    That was an idea that never made it into my thrash band, so it'll be in Eb. Key starts in Fm then moves to Ebm IIRC.

    Good stuff. If I could actually play a lead I'd be all over that.

    I’m taking off from work a bit early today as I’ve been cooped up in my office all week and I’m going stir crazy. I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining to be at work as I know people are stuck doing the same thing in their homes without pay right now, but it’s also a bit of a burden to have to expose myself daily when I can do 98% of my job from home...while playing my guitar.

    Had some really cool inspiration when I started this one, then the week sucked the life outta me, hence the title...

    File this under "give me my 10 points so I can move on"...

    Did a partial LAW, as I warned of last week Would rather stick with doing a finite section I feel like I can "write" something for as opposed to a minute and a half of noodling. Matt also made it especially hard with all those damn chord changes

    One take. Right before the sweeps sounds choppy like a punch because I couldn't get a uniform resolve before that, so i just paused. Panning and volume done in post obv. EDIT: Feedback is an Ebow in 'harmonic mode'

    Hard to be inspired every week. There's definitely some nice ideas there anyway, almost death-doom like.

    The ebow stuff is really cool, I've been considering a sustainer/sustainiac to be able to do those.


    I'm working on more doom - trying to do some vocals as well, but writing lyrics isn't really my thing.

    Thanks. I bought the ebow to go with the fretless build I posted some time ago (haven't done much with it though). Most of the ebow work is inspired by Fountainhead but this particular track was kinda inspired by the solo from 'Motherload' by Mastodon.

    Inability to write lyrics was actually one of the main hurdles I had in songwriting. There was a thread I posted on here that was very therapeutic and opening myself up to lyric writing went a long way toward unsticking my music writing overall. I find that the same internal critic that is overly critical of lyrics is the same internal critic that slows the songwriting process. Food for thought.

    I've got a mountain of ideas over the last few years and even made some progress on recording them (2 to 3 albums worth!) I just moved in the last year and haven't had an adequate recording station since then. Would like to contribute some full songs or pieces if I can resolve my workflow.
