Just wait until I buy a guitar and post some stuff. Pretty sure you'll ban me. Then I'll start /v/theRealDonaldGuitar and start a Friday Afternoon guitar thread and steal all your thunder by reposting archived v/guitar content using a bot.

Yes, I've thought a lot about this.

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

Sweet! That'll save us some effort and we can just join your thread!

What's your favorite kind of music, Putt? I might have something already uploaded that will tickle your ear drums.

[–] toobaditworks 1 point 7 points (+8|-1) ago 

IRC Puttitout is a huge polka fan.

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

ROFL, oh heck this sounds legit :p I did spy your post earlier and thought to myself you are certainly thinking his whole thing through huh?

:)

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

Evil is open 24/7

[–] SandHog 1 point 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

Ever thought about doing stand-up, Putt? That's funny some shit right there.

[–] PuttItOut 1 point 7 points (+8|-1) ago 

Don't encourage him.

[–] heygeorge 1 point 4 points (+5|-1) ago 

In the meantime, we’ll accept a dance video.

[–] PuttItOut 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

This is what I'm working on now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y6kkgVyLMY

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

We ALL still need to dance together, on the test site we joked around but seriously we need to summin Mister George...You are always so right about things!

Hello and welcome to another Friday night guitar thread! Like normal, I'll go ahead and get you started.

This week was fairly tame and uneventful. For once, we weren't running around at the last minute putting a track together for you. However, that doesn't mean we didn't do our best to give you something that you will enjoy.

This is a departure from what we've been sharing lately. It also contains a small surprise! So, without further ado...

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together and give a warm welcome for the Eldest Hoodlum and TheBuddha Band, as they cover The Cure's Friday I'm In Love.

https://instaud.io/3DfV

There's not much more appropriate! We do love the Friday night guitar thread! Why not have an upbeat and happy song for a change?

Now, look carefully at the guitar numbers in the title. Yup, that's the Eldest Hoodlum on lead and Ol' Buddha is relegated to playing the rhythm guitar. This is my guitar student, in whom I am well pleased.

(She encourages you to listen to the original, if you're unfamiliar with the song. It's a pretty good song.)

Rock on, goats. Rock on!

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

Beautiful. I bet this one was fun to play. You both played great!

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

"Thank you, Crazy. It wasn't very hard but you use the whole fingerboard."

She caught me singing it last week, and hadn't heard it before. So, we decided we'd cover this one this week.

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

Oh this is wonderful, so much... I love the Cure... so good! Oh how light, airy and wonderfully touching... life is good and better when you guys are here helping me to float on imaginary clouds of loveliness! Lovely is the appropriate words!

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

You made it!

tackle hugs

"Glad you liked it! It's a fun song to play. It's not very hard, you could learn it too!"

[–] COF 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

OK, since I have no tracks, I'll do my thing. The same guy that did Robt Plants records and the Page/Plant tours (Michael Lee) is the same drummer the Cure used on some tours.

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

Great moves, EH! Very confident sounding. Nice to hear you in the lead spot, and also nice and clear, free of the overdrive.

Buddha, you did ok.

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

"Thanks. It isn't very hard but it is fun to play."

And, I always do okay. That's my job.

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

That was very nice. A good tune to start the night slow and easy, just what I needed. I kinda like "slidey", it shows off a lot of talent and feeling. For me, music that shows emotion is calming and the heart of an artist. I'll listen to the original later when things slow down.

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

"I'm glad you liked it. It's more upbeat and happy. It's a good song for tonight. Friday I'm in love."

Glad ya enjoyed it. It's not necessarily as complicated but it does get some passion points and she did a fine job covering the lead.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 15 points (+15|-0) ago 

Chris and I just played this here little ditty laid back country picker

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

Sounding good, crazy. It got my foot tapping.

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

Must have been the drums!

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

Sounds good.

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

Thank you!

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

Wait... Where'd the drum come from?

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

casio keyboards!

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

Nice vibe

[–] LegalPERSON 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago  (edited ago)

This is a quick demo of a new song I just finished writing. It’s only my guitar part and drums as the bass and other guitar still need to learn their parts, but figured I’d share anyways.

https://instaud.io/3DiY

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

Sounds cool! I would love to hear it with the vocals and bass

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

Me too haha! The other guitarist can almost get thru his parts so I’m hoping he’ll have it down in the next couple weeks. Then I’ll drag the vocalist over so we can get that all going once the bass sends his track to me

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

Holy crap! I always know, before I even listen, I'm in for an absolute treat whenever I see you post. Man you freakin' shred each time. Woohoo, rock on!

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

Thanks so much for the kind words COF!

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

great! i can hear opeth type vocals

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

I love me some Opeth! Incredible musicians

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

Bad ass. I love it!

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

Thanks Sand! It really comes together with the second guitar but I haven’t recorded that part myself, and am hoping my other guitarist gets to it soon.

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

Ok, this totally sucks, but I recorded this junk after a few days of learning my way around a harmonica many years ago. It's short and sweet.

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

That was cool. Just gotta break it up with some lyrics in between and you’re all set!

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

Heck yeah. That sounds a little like a slow version of the beginning of Train, Train by Blackfoot. Keep it up and make a regular stop every Friday with some more.

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

Wow, that's something to aspire to!

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

Nah, it doesn't suck. It's not what's his face from Blues Traveler, but it didn't make the dog howl and the kid next to me laughed.

You're officially the first one to play exclusively the harmonica (I believe). I've shared some studio work where I played a harmonica because our harmonica player was in jail.

Do you know any songs? I bet you can play Oh Susanna by ear!

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

Naw, I don't know any songs, but I want to. And that's why I like this thread.

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

Holy shit, I have a harmonica here. You just reminded me. I'm awful with it, though.

[–] catfishjones 1 point 13 points (+14|-1) ago 

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

Hah! You're back again. Welcome!

This is new, at least to me. I like the video. It fits the voice, as it's almost a surf type of vocals. Maybe even a light touch of that guy from Sublime.

Is it safe to assume you did all the video work as well?

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

Glad you enjoyed it. I did do the video work insofar as capturing a public live stream and changing the colors. The cam bot and skaters did all their own stunts.

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

I dig it in a far out way.

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

That was lovely to listen to, kinda on the shoreline, sea breeze waving through my hair... warm/hot day, surfers dodging rocks and sharks in a some nice waves, small fishing village, takes me to a place I haven't been in a while, thanks for sharing!

EDIT: I couldn't view the video at the moment but will later, just listened to vocals.

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

Now thats nice, quality recording too. The lyric/subject sounds a little like a Billy Joel song, which is a compliment.

[–] bosunmoon 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

I did a thing.
https://instaud.io/3Dh4 https://instaud.io/3Dh1 https://instaud.io/3DgZ

No real songs but I did finally play my dust collector.

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

LOL We usually try to share one track per comment, but there's no real rules here.

If you blow your load all at once, you leave everyone unsatisfied. ;-)

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

I'm throwing ropes. Ropes for days.

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

The first one demonstrates more skill than the rest, I think.

What brand guitar is that?

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

It's a mishmash homemade jobber. But the pickup i was on was the neck pickup out of an ibanez ic 400. I think it's a super 80.

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

Hi Everyone ... I'm late to the party .... story of my life .... but I thought I'd share some of my more mellow stuff with you. https://soundcloud.com/carl-suiter/or-so-they-say-original-song-by-carl-suiter

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

Sweet! I'm glad ya made it, even if late.

I'm gonna see if I can draw some attention to your post.

I suspect I don't need to ping @cynicaloldfart, he reads these threads at least twice! @crazy_eyes, @nadeshda, @legalperson, @ heygeorge

There, I'll ping those and I'll make a submission as well. Thanks again!

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

Thanks for the ping. This guy is great!

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

Thanks for all the kindness you've shown me here. It is appreciated by me more than you know

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

Umm... I broke my @heygeorge post, and editing it won't fix it.

Also, @mustard_of_puppets I think was a fan of Carl's work. I have no idea where @mrharryreems is, but I assume he's busy.

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

Glad you made it and another Gem too, I swear hearing you songs they belong on the radio or something, always so professional, 10/10 quality.

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

I prefer sharing them with people like this excellent Guitar group on Voat ... Thank you for the very kind words Mustard _of_puppets

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

Excellent song man!

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

Thank you LegalPERSON !!!

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

Sounds wonderful Carl! Great song, sounds really good with my hangover today! I'm glad you made it, Better late than never!
