comment Making alternate picking palm muting sound like downpicked palm muting
Oh yeah, forgot to mention the whole reason I was trying to make downstrokes = upstrokes is because playing all downstrokes at that speed is way too hard for me, timing slows like you heard. Yet somehow it's easier on StD. Also, no pedal, Fender Mustang 1 digital amp set to "metal 2000" and plugged headphone jack into line in of computer. Also the strings probably need changing.

comment Is this a modal song?
Alright thank you, I was always told the opposite, that it all comes down to the chords used.

comment Is this a modal song?
Hey thanks this is a very nice explanation, and thanks for the quick answer too! I'm a bit confused about one thing though. If a song can use modal chords and not be modal, what really makes a song fully modal?

comment Vocal tuning (metering, not autotuning)
Hey thanks, I know it's late, but checked out the Vocal Trainer. Seems cool. Wondered about the price. OUCH, $200. The others sound good. Also I found a nag-ware app for mac called Vocal Lab by rustykat that does a pretty nice job of both pitch and frequency on a chart. It's free to try, but 15 to buy, and believe me it will let you know, every 2 mins or so. That's the only catch. I don't have money but when I do I'll be tossing money their way. Thanks, I never knew tuners worked differently. Neither did the Logic forum apparently.

comment Is the time signature switching every measure?
I really thought that this was right, because it all seemed to fit perfectly with no leftovers. Although I guess I could've combined 5/8 and 3/8 into a 8/8...Can you explain what I did wrong based on what I told you?

comment Is the time signature switching every measure?
Thanks, the method which I used if you can call it that is that I counted out the notes. For the intro and the versy part I was able to count 12341234123412341234 at what turned out to be 360bpm, but when it went into the prechorusy part 1234 didn't fit just right so I tried 123 123 1234 1234 123 12345 123 12345 123 12345 and so on, until I got back to the chorusy part and 12341234 seemed to fit again. But this was in my head, and when I got to a computer to tab it, I split the tempo and the time signatures in half.

comment How do you play guitar dead notes quickly switching?
I just realized something. If I muted with my right hand up where the neck ends, instead of where chunky palm mutes are made at the bridge, will I get the same effect?

comment I have a song in my head, I know how it sounds, but I can't get it to translate well to DAW
I mean a bit of variation around the beat I think, causing melodies to overlap into other measures. Thanks, it's just that I've got it in my head that most pop-like music fits evenly into measures. Like that if you isolate a certain riff or melody, it would fit in measure 7 and 8, and then the chorus begins at exactly measure 9 and ends at measure...17 maybe, that kind of thing.

Thanks for the answer, but that's the thing though, I HAVE been tapping the beats out, on boxes and tables. The drum part is very subdividy of the main beat I think. But when I thought I figured out the main non-changing beat, I went to all8.com's tap the beat to find the BPM tool, and the tempo I got is what I'm using in the project, and although the beginning and end seem to match up to measures, the inner measures seem to vary slightly, is this normal? It sounds right though
