Still shoveling, Ag.  These last 3 weeks have been the worst of the winter, with a dozen other problems tossed in.  I could whine about it for hours...  :P

I've been so preoccupied with everything going wrong around here for the last week I hadn't even noticed, RJ.  I bet White caught it...

oops, I was just reading the text message that I copied into my previous 'shout' and realized my buddy used some colorful language.   :o  

I see someone already corrected it for me.  Sorry!!  :-[

I've been working on how to improvise and just found this playlist with a metric crap-ton of guitar backing tracks. Thought I'd share.

Hey Hey, power back (for now).  But still snowing and blowing.

Wonder if Canada is getting any of this, or is it just our little treat?  :P

Well, heavy snow and 50mph winds with gusting.  Lost power about 6-7 hours ago.  Waited till it was 45 in the house to see if it would come back on before going out and starting the generator.  Hope it comes back on sometime tonight...

I’m making good progress. Got too many tracks but I do have someone on board who I hope that whip it into shape.

As for 3-4 mins restriction, I won’t really know, until the song is finished, as to its length. I guess if it runs over time we can always do a radio edit version. No problem.

I'm making progress too but haven't recorded anything yet. Lots of business travel means I'm only working on lyrics and ideas. We'll see if I get anything when I get home...

I have mine mostly finished now. I need to lay down some bass and finish up the lead guitar part. The drums, vocals, and rhythm are all recorded now.

I got to work quite a bit on my song this weekend.  To be honest, I think it's a interesting idea but a terrible song.  :D  I'm trying to grow as a musician so this song is different that what I normally write.  Believe it or not, it has NO ACOUSTIC GUITAR!!!

I'm trying to learn how to play electric guitar 'leads' and improvise.  I recorded the talking track, the singing track, a simple drum track and a rhythm track.  Then I just played it over and over and over trying to come up some lead guitar parts.  I don't like it yet but I happy with my progress and am learning a lot.  In any event, it's been a lot of fun.

I'm sure it'll be great RJ, as always! As long as you have fun and learn a little, I that's all that matters. I'm looking forward to hearing what you came up with.

My song is pretty long. There's no way I could realistically cut it down. But then, these talking songs often are long. Red Sovine's songs are often 5 minutes long (including Teddy Bear). So, I think it's par for the course. Talking is slower than singing in most instances, even though my song has an upbeat tempo.

Okay, mine is up.  I'd love to edit this some more, but honestly I'm kind of fatigued with it.  It was a lot of fun., but also quite a lot of work.  This is my first attempt at adding some midi sounds (wind-esque sounds).  I'm generally happy, but the vocals could use a re-do.  I'll post up the words soon.
