'ATA' - Original Music - Throwback to Highschool Tunes - Rock/Punk/Instrumental

in #music2 months ago


I was hoping to avoid

any throwback songs, as they feel a little like a cop out, but I didn't have anything else that was really worth writing a whole post. I played around with that idea from yesterday, but mostly, its just copy-pasta of that one progression over and over, so until I work on it more, its not gonna be enough for a post here. I've got plenty of old songs I could go through and share, so at least I've got a backup plan when I don't have new tunes, hehe. As I'm sure I've mentioned many times before, I first started recording my own music in high school, though at the time, I had NO IDEA what I was doing, and there was no YouTube to get tutorials on, so I was sort of just trying things and finding out what didn't work through trial and error (mostly errors).

Listen to ATA here...

This song was one of five

or six recorded toward the end of my senior year in high school. As you may be able to tell from the bad guitar tone, I had plugged by guitar directly into my laptop, using a 1/4 inch to headphone jack converter. The guitar progression isn't particularly exciting, however, there is some cool stuff that happens with the little lead fills. I wasn't particularly adept at shreddy stuff at the time, so I played a little tapping line, then used a bunch of effects (in Garageband) to have it swirl around. I considered that VERY advanced at the time, haha.

Hope you enjoy!
