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...  ???

Right! I've re-recorded the vocals and have changed the vinyl crackles like suggested and added a random voccal ad-lib lol

Whatcha think?


Alternative / Re: PUSH (Funky song!)
« on: August 11, 2019, 12:02:39 PM »
Thank you for the feedback!

I always have problems with the vocals tbh...I plan on re-recording them when I have a day off in the week and my noisy neighbours are out! I could just do one take and get the levels so much better!

And yes the vinyl noise was deliberate and really like that idea, will do that! ...keep the eyes peeled for a revised version 😁

Thank you again! :D I gave you my Karma for the day too! hehe funk bass is something I learnt quite soon in to it as my teacher was a fan of funk and slap bass :D one of the first songs I learnt to play on the bass (including the solo) was Stevie Wonders Sir duke...that was challenging  :D

still finding it hard getting past the first verse on songs at the mo..

that's an interesting... I've been going through my songs and find that I overwrite... get too detailed and haphazard in format.

One thing I did is take a few my favorite songs, by the grateful Dead, Paul McCartney, The Beatles, the band and write all the lyrics out in intro, verse, chorus format. Found it tremendously helpful how little writing I had to actually come up with.  Also makes me really work the lyric. Taking all that I'm writing about and condensing it down into the critical lines and ideas.

I also found this guy to be helpful as well

Good luck! I really like your music!


Cool! Thanks for your comments, Ill check that video out!  ;D

Hey everyone!

so I posted a while back that I had started some new songs and I wanted to just leave a WIP recording of it, it has vocals in now and some really nifty loops (If i do say so myself) Its starting to come together...the part where there are OOHs with the bass line will have my singing a verse on it eventually, but aside from that I'm not sure where its going lol

Here ya go!

Hey Thanks for the comments :D I am still finding it hard getting past the first verse on songs at the mo...keep having new ideas for new songs before finishing the last one lol

I was kinda going for Bad Manners/early Madness sort of style for the ska one but im kinda really stuck on that one lol and your ideas for the funky song pretty much are what im trying for haha so good call Neil :)

I've got an idea for another song too but I wanna try and finish something first lol

I will keep you all updated haha

Hey everyone! yes, I'm back briefly hehe I have been around but just not at the same time as everyone else :) I have been working on a few new songs and have a few intros ready but need to move to the next part of the songs, but I hit a wall every time lol

Anyway...Here's what I have been up to since I've been quiet :) Been using a few loops Ive found on Looperman...quite handy site that!

This one is a bit of what you're used to from me...proper 2 tone ska style...like bad manners style...

Then I have a kind of Jamiroquai inspired track, kinda bit of Stevie Wonder too...

Have done a bit more on the funky song at the moment tbh, Im going to try and write some lyrics soon for it! :D

Anyway, I will see you all around sometime :)  (-!) ~:) ::->

hey everyone!

Im looking to try and sound proof my room a bit mainly from incoming noise from the neighbours and also I'd like it if they couldnt hear my singing (bit self conscious lol)...Now It needs to be fairly cheap and easy to put up so I initially thought about using foam tiles on the wall that adjoins to their house, but I read reviews saying it doesnt really work very well, so now am unsure what to do. I dont fancy building a stud wall as I cant really loose any space, so I am open to a wall covering of some variety that will help...Does anyone have any ideas on this? Thank you in advance guys :)

Thank you Neil! It didn't used to be my cup of tea until recently :) I find it easier to make music if there isn't the pressure of writing lyrics and singing to it lol  ::->

Instrumentals / Slow Down - Another Electronic instrumental :)
« on: April 20, 2019, 07:30:51 PM »
Hey guys, so I've been working away at a new instrumental and I've got to say, it's quite therapeautic doing tracks like this...slot this here, put that ther, hey presto...sorta thing :D

Anyway, here's my newest track, called Slow Down....Its a bit more chilled electronic, not quite as trancey as the last one :)

I've also created a new soundcloud profile for my electronic work so I can use a slightly different alias, so this is a track from that page :)

Hope you're all well! :)


~Thank you everyone :)

I'm looking forward to having some motivation to get back to my reggae and ska music, but if im getting creative with this style, its better than not getting creative at all :) Plus its kinda satisfying seeing it all slot together...yep..im weird lol

Thank you! :D I think my OCD helps me create music like that because its all about structure...bringing instruments in, fading them out, defined sections...hehe
