Eight colors
« on: July 28, 2013, 09:02:28 AM »
I pulled out me crayolas and drew up a few pieces over the past few weeks. Still early stages... like many others may never finish but I like em.
Each in various stages of completion but most of the music is done. There are some performance issues mostly on the lead tracks... but listenable anyways.
And only one acoustic song.  :o
If you have any advice thoughts criticism etc... keep it to yourselves!  :P :P :P :-*

Cool I like them all  :D but the acoustic is the best one but not because I lean that way,but because it has a more refined feel to it melody and rhythm flow just right . Nice work

TY Ags... after a re-listen lots of work to be done.
I like the Acoustic tune as well it is closest to complete right now.

I'm still experimenting with the rhythm of the first one. I've started it last weekend and seemed to come quickly but I've redone the rhythm gits so many times and I can't seem to get em quite right...

So what are you working on these days besides the pool walls?  :-\

I have been in a slump a big one mentally and physically. I would like some me time maybe some man against nature with guitar LOL camping is in order though never done it since I been married so not sure what the other half would say about that LOL


I listened to Spoorks I mean schprocks vocal post the radio head one and some how it lifted me a bit so I have stuff on back order so to say but not feeling it so it be stupid to try and fulfill.


With that said I came up with a very mellow piece a while back and made some inquiries and had an offer so I'll start this week on that and hope it all works out   I'll be using two ttm'r's and maybe a 3rd  the 3rd has not been asked yet and if number 3 reads this .... yes it is you so you might as well chat with me LOL hahaha ..... and pool is nice just landscaping work and shoveling to do now . :)

No slumps Ags... I think it's too easy to fall away from playing. I've done it plenty of times. If you're not careful it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. I mean it. No such thing as a slump. Pick up your guitar and play just like yesterday! :P I think you have to sort of punch your way through it... but that means guitar in hand.... every day. I know not everything I play is good .. so! :P
I just feel I have to keep doing it. It has to be a constant part of you. Anyway... that's how I see it. Time is ticking away and you can't get it back.
 

Thanks for listening there Frankie...

Spent some time on this one over the weekend and the past few days... redid the kick (it has a better groove about it now imo), I played and recorded a real high-hat also sounds better imo, added the first verse and chorus and added a little tambourine at the second solo bit.
Hope to get it done by the weekend. But I know better....  ::)

I was fortunate enough to get some interest on this song from Schprocket...  :D
I wanted a second voice on it to hit notes I just couldn't reach without sounding like a cat getting his tail stepped on.
So he stepped in it errr stepped in and gave me some tracks to work with. And some really valuable input.
I'm not use to having so many vocals track to work with or mix so it was a real B'tch but I think I got it now.
Oh and the wife helped me out on a few as well.
Thanks dear and Carrie.  :P

So give a listen give your thoughts and we'll leave a light on for you!  :o

What I liked about Be Yourself when I first heard it was that, to my limited musical vocabulary, it had the lyrical feel of John Lennon on a good day, combined with a McCartneyesque Americana style: a cross between "I've Just Seen A Face" and - believe it or not - "Mull of Kintyre".

The only difference is not only does everyone wants to sing along but get up and dance as well.... I even got as far as imagining the music video for this one. :) LOL!

Hey... it was a fun song... I like it and Schprock likes it! It don't need no dancing pairs with flying underwears and such!  ???  :o  :P

You want a dance song I've got a new tune... you can dance all you want to this! It's just a skeleton but you can shake your maker to it! Very rough cut...
Steve I've got some spots for you on this. I'll let you know once I get a decent recording done.

This song is turning out to be more work than I thought it'd be...  :-\  but it's coming along. Should have it ready over the weekend Schprock. Simple little rock-n-roll song he says to himself... simple my arse. I actually had to learn this frickin thing and come up with a decent bass line.  ???
Here's a new mix with all parts in place I think... well as of today. Not bad for the time into it though still has some performance issues but I'll get em done.
R&R... wtf?

That's a really fun tune, Jahva. Love it.  ;D

It reminded me of something Danny Gatton might play. Which, of course, is no bad thing!!  ;)

Now, ya just gotta drop some harmonics, multiple string bends and crazy/impossible licks in there and ya cracked it!  :o
