Description : This is a track I'm working on. I have the sounds I want in it. I'm trying to learn how to master things. I welcome your input on how it can be improved. Please.

From an old Appalachian folk song. Done by request.

I'm okay with this song enough that I put it on my album, Closet Monkey.

The studio quality you are looking for is pitch adjustment. not autotune. but a flex program like melodyne or newtone or Pitch-Flex. Great project but some of your notes are just barely missing and that is what making this track sound :unprofessional" if you. dont believe me email me and i will correct the notes for you and show you. my email is listed on my looper profile

Hey, for whatever reason I never saw this comment before. I want you to know, I *do* believe you. Learning how to fix is something I'm trying to do, although I admit I'd like to just get the notes right to start with.

your voice is perfect! it is true that I am missing a musical "base", which does not detract from the quality of your voice !!

My friend who heads up an Americana styled band plays this song live, really surprised it showed up on looperman. I like your version, it's honest and real. The drums and tambo add just the right amount of musical impact. The ticking clock is apropos.

I remember this song. The late great Ralph Stanley has a version up on YouTube. Great job on the vocals, as you really captured the spirit of American folk singing.

Americana music is still alive and well. Keep doing what you're doing. Marking this as a fave, and I wish you all the best.

Description : Update Nov 11.: Mastered
Many might be surprised to hear music here that lies somewhere between chanson and folk.
We wanted to write a song that wasn't dominated by synth or electric sounds. The text was written by Claudia Boekels, the music largely by Angelica Schwanitz and to a lesser extent by Manuela Boekels.

We were especially looking forward to the wonderful collaboration with Tanja Wirtz, who has great talent on the accordion, and Danior, who can make his violin cry.

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 : 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 : My own original. One autoharp doing 2 parts, a gourd, & vocals. Americana goth.

Changelings are a worldwide thing. When I learned that I had to write from the point of view of a mom who uses a cradleboard.

What I've done: I've done things for album makings. Hoping I did a good job because it went onto my album, Closet Monkey. By gum.

Get off my lawn.

Description : My Dad found his old 8-track recorder. I think he was going to ask me if I was interested, but I was already half way to my room with it and a new song forming in my head.
This track is more of a straight-forward folk song. The opening is completely recorded on the 8-track, so it's a bit more lo-fi. Then the track kind of opens up into a cleaner chorus. I hope you enjoy my little experiment.
