Description : Just some late night night raw slide playing with a drum track. Played on The Lone Rider 3 string fretless electric with an authentic wine bottle neck slide and a hand made wood pick. I spend hours at a time just lost in the beautiful hypnotizing melodies of these primitive instruments.

I feel the sweat dripping down my face as I sit in the bayou, swatting mosquitos and gnawing on a nutra-rat leg. he!

Keep having fun man and we'll keep listening to your soulful backwoods sounds.

Definitely not sweating here! I do live in the woods next to some swamp land, that's close enough to a bayou right? No mosquitoes this time of year, thankfully. As long as I don't hear banjos all is good ;) MMmmm nutra rat leg, my favorite! Do these tunes give you flashbacks to your bayou days? Oh I'm having so much fun it should be illegal!!LOL! I'm collecting license plates from all 50 states to make a license plate guitar for each state, got about half of them with more on the way. I'll even record a tune on each. Such simple expressive instruments it's pretty hard not to get a soulful sound out of them, regardless of what some may say. I'm trying to get some recordings in while it's cold, and before I have to start working outside making stock for the upcoming festival this summer. My shop is tiny!
Always a pleasure Wayne :D Watch out those mosquito swarms don't carry you off, listen for banjos too, RUN if you hear them!!

Although i do find the song a bit empty. Meaning there isn't much in it or to it when it comes to volume, ingredients, elements and a soul or heart only a drum and guitar. None the less i do dig the guitar play in it. And that is indeed the only noticeable thing to me. So yeah the guitar play sure was good and pleasant to listen to. But i missed a lot in it. It's probably because i'am used to using many different elements when i am making music perhaps. But like i said i still dig the guitar play. So i feel a bit indifferent to be honest. None the less keep on creating & listening. Have a good one, Verdi

We all have a different take on music. I've made songs with layer upon layer of instruments and sounds with alot of dynamics. Sometimes less is more. This was literally just some improvisational jamming after a tough week, with a drum groove for keeping time. One of the beautiful things about these primitive instruments is sometimes that's all you need is the guitar telling it's tale all on its own. I like to point to this tune as an example. Thank you for the honest feedback :D I don't do this to become famous or show off, just playing music is something I enjoy very much. I also love bringing attention to the homemade instrument revolution/renaissance showing people you don't need expensive instruments to let out the music inside of you. Imperfection is ok.

is that a Cigar box guitar ? very cool, always wanted one of those. psychedelic track man, wavey. Kind of makes me think of a dusty road out in the desert. I like the inspiration this brings, keep up the good work
Burtsbluesboxes replied 28th Jan 2020 - 4 years ago
It's not made with an actual cigar box but it is the same design. I used pine and a wallet tin for the body with a scavenged single coil pick up, 3 strings tuned GDG and played iwith a cut off wine bottle neck. Cigar box guitars are fairly easy and cheap to make, as they're traditionally made with found objects. Cigar boxes were readily available, but now they're made with license plates, homemade boxes, tins, gas cans, olive oil tins, bed pans, laptops, old game consoles... Imagination is the limit. I love how they can tell a story all on their transporting one to another time or place. Thanks JKingz.

After a long week, we don't always get what we want, I was just relaxing late at night unwinding with my favorite guitar. I could play for hours on end just chill melodies. Always a pleasure Danke
Handshake :D

It was right here on Looperman I learned about cigar box guitars and the homemade instrument movement, instant addict! I hardly ever touch my production guitars anymore in favor of my own homemade ones. Made so many great friends into the same, crafting instruments and accessories like picks, slides, pick ups, and other parts for creating music. The sound of these primitive simple expressive instruments can be very hyptnotic and I love how alone they can tell a tale. Thanks for the great feedback. I joined this revolution against overproduced/refined music a few years ago. The guitar itself is made of scavenged wood, an old wallet tin for a resonator, a scavenged single coil pickup with a bolt for a nut and bridge. My pick is a wood hand carved one from Mojoboneworks and the slide is a blue cut off wine bottle neck, handmade adds to the mojo ;)

Description : Sounds of the sea and trippy acidy washes with a cool beat and some live acoustic guitar. Written in Cubase with live guitar and keys etc. The sound of the sea and birds was recorded on the beach where I used to live. After moving to the city one sunny day I was telling stories to a friend about living by the sea and started making this track.

Description : I used some new "Anthem" pickups from L.R. Baggs on my Martin acoustic to see how it performed, and it definitely beat my expectations. Captured the sound perfectly as I needed.

Anyhoo, this song is almost a prayer, hence the repetitiveness of the verses. As Christians, we believe that God will one day return and take away every suffering and all evil for good; in that regard, this song is almost one of waiting too. Very simple, with vocal harmonies and whatnot. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Made in 13 hours.

Someone else wrote the words, I was just inspired to use them. I only added the "Yeah" and "Amen."

Description : This is a track off of one of my EP's I dropped last year. It is based on True events. Sometimes when people finally take a second in life to slow down and breathe in..... The oxygen is deflated and it's too late. Take your time people, because time is what differs a good decision over a bad one. Life is precious!

Description : This track describes a magical state that I experienced a long time ago. Maybe you also know the feeling that you can't describe something like this with words ... luckily we have the music for it!

Description : So a guy buys a nice guitar at a pawn shop but returns it a few days later after waking from a sound sleep to hear it playing by itself. When he tells of his experience he is shocked to learn the owner had actually died while playing it. Is it fantasy or truth? Is the guitar in this track that very same guitar? Its all part of the mystery and fun of Halloween !
EDIT: modified ending to a deeper voice

Absolutely fantastic vocals from her.

Pure chill-out electronica.

Some of my best chillout. Her vocals were definitely inspiring.

Description : A progressive journey incorporating deep ambient chillout, swing jazz, hip hop, d'n'b, trance and a slight touch of acid with a thousand ninjas battling in space. Features a great deal of my lead slide resonator guitar playing. Also a whole load of synths, programmed acoustic drum kits and manipulated drum loops, big basslines, regular electric guitar, vocoded guitar parts and bass guitar (distorted right at the end). If you like deep chill, far out soaring beauty, fat beats and 170 BPM uplifting slide trance controlled mayhem, you might just get into this. In my heaven there is an endless supply of honey mangoes (an exquisite beauty of the fruit world) and even more slide guitar. A 1,000-year-long version of this track plays there on a loop (long enough not to get bored of it) but here I offer you the Earthly 11 min version. You must be very good to be accepted into my heaven to hear the full thousand year version so best start now. It may be heaven's main theme tune but it's not above criticism so feel free to let me know what you think of it. Maybe you prefer the soundtrack in hell. I hear it's pretty badass...

Description : So Easter Sunday BeatMaker brought an instrumental Sunrise,it was brilliant, just what the world needed. I've gone and ruined it, I asked if I could do a vocal. So here it is. I'm no Lionel Richie, more Lionel RichTea, but I have a go, and before you ask, no it's got nothing to do with anything in my life, sentimental tosh put together to sound like a life long love story. I wrote this Sunday the wording I like, the singer is rag though :))) incorporated his title into the lyric, wink wink
