    Destructoid headbanging?

    As if I don't have enough things going on as it is.

    I brought this idea up a little while ago in the music thread. It kind of died. Maybe it's because it was a terrible idea, or maybe it's because it was too awesome to even comprehend. I basically had the idea of making a Destructoid-centered band. It sounds unbelievably corny when I type it out, but goddamn would it be awesome.

    If you're only hearing about this for the first time, I'll say what I said in the music thread: It would be alternative (going across a wide-range of genres like rock and metal) with chiptune. Kind of like Anamanaguchi I guess, but not just rock. I visualize almost a video game-like experience. I dunno.

    I make a lot of chiptune-style music, so that would be my contribution to the group. I also work in FL Studio, so I could do the producing--unless someone else is better at producing than I am. Each tune (recorded at a specific tempo) would be given to the producer who would then compile it into a song. Other than that, it would be great to get in a bassist, rhythm guitar, and drummer. There could be a lead guitar, but it might meld with the chiptunes too much. Unless the lead guitar is only in certain songs. I dunno.

    Anyway. Just an idea. Take it or leave it. I know there are musicians here who have made me wet in the pants, so having you aboard would make ok for all.

    Possible instrument list?
    Rhythm Guitar -
    Lead Guitar (possibly) -
    Bass -
    Drums (unless they're too hard to record) -
    Chiptunes - Manic Maverick

    Butts.

    I play acoustic guitar, so if that's ever needed I'd be happy to contribute.

    EDIT: Also, I DO COCAINE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This makes me so much better than Gyrael.

    Yarrp, I remember you saying that in the music thread. I also remember a few others being interested, but I can't remember who.

    If you've got space for a vocalist, I'd be happy to audition.

    While violin would be epic, it wouldn't fit in every song. :,C

    I dunno about vocals. I originally thought they'd be cool to have, but I think they might blend too much into the music. Unless we go for a Shoegaze feel.

    Yes'm, I can indeed electric. But my semi-hollow is out of commission currently so all I have is the acoustic. And I lurve the music from Katamari.

    Hmmmm...Just the acoustic...

    *Thinking noises*

    Well, seems like all we have are acoustics, so we might just have to work with that until someone gets an electric. We might end up doing Katamari-style music (the acoustic stuff), unless someone can think of another genre that would fit excellently with chiptunes.

    Anyone know/own a bass guitar? As for drums, like I said in the music thread, I'll probably end up putting those in during production since recording a drum-set is hard as hell (and expensive). Unless someone is capable of doing that, then sweet.

    I WILL NOT GIVE THIS UP! NO! IT SHALL NOT HAPPEN! PROBABLY!

    Or maybe I should just let it die. Or maybe I should figure out a better way of going about it. Or maybe I should cover myself in peanut butter and sing show-tunes. The latter seems the more reasonable choice.

    I can guitar, and I'm all about electric.

    More of a lead player than rhythm, but can rhythm pretty good if I do say so myself.

    I'd pay good money to see that. Or I can give you recommendations for songs. I recommend anything that Rose sings in Gypsy.



    Anyway, I think you should just come up with a beat and have other people work around it. It'd be like a fun experiment.

    Okay, awsum. Any way to record?

    Hmmm...So many guitars...

    XD I'd sing that all day. Oh man.

    And that's not a bad idea. Maybe I'll give people a basic chiptune and have them add to it and then send their recordings back to me so I could put it all together and maybe add more to the chiptune area to play off of what they made. Though, there's still a problem with who will be doing what. There are multiple rhythm guitarists, and people who can do lead guitar even though it's not really needed. And I'm terrible at choosing. It might end up being a different person for different songs. Also, there appears to be no bass...

    That's pretty awesome, though I'd rather keep the planning solely on Dtoid and wherever else that isn't some other giant community.

    I'm sure there has to be a way for that indaba thing to be friends-only.

    You can create sessions open only to people you exclusively invite, and post sound files for others in the group to modify and add notations to. It's pretty sweet.
