I agree, the whole part about not noticing change is needed is quite inspiring. The Gadsden flag is a nice visual touch that drives the message home. 

 

Nice guitar playing and vocal work.

[To ASJ, whose post I didn't notice was on the last page and had posts in between - if I'd used a ^ that would have been some kind of massive clusterFiddy a-hard-days-night-paul-10]

I filmed that outside at night (my folks were asleep) so that is in my screened porch and the flag is just outside. Hope that clears things up.

Lol... if that's what it means to you, then I've succeeded. I certainly know what it means to me, but I tried to make it general enough to allow both sides to think it's about the other side... ahdn_george_06

I'm very much not a fan of overtly political artwork in general, because I think what art does best is express the personal, not political, and it's more effective when taking inspiration from politics and current events is to use those ideas as springboards to talk about larger themes of morality and human nature. Not sure I'm at that meta, Pink Floyd-esque* level yet but I'm certainly not going to start to try and reach for those heights by singing about CNN or Trump by name. ahdn_paul_01

Political art is a risky business, since it seems to generally come across as either brilliant and insightful or just self-absorbed. Like, on the one hand you have 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised', and on the other you have 'American Idiot' (seriously Green Day, you had the quagmire that was the Bush Jr administration on your hands and the best you could come up with was that?).

I think Nasty was being a bit tongue-in-cheek. Still thinks it a good song though, very nice Everlys' riff...

I love that @Dark Overlord. That HIAWG re-interpretation is extremely well done. If you want my opinion overall I think it's a very solid project. Not that I know a lot about classical, but hey, you got my attention. The percussion is probably your main flaw. Get some plug-ins, make them drums sound less artificial.

Nice work. @Dark Overlord You were able to pull off some complicated harmony with pretty natural voice leading. I really enjoy how you interpreted Everything Is Fine

On both of those songs, i used a string quartet plus an acoustic guitar doing (mostly) arpeggios, which i think adds some really nice texture.

As for the drums, all instruments are straight from MuseScore and while The Hole Got Fixed was able to use the regular drum set on Rhapsody Of Horror, i was unable to properly do multiple notes simultaneously using that setting so i scored the drums individually, using the tambourine for the hi-hat.

Turned out well!paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

In terms of getting better (all the time) I do agree with Jules, that finding a better drum sound would help.

Also, it does get a little repetitive at times - some subtle variation would do wonders.

Great sounding piece @Dark Overlord ! I like how you fused together almost gothic sounding dark sections and more happy snippets of melody. If I could offer one piece of constructive criticism, it would be to lose the drums, they make it sound like a great classical piece played over a rock beat which isn't the best combination. A cymbal here and there would add to the drama nicely, but the kick drum, clapping and more straightforward beats messed up the tone a little, in my opinion. Still, it's a great composition, and I'm looking forward to hearing the second side when I get around to it.

Inspired as I always am whenever there's new music in this thread, I've uploaded a song written and recorded this morning. Nothing special, just guitar and vocals, but I hope you enjoy! 

Edit: just finished another track so I thought I would share it, this is a shoegaze/noise-pop track. Another fairly crappy vocal, but I'm quite pleased with the instrumental and the lyrics so I kept it in.

I'm glad you liked it. As for the drums, that's kind of what i was going for. I wanted an orchestral sound with a modern twist, to distinct the piece from other contemporary classical pieces.

QM, those are some very paul-mccartney-thumb_giftracks there! The guitars especially are spot on what i think you were going for. Rock on!

@QuarryMan Outstanding as usual. Hold On to the Little Things specifically I thought was a fantastically written piece. It sounds Bowie-esque in its progression and its low-key aspect (and short runtime) turn it more personal. Nice badge! a-hard-days-night-paul-5
