Attention TuxGuitar users: If you want to further involve yourself in the community I HIGHLY recommend that you join the Facebook page. As you have just seen over the past week, the site shut down momentarily probably due to maintenance problems, however, this was fortunate for us. In the past 2 years the site has shut down for months at a time, so if you post songs that you want others to listen to relatively frequently, I suggest you search us up on Facebook and join the group. You will be able to share your tabs without fear of the site shutting down and you can share music of others and stuff, it's pretty cool. JoeBrant has already joined which I am glad about. I do recommend the group to Geotic, Kafiolet, Blackspider, and Scorch; we would love to have you as part of the group! As well as SamGen and Dickerberjude if they are still around. (And anyone whom I neglected to mention)
New song I wrote based around my friend's lyrics again. It's another breakup song, but more upbeat in the chorus. The transitions proved to be difficult between parts, so let me know if I need to rework them. A bit long winded, but here it is!
Surprise! For almost 2 weeks Mania and I were collaborating on our own side project. Mania came up with the idea initially and so we embarked on another epic song full of metal riffs, orchestral strings and much more. We wanted to surprise all of you with the finished project so we worked in secrecy. Tell us what you think was good or what could be improved on.
I've been meaning to write this in Tux for quite some time now, but never got around to it. A while back my best friend got fucked over bad by this one girl and he wrote lyrics about it months ago. He gave me a copy of his lyrics (I can post it on Facebook if anyone's interested) (they're unfinished) and I took it and wrote a whole song around it including a decent vocal line. It's a breakup song, but I tried to make it beaty and sound uplifting (which is ironic none-the-less) Anyways, here's the song. Comment and critique as always:p
A man of 86 years is on a quiet beach overlooking the Pacific. He feels the gentle flow of water between his toes and lies upon the warm sand. With the day almost at an end, he sees the colorful hues of yellow, orange, and pink streaked across the sky, the sun almost hidden behind the ocean's horizon. Content, the old man closes his eyes; his soul drifts into the heavens, and dreams for a very long time.
I changed some minor stuff and tacked on an extra minute. I added a third heavy verse with another solo. Here is the link for the song with better sounds on my YouTube channel with the changes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTErCdFQguU&feature=youtu.be
Hey guys its been quite a while since I've written a metal song (the last one was In The Wake of Ashes written in December and it was more orchestral than metal) I had some free time to spare today and I wrote over 8 minutes worth of material and it does have more metal incorporated than In the wake of Ashes had; I hope you guys will enjoy the song:)
HEY PEOPLE! Over a month since I wrote something new, so here's something different: a trance, rock, electronic song that was written to be catchy. Might revise the lead later on, but here's the complete song! (Listen to this on SGM v.2 because I have a heavy sounding drum beat to give it a trance feel, but it won't play with the standard sound Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth or the tux player on the site.)
