There are some alternative/indie rock songs that would make a great additions (lots of great keyboard parts too). Is anyone else a fan of recent alternative rock?


I want to learn to contribute soon too. I just found out about customs and I'm trying to catch up. I have a musical background (keyboard, guitar, drums, bass) and have played in bands that play rock, jazz, metal, and prog. I am also familiar with recording softwares like reaper. The only thing that holds me back right now is I'm working on my master's degree and sometimes I get busy with school work. I'm gonna start working on this list once I get up to speed.
