More Gills in a Pink Fish

Post by 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
and you'll need to add the https:// at the front of each of the url addresses below

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:

As if by magic!! :cool:

Here's the Rhythm track only if anyone wants a play around with it. See if it leads anywhere.

OK, 1st try:
VB, me and just the BT at the end - maybe it works :dance:
Not so easy to keep the original out of mind... :big_smile:

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 delay in seeing the post and responding - yet another very busy week gets in the way of pleasure. :tears:

Indeed, it leads to certain notes that fit perfect into the chord sequence. Maybe BB can add another flavor...? :wink:

I'll give it a try. Gotta find a time when my wife isn't needing the computer room. It's the only place I can hook to the laptop and play the music through the stereo.
