On Writing Music

Post by brandonman » Sat Apr 27, 2019 12:49 am

Well ladz, Willies has heard samples of the album a couple times as it's come along. But I've not shared it here yet. I have a 14 track, hour long album, that I've written. Right now, it's just a demo (and that demo is dragged down by me playing drums, RECORDING drums (which is hard), and my nasty sounding drum kit)

That all said, I'd be happy to hear what my fellow MDF'ers have to say about what I've posted on soundcloud so far. I've got about 6 or so tracks posted up out of the 14 tracks on my tentative album.

These are all demos. I'm constantly toying with the vocal recordings. Guitar stuff is mostly locked in. If you don't like the drumming, I'm a really bad drummer. Sorry. If you don't like the RECORDED SOUND of the drums, double sorry. I'm going to be getting a lad on board as a committed drummer (whose drumkit isn't a shitty one like mine) sometime soon. Then we're going to hit a studio that knows how to record drums, unlike me in my dining room turned studio.

PM for link.

It's a variety of Punk, Blues Rock, Classic Rock, Southern Rock, and 70s Hard Rock - if you like Rock and Roll guitar driven music, if you hate the STYLE of one, you'll probably like something else in the album. No guarantee you'll like my vocals, though. (I've had tracks compared directly to Machine Head era Deep Purple, which was a great compliment)

Get Me Another Round is the most MDF related track. Wrote it about my home-base favorite bar.

Hope you guys at least feel some potential. They're demos to get a drummer on board (I have a couple in mind), and then get us into a studio. Ideally on a record company's dime, but that'll happen even without that, someday, for my satisfaction.

I wouldn't call it punk. It's like if alternative rock, blues rock, 70s hard rock (like deep purple), and punk had a baby.

Brandonman, you've rocked that axe on stage for years, getting all that titties and beer. Now you're going for it.

That takes guts. Yup. Calls for a drink indeed.

Yeah, I'm digging it.
Keep doing what you're doing. Find a rhythm section. You are on to something.
Oh, that? Yeah, I did that, it's my fault. I'm sorry.

As soon as you get a drummer, it will start sounding better. additionally, a good guitar player, bassist, lead vocalist, and song writer will make it listenable. I look forward to hearing it again once you are able to secure those little tiny details.

He didn't even say "fuck" in that post! I think he was trying to be polite.
