  1. I'd probably do music. But it might only be a live acoustic/vocal performance phone recording. Not sure anyone is interested in that. But I did do that in last year's collaboration contest.
  2. That's the thing. I honestly don't even know what drivers are. So I sure as hell don't want to have driver problems. What is D to A conversation sounds?
  3. Been there, done that!
  4. As a bass player yourself. Do you ever try writing with just a bass guitar. Sometimes coming at it from a different angle might help. I'm not sure what kind of life's curves has recently happened. But would they be something to pull inspiration from? I've been dabbling with playing out some, covers etc. And yes, I agree. That definitely steals creative juices from the songwriting process. I'm not sure how you can work around that. My advice. Somehow, someway, just come at it in a completely different approach as you normally would. If you haven't tried that already.

  6. 2 mic pre's are plenty. Maybe I'll just fire up the ol' Korg D3200. Now that I forgot everything I learned.
  7. So are there any interfaces that work flawlessly with windows in a decent price range like focusrite or presonic? (I have windows 7) Especially for someone not interested in working through computer issues. Or should someone like me just go ahead and purchase an RME? I'd gladly pay more if issues could mostly be eliminated.
  8. Just listened on my phone. I think it's a really good song. Both musically and lyrically. As I was casually listening to this it felt good. The only thing that didn't feel quite right to me was the guitar solo. Just my opinion, but I think it could've use more notes played. But I think you have a winner here.
  9. Nooo. This can not be true. It can't be. Now tell me I'm onto something here. As I'm getting older, I'm looking at my daughter, who absolutely loves Justin Bieber, not as a sign of me getting older, but her not being old enough to have developed a good and healthy taste in great music yet. Say it is so. Please! :P/>/> :P/>/> :P/>/> Times they ain't a changing right?!! Merry Xmas to you all!!! S Nope, if your daughter is listening to Justin Bieber, you're probably screwed. Lol. Sorry! Just like my step daughter. I try shoving some good music down her throat. But she's mostly not having it. She does listen to one group I turned her onto. Fink. But that's about it. She mostly listens to the pop music. She has a new favorite song every other week. Oh yeah, I heard a Justin Bieber Christmas Song earlier today. Ouch!
  10. Alright! Possibly my favorite Muse artist. Always looking forward to a new song from you. Like Rick says, your songs do have a Weezer vibe, and yes, I frickin love Weezer. But I generally like music heavier than Weezer. That's why I love your stuff. You have that vibe but your music is heavier. Also had a Queens of the Stone Age vibe. Sorry to compare this to other bands. As you definitely have a good enough original sound. Anyway, no real critique from me. Merry Christmas!
  11. I'm personally not sharing anything atm. I think the other questions are similar enough to give one opinion on. This is just a hunch, but I believe that instead of searching the web to find this magical place, they are searching the big social media sites for a solution. I can't say for sure, because I really don't do the whole social media thing, but am willing to bet there are several songwriting communities on those platforms. On youtube you can find a tutorial for just about anything songwriting. I have gone there and browsed videos and tutorials and many of them had links to their community on facebook. I don't do the social media thing so I never check them out. Others will promoting their site through the free tutorials they have up on youtube. They are subscription sites, and claim to have more advanced tutorials and "tools" for songwriters upon paying for the membership. I, being a tightwad, have failed to check any of these out either. I would imagine those are the places many of the young folk are getting their start. The irritation about the "young people" comment doesn't stem from that comment alone. There have been several threads started that go something like "this new (insert genre) is total dogshit" (paraphrased of course) and many people jumping on the bandwagon. That really doesn't give off the vibe of a friendly community for ALL songwriters. Then placing ALL young people in a box.... well... On a side note mike b owslek and hobosage are probably the 3 most open minded and helpful individuals Imo. They will listen to and offer suggestions to just about anything. It may not always be what people want to hear but at least they are giving something to a subject that would normally be shunned or ignored by most. And Mike B, i understand your frustration with the youngins, but remember those type of people who think everything they do is "golden" come in all ages, just look around. Peace all, and Merry Christmas For me, when it comes to music and youth. I mostly keep my mouth shut. Because my grandparents hated my parents music. My parents hated my music. I hate the pop crap my step daughter listens to. So when we start talking about the new stuff not being any good. We're officially old and not cool anymore. Lol I'm assuming most Musers are in the parent category, probably a good amount in the grandparents category. So "relevant" most of us are not. Feliz Navidad!
  12. Thanks for the free entertainment Hobo! Always appreciated!
  13. EmilyEmily and Pauld3 both left post that I think is how a lot of people feel about the Muse. This was what I was pointing at in my original post questions. Not saying Pauld3 left the right names at the bottom of his post. But if that's how he feels, that's how he feels.
  14. In February, a whole lot of them are at FAWM. 10707 songs written during the last FAWM - FAWM Songs. I wrote 14 of those songs. Lol. It was fun!
  15. Great observations Songwolfe!
