  1. Ok, so this is really simple. Basically, someone posts a song. Then the next person gives it a score out of 10, briefly explains why, then posts another song for the next person to rate and so on. Example: User 1: Friday by Rebecca Black User 2: 10/10 Best song evaaar her voice is da bestest evaaaar!!!!lol Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley User 3: 5/10 meh, not my kind of music. But I do like his hair. A lot. Winter Wrap-up - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic You get the idea. The rules are that you MUST listen to to the whole song, or at least the first 5-6 minutes if it's longer than that. Whether you like the song or not! It can be anything as long as it's labeled music. Pony music, your favorite song, the song that you and your friend composed last night, a song from your favorite opera, a song you hate, ANYTHING GOES! Also, try to include a Youtube link to the song (or any other kind of link really, as long as we can listen to the song) to make it easier for others to listen to it. Also, try to stay classy and respectful. Not everypony has the same music tastes! ^^ Ok, so I guess I should start. Octopus - Syd Barrett http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL36NuJJLIQ&feature=fvst
  2. What are some of your favorite song lyrics??? Here are some of mine: Foo Fighters - New Way Home "I'll never tell you the secret I'm holding I know these things must bore you I can't find another way I'll never tell you the secrets i'm holding I love this leash that holds me When I try to run away" Breaking Benjamin - The Diary Of Jane "There's a fine line between love and hate And don't mind, just let me say That I like that, I like that" Radiohead - Airbag "In the next World War In a jackknifed juggernaut I am born again In the neon sign Scrolling up and down I am born again" U2 - Please "September, streets capsizing Spilling over down the drains Shard of glass, splinters like rain But you could only feel your own pain October, talk getting nowhere November, December; remember We just started again" Muse - Knights Of Cydonia "And how can we win When fools can be kings? Don't waste your time Or time will waste you"
  3. Not sure if anypony has done this yet, but it's a game I really enjoyed in some past forums. In this game you have to use one word of the previous song title to use in the new song title. While you don't have to, bolding the word from the previous song would be helpful Example: "Back In Black" by AC/DC "Black Sheep" by Metric "Sheep Go To Heaven" by CAKE "Monkey Gone To Heaven" by The Pixies "Gone Away" by The Offspring ....and so on and so forth. UPDATE: No just using the word in part of your response, like such: "Mother" by Danzig "Motherboard" by Daft Punk This does not count However, the following is okay: "Let Forever Be" by The Chemical Brothers "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince And The Revolution Now let's start with the following song: "Welcome To Paradise" by Green Day
  4. Blame Crispy and Viscra; their threads drove me to do this, because It's not all about guns, bitches, and bling. Have some POS to start out with. And yes, I fully expect this to be an unpopular thread.
  5. Who is your favourite vocaloid, and what's your favourite vocaloid song? For me, it would have to be fan-favourite Miku! Those cute twintails just melt my heart. Luka and IA are pretty great vocaloids too. As for the song, it would have to be Yume yume.
  6. Ok, we all know those people who pump their fists in the air, we know those people that headbang until they get whiplash, and we know those people who just go insane while listening to music. I was recently listening to "In one Ear" and I noticed with that particular song I basically have a mini seizure with fast movements scattered all over the place. So I just want to know how do you enjoy your music.
  7. I get that everyone needs some type of love in their lives and a lot of people like to express this, but why are there so many love songs? Why do so many people write love songs over some other topic?
  8. *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!
  9. 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
  10. Mine happens to be this awesome theme!
  11. 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.
  12. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/neil-peart-rush-obituary-936221/ One of the best drummers of all time. Some will say the best. Rest In Power Neil. May your legacy live on.
  13. It's time for a long overdue re-updated OP (as of 9/29/13). Spoiler tag it up if you want to check it out.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. what your favorite song of the movie and why ?
  17. 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?
  18. Hello everyone. Woohoo here with another entry of Musical Manslaughter, because you can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter' and these songs are jokes. Now with my previous entries, I tore apart individual songs. For this entry, I'm doing something different... I mean way different. I'm going to list the ten things in music that I hate. I may love music but there are some things in music that make my face go full on Yellow Diamond. Trying to find only ten things was a bit difficult. Also, these things I hate are in no particular order so you won't see a "ten, nine, eight," etc. Alright, enough of my shuckin' and jivin', here are the 10 things I hate about music... Auto-Tune This one is pretty obvious as almost everyone has torn Auto-Tune a new one. What I hate the most about Auto-Tune is its use... or should I say its misuse. When Auto-Tune first came out in the late 90s, it was mainly used a special effect. Its first notable use was in Cher's 1998 #1 hit "Believe." Nowadays, for the most part, it's used a crutch for "singers" who can't even carry a tune. Another thing I hate is the sound. It sounds so mechanical and unnatural, almost like a robot is singing. Where's the heart? While Auto-Tune might be useful for covering up the occasional vocal mistake, sometimes it makes the mistakes even more noticeable. A big example is Emma Watson's singing in the live action Beauty and the Beast remake. Why are artists and producers so obsessed with everything being pitch-perfect? Do they think the listener would be bothered by a few flat/sharp notes?! I'm not bothered by flats and sharps, but jarring pitch shifts and stuttering do. I don't mind Auto-Tune as an effect, but as a crutch... STOP! Just stop! By the way, if you're looking for someone to blame for Auto-Tune, don't blame Cher. That's like blaming the Wright Brothers for 9/11. Fade-Outs This one is pretty nitpicky but fade-outs are something that's always gotten under my skin. To me, fade-outs are a cop out. They're bland, uncreative, lazy, and they make the songs sound incomplete. It just feels like artists didn't feel like writing a proper outro so they just kept playing while their producer slowly turns down the volume. Another thing I hate is that fade-outs tend to drag on for way too long, which just makes me want to hit the "next song" button on my player. The worst is when a fade-out is used over an amazing guitar solo. Why would you fade out your own work?! These were extremely rampant from the 50s through 2000s. Nowadays, fade-outs have largely... faded away. Songs That Start With The Chorus I couldn't really find a good picture for this one. Another nitpicky one but I hate it when songs start with the chorus. To me, they feel like a quick and sleazy way to get the listener hooked. Personally, I prefer being warmed up with an intro and verse before getting to the chorus. I view the chorus of a song as the cream filling of an Oreo or the Tootsie center of a Tootsie-Pop. Starting the song with the chorus just spoils the song for me. It also makes the chorus much more repetitive (I'll get to that later.) There are only a handful of songs I like that start with the chorus, such as Guns N' Roses' "Paradise City," Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time," Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls," and a few others. Meanwhile, some of my least favorite songs do this, including Charlie Puth's "Marvin Gaye," Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood," ABBA's "Dancing Queen," Starship's "We Built This City," Wham's "Last Christmas," and the list goes on. Again, this one is very nitpicky. Songs That Run Too Long Before I tear into this one, let me say that I love long songs, but only if they're done right and most of the time, they are. However, there are some songs that are seven, eight, or well over ten minutes long when only half the time is needed. The biggest offenders in my eyes, or should I say ears, are "Hey Jude" by The Beatles, "American Pie" by Don McLean, and "St. Anger" by Metallica. "Hey Jude" starts of promising for the first three minutes, but the last four minutes of relentless "Na-na-na-nas" utterly ruin the song for me. "American Pie" is nothing but verse-chorus-verse-chorus and a slight tempo change for a whopping eight and a half minutes. Boring! With "St. Anger," who knows what Metallica were thinking, especially since they've made some amazing long songs like "And Justice for All" and "The Outlaw Torn." These songs really should be only three, four, or at most five minutes long. In my opinion, the best long songs are the ones they don't feel long and you hope would never end. Some great examples include Rush's "2112," Pink Floyd's "Echoes," Iron Maiden's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and many more. If you're going to make a long song, at least make it interesting. Don't be afraid to be creative. Bad Audio Mixing Have you ever listened to a song and it's so loud that it feels like your eardrums might explode? So you turn it down to a comfortable level only for the next song/part of the song to be so quiet you can barely hear it? How about when the music drowns out the vocals and vice-versa? That's bad mixing and I hate it, especially the ongoing "Loudness War." An infamous example of the Loudness War's effect was Metallica's 2008 album Death Magnetic. A pretty good album but the mix is so loud that it's difficult to hear at a comfortable level. I would have to change volume constantly. Why can't these big time artists and producers mix their goddamn audio right?! Are they that oblivious?! Why am I you asking these questions?! *sigh* Time to move on... Songs With "Featured" Artists I don't really mind having another singer or musician in your song, but lately it's getting on my nerves. Some recent examples of this include "Baby" by Justin Bieber featuring Ludacris, "Bad Blood" by Taylor Swift featuring Kendrick Lamar, "Right Round" by Flo Rida featuring Ke$ha, and "Dark Horse" by Katy Perry featuring Juicy J. What bothers me the most about this is it just feels like a commercial for the featured artist. They're usually there for less than a minute, sometimes a bit more, and they're done. It almost feels like they're featured just for a paycheck... wait. Another thing is they're not given a whole lot of time to shine. Why have them in your song if you're not going to fully utilize their talent? They really should be called "sponsored" instead of "featured." Once again, I don't mind this. It has been done right before, such as "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie. At least Bowie wasn't treated like a background singer and shared roughly the same amount of lead vocals as Freddie Mercury. But these recent examples just make me shake my head... and not in a good way. Annoying Vocalizations This thing I hate is pretty layered so let me break it down for you... 1. Non-lexical vocables: If you don't know what these are, they are nonsense syllables like "la-las," "na-nas," "doot-dos," "whoa-ohs," "hey-heys," "yeah-yeahs," etc. Except for very few instances, I've always hated these; they're so ridiculous and stupid. I always cringe if they're used as legitimate lyrics, such as "Hey Jude" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye." Blech! How about using some actual words! 2. Elongating Words: Whatever you call this. This one's nitpicky but I hate when a single word is stretched out to fill a measure. One big example of this that pisses me off is... say it with me now... "AND IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOOOOOOOOOOU." -Whitney Houston ...And I will always loathe that song because of that. There's nothing impressive about elongating the letter I. You're just destroying your vocal chords. I also hate when singers "stutter" words to fill a measure, such as Katy Perry's "E.T." and Rihanna's "This Is What You Came For." It just makes my vocal cords crawl. 3. Poor Enunciation: This pisses me off the most. I absolutely hate not being able to understand the words of a song. I've heard enunciations so poor that they sound like a different language. Some of the worst 'enunciators' in my opinion are Arianna Grande, Sia, Vince Neil, and Kurt Cobain. Why be a singer if we can't even understand what the fuck you're singing?! Other vocalizations that annoy me include too much vibrato, over and under-singing, and overly nasally voices. Love Songs Aside from a very, VERY, VERY select few, I... really... hate... love songs! I can say, without a doubt, that love is the most oversung topic in the history of music. Most love songs to me are just "I love you, you love me," mixed in with some pathetically cheesy lines, overused rhymes like girl/world and fire/desire, all laid on top of some slow and sappy melody and beat. I also feel the same way with sex songs and breakup songs. Why the hell can't you sing about something else?! There's a whole lot more to life than love! Then again, maybe I just hate love songs because I'm forever alone. Every time I hear a love song, I feel ridiculed for being single... Incessant Overplaying Of Popular Songs Do you ever get annoyed with hearing the same old songs everyday? I sure as hell am! In the spoiler below is a short list of what I consider to be the most overplayed songs ever... OK, it's not really a short list but you get the idea. I don't hate all of these songs but some I've heard so many times that hearing even the slightest note makes my face contort with annoyance. Why do radio stations insist on constantly playing the same old songs? Because they're popular? It's like they think they're the only songs ever made! Have they ever heard of variety?! There's a whole lot more to these artists than just their hits. It's not just on radio, but in TV shows, commercials, movies, video games, and other media. Like I said earlier, I don't hate all the songs I listed, but there is one song in particular that I absolutely loathe because of its incessant overplaying. If you haven't already guessed, it's Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." When that song was released, I could not escape it. Everywhere I went, I heard that abomination of a song. Hell, I remember one day in November 2014 where I heard it playing on five different stations at almost the exact same time! For the love of all that everything in this universe, play something else! I don't care if it's #1 on the charts, PLAY... SOMETHING... ELSE!! That's... just... what's the word I'm thinking of? Oh yeah... Rampant Repetition Out of all the things I hate in music, this one angers me the most. I'm fully aware music is built on repetition, but there are some songs, especially recently, that are so goddamn repetitive! Some recent examples include Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," Justin Bieber's "Baby," and Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You." These three songs have one thing in common, they repeat a single word in their title over 50 FUCKIN' TIMES! Many artists are guilty of this, not just today's, but music legends have done this as well. You wanna know how many "na-na-nas" are in "Hey Jude?" 162! What were they thinking?! Sometimes it's not just single words or vocables that are overly repeated, but entire verses and chorus, too. I especially hate it when the chorus is overly repeated at the end of the song. Do I really need to give an example of this? It's almost as worse as a fade-out. It just makes me wonder, do they really think that the more they repeat something, the catchier it'll be? I guess we may never know. In my opinion, there is a very fine line between "catchy" and "annoying" and most songs either just cross it or obliterate it. I would rant more about repetition, but then I'd be just repeating myself. And those are the 10 things I hate about music. This is a blog I've wanted to make for a while but didn't have the inspiration... which I finally got when I watched TJ Kirk's "21 Things I Hate About Movies" video. What are things in music that you hate? Leave a comment down below. This is Woohoo, signing off.
  19. 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
  20. *blows dust away* It's been how long since I did a blog? Two months? That's not too bad. Wait, who am I talking too? I suck at writing intros... Greetings, everypony, your friendly neighborhood Woohoo here. For a while now, I've been thinking about using my blog on a more regular basis. Up until now, the only regular thing I do here on my blog is "Woohoo Rewatches: MLP Seasons," which is way too infrequent if you ask me. After weeks of thinking of ideas (mostly thinking up of a title), I finally came up with something. So here's the launch of my new projected, it's called: "You can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter' and these songs are jokes." Midnight Scribbler came up with the name and subtitle What is "Musical Manslaughter" about? Well if you can't tell by the title, I basically rip apart songs I absolutely hate in a pretty exaggerated and humorous way and give them a score. It's kind of like Mr. Enter's "Animated Atrocities" (only with less shouting) mixed in with Buckley's "Musical Autopsy" and "Todd in the Shadows." Also like Mr. Enter, I've created my own scorecard (seen below) where I'll score the songs on the following categories: Cringe-inducing lyrics: When the lyrics of a song cause me distress, pretty self-explanatory Cringe-inducing music: Same as above, except with the music Poor Production: Do I think the songwriting, sound quality, structure, song length, etc. is lacking Overplayed: Do I think this song is played way too much, this one is really subjective Overly Repetitious: Pretty self-explanatory, one of my many pet peeves in music Nonsensicality: Do I think the song's subject matter or lyrics are nonsensical, this one is also really subjective Negative Effects: Did the song do anything negative to me, such as getting stuck in my head, giving me nightmares, losing faith in humanity, etc. I'm also including the negative effects of the song on the artist(s) and other people. This is probably the most subjective category. Also, this category is two points per box, bringing the total score to 80 It's still somewhat of a work in progress... Yeah I'm totally ripping off Mr. Enter Now for some disclaimers. This is all my subjective opinion, so don't get your jimmies rustled when I tear into a song you like. Just because I hate your favorite song doesn't mean I'll hate you (but I might hate you if say something like "how dare u! dis is da gretest song eva and ur just a jelus hater! >:(") Also, I am not, and probably never will be, an expert on music so my opinions may come off as flawed. Like I said earlier, it's all my subjective opinion. I don't think I ever have been objective... maybe. Oh, one more thing. I don't take requests. Entry Index
  21. Here are my favorite songs created/remixed by the MLP:FiM community! Enjoy! ♥
  22. 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!
  23. 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?
  24. What anime songs do you guys like the most? This includes OP and ED songs. My favourites are Snow halation, Yume no tobira and Days of Dash.
  25. 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.
