Go get a singer. There are lots of people who will do it for cheap. Just go to a karaoke bar and pick one of them why don'tyu?

Yeah, go get traeshed at a Karaoke bar, find a singer ... or somebody to have sex with while you're at it ... remembering that the more traeshed you get, the less you'll care about who the hell you go home with and for what intended purpose.

Just don't get the two confused ... or you may wind up with someone who'll sing while you're trying to have sex ...

And back to instrumental music you'll go ...

I don't think so...
Listen to anything by The Rippingtons/Russ Freeman and you'll see the caliber of musicianship that adding vocals would just be plain insulting. The same goes for Steve Morse / The Dregs........ Jean Luc Ponty......... Al DeMeola............ Satriani......... Steve Vai...........Spyro Gyra...........Lee Ritenour............Craig Chaquico............

These are just a few of a long list of masters that intentionally write music without lyrics because they're just that fuckin' good.

Oooopps, I forgot. Your taste in music is all that counts.

Opinions dude...............

So how would you sing "Pipeline"?

7/20/2008 6:36:42 PM

With heavy reverb and a touch of tremolo.

I don't actually think this is as stupid a theory as you may first think. So I'm gonna step up to back you on this idea Traeshy. Your following posters are assuming a certain level of expertees but I know for a fact that 'some' artists can only 'do' instrumentals and wish that were not the case. They long to find a half decent singer to enhance their stuff because they honestly feel it gives then more flexibility and a wider appeal. And, dare I say it, some male composers see 'finding a female singer' as an opportunity to turn an ordinary song into a shag anthem (pardon the bluntness)

never never band

7/20/2008 8:22:18 PM


A Shag anthem?
What the hell is that?
Do you mean the composer is trying to get the girl singer into bed?
Or is he using her siren calls to lure other gals into bed?
If it only it were that easy,,,,,every guy would be writing music and Female Vocalists would be paid a damn sight better than they are.

Either way I think that's nonsense.
Instrumental music is a scene of it's own..
I do like some of the lyrics that have been written for Monk tunes and Horace Silver tunes etc. It's always interesting to hear what the melody brought to someone elses mind..But those kind of tunes stand perfectly well on their own.
Lyrics are generally so literal, so leading, the great thing about instrumental music is that the themes that arise in the listeners minds are very personal..

We got a female singer courtin' us right now. Haven't heard her yet.

BUT I agree that MANY bands out there should scout around for a singer. YA have ta make sure though, If they don't have an amazin' voice, than the better have stage presense out the ASS!

BETTER yet, check around in the band, you may have hidden talent who just need to push themselves to learn to sing, write lyrix & vocal melodies AND play the drums or guitar. Ya know?

Just don't go with a bass playin' singer, we don't want another STING out there.

-just my take on singers & instrumental bands that wish they weren't...

I don't have any instrumental songs. It's just that my voice is two octaves above the normal human hearing range.

I drive dogs crazy.

If you heard Satriani's songs with vocals, you would know that not all instrumental virtuosos should write lyrics, let alone sing. (And Joe is actually a pretty good singer.)

No, A ... I'm not a bit bitter. Life's better off not being bitter.

For a better buffer for one's soul, is to buttress it, so as to not be beaten into blind bitterness, to be baited by buffoon or boob, thus boiling one's blood by binging on bales of bitters, and ... okay ... I've no clue where I'm headed with this b b b thingy from here ... :-D

I have though, always lived by the rule: "Never date the lead singer."

Mark my words people or you'll be sorry you didn't listen ... Trust me, I know. I was the lead singer.

This is a very amusing blog!!!

I found a singer for SuperPuss but I'll still be writing instrumentals as well.
I had originally planned to write lyrics to Valentine but the words just didn't do the emotion of the song justice. Some songs are never meant to have vocals.
Perhaps Valentine might never have received a Golden Kayak if I had written vocals for it.

How about those that do instrumentals because, their songs were created to be...instrumentals? I do both with and without singing. I do look for people to sing on some of my instrumentals, but not all. Whether I find someone to sing on my material or not, I still make the song where it is strong enough to stand by itself if need be.

hello dear folks,
having had a singer in our first band (a wave rock combo called "illusion perdue?") 1994-1997, we at Magnetfisch (found 1998) deliberately chose to remain instrumental until 2004, the year our singer joined. We still have some instrumental tracks (on the forthcoming album there will be 2 of 'em)

rock'n roll!
