QuoteISSUE: The song I wrote is extremely like the new song bucket just posted to his new site. I sent a copy to wizardbeard a few days ago before the new page with the basketball dude was even posted. I just don\'t want people to think I ripped his song off for the contest. pm me your email if ya wanna hear it. The final completed material will be posted on YouTube.

EDIT: After listening to the new BH song a few more times... My song has some similarities, but it\'s not as bad as I thought. Didn\'t mean to bug. Wizard...?
How funny! Maybe your song is influenced by the new LE track 1.

Bucketdog

^^^ no, I have not listened to the new LE for about 2 weeks. I\'m more of a 1989-1998 fan. That time period was my favorite of bucket\'s music. I love the newer stuff too...

Maybe that is due to the everlasting inspiration Buckethead gives us when writing music. I wouldn\'t be so surprised. Once I composed a piece that has a riff sounding similar to Broken Mirror.

Viking, you had like 3 months to do it....what happened?

Viking...

QuoteViking, you had like 3 months to do it....what happened?

Well,
 
I can do something but it\'s without drum or bass and bad recording..

DisembodiedLoaf

Bucketdog - Wow! The quality is great and the technical proficiency is amazing. One riff reminds me of Traveling Morgue.

Bornalive - Also amazed by this. The mix of ambient and distorted was really cool and it was awesome how the chord progression got dissonant in the middle of the solo.


I finished writing mine a while ago but have been having trouble recording. Hopefully I can get it done by the deadline.

badgerbot

Wow! is right.  I just watched bornalive.  How very clever.  Hey Bucketdog, we should use this thread for comments on the posted entries or set up a new "comments" thread.  Folks are going to want to respond after viewing the videos.  Looking to you to tell us where to do that, I think you said here is good.

Hey, you\'re not supposed to drink that embalming fluid!

Bucketfel

wow, there is serious talent here.
 
I loved bornalive video. He should make a video for the next Buckethead album XD
 
 
Bucketdog is winning in the music department XD
He works on the farm,
He makes fun of me,
But thats the lats thing youll see,
Cuz im gone use him for something that you wont understand

Bucketdog - is that the same song that you said sounds like Crack the Sky? I didn\'t think it sounded like it except for 1 little part maybe.

Thanks for the nice comments about my work. I liked everyone\'s contribution. For now, my favorite one is DisembodiedLoaf\'s video. Has Lovecraft been an inspiration for this one ?

QuoteOne riff reminds me of Traveling Morgue.
I listened to traveling morgue and it\'s close, yes. But I did not intend or try for it to be the same and nor did I want it to sound the same. I guess after listening to bucket for so long his influence just sticks with ya; and yeah, this is the tune I was concerned about sounding too much like "crack the sky". But it didn\'t, just a small part or two, barely noticeable.

On another note...I\'m a little disappointed with the turn out of the contest. I thought we were gonna have more people. When I posted the "contest update" thread I got over 10 people confirming their spot... This will prolly be the last contest I host here unless more people post by later tonight. Everyone who has posted so far has great songs, atmosphere and effort. I\'ve listed to all the entries several times and have jammed along with a few too. I wanna see more. I\'m really enjoying the music! And that\'s what this contest is about.

 Thank you (everyone) for all the positive feedback. Enjoy the contest.

peace
