  1. A few Van Morrison THEM tunes always go down well. Baby please don't go Gloria Both easy to learn.
  2. Sounds like hard work. I'll give it a bash though.
  3. [quote name='xgsjx' timestamp='1441819280' post='2862069'] in Logic it's called Flex editing. I use it on vocals as not only can you change the speed, you can the change pitch of each individual note. [/quote] Can't wait to give that a bash.
  4. [quote name='alibabu' timestamp='1441794602' post='2861768'] in Logic, you can set the speed to a really slow pace when recording a hard part, and then it will be played back in the speed you select for the project. [/quote] wow!!!! Didn't know that worked. I think I tried it once on a mic'd guitar but the guitar track remained the same and the rest sped up. Must give it another try it would be really useful.
  5. Im in this month, a bit earlier than usual but I had some spare time yesterday and today so its now or never as they say. Hope you enjoy it, I'm not sure what I was trying to achieve but it is what it is. https://soundcloud.com/theboysings/sunny-morning-1
  6. I don't think Blue will approve of the latest turn this thread has taken. lol "God damn Birmingham buses, these assholes are takin the piss" "These fish and chip cup o tea Mary poppins m*****f***ers don't know when they are being schooled"
  7. [quote name='lurksalot' timestamp='1441451647' post='2858972'] maybe , but it would take me three years to be able to croon it as you would in 3 minutes ! and even then mine would suck tonally [/quote] We are talking about penises here I would avoid the use of the word "suck".
  8. [quote name='EssentialTension' timestamp='1441442366' post='2858874'] Ah, yes, Monty Python, The Beatles of comedy. [/quote] It would be interesting to see if blue "gets" monty Python. He was certainly there. I was there but I never got it. Maybe I'm thick and it all went over my head.
  9. [quote name='White Cloud' timestamp='1441395243' post='2858671'] It's not what you know that you don't know that causes you problems, its what you don't know that you know. You don't ever not know what you knew....you still do but have simply forgotten that you know. You haven't forgotten how to play the bass...you have just forgotten that you know how to. Relax and enjoy remembering. [/quote] What?
  10. To kill a tiger to make powdered penises, That is as mean as meanness is. It's taken me three days to come up with that. Three days where I haven't been composing for the composition challenge. I don't want any negativity please. It's hard (no pun) to write about penises when 90% of my thoughts are consumed by its opposite opposite. Obviously not the opposite of 'tiger penis'. That would be weird. It would give rough sex a whole new meaning.
  11. [quote name='TimR' timestamp='1441380879' post='2858508'] There are at least three separate things going on here. One is the effect the Beatles' music had on shaping pop music. One is the effect the Beatles had on teenagers. One is the psychological effect music (and current affairs) has on our memories at certain key moments of our lives. These three things have all coincided in Blue's timeline and left a profound mark on Blue's life. For the rest of us items 2 and 3 have and will continue to happen. Let's not get them mixed up. [/quote] You clearly don't get it..... Tut tut. ๐Ÿ˜œ
  12. [quote name='Dad3353' timestamp='1441326033' post='2858033'] OK, I'll push the boat out... [url="http://soundcloud.com/dad3353/every-seventh-wave"]Every Seventh Wave ...[/url] Enjoy. [/quote] It works for me. I was all at sea listening to that. There were barnacles and seaweed and all kinds of imaginary ocean dwellers splashing around inside my head. Alas there were no mermaids to rescue me. Well done Dad.
  13. [quote name='MiltyG565' timestamp='1441369941' post='2858344'] I personally like Periscope - Any of you use it? [/quote] Oi Oi sailor!!!
  14. I can't believe somebody hasn't said this earlier..... 'Absolutely nothin, say it again'..... Some are great and some are rubbish. It depends very much on the organiser. A lot of the time you get ego twats organising these events looking for a vehicle to showcase their talent or lack of, or generally be the centre of attention. These types are always a disaster and are best avoided. Another type is one organised by the venue to fill the bar on an otherwise quiet night. These are often quite bad but can at times produce some rare and fantastic occasions. The best type of open mic night I've come across is where a certain area or venue is a hive of talent and it attracts like minded musicians, artists etc and a natural entity is born. It is not contrived or agreed upon but simply happens. After a few months of ad hoc meetings and performances it is generally suggested that 'this' should happen more often and a loose agreement is formed that perhaps the first Tuesday (an example they can happen any day) of the month is good for most people and something beautiful is born. These are few and far between and are also the hardest to break into but certainly the most worthwhile in my experience. Which is which? Who knows? Go along and see what happens if you like it then it's good for you.
  15. [quote name='operative451' timestamp='1441215613' post='2857037'] I don't know about all this 'you don't know man, you weren't there' malarkey. I mean, it sounds a lot like the first time i heard 'Let it Go'... [/quote] Are you referring to the song from the movie Frozen? That was a very good song.
  16. [quote name='cheddatom' timestamp='1441352160' post='2858100'] Well you've certainly given us an insight! [/quote] I think he is playing with words.
  17. [quote name='rushbo' timestamp='1441318792' post='2857986'] Twelve pages of people talking about artists who have changed the world/their life and no one has mentioned Robert Johnson? If you're looking for the absolute source of the vast majority of Western Popular Music, he's pretty close to the fountainhead. [/quote] The cocaine cowboy????? I mean, I see where your coming from but it's pretty tenuous and nowhere near the beatles.
  18. The picture keeps repeating the opening line of a shania twain song over and over in my head. "Looks like we made it๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽถ.......
  19. [quote name='Happy Jack' timestamp='1441293527' post='2857684'] I rather hoped the smiley would be a giveaway that this was tongue in cheek. The Wall was written by Roger Waters ... [/quote] Great bassline. So simple yet awesome.
  20. [quote name='Annoying Twit' timestamp='1441291745' post='2857641'] But these are the lyrics that I've written so far!!!! Go grab your bagpipes Bring all your Scottish friends No need to wear anything under the kilt We're gonna party 'til the night ends We'll get some haggis made from Powdered animal penises Powdered animal penises Your mum says it's good for you Powdered animal penises Powdered animal penises [/quote] Almost there.... I think it needs a bit more penis. Also if you find a word that rhymes with penises it would be a hit.
  21. [quote name='Annoying Twit' timestamp='1441273415' post='2857372'] Well thank you very much, because I believe that my previous post is not just an 'are not' but raises reasonable points which can be debated. [/quote] Yes you are right..... I wasn't referring to you. Everything you said is of great relevance as is most of the sentiment being expressed and shared. However the singular counter argument is becoming a bit samey. So no matter what anybody puts forward the retort is the same or some variant of. Its Like playing tennis with one one those machines. Now the machine is programmed to deliver the ball to the centre of the box at 67mph and will continue to do so until it runs out of balls. No matter what shot you return to the machine it will still only deliver the next ball to the same spot at the same speed because that's all it knows. Your lob or volley or straight down the centre is irrelevant to the outcome of the machines next delivery. Occasionally the wind might pick up and shift the machines ball slightly to the left or the right and you may think "ooh you crafty bugger, are you trying to put one over on me" but it is not because it cannot. Eventually the machine will run out of balls and the game will be over. Some people will remain and continue to return some of the balls that got past you and others will pick up the balls and go home. Eventually the machine will be reloaded and its shot adjusted but that will be a whole other game. lol......... (This drinking in the afternoon lark really must stop. )
  22. This is getting a bit "am too" followed by "are not" followed by "am too" and then "are not". Let's simply say that blue thinks the Beatles are awesome and move on because other "am too" there's little else being said.
  23. It's all about the teacher. If your willing to learn and have an aptitude for music you will pick it up, however how quickly you learn and learn correctly is down to the right teacher. Also it's worth mentioning that you must put in the hours practicing. Download a scale app and practice those for hours. Over and over. I think a teacher is critical at the beginning and again once you've reached a level where you can play but find you have questions about technique etc. Good luck. Stick with the lessons for now, if they aren't working then try a new teacher.
  24. [quote name='xgsjx' timestamp='1440769765' post='2853713'] I've had Camel Audio's Alchemy synth on the iPad for a few years & even on there, it's a powerful beast. Apple bought Camel Audio a few years back, which I only found out recently. 2 days ago, Apple released an update for Logic Pro X that, among other things, adds Alchemy as a UAi. They've given the synth a bit of an overhaul & it's pretty amazing & can be as simple or as complex as you like. The sounds it produces are truly fantastic. and to top it off, there's also another 19gb of additional downloadable content for it too (all free as well)! [/quote] Top tip, love alchemy. Must check this out.
