Hope it all goes well for you, G.  Look forward to seeing you more often.  And hopefully I can get kind of caught up here, too...

Well, it took 2 days, but I got the power steering fixed, the oil changed, and all the brakes replaced on the van.  Tomorrow it's the brakes on the car.  And then all the plow truck work...  ???

Over the years many have biffed the theme . I have and I'm sure others dinged the song down because of it .

Sometimes we even admit that it doesn't fit . But that doesn't mean its a bad song by any means .

If the challenge is to write about birds and you end writing about your bike well ..... Um .... F ! Lol

My BD was just another day , I took my boy to store bought myself a cake went back home made my son sing happy birthday and told him to hand me his invisible birthday card . I read it out loud praising myself then we ate the cake .

Then I turned on the tv and watched Ancient Aliens . Bliss .

Sorry folks didn't mean to start anything . I guess it's my lack of interest in the topics . I'd like do a challenge again .

Maybe I'm some how venting my frustrations whatever stupid ones they could be .  Maybe I'm Getting old and I'm sad none of you wished me a happy birthday , slackers !  ::->

Anyway I remember getting all hyped up doing the challenges as I was learning so much . I wrote some good stuff and I was creative . It felt good .

Maybe I just got to a comfortable spot with my music and style that nothing else interests me anymore . crap that kind of sucks now that I said it. 

I don't really know what's the issue is now , and now I remember that I've repeated myself , crap my mind is going in reverse I seem to forget recent things and all of a sudden have memories from things long ago that I also forgot about ? Wtf !

I don't want the challenges to go I just would like to see them/some done in a way that draw more interest especially to any guests that stop by .

No I don't know how do that . So with that I'll shut up and pray I remember not to mention it again .

I understand Smurf , those challenges got me to where I'm ot now and I won't forget that . 😊

I'm out , I know I've been out for a while I know .
I just want everyone to know why . I'm a AH I guess I don't mean to be so resistant .

But what I think we need is a slight change in direction , my opinion only and again I don't want to upset anyone or feel about me as a out cast .

Lots of life crap which effects mood etc has had a effect .

The think we feel we lack creativity at a different level  .

We're long term members for the most part and our skills are have developed to a level to whatever you are satisfied to call it .

Even our new members are not so new at creating songs as to just needing help on the recording side if even that is wanted .

I love TTM I love the idea of challenges but I feel member wise we don't have enough to warrant these kinds of challenges .

I mean no disrespect but as I stated some time back I'm focusing on my own style boring as it is lol

The idea of a ttm tribute or love/support song I feel is great but not right for me at the moment as were the past challenge topics. They seem forced if I can say that .

Right now I think many of you are pissed at me and I'm sorry .

For me I'd be more interest in interpretive writing of more neutral concepts but I really don't the right term for that .

More like here's a set of pics what can you relate to , yes I did this in a challenge some time back .

Or just write a new song this month about whatever comes to mind no restrictions just what's on your mind .

Now if new members pop up enough then we can back up a bit at the same time we can go to basics for ourselves to remember our beginnings.

Maybe I got it all wrong  but  it's how I feel and maybe getting old sucks lol

Funny thing is when I got buzzed in the younger years I was a hell of lot more creative from external sources now it seems more inner .

I honestly don't know what that means .
So again please forgive me and my words . ☹️

Hopefully you can understand what I'm saying Ray speak is a toughy . Lol

Haha luv u Frank's .
I listened to it today and yes I heard the faults in the recording .

I actually have the Mono mic in Omni directional / 360 .
That's one of my secrets lol
At the same time there was another reason why you hear or don't hear that effect .

KC I'd like for you to try and figure out what happened as this is a good exercise for you .

Anyone else can chime in but let's let KC have the first try ok ? 😁😊 (-!)

« on: July 26, 2019, 09:58:49 PM »
Yes the sound does change from different positions but over all you know what the guitar sounds like .

When your ready to buy it's always  good to play it and also good for someone else to play it .

That give a better idea of it's tone .

But a word to the wise ! Mics will tell you the truth about your guitars tone .

What you think sounds good actually doesn't. lol
That's the learning curve of acoustics , during that you learn about all the different woods and what they bring to the table .

Basic recording is pretty straight forward . The instrument is the finicky one . Haha .

Oh when your up for a upgrade I'd like to suggest Blueridge guitars . 😁

Just listen to it again the back from walk with the dog it's about 10:04. What a tune! Tremendous!

To play with such confidence in move forward across guitar sounding so smooth and clean.


Thank you .

A lot of devotion to get to this point . Over all my years of playing the acoustic I've only played my own music . Every now and then I do play a part of a cover for demo purposes.

Thing is I'm not as good as I want to be lol
I do have issues in with my playing mostly my mind is my worst enemy lol

Hope you can find your path kc 😊
