    Song a Week Season 3: Week 5

    Week 5, season 3. The spirit again is to write a song a week.

    leaderboard is:

    astrocreep 40pts
    Bohmer 40pts
    Rocka_Rollas 30pts
    Iron1 30pts
    scole 30pts
    TheKindred 10 pts
    Markus 10pts
    T_Gobbs 10pts
    KarlHV 10 pts

    The rest of MG.org: Nada, zilch, zip

    Instead of eliminations, we will work like thus:

    We'll attempt to submit one song a week.

    - The first scores you 10 points.
    - The second in a week scores you 7 points
    - The third, 5 points
    - The fourth 2 point, and 1 point for every further song.

    If you miss a week, you score 0 points, but, it allows everyone to keep playing until the end. It means people falling ill or ending up with heavy workloads don't get eliminated due to bad luck, and it also means people can start and join in whenever, and play a bit of catch up if they want. 10 points is an incentive to submit weekly, but if something happens, and it's late, you can still play a little catch up.

    We'll keep a rolling tally all the way through to week 8, at which point someone will be rewarded with the coveted season 3 crown(*)

    Rules:
    1) All Submissions by end of play 6th of September
    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 don't score points.
    7) Remember that quality outstrips quantity, don't just post up tons of rubbish to try and win, we're doing this to get writing, someone winning the coveted season 3 crown is a bonus(*)
    8) Mixtests don't count, there's another forum for that (ss.org)
    9) Submissions to be posted as soundcloud links

    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.


    (*) crown does not exist. Like the cake, it is a lie

    Hell yes Where do you get the sound fx you sometimes use to start off your songs? Would love to screw around with that kind of stuff

    Some of them are Apple iLife SFX, others I DL from places like soundbible.com or freesound.com. I started using them 'cause Soundcloud sometimes clips off the first few milli-seconds of my tracks, which messes with the impact of the opening notes, so if it cuts off a second of a SFX, I don't care.

    Started on this track Sunday and i'm mostly happy with it. The solo is shit but it's way faster than anything i've played in a while so i've been doing speed drills to be able to eventually play it.
