So I only know so many songs completely... so I decided to record one.

I totally effed up on some of the chord changes and some the vocal timing is awful... but I did it! and I'm kinda proud.

It's a cover of No Children by The Mountain Goats



It's really the first time I've ever even tried doing a song by myself.

hahaha you've got teh john darniellez down.

FYI, the stream tags use WMP (on windows), which doesn't support m4a so it doesn't work. i had to go direct.

Lame I was trying to sound a bit harsher and angrier then him. Wink

Nicole said I should have kept the first few takes I did, "they were prettier". Which given the nature of the song is why I kept the one where my voice was already blown.

Note the stolen bandwith from Aen, for some reason the uploader isn't working for me.

You're too kind. Nicole was right, some of the earlier takes I did were actually what I would call good... but they were vocally maybe a bit too similar to the original. I needed to hanan it up a bit.

it's art

Razz


i think whore house is more like when you post a song to promote your band or a gig but who cares. well i always feel awkward promoting one of my bands i try not to do it and just record a song and put it up here because you guys' responses are really motivating and makes me realise it's hypocrite to say i just do it for myself, i don't, i love feedback.

art shack, whorehouse, it's pretty much the same really it's not pub babble and it's not straighton geargeekery.

I like it!

I never learned a full song until I joined a band and to this day I don't remember a full cover for the life of me. I always get some then give up, or stealz it for my own song (since I end up making shit up on b/c I can't remember or learn it properly).

keep it up, that was refreshing.
