    You are an excellent instrument maker and musician.
    This track sounds so authentic.
    I could see this song being featured on an episode of Mayans while they're riding their Harleys...

    Esto es alucinante, suena de vicio, me gusta este ambiente hipnótico y LA ENORME CALIDAD EN LA PRODUCCIÓN. la lluvia y el cuervo complementa el ambiente espectral de la pista. Gracias Burtsbluesboxes por dejarnos descargar esta obra de arte. Que tengas un buen día. Paz y salud para todos.

    Awesome thank you :D You may need to use google translate like I did and that's what I got below. I do music as a hobby just like building these homemade guitars from junk. I find with production less is more. The more you EQ and compress stuff the worse you end up making it sound. I try and get the tone I like before recording, then adjust to get everything in the mix comfortably.

    Impresionante gracias :D Es posible que deba usar google translate como lo hice yo. Hago música como un pasatiempo al igual que la construcción de estas guitarras caseras de basura. Me parece que con la producción menos es más. Cuanto más ecualizador y comprimir cosas peor terminas haciendo que suene. Trato de obtener el tono que me gusta antes de grabar, luego ajustar para obtener todo en la mezcla cómodamente.

    Yeo Bart,
    You've still at it?
    I'm glad you're still here mate.
    Great track as usual my man.
    Well done

    Still at it and still lurking in the graveyards ;) I hadn't been recording much for a bit, doing more building than playing. I've got to take some time tonight and scroll through what everyone's been up to lately.

    i need those frets i think!! hdu are frequently quite loud and full on but they do some good atmostpheric stuff. a song called 'lull' off their higher album is a good example of their more ambient stuff. all the best to you

    Reply by Burtsbluesboxes

    LOL!! Fretless slide is definitely a different style. I like 3 string tuned open g GDG. I have a 4 string fretted tuned EADG like a regular guitar. There's one stringers, 2 stringers, 3, 4 5, and your traditional 6. Lap steels are pretty big thing too. People will make them out of a 2x4 or old violin case. If you get a chance look up Fat Knuckle Freddy. He's like the Jimi Hendrix of the primitive fretless guitars. He calls his style Graveyard Blues. Very Punk like, loud and full of energy. Very cool guy if you get to ever meet him too. I was set up selling guitars at a show he played 2 weeks ago, his dinner set was quite mellow, laid back playing, sitting in a chair. When he took the stage for the night set it was wild. Shocked some of the people :D

    Love the intro, guitars sounds awesome. Homemade far out, you're obviously a craftsman and we need more of those! I'll tell u this reminds me a little of a nz band called hdu who use similar layered guitar textures. But this is unique and I really enjoyed it.

    Reply by Burtsbluesboxes

    We sure do!! I'll look up hdu, I love dark atmosheric music. We need more fretless music, who needs those stinking frets any way LOL!

    Not the biggest fan of this genre, dark and moody, but had to comment on that guitar, whether it my thing or not, that guitar is superb and the crow was cool and I like the sharp end plain old stop, well done

    Reply by Burtsbluesboxes

    We can all learn alot from each other and other genres. I learned a ton here when I started out using a computer to make music from the electronic based musicians. I wish we could share pictures on here. The guitar is made from an old kitchen drawer, wallet tin, piece of oak for the neck and an old Telecaster pick up.

    This is great - dark and moody and wonderful (and with the crow sound a little quirky) production and I love that you actually made the guitar AS WELL as writing a great atmospheric track - really epic - I hope all the random listeners lean in to more than the first 15 seconds. Ends a little abruptly but nice work

    Reply by Burtsbluesboxes

    I'm very pleased with the first track Sorrow, the second needs a bit more work, really thinking I need to extend it. On you tube there's 2 documentaries on cigar box guitars, Songs inside the Box and Makers of a revolution a uk based one. There's a long history of homemade instruments by people wanting to make music but not able to afford expensice guitars and such. Damn things are more addictive than crack! Dark and moody is my favorite stuff :D

Sorrow like a ceaseless rain
Beats upon my heart.
People twist and scream in pain,—
Dawn will find them still again;
This has neither wax nor wane,
Neither stop nor start.

The highest proportion of child laborers is in sub-Saharan Africa, where 26 percent of children (49 million) are involved in work .

Description : A collab with nicetones101. Dark , gritty and with questionable intent. crunchy riff driven guitars and atmospheric vocals weave together a solemn track.Hopefully we invoke some sort of emotion! \m/

Description : A collab with nicetones101 ! This has been awhile in the making, real life caught up with me and i had to take a little musical break. I looked over my past comments i received and i tried to put all the constructive criticism to work ! I turned the vocals up a bit , I also cut down on the effects and left a clean vocal track. I did want the chaos and the noise to still be a player in certain parts though. I tried to create two distinct atmospheres, an uneasy calm and a manic episode. I prefer headphones with this track as there is a lot going on at certain times.

Description : A collab with fellow Looperman, "dssdsdsd". He posted a pretty wicked guitar instrumental a while back of this song from KoRns Untouchables LP with a request for someone to mix it. I decided to give it a shot to complete the song. Wanted to stay true to the original as possible but didn't want a carbon copy so I tried a few ideas of my own. Added a bit of my own guitar, drums, keyboards, a lot of effects and even stepped up to the mic for a try at the vocals.

Description : Psychedelic chillout stoner/doom epic. Badass heavy riffage and drumming plus big chillout vibes. Heavy electric guitar plus slow attack lead parts. Other beauty and ambience from filter swept violins, two synth pads and some subtle female vocal samples. Also bass guitar and sub bass. Two programmed, heavy drum kits and one lighter one, to fatten up the sound.

Description : One of my greatest heavy tracks. What I find unusual is the amount of melodic and deep ambient guitar that sits on top of low, distorted riffs and fat, heavy drums. Very little synth work here apart from the sub bass, which plays almost throughout. Bass guitar in two sections and a couple of slide resonator guitar solos. Drums are a few programmed metal/rock kits, no drum loops. What I still have trouble believing and understanding is that all of the many vocal sounds in this are actually timestretched guitar parts (8x or 800% slower). I don't know why the timestretching adds such a clear vocal component to the sound. Gets darker and more intense in the middle (and towards the end) but this is otherwise quite melodic - perhaps in a way that might put off some metallers. Shitloads of guitar playing, some fairly badass, and lots of heavy, crashing drums so press play if you want to rock hard but also in a deep ambient, psychedelic way. Interesting thoughts and reflections are, as always, greatly appreciated. Detailed comments preferred...

Description : Living in the Pacific Northwest, USA, I am surrounded by countless acres of forests and mountains. Having experienced them, I know that with as beautiful and serene as they can be, so too, they can be cold, deadly and unforgiving. That's what this song is about. The wide spectrum of emotions one can feel when alone in the forest. Whether you want to be or not. Let me know what you think. --- Take care. V.

Description : I am totally just gonna encourage you to hit play...and enjoy!

Thank you so much Mr. Bear for the track and the mix :-), now you'll have something to entertain you on your trip :-)

Description : I discovered Meshuggah around 2003 and was blown away by the power, complexity and super Heavy sound of their music. Their "Nothing" album marked the switch to 8 string guitars and pushed Heavy Metal into a whole new territory. My track is a variant cover of their song "Nebulous". I have stayed pretty close to the original but added a few dynamic elements of my own. Its loud, its super heavy and way out there...Beyond Nebulous.
