Someone just accused me of ripping off Dethklok on my song "Above It All"... Which is funny, because the only song I've ever heard by them is the one that was in one of the earlier Guitar Hero games.

Kind of hard for me to rip something off that I've never heard.

Listened to it, I like dethklok a lot, but your song doesn't sound like anything of theirs I've heard.

I sent them a PM asking for them to tell me what song they think I'm ripping off...

It wouldn't be the first time something of mine is eerily similar to something else... In fact, funny story, this song (Which I did way back in 2006), has the exact same melody at 0:48 as the song "Lonely Bird" uses for the chorus off of this album (Released in 2010)... The two songs are ridiculously different in overall style, but the melody for those certain sections is almost exactly the same save the very tail end.

What's funny is that back in 2006, I didn't even know Vocaloids existed, but now I'm a big fan (There's even a vocaloid in my forum sig *gasp*), and a year or so ago I found this "Lonely Bird" song, which happens to have a melody in it that I wrote 4 years prior to finding it.

I suspect it was just a major coincidence because of the culture gap, but it was surprising for me none the less.

High School

Apparently one bad exam grade = I'm irresponsible on school work and that colleges won't accept me and that I'm going to end up on the streets looking for work.

Yet they still don't realise that I get A's and B's this year, unlike my freshman year where I had a C average.

They're trying to be supportive parents, but they're doing it wrong.

I can't really relate to what you're saying. My parents know that I'm doing well at school and working my ass off, so when I get a bad grade they treat it as a "one off". And I did get a bad grade before in this new school... well, not a terrible grade. I got a 65% in a maths test because I'm not that good at tests/exams (I keep making stupid mistakes for some reason).

However, at school I'm the only one who ever figures out and manages to do all his maths homework, even the tough ones (everyone else keeps getting stuck which I hate because while the teacher is discussing their problems and helping them out, I'm just sitting down and staring because I knew it all). I'm also always the one to point out a more efficient method to the teacher when he's working out a problem with a method that takes longer.

All of that is thanks to a lot of dedication and work, so thankfully my parents understand and don't annoy me with lectures on how I'm irresponsible when I happen to not do so well. Perhaps you should try and convince your parents that you're working hard for your A's and B's, but you got one bad grade because you either didn't work hard enough or it simply wasn't your day. Nobody's perfect after all.

I got a 65% in a maths test because I'm not that good at tests/exams (I keep making stupid mistakes for some reason).

I do that a lot to. I have a B+ average on math quizes, but on tests or exams I mess up. Sometimes I catch senoiritis (this is my last year of high school) and blow off homework for a week or two, but I still get A's and B's. My classes are a joke and my Mom does not realise that.

However, at school I'm the only one who ever figures out and manages to do all his maths homework, even the tough ones (everyone else keeps getting stuck which I hate because while the teacher is discussing their problems and helping them out, I'm just sitting down and staring because I knew it all). I'm also always the one to point out a more efficient method to the teacher when he's working out a problem with a method that takes longer.

I can totally relate. There is a lot of mindless people in my Pre-Calculus. For example, this past week we've been going over the SAME THING, because there are four people who don't get it. The rest of the class and I just sit there and sleep. At one point I just got completely frustrated and just yelled "OMG guys, 10pie / 5pie = 2 therefore the PIE is cancelled out... that's how you find the reference number." Then I put my head down and sleep again lol. The math teacher is Chinese so it's really hard to pay attention.

All of that is thanks to a lot of dedication and work, so thankfully my parents understand and don't annoy me with lectures on how I'm irresponsible when I happen to not do so well. Perhaps you should try and convince your parents that you're working hard for your A's and B's, but you got one bad grade because you either didn't work hard enough or it simply wasn't your day. Nobody's perfect after all.

I've tried man. There was time this past couple of weeks where I was out one night and I had a Music Theory exam the next day (we covered easy stuff). Basically, after my math exam I texted my mom that my friends and I were going to hang at the billiards place and then go out and eat somewhere near town. She said okay. Later on that night, they wanted to join me for bowling (because it's $5 for three games in my bowling club) and it starts at 730. However, we couldn't get back till 8 to get my stuff. So when I got home my Dad says "you can't go bowling, poor planning on your part." I told them that I am 18 and I am responsible enough to go bowling and come home before 11PM, and he was said "no, you have a music theory exam tomorrow." I've explained to them so many times about how easy the class was because half of the students were not actually eligible to take it. (They were suppose to be interviewed by the Band Teacher if you did not already have a class with him). They told me I could not go bowling. I ended up not studying that night but played games and then I got a B+ on the exam.

It doesn't make any sense! Once I get my driving license on Monday, I'm going to get a job and only come home to sleep. In the end, they'll still think that I am unable to take care of myself and I am stupid therefore I still need a tutor.

Before the redesign there were two buttons, 'Reply to Post' and 'Reply and Quote'. The first one is now gone, so he clicked 'Reply' and forgot to remove the quoted text. Simple as that.

Hey guys, I don't know if this is the right place for a post like this, but I didn't want to risk making a full thread just to have it locked. Anyway, what i'm looking for is advice for an absolute beginner on creating electronic music using a computer. Specifically i'd like to create ambient music. Like, what software to use, any external tutorials, etc. Any tips would be appreciated, thanks.

What's the best thread/place to get a female vocalist for the february nac?

I asked in the NAC thread, but I thought it'd be appropriate to ask here too and I want as much help as I can get.

Also what do you guys think of the cheesy lovey pop lyrics I wrote for it?

"A fever I can never sweat
A thirst that is never quenched
I'm soaking with anxiety
wishing you were here with me

You're my addiction
withdrawl symptoms
my medicine I'm sick"
I just need another fix

Sarcasm detectors on the internet are buggy.
