Influences: Nine Inch Nails, Perfect Circle, Pearl Jam, Royal Blood, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Kills
Think I am going to keep it simple this year. Find a sound that I like and use a looper pedal with my ancient drum machine to build up some layers.
I quite like the idea of just tweaking the tone on my guitar to get a bass sound and the increasing volume to build up some dynamics. I'm planning to get some harmonies in my vocals by recording the different parts on each chorus then combining them at the end.
It may just be a pipe dream or it might just work, who knows!
I will probably ditch it all and do whatever feels right at the time.
Thought I would try out my idea, it sounds poo and is a faff so I am just going to make it up as I go along.

Thanks so much for your comment on "Getting Old" - she was an absolute darling of a Gran.
Thanks a lot for listening to "The Morning Mist". And thanks also for your kind comments! It is not an oboe, but a soprano sax. 😀
I like what you did with Green. Nice melody and the drum parts are effective. Thanks for squeezing this in.
You are now shown as a collaborator on Green. Thanks
Thank you for you comment, I like those lines as well. Good luck on your last song.
Thank you for your kind words on "Disobedient". Remembered me I finally had to add the liner notes. You're close to # 14 – go!
Thanks for listening and commenting on Solution To The Problem. Glad you enjoyed it. 😎
You are most kind in your remarks regarding Changed Partner. Thank you! Glad you like the lyrics. One I kind of liked is still hanging around, Green.
E-mailed you the WAV. FB messaged the MP3 and chords. 😀
OK... it's also going to be the one known as "The one where ZeCoop goes off the rails" I was trying to channel my inner Jimi Hendrix (badly - but it was fun) 😉
Thanks for the comment on super blood wolf moon - and the rage against the machine reference! Always loved their riffs!
Ahem... hey, I just came up with something for you - gonna add bass and drums, but it's a dirty filthy guitar riff. 😀
I definitely hope so - I'm trying to write a ton of songs and will send something your way this weekend. 😀
Yeah, I worked out that it would be a 750% increase in my commute time! And they were really reluctant to offer any flexibility. The drive to Chesterfield isn't bad, and I work quite close to Holmebrook country park and Linacre reservoir so I've got a couple of nice places to go for lunchtime walks etc. Enjoying the drive more now that it isn't nighttime at 5pm, too.
Hope all is well with your work and that they're letting you program your singing synth robots on the job!
Yeah, they announced that they were closing the Matlock office and moving everyone to Derby so I put my CV on Monster and got a new job immediately that pays better and where the software department aren't actively fighting against their own global IT policy all the time, haha. It's going well! Although I do have to drive to Chesterfield every day which is a bit of a shock after getting used to a 5 minute commute on foot.
"What part of sing reduced you to tears?"
Mostly the pig lady. But also the gorilla family. Yes I'm replying to that comment within seconds of you posting it, I have a lot of thoughts about Sing. Also, slow day at work.
I’m thinking slide guitar and maybe harmonica with a bass
Alright then, I got the drums done and am thinking about what I’m going to add. I will keep going on it tonight. Making progress!
Thank you for your kind comments on my skirmish effort Coffee is for Closers only. Glad you're not in the same fix as my lonely man at the bar and that you were sipping coffee while waiting for your wife while reading it!
Ahhh! Yes, you heard the Sierra Online (SOL) music going thru my head! Rock opera is exactly how I was hearing it! lol And I LOVE GABRIEL KNIGHT!!!! I originally worked for their daughter company, The Sierra Network (TSN) (ImagiNation network (INN)), but them my job relocated to the Bay area and my now ex still worked for SOL, so didn't want to commute. My ex's boss pretty much promised me a job over there, tho at first I had to be in his dept, which was QA...so guess what the first game I tested was? Yup! Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within 😀 Yep lol SOL was THE BEST COMPANY TO WORK FOR!!! They were AMAZING!! Damn...now I wanna play GK again!!! I can't do that in February!! Okay, well, maybe I'll just listen to the soundtrack 😉
I just saw your email and listened to the clip. That sounds like it will work. How do you want to build it? I figured that I can take the clip and use that to build some structure and add some things. What sort of style are you thinking?
Thank you for you lovely comment on 'I fly' - its so nice to hear that your daughter enjoyed it, that really made my day 😀
Thank you very much for the comment on Carry Me Home!
\m/ yeah dude! Thanks for listening!
thanks for the comment about the lyric on Pete collaboration..
Hey Seemanski, thanks for the comment on my song I appreciate it.
Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. 😀
Thanks for the comment! I AM a big Ghost fan, so I'm not surprised that some of that influence has slipped in.
Thank you very much for you nice comments! I'm looking forward to explore your music!
Hey there! We are together on the random collab. How do you want to do this? It seems as though we can both play lots of things, so that won’t be an issue. I don’t write lyrics and generally don’t sing, but can. I mentioned a way to collab in the forum how one person starts with 1 instrument track and then it goes back and forth until it’s finished. Pretty fun and challenging. Or the traditional way....doesn’t matter to me. I look forward to it!
Re: learning EDM - I have had a reasonable amount of success with youtube tutorial videos. I pick one and then follow it through, but with different chords/rhythms/melodies so I end up with my own thing.
Thanks for stopping by to listen! 😀
😂😂 Thanks a ton my friend! First graders will appreciate any spelling errors!
Hey there! Thank you for that 😊 All good here with the little one - would be even better if he remembered how to sleep at night 😔 Ha!
Here's to making it up as you go along. Whatever I plan to do before February, that's inevitably the fall back position I end up adopting!
Heyyyy! Thanks for the note. I hope you have all the fun!
Very excited to hear some seemanski goodness. Maybe a Collab again this year?
Yeah! Good possibility I'll be able to do a few songs this year. Looking forward to loopy stuff, I have an EH Cathedral that can do that stuff but I have zero skill with that technique
Hey! All good here, I look forward to hearing your new stuff!
Had a good 2018, and I certainly hope yours was great too. I definitely want to try to get a song done together. Whatever happens... But I always love composing with you! 😀
That's great news! Let's hear that kiddo on a song... I got my 5 year old nephew on one last year
Hoping that you can carve out time from your wonderful family and do some music! And hopefully together... 😀
