Rob,

I read a couple of brilliant idea's here. Wow. The one about the busses going in opposite directions struck me - for it was like that.

Thanks!!

Rob


So have you come up with a couple of lines or ideas? Where were the two buses going? An industrial district? Downtown? To the border; another country? The airport? You could come up with some symbolism based on the destination.

Yeah, or you just take the encounter as an example to show the world, how lousy / great / monotonous your life is... and continue from there.

Rule #1 to me: If it ain't true, it's got to be well recounted :wink:

You've got all liberties you could think of. It doesn't have to be true, it just has to carry a feeling :wink: .

Look at "lullaby" for example... 99% of what I used as lyrics is not true and didn't happen... but the feeling behind all of it is true, and all the things that happened in that song, might have happened :wink: .

I've been away from the forum for a few weeks and just logged on again today - I think the songwriting section is a great idea and widens further still the hook of this site.

My own songwriting inspirations tend to come from things that other people say to me - just a snippet of a sentence or a passing comment. Normally I get the lyrics first, which create in themselves a beat, and in my own mind I then create some basic sounds around the words & rhythm. However very rarely does the melody or music part of the song come out as I first imagine it - normally this is due to sheer poor musicianship on my part!

I'm literally in the middle of moving house - the very understanding Mrs Redster agreed that our existing dining room was too small for the grand piano (and was fed up of eating off of a tray) and also my studio (AKA spare bedroom) was a bit small - so the new abode has a big (8m by 4m)spare room that I have been authorised to use as a studio!

Hopefully the new room will get my creative juices flowing again as it is about 6 months since I wrote anything new and recorded it....

I get inspiration when I'm at work. I'll just jot it down and cram it into my folder when I get home. Consequently I have tons of lyrics just waiting for my muse ot hit. Often times I'll look over what I wrote down a few months later and realize this needs more work or it's fine the way it is or what was I thinking.

A random patch generator. Now this is cool. Unlimited patches. One button push.........instant new patch. They range from simple to unbelievably complex. Not only are the oscillators , filters, etc, randomly selected but the midi parameters are randomly set as well. The note on /offs , velocitys , aftertouches are all randomly porgrammed along with the sound. And as the random patch is as viable as any preset , it can be saved , tweaked , sequenced as desired.

I bought Cakewalk Pro 3.0 a few years ago to try and get my 2 younger sons interested in music. That didn't work - they followed their own musical inclinations and play Irish, Cajun and rockabilly now. But I had a lot of fun with Cakewalk and used some of the random and midi editing functions to come up with this :oops: :

http://bengalrecords.com/laugh-at-it-or ... hessie.mid

Cakewalk 3.0 was such a great toy for musical composition and I couldn't understand my boys distaste for midi and why they couldn't get into it like I did :shock:

That's not cheesy , but does sound like mid 70's midi stuff. I'm sure one could glean an idea or two from that program.

Kinda cool , I thought.

I'm thinking the DX-7 was the first keyboard I owned that had midi, that was '85.

Wow, twenty years and it's still on the original lithium battery they thought would last maybe five. :shock:
