Blue Noodles

Acoustic parlour guitar. As few notes as possible - suiting my relaxed mood.
A bit bluesy - close to being a one chord vamp. Bit of sparse organ thrown in.

:music1:


Blue Noodles.mp3 - (3.36 MiB)

Not my usual!
Too minimal??? :icon_whoknows:

Re: Ambient

Thanks Fenson! :thumbsup: I've recently watched a commercial film on dvd where there was an extra about the music soundtrack. The composer of the film score mentioned he'd used the Paul's Stretch software a good deal to incorporate stretched sounds into the film soundtrack. It was quite a low budget...

Thanks All :D - sorry for the delay in reply - since I retired I don;t seem to have time for anything!

Certainly a post for difficult to "80ra42" that's difficult to get your head around. :eye_rub:

Re: Two Bluestunes of Mine an a link to My Album.

Modal interchange, and I don't pretend to know what it is, seems to be producing a more complex set of sounds and harmonies. "I Wish You Back Alive" seems to be taking me back to the 70s and some of the music coming out of the progressive side of music in Germany. Pehaps too the Phrygian element hel...

Re: "BRAVE EXPLORERS TOUGHT & a smile from Emelie"

Very fluent for the first time in the min6 pentatonic - sounds good to me, and every so often i was getting a Frank Zappa vibe from it. Not sure whether from scale used or phrasing or guitar tone? Good stuff! :thumbsup:

One very clear thing from what I hear / see on your channel is how inventive and different what you play is. :thumbsup: A second thing that is clear is how you leave me far behind when it comes to theory and musical structure!! :big_smile: Certainly a place to go to hear something different - thanks...

Another Time Another Plaice

A good few months since anything bluesy. Just to check i still remember the minor scale in standard tuning I grabbed a BT at random today, and did a first take recording. PRS SE Middle PUP : BC Free Amp VST Classic Crunch, but fairly well dialled down. Probably should have used a real amp! Paid for ...

Re: Ambient

Another go at the Ambient Stretched Sound. A wee 3 minute piece. Called "Owl Stretching Time" because (a) that was a possible name for Monty Python and (b) because stretched sounds of Owls form the foundation of the piece. But it's rather more like a soundtrack of something a bit creepy - exploring ...

Another most enjoyable video journey. :thumbsup: The progression might be simple but it's what you do with the phrasing and the note emphasis that makes it special! :clap: Lovely stretches of guitar noodling too.

Re: Ambient

All the detuning and retuning before and after installation is a bit of a pest, but it's probably unwise to keep the extra bridge in place for long. It does exert a downward pressure on the soundboard. If you like an acoustic guitar with a good resonance (which I do) it's likely that the soundboard ...

Really sorry to hear that you had just a bad time of it all - quite the worst year for that to happen too. :sad:

I hope that good progress is being made from the illness, and hope you get some better times soon.

The Blues Room - not just for Blues here, but "open for Jazz and Rock" too it says! I'm off beam for any of those styles with this Ambient style though! :roll: But what the heck - someone might like these. A mix of VST MIDI synth and the use of Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch software.

Re: Stone Cold Sober Again (jazzrockfusion)

Dirty sounding is right! :yikes:

You got all the instruments in a really tight arrangement, and the rhythmic aspects get it right into fusion territory. :thumbsup:

If things sounded this hectic when I was stone cold sober I'd be reaching for the bottle!!! :lol:

Re: My Personal Suggestions/Advices For Improvising (Shooting) Over A Bluesy Vamp. (The Inner Logic)

I do hope after all the work you've put into making this post that there's some guitarists can take advantage of all that information. As a lapsed electric player, and a lapsed blues player i don't really fall into that group of guitarists. I admit to that if i was I have never been to great on the ...
