Hi, I'm new to this forum although I have been a member for a while now- just not had chance to come on here since I joined. As my first post hello to all! :-) I'm posting three original tracks. I…Continue
"A thread started by a new member looking for advice is now, in addition to thankfully expunged claims of plagiarism, subject to this irrelevant nonsense. It perhaps puts my labelling of some members as stupid cunts into perspective."
I would also change the rhythm of the tune along with its shape (contour). The difference between B minor and D major in this instance is just technical semantics as the difference between a bm7th or a D major chord is not enough to get you…"
"Tbf, whilst I hear it in the verses, it took Nikola to point it out and I find it a slim similarity. As I said, the big hook of Crawford's is the chorus where the progression changes completely, and I don't hear that in your piece.Music…"
"Bob, that's a long time...haven't you had enough yet? :-D Yes, I think it's a good approach to learn all the rules and then tear the rule book up!...or rather than anything so drastic, break one here and there or invent new…"

"Thanks for the words of advice Mike, yes the key was originally in Bm actually- it works better in that key as more sonorous but the singer's vocal range created problems. Having listened to it again and actually sat down and compared it I do…"
I'm not going to speak from a legal standpoint because I'm not qualified to do so.
However I can do it from a musical point of view and have to say that the first 4 bars from about 1' 15" in are exactly like One day. The…"
"It doesn't really come up tbh - this debacle is the first time I've seen one member point the plagiarism finger at another - but Mike Hewer is probably a good man to ask (if he doesn't mind!), what with his industry experience and…"
"I did actually state some similarities myself, just nowhere near enough to justify accusations of plagiarism, and of course you've ignored that. I can find you the quote if you like.Now, let's examine the situation in a wider context. A…"
