Re: Welcome

Viking Blues, hello to Scotland from Colorado! Gear that gets my vote is pretty much anything that can make a noise. If it's custom built or strung together with parts you took off the old lawn mower then it's even better (I'm a life-long hot rodder and it carries over to the rest of my life-I can'...

Re: Welcome

That's a mouth-watering sounding collection you've got there Jake. And a recording studio too - sounds like heaven to me. :banana:

Like HBL said, I'm sure a lot of us would be keen to see / hear some of these. :drool:

[And look HBL - another Cyber Twin!]

Sweet and good stuff coming from your side. I really like this one. Despite your age you keep growing ! (grin) Thank you HBL. One day I hope to have a vocal I'm Ok with and a good backing track that I've made myself - well we can all have a dream! :roll: VB ...this is a lovely track and you and San...

Re: Clapton Winwood 2010 tour

Good grief! You go to more concerts in 5 weeks than I go to in 5 years Strummer. :D I'm not surprised to hear about the hard work and showmanship of Joe Bonamassa, although I agree with you about the number of notes. If I keep going the way I am I'll be looking for a guitarist who plays a one note s...

Re: The Dead Bird (a mournful blues)

I think there's maybe a Chris Rea (the recent blues man reborn, Chris Rea that is) influence on my take on this BT - 12bar might be able to comment on this as I know he likes his stuff. :icon_whoknows: There is - this floating, singing tone has a lot of Rea. And the voice - perfect... :pray: Remind...

I rerecorded the vocals and remasterd the whole thing leaving out the 2nd guitar completely. http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9204045 Please tell me if this is more to your likings :think: :D The slimme...

Re: On a wire... mind your ears <G>

Sorry to hear the wheels are falling off here and there HBL. :alright: But .. don't be too hard on your vocals. To me they sound as if they fit the musical mood pretty well, and I can hearthe vocal gradually getting more sure through the song. It's much more difficult to be objective about your own ...

Excellent stuff. Well done VB (& Sandra). I was going to say, " watch out Mr. Rea", but Weelie beat me to it.

Re: Clapton Winwood 2010 tour

Interesting Strummer that both you and the reviewer highlighted the "problem" with the audience communication, though you put it much more sympathetically. I've got a great deal of sympathy for the performer(s) regarding this. It's such a different skill to communicate in a one sided conversation wi...

Re: The guitar question I hate asking

Strummer mentioned the Tanglewood TW70 in an earlier post. I've not tried that one but I do have a TW45 which stood out from the competition in its range when I was getting an electro-acoustic - one of those episodes of trying several guitars and its a no-brainer which was best. However the TW45's m...

Re: The Dead Bird (a mournful blues)

That was a mood trip, 2 say the least :D Really moody track there! I like it. Thanks guys - I'm glad the moody bit came across OK. I felt I caught that not bad so I didn't want to lose that by trying to fix the technical flaws. :D Some of Chris Reas more moody stuff (God's great banan skin and what...

(I think I use some kind of mode for some jazzy things, but I don't know what it is. :icon_whoknows: ) Thank you Blindboy. With the skill of the likes of yours...

The Dead Bird (a mournful blues)

More upbeat stuff from Viking I'm afraid. :yikes: I've been trying to get the hang of modes and while working on a few Aeolian BTs one of them (by David Wallimann) got right under my skin. I knew I had to try to get a song out of it. I had a poem called "The Dead Bird" where the mood would fit, but ...
