Where do your lyrics come from?

I make chit up probably half the time just to make rhymes. Maybe more than half...
I find listening to other musicians gives me both musical and lyrical ideas... I'll sometimes take someone elses theme, line and reword it. By the time I'm finished with it there is little to no resemblence of where it came from.
yeah so... where do your lyrics come from?

It's illegal to sing out of key in the state of North Carolina... though they haven't caught me yet. I would like to keep this off of the challenge rules if it's not too late.  :o :P
It's true.

I've thought about this on many occasions but 40 odd minutes each way on the train toting a dreadnought kinda kills the enthusiasm quickly :)

Sounds like a Busking opp.  Get yerself one of them lightweight mini geetars, an empty cup and you're good to go. ;D

Great theme Dino
Is Shania Twain country or western? what is the difference? wasnt dolly parton country and western?

According to Wiki
During the 1930s and 1940s, cowboy songs, or Western music, which had been recorded since the 1920s, were popularized by films made in Hollywood. Some of the popular singing cowboys  from the era were Gene Autry , the Sons of the Pioneers  and Roy Rogers .[35]  Country music and western music were frequently played together on the same radio stations, hence the term country and western music.

I see it as you have "one" opportunity to do the best you can. But then I always seem to be on the wrong side in these challenge things.  :-X

Steve you did fine! The song is missing something and I can't quite figure it out.  Usually just want to get it done and move on to the next.
I think it's part performance though... took me a few days to get a groove on the chords. Never seem to be able to play it twice the same way. So every take felt a little different. And I kept thinking horns should be blowing through parts but I couldn't get a decent sound on my Yamahoooo keyboard.
Ehhh no sweat... it's just adult refrigerator art.  :P

We aim... We shoot.... we hit the target! Maybe not a Bullseye but a decent effort and shot :D
Thanks again man!
On to "Wasted".... well that was the name of the song when I recorded it. Will be called "What do you know" when finished.

Well... I ran out of polish on this one so I put some lipstick and a wig on her.  :o
Steve helped me out again with some sweat and probably tears but he got through it.
Thanks Bro!
Suppose to be an older feel kind of tune... calling it "Where you from" as in your roots where do you come from.
As a kid growing up we had music in the house all the time usually some Motown sounds The Beatles or Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Frankie etc... but I remember vinyl and the needle and crackling coming through the speakers and then... music. Still what a joy to this day.
Anyway I wanted to capture some early days not always good... sometimes scary... but true and the things that bring you "The Blues". Just never gets old to me.


Where you from

Ever since i was a little one
The sound of music got me to the bone
I had some records and a phonograph
And I'd play that music in my room and let it blast

Everyday I couldn't wait to get home
The teacher couldn't teach the things I wanted to know
But I was learning from that old vinyl
Bout the Motown Rhythms and that Rock n Roll

And I'd dream all through the night
thinking about being a star
Got my Chuck Berry pose
doing the Duck Walk
on my knee's playing guitar

Now now now where do you come from
Said Now now now
hey little girl if you feel a little down come and get you some

Sally said she got some new albums
Badfinger and The Rolling Stones
So I went over and we wore them out
Yeah we played that music till the sun came up

But then I heard a little knock on the door
Her father walked in found us lying on the floor
I stood up but he knocked me back down
then he left the room shouting where'd I leave that gun

So I scrambled round the room running for the door
Fearing for my life
I headed down the alley
turned around to see
double barrel pointing right back at me

Now now now where did he come from
Said Now now now
hey little girl if you feel a little wrong don't let him bring you down

Now all that drama made me want to see a friend
The record store was right around the bend
The clerk said man what happen to you
I said I'll tell you man but you've got to play me some Blues
Yeah play me some Blues
play me some Blues
Yeah play me some Blues
play me some Blues

I use a pair I got on sale for $50.00 (half off) at Sam Ash. Sennheisers I believe. They  were on a rack with the rest of the headphones so I tried them all. Couldn't tell that much of a difference to justify the cost with the more expensive ones. Although the more money the more comfortable they were to wear. But there were some real cheapos that didn't feel right or sound right. (was like listening to a transistor radio) They have Pro Tools set up at the stores so you can plug them in and get a better idea of what they sound like.
I've had them for about 2 years now and have no complaints.

Click tracks can be an issue from time to time... I usually try to adjust accordingly. Keep it faint in the mix. Especially where a song ends. Take the last 15 seconds and I drop the click out completely and keep my foot tapping ever so lightly!  ???

Yeah most of the early Country music seemed to be of the broken hearted theme.
So much of todays modern country is just bad... Nashville seems to love bubble-gum... for at least 2 decades now.
It has become a parody of itself... imo of course.  ::)

Yup... Western swing uses some crazy jazz phrasing and chords... fast yet smooth players.
Fun to watch, tough to figure out or keep up with.  :o

Yeah kcc the hook is oh so important. Most good songs the hook raises the bar on the song for one reason or another.
 Sometimes the delivery is more important than the words.
Think of the simplest lines and punch em above everything else in the song
When the Beatles sang "She loves you Yeah Yeah Yeah" nobody thinks about the music underneath that. It's the delivery... it takes over. Before that you kind of groove to the rhythm then bam it hits you like a sledgehammer.

RE: "New England Christmas"  Nice lines... and yeah it is an easy one to picture.
Did you finish it, music and all?
Believe me I know hokey. I keep it in me back pocket and get my share of it. But there's an honesty in it. We can't be all badazz all the time now....  :P I'd say at least half of what I write would fall under the hokey category. I don't worry about it... my kids have said to me for years.  :D

Look on the bright side you can pick and choose between the 2 every month. And if time permits or you get energized/motivated you can enter both.

Congrats Dino and all the participants!

Dino your song gave me a smile... might seem odd considering the content, but I was just glad to see you put "your sound" back on to some tracks.  Obviously the tires still have some tread and there's fuel in the tank.
You're too good to sit idle.

I come to the TTM site most every day even if it's just to read or listen to what others are doing.
I've entered the TTM challenge only a few times... and haven't really visit the GMH cafe that often. No offense to the creators I don't really see that much of a difference. Though I'm sure each has its own unique qualities. But it does seem like a duplication of things.
I do make sure that I vote on the TTM challenges and have done so every month since I've been coming here. Even tallied a few times.  :-\ :o
Are the challenges Universal or are there certain qualities that seperate them... as participants do you see much difference in the two? If not then it's duplication.

I would think bringing the two together should be decided by Joom and the GMH cafe creator(s). But that's just my .02...
anyone got change for a nickel. :-\

Well done Joe... really nice composition there Joom.
Hopefully someone hears it and it helps them. 

I wrote a similar tune but from the perspective of the person still here... got to thinking about how so many people leave and no one gets a chance to say good-bye.
Just taken in the blink of an eye.
Love while you can!  ;)

It loses something to me when I hear GW do it. Sounds too processed maybe IDK...

Ahhh... what about "All the way From Memphis" anyone got the chops for the pianer... and the sax.  Would love to try the guitar parts though. Schprock you should have that vox in your back pocket!

White... Danny got the box of 64 colors I only got 8.

Didn't know much about him while he was alive but over the years I learned of him was blown away at his style.
Probably the most under-rated unknown player of all time. Outside of some circles and git players most have never heard of him. Shame... another R&R suicide.  :(

This song is turning out to be more work than I thought it'd be...  :-\  but it's coming along. Should have it ready over the weekend Schprock. Simple little rock-n-roll song he says to himself... simple my arse. I actually had to learn this frickin thing and come up with a decent bass line.  ???
Here's a new mix with all parts in place I think... well as of today. Not bad for the time into it though still has some performance issues but I'll get em done.
R&R... wtf?

Yeah me to Neil... most of the time. But sometimes I do try to find a feel or groove.
I'm working on this tune and I intentionally wanted to have kind of a 60's Rock-n-Roll ala Yardbyrds/Aerosmith feel about it. Big 10 inch walking the dog kind of sound.
Some dirty guitar sounds and dirty lyrics to match... sort of. We'll see how good my aim is when it's done.  ::)
