    Always admire the sound you get out of those CBGs...are you using the pickup by itself or including a mic in there?...sounds damn good every time & with just the right reverb to make it sing nice....and speaking of singing...Snowflake does some really nice vocal tracks...I`m betting this one is a bit diferrent for her...You do it well (I always find trying to compose top pellas a big challenge...anything other than voice I can nail the keys quick)....Missed this one before I guess Burton...sounding good as usual....Ed

    Reply by phatkatz4 This one just kind of happened. I recorded the music trying out the cookie tin guitar, 64 0unce Danish butter cookies tin (big one) fretted, with piezo pickup, then dropped Snowflakes spoken 'pella in and I don't think I even cut it to to adjust the timing! There is a spot where her voice gets a bit louder, I'll have to adjust that with a volume envelope. That's the piezo pick up only, played through guitar rig 5. It has some nice reverb all by itself too. I donated this one to the elementary school I'm a custodian at now, gave up my banks in December for it. The music teacher never heard of cbgs, now she has one to teach the kids about homemade instruments. She's doing a folk dance next month, perfect timing for them to get a cbg, cookie tin whatever you want to call it. I've heard a few of Snowflake's 'pellas used in blues tracks but this may be the first played on a cbg :p I love how these things sing! Everyone has their own voice. Gets really exciting imagining how the next build will sound. Thanks Ed, always a pleasure.

    Reply by phatkatz4 Wow Thanks Jamid :p I love spoken word set to music, a lovely voice is a bonus! I really like the message too. (recorded in the local cemetary) ;) LOL!

    I love CBG sound, with spoken word it felt more like an intro to a deeper song. other words for me to short. left me wanting more. love it.

    Reply by phatkatz4 Such simple,crude instruments but with such a beautiful sound!! Oh yes, I'm always left wanting more and more anytime I hear cbgs played! I can't stop building and playing them myself :p When I get an album together (free) I'll make a forum thread with a download link. There's a bunch of cbg music up on you tube too. Here's Swampwitch album to enjoy all played on cbgs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDRQtBVMmI8

    Very good tune...the combination of spoken voice and the distinctive guitar makes it very special! Thumbs up !:)

    Compliments_____Orlando

    Reply by phatkatz4 Thanks Orlando :p These guitars are very special being they're one of a kind handmade, not mass produced like so many overpriced ones. I LOVE spoken word with music!! So powerful. I really need to properly mix/master this. I'd like to make a cbg album for free download with this song along with some more unpublished material. I found Snowflake's and MissJudged pellas available for use on another site with the requirement to credit and link back, no problem since it's a pleasure to use such great works in my own stuff.

    To me as well this sound familiar, yet I'm sure it simply that CBG tone, which seems hard to avoid. I'm enjoying this sort of spoken word, which remind me of many classic psychedelic rock groups of yore. I surely understand the pitfalls of recording guitar such as this, and I think as it stand, you have done great work! I've actually been playing guitar again lately, after finding a Pod 2.0 for ten dollars a couple days ago. Spent this morning, between 5 AM and sunrise, practicing with my Hohner six string in the indo room. It seemed to transform my soldering iron burns into callouses very quickly. I think it helped the plants too. Had to kick the cat out of the room, though, since she like to chew on wires when I'm paying attention. Can't believe that she's not kitty flambe at this point. Listing to this again... it's quite groovy in a blues form. I think blues is something which I'll have to get past my obsessiveness to appreciate or perform fully. You obviously are past that. I appreciate that. Thank you for the inpiration. Fave!

    Reply by phatkatz4 I absolutely love that lo fi cbg tone! Just built a 3 string fretless olive oil can guitar today out of all found materials except the strings and tuners. Really loud acoustically, tuned open D, D A D, for a different tone then the usual open G, GDG. This is played on my 3 string fretted cookie tin guitar made with a 64 oz. Danish butter cookies tin, oak neck. Originally was for the school but I like it too much so I ordered more fretwire to make them another, the music teacher just laughed and said that's cool, the kids will love it when you bring it in. Also ran into the maintenance director of the high school when I came out of our little hut/workshop at the dump with my newest build, he got really happy saying he'd just taken up guitar. Good, you'll get one too for the high school :p I play through guitar rig 5 on my computer, that's a damn good price for a pod 2!! Jealous. Addicted to these 3 stringers! I want to make an electric diddley bow to jam on too. I have one with a piezo but magnetic pickups sound so much cleaner. Cat's can't seem to control themselves around cords, I'm constantly chasing them away. Remember National lampoons Christmas when the cat bit the christmas lights cord hahahahaha! Studies have shown plants like music, helps them grow. I got a Behringer 6 string I'm thinking I'll modify for slide since I have others for regular playing, higher action makes it easier for slide playing. Guitar can be such an expressive instrument! Thanks Spiv, lots more to come.

    I will be doing shortly XD

    I did not no! However the influence is always there ;)
    phatkatz4
    Reply by phatkatz4 :p I love the pellas available there. They're all attribution, non commercial but I don't make money on music and prefer to credit the artists anyway. I'm going to have to do something with some more Lovecraft stuff. Already did one for Cthululu and Yog Sothoth. Maybe Azagthoth will be up next.

    Loving the imagery of the vocals and the mournful crawl of the tin guitar in the background. Can't wait to hear what it sounds like when you've finished the mix. I predict goosebumps.

    Reply by phatkatz4 This just kind of happened hahaha I was playing with my newest toy before work and thought hey that would make a good loop. Recorded, uploaded it. Then said hey that would sound cool looped with some slide lead played over it. Then I said Hey I have those cool spoken word pellas... :D I'm going to make a video too. When I get dug out from this 3 feet of snow. Mournful crawl desribes it perfectly! Just look what us stupid humans are doing to the earth and don't even care. I don't have pics yet of the guitar yet but it,s made with one of those 64 oz Danish butter cookies tins, the large tin. Love the sound! Thanks TA

    This one feels familiar to me.. I can't wait until you mix this, the vocals have so much opportunity to terrify in true Lovecraftian form.

    Great work guys.
    phatkatz4
    Reply by phatkatz4 Do you ever visit ccmixter? The spoken word pella is from there, likely been used in other's songs over the years. Been so busy with work, hopefully this weekend I can properly mix this. Thanks Metabolic. Did you ever get to do anything with the rats in the walls?

Description : What happens when a short but hypnotic celtic intro turns into something completely different? The most noteworthy collaborator on this track (yeah you guessed, it's Tumbleweed) answered correctly to this question! A newly patented musical genre is what happens...yes..."SlovenianCelticCowboyMusic" is born. Sometimes we just have to cut off from being too serious...The version presented here has been carefully chosen from 4856 or so mixes... As always all thanks to my dear friend Ed who makes such wonders possible to happen.....

Description : I always wanted to write a cowboy folk song, something that would have been sung by a western settler as he explored the wild west. So come and join me as I sit next to a roaring fire, crickets chirping in the background and sing along if you want to. I only used the campfire sound effect in the third verse, I couldn't find a great campfire effect so I used it enough to give the effect without it being too annoying and taking away from the song. I used the classical guitar this time for some strumming, a little mandolin and some harmonica and some sounds of nature to add to the feel of sitting around a campfire. I sing the lead and backup vocals.

Description : Here is my first track since switching over to Ableton as my main daw a few months back. It's a folk, chill out track with acoustic guitar, mandolin, tambo, cabasa, guiro, bass and some glitchy sound effects for some interest. I also used a simple kick and hihat drum track, added some harmonica and some castanets hits. Has a western/latin feel. I must say I am totally sold on Ableton. Enjoy!

Description : I was talking to Behnam the other day and we were discussing singing on tracks and was telling him how infrequently I do it so I sat down and put this acoustic folk song together. This one is for all the people suffering from physical disabilities and impairments that make life difficult at times. The thought of trading myself in for an upgrade sounded like a good idea for some lyrics. A kick drum from EZ Drummer, some midi percussion and guitar lead, acoustic strumming and yours truly singing.
Description : I wanted to do something different like i do normaly. And I think that I was successful. A -drum ´n chill folk song-. A kind of hippie music in colorful garb of the modern era. At the end of the track there is a bonus. Something in the way of bonfire music.

Description : I had a lot of fun recording my last folk song, so I thought I'd take a stab at recording another one. This time I limited myself to 2 for all my vocals and instruments (guitar, piano, ukulele and organ). Enjoy the song and leave a comment letting me know your thoughts :)

Description : This is a country/folk track in a genre I don't do much, so I thought I'd give it a go. It also has some instruments I don't use much, namely the banjo, mandolin and fiddle. I got the title from a movie I saw a few months ago. Hope you enjoy, Scott.

Description : Special Thanks to minor2go for the great guitar loop! https://www.looperman.com/loops/detail/78340/guitars-unlimited-sunday-by-minor2go-free-90bpm-rnb-acoustic-guitar-loop Hey guys, I decided to try to make a track using a LM loop as the foundation! I made this "RnB" loop into something a little more "folk" i guess you could say. I added some filtered strings and tropical precussion behind it, and also gave it the structure of a tropical track as well. I actually have a youtuber who is going to provide vocals for the track so that is why some parts are bare.(so as to leave room for the vocalist to be creative with their writing) I really had lots of fun making this track and look forward to it getting finished off with some quality vocals. I haven't really mixed it well, and the bass during the drop is definitely going to be changed in the final product. If you guys have any critiques/reviews on things that need to be fixed or changed, please feel free to comment! Thanks again guys! Rico L.

Description : Two classical guitar tracks. Guitar tuned to an open C then I put a capo on the third fret making the song in the key of E flat. Added some delay to the picking track. Another quick idea, about 2 hours invested. Enjoy!
