Man this thread makes me wish I was in a serious band again. Haven't played with anybody else since college and I'm ten times the guitarist I was back then.

Taekwondoin, do you have any solo work? I'm constantly looking out for new music for my radio show, so if you have anything you can link me to, I'd be happy to play it on air :)

I haven't I'm afraid. Though I'm buying myself a Line 6 pod this week, so give me a couple of weeks and hopefully I'll have some stuff to send you!

Excellent! Send me a PM when you've got something and I'll add you into the show!
In the meantime, feel free to listen in to the show - runs 9pm-Midnight on Tuesdays (Australian Central Standard Time) and you can live stream from www.bbbfm.com :)


I've recently taken to recording my busking sets from various farmers markets and other places. Below is a cover of Machine Gun Fellatio's The Girl Of My Dreams, recorded at the Adelaide Hills Market, which I played on my show last week. Pretty fun cover.

Christ guys, I'm trying to record for the first time in years. I have songs, but because they're completely instrumental at the minute, I'm being far too pretentious and perfectionist about everything. Do any of you do this when you're trying to get some stuff down? Surely I just need to relax and let my fingers do the talking...

But dude, that's because I like my shit messy and never make anything perfect. It's a stylistic choice as much as it's about competence.

depends on whether or not you're doing overdubs. if no, fuck it, just get your ideas down in a form where you can access them later without relying on your own memory. if yes, well, that's a little different of a story, but there are such things as demos.

This is the main problem I'm having, I also want mine to be messy and dirty and grungey, I'll have another go today and see if I can chill out a bit more

I have been trying to do the overdubs, and that's part of what's causing me problems, but even with the rhythm part I'm being overly prissy and perfect about it. I think I need to realise that these things are for me, they're not going to be heard by anyone else any time soon, so I should just chill out.

The worst thing is it's now making me question myself as a guitarist, I'm by no means amazing on the thing, but I know how to play the way I like to play, and I sit and come up with my own things more often than I sit and try to learn the solo from Paranoid.

Albums take like a million takes of every track to get done. That's why it's always such a big deal when a band says 'we did it live in one take!' Which is most likely bullshit most of the time anyway. Not being able to get it done in one is nothing to do with musical competence. I can do perfect single takes of my songs all the time... until the red light's on, and then I screw up left right and centre because of the pressure, just like I sing better when I'm drunk in a club than I do onstage because I'm in DGAF mode and so I just let my throat open and the words fly.

My personal record for "most takes required to complete a song" is 106 or 107 (took me at least 6 hours and I swore a lot), and it was for the bass line to this song. The most irksome thing I've ever experienced was getting the finalized masters for it and discovering that the part right at the end of the 2nd verse got cut by accident. How in the actual fuck does a mistake like that happen in the digital age? And to be totally fair and honest, this song is not perfect.

Still, I'm incredibly proud of this recording, and all my contributions to this song specifically. It brings me back to the whole 3 days we spent on this song alone. My bandmate had kinda dropped out of the song a little bit emotionally by time we'd recorded it (he got over his feelings for the situation that inspired it) and it had become a lot more relevant for my life due to things that transpired during the recording process. Kabir wrote the song and did lead vocals and the acoustic guitar track, and I either tracked or wrote every single other individual instrument/vocal part of the song.

It's been almost 2 years, and in that amount of time, I regret less the minor imperfections, and more the fact I can't ever make it out to Berkeley like I used to in order to go jam and record with somebody with whom I have done work I'm still just as proud of as the day we called that album done.

So stop being so hard on myself? It was so much more fun with bandmates I have to say.

shit, thanks! I can't say the whole thing is quite as good as that one (I feel like we got rushed in a number of ways in the final steps), but there's some that I'm damn proud of. "Slacker's Jaw" is probably my favorite. we used just our voices, guitars+amps, stomps and claps, and a weed grinder, and it sounds more like the real deal than some of the stuff we kinda half-assed with more conventional rock instrumentation. second favorite is the one linked before, and then "Bittern Suite" and "A.H" tie for 3rd.

Having listened to it a few times, I can agree with what you said, Rust really does stand out to me as a great track, not that any of the album feels like filler or is bad in anyway, it's actually brilliantly coherent and consistent. It really reminds me of Oh, inverted World by The Shins, in that I love listening to the whole album, but my ears always prick up when Pressed In A Book starts playing, it just has a certain something that catches me out and I love it.

Altogether, you should be proud of the album for sure. And now I need to start listening to Troubadour a bit more.

You should definitely listen to more Troubador. Particularly West Texas. On Repeat.

Seriously, it's one of my favourite songs of all time now.

Thanks! I am definitely proud of it, and I agree that there's lots of good ideas on there. I just think that for all Kabir's incredible creative talents, he could stand to be a little more patient during the recording process. I feel like some truly excellent songs (Headband Dream, Good Feels, and most of all Rotten Rotten Me) are marred by some very avoidable slop that I just can't get over, for some reason which is inextricably related to my obsessive perfectionism. In some of the newer demos he's showed me, though, his overdubs fit a lot tighter than ever before. Maybe me bitching at him like a nagging spouse to use a metronome finally sunk in. ;)

And feel free to listen to whatever of mine you want, you'll hear nothing but thanks from me. Y'all are too kind.  :psyduck:

So I've been doing a fair few covers recently for my radio show, one of which is from Patrick's band Troubador - I covered their song Sunday Morning, and to be honest, I think it's one of the best one-takes I've ever done:
https://app.box.com/s/l61ycih0bjd698cvus2c

Also last night my band did a one-take of Bloodbuzz Ohio by The National, which I am incredibly happy about.

Still trying to write some more originals, particularly lyrics - i'm almost tempted to go full on Cream and just have random lines that make no sense ('but the rainbow has a beard' et al)

I hope you're partly tempted because I keep trying to get you to do it. I wrote one of my absolute best songs that way and I'm working on another one where I plan on doing that. You can always rewrite the lyrics later, at least get a vocal melody in there.

And sometimes the words take on more meaning than they first appear ('she's eating her fingers like they're just another meal') and sometimes you find transcendent lines in amongst the wreckage ('you're the kind of girl I like because you're empty and I'm empty').

Likewise. Chad, it probably goes without saying by now, but I appreciate the fuck out of your band and your collective efforts. Please don't ever stop.

Tonight I got drunk and decided to write a song about an airliner I watched as it passed over my hometown. And it reminded me of my dad, who is aging a year per month, it seems. So I decided to write about the airplane, and my feelings regarding my relationship with my pops just decided to show up out of nowhere. I got lucky tonight.

Anyway, here's a rough demo of the song, and since the recording quality is POTATO~~~ the lyrics follow below, spoilered for the tidiness of the thread:

I have nothing better to do with my time than to make a mockery of the greatest song ever written

Where'd this go? This being From the Hips.

I took it down because I was running out of space on my Soundcloud, and that wasn't my best work, so it got axed. I've put it on my box.com account for you, here you go: https://app.box.com/s/0jh535l313qh5s2l6qpr

Damn it patrick, you continually astound me with how you're not famous yet

Thanks! Truth told though, I have little interest in becoming terribly famous. Been there, done that, stole the t-shirt and left the country.

thanks for the killer jams, Chad. we may be trying to hit Los Angeles sometime this summer to play with a local band there, and the commute for your band and mine would be pretty similar. I'll be in touch with a good bit of notice when the time comes. I'd love to play with y'all and I definitely wanna see/chill with Babes again. you'd like them, musically and personally, I'm pretty sure of that.

So my girlfriend got me a uke and I love it, but they're a bit en vogue these days. Every motherfucker has a uke. And they all do the same shit. Twee indie love songs or ironic covers.

So I did a murder ballad.

This is the full version.

This is one where my vox are accompanied only by uke and the guitar solo in the middle.

Here are the lyrics.

@Gaz, do you mind if I play that one on my show tonight? It's fantastic.

I may or may not have mentioned earlier that I recently covered a song by Pat's band Troubador. I'm pretty damn pleased with it.

And because I can, I did an instrumental version of one of the Greatest Songs Of All Time. Enjoy.

I recently wrote a new song called "Mr. Heath" about a person who I believe is seriously the biggest shitbaby piece of garbage in this whole godforsaken world, and you can listen to it here.

Um.  I'm a bit of a music curmudgeon/ignoramus, but wow there is some serious talent in this thread.  I am blown away.

I agree, we've got a lot of great folks around here. And since I post a lot of stuff in here, I'll go ahead and thank you for a hell of a compliment.

I sang backing vocals and did a bit of production on this, and I also played bass.

In true KingOfIreland style, I've uploaded half finished recordings.
I think that with a drummer and a bassist we might have a decent sort thing here

Sometimes, I look at someone playing the guitar, and I think to myself "man, if I ever learned, I'd probably never stop playing"
