When I bought my first guitar back in the 70s, I also bought a glass slide […]
A long time ago I bought a glass slide, shorty after I had a bunch of glass shards on my floor, then I bought the steel slide that I still have.
i once got my finger stuck in a metal slide.
had it been glass i could have just hit it with a hammer and be free.
rather than panic as my finger continued to swell till the tip was bright purple.
luckily, someone sensible suggested a bucket of iced water. so i didn't have to cut my finger off :)
which was nice.

Vurt learned a valuable lesson. Always use lube.
Donkey...now that I get to listen to the song....I like it. You went big on the keys and I don't like them. :| Well not the mix. I like your organic tones...faucets dripping, car door slams, cat get's stepped on. Full lyrics on this one which I LIKE! It's submitted but shouldn't be "done". Rethink. Another good one though.

Well this theme "Blue" can be interpreted in many ways just not in mood feeling blue. Check the theme specs again.

So much to do, so little time :(
I've got a bit of an idea, but I really can't see me having enough time to develop it beyond a few bars :-? :( :cry:
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Hardware emulation list. I don't really need anymore effects, I need to learn how to use those I already have.

Hi first contest in forever, nice to see everyone again. Seems like the quality of everyone's submissions is quite high and mine will look silly by comparison but oh well, hahaha. Here's some comments!

donkey tugger: I like the harmony and the guitar. Climactic section seems to work quite well, good build-up. Words are creeping me out a little bit, haha.

Tbase2000: Loving the vocals and the overall composition. Really got into it around when the vocals kicked in.

Laguna rising: Happy that someone went for a more traditional blues form. I feel like I want to jam with who- or whatever is making this track. xD

ClaRago: Listened to this one several times. The composition has a good arc and the groove is strong. The vocal sample reminds of Carl Sagan for some reason.

beanpole: Dunno if you remember an entry you made many years ago that went like "I wanna live under the sea, but Neptune's got a contract out on me..." that still gets stuck in my head sometimes!! This entry is equally catchy.

Cheers all.

Thanks, Mr Natural for the nice words.
Thank too milkshakeiii for taking the time to comment. The voice samples are me mumbling in my SM58 mike which I forgot to mention.

Good songs everyone!
If you are curious about how a song from me would sound like and how my singing skills are, i'm sorry to say that i can't produce a song in time for this competition.
I wrote a bluessong with lyrics 30 years ago but it isn't easy to get things sounding as you had in mind when you're a noob like me.
On that i got news about my house owner legally can demand 40% more in rent. The government lowered the pensions with 40%.
So...that too make it hard to relax and be creative.
I'll keep at it but probably in a slower pace. Have to think of ways to avoid eviction and homelessness.
I'll make a normal topic of it when it's done.

Hi Guys. I can't make it this month. I started on a track, but don't find any time and inspiration to finish it. Sorry :-(

Hello everybody,

not sure if I will be able to get my submission ready until Monday. (Which makes me feel a little bit stupid, since I think it was me who suggested this blue theme, and 4.30 minutes.)

Anyway, one reason for this shortage of time is a collaboration on Kompoz. Feel free to comment or just ignore this track, since it's not a part of this competition. I wrote the song a couple of years ago, and now it's a collaboration where Tbase has contributed with much time and efforts. He also managed to involve offthewall and Pstruh69. You can listen to the result here:

Just dropped off my entry, it has timing and tuning issues, finger drums and reluctant vocals. Never mind, they only can get better, surely. :roll:
