Lots of stuff I'd like to help with. Let me know if you could use help, especially drums and bass.

It would be awesome to have more Fall Out Boy and coldplay. Folie a Deux is one of my favorite albums.

Some of the Coldplay stuff is residual from my old FoF days (I'm talking 5+ year old charts), some stuff from X&Y and Rush Of Blood To The Head. They probably need to be done from scratch again, but shouldn't take too long. If you have any other ideas, I'm willing to work on stuff up to a select few songs from Ghost Stories (I did not enjoy the most recent album); including various B-Sides from their early days, some of which I believe to be as good as the album material. I already have quite a few charts in mind.

 

I really love Folie A Deux as well, it flows incredibly well. Compared to most of my charting material, those songs could be very easy to whip up and put out when I have the time. I already have the list of songs and audio prepared.

I'll think about it. Usually when I work on this stuff, it's two to three packs at a time. But right now, it's the Kansas stuff, collaborating on the Zappa project, and various other charts amongst the packs.

From their older stuff, I love Talk, 42, Bigger Stronger, Charlie Brown, Glass of Water, Gravity, Lost!, and Help is Round the Corner. Those are some of my favorites. But I'd be happy with literally anything you put out by them, so go ahead and focus on what you wanna do.

Can I also suggest Crest of Waves, Animals, One I Love, Thing I Don't Understand, Gravity and Atlas? :)

Many songs from the first four albums are on my list of to do, which is the main focus, but out of those suggestions some are on my list already:

 

Talk (Already did this for FoF once, just needs upgrading)

42 (still a maybe)

Charlie Brown (was a maybe, but I'll add it)

Glass Of Water (one of my favorites from that era and I will certainly be doing it :))

Gravity (still not sure on this one, I feel like its a lengthier version of Amsterdam, but I love the synth arrangements on it)

Lost! (Pretty much done already for FoF, just needs vocals and someone to add keys and convert it, I have sheet music for it)

Thing I Don't Understand (YES YES YES)

 

All the others I need to listen to, I have never heard Atlas and other ones need more listens before I decide (Bigger Stronger and One I Love). Probably will add Animals and Crest of Waves to the list. 

 

A bit of history: I was introduced to Coldplay through the song Speed Of Sound, but never got into them until Viva La Vida came out, X&Y still remains my favorite. Saw them on the fifth leg of VLV tour, last time they would do smaller venues, sadly. My timeline of their work is divided by this album and ordered as such: Early days (1998-2001), Prolific/Creative Era (2002-2007), Popular Era (2008-2010), The Start of The Decline (2011-2013), U Wot M8? (2014-present).

Due to demand and the requests I've been seeing here on C3, I've gone ahead and added some Coldplay Twofers. Since I'm working on a lot of other stuff, I will put out some small two-song packs while I work on the bigger ones. First few are mostly upgrades, but some new songs as well. Includes everything I currently plan on doing for the first three studio albums.

 

Some upgrades from old charts I can't do since Harmonix released them after I made them (Clocks, Fix You), so no loss there.

Still have not released much yet, outside of the Zappa songs (my current bottleneck along with real life). But plans in that area are changing and should open me up to working on my current crop of releases.

 

Some changes/current status:

Little progress has been made on the Kansas Pack (that dang guitar stuff and declining interest) and still plugging away on the Yes Pack. I may just find the time to sit down and plow through the guitar all at once.

 

The King Crimson Discipline pack has been upgraded to a full-band release of the whole album using the Obzen/Oscar charts provided by Sideshow. Those will have the audio replaced with the more recent 2011 remix. The Sheltering Sky has been added and work begun.

 

I have begun work on a Jethro Tull pack, consisting primarily of the animal-themed songs from Heavy Horses, while current collaborating with others on fixing my previous charts from FoF.

 

Work has started on the first round of Coldplay songs. Once fully tempo mapped, everything else should take right off.

 

Pack priorities have been moved around as well. Information added and removed.

Still excited for Kansas  :D... If I could do guitar (or about anything else), I would offer help there.

 

Also, it looks like I see new Yes songs?!

I'm shifting focus on my charts for the next week or so. Still working on Zappa charts, but my focus will also be on the Kansas pack. I hope to get it done in the next few weeks.

 

 

The Yes pack was announced a while ago, only new stuff is Yours Is No Disgrace, Tempus Fugit and Into The Lens, two of which are just upgrades.

Oh, I didn't see a few of the songs before (I think I saw that there would just be songs from those albums)

Hey thank you nsw, i've been always a fan of your work since fof forum many years ago. now im retired of charting scene due to my focus on professional drumming oriented to prog, i am very happy you will work on amazing packs, i would have loved to chart some of these in the past so in a way i feel your hard work as part of mine, maybe i wil make some guest contributions in the future, (? XD) 

 

you can touch all of my work i did with sideshow, ajfone and the other c3 guys, some of these are yours. XD

Thanks for the comments and praise! I'm trying to practice my instruments as well, hard to find the time.

 

Prog-wise, I'm not familiar with Camel yet, but I do plan to listen to their stuff at some point. There will be upgrades to my old VdGG and ELP charts, with some new ones planned. AJF is actually working on some new ELP right now. More Marillion is planned, upgrades and a bunch of new tracks. I would absolutely love to do Magma, my problem is I haven't listened to anything beyond the first album, will get to that soon.

 

New prog I'm not as familiar with, it depends on the group. I'd have to look into it.

 

Thanks again!

I'd like to make an update post:

 

First, I apologize for the length of time it is taking to do these songs compared to the awful mess the list is. Real life comes first (stress and other things) and I'm having difficulty focusing between charts I'm working on. I have a number of projects going on in the background, and I made the mistake of promising too much too soon.

 

Customs will be released almost weekly, depending on how well things are going....

 

My Main List of to-do (excluding the other songs and ideas section) has been in some particular order, and is the only actual progress I've made. The only other work is tempo mapping in the Other Songs sections. The list is updated almost daily as I work on charts, but I've been moving portions of it around constantly. 

 

I have added a CURRENT FOCUS section at the top of the main post, which should mentally prevent me from moving everything around. These artists' songs I want to get done first. It may indicate what's coming out soon or may indicate my effort has shifted to something else, based upon current progress. This section will only change every 1-2 months or so, again depends.

 

Current Focus:

 

Kansas, Frank Zappa, Iron Maiden, Yes, Coldplay, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Planet Gong

Thanks for the encouragement!

 

I actually looked back over my old chart of Talk, and I did a terrible job of it. The modified date says early 2010 (5.5 years ago!!), which at that point I had only been charting for nearly 6 months, knew nothing of proper methods. I may just do this one from scratch.
