AKA it's just random noise AKA it sounds like I threw the guitar down the wall of the Grand Canyon. :kerry:

I think that quote is the entire text of the book "Kerry King Leads For Dummies" :lol:

Good job!

I see I'm not the only adolescent that ducked neighbors/security/cops while making mischief and experienced this exact thing :lol:

Cool track. There's a theme chaos this week.

Great melody. Would like to hear this expanded upon.

Okay, since I couldn't get points for another SAW this week, I decided to put the bass lines on this one.

Cool tune as usual. Your mixes have definitely come along great.

I like the overall melancholy vibe and the build up to the end. Would make a good transition into a heavier track.

Needed more pick trills. :)
And whammy bar, but all I've got here is a strat trem :(

The ~2 step bend about 7/8th through, next note after that was fretted on the neck pickup slug which was fun.

I didn't get started on my tune until yesterday. I had a vocal melody stuck in my head and this is one of the rare times I've written an entire song around vocal melodies. Tracked all the music yesterday, spent about 3 hours stuck on programming triplets in Logic's piano roll that had me banging my fuckin' head on the desk until I figured out how to do it. Heading into the studio now to do the vocals then I post it when I'm done. Looks like we've got a good amount of submissions this week....the only positive thing to come from the fucking coronavirus!

Edit-

Just wrapped up vocals....or at least went until my throat took a shit. I haven't sang in forever and while I didn't need to take 100 takes of each line, after doing the chorus a few times I was toast. The only one I don't take issue with is the last one. There's some mix issues I don't dig, I think it's overall compressed a little too hard, but for 12 hours total from start to finish, I've done worse. As I said, this was written around the vocals, I didn't spend a lot of time going on a musical adventure. Started singing it in my car on the way home from work, made a voice note to myself in my phone and worked from there. This surprisingly came out exactly how I was hearing it in my head, well, at least 98% of the way.



There are no keyboards on this, that intro is 6 tracks of acoustics and what sounds like keys is some synth presets in the AxeFX.

Ugh. Here's my turd of the week-



Despite actually writing the riff, I couldn't get a decent recording of the intro riff. The one here was recorded at 75% of the normal tempo. The idea is a finger picked riff ala Jackyl "Down on Me" / Dokken "It's Not Love". Oh well. On to next week..

Gadddamnit, the multi-quote ain't workin' for me.

Brian, that was thrasfuckingtastic!!!!

Budda, for some reason I can hear that in a movie soundtrack, like a Guy Ritchie flick. I dig the progressions throughout it.

Ion1, fuck yeah, I dig the mix on this one more than your usual contributions, I can hear everything better. Love that bit at the end with the alarm clock slowing down!

Randy, glad to be hearing a longer contribution than your previous one! Definitely some KK things at the end, but who, aside from Gilmour, can solo for that long and keep coming up with fresh shit?!

Markus, really dug that one and it's nice to hear some variation in these. Metal is always good, but so is variation. Really dug the buildup towards the end.

Bohmer, that was fucking slick. It thought it was gonna be a straight stoner tune then it thrashed up. Fuckin a right. Video was a good addition. My wife picked up a nice camera for doing make-up vids on YouTube and it was my intention to film the making of my tune but started without setting up a *** and by the time I remembered it would have been me editing drums for the duration.

Totally stoked about the consistency of contributions this round!! We're all going to have an album to release when this is done.

That totally reminded me of something I'd find on Sevendust's Animosity album (which is in my top 15 favorite albums) mixed with a little modern feel. Sick as usual!

If nothing else good comes from this coronavirus thing, it's certainly brought us way more awesome SAW/CAW/LAW submissions than ever before. Way to go guys!

For sure!

I'm doing a collaboration for my submission this week. My best friend and favorite drummer in the world lives in Nashville, we're going to write a song via Facetime/sending files back and forth. Definitely won't be a metal tune like I've been doing, most definitely it'll be a heavy blues thing. It'll be nice to have real drums on a song for once!
