Recover Month! Take someone else's past DoD entry and re-cover it! You don't have to mimic their style specifically, but their version should be used as the "base" for your entry.
This month's theme picked by Crimson.

Songs due August 28 at 9:00 PM Eastern US time.

You sir, are a sociopath who gets off of insulting other people. People such as you, regardless of talent or merrit are a blight upon this world and aren't worth a single milligram of oxygen. Do the world a favor and go hang yourself you miserable, insecure, magalomaniacal bottom feeder.

So yeah, I did the keyboard solos in Neo Link's song. I didn't know that would be a full collab, so I guess it's good that I didn't submit an entry. But this was a pretty awesome month, I must say.

Now...this is interesting. It's gonna be tough to find a good fit for me since I don't play guitar. Hmm...can I cover my own cover? :D

Copying this from the other thread:

Hey that's right! I have over 50 posts so I can vote now!!

VOTED!!

Edit: I might have been too late, not sure if my votes counted or not.

Anyway...

Congrats to everyone who made a song this month - they sound great!

I'll say right now that my favorite was definitely the Starfox Adventures acoustic mix. Very emotional and moving piece. Awesome job to whoever made that one (thesamareaye!!).

I also very much enjoyed The Last March, Chtulu's Asshole, Sounds of Liberty and Ysta la Vista Baby (I loved the Terminator tease at the end).

good stuff. And too bad people really didn't get my song. Because i was pretty sure it was going to be a hit. :)
At least people spotted the Rush reference's (and no=one mentioned the straight from Tom Sawyer end of the synth solo. hehe).

Congrats to the winners, my favorite was samareaye's entry, VERY nice. Congrats dude.


Now, since i can't shred, time to find a tune i like and mimic it. Weird but cool idea for a month.
hehe.

Tibone, I totally felt the Rush going on in that song. I guess the main thing that turned me off with this song was the way the lead guitar was standing out. It's kind of weird to me when there's nothing heavy going on with the rhythm section and yet the lead is just blaring with the gain cranked all the way up (I hear this a lot with DoD songs actually and I don't like it at all).

It gives the song a sort of empty feeling, the bass was covering the low end, the lead was all over the high end, but there was nothing in the middle to fill in the gap. Perhaps if you tried playing the lead with the gain turned down (or even completely off and play it clean) next time it won't stand out so much and it'll fit the song better. Or maybe do a rhythm guitar track to help fit the lead in more and make it sound more appropriate.

I hope this helps. Keep at it Tibone! I'm sure you're songs will keep sounding better and better as you progress. I really enjoy your bass work in the song and I love the clean/acoustic guitar part you had in there. Embrace that shit!! Make it yours!!

I'm honestly really surprised I placed this high despite the over-compression and general unlistenability of my song that was brought up in the other thread, and there's no question Dr Manhattan should have surpassed me... but I'm still really thankful and humbled by your votes, thank you
