Hi, everyone,

Here is a rough demo mix of a light pop/rock song I am working on.
Since it is my first finished work, I need your feedback on pretty much everything

The name of my musical project is Unnote and I have done the songwriting (music, lyrics), recording, performance and mixing...
Thanks!

Unnote - Have I Been Charmed?

The mixing/EQing could really use some work. Try to think about each instrument as living in a certain range of the frequency spectrum. Where they overlap, EQ cuts can help keep the parts from sounding jumbled. Experiment with it. I think you'll hear an improvement there.


And here's my daily beat for Sunday night;

What better way to kick things off a new week than a banging high energy beat? Let's get this party started.

Same for "How Can I Refuse You" - why does it have the garage band/pop-punk sound when it's a love song/ballad? It has a very pleasant melody that is not helped by the arrangement.

"Footsteps" works for me as it is. Like it a lot.

Let's take things down a notch, and mellow out for the moment with this chill beat... Go ahead, make up your own lyrics and sing them out loud. Nobody here is going to judge you.

Thank you. I wanted to kind of go for the indie/rock/pop sound.
I will work on the arrangements, I started recording a few songs again last week as I have made a lot since 2007 but the multitracks just vanished through time, so I am in the process of re-recording tracks/re-writing midi so that I have all the parts in the hope that in the future if something comes up with another engineer they could help out with my songs without losing all my work.
Regards, Andrew.

I just uploaded 14 various demos from some of my albums since 2007. You can check them out here: https://soundcloud.com/andrewbradysongwriter

I am hoping to re-record old songs and write more, and hopefully get in touch with someone who can help further my sound as I have never collaborated or been to a studio, I have no intentions of going to a studio yet but definitely want to learn stuff here, and maybe get a helping hand mixing wise.

Super-Saws. There's reason they named them like that. You dig?

It is a new era. And time has come, for a new Rocky theme. Rise to the challenge. Take home the glory. This track can take you there - and beyond.



...Didn't upload a beat yesterday, so I'm giving y'all a Bonus Beat tonight.

Don't listen to me but I like that they're not over produced. I mean half the people here would explode if they heard some of the stuff I listen to. I mean I think Robert Pollard is a genius but if he posted anything off Bee Thousand here he'd get told to re-record it! I'm not saying they don't need more work but there is an aesthetic there I wouldn't want you to polish out of it.

Cool. I like R&B and I like your style. The production is pretty tight and your voice is great. Could use some stronger hooks. And a more dynamic feel overall. I was thinking about that "Talking Body" song... the whole "li-e-i-f" hook. People love that stuff. Anything to keep songs from sounding too much like background muzak. I'm glad you posted your page. Was nice to listen to them all.

I like that 009a beat, maybe a bit more percussion or something else moving on some parts? and perhaps a subbass ?

I just saw this forum today. I'm happy to see that Davido is gone

Rough demos.

I'm just a drummer and I don't play guitar at all so all the instruments are virtual so the music takes on more of an electronic feel than I'd like but, it is what it is.

Well I can't wait to hear what you come up with next. I hope you'll post it here when you're ready to.

For the rest of you, I know I've been neglecting my beat-a-day marathon. And I apologize. But now I'm back!

Clyde the Spider

Hey everyone, I've been away from recording for a while, but I'm excited to record some stuff I'm writing lately!

I'm going for some sort of Hoedown footstompin thing with this song... of some short.

I have to decide wether to do an instrumental for the first half of the bridge, or cut the bridge in half.

The lead guitar parts were just sort of rough tracks to flesh things out. I'm going to be redoing that. There is more work and details to add, but it would be cool to see what people think of where I'm going with this one.


Here are the lyrics:

There is a spider that lives in my window
Watch him trap and eat his prey
Do not crush him or evict him
That would be mean, do you know what I say?

Spidey needs to have a nick-name
From now on, he’s known as Clyde
We are friends, but when I get close
He runs into the corner in order to hide

Chorus:
Hey, little Spidey, you don’t have to worry about me
I ain't going to hurt you, I just want to live and let be
Talking to my spidey helps me to clear my head
Clyde takes time to consider all the things I’ve said

Verse:
Without a single day of training
Constructing works that are so fine
Clyde is a prodigious expert
Shaking up the industry of web design

He could be a college professor
People would listen when he speaks
He has an innate understanding
Of geometric shapes and construction techniques

Chorus:
Hey, little Spidey, you don’t have to worry about me
I ain’t going to hurt you, I just want to live and let be
Talking to my spidey helps me to clear my head
Clyde takes time to consider all the things I’ve said

Bridge:
Wake in the morning, brew a cup
Talk to Clyde so I can see what’s up
He don’t know, but he says he’s got a hunch
That it’s eating fruit flies off of my banana bunch
