  1. It was put on the internet as a video and it was saved (and probably deleted) on a computer that has probably become obsolete to time. I no longer have the computer. I estimate this was a decade old or close to a decade old. I am not aware of any accounts I had that still exist that house these early attempts at writing FL Studio pieces. The description I can give, however, is this: it was a fast paced piece, 160 BPM, with lots of double bass pedal, snare, and no hi-hat! There was a crash cymbal. There were a lot of stock FL Studio synthesizer/ambient washes, a stock "metal chord" kind of sound used to play a sort of "galloping" stutter-metal riff. The complaints that people above gave were very valid: I knew nothing of musical scales yet so the "chords" were huge blasts of probably chromatically adjacent notes on a sample that already played what was probably a power chord. There was also a bass, but it was a "BOO_BASS" sample, so it was a re-triggering sample that, as far as I know, allowed for no muting of notes, so it rung out while the guitar stopped. There was no reverb that I remember on it, nothing to make it sound any better. On an earlier version, I did add a guitar solo in the middle, on one of the stock sample packs.... it was short and kind of had a "pop-punk" style to it, in that it was supposed to sound obviously pre-written. It could have been worse from my memory, but it was still written in no key at all, and there were some awkward fowl-ups in rhythm at one point.
  2. I really just made this new account to clarify that I was a kid at the time who had absolutely no knowledge of how to read, write, or play music... other than the drum set. That would be why the drums were the only thing that was doing sort of what they were supposed to be doing. I had become a music enthusiast and wanted to make it. This was right at the beginning of my attempts... quickly I was overwhelmed by exactly how much went into writing songs. It honestly is good I had no idea how to write what kind of garbage I was thinking up at the time. This was just one example- inspired by stoners and video games. Two dregs of societal influence, for the most part. I did stick honestly to my music enthusiasm all the way up to today however, and do compose infinitely better, if not stellar still, music:
