Folk / New Irish song for St. Pat's Day!
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:21:48 PM »

This needs some better mixing. Will post again later.

Rock / New original: I Can Only Dream About Her
« on: February 21, 2019, 03:41:03 AM »
This is a song that I collaborated with a lady from Ireland. She sent me a poem and asked me to make a song out of it. I was able to use most of her versus but added some of my own and also the chorus is mine and the melody.  Anyway, let me know your thoughts and recommendations.



General Recording Dicussions / Recording videos?
« on: September 05, 2018, 04:45:18 AM »
I've watched a few videos, but if you guys have any advice, please let me know.

I'm interested in creating music videos for some of my songs. I have a couple of good video cameras and pretty good video editing software. I gather that USUALLY the song is recorded first, then the video is shot, with lip syncing, etc.

Thoughts on how to best accomplish this from scratch?

Country / A Song for Mom (re-recorded and remixed)
« on: September 03, 2018, 09:29:28 PM »

This is a redo of a song I wrote last year.  I was never happy with the way the original came out.

Let me know what you think.


I haven't been on this site for very long and I'm sure this topic has been covered numerous times, so my apologies to the folks who have been here longer. My daughter and I just visited Graceland in Memphis and got an overdose of Elvis.  Along the way, we stopped in Tupelo, MS to learn more about Elvis and some of the early delta blues players.  This revived my love of the 1950s. I was born in 1969, so I missed the 50s by over a decade, but I still love the music and used to sit and listen to old 45s and 33s of the 1950s that my mom and dad owned.

In 1945, the Big War was over. The Baby Boom is just beginning and there is much optimism around the world. The 1950s would usher in a decade of wholesome family values, political stability, and great music.  Most of the great music we hear today had its roots in the 1950s and some of the greatest guitars were invented in the 50s, from the Tele and Strat to the LP and the Jazzmaster. Chuck Berry and Elvis would usher in a new era with the birth of Rock and Roll.  From Doo-Wop to Rock and Roll, some great musicians could be heard in the 1950s.  In country music, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, among others were iconic figures of this period.  Bluegrass music had Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass boys, featuring Flatt and Scruggs, and there were so many others.  Jazz and Blues were also big during this time, with Ray Charles and Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Lead Belly, Buddy Rich and so many more.

For this month, we are transporting back in time to the 1950s. Imagine you have just sat down in your new 1955 Chevy Bel Air to listen to some music on the AM or FM station with Alan Freed or perhaps you've just sat down with the family for the Grand Old Opry or American Bandstand.

The task: write a song that would fit into the music of the 1950s.  It can be any genre that was alive from 1950 through 1959. Instrumentals are also fine.

Okay, so again, we need music that would fit easily into the 1950s. If I turned on a radio in the 1950s, your song should fit right in.

This is due August 30, 2018 by midnight wherever you are.

Have fun!


General Discussion / Where are the Two Track members from?
« on: May 13, 2018, 05:27:12 PM »
The baseball discussion got me to wondering, where are our two track members from?

I'm from South Carolina, but I've been in Texas for 20 years now.

General Recording Dicussions / Copyright infringement?
« on: May 10, 2018, 01:08:51 AM »
Would it be considered copyright infringement to use a saying from a TV show as a song name? Specifically, a saying that was used a lot and kind of a signature of a show?

Guitars / Watch out! The BoneDigger has a HOT new guitar
« on: April 29, 2018, 12:04:55 AM »
I recently sold most of my electrics with the intent of staying mostly accoustic.i've had a hard time finding the RIGHT electric guitar for me. 

My problem is that I want the twang, but I also want smooth-echoing-jazzy-reverby sounds. So, I jumped from single coil to humbuckers, then back and forth. Today I played a new Squire J Mascis Jazzmaster and it knocked my shoes off. The bridge gives me very nice twang (very surf like) and the neck gives me very smooth jazzy tones when I roll back the tone. It's almost like a cross between a tele and an LP. I fell in love instantly, and with a GC $100 off sale, it had to come home with me.

This thing really has a vibe that I never got with my teles, strats, hollow bodies, and LP-like guitars. So far, I'm really just enjoying the heck out of it!

Not sure how to post a picture here, but I'll try to figure it out.

Studio One / Two questions...
« on: April 06, 2018, 05:21:01 PM »
In Mixcraft, if I want to extend a track (like a drum track), I can just grab the end of it and drag it out to the proper length. Same if I want to cut the track shorter. I've found the "duplicate" function, but it then makes a long series of duplicates to get the right length and it takes forever. Is there a way to just extend the track?

Also, if I want to add space at the beginning of a track, I can just click and hold the track and drag it to where I want it to be. I haven't found a way to do this in Studio One. Ideas?

Guitars / NTGD!
« on: April 04, 2018, 07:39:28 PM »
I just received my new Blueridge BR40TCE tenor guitar. I'm tuning it DGBD like the banjo. What a lot of fun this thing is!!!

General Discussion / Concept overload!
« on: March 29, 2018, 01:23:52 AM »
My mind is in overload right now. I'm seeing and thinking of song ideas and concepts literally EVERYWHERE! I can't seem to focus on just one and get it done. It's a bit frustrating! It would be a good problem to have if I could focus on one at a time.

Studio One / New to Studio One...
« on: March 28, 2018, 05:01:38 PM »
I've been having stability issues with Mixcraft so I picked up Presonus Studio One, 3.5 this week. I'm still trying to learn my way around it while I'm attempting to download all.of the VSTs. Any tips or great intro videos?

General Discussion / My transformation is complete!
« on: March 10, 2018, 03:05:49 PM »
I've sold off all of my electric guitars, electric basses, and amps. I'm down to only accoustic instruments now, with the exception of my midi keyboard and Maschine controller. Most of my instruments are American made now, though some are not. Martin guitars, Guild guitars, small luthier made banjos, Collings and Big Muddy mandolins, Tacoma bass. Even some hand drums from Africa and Ireland, and a dulcimer too! I simply love acoustic music! I like listening to a great electric guitar player too though. I just don't care to play electric anymore.

My biggest influences have been mostly bluegrass players, though I also like James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, and others of that type of folksy music. Norman Blake and Tony Rice, Doc Watson... Huge fan of that type of music. Recently I've been really enjoying Gerry O'connor and his Irish tenor banjo playing. I'd love to play like this...
