:D :D :D
Oh man, hahaha!
A sudden explosion of enthusiasm, that's fucking awesome!

I don't know the exact status of how songs are done, but I believe that the first post is up to date.

1. Half-Truism - Felldrake (Done)
2. Trust In You - Raptor88 (Done)
3. You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - Will be sung by Teff (I'll.be.waiting), guitar by stylie (NEEDS 2nd GUITAR)
4. Hammerhead (DONE)
5. A Lot Like Me (DONE)
6. Takes Me Nowhere - Raptor88 (NEEDS EVERYTHING) WHO WAS IT THAT DID THAT ONE INSTRUMENTAL VERSION THAT I HAVE?
7. Kristy, Are You Doing Okay? (DONE)
8. Nothingtown - Lost (DONE)
9. Stuff Is Messed Up - Ryder 1234, sung by Static and Lost (NEEDS BASS)
10. Fix You (DONE)
11. Let's Hear It For Rock Bottom - Ryder, to be sung by Randman, drums by thomas? (NEEDS EVERYTHING)
12. Rise And Fall - Superdope, sung by Motacos (maybe) (NEEDS BASS AND VOCALS)
13. O.C. Life (DONE)

Bass and drums are needed the most as usual, from what I can see, Takes Me Nowhere still needs vocals (I might be wrong!), also I have a faith in Motacos even though he's a rare bird here. I'll make a little investigation about him ;].

On a sidenote. It won't be a problem to include some more covers as bonus material, like brothadave's "Nothingtown", so I encourage you to make a cover of an already "taken" song, if it will be okay with you that it will appear as bonus stuff. So go ahead and collaborate, if you want an instrumental track to do your vocals, ask for it!

Correct me if I'm wrong about anything!

I can sing some, too, if singers are needed.

So stoked that Dexter posted here!!

I didn't know about this thread before.. I wish I had. When they were collecting cover songs I contributed my bands cover of Moonlight Shadow.

I'd really love to do one here.. someone who knows whats going on could get in touch :)

Ill.be.waiting.
02-25-2009, 08:32 AM
Wow, thanks everybody for working on covers...that's very flattering.

Thank you dexter, if you wouldn't do such incredible music, we wouldn't be inspired to do all these things, you're our inspiration.
And I hope someday you could listen to the songs when they're finished

Ill.be.waiting.
02-25-2009, 08:35 AM
This is a really good thing, now the songs are going to be done really fast because we're so excited haha, at least i am!
I can't believe it.

02-25-2009, 08:41 AM
i vote for Les Paul Girl for a singer too.

i like her voice a lot!!

Oh, thanks :o
I'd love to do some vocals if there's still need for it...

Oh hey, I'm going to try to finish the guitar for simu today or tomorrow (if i have a chance to breathe between now and then. i'm sooo busy.)

Sarah, you wanna do the vocal track for it? I was gonna, but you haven't done anything for it yet. Static_martyr is doing the fast part though.

Alright _Lost_.

So, if no one has recorded the solos for YGGFK yet (like when I was gone, sorry), I'm still in for doing it. School takes a lot of energy (vacation now!), and I've just been too busy and lazy - but don't misunderstand me, I really want this to be finished too! And yeah, maybe pathetic of me for coming with excuses, but it's the truth...

Btw, anyone got correct solo tab? I've found a few ones, but I'm not quite satisfied. We'll see. But if anyone got, let me know.
I got this video I'm editing too, but I'll try to record it within the vacation (damn, I shouldn't said that, but ok).

And Dexter, nice of you to leave a message here. We appreciate it really much, thanks!

This thread has been pretty fun, we have lots of very talented musicians on this bbs. It's too bad i'm pretty much void of relevant musical talent, i wish I could have contributed in some useful manner. Perhaps if the band ever writes a proper ska song, i would totally grab an alto sax (high school band FTW) and be all over that!

Also, pretty cool that Dexter noticed and is appreciative.

02-25-2009, 10:35 PM
we had never intended to reproduce the songs the way they were originally recorded. it just seems to have gone that way. everything sounds good, but i was hoping more people would have their way with the songs than they did. we still have time. i need to add some more to simu before i feel comfortable releasing it, seeing as it still sounds too much like the original.

Cool to see a comment from Dexter. :) I wish I had more time/energy and could actually get around to doing what I've said I'd do for this. I'm still claiming the vocals for Takes Me Nowhere, though... and eventually gonna take care of the synth and piano parts for Fix You.

I suddenly have the great to urge to play guitar for a song. Sorry to ask this when there's a list right in front of me, but...are there any free songs? If there is, but someone asked before me, it's all yours. Rock Bottom would be the one I want least, but I'll take it...you know, Kevin being a bum and all.;)

I'd have liked you to do "Half truism"! WHo's doing that? And isn't the Trust in you version with You, Lost and Becca on the list?

_Lost_ said it already, but...I've said it before, I'll say it again - don't afraid to add some experiments in songs, it's very cool if you add something new to songs, nothing wrong with a cover being different from original. I would easily add some weird intro, an additional solo, different tempo part, different vocals, my own additional lyrics... the list can go on... turn on your imagination!

It's easy for me to say cause I'm doing nothing eheh... and I think the biggest problem is that songs are recorded by pieces, so everyone's following originals, well, that's logically...

02-26-2009, 10:36 AM
My dear Anabela de Sousa Borges, I would be absolutely happy about Les Paul Girl doing some vocals here or there, but unfortunately at the moment I have an impression that all the few songs that still aren't done already have their singers. I could only ask if somebody wants to "share" their song with her, as I said, all the experiments are welcome, there might be few vocalists for a single song. I could also offer her to choose what songs does she wants to sing, so it'll get into "bonus stuff", I think it's possible to get an instrumental track for any song. It's not like everybody ignores you, folks are just focused on doing what they claimed.

Les Paul Girl, I suggest you to check the first page of this thread for songs' status, if you're really interested in any incomplete song, don't be shy and post what you could offer. No one's gonna bite you :), really, if you have any questions - ask. Please read carefully, don't miss anything from what I've said because I'm repeating such things quite regularly.

For everyone else, Les Paul Girl really can sing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vethnZNpUuY), can't anyone offer any "job" for her?

Has it not been readily apparent to everyone that I've been trying to give away the vocals for simu?

she wants 'em, she can have 'em.

I don't have time nor the patience nor the energy to do anything for this aside from what i've already done.

I will finish the guitar part for simu and the art for kristy. Then I will make the final zip file of everything (artwork and music) once it is all together because that way I only have to upload the final mixes one more time seeing as the ones in my sig are nowhere near current. I would also like make the 'release' thread as to prevent any further messes with extra threads. Aside from that, I can't and won't be much more help aside from some final mixing of YGGFK and simu and others that i mastered.

This is what i decree and I will update the first post to say the same. I want you guys to get on the ball to finish this thing up. there are plenty here. stop asking me whats available. I only know what I've put in my first post.

we don't necessarily need real drums if thats an issue for people. we can always use digital tracks. theres nothing wrong with that and we've done it a hundred times before.

EDIT: That being said, if I had the time and energy, I would soooo be rerecording the vocals for Hammerhead... they're awful.

Les Paul Girl
02-26-2009, 05:30 PM
If _Lost_ really wants to give up the vocals for SIMU I would love to do them. It's one of my favourite tracks on the RAFRAG album!

I'm aware that Tim wants do to the fast part and that suites me more than fine since I think I wouldn't do them very good. :cool:

The first post says that SIMU needs bass (and apparently my vocals?), is that correct? If you can hook me up with an mp3 download (no .mp4s or .m3us or anything weird like that, my PC can't open them) of the drum track and guitar, then I can hook ya up with some bass (and maybe vox)~

Alright, here's mah bass line. It's really low-fi (sorry....my mixer took a shit on me this morning, and now I can only record in mono because the left channel is completely shot....gonna need a new one very soon), but hopefully it'll still work.

Also, I noticed that the mix thus far is really low-centric; it was kinda hard to find a frequency to record bass in that isn't drowned out by the mix. So I did what I could; maybe you can fix it, if it doesn't work.

In any case, lucky for you guys, I'm off the next three days and I have nowhere to go, so in what time I don't waste playing Persona 4 again, I'll be free to do instrumentations and whatnot~ Just drop me a line if ya need anything.

P.S. You'll probably want that link, won't you?

Haven't worked with the solo this week, but now that it's weekend (saturday, sunday) again I'm here.

So! I just learned the few missing parts in the solo tonight. I think I got a little bit to high tone in it, and I'm 100% sure that the way I play it is different, though it sounds pretty good. So I'm a little bit unsure...but I'll record it tomorrow so you guys can judge, okey?

Okay, so I've recorded some vocals for SIMU today. Had to record them with my own mic, though. I can borrow a better mic for next weekend if you think it's bad quality, but unfortunatly not until then.

It would be great if someone (Tim?) could do some backing vocals. It feels like they're missing at a couple of places (please leave a message..., by Bud Light, put him back)

Aha! I got that first too (and was really happy about it), but after a little while it got this weird sound sometimes (hard to explaine)... I gave the amp to the music store I bought it from, but they didn't found it out either, so they had to send it to this Vox factory. I was gonna get a new amp then, but I could also just pay a little bit more and get the 30 watts. I wanted to do that because it's a much louder sound in it, and the price difference between them was barly noticeable. So, pity about my 15 watter, but I was also kinda "lucky", heh.

It's not exactly the same, I got a bit higher tone, and kinda made it a little bit "my own". But thanks!

They did sell many of that Vox amp, and this was the only one that it was something wrong with. But yeah, kinda lucky for me. I wasn't happy when this first started, but it turned out well in the end. After a bit I came on the thought of the 30 watts, and the price differences between those two was like nothing, so.. : )

And hey, du er jo fra Sverige! Hyggelig, heh. Hper virkelig The Offspring kommer enten til Norge eller Sverige i r.


EDIT: Everybody's getting these Vox Valvetronix amps. I feel sorta left out.

Hahah, really? Well, I think it's a really good amp. Those dudes in the store did prefer this amp rather than this, uhm...Roland Micro Cube 30 I think it was. Got more effects and stuff, and clearer sound (because of...gah, now I don't remember it again). Maybe the Roland is better to gigs and that sort of things, but when (and if) I'm getting that long, I'll buy a new one which is much bigger.


Btw, about the solo. I didn't go to school today, so I haven't managed to record it. I don't know if I get time to do it tomorrow, 'caus we got this english oral-thing Wednesday.

Static_Martyr
03-17-2009, 05:12 PM
Alright, here are my vocal tracks for SIMU. I did two and uploaded them separately, because I think they would be better off mixed into slightly different channels as opposed to simply overlaid over one another in the same channel; give it kind of a gang vocal/chorus effect. At least that was my intent~

Also, whoever is doing the final mixing? You might have to mess with the speedy part in the middle in order to get the volume right. It was either "record it all at the same volume," or "have 18 different tracks with different volumes," or "spend all afternoon playing with volumes to get everything perfect." And since I have no idea what you guys are planning for the final mix to sound like, I figgered I'd leave all the tinkering and fine-tuning to y'all. So if there's a problem with volume or hiss or something, that's why (although I did try to get rid of as much clipping as I could find).

Nice to see you back!

The first post says that "Rise And Fall" besides vocals needs only bass, is it possible to get a bass-less track for Motacos?
Or maybe Tim could record the bass, so it would be more or less "close to complete" track. The point is - while Motacos is around, it's better to clarify things about his job. =]

These are accurate. Superdope I still need that guitar track from you for rise and fall. you sent me one pre-synced but i need it separate. I think you said you planned to re-record it.

Thank you! Gonne be fun listening to the whole album when we're all finished. ^^

Btw, just one thing about the guitar in the song. I started a little bit before the drum and bass in the start, that kinda ennoys me a bit.
Is it possible to just cut it a little bit so it all got synched, or is that too much work?


Anyway! Here's finally the solo. Look at that, didn't take too much time to record when I first begun, since I already knew how to play it. Heh, I'm pretty "strict" when it comes to things like this, so I think it turned out pretty well. You know, it's actually a bit funny to think on this...when I said I could do the YGGFK guitar, I didn't have a clue how to play it. I think I just had played the electric guitar for about a month back then.

http://www.savefile.com/files/2070448
...just in case if that track doesn't fit to the song (different tempo etc.), I uploaded another in reserve. Since I'm going to my cabin, I can't record a new one in a few days. But I'm pretty sure the first one fits 100%, so use that 'cause I think that's the best one. We probably don't need this http://www.savefile.com/files/2070460

And here's the track for the little "fills" in the verses! I let the recording go, so both of the "fill-ins" are in this one track.

http://www.savefile.com/files/2070513

So I guess that's it! Now I don't have to worry about this anymore and feel bad. ^^
We just need some really kickass vocals now, with much energy! :D Happy easter!

No worries, Karin. He's not a forum geek like us (well, at least offspring official one :P), so it's natural that he doesn't keep in mind this little project we do ;]. Hell, even some of forum geeks still didn't listen to any cover, what do you expect from a busy man like Dex. :P That absolutely doesn't mean that he doesn't want us to finish this tho, also, I'm sure that IF he'll get the complete cover album, he'll listen to it.

Absolutely agree with you Free? Dexter's a busy man, and even though he didn't listen to any of the songs, he did see all those pages here and understood that we've worked hard with this. That's enough for me! : ) As you said Free?, he'll probably listen to the final work if he get's the CD.

I'm fine with acoustic covers, Rock Bottom should sound neat, not so sure about Takes Me Nowhere tho. But if you can do it, then do it.

Ok guys, I totally lost track of the progress here. I've got some time on my hands this week-end, so if there are any guitar/bass-tracks that need to be done, give me a call. It's a bit disappointing that the project seems to stall so close to the end so if you need me, let me know. But I can't read the last thousand pages of this thread to find out what still needs to be done and won't be done by someone else in the near future.

Hey man!
We definitely could use your help :P.
Here are the options:
Takes Me Nowhere. - needs drums+bass

And you're already up for Rise And Fall (<-edited) bass :].

If it's possible, could you program the drumtrack for Takes Me Nowhere (we're absolutely out of drummers and without drumtrack, Raptor88 can't record the guitar.)

That's the situation.

I'm PMing Motacos to let him know about RAF track.

OMMMMMMMMMMMMG!!! I'm getting NUTS of that fuckin' "enter this here" shit.
Me too, buddy. I have no idea why they started doing that. It reminds me of back-in-the-day rapidshare, when they made the 0 and O exactly the same, and you had to guess which one was which. Get it wrong, and wait another minute.




randy, what chords are using?
Well, as I realized the other day, I don't know as many weird, cool chords as you, so right now I'm just sticking with D major, A major, and G major. I'm trying to figure out more, though.

It's okey with such things to stop bots and stuff, but don't make it that hard so you just have to guess sometimes.

Raptor88 is doing guitar for Takes Me Nowhere, but he can't do that without a drum track. Also bass is needed. Llamas claimed vocals for it.

FellDrake will do the RAF bass, Randy and Karin are twisting the Rock Bottom, I guess it's safe to leave it them. Teff can't wait for an instrumental YGGFK track, also Motacos is warned about RAF vocals (he didn't reply yet though). Everything else is done.

Great Karin!

I know it's not finished, but just wanna pick up a couple of things I heard while running through it to make it maybe slightly better. :)
The verse fill in's need to be lower, and maybe moved a little bit back, 'cause it seems like it get's unsynched after a bit. The solo maybe needs to be moved some few milliseconds back to, 'cause that one sounds to get a bit unsynched in the end too.

When I recorded the two last tracks, I tried to play it together with the instrumental track afterwards to check if it was synched - and it sounded pretty good, so I think this is gonna be pretty good to! ^^

Dude, isn't few weeks a period that is left to get the whole thing done? If you're not sure that you can record it in time, let others do the acoustic cover. You got your drums anyway, so if you'll make it fast enough (after you there's also vocals and mixing to do) then I don't see a big deal to put it on CD.

Also, Tijs works on the booklet and your old credits page is one of the problems about it. It's not up to date and it would be better to get it in a better quality. I think the easier solution is just to not use it at all (because it isn't necessary anymore - all the players and vocalists are listed near each artwork). If you want that page anyway, then please fix it. You can check the updated info for it here (http://offspring.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1293533&postcount=435), but there's another problem - that list can not be complete until all the covers are done. :s
What do you think about all of that, Kevin?



In other news - seems like Tim isn't the only person with recent pc problems, Superdope asked me to let you guys know that his computer is also messed up and is recovering in repair service. He doesn't know how long will it take to get it repaired. So he is unable to do his part in covering until then.


Not really news, but a thought. I'm aware about Motacos vocals for Rise And Fall. I still didn't get any response from him (I sent him a PM with RAF instrumental track like 10 days ago), so yeah, I'm worried. I trust in Motacos, I believe that he'll record the vocals, the problem is that he might be too late because he visits this place rarely. There were many who wanted to do vocals right after Dexter posted here, I can let them know about the RAF situation. But what of Motacos suddenly appears?...


-----------

As you can see, all in all there are several problems and it's not guaranteed that new ones will not appear. So, please, if you haven't done your part yet, finish it asap because in the end all the little problems will be a big disaster, let's not let it happen.

Doing the drums was in reality as much for me as it was for Kevin. I badly want an electric version, BUT yeah, the time frame may not allow that. So for the sake of getting this thing done, I'm up for whatever.

There were many who wanted to do vocals right after Dexter posted here, I can let them know about the RAF situation. But what of Motacos suddenly appears?... I believe that we're getting to the point where we need to just start filling in stuff where stuff is needed. It takes, what, 10 minutes to record lead vocals for a song, and that's if you do two or three takes. I can completely understand being too busy to do this relatively trivial thing, but if you don't have 10 minutes, someone else does. I promise I'm not bitching or anything, and this is totally not about you, Motacos, if you read this, but some songs have been done and just missing vocals for months, right?

Btw, I'm not pushing for me to "fill in" anything. Just sayin'. :D

Raptor, some things in life are way more important than recording a few guitar parts. Don't worry about rushing to do them. I say take all the time you need to deal with your loss. I hope you're ok.
As for the project, I understand that everyone wants this done before the tour starts but come on, poor Raptor has had a bereavement in the family and people are still breathing down his neck.
How about the people that are available to record stuff just do it to get this project finished. Then the people who wanted to take part in this project, but couldn't for whatever reason, can take part in the next one.

Thanks to everybody for your words. This means a lot to me.

Anyway, i can do the parts. Well, i think that zsk wanted to do one guitar part for Takes Me Nowhere, but i'm not sure anymore, he doesn't seem to check this thread very often. Maybe i'll do both parts, i need something to distract me from all the shit i've been through. I'll put all my efforts into music, because that's at least one thing that i can make in the right way. I honestly don't care about my studying anymore. Whatever i do i just want to finally be happy, because i think that it's about the time things start to go better for me and my family - we've really been through enough, even too much shit (my mum and my grandfather had cancer, both were successfully cured), 2 deaths in one year, i could count on... Then i lost all my friends (well, if people who are only using you can be reffered to as friends), failed my first year at the university because of that (i was too angry and too lonely). I was always on my own, and i guess i always will be.

Eh fuck it, i guess some people just aren't meant to be happy. Fuck everything. Only music can pull me up, if i fail at this also, i got no reason to live anymore, and i mean it. The only thing that goes right for me is my band, and nothing else.

Well, songs for my band are coming up really fast these days, i can write complete lyrics for a song in an hour, sometimes even less. As i said before, my band is the only thing that seems to go in the right direction. Everything else i try turns out to be a complete failure - study, girls, everything you can think of. It's like i'm cursed.

I'm just glad i'm not emo, otherwise i would already be cutting my veins. But instead i just plug in my guitar and start making agressive punk songs (but still with some hooks, every song so far had some melodic and memorable riff, or an epic chorus). Fuck everything, if this is the thing i'm good at, then i'll go for it.

Anyway, let's try to stay on topic here. Maybe ad8 could do the guitars, i'll let you guys know. I have to get myself together first (if that's possible), and then i'll see.

Everything else i try turns out to be a complete failure - study, girls, everything you can think of. It's like i'm cursed.

I'm just glad i'm not emo, otherwise i would already be cutting my veins. But instead i just plug in my guitar and start making agressive punk songs (but still with some hooks, every song so far had some melodic and memorable riff, or an epic chorus). Fuck everything, if this is the thing i'm good at, then i'll go for it.
I think you shouldn't think like that. I used to think the same way(I still do when it comes to girls:(), but I think you could do better. Try not to think "I won't succeed" or "I will succeed" but just try to focus and concentrate on what's to do rather than thinking about the future or the past. Maybe that could help you. Although death is something that can't be dealt with that way, I guess. But still you can be proud of not being emo;)

Well, thanks dude. And i am proud of not being emo. They just seek the easy way out (suicide), they don't think about the pain they would cause to others with it (their friends and families). Suicide and self-harming is for cowards. I'm not afraid of death, i would give my life for my loved ones if i have to (i was a volunteer firefighter).

Anyway, thanks for your words. And i've focused on songwriting, it helps me out. Another new song just began to take shape today (yesterday there was just one riff, intro). This looks like it will be more classic punk song, and maybe it won't even have an epic chorus (finally, so far all or almost all of my choruses were epic :D). But so far i think it'll be another kickass song.

Anyway, i'll really think about TMN, if i'll do the guitar parts or not. I'm busy with making my own songs for my band (if i continue making songs at this rate i'll have material for 2 or 3 albums by this summer), i'm the main songwriter. I'll see if i'll have time for TMN also. But if not, you can take over, i'll let you know soon enough. I've done Trust In You already.

Exactly my thoughts. One the one hand suicide just does not seem right and on the other hand it's cruel towards family and friends.

thats what i'm saying becca. nobody is breathing down his neck. my point was, that if he could do them, thats great, but we need to know if he can't so someone else can. i lost two grandparents last year. i know what i went through and so i'm not about to push him. i may not have sounded terribly empathetic when i responded but thats only because i rarely have more than 20 mins or so to use the computer on any given day lately.

Sorry. I didn't mean to sound quite so much like I was having a go at you :o

Okay, can someone maybe upload that Rock Bottom drum track to something like sendspace or rapidshare or something? I can't seem to get the download to work on zshare....it's like, "download this file." Click. Okay, now "wait for your download link to appear." Gotcha. Alright, "click here to download!" Alright. Click. "Download this file."

I am beginning to wonder if I am not one of those very special kinds of idiots that just knows enough about computers to royally fuck them up. That would actually explain a lot that's happened recently 0.0

Tim's Awesome-Tastic Rock Bottom Bass Line = http://www.sendspace.com/file/rqnu09

Two differences from the original:

-I messed up EVER SO SLIGHTLY on the first high-octave jump after the second chorus;
-The outro is the same rhythm as the chorus, instead of steady 8th-notes.

^Just for whoever plans on playing the guitar part; I would've gone back and "fixed" them, but after 43 takes, my fingers were starting to fall apart and my back was killing me (I got this tiny-ass chair and this tiny-ass desk....trust me, you don't want me to go into it). So here's what I got, for better or worse :D

Heh, sorry Timmo. You are the second person to mention having trouble downloading with that (but I thought that it was the other person's connection that was to blame), so don't feel bad. :P

Are you sure that wasn't just me in your AOM topic? Because I had trouble with the same site there, too :(....what do you do to download? Like where do you click when you go in? Maybe I'm just doing it wrong....

Hehe, no. It was my gf who couldn't use the site. She's not as tech savvy as you, though, ha.

Okayerz. You click on "download this file," then "skip this ad" (that is, if an ad comes up every time), then click on a little graphic that says "Download Now!" After that, you have to wait x number of seconds, after which the "click here to start your download" thing appears. Then, click there to start your download, and it should look familiar from that point on. ;)

And thanks for the bass! I'll check it out pronto.

04-28-2009, 07:19 PM
Yeah, that's where I ran into some problems....I got past the countdown, to the point where it said "click here to start your download!" And then it just takes me back to the player again (with the 'click here to download this file' above the player window).

I'm really starting to loathe computers, though....seriously. Twice in this same week (four times this month), my PC has been kicked off of our LAN (where all of my music files have been stored), thus crippling my recording work for weeks at a time. Just when I finally get everything up and going, I remember that (A) My graphics card sucks, so I still can't watch videos worth a damn, and (B) the internet is retarded and there are still 834598745 things I can't do because of my computer or some strange configuration thereof....

On a lighter note; yeah, think positive! :cool:

Sure thing. I didn't have time to clean up the bass track, but I'll get to that soon. Also, besides the thing I mentioned before about the drums cutting off at the end, I noticed that I messed up a part right before it, but it's no problem. If you just keep rocking through that, I'll change it later.

Okay you guys, I'm updating the link in my sig on both profiles to include the newer versions of everything. None of you have heard them yet because I haven't sent them to anyone. This is months of mixing.

Nothingtown, Half-Truism, Fix You, and A Lot Like Me have all been updated. I'm also in the process of uploading Stuff Is Messed up, but I am missing one of Tim's tracks for some reason. I'll update again when I have it.

I highly recommend redownloading Half-Truism and listening to it at full volume. Its epic.

Wow, I totally forgot....like a month or so ago, Superdope sent me a profile message asking if I could do the bass for Rise and Fall; I said I could, but I never actually did (because I couldn't find the drum track, which was supposed to be somewhere in this topic), and then I just forgot altogether. Thanks to Lost for leaving me a message, which forced me to look at my message board, which caused me to see Superdope's message :)

In any case....I guess what I meant to ask was, has anyone done the bass for Rise and Fall yet? And if so, do you need me to do it? If you do, just send me the drum track or post it somewhere here because I can't find it to save my life....I'm off this weekend, so I should be able to squeeze it in sometime in there for sure.

Yes Tim, please do Rise And Fall bass. FellDrake is gone for a while now and we have the luxury of too much time.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SHIDC8S0 here are drums for RAF Karin linked for FellDrake back then.


And I think Les Paul Girl will do vocals for RAF.


Does it mean that someone will have to re-record RAF guitar for new drums+Tim's bass track or the old Superdope's guitar line will work fine?

Just listened to all the songs that are done, heres my opinion.

H-T: Like it as is

Trust in you: like it as is

hammerhead: like it as is

a lot like me: like it, but dont like the sound. i liked it better when it was "raw", unedited.

kristy: like it as is

simu: ok

fix you: again, liked it more "raw"

rock bottom: like it, but id suggest randy turn up the main guitar a bit more and the bass just a bit.

Not all the tracks, just the main plus like the palm mute one. the other verse riff is good.

it does need a bit more bass though. just listening to the real one and ours one after the other, the real version is really bassy, but not overpowering, if that makes sense.

Not that I want to swoop in and steal his part. If he still wants it I'm not saying GIVE IT TO ME. Just in case you guys feel you need to get it done, (I picked up on some deadline tension) I'm totally available.
