View Full Version : Bring Your Daughter...

We had an awesome moment in band practice the other day. I pulled out the first guitar I ever bought, a cheap Squier electric that came as part of a $200 pack (you know, everything a beginner needs: amp, cables, etc.) - the strings hadn't even been changed on the poor thing in two years. I just started playing some old stuff I haven't touched in an equal amount of years. Back when I got the guitar, I primarly taught myself how to play from Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden songs. So I just started jamming - what I can still remember - from some songs. Of course our whole band is familiar with Maiden's catalog, but we only have one Maiden song that is a fully polished show-ready cover ("The Wicker Man".)

Anyways, I started playing "Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter" - a song which I think is a lot of fun to play. Well, nobody else really knows how specifically to play it, but our vocalist has a huge stack of lyrics floating around, so he quickly grabbed the lyrics, and we just started charging into the song head first.

We do a lot of random jams like this, but none turned out quite as awesome as this one did. I was able to remember the majority of the song, and had a lot of fun with it (tons of whammy, pick scrapes, etc.) and the vocalist really got into it to. We even threw a really cool ending on it. It ended up sounding so good, we're gonna start practicing and polishing it for inclusion in the set now. Not so much as a serious song, but more a fun/jammy type song. (It's just too weird/stupid to take seriously.)

Just thought you all should know ;)

Living Martyr had done stuff like that with This is the War (Vader), A Touch of Blessing, The Prisoner, Run to the Hills, Holy Diver, and a few others..

Oh...and I actually talked to our new singer for the first time today.

Yeah, jams are a hell of a lot of fun.

Out of those we jam "Holy Diver" and "Run to the Hills" from time to time. Holy Diver is somewhat of a theme song since it's the ringtone on my phone and always has been. Not to mention our drummer always makes the mistake of saying something like "I'm going to ride the hi-hat on this next time." At which point someone starts playing the riff and goes "Ride the hi-hat, you can see its stripes..." etc. :eyes:

You guys got a vocalist? Sweet :)

That was all on Myspace...I had actually never met him before today...haha

both Brad and I listen to it, but I have the shittiest double bass pedal in the world.I told my grandpa that he shouldnt have bought it, as advised by my drum instructor after he tried to make it work better, but my grandpa has some crazy Zionist conspiracy theory that he only said that to make money for the store.

Interesting. Since I can't do death metal, my material usually pushes us into more proggy waters. Our drummer gets into arguments with me almost every time we play my songs because most of them have weird transitions (or none in the case of one song, just 180's basically) and time signatures and QRish backing stuff (for strings, other parts, sound effects, etc.) Basically it just takes a little more work to learn the parts and get in sync with the instruments and backing, but the end result is usually worth the hassle. Damn drummers...

Three weeks!? You lazy fucks ;) We have a 9-hour practice once a week (Sunday = band day), and random practices or workshops during the week (depends on people's schedules.)

Oh, the irony. :D

I would just like to say that I think Bring Your Daughter To the Slaughter is a great (but not awesome) song. Straightforward rock with lyrics based loosely on "To Coy His Mistress." And the solo is living proof that Janick, in the right headspace can whip out an excellent solo (at least I think that's Janick).

On a completely unrelated note, I was listening to Out Of The Silent Planet earlier today, and I was reaffirmed how fucking great of a song that is. Some truly great riffs that not to many people tend to notice.

well...someone cant drive you (Brad and our singer) so.....

And our practice site is limited because I have to move my drum set.

I am hoping to have one on Sunday...if brad is available.??????

Yeah, I agree about BYDTTS. Plus I just really find it to be a fun song to play. It's not very hard, but it sounds cool, and most songs don't give me much of a reason to just totally go crazy with the whammy bar or pick scrapes, but this song does. I love it. I like Janick's solo a lot. I've never really tried to play it, so I was just pulling stuff out of my ass. To keep set times down we might not have the actual solo in it... just the slower lead part with the chanting stuff and the lead after it + plus the ending solo stuff. I don't know, I guess we'll see...

Yeah, OOTSP is a decent song, but I find it a bit repetitive at times.

I don't want to change Living Martyr, I just want to start a separate non-metal project somewhere in my future.

Ah, reminds me of the good ol days in the summer of 2005 when my band was recording our demo CD... we did it ourselves on our own time... so every week, to warm-up, we would play like a 20-minute version of Transylvania.

The whole song went as written until it picked up, after the second solo, we basically just kept returning to that main harmony and chord structure, and then started trading solos back and forth and back and forth, improvised some harmonies, did a little drum solo... it was a lot of fun.

Damn, you'd think that song would get boring after 15 minutes.

Meh, not if you fuck with it enough.

Basically, it was a way for myself and our other guitarist to show off every little soloing trick we knew. Haha.

Fuck yeah, it's so fun to do stuff like that. Transylvania pops up every once and a while in our practices too. Especially when we have two guitars goin'.
