Edmonds In-Depth Critique

  • Oct 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

**Please read the entire description before signing up to participate!**


*This workshop is limited to those who have song recordings available online of the song they'd like critiqued. This will give everyone an opportunity to listen to all songs in advance and offer more thorough feedback.


*This is a closed workshop, so do not bring guests or come “just to observe.” These songs are works-in-progress and we do not want those participating to be subjected to criticism in front of an audience of non-participators.


*Please post your song and lyric/chord chart via a song-sharing site such as Soundcloud and link back to it here in the comments.


*Songs need to be posted by a deadline as determined by the host, or you risk forfeiting your spot.


*You are expected to listen to each song and write down your critique in advance, to be shared at the event. Each song will receive approximately 30 minutes of discussion.

 

*Giving your written song critique to the respective songwriters after the discussion is immensely helpful and highly recommended.

 

*Please do not come if you are still on the Waiting List. Thank you!


Song Critique Workshops have always been popular and important events within SiS. RSVP quickly as these few slots will likely fill early - an automatic waiting list is turned on for this event.

    Everyone had thoughtful, useful comments on all songs. A successful evening, for sure!

    Great evening. Thanks for all the feedback. Hope to see you all again and maybe hear a revised version of your songs in the future. (Bill, look at google's attempt to show your house. It has Meadowdale running through the woods. :-)

    I've listened to three songs but don't see Qusim's here. Am I overlooking it?

    • Qasim

      Hi Chris ! Will send it out today, I have bn travelling.

      October 6, 2013

    • Chris K.

      I just received a note from Qasim that he will not be attending. We'll accommodate a 5th attendee as best we can at this point.

    Hi Everyone- looking forward to it! Here's my song- I apologize in advance- I have a very mild head cold but it's enough that it makes it hard to control my vocal chords in spots.

      Ann, I couldn't access your song either - make sure it is set to "public." Bill, put your lyrics in the description section, where you currently have "This is a demo with just me on guitar. I like to do it with a violin or flute."

      I did this afternoon. When did you try?

      October 4, 2013

  • Bill K.

    Thanks for hosting this, Bill.
    My song is at http://soundcloud.com/dr-bill-king/life-is-so-easy
    Looking forward to my first critique session.

    October 3, 2013

    • Ann Gates F.

      Can you post your lyrics in the description section of you song on Soundcloud? Thanks!

      October 3, 2013

    • Bill K.

      I'd be happy to. Good idea, actually, since my songs are often more complex in lyrics than in music.

      October 3, 2013

  • Ann Gates F.

    When is the posting deadline?

    Hello.
    What does "Please do not come if you are still on the Waiting List" mean? I just recently joined this group and don't know if I'm on a waiting list or not...

      This is an event with a limited number of openings for attendance due to its small group format. If you look at the right edge of this event, you will see the RSVP status and attendee list. As of this moment (12:05am Thursday 10/3) there are "4 attendees, 1 spot available" - if you were to RSVP "yes" you would fill that last spot. Someone who RSVPs "yes" when there are no spots available goes on a wait list that gets updated if someone who has a spot backs out. In the past we have had people just show up even if they're still on the wait list, which is not good for this particular type of event. Thus the additional note to please not do that. Feel free to PM me if you have further questions or go to http://songwritersins...­ for more useful info about how the group works. Thanks, CK

    Hi: here is my song for critique: http://soundcloud.com/bill-derry/
    look-to-me-prelim
    If you sign-up, please post your song by Friday, October 4th. If it is not posted by Friday night I will invite someone else to take your spot. This is to allow all of us time to review and write comments on each song before we meet Tuesday night. Thanks.
