Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

Wowee - atmospheric playing there! There is a good deal of reverb, but it suits the mood I think. :clap:

You've done well to get on the case so quickly, and at that high level too. I've not even managed to play a note yet!

Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

Miriam and I are leaving today for a three week camping trip and I'll be offline for a while. I am taking my wooden resonator guitar with me, though. Hey congrats on 34! No rush, I am traveling the next week or so on vacation....I won’t have anytime to play either. I hope you all have good vacation...

Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

Great Tytl - thanks for posting those! :thumbsup: Sorry for the delay in response - heavy week at work and 34th wedding anniversary yesterday so not enough time for forums! I'll try and get some time to start playing around with this backing track, but I can hear stuff in my head when I play it, so ...

Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

I'd be happy to have a go! :thumbsup:

Wow - loved the way your guitar came in at 0:48! :clap:
Very soulful and emotional playing that matches the swampy backing perfectly.
A definite late night feel to the music.

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

Really enjoyed putting this together, and I do have a few more original backing tracks when we are ready for another!!! I miss these collabs and am glad that my bass player helped me participate. Now he wants the Trainwreck band to put together a backing track for a collab. Whenever it might be - a...

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

Your "safe mode" sounds good to me .... excellent work Gerd! :clap: I've just listened to the completed track several times and it sounds like it works well to me. A wide contrast in styles and a shame that I was rusty with lack of practice / playing - but that variety from the four players makes fo...

Re: Killing Rag

Good playing - I did enjoy that Bob! :clap:

You got nicely in a groove there and it was quite hypnotic as it slowly built and evolved. :D

Re: Black Sun Rising

Thanks guys! :D Strings (and woodwind) were me using my inadequate keyboard skills and Garritan Orchestral Software. So I'm now playing a keyboard in DADGAD! :lol: Unfortunately my lack of MIDI knowledge at the moment means I'm limited to two orchestral tracks of MIDI in my DAW. It then seems to run...

Re: Greetings!

Wow - I see from your reply about gear that you're heavily into blues and music in a big way! Using Danny Gatton's guitar tech too - class! I don't have personal experience of Bill M mods but I've hears there's big benefits to low end, high end, extra range of tone and control, improved presence and...

Re: Greetings!

:welcome: to the forum BSBlues - hope you like it here. :D We might be quiet here sometimes but we're very friendly. The Blues saved my guitar playing from stagnating and gave me some understanding of playing with feeling and trying to play in my own voice. I'm 63 heading on 64 but regretfully I hav...

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

All up and running on Private Messages it seems. Cheers! :thumbsup: Just had another listen to the collab so far after a very long and annoying day of work. It's looking good, glad I managed something despite the rusty memory and technique (and rusty strings), and the track goes up a gear nicely wit...

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

Here's my go at the first part to let you start moving on to the rest of the collab.
Wav file of guitar only sent to Tytl.

Good to have you on-board BB. :thumbsup:

Have fun guys! :D

Cheers Tom - that'll all be good as far as I'm concerned. :D Might be the weekend before I can give it proper attention as I'm busy at work with auditors in this week. I liked what I heard you do and that encouraged me to get the guitar out again. :thumbsup: Did manage a more successful noodle tonig...

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

That's good Tytl .... I will try and take the opportunity to get some practice in while you get things started. Tonight I got the PRS P90 out, tuned it (all strings down a semitone except the G-string which was at E!), plugged in the recording interface and managed to remember the settings, and then...

Re: Original Backing, C Min Blues

Hi Tytl - hope you're doing well too! :thumbsup: I could hear some possible notes in my head when I listened to your backing track, so I might have a look at this, possibly with a view to a collab. But I've not played an electric guitar for the last 4 months since we moved house and not for a good f...

Re: Chicago and the Blues Brothers

Nice end result - better every time - how upgrades should be.
That'll take you back well to old memories of your visit when you look at it in the future. :thumbsup:
