More Than Just The Lyrics

I'm not a fan of K-Pop, and I can't even understand a single Korean word. But the second verse, chorus and the musical arrangement of this song is so nice that I couldn't help but rape the repeat button.

Vispop 3.0 Finalist

Last February 1 I attended the screening of Vispop 3.0.  Not as a judge though, but like the previous years I was there to support my friends who organized this songwriting competition.
Vispop 3.0
I only had two hours of sleep but still decided to be on the screening since I wanted to hear this year's entries.

I'm not a songwriter but listening to some of the entries maka ingon g'yud ka nga luoy kaayo pagkasuwat kantaha.  Usahay makapangutana sab ka kung asa paingon ang istorya, unsay buot pasabot sa songwriter, o kung binuang ba o serious ang kanta.

Anyhoo!

After 206 entries, 4 judges, and a grueling 10+ hours of screening each and every song.

Hard Not Hard

Last month I had the opportunity to be playing again for the second installment of Visayan Pop Songwriting Campaign.  I was honored to be chosen by no other than Jude Gitamondoc to be part of the band.

Given the said task was not easy.  I had to deal with new members of the band, and I’m not a people person.  I rather sit on the corner and read stranger’s posts on social media sites.  Aside from that the Vispop 2.0 songs were, honestly, very hard to play that I had to spend a lot of time figuring out the bass lines of each song.  Not to mention that the songs are of various genre.

There were two songs that I really find it hard to play without messing up the notes.

Anyhow, check the two videos below and you be the judge if we or I did well during the vispop finals night.

Sinugbang Sugbo

Di gayud malalis nga daghan kaayo og mga bisdak nga nagkatag sa tibuok pinas.  Sama ngadto sa Manila nga daghan kaayo ang mga bisdak nga nanrabaho o namalhin og puyo ngadto.  Aduna gani to usa ka higayon nga nagsakay mi og taxi paingon sa luneta unya ang amo diay’ng nasakyan nga drayber kay usa man diay ka bisdak.  Kani laging bisdak ‘ta gahi kaayo mu-istorya og tagalog (apan maayo daw mag iningles?) dali kaayo masakpan nga dili bansay sa mao nga lingwahe.

 

Yuna pa!  Basi og nagtuo na mu nga mag story telling nako nganhi o basi og nagtuo mu nga akong gi-kompara ang mga tagalog ug bisaya.

 

Sa tinuod kay wala sa duha.

 

Naningkamot lang intawn ko og suwat og maayo nga intro kay basin pa diay og ma engganyo mu.

 

Balik ta…

Kaning mao nga sinulat bahin kini sa usa ka tao nga nakapaukay sa mga bisdak.  Di lang sa pinas kung di sa ubang nasud nga anaay mga bisdak nga nanimpad intawn aron makapalit og usa ka tasang Starbucks coffee ni dodong ug inday.  Ang mao nga tao nagdala sa twitter handle nga Sinugbang Sugbo.

 

Nahimugso ang mao nga account niadtong Sat, May 21, 17:48:53, +0000 2011.

Ug ang iyang first tweet:
