Re: Noodling for a short video

I enjoyed that trip Gerd! :clap: Well crafted track whatever your reservations, and my praise for to you for how good it is with no BT! I liked the more rapid guitar to coincide with the speeded up film. The canals look very well maintained and clean. A lot of canals I've experienced in the UK show ...

I do! His purple haze version is also great! :banana: A remark to the tea ceremony comparison: the area I live is known for having the highest tea consumption per person in the whole world, even more than China or GB. We celebrate tea drinking three times a day, at least. For the "Blues with other ...

Re: Currently listening to...

Martin sure knows what he does! :dance: I know Nightwish very well - my son has nearly all of their records. Fantastic voice and very professional musicians! Reminds me of my younger days when I was a bit into classic/symphonic rock (not rock classics) and listening to Renaissance a lot. Funny thin...

Re: Currently listening to...

Fine blues on that Route 66 link! Great tones from the guitar / amp too. Contrasting styles on display! Not been listening to much blues lately, but on the acoustic front I do regularly listen to Martin Simpson who can hit the notes in blues! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHY74AjKRjI i have a few ...

Re: Win 10 Cracked ... at last!

Sorry - didn't spot this post until just now. :shy: Many thanks for finding that for me. :D It does make more sense than that google translated attempt did!

Re: Currently listening to...

Fenson - I do like the Shakuhashi sound and music you linked and the Celtic improv piece with the tuned percussion instruments and the Shruti box is hypnotising and great listening. Thanks for mentioning me in connection with this one as it ensured i had a proper listen to it. You judged right in th...

Re: Currently listening to...

Late to the party on this thread! It'll take a while to catch up, but in the meantime I'll mention Gerd's first post. Interesting hearing those linked pieces Gerd. :thumbsup: The "Schizophrenia" one took my attention. Very much a recording of two halves. The first had me reminiscing about the German...

Re: Win 10 Cracked ... at last!

Thanks for the suggestion. :D Google tried to translate but the result wasn't very clear! From what I've seen it's quite a complex task to understand one of the win32 win64 bridges. I struggle a lot anyway when it comes to understanding anything to do with MIDI. Not that it's a major issue while my ...

Thank you kind sir! :D I've managed to install one of the Garritan Orchestral programs - "Instant Orchestra" and that seems to be working OK. :phew: I'll probably wait till next weekend to try out the "Personal Orchestra 5" - I don;t like to rush these things or be under a tight deadline. But unfort...

Re: Noodling for a short video

:clap: I have really liked your music for these sort of videos and this is no exception.

You have captured a sense of calm serenity and happiness in the music - which I assume is what you get from being on the water. :cool:

Win 10 Cracked ... at last!

After 5 months I have finally got a DAW and my USB interface to work on the new Windows10 PC. :banana: So at least if my ailing old Win7 PC gives up I can still record on to computer. A 2020 version of Magix Samplitude Music Studio is recently out, and I tried the free test evaluation option. Much t...

Cheers! Glad you liked it. :thumbsup: Very happy to see any sort of reference to John Lee Hooker made about a piece I played - my favourite of the blues guys of that era. :pray: I guess his minimalism appeals to me as I'm fond of that too. Funny - part of the reason for having 4 acoustic guitars was...

I Need My Bed Blues

Absent for some time, and finally got around to noodling some acoustic blues. Very free form, but hopefully blues feel. In DADGAD (influenced by Rob MacKillop DADGAD Blues book), which feels like standard tuning for me now! :music1: I Need My Bed Blues.mp3 Hope it's OK. Plus a semi improvised piece ...

Re: A Blues and a not so Blues

Ah ha - Mariae Nascenti - Milan if I'm nor mistaken! :think:

Though I confess to not recognising anything else. Looks great though, and very mush as i remember it looking in general.
All that's missing from looking at the pictures is hearing the bells ringing. Atmosphere! :thumbsup:
