Hello Solodallas.net Community, my name is Corey and you all probably know me for jamming with my dad but since Banane and Fil are allowing members to post topics, I decided to do one.
To start off, I’m just going to give you guys a quick summary of how my music career started.I started playing music in 6th grade about 5 years ago (I’m one of the younger members here currently 16 in 11th grade), and I started on the bass. I was young and stupid at the time and thought the bass was stupid, so I quit that and decided to learn the drums. I played the drums for about a year and in the middle of 7th grade I discovered the power of AC/DC… Watching Angus Young as a 12 year old kid blew me away. I discovered AC/DC via the Live at Donnington album and I thought it was the best music known to mankind. Know as I was saying, watching Angus gave me a HUGE desire to (more…)
A passion for gear. Now before I get into the fun facts and knowledge about my gear. I would like to say few things about how I got to the point I am at today.
My guitar and gear journey started about 7 years or so ago. Before this I had no or little knowledge of a guitar or how to play one for that matter. It was a much older friend who inspired me to play and was just fascinated when watching him play and never thought I would have ever accomplished what I have achieved as of today. Guitar was not something that came natural to me like others but that never stopped me and I was determined to succeed. (more…)

Hello to the SoloDallas.net community!
My name is Chris Morash (a.k.a musicman2242 here). This is my first post as a contributor to the site and I would like to thank Solo Dallas and banane for helping me out
Like the title suggests, I’m writing this to tell everyone about my new album “Listen To The Sound”.
So, how ’bout I get started?
Over the last year I’ve been writing and recording my original music. I never intended for it to become a “release” nor did I plan to try and make something of it. I just wanted to have my songs recorded for myself to listen to basically because I really enjoy the music I write(not intended to sound like I’m “tooting my own horn”).
After getting two songs recorded, I figured, “Hey, why not make an album?”. So I did! If I had to categorize my album I’d say it falls somewhere in the Pop/Rock category. Even though I LOVE hard rock and old school Metal like AC/DC, Rhino Bucket, Jackyl, Dio and Iron Maiden I write completely different.
So on to the nuts and bolts:
I recorded the entire thing from home using the following
Boss BR-600 Multi-Track Digital Recorder
A drum program called Acoustica Beat Craft
and finally to mix everything I used Acoustica mp3 Audio Mixer and Audacity.
Everything you hear in each song is all done by me. Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Drums, Recording, Mixing, Mastering, etc.
The goal of this is to get my music out there. These songs are the best I’ve written, I am completely confident that I can make something of this if I try hard enough and writing this article is one step (of many) that I’ve been able to take.
Sooner than later my songs are going to have my songs on various websites like iTunes & Amazon mp3 among others. I am currently selling my album at $7.00 CDN per copy in order to raise enough funds to have my songs put on the web. If anyone is interested email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
I have said it before and I know I will always say it.. I am VERY proud to be a part of the SoloDallas.net community and I am proud to be able to share with you, something that is so very much a part of me. Everything I write, I feel or have experienced at some point in my life so all of these songs are in a way very personal. Just pure emotion, weather it’s happy, sad, angry, lost, loved, etc
I hope you all take the time to check out some of my tunes and I hope you all LOVE it! Feel free to leave comments/feedback and to contact me if you would like to get a copy.

Well… It seems that there is not much stuff going on here right now. 😛
I was a bit bored today (you know… Those times when you actually have stuff to do but feel like doing useless things instead) 😀
Anyway, I found a hilarious pic on Jake’s Facebook and decided to make something with it.
I always liked these “Demotivational posters”. They are quite funny. So I made one of them with it.
Then I had some ideas and made more of them.
Well… While we wait for more news from Fil, I decided to post them, just for comedic relief. After all, they are Rock and Roll realated in a way.
Here they are:
Silly post, isn’t it? 😛
Oh well… I hope you could at least get a laugh out of this.
If you want to make your own posters, you can go here.
C’mon guys! Let’s have some fun! Make your own Solodallas.net demotivational posters and post them here! 😀
