I’m trying to figure out how to make original rock & metal songs with full band backing tracks. I’m working on teaching myself MIDI & keyboards (trying to anyway) and I’ve been studying drums & timing as well. I’m just taking my slow time and not rushing myself. Other than that, for a long time I’ve been contemplating on putting a real band together. I might say fuck MIDI controllers and all that junk and just get a real band with real musicians, ya know? I can put out an ad on craigslist/Crumbs to start looking for musicians anytime I want to.
I’ve always wanted to make rock music with full band. It would be fucking awesome and I think I would do okay doing something like that. I think I can make pretty good full band rock & metal songs. Yeah, I believe I can make really good original full band songs that would make rock & metal fans happy.
I make riffs just fine and can play along with a metronome just fine. Only issue with that is that I’m not a speed demon of a guitar player yet but I’m working on it, though. I do want to shred and working my way up there. People don’t believe I could make thrash metal and heavy songs that sounds kind of Black Sabbathy but watch me, y’all. I’ll prove you all wrong. In fact, most of my acoustic songs were originally supposed to be metal ’cause that’s how I heard them in my head, I just wrote them on acoustic first. Once I play some of my older songs in a full band setting, you would see. I would like to make a lot of my older songs into full band versions ’cause that’s how I originally heard them. I wrote a song called “Evil Fred” and I’m gonna try to turn it into a metal version.
Writing full band rock n’ roll music is something I’ve always wanted to do but I want to start making songs in a full band as how I heard them in my head. I’m doing all I can to get there. I just want to write tight rock n’ roll and maybe even some metal. I would love to try writing metal songs for sure. If I try writing metal songs and if they turn out good, I’ll keep going with them. I can sing metal just fine ’cause I sung a couple of Black Sabbath songs on video before.
Someday a rock & metal album by me would happen. It’s the type of music I mostly listened to over the years of my life and I want to start making that kind of music myself. It’s always been a dream of mine and I’m gonna make it happen. Trust me.
