  15. I messaged behind the scenes and ended up having a long discussion to determine if joining would be a good idea for me because the idea of it appealed to me. They are well meaning folk. Y'all can put the pitch forks away. I will tell you there is no money or shisterism thus far. Just a group of folks loosely chatting about song writing. Presenting songs and challenges to one another. Like a virtual song writing circle. I'm not selling you on it. I think they have enough folks now. Just watching trouble brew and hoping to head em off at the pass... "Head em off at the pass... I hate that cliche"
