As I mentioned a couple days ago, I have been working despite the lack of blog updates. I've now managed to make Quicktime versions of 8 of my songs, and I thought I'd share them with you. I don't know if you care or not, but since it's my blog, I'll post 'em anyway. However, I have to start with the traditional "bore you to tears with background information" segment, so let's get that over with.
I assume you're all aware that I'm a musician, so I'll skip the explanation of how I started this. Also, the explanation of how I made these songs in the first place is here.
Now, on to the songs themselves. They're all rock songs, and I'd classify them as "grunge metal," although your name for this style may be different. I'm not really big on categorization. They're meant to sound as close as possible to the drum parts I play in real life (with a bit of double bass thrown in, of course) and the guitar parts I've written in my head. I'd also like to add that it's really cool to hear some of these after they've been playing in my brain for 2 or 3 years.
If you listen to these, keep in mind that they would be a lot louder and more aggressive when played with actual instruments, and that there would be vocals to make some of them less repetitive. The lyrics for these songs are all here, as well as a few drum samples. I am planning on changing a few of the words at some point, but the ones that are posted now are the ones I wrote this music for.
...So, is everyone still here? Great! Let's get to the fun part. I'll post the songs in the order they would appear on an album (hmm...I could call it "CD's CD") so you can get the full experience if you choose to listen to 'em all. They're in MP3 format, if you were wondering.
...Oh, and one more thing: If any of this music sounds familiar, let me know. I may have unconsciously ripped off a few of the guitar parts from songs I've heard. But if I did, it was not intentional. Thank you.
