[Sticky] The best of GN (yeah, talking to YOU!) UPLOADED!
Final version uploaded here:
Submission deadline 24th July
So I was thinking, with all the people being here, why not make a GN 'album'? A collection of all kinds of originals from the GN members, so to speak. If you'd like that feel welcome to post your original you like most in this topic, I'll volunteer to mix them all together. Maybe I'm stupid, if not then let's rock. :D
[current list, in order of them being posted, open to change]
Dogbite - Prison Blues
SmokingDog - It's my Party
TR - Some Nice Place
Hilch - Kiss Me
Pbee - Game Over
Vic Lewis - Masquerade
Dan T - India Sunset
Celt - ?
DHodge - ?
Moonrider - ?
Sleutelbos - ?
Dneck - Prelude in Dm
I like the idea.
I think a hard part might be the over all mastering. each of our submissions has different
volumes. when compiled on a CD during playback the volume levels jump all over the place.
one song may sound low and another loud. that's what happens when I make download songs to burn CDs.
so if you think you could master the complete thing then I think it would be a good thing.
what is the way to post our sample here. other than link it to soundclick?
As long as it's a link to something I can download it doesn't matter, all else use a general file hoster or mail it. Soundclick will be just fine though. As for the mixing, that's easy to do, no worries. :D
cool. I am in with 'prison blues'.
(for now). :)
Id like to try to come up with something. i'm temporarily unable to record, again, but i'll try.
Arjen ..... do I have to do something new or can I send you my best? I would like you to include the title song from my CD ...... "Some Place Nice". Is that OK?

Good question TR the best of me might be still to come
I do have Two songs I am rather proud of
Ok I didn t sing it but its the best song I have ever written , and it is a beautiful sounding song
Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am
that sounds like a great idea, this is my most favoured song
feel free to use it on the CD
If I remember correctly, this is the millionth time we have tried this. :)
I can't record right now. Plastic USB Mic finally quit, after being run over by my office style rolly chair to many times.
Who needs a signature?
I mean really...
It's almost always lyrics...
or a cliche...
or garbage about me...
Lets just save YOU from the pain, ok?
TR: as long as it's an original I don't care. I don't want to get my arse burned, no matter how small the chances, so as long as all the stuff in the track is owned by you it's cool with me. :D
Dogbite: Great. Love that song, but if you want to chance your mind you'll have to weeks or so left.
Ken: Got it, thanks!
Hilch: Nice pick. :) All participants will be mentioned but I'll treat this as yoru pick so if Vic feels like joining in with one of his own songs that's cool.
Paul: Thanks for joining in. :D
Duff: no idea bout that, but it's butt-easy for me to do, so if people send in songs I'll get it done. I'll be on holidays till the 24th, and will finish it the week after. So you've got till that time to record something, and if people like this project we can do one every few months. It's just a fun little project which hopefully encrourages some people to start writing their own tunes.
so if Vic feels like joining in with one of his own songs that's cool.
Thanks for the vote of confidence! I have been thinking about it - narrowed it down to three songs, "Blood On Your Hands" "Masquerade" and "Mid-life Crisis Male Menopause Blues." I think "Masquerade" is my favourite of those, but neither that or BOYH have a drum track. MLCMMB does, but I reckon the guitar solo needs re-doing. Dunno what anyone else thinks.....
:D :D :D

I just remastered Prison Blues. it is updated and I am sticking with it for this cool project.
Vic: I personally like Masquerade most, too. Will stick it on the list, but feel free to change it anytime.
DB: cool, will check it out. 8)
