Still shoveling, Ag.  These last 3 weeks have been the worst of the winter, with a dozen other problems tossed in.  I could whine about it for hours...  :P

I've been so preoccupied with everything going wrong around here for the last week I hadn't even noticed, RJ.  I bet White caught it...

oops, I was just reading the text message that I copied into my previous 'shout' and realized my buddy used some colorful language.   :o  

I see someone already corrected it for me.  Sorry!!  :-[

I've been working on how to improvise and just found this playlist with a metric crap-ton of guitar backing tracks. Thought I'd share.

Hey Hey, power back (for now).  But still snowing and blowing.

Wonder if Canada is getting any of this, or is it just our little treat?  :P

Well, heavy snow and 50mph winds with gusting.  Lost power about 6-7 hours ago.  Waited till it was 45 in the house to see if it would come back on before going out and starting the generator.  Hope it comes back on sometime tonight...

October ODC - The Start
« on: October 07, 2017, 02:38:17 AM »
Well, well, well....

It's challenge time....

It's October....

Sooooooo......

It should be halloween themed right?

Nah..... :P

Too easy....

Been there, done, that, bought the digital download....

Hey!
Don't blame me!
I tried to slough this off :P

Just kidding.... I'm terrible at this....
If I had any inspiration I wouldn't need the ODC to kick my ass into writing songs every month lol

Hmmm...now there's an idea.....

You always hear people say they have trouble starting something...whether it's a song, a letter, a lawnmower...

This month's challenge is to write and record a new song (starting ...now!) about the start of something.....
It can be anything - doesn't matter what - starting an engine, starting a new life, starting to change, starting a job - whatever you pick, the song MUST contain the word START (spoken or sung or whispered or screamed or shouted or mumbled) at least once.... and the song must be about starting....or not starting....something :D
And in keeping with recent events - the song should sound like something Tom Petty would record.....

No time limits,  no restrictions on instrumentation, no restrictions on loops/samples etc........
You may request a "guest" artiste on your track without stopping them from entering their own track...the only restriction is that they shouldn't be involved in the "writing" of the song - that would make it a collaboration and exclude them from entering their own track...
As always...a collaboration only has one entrant vote, the creator of other tracks has the only entrant vote (session musicians have no input)
Tactical voting by session artists will be punishable by red hot pokers and The Comfy Chair.....

Instrumentals welcome, but don't forget the "start" word stipulation...

Entries shall close midnight on the 28th of October 2017 wherever you are in the world..... so get started!

Good theme Neilmac.

Only one question from me. What is the other artist meant to do to your track that doesn't form some kind of collaboration?

Do you mean like if the songs all written and recorded, someone else can jump in and add a van halen solo on top?

Yes  :P sort of.....
What I mean is YOU write the song.....You alone....
Guest artistes or session players do not contribute lyrics, melody or ideas which change the song....
They just play what you tell them to play.....
