    Welcome, Randy!

    I’ve got shitty internet on my ipad at work because I’m using a hotspot from my personal phone so I don’t cause any shit cruising guitar forums on the clock, but I’m anxious to get home and check out what’s been posted so far!

    I finished writing my tune yesterday, tracked the legit guitars last night, doing bass and a lead tonight then it’s vocals tomorrow. This is the first tune I’ve ever written in drop-B and it definitely has a Slipknot vibe, IMO. Every time I say to myself that I’m going to start writing more clean vocal songs, I write something that’s more appropriate to scream on. Such is life.
    Perfection is the enemy of progress.

    This happens to me with every song I've ever written Or worse yet, the music is plenty appropriate to sing over but I scream anyway...

    Nice playing! I purposefully waited on checking it out because I wanted to get my own entry done... Speaking of which, here it is in all it's incredibly sloppy glory. I divided the song into 5 sections and did separate improvisations over each, but I managed to avoid too many punch in/outs otherwise. This thrashy kind of stuff is not what I'm used to so I had fun trying to play over something different

    Don't beat yourself up, this was really good!! I think it's totally appropriate to write leads in multiple takes, but then go the extra mile by getting down the muscle memory and learning how to tie them together so you can play it all at once. Playing with a band always helped with this. I'd write this lead line I could barely play, then my bandmates would expect me to be able to play it live, so I had to constantly get better. I love writing difficult music then getting good at it. It takes you to the next level and it's growth!

    Here's mine for this week. Guitars are entirely the Elysian Trident II (with the exception of the second 'clean' part), including the part where I use a slide for the first time ever - and make SRV roll over in his grave...


    LOVE that guitar sound. Ultra tight yet really aggressive.

    AWESOME mix of doomy sludge with haunting melody. I love it.

    I like this one a lot, thrashy and focused. A few sections would benefit from more tailored drum patterns IMO, but we all know what a pain the ass programming them is. Incidentally, the guitar I used for this week's LAW in also fitted with Elysian pickups, I think they're Trident IIs as well. I'm going to use it for next week's SAW.

    Here's my SAW entry. Same tuning as last week, I started out with all the same settings but somehow didn't like the mix at all Overall not quite as happy with this one, but any week that a song actually gets done is a good one. Last week the low E was new to me so like 95% of that song was low chugs, so in this week's entry I tried to get away from that. In the coming weeks I think I'll try to write some instrumental stuff, doing vocals takes me longer than writing+recording all the rest easily
