I imagine a bunch of gray aliens dancing at an 80's style party. Then a gray alien with sunglasses walks in, and this song starts playing as he makes his way into the room in slow motion, all the others staring in awe and admiration.

Right when the song ends, he turns his head back while flipping the sunglasses down.

Lol.

I finally finished my first full length song. I built it around a single riff I made back in high school that I always called 'the hair metal riff'. All of the lead guitar parts and harmonies were created and produced tonight in one sitting. It just poured right out.

Some really good stuff in this thread.  MedicTJ is UM's very own resident guitar god!

Here's a few of my messings abouts. nothing serious just having a bit of fun with my guitars and computer.  If anyone wants to throw some of thier own noises over the top of them feel free to do so.  I apologise for my sloppy playing.  I just press record, play and see what comes out, then add tracks over the top.

I could think of no other person to put vocals to the first one other than Billy Corgan. It would be a perfect match.

I just might be able to make it happen. I'll be back!

Ah, someone's been hiding their light under a bushel! Had no idea you were so versatile, excellent recording.

I really enjoyed all four. 'Flight of the Space Monkey' has such a wonderful drifty feel to it.  And 'Soaring High'... wow.... that tune's soaked in pure Floyd! Well done!

The awkward silence would seem to suggest my last recording was somewhat weaker than I realized. My apologies.

This is starting to hurt my feelings so I probably won't be posting anything else. Sorry if I wasted your time.

I admit I didn't listen to the songs until now, as I've been busy with my own selfish interests the past few days, but I like the sound you create. The first reminds me of Type O Negative a bit, but the second is classic Barnabas. I sat here for a fe wminutes trying to find a word to describe how I see it and almost gave up, until the perfect word hit me: macabre! Then I looked up macabre, and it sounds a bit dark, so I change it to light hearted grim songs, with a tinge of mystery and suspense.

I hope that description makes sense, as I feel satisfied that I was able to find the words to translate my listening experience.

I noticed the drums were very good, but being a drummer, I would always imagine how these songs would sound with my individual drumming style stapled to it. If there is any way to get a copy of your tracks without drums, I would love to take a stab at recording to them. I have been gaining a bit of confidence with the drums as these months have passed.

Here's an example of a collaboration I've done this past month with someone who saw my videos on YouTube. He offered me to add some drums to his song.

His old demo:



And our collaboration:



Doing this kind of stuff is fun, and I am game if you are.

Not everyone comments around here, Barnabas. That doesn't mean we don't enjoy your music. I find your music interesting. Don't give up posting here!

I love them. Good work. And I agree with Star. Personally, I never/rarely check music threads. I just clicked on your profile and saw your posts. But yeah...awesome work there. I would love to hear more.
