    Yeah I need a better title.

    Hello and welcome to this thread, which will be your one-stop-shop for posting your music! Just to clarify, this means recordings of you playing or singing or someone else performing a song that you have written.

    There are a lot of fantastic musicians on Smogon, and hopefully we can make this a successful thread filled with talent!

    Me? I like to dabble with music in my spare time. Here are two songs that I've done:

    Memories of Old - a song about a boy who runs away and comes back to find his father on his deathbed.

    Natural Beauty - unrelenting cliché.

    I also have a third song which I recently did live at my school's performing arts 'festival' as they like to call it, and I hope to have a video up soon.

    Now it's your turn, have fun :)

    Well I had another account, but apparently I'm not allowed to post anywhere... :P

    I do like covers of metal songs with saxophones on my account.. eh it's kinda hard to explain, but have a watch if you like the idea :) ( complete with solos ;) )

    The Trooper - Iron Maiden

    Fade To Black - Metallica

    The Trooper is in better quality, cos I got a better microphone. Also some piano stuff on my account but meh.

    Also, @ Alchemator just had a listen to both your videos. I like Memories!

    Alchemator, you have a good voice! Wow. Cool.

    I can't wait to see this thread begin bustling! I've seen Smogon's writing and art, but never it's music.

    I thought Alch had made an art thread, but it turned out to be a music thread. I CAN'T DECIDE WHICH IS BETTER

    Anyway as a nearly professional kinda musician this'll be really fun to watch and I'm looking forward to listening to some quality music. And you never know, the composing bug might hit me *suggestive wink*

    And that's some very nice music you've got there Alch. I'll have to look out for your name in music stores as well as bookshops =D

    This post in general excites me! What do you nearly professionally kinda play Ritter?

    Also when I get a couple of minutes spare I'll listen to all the stuff here, the sax stuff sounds really interesting.

    I'm a semi professional Trombonist. I'm going to be doing a few performances soon, and If they're recorded, I'll Wap them on here. I'll be playing Tuba Mirum, from Mozart's Requiem, with an Amateur Orchestra, and that'll hopefully be recorded, so Should have those up :) I've got a few original compositions, but I've not had them played by anybody yet. My main passion is doing arrangements of silly songs for classical instruments. I've got love for Pendulum at the moment, and I'm doing a String Quintet arrangement of The Island Part 2 (Dusk) so That should be interesting if I get it recorded, I'm going to get my arrangement of Take on me Recorded in a week, for Music AS level, so I'll post a link of that on here :)

    I sing in the Australian Boys Choir (a professional choir) and I've toured in Australia twice and in Singapore and Malaysia once. We perform frequently and do weddings and stuff (btw I'm the Leader =D)
    So yeh. And my voice hasn't changed, I'm still a soprano =D
    I also play violin and piano, just not very well

    Ritter that's really cool! Gonna be a bummer if you uh stop being able to be a soprano though sometime but still that's impressive being in the national choir. Any videos of you guys singing up on youtube or whatever?

    I suddenly feel so inadequate! Heh. I'm in the school choir as a Tenor/Bass/Whatever-they-need-really-so-I'm-actually-a-Baritone-who-likes-hyphens. The higher-ups have a lot of ambitions for it and we're pretty good, but I don't think we'll ever tour anywhere, that's awesome!

    So we have a semi-professional trombonist, a saxophonist who does covers of metal songs (go listen, you won't be disappointed), a globetrotting Treble, an amateur grindcore writer and me.

    Does anyone else want to come out and shock me with their talent? Later we find out that Fatecrashers has played the kazoo for Obama or something, this is madness! Keep it coming guys heh.

    Not my videos, but if anyone likes accoustic guitar solo stuff like harmonics improv and just general messing around on guitar my friend uploads that on this channel but yeah if anyone's into that I think it sounds pretty good :)


    also, I have a didgeridoo too. We could totally form a cross continent band... it'd be an instant hit... ;)

    I always wondered if there would be one of these...

    I learned drums for a few years, but have since swapped to guitar, as most of my family is musical. I have quite a bit of free time, so I tend to record covers of stuff, and may make an EP over the holidays. Here is one I have done though:

    Let me know what you guys think.
