Re: Black Sun Rising

Cheers! Thanks for the positive thoughts. :D
Quite fun playing around with orchestral colours - despite my lack of proper music theory!

Re: Just A Walk....jam or collab

That sounds interesting - I found myself humming some notes in that second half while listening, so maybe worth a try.

IF I can find myself some time. Stop the World - it's going too fast. :sad:

Nice Jazzy playing Sir, and a nice use of octaves too! :clap:

Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

:sad: Evening All! Now I've got computer problems - oh well! Goes in on Monday to hopefully get fixed, but a possibility of hard disk issues and the possible resulting re-installation of everything. :wall: I've been looking at possible replacement machines but then hit the Win10 and lack of Win7 pos...

Re: See You In New Orleans Song and possible Collab

Sorry guys - I've been so rushed off my feet in every way in day to day life that guitar has not just taken a back seat, it's been left standing left behind at the roadside. :sad: Finally had a chance to have a very rough try out. An initial attempt below, but by no means what I might end up with. T...

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...

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...

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...
