It's been dry mid to i-70s here south of Boston.

Great sleeping weather in the 60s with a nice breeze.

Well, it took 2 days, but I got the power steering fixed, the oil changed, and all the brakes replaced on the van.  Tomorrow it's the brakes on the car.  And then all the plow truck work...  ???

Cheater Challenge One
« on: August 07, 2019, 03:01:56 PM »
Choose one of your favourite songs
Get or make a backing track.
Sing to your track but use your own lyrics.
It's OK to use a couple of original lyrics just to make it flow but basicaly, it must tell your own story.
I hope a few might take an hour to join in these as they are not hard and it'll be good fun to hear what others do.
I've forgotten how to upload OGGs Joom. If you can put me right. So mky attachment is in that format.

Way2, you can upload an OGG by going to the "Additional Menu" on the left, and clicking on "Song Upload Page".

This will be fun, and hopefully we get a few joining in, but I'll be tied up for a couple/few days...

Sat down with a coffee thinking about how busy the next few days (weeks) are going to be, and that I might not be able to get in on this.

But since I had a few minutes, I decided to give it a run.  I promised myself a while back that I wasn't going to do any more getting old songs, but right now that seems to be all that's in my head.  So, it was quick and it sucks, but I'm in on the first challenge here.



And for those who can't use the player:

HC joom!

I would kill to have such a well-produced recording! It's the bane of my existence!

Were you playing everything? Were the drums ezdrummer or a program?

BTW... Always like you lyrics! You are quite the song Smith!

I had to listen to it using the two-track like off to explore getting that particular player so I can listen to way2's as well.

one thing I do know is that I don't know all that I should know; ya know?

Thanks, KC.  As I mentioned, all the crap that's been going on around here just has my head pumped with this getting old stuff.  The next one we do I'm going to make sure has nothing to do with that, and make it a fun one.  ;)

I didn't play any of that, for cheaters we just use karaoke versions of songs we like.  Sometimes we sing the actual song, but for this particular challenge board we still use a Karaoke version of the tune, but write our own lyrics for it.

I don't know why a few people here can't use the player to listen to the songs, but it's been mentioned before.  From what I've heard, I think it's mostly a 'mobile' thing.  Regular computers seem to be able to use it.

I do hope a few people decide to take the 10 minutes to get in on these cheater challenges.  It doesn't do anything to help with playing and making music like the ODC does, but it does help with writing lyrics, and I've always had a lot of fun rewriting favorite old tunes.

By the way, if anyone wants to do this but can't get a Karaoke version of the tune they want to use, just let me know and I can tell you how to get it (for free), or get it for you if you can't.

And another idea I had was, in some cases (not necessarily all), maybe the winners of these challenges could pick the tune to be used in the next one.  Sort of similar to the ODC.
