Influences: Alternative, indie, punk.
I’ve been playing drums for a few years and take lessons. I can play some other instruments at beginner level. I don’t think about songwriting much except during FAWM and 50/90. I’m more focused on learning than I am with getting songs done, so it is often slow going (but fun).
I usually collaborate with some others in the 4-track cassette challenge (https://fawm.org/forums/topic/9813). All songs are posted on @fourtracktape’s page.
Thanks for the feedback! : )
Just FYI My song Into the Bay was based on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I travel it occasionally to visit family. Inspired by both the bridge and the tune Over the River . . ." I have this as a spoken word tune over chords in the key of C with a walk-up at the end of each verse to keep it "light"
Hey there... thank you for listening to my experiment! I found that the key to make it work was keeping the tracks VERY simple. three of them were single notes the entire time that made a chord. Another was two notes together that made a different chord with 2/3 of the first ones, so I could rotate between two chords or just use partial chords. Then there was the chime and piano tracks which worked with either chord. So I didn't have that many options. The first set of tracks were busy and didn't work together easily. I want to try a few more times with these tracks. There are obviously lots of ways to go... (and I forgot to use the speed dial to wobble or change to tuning. I REALLY want to do that.
Hey, friend. Thanks for checking out "Earth's Bucket List." It's sad trying to sound jolly about something that's really so sad.
If my bathroom were a little bigger, I would totally record a solo dance party in there. 😀
Thanks very much for the slew of positive comments ... appreciated greatly!
Hey there! Tape 13 is headed your way. Seems like we do this each year, so I’m pretty sure that our 4 track song will be good again. Let me know if you have any questions. I played a drum track on 1. 🤘
I can’t wait to make some music with you!
I look forward to hearing your songs, too. good luck with your board game challenge!
Have fun! By getting songs done you also learn a lot 😀
Hope to hear your songs soon.
