So I don't post songs on here much, obviously. I write a lot more than what I actually post on here. Right now since the last one i posted I've had about 5 songs written at least somewhat. I also had songs done long before that. I'm planning on releasing maybe 3 of these songs, but definitely 2 of them. The others I either don't like, can't finish the lyrics, or can't finish the music. I'll put the lyrics to the songs I probably won't record here and give the background for each
The first one I got an idea for back in May where I came up with a guitar intro. I came up with a chorus but never had any ideas for it until June when my two best friends ditched me and I ended up miserable because of it (Tired is basically the angrier version of this one). The lyrics can be found here: https://pastebin.com/cHh5B1Bu
The second song I wrote back in November. Back in October my friend informed me that they liked me. Our main friend group and some others were shipping us, but I didn't really know if I wanna do it. It gets to November and a ridiculously awkward conversation about this happened and I still didn't know if I wanted to go through with it. I guess with how this song is going it was more of a no. Well I didn't end up releasing this one because 1, I honestly don't like it that much anymore (as you can see I was struggling at that second verse). The 2nd reason? Well three days after I started this song, I ended up saying yes. So it ended up losing its relevance anyway. Lyrics for this one are here: https://pastebin.com/ahEhmJRV
Finally, this song was written in March when school was out for 4 days due to a blizzard. Before I explain what actually happened, one thing to know about me is I am not always good at dealing with serious situations. Especially if I don't understand what it's like. The best example of a situation like this would be a sick/dying relative. This situation is actually the one that comes into play for this song. Over these 4 days the person from the previous song brought up this situation. I didn't handle it remotely well, I basically ended up going into hiding after receiving the texts. The second night it came up again in a group chat and yes, I hid again. I ended up with a series of texts at like 3 AM saying I don't give a shit about their problems blah blah (For the record I do care I am just bad at showing it). I still hate myself for all of this, and this song was written saying how I'm still not that great of a person even though I've gotten better. I was planning on releasing this and actually started recording it, but I got busy and now that this song has sat around for 2 months I'm starting to notice the lyrics aren't as good as they were when I first wrote the song (I was probably just excited I was finally getting an idea for a full song). The lyrics for this one can be found here: https://pastebin.com/ci4aqGL8
That's everything for now. I want to record my three songs soon, but I might have to wait until the summer when I have more time to do it.
Don't even ask about the title it's pretty much just an inside joke on who this ended up being about. Besides I figured just naming it "Grow Up" or something like that would be boring. Anyways, new song:
Ok so maybe I lied when I said it wouldn't take me another 5 months to post again. Actually since my last post it's been a literal year. Sorry I couldn't upload anything else but in all honestly up until May of this year I couldn't finish a song. I had ideas right after Inner Monologue but either couldn't come up with lyrics or could only think up a small amount of them. Those songs may be finished one day, but after these two songs I'm kinda out of ideas for full songs. Well I do know what I want to write about next it's just a matter of actually being able to do it. For now here's two new songs
The first one is called "Plot Twist" which is about my other group of internet friends suddenly confessing shit all in the course of a few weeks or something (and the first verse TOTALLY isn't about me, what the fuck are you talking about that's such an unwarranted accusation)
The second song is called "Tired" which is essentially me being done with people's shit
Ok so as the title says, I'm gonna do one of those Jos/Homecoming songs. Well, maybe not that long. More like Blood and Blisters by Hearts At War long. I've got the intro part done (the spoiler) and a verse and chorus of part 2 done. Here's the guitar pro of Part I called Intro to Frustration https://soundcloud.com/walkingc0ntradicti0n/medley-song-preview
I think i promised lyrics in the New Year blog so here we go. The first one is Not Like Them which is.. y'know what fuck it read the lyrics and figure it out yourself:
The other song is The Screw You Song, dedicated to all my enemies
If you've seen all the uploads on my Youtube channel, you would've noticed a video called Summer Project 2012. If you didn't, it's at the absolute very bottom of my uploads.
After two years of guitar lessons, I got added to a project the guy who teaches me does where he takes all the kids he teaches and has them write guitar parts for one song, and record it in late August. I was the intro riff for 2012, but now I'm a short solo part in 2014. I have my part labeled in the video, so here it is:
Holy shit I haven't touched this thing in a while.
Ok I promise I'll upload covers eventually.
But something I haven't mentioned to many of you is I started writing lyrics. Well I have been since 7th or 8th grade but back in November I wrote my best one yet. You can find that here: https://soundcloud.com/walkingc0ntradicti0n/full-of-it-whole-song Lyrics are in the description. I tabbed it out in TuxGuitar so you can tell what I want it to sound like since I usually only know what they sound like in my head. The pastebin link doesn't have the best explanation for the song so I'll do that here:
When I started high school I ended up friends with one person who is possibly bipolar (this is what the last line of the 1st verse and pre chorus is). The first verse in general is how I have to be extremely careful around them or else I'm fucked. The second half of that (Making me rant to spend my night, etc) is about how we got into this discussion about them after our first band concert. The chorus is basically how I think sometimes they're lying but clearly they're gonna stand by their argument so I'm not gonna put up with it anymore.
The second verse is how they're mad at me longer than I expected and I should've been talking to them by now. The last two lines are about how it isn't entirely my fault they're mad and one person from the concert shouldn't have told them about the conversation. The bridge is pretty much how I didn't think it would end up bad so soon and I should've known something must end up happening since I actually managed to make friends with someone. The end of the bridge is how they're just ignoring me now and I probably got what I deserved.
So yeah, there's that song for you. I did write another one a few weeks ago but it's kinda forced so I'm revising it. I'll probably post that and a cover later.
(not to spoil the song I'm doing, but how many of you people like The Offspring?)
This blog is named "The Blog of Possibly Terrible Guitar Covers". I always thought that was meant for me. Now i have found a cover that isn't possibly terrible, its definitely terrible. The song is Ryan's Lament by Hearts At War, and i have an upload of this cover on my channel for some points to explain my opinion and such. Listen if you dare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dNT-yi9CBw
Ok. You people haven't heard from me in about a month. Mostly because any covers i did were going to be posted along with the X-Kid collab, which is taking a little longer than expected to finish. I'll make another blog with all the covers i need to upload then. But now i have..news.
I have anywhere between 5-10 unlinked/not uploaded covers. Some i might re-record before uploading, some I won't but after this... I think i might be done with covers for a while. Or forever. IDK yet. Soon I'll end up in high school and i won't have much time to record. And how do i put this...not exactly getting good rep here. I just need some form of a break but hopefully I'll still be doing them.
1: I have a new cover. Another Night in the Clouds by Far As Hell. There are a few others i did but no video yet.
2: I have guitar, bass, and drums ready for the X-Kid Collaborative. Only one question: HOW MANY OF YOU VOLUNTEERED TO SING?
Because I'm planning on sending the instrumental to people, they can record, and send back the vocals track. If you guys can do lead and backing that would be great. If you want/wanted to sing leave a comment and I'll send the instrumental to you.
Ok, you can probably tell by the title this is gonna be some favor blog. I'll get to that later. First I just have to say I ended up recording yesterday, but can't do any more tonight cause naturally school is being a bastard. Those will be uploaded sometime tomorrow, and I'll just edit the blog post with the links.
Now for the favor shit:
So, I like Daniel Shatterhand's Dookiefied version of X-Kid, but I sorta have my own ideas for doing it. The only problem is I only really know how to play guitar. There won't be any major differences, it's gonna be as long as the original version, just half step down and different ways of playing the chords and obviously a different solo. In order to do this, I'll need a singer, drummer, and bass player. If any of you are actually interested in doing this, I'll record my part and PM it to you probably. Just make sure you only send me your part so we don't end up with like 6 guitar tracks.
My cover of Revolution by Pennywise is up on the 28 Day Song Challenge Thread. WARNING: It slightly sucks. I also recorded The Grouch and re-recorded my Olivia Cover:
Good news: i did a cover this week.
Bad news: It was my 28 Day song challenge song, you aint hearing it till Tom posts the recordings!
So until then, I have original stuff. i have a topic here:
Just posted a song preview there until the guy i get lessons from fixes the stupid file.
I have two original thingys to make videos for, I'll edit the blog when i upload videos.
Here we go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNJ0oo7WzJg&feature=youtu.be
Well, stupid school projects made me not able to record this week. I was probably just gonna re-record olivia anyway though... But my dad is nagging me about what to get me for a late birthday present and I'm planning on telling him a distortion pedal. Slight problem, I have no idea what kind. So, what distortion pedal would be best to get like, Green Day sound or something? (and i mean legit distortion like dookie era, no trilogy clean guitar shit)
I have my covers done and uploaded, so here we go:
And my Demo -which sucks for a demo...-:
The good news is I have 2 Joint Aktion covers done AND a demo of this song I'm doing. The bad news is the solo in one cover might suck, and I keep fucking up the demo. Should have all three videos up by tomorrow or Saturday if I save the files to a flash drive and finish at my dad's house.
-Random Ranting- Stupid audacity, why must you mess up my mixing...and why can't i get this demo right!?
Ok, I'm planning on covering Joint Aktion's Detached at some point. But there's this lead part that I can't tell if guitar or bass is playing. It sounds sorta like guitar but its really low, and I don't hear any bass in the background. Can someone tell me what instrument is playing at around 2 minutes in?
After like 2 fricking weeks I finally have covers to post. The first one is MYLF by Far As Hell, the second one is Worry Rock.
Ok, I think I'm gonna be on cover hiatus for a week or so. I'm only able to record on Thursdays, but when my mom's out of the house. She usually is every Thursday for darts, but tonight her team isn't playing (but she usually goes to watch the game). One slight problem though. My brother showed up with his baby, and when that happens, it takes forever for them to leave. If I'm lucky, they'll leave but it really does not look like it.
In the meantime, here's a pic of my guitar:
Ok, I don't really know if there's a forum for this since I'm not making all Green Day covers, so I'm just doing a blog. I've made 2 guitar covers so far.. the first one i thought sucked, the second one...sucks less..I think, haven't heard your opinion yet. Brace for impact, I guess:
