Comments on Robert James's stuff

A simple 12-bar in 6/8 time. I almost like it. The guitars are all Les Paul. Turn the page again It's time to start anew From the top this time don't think we can make it Don't see there's much chance Round and round and round we…read more

Oh yes those are LP’s allright. Sound great!

Eh. I thought it would be cool to write something in drop D and then play it on a 12 string. Then I could drop two D's! HarHarHar. The lyrics are about how scary some of Donald Trumps followers are. If he wins in November I'm moving to…read more

You’d be very welcome in Europe Robert but believe me we have our own problems. Nice work

Another cool track

This one had throw away written all over it from the first moment I thought of it. It's my second entry in the Ice Cream Chords challenge over at FAWM.org. I kept this one in Major and it's just as fruity as one would expect. The lyrics are…read more

Nice one

I'm really disappointed in this one. I don't like it. I wrote it last night and recorded it today. I think if I changed the lyrics to be about hookers I could probably sell it to Poison or Motley Crue. I feel dirty and ashamed of myself…read more

Like it dig the vocals

I wrote a blog post about Donald Trump. The gist of the statement was that every four years we joke about how if the Republican Presidential Candidate wins the general election, where are we going to move? Canada? UK? In the post though I…read more

Nice one

Written in pieces back in 1994 and 1995 during my "arrangements that are to complicated for humans to actually play" phase. Recorded in January 2015 during my "Ancient History Revisited Volume 2" phase. Mixed in September 2015 during my "I actually…read more

The final RPM Challenge/FAWM song for 2015! I'm done! Garageband has this running at 66bpm in 6/8 time. It probably should be 132bpm in 3/4, but you live with what you have, right? I didn't really plan on saving this for last as it was one…read more

Great topic for a song! Good lyrics, kick ass guitar. Rock on!

The rhythm guitar is a scratch track. Can't you tell?

Great track mate

Have you seen the movie The Theory of Everything? I highly recommend it in a "I hate these damn movies that make me ball my eyes out" kind of way. The lyric to this song is sort of inspired by Dr Hawking's diagnosis. He's given two years to…read more

He was diagnosed at 21, told he had 2 years left – 3 years at most – and now he’s 73! Glad the story inspired you. Good topic for a song. Good lyrics, good music, and the vocals does it all great justice, sung with feeling.

This song has been the biggest mess of the month. It was the second idea I had, the first that wasn't dropped. I have fought with it more than any other song I've ever recorded. The drum parts have been recorded twice. They rhythm guitars have…read more

I personally believe this to be your best February contribution. Good lyrics, nice rifts, vocals are slick and smooth, and talk about a choice, juicy lead break!

7/8 time and the song form is A-B-C-D-A. Just a goofy little attempt at not repeating sections. This is the second time this RPM I've done that. Sort of. I don't know where the idea for writing about Darwin came from, but for me when an…read more

Love it, and the lead guitar break is especially juicy!

I woke up this morning and looked out the window at all of the snow. The endless landscape of blank, frozen emptiness, and I just felt sick. I wanted nothing more than to go back to bed and sleep until May. So what did I do to combat this depression…read more

The guitar work out in this one is particularly tasty. Intriguing topic. “Hiding from the white” – for real! Keep it real, Man. The drums and bass and lead guitar and rhythm and chord arrangement and vocals and mix down and mastering – all of it ROCKS!

50/90 is over. What do I do now? The plan was to do the same thing I did after RPM and FAWM ended... just start another album in a month project. Well I started it, but it's going really slow. There are only five songs in the works, and…read more

Awesome !!!! Cool guitarwork, love the vocals

I liked this one a lot more before realizing (after all of the tracks were finished) that the guitar part is awfully similar to a Throwing Muses song from the brilliant House Tornado album. My plan to double all rhythm guitar and vocal parts…read more

Sweet lead guitar break, nice vocal mix, interesting arrangement of chords.

The first song completed for the 2015 RPM Challenge. This is historic for me in that it's an RPM song that used a real amplifier instead of a software simulator. It's not my cool Marshall, it's my Fender who once took a bath in gasoline (long…read more
