Great Guitar Songs For a Band

August 10th, 2016

Like all great guitar based bands you need some great guitar songs but what exactly makes a great guitar song? Well there are a number of aspects such as an irresistible riff, a solo or jam that still impresses even after several times of listening to it and a final power chord that blows you away, causing you to replay the song time and time again. It is these aspects that make up some of the greatest songs such as Purple Haze – Jimmy Hendrix or A Hard Day’s Night – The Beatles.

It is within the notes of the song that determine the greatest guitar moments, which is evident in songs such as the above as well as Johnny B. Goode – Chuck Berry and Brown Sugar – The Rolling Stones. The notes of these songs portray a mixture of desire, fury, despair and joy but they do it in such a way that makes you feel all of these emotions at once. A great guitar song for a band has the need to say something new and to say it loud. This is because rock has a sound associated with impendence and taking a stand and the guitar is essential to undertaking this.

Great guitar songs have the ability to combine a mixture of styles and pull it off perfectly and it is great guitar songs, such as the ones that I have previously mentioned that give not only new and emerging bands the ability to gain an ear for music, but it also allows individuals too as well. It is through listening intently to songs that allows you to be able to distinguish between notes.

No matter how advanced you are with your guitar playing there will be some great guitar songs out there that are perfect for you, one example of this can be seen within the number of great guitar songs out there for guitar beginners.

Back In the USSR – The Beatles, Suffragette City – Bowie and Basket Case – Green Day as well as Molly’s Chamber – Kings of Leon are all prime examples of great guitar songs that are perfect for bands to play and learn from. Although all of these songs are pretty simple where the guitar work is concerned they are all memorable for the effect they had on the music world.

There are some impressive songs around that are relatively easy to play as they only consist of a few basic chords but by no means does this take anything away from the songs; they are still highly entertaining and well known. Green Day and The Beatles are two examples of this, songs by these artists are considered to be simple and easy to learn, making them the perfect starting point for bands. Talking of starting points for bands, Mr Tambourine Man – Bob Dylan, Wish you Were Here – Pink Floyd and Viva La Vida – Coldplay are also great guitar songs, perfect for new and up and coming band.

All of the above examples of music are all very diverse songs and they all have a difference when it comes to the levels of difficulty associated with playing them but nothing can doubt the fact that they are all great guitar songs.

It is through learning songs such as these that you are able to learn about correct pace and rhythm, which will help you advance onto more complex songs and of course will help you write your own.

Tips For Mixing Songs

November 7th, 2014

I have got some basic and seemingly trivial advices regarding to mixing a song I want to share with you that are mostly missed by beginners.

Reverb & Delay

Personally, I think it’s important to keep your song a little ‘wet’. By wet I mean to apply some reverb and delay to your tracks — yes, even to the drum tracks! Note, it can be a real challenge to find a happy medium between wet and dry. Of course you shouldn’t get too dry — the listener has to notice that there is some reverb or delay, but more like on a subconscious level. I want to point out here that I’m talking about general wetness and not piercing delays you would want to use for a solo, like for instance in “No No No” by Deep Purple, or a highlighting reverb dosage at the end of a vocal’s verse like it’s to be found in “School” by Supertramp, or even an excessive, but beautiful use of reverb like in the solo of “Fools” by Deep Purple as well.

Since the individual instruments and their elements respond differently to one and the same reverb and moreover not every instrument requires the same ‘wetness’, you mostly should choose one particular reverb for each instrument. Naturally, it’s not desirable to have your tracks ‘swimming’ in reverb except you mean to do so.

Normally, drums (especially the snare since it’s so punchy) require only little and short reverb. I’d recommend to equalize it a little ‘bluntly’ so you get a soft sound impression. Piercing elements consisting of mainly high frequencies and a fast decay like the snare make your reverb stand out more than for instance a bass drum or a crash. The bass drum doesn’t have these penetrating frequencies and a crash has a very slow decay which both makes the reverb hardly noticeable.

Especially guitars and vocals require more brilliant reverbs since otherwise they tend to gain what I would call ‘vague outlines’. It’s up to you to choose the right reverb time and to determine its appropriate percentage, but especially with rock guitars I would prefer a delay because the overdrive sound tends to lose some ‘punch’ in combination with too much reverb.

In my experience, synthesizers, organs, and keyboards tolerate more reverberation without beginning to reverberate penetratingly.

Critical Frequency Bands

A big mistake I’ve often made in the past was to stress the low middle frequencies. You probably know that middle frequencies and especially the low mids are responsible for a warm sound impression. The issue I often had was to set up my sounds individually until they sounded great in themselves, but only without the rest of the tracks. And if you set up all your sounds separately, you’ll probably find that every instrument sounds full and balanced, but in the complete mix everything suddenly starts to sound awfully fuzzy and blurry.

There is a trick to doing that properly. You sort of have to consider your whole song as one instrument in order to equalize it properly — I know, it can be quite hard, especially since you have to analyze and set up every single track in a proper ratio to the others. As I wanted every single instrument to sound warm and full I almost every single time added a certain amount of low mids to middle frequencies (in the range of 200 to 500 Hz — that’s the critical point). Unfortunately these frequencies, if they’re accumulated much, tend to make the song sound ‘blunt’ and kind of stuffed full with ‘non-brilliancy’.

I made the experience that it is advisable to take out a certain amount of these frequencies especially with guitar, vocal, and synthesizer tracks, and to instead add these to bass guitars and bass drums.

Nohow would you want to take these completely out, but you’ll be astonished how full and balanced every single instrument sounds in the general view by reducing and shifting specifically low middle frequencies.

One more thing: Earlier I had been using loudspeakers that used to emphasize the high and low middle frequencies. Using non-linear loudspeakers can be a great issue with mixing your songs — back then I thought that all my master bounces were great and brilliant, but when I listened to them through linear loudspeakers the bounces sounded ‘as dry as a bone’. The ultimate key with monitoring songs is to firstly make them sound great through linear loudspeakers and secondly through non-linear, maybe even trashy ones.

Take An External View

There are some things anyone who is too much involved in mastering a song can easily misjudge.

It can be a big mistake, for instance, trying to make all instruments sound equally loud — that doesn’t really work. Well, actually it does work and it’s possible to make all tracks sound equally loud, but it’s probably not what you’re really looking for. I tried this myself and had to realize that it would pose more difficulties than it would solve problems. The big issue about this is that the listener doesn’t know on which element to focus and this makes listening quite taxing. Best, you create a mix that makes perfect sense to the listener and to which they can simply ‘abandon themselves’ without focusing.

The key is to so to speak allot a leading role to one particular instrument group and then to emphasize certain elements of this group. As soon as you have chosen a group to ‘play the leading role’, note that it is exactly the same important to also decide what particular element of the group shall undertake the leading role here. With drums I would always put the snare and bass drum into the foreground, with vocals you would probably choose the lead vocals and reduce the volume level of the others, and with let’s say two guitars you’d pick the lead guitar or, if there is none, the one that has more high frequencies or so. It’s the exact same thing as the golden section in painting.

If you’re now thinking: “Yeah well, but now my other instruments are kind of drowned in the rest”, I can reassure you — It’s not gonna happen. One often underestimates how well quiet instruments come through in a mix if they’re equalized cleverly.

One more advise for rock songs: If you want to make your song sound powerful, put your drums into the foreground (atonal instruments sometimes require more volume than you would expect). Next, the vocals and one of your guitars (if you got some), then the next guitar together with the bass guitar. At least I underestimated for a long time how much drums actually contribute to a powerful sound impression.

And one more psychological advice: Don’t let the graphics influence your mind and power of judgement. I know that sometimes they distracted my acoustic perception a bit, so I often hid my software interface while monitoring, or just opened a track mixer window in order to fully focus on the acoustic impression.

My brother and I recorded the brilliant song “White Room” by Cream and shot a video, too. For the video soundtrack we took our studio recording, put a ‘Space Designer’ on the output track, and adapted the reverb to the acoustic features of the room we were shooting the video in.

10 Suggestions To Creating Your Own Songs

October 4th, 2014

Composing music is an art that needs a lot commitment that most people prefer never to endeavor into as a result of the fear that their music might not be completely accepted. Simple techniques will help in picking out your own personal wonderful compositions consist of:

1. Have actually a music structure objective
Before embarking on composing it really is good to know why you’re composing the song. Could it be for you personally or for other people? This can extremely influence what and tone in the music.

2. Understand your mood
Music is an expression of how one feels and therefore it is very important to understand what precisely the music should portray.

3. Always focus on lyrics before composing the music
This may seem ridiculous but it works perfectly for inexperienced composers. Whenever one arises with words first, she or he is able to formulate the best beats that will fit into the words. Composing lyrics also assists anyone to know very well what words to focus on and thus to be used more times inside track.

4. Tune in to your head
For many celebrated composers, music starts words which carry on saying by themselves into the mind. For amateur composers it is advisable to write down such words to come up with words. During such a session, a quiet environment is the most ideal as it encourages one’s degree of thinking.

5. Study on compositions of other people
Having made your own personal music is very important to compare everything you have made in what others have come with. That is why it’s crucial that you have a musical role model/mentor with whom you’ll compare works. This also helps one to learn about areas where they have to improve and/or changes needed by themselves compositions.

6. Use music composition computer software
Music structure computer software is some programs that aid in writing, music by helping arrange one’s work and allows someone to see just what these are typically playing. The application is sold with a playback feature allowing the composer listen to what he has develop and so result in the necessary modifications.

7. Find the right instruments
Accompaniments make music to undoubtedly appear better. Therefore it’s important to choose those instruments that will bring out the required sound and beat. A grand piano is a great method to begin because it brings out the notes more obviously.

8. Seek truthful opinions of other people
It’s good to allow others hear what you came with since they are in a position to guidance you which areas need improve. Someone who just isn’t since close would be able to give unbiased views.

9. Do something different
For example learn to play a new tool that may result in the overall quality of music better or exercise an octave greater.

10. Practice makes perfect
Never stop practicing even though you might think you’ve got it all pat. A daily training routine goes quite a distance in yielding a desired outcome.
