Great White (Soundcloud link)

Great White
c.2017 Bob Buford

Fun little surf rock song inspired by Xtra Styles 3 PAK, POP Category, Bigwave.sty. I grew up loving the Ventures, Beach Boys and all the surf music, though I was totally landlocked and miles from anything resembling a surfable wave. Still those magical guitar sounds inspired me to work on my guitar chops way back then.

I used a Fender Subsonic Telecaster for the lead guitar run through a Johnson J Station set to a maxed-out vibrato preset. BIAB tracks were output to Reaper and guitar added along with the scary buoy bell. Swim faster!
Some fun, boy!

Enjoy,
Bob

Sharks definitely know how to survive. I'd be surprised if humans make it on the planet for those many millions of years. I love shark movies and specials. Awesome, powerful creatures, eh?

I enjoyed this Bob. You snared me with the intro... very creative. Then that great driving melody kept my attention all the way. Nice playing!

All the best with the contest smile

Great song, but the cymbals sound way to harsh to me.

Totally agree. In this particular STYLE they just ride the cymbals mercilessly from start to finish. I know "busy" drums were part of the style back then, but these bugged me. I even went on YouTube to listen to some Ventures and others to compare. Drums back then were as busy, but not so "brittle." Not sure what that is, but we did a remix a few days later that toned it down to tolerable by EQ'ing highs down on the drums. Unfortunately I had already submitted the original song with the STYLE intact.

Thanks for listening and commenting,
Bob smile

Thanks, Jon. I know what you mean. I have to listen to "Walk Don't Run" now and then to remember how motivated it used to make me. Still does. And I still LOVE those Beach Boy harmonies.

Thanks for listening,
Bob grin

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190
