Re: Another Shade O Red

Great teamwork and interplay - such a good result particularly given you'd only just met.

Add to that a very fine piece of fluent and passionate bluesy guitar playing. Excellent indeed!!! :clap: :clap:

Re: Prhrygian Improvisations

Thanks guys! :D All this Phrygian stuff has got me starting to mess around with a bit of flamenco - many years since I last played any. I suppose it's a logical step to explore. But I'm not sure my older and aching fingers are up to making much of a go of it though. Having to tackle it with a small ...

Re: Sorry

I'm very sorry to hear about that Gerd - here's hoping you quickly return to some good days.

No need to be sorry about not posting - your health and well being should take priority. :thumbsup:

Re: RIP Gregg Allman

The endless gig would be something to hope for.

Another fine musician gone, may he rest in peace.

He certainly made a real big impression on the world during his life!

Prhrygian Improvisations

As tune writing has dried up and song writing dried up months ago :tears: I only have improvisation to fall back on in the creative sense. I have been exploring modes in DADGAD, and I thought it was time to try a key other than D! Challenge myself a bit. The key of "A" seemed a good choice to utilis...

Re: Might a new tool in your box?

Interesting piece of software. :thumbsup:

I see there's a plug in for it called Chordino and if this is downloaded too it's supposed to allow you to find out the chords being used in music.

:welcome: to the forum Traveler. :D Your guitar playing story with that big gap in the middle year sis indeed VERY familiar indeed.

I like these types of churches - quite simple and not too ornate and a feeling of calm about them.

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

I really like your addition! :clap: The chord sequence seems to take the melodic line strongly in particular directions, so I think it makes sense that there will be similarities between our two versions. A good thing anyway to have the two parts linked by some elements. :thumbsup: Apologies for the...

Excellent playing and fine control of the keyboard. :clap: It's difficult enough to try and play a keyboard, but add all those pedals and also all those tonal adjustment controls :yikes: - a long, long way from simple. Lovely sounds. :thumbsup: Nice to have a son who has taken to playing music so we...

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

Thanks Bb - glad you like the music! :thumbsup:

I'm interested that I turn to my Tanglewood TW133 Parlour (all mahogany) when it comes to songs, but nearly always the Vintage VE2000 GG for non vocal recordings. I guess all that mahogany suits my voice in some way. :icon_whoknows:

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

Thanks guys ... I'll continue working at it then. :thumbsup: Sorry to hear you're no further forward Gerd. :sad: I fear that the use of the same guitar on the two tracks was down to sheer laziness. It's the only acoustic I have tuned to standard tuning and I couldn't be bothered retuning one of the ...

More Gills in a Pink Fish

Sort of based on a fairly typical chord sequence of someone. :think: One track of acoustic guitar playing those chords and one track of it doing a lead line. Pretty much mostly pentatonic and a bit bluesy. Sort of.. Tanglewood TW133 Parlour on both tracks. More Gills in a Pink Fish.mp3 If anyone wan...

Re: Who's there?

I'm still around, but every year that goes by I seem to have less and less free time. It's taken me three days to catch up with this thread I see. :sad: I'm hoping to make it through to retirement in a few years and hopefully get some more time for things I enjoy. It doesn't help at the moment that ...
