SOUNDOFMIND'S COMMISSIONS

Commissions are currently closed for now!

Song Covers

Want to hear me sing a song you like? Well... I may or may not be able to sing it for you! Depending on the difficulty level of the song, I may deny your request, but for most cases, I will try my best. I will choose myself whether to play it on ukulele, guitar, or piano (depending on what's easiest for me mostly). Consider stylistically what you want to hear me sing by listening to some of the song samples below.

Keep in mind, I have limited resources, so the quality of my recordings (on top of my rookie experience w/music/musicality) will be questionable at best. So there are no guarantees you're getting grade A quality or anything.

Song Commissions:
Covers
>200 points
Examples:

How to Commission Me
Fill out the enspoilered form, but delete all text in parentheses. Comment it in this thread.
Code: Select all
[b]Username:[/b]
[b]Song Request:[/b] (include link to song, don't worry about lyrics and chords, I can look those up myself)

Prices are non-negotiable (unless you want to tip more, then I won't object, lol). Song may only be used for non-commercial purposes - so only for your listening pleasure. By requesting a commission you are bound (by your word and your honor I suppose) to this agreement.

You must pre-pay for the commission up front. Commissions will not be started until the points have been received.


Commissions will be completed and prioritized based on the order received. Expect at max up to 2-3 week's wait for completion once begun, depending on the complexity of the piece. There are currently three slots available for song covers.

Commission Slots
1. Coffeeism - Completed
2. Manilla - Completed
--<>--


ALL COMPLETED COMMISSIONS WILL BE POSTED IN THIS THREAD.

I reserve the right to deny any request and ask for a different one, or deny a request altogether.

If you're not sure about that song I don't mind thinking of another one just lemme know

Question

Can you be assed to figure out chords for songs that are too obscure to have easily findable chords on the internet

If not that's cool I can go back to reasonable town and think of songs that are more findable

(I will add that if you do, however, cover Under The Milky Way I will not be opposed to a kazoo solo where the bagpipes kick in in the actual song)

(but you have full artistic license)

@SirenCymbaline I don't know! It kind of really depends. I could definitely try? I don't have the best musical ear/perfect pitch and the keys I can play in well are limited, but if worse comes to worse I do have a LOT of musical friends who are much better musicians who could maybe help me out!

All that to say, I might not be able to, but I will certainly give it a shot!

Oh shoot why wasn't I notified for this?!

Aaah I'm sorry it took that long but OMG IT'S HECKIN' BRILLIANT TYSM SOUNDO <3333 I wasn't expecting you to put in that many technically detailed layers but dANG it payed off and my ears are very, very happy <333

The cover is super cool, especially at 0:47 when that base sound kicks in. The percussion is also v nice, and I adore the effect(?) you used for the kazoo solo. I really love how you made the song your own c:

Ugh. yES. This is so much more than I deserve <3 Thank you thank you thank you~

(You can bet your bottom dollar I'll be commissioning you again in the near future if the traffic dwindles)

@manilla I'm working on learning your song now! It might take a few days for me to get a smooth recording, but it'll probably be a little more stripped down that Coffee's cover. Hope that's alright with you! That just means musically there'll be less parts, because I don't really have the means to duplicate a lof the sounds/effects/loops used in the original song. So you're lookin' at more of an acoustic cover! :)
