heres my second likkle song ditty effort
while learning biab2011.
just a ruff song idea etc etc.
called "Renegade Radio".
link>>
last song in song player at ..
www.motagator.net/bmanning

frankly i'm too close to it.
feel free to critique//beat me up..lol.
particularly interested if people
think the radio dj talk idea at beginning n end of song
is valid.
listen over mini ear buds .
as well as the special effect (sorta siren)
in two song places cos i dunno if it works.
no probs if people think its a
junk idea. cos i get a ton of new song ideas
each month. my prob is getting time
to do each song the way i want it.
so if folks think its junk it'll go to the
junk bin..lol.
all the best.

Hi manning,

Very creative! I'm listening through headphones as I type. Sounds to me like you're really getting the hang of composing, arranging, mixing and mastering. The groove of this song is excellent. My feeling is that you might even be able to bring it a little further forward in the mix, too.

Your approach to music is always fresh and fun to listen to.

All the best,
Noel

noel.
cheers for the comments mate.
lots of biab learning yet for me.
actually re arranging etc ..
years ago i was criticised for being too structured
when i did songs.
but i just always felt that "normal consumer"
expects songs to be structured a certain way.

lol...i'll share a joke with ya mate.
years ago i was always haveing debates withn chamber music folks/friends.
they were always complaining they often couldnt get anywhere
as brilliant musicians (way better than i will ever be.)
the prob was the music genre wasnt accessible to most people.
(cept for some cogniscenti.)
what i mean to say is its allright haveing wild special chords
with flatted this's n sharpened thats (i have to check meself on
22nd chords which i'm partial to.)
the debate will never end tween the simpler songwriting approach
and the complex use of extended chords n inversions etc.
typically what i go for is hooks n a good beat..
i'm a simpleton..lol.
god bless.

Hi Manning,

Great work. Especially for someone who is just getting started with BB! And I always enjoy some good humor!

cheers fellow pg'ers.
they are just daft song tests while learning biab.
yes i like daft humour in songs..lol.
my other objective while learning biab was to prove
to myself that biab can rock out.
cos some people had said to me over the years ..its for jazzers,
or elevator music , or other doodle comments to put down biab.
but, as i'm discovering, once again its all in how the tool is used.
and is very deep. for example yesterday i ws mucking around
with a real trak guitar , the arrange was fine but i wanted
to change the sound , so i reamped it after dropping in the daw.
stuff like that.
anyhoo after a few more months gonna post some triks in the pg
triks section. i got lots to discover yet.
thanks for the comments.
