3126 Mandachord requests fulfilled (open Fridays)

Question

How to get my glyph:

Spoiler

I'll be putting a few codes on my last Mandachord video of the day, but I have additional ways to give out codes.

  1. (PC): If you're on PC MWF around 8-12pm US time, I'm usually somewhere in the Pluto relay making tunes. Stop by and say Hi, and I'll give you a code.
    Basically, if it's in the "evening" US time and you see me post a video or respond in this thread then that means I'm at Orcus.  If you show up then you may have to be patient; I spend a lot of time looking away from my screen figuring out songs and posting stuff.  Using @Buff00n in the chat or PMing will get my attention faster.
  2. (PC and Consoles): Try the codes on my latest Mandachord video.  You can find it by going to my playlist.
  3. (PC and Consoles): If all the codes are gone, then along with the codes will be some kind of music-related question.  PM me on the forums with the answer and I'll give you a code.

Ground Rules:

  • Everybody gets one.  Rounds are on Fridays
    • If I've done a request for you then please wait two weeks before requesting another.
    • If I'm backlogged then I may not get to yours for a few rounds.
    • If you have a list then I'm only going to go through the top 3, so please try to narrow it down.
  • If you have a video link then please just embed the link itself and not the video.
    • No "extended" music links, please, just the original one time through is much easier to work with.
  • If you have a particular section of the song in mind then make sure you mention it.
  • Please don't PM me with requests.  Just leave it on the thread and I'll get to it when I can. 
  • "Can you do anything from ______?"  You're going to have to narrow it down to specific songs for me.  I don't have omniscient knowledge of all music, yet.
  • I don't take Shawzin requests here; because of the effort involved I can't guarantee a response one way or another.  Basically, leave it in a YouTube comment and if a bunch of people request/upvote something I'll see it.

TUNES

The OP was officially too big to update any more, so I have moved the song list into my comments on the first page of this thread. 

I had eight comments on the first page, so I re-purposed them and split up the song list into sections.  These links will take you to the specific comment, but they're all on the same page so you can still search for everything in one place.

 

I wrote up a basic tutorial on my process:

Thanks, DE!

Not sure if this is workable... or If I'm posting on the correct day? But the section here from 0:12 would be pretty nice.

Sorry, I don't even think I could make that work on a Shawzin.

I don't have a Shawzin request thread, for the simple fact that I currently don't have the time to give everybody one.

Hey, I'm trying to work on some of these on my own while I wait out the two weeks, and there's one in particular that I got the melody and bass off a piano transcription, but I'm having trouble picking out the drum line. Do you have any tips for that?

Can you do Regular People by Pantera?  

There's nothing in there I can do on a Mandachord, or a Shawzin for that matter.

Generally, when I'm figuring out a tricky rhythm I find that physically counting on and/or tapping my fingers on the quarter notes helps a lot.  That and tons of practice.

Snare is usually the easiest to hear and figure out.  I usually start with that.  Hi-hat is also relatively easy to hear, but it tends to have a lot of dynamic range.  I find myself just picking out the loudest hi-hat and cymbal hits and leaving the rest out.  Bass drum is usually the hardest to pick out; in a lot of music it tends to get confused with the bass line.  Sometimes listening to it on crappy speakers will help muffle either the bass line or the bass drum and bring out the other one.

Honestly, the vast majority of percussion parts I hear follow a handful of common patterns.  The one I did for 'Senkin Dur da Blá' combines a couple of these patterns with a break on the fourth measure.

Thanks, dude! I'll give it a shot
