im happy with 6/4, while it isn't all that unusual it does change the down beat of the track. just go for it and see how it sounds

and so now our competitors are:

2nd-Edition - Blue Haze
Suspended-3rd-Chord
Rawmin - Flying Colours
Binary Pulse
T7Online
Writers Block - The Lycanthrope
Zenon - Lawless Land
Endlessnumber - Nightscape
Nav - Lightwalk
Newskies - Tripdance Basscore
Octane Vein - Lois XV's Reanimated corpse
DS Magnum
Smurfbeatz - Move Out of My Way
Rig - Furniture Monster
Sine Rider - Rubber Junkin'
Sanryd
HotActionYiffFur

Thanks for posting the links to the other song. However... Rig's link is to the wrong song.... a couple of the songs have the same HTML link.

Anyways... just letting ya know. :)

I'm having a hard time thinking up what to write. I might just submit it as it is now. Spikrodd I can only imagine what you're going to do. D:

9/8 is semi-conventional. I've played a song written in 9/8 and in no way is the timing awkward. I say go with 7/8 if you're tossing up between the two.

Neither, both are too conventional to be fun. Too late though.

whether or not its conventional, they are still both odd time time signatures, and are allowed under this competitions rules.

Sorry for the bland submission, just wanted to at least have something to submit. It's short, only about 3 minutes long. if I ever get the chance I might work more on it, just been very busy with life.

You did better than me. Mine's only 1 minute long. D:

I'd thank you for the extension but I doubt I'll work on my song anymore.

no way man, i'd say your in for a chance, not only is it a very nice track, but you've managed to get a good groove going in 5/4 which is what the comp is about

i'm currently laughing at the confrontational faggot who is 0'ing my submission daily, and i have a fairly good idea of just which confrontational faggot it might be.
