"A good job on this song. Brought me back into AGC. Haven't been here lately. I really liked the vocals. As far as tuning the guitar down a couple steps, I figured that trick out myself a few months back. I pretty much keep it there,…"
"Shenandoah has always been one of my favorite songs. I first heard it being sung in the movie How The West Was Won. I loved it when the little girl sang the 1st couple of lines. Anyway, this is a beautiful version. I really like the playing. It…"
"I don't see how a company can claim it's a work for hire, when they aren't paying you anything to begin with. Go figure?! I guess it's a trade-off. In some situations, it probably does make sense to surrender your rights. Weigh…"
Thanks for the compliments! I do digital art for my blog listed in my profile. I use various graphics programs to "construct" an image. And for a trial period I had Adobe's Lightroom which allowed me to adjust photographs I took of my own guitar and my son's guitar. I enjoy a grungy feel of images so I do use Texture backgrounds. I usually explain how I do them on my blog.
Lately I've done a few images of our new Grandson Zeke (Ezekiel) and some others not guitar related.
"Collision Warning" was a blast, it seems the more enjoyable they are to create the better they sound! Very happy you enjoyed it too!
I have had many suggestions to make changes in my songs, so the question you raised is a good one. How many times can you reshape a tune and should you copyright every change in succession? I'm afraid I don't have an answer for that.
My guess is it is up to the songwriter how he copyrights his tunes and whether or not to copyright successive changes. I am not sure you could use the same "titles" as you have already copy written the original tune!
I think you've raised a group of questions with your thoughts, and I am no expert! LOL!
Thanks for the comments Steve. Sorry about the bar chords, I hang my head in shame. Seriously though I thought the sparse accompaniment worked well when the melody goes down the octave. Interesting you feel it didn't. I'll maybe rethink what I'm playing at that point. Good feedback.
I had a listen to your stuff,keep it up some good sounds there.
