[–] PuttItOut 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

Wow, that was rich. Really appreciate you sharing. Thanks.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

Goddammit Santa, this sounds so good, it should be on the radio. Maybe I need to get into country playing, that's where the deep voices really seem to shine.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

That was excellent. Man that song could be written about me. I dont know for sure, but I'm thinking you wrote that about you. I can relate to everything you're saying in that one. You're voice sounds so freaking great for that kind of music. I think people would line up to pay to listen to you sing your songs. I'm happy you found us all here and share your music with us! Great work!

Nice work. Makes me think of 1970's 18 wheelers. :D

Actually not my favorite genre, but the vibrato was remarkable. I work my ass off to achieve that skill and am nowhere near that ability. Nicely done.

[–] xobodox 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago  (edited ago)

I had the luxury of some good influences to choose from - Lynch, DeMartini, EVH, Lee, Campbell, Rhodes, Downing, Murry, Smith, Gers, . . . All had tons of style to go with their tech skills.

Nuno, Petruuci, etc have picked up the cross; but after this generation, I'm not sure who's going to keep the fire burning.

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Ooooh yeah! Nice! Sweet rolling rhythm indeed... :) nice, who is playing what?

[–] xobodox 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

  • 2 tracks of MIDI drums
  • 1 track MIDI bass
  • 3 tracks guitar (2 rhythm, 1 lead)
  • 2 tracks for the vocals
  • 2 bus tracks - 1 for guitar, 1 for vocals
  • 2 fx sends - 1 for chorus/reverb(room), 1 for reverb/delay(tape)

so, me just goofin' around.

[–] theysayso 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Ha! Very crunchie. I like!

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Is that you on the drums also?

[–] xobodox 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

MIDI.. via Push (Ableton).. I usually run a basic "click" type track and then punch in some accents on another track.. Kinda makes it feel more realistic.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

@theBuddha is playing a gig tonight and asked me to step in and host the festivities tonight.

He also sent me this to pass along to all of you:

I am not here. I am just getting to a bar that calls itself a blues club. It's a bit of a hipster joint.

To get in the mood for some blues, I did a little improv picking. At least I'm pretty sure it's not some song I've just forgotten the title to. I didn't really think it through that much. I've got stuff to do!


Rock on, goats! Rock on!

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

That tunes a trip, I mean it's blues, but you can tell it's played by a Classically trained guitarist, a couple of those chord voicings(major chords maybe) almost made me feel like a little vivaldiesque interlude was going to pop up. I loved it though nice interesting track with a smooth vibe.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

He plays so fucking good

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thank you for the kind words. I try to hold myself to high standards. I can't always count on other people to hold me to those standards, so I have to do it myself.

[–] YoHomie 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

That recording really reminded me of a Keb' Mo' concert I went to a couple years ago. That was some serious entertainment. I'd put TheBuddha and Keb' Mo' on the same stage any day.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

He's so great. I'm about to share a different song of his be sure to check it out.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Thanks. One of my favorite genres to play is the blues. It's also one of the genres where I get to play around and improv.

I get to hold that note just a moment longer, or play an entirely different note. I get to pick that tone and apply it so that it sends the message I want it to send. I get to decide how much bend I want to place there.

It's very freeing when I'm used to making, or obligated to make, faithful reproductions.

I've sat a whole lot of blues sessions.

[–] Jfkthrowaway1 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

This is so fucking rad

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I am glad you enjoyed it! I love me some blues playing.

I was sorta going for Delta blues, but lacked a rhythm guitarist so I had to try to improv both at the same time. It's a little complicated but you get used to counting different counts at the same time. Your fingers will adjust to the syncopation. It gets easier the more you do it.

[–] theHubrisOfMan 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

This made me tear up and I felt stupid but then I read the comments and everyone was saying how remarkable of a player @theBuddha is so now I don't feel so crazy. Touched my soul.

[–] Timmy2 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

@TheBuddha puts his heart and soul into his playing. I love it.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

That's why I love the blues, and music in general.

For an altogether brief few hours, I get to make people emote. They laugh, dance, sing along, cry, and then go off to have sex with one another! It's pretty much the best day ever.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

There's no need to feel stupid. music is the language of emotions. Its way of sharing feelings without needing a single word, by sharing the actual feeling through music instead

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Happy Friday Everybody! I'll go ahead and get this party started. This is a song I wrote a while back and just finally got around to getting it all together the way I wanted it to be. Some of you may have heard this before as I shared it sometime in the past before I put the lyrics on it and the lead guitar. This is the song I would open all of my concerts with if I ever get a band together and start playing my songs for the people out there listening to live music. I just think it would really set the tone for the show and start it all off with a lot of energy and grab their attention that I'm not giving back till the show is over. I just love how it turned out. It sounds like a party to me. That's what it's supposed to be, the start of a party, which is why I called it Party Time!

Also, I should ping @puttitout, to see if he'd like to work his magic again this week.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Haha I love this, such a fun song. The first like 2 seconds reminded me of black sabbath for some reason I think it's the guitars tone, but then it went off in a way different direction

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I love Black Sabbath so hey! Its all goood!

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That will certainly get them rocking. One helluva bitchin solo.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Hell yeah! I want to get them rocking! Thanks cof!

[–] an_angrier_dave 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I just re-watched Repo Man the other day. This would fit right into that sound track. Reminds me of Black Flag. Sucks that Rollins went full retard the last few years, though.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Thanks. Yeah Henry is nuts

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

It has a very punk vibe to it. I like it.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I didnt set out to make a punk rock song. Just wanted a high energy rock and roll song.

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

I've played this song for a year and still can't get it. Guy on YT named Jorge Nolla plays it and sells his tabs. I bought it like a year ago.

I can't believe how people make playing a song look so easy but it's so hard to play.

Amanda McBroom wrote it. Bette Midler sang it. Man I wish I could play it better. I'll keep trying. Today I gave it 16 tries and finally said fuck it. Also got a Audio Interface and messed around with loops. Couldn't help myself and threw in a loop.

The Rose

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That's really nice. Good tone. You're a much harsher critic of yourself than you need to be. You sound fine, keep motivated, and keep practising. If you keep these recordings around, you can go back a few months later and hear how much you've improved.

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thanks. You're the go-to music guy. Course it's easy to dig music when you grew up in the boomer era. Great music that lasts forever.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

sings along

"Some say love..."

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I love this song my mother sang it and I can play it on the harmonica and piano. I love your rendition of it! It sounds rather difficult but you do it wonderfully! Oh thank you Sir so much for sharing this, it’s filled with memories! I could sing to this... maybe I will try sing to it if you don’t mind...

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I thought your voice could fit with this song. Yeah sing it. Accompany me if you want. Curious to hear what comes out.

I heard girls sing it at Scaryoke over and over and I got hooked on it.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Sounded pretty damn good. I can hear how that would be a hard one to play, the different strings sometimes played together sometimes not. I think it comes down to muscle memory, the more you do it the easier it gets

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I don't have any nails so I have to pick with my flesh and the back of the nails hit the string next to it sometimes. I can't stand it when my nails start getting long, I wind up messing with them till they rip off.

[–] indy0704 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Just a lurker getting a smile from the goodwill you have built here. My best to all of you.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Thanks, enjoy the music. There are some extremely talented goats in here tonight sharing their talents

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Thanks for checkin in buddy, Lurkers are just as welcome as players here. This weeks got some good tunes too. Cheers.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

The thread is for musicians, lurkers, and folks interested in music or that have questions.

In other words, this thread is also for you.

Do you play?

[–] indy0704 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Used to. Still love music though. Saw Kansas last week (had to be talked into it but glad I went).


Going to see Adrian Belew this week.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Here is a song sung and played by a good friend of mine Christopher.We were going to play it together but never got the time, so he sent me this. its a Grateful Dead song dire wolf

[–] PuttItOut 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Since you asked so nicely and so many times.. You may live.

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

Thanks for everything Putt!

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

This sounds so sweet, nice voice on your buddy, smooth vibe.

[–] nigger_plz 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

This is a great song. I never heard it. Well done.

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Very nice Chris, such an easy listening voice!

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Made it nice and early this time around, Here's a fun one for you guys. https://instaud.io/3oHd

I went LOW, like real low, tunes my guitar all the way down to B standard for this one, it's more in my comfort range for singing, still getting over being sick so my voice still isn't the best it could be.

I spent all week trying to learn multi-track recording and I'm getting there but still doesn't feel as good as I can do in a one shot bang though. Eventually I would like to have a complete song with separate guitar bass and vocal tracks maybe even a drum machine or something.

Anyways Here is a cover of a cover. Summer Breeze - originally recorded by Seals and Crofts, but based on Type O Negatives Cover version.

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Very nice Sir! It suits you and it rawks. The grungy vocals are pretty cool actually! Moar!!!

I just got my stuff in the right place but have to hook it up for the first time in 3 months. The cables that’s it and the mic’s still. I will potter tonight for sure hopefully share some stuffses later. :)

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Thank you. I'm trying to learn to sing, I find it hard to find songs that my voice can suit. I have a low voice, so when I try to go high it goes raspy, and if I try to sing fast I sound mumbly.

I actually never sang before in my life, not in the shower nothing, then I guess about a month or so ago now I taught myself to sing and play at the same time and since then I've just been exploring and practicing.

In life I'm quiet, I don't talk if I don't have to let alone sing so this is all new to me.

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

And While I was in B I had to do Blood and Fire by Type O Negative as well. https://instaud.io/3oH6

[–] Nadeshda 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Woo, this is goood! Very nice Sir! Liking it a lot! So darn soulful you! :)

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

This one sounded better to my ears. I likes this one better too. Maybe its the tempo or the lyrics LoL, Great song Mustard!!!

[–] crazy_eyes [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I remember this song from the old days. LoL. I could barely hear you singing. Nice guitar playing Mustard Man!

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I ran a noise reduction on it I think it muddied things up. I should have left it raw I think.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Is that Paul that you're playing through?

[–] Mustard_of_puppets 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Thats actually just my acoustic dropped 2 and a half steps down to B, the distorted sound is really just the strings flopping away like loose spegetti noodles. I like it, it's pretty fun to play.
