More Gills in a Pink Fish

Postby VikingBlues » Sun Apr 16, 2017 8:00 pm

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.

If anyone wants a listen I've been trying to play some covers of the more folk type of songs the last few months. I like to try different things.
I've put the files in box.com

It's taking some time to get the voice to get in anything like the right ballpark for this sort of thing! :wall:

Any comments or advice gratefully received .... like "give it up"! :D

I did listen to all of them, and I hope you don't give up. Your voice fits exactly to those very melancholic songs, fragile and desperate.
They also fit perfectly to my current mood fighting a still unknown disease/infection (MRT gave no results).

Of cause I like the bluesy first one in E best... :clap:

:easter2: Happy easter, btw. !

+1!
As usual I've eventually smth to say, indeed!
Maybe a good idea to play different parts on different guitars... Different soundings often means different feelings and might help the lead guitar to come up like a second voice (contre-chant)... Just an idea though ;-)
Don't blame yourself that much, no reason! And please DON'T GIVE UP ;-)

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 others. At least you can't accuse me of being precious about my "art". :big_smile:

I like these quite a bit, VB. The Gilly one would be a fun collab if I were equipped to do a collab.
Don't fret about your voice. It's the one you have and it is never as bad as it seems when you listen back to it (believe me, I know about that!), and it will improve, the more you use it.
I'm enjoying the direction your muse has been taking you. :thumbsup:

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:

Maybe - what if you do the last step and record "live" (phone, camera etc.)?
If VB still has the separate tracks - why not? :dance:
