    Song a Week Challenge, Season 1, Week 2

    Week 2!

    Still in contention:
    The Kindred
    Iron1
    Jumpintoinfinity
    astrocreep
    T Gobbs
    Rev Drucifier
    Nick
    7 Dying Trees
    scole

    Rules:
    1) Submissions by end of play 18th of January
    2) Even if noone can check, the spirit is writing a song a week
    3) No rules on genre, you don't even need to do the same style next week
    4) Must be a song, unless you have a very (and I mean the kind that is beyond the ability of mere mortals) good argument for playing the same riff for 3+ minutes it won't fly
    5) Entries composed on a tascam or without drums, whatever, also welcome, this is about writing a song, not dressing it up in lipstick and a short skirt
    6) If you don't submit, you're eliminated (but you can still keep on submitting anyway as practice, this way the competitives get to be competitive, and the less so inclined still get to join in).

    We will not:
    1) Make people feel bad about mixing skills by turning this into a mixtest competition, it's about getting a load of us writing to a deadline, this is about writing, not about how awesome your headless kiesel sounds through an axe fx with superior drummer
    2) Make people feel bad about how well it's recorded
    3) Spam thread with songs we've had lying around for ages or anything non relevant to this competition and it's rules
    4) Discourage anyone from participating
    5) Tell anyone they suck. Songwriting is a skill, you learn it, some people will be better, others worse, this isn't a pissing competition
    6) Steal others work or ideas.

    Eliminated people welcome to submit as well

  2. Thanked by:

    has to be new, the point here is to get everyone developing new ideas, so we're writing, if you want to finish a song, i think there was another thread for that, the peer pressure one?

    I'm in! That feeling when you wanted to write something thrashy but ended up with The Donnas/Poison/Pretty Boy Floyd.

    This song was written as a song that would have lyrics and that type of structure but lyric writing isn't my bag.

    ^ nice work dude.

    getting mine in early again cause I had some free time over the weekend after last week's ended. Went a little different but trying to keep a theme with it. Played with effects a bit more.

    as always, feedback/critique and comments welcome!

    Spoiler
    Jesus dies at the end....
