LATEST UPDATE 10/31 - Halloween 3 pack (Metallica, Death, Judas Priest) 2x version GUITAR: EchoOfMystery GUITAR: EchoOfMystery 2x version GUITAR: EchoOfMyste

Well these definitely aren't the original mixes so I thought it was best to use the 2002 artwork. When I do get around to"These Boots" it will be the original mix because there are no stupid lyric ble

Thank you to Cheesecake Militia for making preview videos for all the Chris Cornell related tunes that I've released so far. All the links in the database and my thread have been updated with them but

LATEST UPDATE 6/25 - Frank Zappa - Dumb All Over

46uKXDp.jpg

 

GUITAR: EchoOfMystery

"Dumb All Over" was one of the last songs from what would become the 1981 album You Are What You Is to be written. It filled a gap between "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing" and "Heavenly Bank Account" in a suite that was already being performed live in 1980 and would end up, with this extra song, as sides three and four of the two-LP set.
Like the two aforementioned songs, "Dumb All Over" addresses the subject of organized religion. Over a repetitive but catchy up-tempo vamp, Frank Zappa recites a rhyming monologue. His voice is altered with a flanger and a vocoder -- it sounds deranged and insistent, perfect for this anti-preaching preach, and somewhat similar to "I'm the Slime." On-stage the special effects were dropped and the vocal part became a rap. The message is simple: Why make differences on the count of race or religion? Everyone is all equal in their dumbness. Religious fanatics, televangelists, and Jesus freaks are no better than anyone or the people they try to convert, sometimes with deadly means (religious wars). Their call to arms is ridiculous at best, dangerous at worst. Zappa concludes that since God made everyone all in his own image, "If we're dumb/Then God is dumb/(An' maybe even a little ugly on the side)."
The rise of televangelists, Christian fundamentalism, and Republican ideals in the early '80s scared Zappa. While "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing" is a cynical look at the people who believe preachers and give them their money, "Dumb All Over" attacks more directly the work of those preachers and the propaganda they disseminate.

I have a last minute update to an old favorite coming this weekend. This one was long overdue.

I was hoping for a second you'd be adding pro keys to Arcade Fire's Reflektor, but then I checked and it's not one of your customs. Eh... :)

After reviewing my Zappa WIP list and being overwhelmed by the sheer amount of songs left to do I'm announcing the return of:

LOL :D I have been playing this and I thought it was fine as-is.

 

I am curious on what you think Pro Keys still needs. I have only played expert but I noticed in C3 tools that lower difficulties have more notes, so I peeked in Reaper and saw that lower difficulties chart a different instrument at times?

 

PS I am also a fan of Zappa, but honestly I think it's too difficult for the game, in fact few customs have Pro Keys charted.

When I opened it up I saw the abomination that was my bass charting 5 years ago. The vocals were passable but definitely not great. Now it's as good as it's gonna get. As for Zappa yes it will be difficult more often than not on all instruments but that's the fun of it ;)

Well I made manual Pro Keys reductions for Don't Eat the Yellow Snow, I can make the same for Saturday in the Park. Let me know if you're interested or if I should just keep them for my own use.

Is this a one off or will we see some more multitrack updates?

 

Depends on MrBurpler. This was his idea and execution. I'm not a fan of them for releases but I understand some of you are so why not

Yes specifically? Ideally whatever songs are available as stems/multis I’d like to see released. I have the Close To The Edge (album) stems and a some point i’d like to go back and update my customs.

Forgive me, AJ, but I have to nitpick a little bit. The actual release artist for "Just the Two of Us" is Grover Washington, Jr., and the song originally appeared on his album Winelight. Of course, people recognize Withers more readily than Washington, so if this was an intentional decision, I can't argue much against it.

 

Either way, great song, and I for one am happy to see the full 7-minute version. Thank you!

LATEST UPDATE 7/9 - Alanis Morissette - Heart of the House

GUITAR: EchoOfMystery

 

"Heart of the House" is one of my favorite songs off her criminally underrated sophomore album. It's so soothing and beautiful that whenever I'm in the dentist chair getting a cavity drilled I play this song in my head and I'm able to withstand anything.
