Cheers from Winnipeg, Canada! Go, Jets, go!!!
Due to a severe lack of Me Time, I probably won't get much done for FAWM 2017 until about mid-February. We shall see ...
My modus operandi: I noodle around on the guitar and come up with ideas and riffs that catch my ear, and then I cobble those ideas and riffs together into something (hopefully) slightly catchy and coherent. Sometimes I even feel compelled to add poorly written lyrics! I don't take this whole music thing very seriously. It's a nice outlet and I have fun - that's what really matters!
If you want that Texas thump, find any old beater archtop. That's what gives this Monterey its tone, more than being a tenor.
That Jim Dandy is like $150 from Amazon. Thinkin' more on that.
I hated the tone of this old Harmony. I've tried everything, heavy strings and CGDA tuning, light strings in GDAE, open G, it just sounds like whangity click thump.
But slide it, and it's 1932 Mississippi. I don't know why I ever change that.
What thinks you of that Jim Dandy? I'm pondering a cheap thunky guitar I won't mind hitting with sticks or whatnot but which I could still play without being embarrassed. (I have a Seagull S6 I revere, which is why I won't experiment on it. But cedar topped guitars. Yes, oh yes.)
Hey, thanks for your comments on my Bach effort. I've been wanting to do something a cappella for FAWM for ages but it's plenty intimidating to me too! I actually had to record the piano parts first and then shadow them with my voice before muting them - the magic of the studio! I'm glad you like it.
Hey, bud. 😊
Many thanks for taking the time to drop by and listen to my humble plank-spanking diversion!
thanks for listening to Beneficial! I think it's an absolute keeper.
Hey! It is great to hear from you! Yes, definitely, yes! I would look very, very forward to it... Take your time and, please, feel free to alter the words as you like...
Hey DS!! Thanks for your comment. I'm glad to realize you're here. It's surprising to me that my watch button wasn't set for you; fixing that now! Happy FAWM to you!!
Hey, you're back!! Nice to see you here. I'm behind on my listening as usual but looking forward to giving your first one a listen tomorrow.
I should have updated my post in the forum - updating Flash seems to have helped on both phone and desktop. Thanks for chiming in!
Hoping to hear some nice ones from you again.
Well I'm living by myself for the next few months, so all my time right now is "me" time. I hope you get some time to record!
Hey, you participating this year??
I sure hope so!!
