Description : This is something unusual stuff from my side but something very special. First thing i have to say is that Phatkatz made a cigar box guitar by himself and loaded a blues loop up. Next thing was that i just played around with a virtual accordion that is inside my new DAW. the third thing is that i watched a picture on audiosparksforart. And all together fits so excellent that i send it to the side as "music for art" .... then Dan (Midisparks, the owner of audiosparks) told me that there was a contest on his side and this little track was inside. http://audiosparksforart.com/project/red-velvet-hat/ And what shall i say - I won with this one - comments always are desirable. -joe-
Description : A track I did with a friend ages ago. I play the guitar and he sang and wrote the lyrics. The lyrics came mostly from headlines in the newspaper that sunday. Recorded using a crappy old microphone direct into cubase with a few overdubs
Description : Just an acoustic/piano piece I threw together a few nights ago when coming home from university. My brother and I were doing some acoustic music together in my room, just having fun; came out with this; I immediately got on my DAW and recorded it before I forgot how ti went lol. Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.
Description : Here's a lil' acoustic instrumental I never wrote words to. Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3
Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!
My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.
Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Enjoy! There is a drumless version too, with completely different atmosphere : https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/181322

Description : It gives me great pleasure to upload this track I did with Richie. Usually we work "backwards", with him building a track around my vocs, but this time his instrumental came first. I love it's encouraging and motivational lyrics and as always Richie's care in making EVERYTHING perfect! :-) Totally didn't know what genre to put it in. Enjoy.

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...
Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.
I got the acapella here: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/7656/marauder-feat-dikaiko-by-a1000times-132bpm-dance-acapella
EDIT: This track has been updated. I think I'm going to call it finished :)
Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!
Description : BEAUTIFUL guitar with pianino chords. This is sad guitar. But this guitar have a positive mood.
Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)

Description : Remastered March 2023. Recorded live on two mics. For my wee daughter Tui; I wrote it sitting on the bathroom floor, keeping her company while she was in the bath....
Iam a big fan of Phatkatz4,you have done good work,it is simple,but original,good for lifting up a spirit,when it is low!cigar box guitar+accordeon=blues!
Nice virtual accordion sounds ! It goes surprisingly well with that bluesy loop.
I really like coming across such tracks. It's completely different and offers a refreshing taste of original music.
Nice work, thanks for sharing !
It's quite simple but the feeling is all there, almost looks like a movie soundtrack for Emir Kusturica.
Very fun song this is! I don't know if you've heard of the group, but this reminds me a bit of Tiger Lilies, minus the crazy vocals. Enjoy their stuff, especially when I'm very inebriated. I could definitely hear this being great with your vocals, but I understand wanting to do instrumentals every now and then. Very fun listen, and good use of the virtual accordian! I just picked up another magnus chord organ recently, and can't wait to play and sample it... they have a sound similar to an accordian but use a keyboard which directs air from a fan through reeds. It's a model 399 from around 1970, and is the best condition one I've ever seen. Fun. Thanks for sharing this song! Fave!
Not the usual Cramer sound as you said. But you made a nice nostalgic track which is really telling a tale. I have favoured it on the link and hope you are able to win. I also agree to use some guitars in it. That would give a real fusion of different genres to the table. Nice to see you are experimenting.
To me this is an interesting juxtaposition of american blues and european accordion that would make an awesome intro to a heavy thrash metal tune. If you keep going with the chord changes as heavy guitar riffs and add some blast drums this could become a very interesting song.
Sound like a plan :p I'll work on it a bit and send you something a couple days. Maybe your blues lyrics will get used after all. Do you listen to heavy metal while playing with heavy metal? ;) Don't you love when plans change and the songs take control hahaha Accordion has a cool sound, I think I have an accordion vst but not that one. Watch for more unusual instruments in the future. There's so many I'd like to try but the price is too much so why not build cigar box versions :D Slide ukelele sounds like a good idea! Maybe a violin too. I saw plans for making a rawhide bow for use on a violin/cello. I've seen a homemade cigar box (maybe not a cigar box but a big box) cello!
Exactly as you say Joe...unusual but very special1 Great extra listen for this evening and now I'm also curious which DAW includes this accordion, if I may ask...?
Nice and unconventional work, my friend !:)
Love what you did with that loop! It's has a world music sound, the accordion with the cigar box guitar. I think it fits the picture well, she does look like you ;) Love the added depth music can add to pictures. I downloaded plans for a russian folk instrument, a balalaika, that be fun to try and make. I have a few more cbgs in the works and started my first full sized regular electric guitar YAAAYY! It's shaped like a coffin. Beautiful day today so I'm trying to get things cut outside and glued. Did you start on your guitar build? Fav'd here and on audiosparks. Great to hear music played on not so common instruments and that loop was useful! I started something with it just haven't gotten back to work on it anymore. Not sure if I already have a copy of this but downloading and adding to my player now.
Cool. Looked at the pictures too while it played, nice stuff
