Martin Quibell 5


Newark-on-Trent UK   Jan 2013  

Artist Bio

Influences:   All sorts, from classic to hard rock, via pop, punk, soul, reggae, ska, electronica, and almost everything.

Profile updated (at last)

I have a vast array of musical instruments - acoustic guitars, classical guitar, electric guitars, travel acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, electric 4 and 5-string basses, soprano ukulele, baritone ukulele, tenor ukulele, mandolins, tambura, sarod, electric harmonium, pianorgan, electronic keyboard, bongos, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers (including FAWM ones), cowbell, triangle, xylophone, marimba, castanets, guiro, zither, didgeridoo, stylophone, melodica, harmonicas (lots of them, both chromatic and non-chromatic), tin whistles, soprano recorders, bass recorder, magic flute, Chinese Bamboo Flute, and more that I can't remember!


My internet usage is limited to whatever my mobile phone provider allows, and the odd wifi hotspot.

Unfortunately, my digital 12-track recorder still needs a replacement hard drive.

    Hi ! Thank you for your comment on C O R N E R!
    It made me wanna give it a try on a demo recording - and not alter the lyrics first. Thanx again.

    Hiya Martin! Nice to see you're getting some songs up! I am due at a dinner date in just a moment, but I'll swing back by later on. Thank you so much for the comment on my lyric for the 'intricate tree' prompt. Sometimes it's fun to just write the words that come fluidly and leave it at that.

    I'm sure what you recorded on the cassette was fabulous. Can't wait to hear it!

  • @dreamscuba  1 week

    Thanks Martin...The Gretsch can be heard on 'Split The Seal' and 'X Marks The Spot'...I just took it in to get a setup and some fret work, so may not have it back before the end of FAWM...But I have one track in progress that features it...Looking forward to listening to your songs.

    Good luck Martin with FAWM. I have a new guitar - I swapped a guitar for a Gretsch a few days ago, so hopefully that will make an appearance in FAWM.
