Feedback on Finished songs / Re: The Golden Age

I really like this a lot @Wicked Deeds . It is powerful in it's honesty and simplicity. Both vocals sound wonderful both alone and together and your guitar sounds just right as well.

Nice addition of the second guitar there at the end to take it out.

It's nice to hear a true feel good song.

I think this is quite a good idea @pompeyjazz as its quite easy to fall behind (for me anyway) with what has been posted. Some good songs on there & some I haven`t even heard yet. Was a bit disappointed that I wasn`t on it till I realised I haven`t done a song.  ;D
I agree with @Boydie that scoring could be discouraging for new (or old) members. I think the Forum Faves idea though is a good one as its only one members subjective opinion.

Good stuff John. Just the thing to sweeten the time when sorting socks or painting the shed  ;D

@Boydie, yes I see your point re inexperienced new members and the auto score. I think we've just all been scratching our heads to try to make SOTM run more easily.

Still we've got this Forum Faves trial idea now, but it would be a real boost if that could be highlighted on the forum until the next month Faves are published. So the banner and/or sticky suggestion is just the ticket. Nice one!   ;D
The Bar / Forum Soundcloud Playlist

So, just as an idea I have knocked up a Soundcloud playlist of forum songs over the last month or so. It's just an experiment really to see how it is received. If anyone objects to being on the playlist, please let me know and I'll remove the song. Otherwise, please feel free to share / repost / etc, etc.......

@MichaelA @PaulyX
@PaulyX , yeah as you say your automated scoring  idea has been previously ruled out, although I personally am in favour

I have looked in to scoring systems I the past - but I just feel it goes against the supportive nature of the forum and would discourage people from reviewing if they had to commit to a score

Put yourselves in the shoes of a new member posting their first songs and getting encouraging comments (which I am sure they would) and then getting a score of 2 out of 10

Some people would see this as a “yardstick” to improve - but it may devastate others (everybody is different)

I also have an issue with objective scoring of something so subjective (especially as there is not specific criteria like there may be for a specific competition)

Again, some may say that the different opinions will get reflected in the different scores -  it we all know that even if someone got twenty 9/10 scores and two 3/10 scores they still may feel deflated

I DO however like @MichaelA idea of “forum faves” instead of song of the month - if someone picked a monthly favourite or 3 favourites we could “showcase” them for the next month - either as stickies, so they stay at the top of the board for the month, or use the banner headline with links to the songs for that month

Just some food for thought and I look forward to seeing what develops...

 Hi Kev,

 Nice to hear you again ;D.  I'm a huge Bowie fan, so this got me from the off.  Loved it.
 Great groove and atmosphere, lovely production. I've spent a very enjoyable 30mins listening to your playlist,
 and I'm still there ;D. Thanks.
 The only thought I had, was that the constant arp synths got a bit too much, needs a bit more contrast....somewhere ;D
 I can hear some big, distorted power chords, strategically placed, working well here.......or not ;D ;D

I don't have anything to add, but I wanted you to know I listened and enjoyed!

@pompeyjazz , anybody is free to make playlists of whatever content they want on Soundcloud. I think it would be a great idea, if you had the time and inclination to do this. If anybody didn't like it, and told you so, you could simply delete their track from the playlist.

Good luck if you do decide to trial this!  ;)

@PaulyX , yeah as you say your automated scoring  idea has been previously ruled out, although I personally am in favour.

When I mentioned the Forum Faves idea on the last Friday Zoom Call, funnily enough I also used the Desert Island Discs analogy - except it being the guest host's fave songs of the month, not all time Forum Faves.

I'm going to write up the trial of this over the next couple of days, then we'll see if it is going to work. Song Of The Month could always return in some form or other, but there just seems to be a general consensus to try something different for a while. Might be this, or a tweaked version of what we've being doing all along. No harm in experimenting for now...
