Here it is.

I've alot to say here. To begin with, the title is similar to that of my last song, Harmonics. That song was named after the prominent Harmonica. This is named mostly because i think it has a nice Melodic feel to it. I also think that General Rock is pretty fitting. Oh, and it has nothing to do with an actual melodica.

The original version of this song was horribly corrupted. It had a solid spot of static in it. What caused it i have no clue. So I took it back, made some changes to the song (including making the guitar more upfront and balancing the instruments) as well as making some changes.

The end result is this. I'm rather proud of it, and i particularily like the Piano Solo, how the Drums lead into it and the Bass leads it out, and the Piano ending is likely my favorite.

The end of the piano solo fades out into the lead guitar, which i really don't like, but i favored over the original idea of a Record Scratch cutting the piano off. I don't like this because it feels too much like its fading out and starting over again.

Its not particularily high quality, and if you listed closely its nowhere near perfect. There are minor glitches - trust me, i recognize truly good work - but for the most part its pretty good, i think.

Yes, this song WAS made in GarageBand. So its not all that original, but i want to stress that, even though premade loops were used, this is a very original project that i put much effort into over a period of 2 days. (Songs have been made over longer times, but this isn't one of them). I chop up, resize, alter, reorganize, and more the various clips. What was little over a minute and a half of 4 instruments playing is now this.

Originally i was going to make it a little more of a harder rock, with a dirtier guitar solo in it, but that didn't work. So that guitar was entirely removed. One of the major problems is that the lead guitar and piano don't mix too well, and thats another reason for the poor exit of the piano solo (or really, its THE reason). While i originally intended the Piano to have a larger role, it didn't work, but i'm still happy.

You can expect a remastery of this song soon, in which some of the repetitiveness (i mix it up pretty well, but the clips themselves are, for the most part, the same) will be removed, the song shortened (i am going to chop up the section after the piano solo a bit), and hopefully i will find a better exit to the Piano solo (though i am happy with the way the brass mixes right in).

But enough of my rambling. Enjoy the song.

Sincerely,
Tyler J. Jackson

Meh, boring.

That's all. I don't know what makes you think you're better than the ppl that got the top 5...idiot.


Foxtrot-Zero responds:

I'm sorry, what?

Nowhere did I say I was better than anyone, and I don't know where you get the brass to start lying about what I said.

Toe Tappin'

Yeah this is nice - I think the bas and guitar go nice together, and the ragtime piano sets it off.


People find this review helpful!
Foxtrot-Zero responds:

Thanks for the Review!

Yea, i thought the Bass that kind of bounces around went good with the straightforward easy going guitar.

The piano is labeled "Soulful" and i really like it too. The one used in the ending is the complete second clip, but the solo in the middle is a clipping.

Like i said, not happy with the piano solo exit.

Thanks Again!
