2021 5090 Song Number 13 of 50 (hopefully). I like the verses. I kinda like the half tempo breaks. I don't like the chorus. If you listen closely during the guitar solos you may be able to hear the shower running in the next room. I am…

2021 5090 Song Number 12. Is it a requirement for one of these goofy writing/recording internet challenges to write something ballady in 6/8 time? If it is then mark me as done. I keep saying this, but the songs feel very overly simple…

5090 Song number 10 of 50. I'm 20% complete. Another 12 bar blues. This is the second one I've worked on so far. Expect 30 more. At least. Nothing much to speak of about this one except that "forecast calls for ending it all" might be…

5090 song number nine out of 50. Lots of gimmicks here. Guitarmonies. Drum solo. Four part vocal harmonies singing a minor seventh chord with tons of effects and buried in the mix. Yup, all the standbyes. The guitars are all Les Paul…

Here it is in all of its glory... THIS is the song that Mrs R and I had decided was a suitable response to a request to "Upload something HAPPY, stat!!!!!!!!!" I tried to record it back in 2013 when I wrote it. My muse of many years, who…

And here we go - Edith FINALLY gets it... Actually, she's been getting it ever since I wrote it on the 29th May. I thought it would take a week or so, but it proved to be more of a fight than I was expecting. On top of struggling to sing…

And the 2021 50/90 Challenge is underway. One down, 49 to go. This one came quick and easy, which probably means I've written this entire song already but who cares. I like the chorus. I sing an arpeggio. It's almost like I took two years…

The second song started is the sixth song finished. Not terrible, though there are a lot of bad guitar sounds. The rhythm tone is kinda sloppy. The playing is sloppy too, but the tone itself is more noticeable this time. The lead sounds flubby…

Actually, I like the song. Nice beat, interesting vocals, the guitars came out a bit too distorted.

This is the first idea I came up with for the 2021 RPM Challenge/FAWM and it very much sets the tone for most of what will follow. It's too long, it is pretty much just an Eminor and a Dmajor... everything is going to sound the same this year…

Nice, man! Love the intro. You got my attention with some really juicy guitar tone and a funky bass part right off the bat. I like the open-endedness of the lyrics. The guitar parts are all really good.

The fascists will be gone from power in four days (barring further coup d'états of course)... what am I going to write about when the adults are in control again? This was written for the 2018 RPM Challenge. I know all of the guitars used…

Love the chorus on this one... and indeed, what will we all do when the fascist craziness has subsided?

This was the title track to last year's RPM Challenge. It's only been 11 months but this is the third different version of this I've done already. I thought this would be the best of them but it probably is not. It's faster and it's in a different…

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on. Then after the white UI switch I found a couple of tracks had vanished so I moved everything back to this account and deleted v2.
