Which is ironic- I far prefer the music, and don't like doing the lyrics!

We should collaborate...

Personally I can do lyrics if I have a specific topic to write about, but I'm definitely in the 'the music is the fun part' camp

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

Nice work Holey! I got around to listening to the first half and it sounds really great. The instrumentation and harmonies all sound as good as anything I’ve heard from you. Never knew you were that good of a keyboard player. You should be really proud of putting out a collection of songs like that by yourself.

Cheers swr! apple01

I'm not that great of a keyboard player... I thoroughly recommend multiple takes to anyone recording anything!

I'm the first to admit I'm rarely in tune even 80% of the time lol - brilliant is definitely not a word I'd use to describe my singing, but I'm glad the texture works.

  

As long as you're in tune with everything else, that's all that matters. 440Hz is arbitrary and some artists like Bon Scott era AC/DC, Pantera, and Van Halen intentionally tune a quarter step down. And when it comes to unintentionally being tuned sharp or flat, many of the greats, including The Beatles, are guilty of that.

Forumpudlians, a plea:

I recently sent The Hole Got Fixed a selection of lyrics, with the agreement that he would add music to them, mirroring how Bernie Taupin and Elton John have collaborated since the late 60s.

I was wondering if any other talented musicians fancied having a go at collaborating in the same manner? If you are, perhaps you can send a private message stating your intentions.

A few notes:

I generally have an idea for a melody when I write the lyrics, though some are often written as poems so the melody can often be an afterthought to.

I'm happy for you to rearrange/modify the lyrical content to fit the arrangement you come up with, providing the context remains the same. I believe James Dean Bradfield would do this with Richey Edwards' lyrics should the album notes of Journal For Plague Lovers be used as evidence.

I look forward to working with you.

Cool idea for a thread :):).

Here’s my SoundCloud. I don’t have very much of a specific genre and I joined very recently but:

I've just listened to your two tracks @ThatWeirdBeatlesGirl - both very good in their own way, though I thought Windowsill was slightly off-tempo sometimes. Opening was a complete revelation though, I loved the bass/drum rhythm throughout it.

Only just got around to listening now - that's some really good stuff there. Fantastic grooves there, both of them - I was digging them both, and yeah there were a few small timing issues but when I'm digging a groove I don't care that much! Would love to hear more
