Excellent tune! I love how the  lyrics are kinda meta..meta... like you're talking about the contest inside the contest, This is the first one, hope you'll come through,

I've always want to use that chord like you do in the verse, never could make it sound right for me though, you made it work though.
Posted by TomS on Feb. 02 2010, 11:21 PM
Which chord is that?  G major?   :laugh:

Two more today...had a long afternoon...but I could have spent a lot more time making them sound nice...well, they are what they are...

Here are numbers 2 and 3 – sorry about the low production, but time is of the essence...  

Strong Suspicion:

No more 'till Friday... ???

Man you're recording them faster than I can get time to hear'em, I absolutely love the chorus to 7th Day, Susupicion is another amazing tune, hey, when you say the sound quality, did you skimp on the original tracks or you just didn't work with the mixdown etc? Any chance, later on, like when this crazy contest is over, you/we can clean em up and get a nice shiny mix out of it??? Don't get me wrong, I love the songs, just wondering if you would eventually want to get'em all sparkled up.?

Anyway, great tunes!

Number 4!  I personally like this one a lot. Is that OK to say of one's own music?   :laugh:

"Sonny's Beer and Wine":

Doubtless. Go Tom.

Go Tom  :agree:

Get them lyrics up tho!!!!!

Still on number 3: < http://www.fawm.org/fawmers/spreadercraig >
Posted by TomS on Feb. 06 2010, 2:19 AM
I refuse to post lyrics.  Here's why.  I read an interview ages ago with the Cocteau Twins.  They made up "words" to fit the melody.  Entirely nonsensical, and entirely powerful.  I use mostly English words, but they are written to fit the line - so that the phonemes and syllables "open up" when the line requires it, and "close down" when the line requires it.  Funny thing is, folks find actual coherence in the lyrics, when they are largely "automatic writing."  In any case, they are meant to be heard in context, not read separately.  I think poetry should never be published in written form or (if it has to be) read silently (unless that's what the author intended).  It should always be declaimed.  Same thing.

Number 5 - 6 and 7 are in the pipeline, but they don't seem to want to finish themselves...

"Hear the Amplifier Buzz":

Posted by TomS on Feb. 07 2010, 7:35 PM
There is now a #6, although it is not the intended one, and this is pretty much a throwaway, written for a Fawmer yclept "Happy Atheist":

< http://fawm.org/songs/2196/ >

Posted by TomS on Feb. 14 2010, 8:36 PM
Here's number 10, although it could have been 16 or so, but the intervening attempts were too too too lame...

"If You Don't Like It":

< http://cookiefinger.bandcamp.com/track/if-you-dont-like-it >

:)
Posted by TonyR on Feb. 14 2010, 10:06 PM

It's just as good on this forum.   :D

Ain't it just?  :laugh:
Posted by TomS on Feb. 19 2010, 3:59 AM
This is really number 17 or so, but the last few have been really poor, and this is the best of a bad lot, so...

OK, one bonus one for you slackers who are not posting squat.

Calling Any Muses:

< http://cookiefinger.bandcamp.com/track/calling-any-muses >
Posted by TonyR on Feb. 22 2010, 12:29 AM
Nicely, Tom. 'Not Sorry Now' buzzed round the house, from my craptop, and created a spontanious jig.
Posted by spreadercraig on Feb. 22 2010, 12:44 AM
Tom!! Well done matey...I knew you would breeze through it  :agree:

I should get time next week to actually listen.

Awesome man  :)
Posted by TomS on Feb. 22 2010, 2:04 AM
Just listen to "Calling Any Muses" - it's really the only one worth listening to.  

When do we get to hear your radio appearance?   :agree:
Posted by pingcat on Feb. 22 2010, 2:38 AM
Yeah TomS, another great batch.  And yeah, your last bonus one (Calling), is the one, that says it all.  Thanks.
Posted by TomS on Feb. 22 2010, 5:49 PM
No, thank you guys for actually listening and being so nice.  

TODAY IS A SNOW DAY!!!  :D

:laugh:

"The End of Everything":

All Hail Burr Settles! :agree:
Posted by teryeah on Feb. 28 2010, 3:11 AM
Hah! Put on your Big Star hat again? Short & sweet  :)
Posted by TomS on Feb. 28 2010, 3:27 AM
Going from the root to the V of V is the Big Star thing...  :)

But there are no strats on this, only the PRS with soapbars, so it don't qualify!  So there!  :)
