Re: Mark's sound in live recordings

I think the band, as a whole, has fallen so in love with their big, loud, "wall of sound" dynamic that they've forgotten how powerful real dynamics can be. It's just who they are, but they could be so much more than they are ( :humina ) if they'd tone it down a little and focus on finding ...

I'm a little disappointed, I was waiting that whole video for Mark to hit the falsetto at the end, but nope... :pout

Also, what's with the Comic Sans overlay? What is this, 1996?

Re: Lyric Writing

^^ these are good ideas! Another bit of my problem is just life. Back in my single man days, I could just sit around my house with my guitar, dinking around and practicing, trying random songs to cover, working out my own ideas. Now that I have a family (including a 1 year old), my time to sit aroun...

Re: What are you watching right now?

Thanks to Hulu, my wife and I are reliving our childhood by watching Perfect Strangers again. One of my favorite shows as a kid, and it still holds up! The humor and sarcasm and physical comedy are impeccable, even from the very first episode.

Re: Battle Of The Title Tracks

I love the big chorus in Dust, but the verses just feel a little light to me. Like there's not enough instrumentation going on. Hmm. Maybe I need to give it a fresh listen.

Re: Lyric Writing

I turned my focus outward with lyric writing once my own turmoil was lessened. Putting myself in the position of others and/or imagining stories. I still keep it personal from the perspective of narration but there's so much inspiration from events outside myself. I could never write a love song or...

Re: Your Acoustic Covers Repertoire

They have a ton of great songs, this one just happens to be easy to play acoustically. I think it's a bit iconic as the opening of their MTV Unplugged set as well.

Your Acoustic Covers Repertoire

A while back, I believe on the old board back when we were ABB.net, there was a thread wherein people posted a list of the acoustic songs that they played on a regular basis - ostensibly for people who regularly went out gigging, but this can go for anyone who sits around anywhere and plays any solo...

Re: Music song structures

I'm a big believer of letting songs go wherever they are required to go. Some need the A/B/A/B/C/B structure and some require more extension. It's my one gripe with AB is that aaaallllways needs to be 3 choruses. What about Bohemian Rhapsody? 2112? Hessian Peel? A structure can be a useful tool but...

Re: Performance Videos

This one is a couple years old, but one of my favorites -- doing a cover of John Corabi's song "If I Had a Dime" (from his Unplugged album a few years back) at an open mic in Minneapolis. *EDIT* You know, listening back to this, I actually played it much faster than I do nowadays. It's fu...

Re: Lyric Writing

I think my problem is, my life got too awesome. I used to write as a way to deal with the loneliness of singlehood and all that jazz, but then I met someone and got married and had a baby and life got all kinds of good. And I'd love to try writing some love songs or something more upbeat and happy,...

Nice!! I love the production on this. Too many videos are just a dude in front of a shitty webcam with his head cut off. Have you thought about putting vocals to it as well?

Also, can we just put a filter on the board to turn every "alterbridge" into "Alter Bridge" please? IT'S BEEN ALMOST 15 YEARS. Not to be grumpy, but come on now.
