Description : I did this Dylan-esque folk song because Joe Funktastic described an earlier track as sounding a little like his music. Acoustic guitar, harmonica and me singing.

    Sadly I never really got into Dylan. I guess too philosophical and political for my taste, but there's no disputing his talents and popularity as an iconic singer/songwriter and major pop culture figure. Great job though Wayne on the track, you certainly nailed the styling and delivered a very close facsimile in your performance.

    Excellante Mi Amigo !

    I really can't break it down much simpler than this when it comes to my music making and playing and performing. It exposes me as much as anything can i suppose. Although I didn't use my metal contraption that holds the harmonica while recording, I overdubbed, I did try to make it seem i was playing it at the time by not overlapping my vox with it, just a wee bit.

    Thanks!

    I really enjoyed this. A lot. I'm not a political person, nor do I really discuss them. But this is on the money in that arena.

    Not only is this Dylanesque, but the vernacular is very reminiscent of early Tom Waits, and the emotion that fuels it is very Traditional Irish ballad-like.
    I know you said it's a simple song about a simple man, but that may only be in chord progression and lack of backing instruments. When you get into the emotion, and the message, it's actually a very haunting piece. all o that combined with the exposure of vulnerability used almost as a weapon, it's really quite complex.

    I don't know if you intended all of that or if maybe I'm reading too deeply into it...but, either way. It's fully a powerful piece in a style that unfortunately, isn't really used, or even sadder, not taken as seriously as it was the last time protests and politics were a major threat to our society.

    I have to give you kudos for keeping it alive and well.

    Take care, Wayne.

    Hey man, thanks for telling me how you feel about it.

    Now if I said it was a song about a relationship with a girl gone bad would you have said the same thing? Cuz really it then becomes just another love song.

    Honestly, the reason I mentioned it was a political song in a reply and not the description was I figured most people would think of it as a breakup song as they listened. I wanted people to draw their own conclusions as they listened as to what the song was about. But I still had to make my intentions clear eventually.

    I meant it to be like a Dylan song, in lyrical depth and muse. I am no Dylan or a poet, hell I bet I only know a hundred........words.;) Making the analogy of my dissatisfaction with the status of my country to a relationship has been done a million times before. I just wasn't sure people would see what I was going for if I hadn't mentioned it, maybe too vague.

    I put this together in a day, a couple hours to record it and a couple mix downs. It sounds like real music played honestly and at my skill level, lol. And really that's all I try to do.

    Appreciate the visit!

Looking back on all the good times we've had gone by
Sometimes wonder why you always make me cry
I wonder
You always make me cry
Always make me wipe my eyes
And I am tired of all your lies

Well I have never
Well I have never

Never lost my faith before
Ain't gonna now or never more
You can't hijack my thoughts tonight
You just can't it ain't right

And I won't let you in now
And I won't let you in now

I have never

I have never

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 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 : A song about what's happening in my trees outside my house. A finger snap loop, a mandolin loop and a cabasa loop were used that I uploaded here a while ago. Acoustic guitar, bass, some singing and some piano.

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 : 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 : Kindofa '60s work song. Another song from my collab with Sunny War. This is the first song on our album HELP which we should get done this month. This song started with looperman-l-0498019-0072501-tumbleweed-90-g-slow-train-rhythm, a great rhythm guitar riff; the song just emerged out of it without effort. Props to Tumbleweed and his great guitar loops which I have often used. Then there were three other loops, drum, piano and lead guitar. Sunny replaced the guitar loops with her acoustic picking, using Tumbleweed's loop as the inspiration. The drum and piano loops remain: looperman-l-1703213-0101854-deathsquadktown-1994-inspired-hip-hop-drum-beat 90, looperman-l-0592478-0101770-designedimpression-piano-loop-will-power-94 g. Thank you, loopers! Feedback please!

Description : Totally different story here as I wondered if I manage to capture the real feel of the genuine folk music which I love as much as the electronic one. I also added some classical twist like oboe or short cellos arpeggio. Very basic arrangement though, still feel more confident with pure electronic sounds.

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!
