    This really amazed me in so many ways :eek:

    I really hate "writing" music. Not writing music, I love that, "writing" music. Not "writing" as in creating something, actually writing it down in a computer program like Sibellius or with pen and paper. On stuff that is just guitar and bass it's no big deal. I just remember how to play it...

  4. General Music Discussion
    There have been a number of discussions since I've been a member here regarding the writing process - by individual experience. So, I'd like to carry on a deep, long-held, tradition of acting as though I've never seen anything on the subject. I'm in the process of writing music - and I don't...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Here's my approach to writing guitars solos. Once I have the backing tracks finished I just improvise repeatedly until I find something that makes me go "ah!!! that was good", then I take that detail and build the rest of the solo around that. However, I didn't manage to pull off anything...

    Does anyone here have any experience writing a browser extension/plug-in? I have a fairly simple idea that I think would work well for a plug-in, but have zero knowledge about creating one. I want a plug-in that will scan the page (probably through the source code) for any youtube links, and...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi everyone! Hope this is the right forum. Anyway, listening to the stuff i've been writing as of late (if anyone is interested in taking a listen for critique purposes: MaruMartinez | Free Listening on SoundCloud) i've noticed a lack of cohesiveness between what i'm playing on guitar and the...

    If "The Crown" isn't your answer to "Which metal band is still writing songs worthy of being legend post 1990?" you are misinformed. It's a hard call whether Deathrace King or Crowned in Terror is better. Lately I've been on a DK kick.
  9. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Been meaning to start a thread on this for some time, and finally got off my arse to do it! This is a bit of a difficult topic to pin down, but hopefully we can all provide a bit of insight and some tips that will help us when it comes to writing solos that'll maybe help if you're a bit stuck...
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm looking for suggestions on how to better write my own riffs, songs etc. in guitar tablature. Presently I'm doing it manually using pre printed copies of plain tab forms off the internet. Problem is at 12 staffs per page I have to write so small it is difficult to read. Size and clarity of my...
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hello, So I was visiting my father today and he is arranging tunes for classical guitar and he wants to make sheet music. What options are out there? He has a PC laptop and an ipad. As an aside he is the only person I know who has self taught himself calculus, Japanese and the guitar...

    Hey guys, I've been writing a lot the past few months (poetry, song lyrics, short stories, etc.), and started a site to post a few pieces. I guess it can fill the void before my acoustic album comes out (which will likely be a while since I only have an index finger). Check it out if you...
  13. General Music Discussion
    I am posting this here instead of the theory threads because I believe it has more to do with notion of concept and not actual music theory. I have found that for me I can learn material way faster than if I sit down and try to write something from scratch. Here is the part that is my main...

    After listening to Sylosis's first album a bunch and going on a Sepultura and other thrash bands kick, I thought I'd have a crack at writing something in that style. On the one hand, it's going back to my roots. On the other hand, I'm so not a metaller these days, that it feels kind of odd. The...
  15. General Music Discussion
    Ever notice that vocal lines played on an instrument are boring? They're often like the same few notes over and over again. When you hear a singer doing that, it's not boring (well, sometimes it is, depending on the song). But if you were to do that on guitar? YAWN. Maybe it's the different...
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    If any of you guys are around tomorrow, I'll be doing a live writing session via UStream. I'll go into how I write/record at home etc. There are a few sections from my next record that I'll be working on and looping the FUCK out of lol. After bouts of excitement, depression, then more...
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi, I have been very structured with my practicing, i.e. I have a fixed routine of exercises, etc. I run through every day. That usually leaves no time for writing/recording on week days, so I only work on writing and recording on weekends. Lately I have been tailoring my practice routine a...
  18. General Music Discussion
    Okay, so i have written plenty of guitar pieces, and i can play keyboard, bass and sing. But i cannot play drums, or own a set of drums so therefore cannot record any drum tracks. Anyone got any ideas how i could make a great sounding song without drums or some method of getting drums?
