I'm currently getting increasingly frustrated with UCAS, I clicked the reply button a good 20 times yet it does nothing, bloody bollocks, why can't I just phone up the Uni to say that I accept thier invitation?

I'm not sure if it actually updates until the message has reached the Uni. stop hitting Send and just check tommorow ;)

You have 'till May to accept anyhow.

I actually sorted it out, turns out you have to click on the individual course codes and then reply to offer, so it's just my lack of comprehension of a ****** system that let me down

Just rerecorded most of MG's commission, I tried editing it but that just completely ****** everything up so I decided to start from scratch, managing 2 guitars and a bass part in the past 30 minutes, a piece that I wasn't overly happy with to begin with (mainly being just the limitations I have) has just gotten worse, with my reasons being that I don't have any percussion, seeing as the deadline is monday I won't have any other chance to rerecord the drums other than tomorrow meaning I had to cram everything in today, but the piece shall be delivered as promised.

You still talking in Shakespeare's tongue good lad? Wicked seems to suggest you're at least in 2002. Language evolves... and sick has been in common parlance for long enough it might as be in the dictionary. It's already in the Wiktionary.
Sick is one step too far on the "Bad = Good" scale for me. Surely the only place left to go now is "Man, that's so ****!" relying only on vocal emphasis to tell whether the "****" in question has a positive or negative value (or people will have to start calling things they really think are **** "bakelite" or something).
 
@memorium - I had no idea my request would cause so much trouble. Gomei... But thank you for persevering. From the demo I heard earlier, I'm sure it will be awesome. :)

What am I doing?... Practically zonked out in front of my laptop, been a tiring day. Went to meet with a recruitment agency and they kept asking the same question over and over again: What have you been doing for the last eight months? My answer - learning Japanese and volunteering. No matter how many times she asked, my answer was still the same...

Haha, it's more of a fault on my part, no need to be sorry, I'll definitely get it to you, but it'll sound much rougher than the original version I recorded, the only thing I'm not happy with at the moment is the 2nd guitar part, it's a bit out of sync with the rest of the instruments at this moment in time

... Use a click track? It'll all be in time then.

Lol. You record multiple parts by ear? That's really, really not advised. Recording everything to a click track is harder, but everything will fit perfectly at the end of it. The only ones who used to record without a click were those who would perform as a full band and hit 'Record' while all being recorded seperately. Trying to record multiple parts by yourself, and layering them, without a click? That's just ridiculous man lol. It'll take you way longer. Jus' learn to stay in time with a click, and you'll never have the problem again. I mean, if you get recording in a band, you'll just have to do it. I remember the time it took to record some of my old bands stuff 'cause it was my first time to a click; took ages, but was worth it in the end.

Ohhh! Is a click track a metronome?
Kinda, and Godot I've managed to do it without and nothing sounds out of sync from what I hear, I know how I want everything to sound in my head, all I need is a countdown and I'm sorted, even if it's not the best method in the book, it's just the way I work :)

It is rare that I become frustrated with ANN, though their decision to re-direct me to their UK domain each time my browser restarts is quite disgruntling.

This being the case, I have penned a strongly-worded letter to the Times, so to speak.

That's the real problem though - from what you hear now. I remember having to re-record things because weeks later I noticed one of the strings was slightly flat (Re-recording solo's or riffs involving string bends will have this effect). There's nothing to say that in a week or so's time you wont hear the problems.

More to the point if you intend to do something musically in your life (Be it in a band or education), it's likely you'll need to use a click track. Why not just learn now? The finished product will invariably sound better, and it'll arm you for later life. It's a bitch to get used to at first, but eventually it's worth it. If you had used a click track from the start you probably wouldn't have had the problems you were experiencing.

Also, with regard to you knowing how you want things to sound in your head, I'd honestly be worried if you started recording without that lol.

Is it not possible to just create something with just an idea or beginning? Or was that what you meant? That's got to be more fun, it is with writing.

Why the heck you'd just record **** for no reason (with a click moreso) is beyond me. I've heard of some people literally just playing for hours with everything on record to listen to a later date but... bah. I can see how you could start recording but, the way Memo is talking about this, he genuinely has to actually well... do something. You'll always just freeplay something, or work some basic structure/progression out before you start recording. It's too much effort to wire everything up properly for a good quality recording if you're just gonna dick around, really.

Ah, most delightful, I shall look forward to seeing it printed in a future issue old chap.

With string bends I generally notice the problem right away when I playback along with other problems, I'll try a click track at some point when I start writing more Rock/Metal again, I'm not disregarding your advice in any way, shape or form.

Yeah, that's cool. I just thought it might make life easier for you is all.
