Artist Bio

Influences:   NewOrder, Nick Cave, Lambchop

I've been playing acoustic guitar for about 3 years. I'm messing around with alternate tuning (open C and E mostly) as well as partial capo playing.

I'm spending the month of February at a beach house on Kiawah Island SC. While it has the advantage of isolation, it has the disadvantage of proper resources; for example, I do not have access to a printer which makes lyric mods/markup frustrating. My arsenal consists of an old beat-up Yamaha and a Tascam DR-40 recorder, and 3 extra sets of D'Addario EJ16 strings.

I write this the morning of February 18th. I've just posted my 14th song. My focus now has shifted to recording the MP3 files for them. Also, I still have 3 more songs I'm still writing.

My profile states "Nov 2015" but I signed up back then to just look around. This is my first FAWM.

And, I am not the 666. But, I am 66.

    Have an early S6

    I love the cedar top. My Blueridge tenor is the only spruce topped guitar I've ever liked. Those Maritimes look blaze though, eh?

    Thanks for your idea of starting a riff with F#m- it totally worked, I was getting to stuck on the lyrics and just jamming totally unstuck my creativity. cheers

    All my posted songs so far are in "standard tuning".

    I'm going to switch now to "Open C" for a bit. I don't like re-tuning and re-tuning -- strings can wear and break (guess that's why I own 3 acoustic guitars :^)

    There is definitely an issue with showing your hairstyle off in your current pic, in that it cuts off just at the top of your forehead... so I still donโ€™t believe you yet... ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yikes! My laptop just halted and rebooted! I hate technology -- it just screws you over every chance it gets. I know because I've been in IT all my life!

    Thank you @oddbod for asking :^)

    One morning, a year or so back, I read on CNN (or somewhere) that Yoko Ono was rushed to a NYC hospital with some respritory
    or coronary problem (I'm already seeing a rhyme in there :^)

    My initial thought was: "Oh no, Yoko ONO is going to die". And then, my thought were the same as any OBIT writer for any newspaper: "write this up quick and just wait for it". Anyway, it turns out she just had the flu. But, I have a folder (as I do for all of my "works in progress") that has a label on it: Oh No Yoko's Dead.

    I hope I never have to write that song.

    Okay then I will, what about "Oh No Yoko's Dead"?

  • @iamthe666  Jan 23

    I'm bringing along a lot of little pieces to FAWM: some chord progressions I've been playing around with; a bunch of two line rhymes; reverse chords of songs I've written before; maybe just a title idea or two scratched down on the palm of my hand (ask me about my snippet titled "Oh No Yoko's Dead").
