Moving out of state.

In anticipation of our move, I decided to cut down on my instrument collection. We went to Music Go Round PA. I took in my old, oddball and unused instruments. I expected one price, would settle for another but got more than I expected. However, the guys checking out my used equipment were in awe of what they called, "an eccentric collection". It was sad but necessary.See More

"I'm almost 60. My digital recorder is a stand alone unit and it's not a computer although it acts like one. My major problem is finding the time to work on stuff. Being OCD and very picky about what I like takes a lot of time."

Recording vs. Playing live.

I am mostly an acoustic singer/songwriter. I'm in the process of recording some of my own songs. When I do perform them it will most likely be as a solo performer. However, I have many friends who are excellent musicians and willing to work with me in the recording process. Where do you draw the line when it comes to recording tracks that you know you can't duplicate in a live setting.?See More

My recording process.

My recording process is coming along nicely. When I listen to a playback I am less embarrassed than last time.

Dave,

 

Thanks for listening to "Run Again!" I have played alone for so long it would be difficult to play with a group. And my knowledge of bass playing is non-existent! I do have some drum loops that I've used in the past but not enough knowledge on my mixing abilities. I use the free program Audacity to record all my tunes.

 

A few years ago I tried playing live with a keyboardist and a drummer and I had a hard time keeping within their framework. I play too loose! I only practice with a electronic metronome once in awhile. I guess you could say I'm a wild cannon!

 

I only have a couple of local friends that still play, most of them have moved on to other activities than music. So I go on playing music on my own with the computer as my tool.

 

I, too, would like to here group arrangements for my tunes, that would be great!

 

Thanks for your input!

Kirk

Dave,

 

Thanks for taking time to listen and comment! Yes, Neil Young is one influence as well as the Beatles and others. In fact I have the Easy Guitar book for their Deja Vu album of CSNY and I like to play "Helpless" for fun. "Old Man" is also a favorite to play and sing, also a Neil Young tune.

 

I think I am a stylized rhythm player and an improvising lead player. No telling what my lead will sound like the second or third time around! It's just part of my learning so much by myself and only being in a garage band in High School, no one to take the sharp corners off!

 

On "Open Secret," I used my Toneport UX1 with the Gearbox software set to microphone only and using a Detroit RnB vocal preset for playing and singing, keeping it simple but adding some flavor to the song. I am from Michigan and live about an hour away from Detroit! So a little MoTown influence too.

 

Keep playing in that simple music style, many times it's what sounds best!

 

Kirk
