did SlingeroGuitaro SomaZiro and I_adore_adore really collaborate making this? Like in the same room? Like actually in the presence of one another?

no, i recorded the music sent it by email to i_adore_adore, she sent me back a vocal track, I mixed it then showed it to netphoria, slingero wanted a crack at remixing it, so I sent him all the instrument and vocal files and he remixed the final version up there. although both slingero and I are from ATX, we have never met, and I_adore_adore isn't even from texas.

wilch, you seem to insinuate that a real collaboration can only take part if the contributors are together.

are you attempting to correct his punctuation, or are you saying that we SHOULD beat around the bush?
because i do believe the apostrophe belongs, as in "let us" not beat around the bush.

I've always found it interesting what different meanings things like "let's go" and "let us go" can have.

Where's this song, I'd like to give a listen.

What I meant by "hi" was... ummm... look, I sang on that song there! *points* That's me, guys!! That's sooooo me! And um. slingero and somaziro were nowhere near my house. Cigarski probably wouldn't mind some company, but no. They stayed in Texas. And um. i adore adore.

Finally got around to listening to this.

The guitar work is good. Jessica (?) has a pretty good voice, although I'm often not a huge fan of certain types of female singing voices (read: chick from evanescene) but she did the job. Liked how she started out in a traditional melodic style but then channeled the b0lly whine in the last section. The echo worked well to combat the low production value sound you were probably getting without it.

All in all, pretty good, but I had one major complaint:

That fucking snare drum.

i_adore_adore
01-16-2008, 05:07 PM
That's really not how I usually sing. The song was too low to sing in the same octave as Billy, and an octave higher wasn't very comfortable either. Heh. But hey, stuff happens. Not making excuses ;)

I can't believe I just got compared to that chick from Evanescence. I'm going to quit music forever. :p

if i were allowed to talk about such things, i would say that yes, i did.
maybe i should record a zeitgeist song so i can enter the contest.
except i don't like any of those songs quite enough to cover, aside from ma belle. and i'm too late on that one. oh well.

sorry, they sounded fake. i dont think they were. its better than i could do but, it could have used less computer editing i guess. i dont know. probably the best cover in the contest so far. i just think the zeitgeist cover is funny

SlingeroGuitaro
01-17-2008, 08:12 PM
heh, i think they just sound like a DI guitar, which they were. there isnt any space to them, its kind of.... nin sounding

it is what it is, i did the best that i could with the equipment i had handy, and like slingero said, its DI jmp-1 to my laptop, i have no issues with it.

i enjoyed the process and really had a great time working with i_adore_adore and slingero and really appreciate their input. it definitely showed me that doing something like this is very time consuming.

if i had time i would work on my next cover (cupid de rawk), but so far that has been a very very very slow process.

i think the new rules started after all the silliness in the beginning of the thread. if i remember correctly.

thread has me itchin' to cover a song. but which one??
i need to think this over.

ciGarski
01-17-2008, 11:58 PM
i got a text about the rules at around 12 from smashkin. look at page 1. not a single goddamned cigarski post, but yet its only me and 2 or 3 others doing the derailing.

i've covered la dolly vita and jesus is the sun. always liked that song.

skipgo, i suggest TTW

i dont even like the song, but i think you could do a pretty kick ass version of it

and i didn't twist the arrangement around at all. its not in the least bit creative.
