9214 Post stuff that you made
Here is a dumb cover thing that I did, unfinished but I stopped working on it and figured that this wouldn't set the bar too high for the rest of you lads.

I wish to summon Ciderbeard Joe to this thread to share with us any further strokes of genius he's had in recent years. "I Am Joe's Wasted Life" has been a fairly constant feature in my playlist.

Best of a bad bunch, from when I wanted to be the next deadmau5.

What really gets me is that I know a lot more about both music theory and production now, and play the piano much better, but I haven't actually finished a track in a year or more.

I know that one. For me the more I learn, the more I'm convinced everything I make is trite and worthless. I think the key is to just keep going anyway though. As a famous photographer said, your first 10,000 photographs are your worst. I'm sure that applies to our first 100 or so tracks.

I used to enjoy a bit of music dabbling, but it was an escapism. Putting in the energy now to actually finish a song and not just potter around with an 8 bars loop of ideas seems like a real graft.

I didn't make this - I wish I could've, but it only has 62 plays so I'm going to link it anyway.

This sounds like it could be the intro music to one of those "for women" vids on PornHub with the soft lighting and a 5 minute cunnilingus closeup.

A couple of chaps here liked it the last time I did this sort of thing, so here you are.


I've been working on my production techniques, with the goal of finding effective ways to capture polished guitar tone for lazy artists who can't really be bothered.

A mate and I made this using an old, broken clock from the 20s. The chimes in it make really nice sounds.

I know several of these are old now but I'm in need of a diversion this morning so I thought I'd give some feedback. Obviously this is all just my taste and the production suggestions are not meant to be taken as objective feedback, they're just what would work for me.

Most of the lead on this sounds more like a Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmour solo than Hendrix to me. I like it, anyway, tight recording. Possibly a little over-polished, hence the other lad/lass comment about it sounding like porn music. >>10442 is much better in this regard - a good combination of things in the mix and all well-levelled, and properly processed without sounding plastic. The work you've put into your production techniques between the two is evident.

Vocals are too clean; could possibly benefit from some reverb, and then compressor/EQing. The guitar is slightly out of tune and isn't particularly well-captured, which can be endearing for this kind of music, but at least needs some more treble to give it some more definition to bring it back into the mix (this has probably been lost in recording, so something to work on next time), and definitely less clipping. For this kind of thing, ideally you'd mic different parts of the guitar from a reasonable distance (neck for the higher frequencies, body for the lower, and not necessarily the sound hole, counter-intuitively - you'll get booming, like a mic without a baffle) and play around with the resulting tracks afterwards, but even if you continue using what you've got, turn it down some to get a cleaner output and adjust it back up in the mix. Bottom line, remember that you can generally make a cleanly-recorded acoustic guitar sound more "raw" with a bit of post-processing, but a bad recording is basically stuck like that. The clock chimes are also too piercing for my taste -they contrast sharply with the muffled guitar- but that at least is easily fixed.

Excellent bit of punk. Appropriately grungy, short, and offensive with a bit of self-aware wit; not much to add. (You're doing the opposite of refuting post-modernism, though, incidentally. Maybe I'm missing the joke.)

Thanks for the feedback lad, even if it has been so long that I forgot about posting either track. I'm glad you picked up the Gilmour vibe too, that's pretty much exactly what I was going for.

>The work you've put into your production techniques between the two is evident.

What you're hearing there is actually a stark demonstration of the difference between digital amp modelling, and a real valve amp properly mic'd up. I've been at this for years, but I live in a first floor flat, so sometimes "silent recording" is my only option.


I got a decent chuckle out of this one. Very nice gritty vocals I must say. Do I detect perhaps a touch of Half Man Half Biscuit?

I know it's been a couple of months, but the thing was recorded on, then hastily mastered on, a cheap Aldi headset in an echoey loft.

The guitar is tuned to the chimes, hence why it's out of tune.

I've finally got time to sit down with my monitors and have another go.

Here's a (more, I'm not an audio expert) properly mastered version:

Just finished this track today. I'm not very good at mixing and still trying to find my original sound/niche. Really appreciate any listens or feedback though.

>trap rap with death metal/black metal screams, super edgy lyrics, and a few samples of dialog from The Sopranos
