  1. *blows away dust* Wow, it's been a while since I've done one of these. Anyways, I'm Woohoo and this Musical Manslaughter, because you can't spell slaughter without laughter and these songs are jokes. So, it's been a few many months since I've made an entry for MMS or even a blog at all. My last entry was in March where I lobotomized Taylor Swift's cover lobotomy of Earth Wind & Fire's "September." Lately I've been feeling pretty uninspired to do these, or any blogs at all. Now I finally gained some inspiration. Before you ask, no, I'm not shredding a song this time, but I am discussing something music related. In fact, I've been thinking about using MMS to discuss anything music related. Hell, I already did last year when I did my "10 Things I Hate About Music" list. Alright, enough rambling, onto the discussion. Lately, a question has been burning in my head for a long time... and that question is... I don't know how long this question has been in my head, but it's gotten the point where I feel the need to discuss it. Why has this particular question been burning in my head? Often times, I hear or read about music fans complaining about bands, specifically older ones, that have just two, or even only one original member, or even no original members at all, while the rest of the band are a bunch of no name "hired guns." *sigh* Before I can even try to attempt this damn question, I need to answer another question that coincides with it: What is an "original member?" Unfortunately, the question of "what's an original member" generates even more questions than answers. Frankly, I don't really like the term "original member." Its definition is way too loose. *Well, after a hell of a lot of thinking, I think I managed to break down the types of band members. Without further ado, let's break it down. I'm just gonna get right to the point. I've broken down the types of band members and their criteria into four categories: Founding Members Longtime Members New Members Touring Members So a while back, I've had the honorary privilege to see one of the all time greatest rock bands of all time in concert, none other than The Rolling Stones. If you're wondering how I felt during that show, let me show ya... Yes, this what I look like With the concert still relatively fresh in my mind, I'll be using them as an example. Enough juckin' and shivin', let's break it down... again. Founding Members This type of band member and its criteria for it is pretty self-explanatory. These are the members that have been with a band since the very beginning. In the case of the Stones, it's obvious who the founding members are. Lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards started and have been with The Rolling Stones since its inception in 1962. Usually, when people think of "original members" of a band, they often refer to the founding members most time. Other times, they're referring to the "longtime members." Speaking of which... Longtime Members This one was a little hard to define as well as the criteria (which is why I've had a hard time finishing this blog), but I think I've figured it out. "Longtime Members" are the members that, although they weren't there from the beginning, have played with a band for a very long time. My criteria for this category would be this: Served in the band for at least 20 years and/or played on at least three studio albums. In the case of the Rolling Stones, drummer Charlie Watts (since 1963, although some consider him a founding member) and guitarist Ronnie Wood (since 1975) definitely fall into this category. New Members This category and its criteria is essentially the reverse of "longtime members," which would be this: Served in the band for less than 20 years and/or played on less than three studio albums. However, with the case of the Rolling Stones, there haven't been any new members since Ronnie Wood joined in 1975... at least no new "official" members, not touring members. Speaking of that... Touring Members Sometimes called "unofficial members," these are additional musicians that an artist or band brings on tour to help boost their sound, which frankly is more authentic than using backing tracks. With the Stones, they have a bunch of touring members, such as horn players and keyboardists, but the most notable is bassist Darryl Jones. He has toured and recorded with the Stones since 1993, replacing founding bassist Bill Wyman. That pretty much covers every type of band member and its criteria. Now back to the original question... What was the original question again? Oh, right. "What do you call a band with no original members?" To be honest, I have no definitive answer. How would you answer this question? I even asked other people in real life and on the forums this question and I got different answers, such as a cover band, a tribute band, a cash grab, and my favorite response, a disband. Now I leave you all with yet another question, "Do you care who's in your favorite band(s)?" This question I actually have a definitive answer: Yes, whether they be founding or new or touring, I actually care who's in the band. Frankly, it annoys me to see bands go through members like toilet paper. However, for most people, they just don't care. Most fans when they see their favorite bands in concert, they don't care so long as they hear their favorite songs live. Same with concert promoters, they don't care so long as they make money by selling the logo and putting butts in the seats. I should also note that very few bands retain the same lineup for most. if not all of their career. The only bands I can think of are The Beatles (1963 until they broke up in 1970), Rush (from 1974 until their disbandment in 2018), U2 (since 1976), Aerosmith (since 1973, aside from 1979-83), and ZZ Top (since 1969.) Do you care who's in your favorite bands? Let me know in the comments below. And that concludes this entry of Musical Manslaughter. Out of all the entries I wrote, this one was the hardest... and I mean it this time. Sorry if I haven't posted much but don't worry, next year I'll try to be much more active. This is Woohoo signing off. Happy New Year!
  2. Music is great! I love it so much! Some music makes me feel so many emotions that I cry happy tears. I want to know what songs does the same for you all! Here are some of my picks for peaceful thoughts: TheFatRat - The Calling and Luna, Please Fill My Empty Sky and bejeweled 2 -original soundtrack
  3. Is a particular song (or more than one song) that takes you back to an important time in your life, a particular moment, or just a song that reminds you of someone? Here's a couple songs that remind me of when I first met @Cyclone1066. We both refer to them as "our songs" That first summer we spent together.... This song takes me back to the day I bought my truck. It started playing over the radio on the drive home. This one takes me back to all the memories of just this past summer. Graduating high school, all the hot and steamy afternoons working on the truck (especially with @Cyclone1066 ) cruising around the back roads outside town with nothing to do..... Hearing this song takes me back to....a particular night this past February with @Cyclone1066.
  4. One of the best drummers of all time. Some will say the best. Rest In Power Neil. May your legacy live on.
  5. Most people have a reason for liking the music. They like certain genres because it speaks to them as well as says something about them. What genre do you mainly listen to and why? Ill go first, I am into mostly chillstep and chill electronic because i love layered sounds and a calming and laid back atmosphere
  6. I've never been to a music festival or concert before... I really want to though! I'm always either too tired or busy to go to any local ones. Going to a Vocaloid or any of my favorite bands concert has been a fantasy of mine since I was younger. I hope to go to a moderately sized concert with a group of friends. That probably won't happen though... Have any of you been lucky enough to go to a concert or music festival?
  7. what your favorite song of the movie and why ?
  8. I want to get into classical music, but it's too overwhelming to even start. I need some essential albums list that can help me please. (like synthwave essentials list or death metal essentials list.) It would help if it's in an album format. (don't just name the writer and the piece.) I'd also prefer it being recorded in the 50s - 80s, but that's just my peculiar taste, probably you can ignore that if you want. Just give me something to start with. So far, I like Antonio Vivaldi - The Seasons (Chamber Orchestra of the Leningrad State Philharmonic, violin Mikhail Vaiman, artistic director - Lev Shinder) 1976 and Igor Oistrakh plays Paganini 1975. I'd prefer to start from the most popular and easy listening songs. (like what Master of Puppets is to thrash metal recommendation list) So, in short, A list of essential classical music albums. Early recorded ones are better for me. (especially if it's available in vinyl). Beginner level. Any suggestions?
  9. It appears that jazz musician Jack Sheldon, who had played the trumpet on award winning song “The Shadow of your Smile,” passed away last Friday of natural causes. The news was withheld until just yesterday. Sheldon had served in the US Air Force and is also credited for vocals in some Schoolhouse Rock cartoons such as Them Not So Dry Bones, Rufus Xavier Sasparilla, I’m Just a Bill, and everyone’s favorite which I have posted below, Conjunction Junction He is survived by his longtime partner and two children
  10. Here are my favorite songs created/remixed by the MLP:FiM community! Enjoy! ♥
  11. This is an 8-Bit cover of 'You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song', a song from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - S07E13: The Perfect Pear. I really liked that episode, which motivated me to do something productive, so I did an 8-bit version of the song soon after watching the episode. Made in FamiTracker. I'm still kinda bad at it, so don't expect fireworks. Enjoy!
  12. As a request from a member of this forum, that shall go unnamed, I have been assign to teach how to compose music. So why not create a blog entry for that? I am a music composer, whatever that means? It means I am an artist, but with music instead of art, because those are kinda similar, but not. If you are a music composer yourself, or someone who can play music from reading sheet music, you won't be impressed. If you have never before heard music, you might be a little impressed, but most likely, you won't be. So where do I start? Where does the music come from? Usually, nothing comes from the void, but is rather pieces of other things I have heard under a very long time, that somehow got merged together and became something new (like when you dream). Usually it is a melody stuck in my head, that I try (emphasis on try) to remember so that I can do something with it in the future. If you can whistle, then you pretty much know what a melody is, because it is that part you usually sing to (when it is a song), or whistle. Let's start with a simple melody (an annoying one): So where do we go from here? Well, usually we want the roots of the chords, so we will know where the melody is heading (or staying at, or whatever). That will lead to creating the bass line. However, for the fun of it, I am waiting with the roots, and giving you the harmony instead. That is because the harmony has its own roots, kinda, to be confusing. When composing music, try to be as confusing as possible to the ear. But also, when we add the bass, we want it to have its own melody (eh, confusing, that's what we are aiming for!). So here are the harmonies: If you can count to 4 within the first Major 7th chord, then, be prepared when the bass has been added, as 2 of those beats will be its own chord, and the other 2 will be a sus chord. That stands for suspended. There are many kinds of suspended chords, and some of them are nameless. While many of you know of the sus2 and sus4 chords (which are blah), most pop songs uses the bass + 1 for the suspended effect, and we will too! By playing a Major chord and move the bass from the root by + 1 (not semitones, but on the major scale), the chord's harmony changes into a Dominant sus. You have the Dominant 7th and 9th as part of the previous chord, but the bass which must be the root forces the 9th and the broken 11th into a sus chord, which melts most people's ears (including mine). Any 11th chord are broken, and shouldn't be used. So here are the chords you here in the harmony, in the order you hear them (I only care about the harmony, not the base chord because this music is transposed by a few seminotes): Maj7 Maj7 Maj7 Major Min7#5 Min7 Major Dominant9sus sus4 sus4 Major6 Min7#5 Min7 Major9 Major Dominant13add2 I could go on about these chords forever. Though, even if they have a meaning by themselves, they will not mean the same when we add the bass to the mix. Time for the bass. Well, just have a listen: So with the highest part of the music being defined to be the melody, and the lowest part of the music being the bass, let's listen to them together (the rhythm between them might be the thing you have to be born with to be a truly good composer. Sadly, I am not): Now, to combine the bass and the harmony, to create those sus chords and complex ear bleeding stuff. There is one thing I haven't talked about, and it is the horrible Major 6th chords in there. The melody might force this to be music in mostly Major 6th, but any Major 6th chords should be banned because they are manipulative. Thankfully I only have a split second of the music actually playing the Major 6th. I could make a whole blog post just about why Major 6th is evil, but for now, let's concentrate on this d*mn thing: And to complete the different variations, here is the melody and harmony together (the music is pretty much completed when the drums kicks in): And to finalize this thing, the final music (all combined, good riddance!): Now if I managed to be a good teacher, all of you will compose great music in the future. But from experience, I am not a good teacher. Also, I will take questions if there are any?
  13. Have you ever been obsessed with a certain specific sub-genre of music and searched for it? Right now, I'm searching the early thrash metal (mostly between 1983 to 1992, that's the year that metal production stopped sounding lively) like Kat, NME, Turbo, and german thrash. Also retro thrash revival with the ones that tries to recreate the crude sound production like Antichrist or Deathhammer. I'm also expanding my territory towards retro synthwave genre started from the early 2010s, I mostly prefer darksynth with heavy distorted instruments with cyberpunk vibe like Perturbator and Dance Wirh the Dead. I also found a genre that roughly categorized as atmospheric black metal, but there were so much of them and my untrained ears don't seem to find that much of a difference from one and other. I also like digging early death metal movement when it barely separated from thrash and doesn't have that low-end death metal signiture sound. I specially like the first Morbid Angel album, I think the production is perfect. I'm also digging less known vintage psychedelic rock from all over the world roughly between 1966-1969 like He-6, Shin Joong Hyun, Night Sun, Please, Comus etc. What kind of music you are obsessed with and actively trying to find more about it? The more obscure and specific genre, the better.
  14. ERB (Epic Rap Battles) is a youtube channel that puts two figures from history (fictional or not) together, and those figures face off in a rap battle. The newest one they've done is Harry Houdini vs David Copperfield. , so I put up a poll about that one. So, I have to ask: Do you like ERB? Which one is YOUR favorite battle? Also, who won in that one? My favorite is either Steve Jobs V Bill Gates (Steve one that one), Frank Sinatra V Freddie Mercury (Freddie won that one!), or Artists vs Turtles (the Artists won for me!)
  15. What are the songs from the show (anything MLP related really: the show, movie, etc) that made you ponies rather sad and/or cry? Doesn't really have to be a sad song either, the Smile Song that Pinkie Pie sings in season 2 seriously gets me near the end, like I'm talking having to use a tissue box levels of tearing up x3 Also I think I speak for almost everyone that has actually watched the finale...
  16. A lot of people are sharing their Spotify decades or 2019 Year in Review, so I figured, why not start a thread where we can post ours, for those who use or have used it in the past? You can either transcribe the info that Spotify gave you, or post screencaps of the images, or both! Here is some of mine for 2019 (look in spoiler): TOP ARTISTS A Day To Remember NF Black Veil Brides Hans Zimmer Wolves At The Gate TOP SONGS Memory Of You by Feed Her To The Sharks Faded by Alan Walker Flying Together by Kadenza (now known as John Kenza) Bullfight by A Day To Remember My Stress by NF My most listened to genres were as follows: Metalcore Soundtrack Christian Rock Post-grunge UK hip hop I was 'genre-fluid', meaning I refused to let one sound define me. Uh... Okay. XD I also listened to a lot of podcasts, 10967 minutes. Mostly Film & TV, but some Religion & Spirituality, and Society & Culture too. What was everyone else's? Feel free to share and discuss!
  17. So what do you think are the best guitars and what guitar(s) do you use? For acoustic I have a Faith Saturn, It's a really good guitar for the price but if i'm honest, I would prefer a 12-string acoustic, I can play them a lot better and I really like the sound, I think I will be getting one in the near future. As for electric guitars, I wasn't very creative and went for two popular brands, Fender and Gibson. My Fender is a Stratocaster and I love it, It was the first guitar I brought that wasn't a beginner guitar, It was part of a "Special Edition" at the time I brought it and it's very reliable, The wood is amazing quality and it feels indestructible (even though I know it's not), It's a lot of fun to mess around with and has many great sounds.. My second electric guitar is a Gibson SG, I brought it with my Christmas money, Birthday money and personal savings, I guess it's the most "expensive" guitar I own, It has a very different sound to the Fender, It's a lot clearer and has more of a "rock" sound I guess. The guitar I play the most is the acoustic guitar but my favorite is the Stratocaster because it's very reliable and every time I play it I still feel the same excitement as the day I brought it, I'm not sure why, It just has a kind of "magic". to it. I would love to hear what you guys think.
  18. Due to me bringing it up in the music event thread I'm curious with our fandom being one with a love for music, traditional animation, and teaching children, how many of you are familiar with the Schoolhouse Rock series? Maybe watched some in school, maybe had some VHS tapes or DVDs, or maybe there's some on here old enough to remember watching it as it aired on television. What do you remember and any songs that are your favorite: My go to favorites have always been "The Shot Heard Round the World", "A Victim of Gravity", and "My Hero, Zero" I only had the America and Grammar rock tapes growing up but found the rest at libraries and even got the 30th anniversary pack a few years later with all the songs to enjoy:
  19. For those of you here that play guitar or practice what kind of guitar do you own? I have a Fender DG22s A guitar I'd kill to have later on is this the Epiphone Emperor Swingster
  20. It's been a while since I last posted a pony piano cover, but I finally did one it is: Equestria Land I Love from The Mane Attraction. This one took quite a few attempts to do, but I'm glad this one turned out very well. Enjoy!
  21. Okay so- I've had this tune stuck in my mind for a few months now: There's even a community around the song attempting to figure it out that's been quite active since June 30th of this year: And finally, this: ...There's just something so cool, catchy and fascinating about this song that many folks want to see the thing solved! It's so cool to see folks pitching in to solve this great, albeit music-related, mystery.
  22. If you can play the piano (or want to learn how), "raise your hand".

  25. Yey! I finally created my first Minecraft Noteblock cover! Yaaa.... can't wait to make more of these!
