    Pretty sure Woody Guthrie's tapping his toes to this in his grave. Nice, clean production too. Great job man.

    Sweet song man, and yep totally sounds like you're right here in the room. And I think only you would ever use the words choo choo in a song here :)

    Ha! I was wondering if I'd get a comment on the choo choo line. Fun to sneak something like that in a song, gets the kids interested in riding the rails.

    I love hearing the live track. The guitar sounds clean. Reminds me of Bob Dylans and Johnny Cashs Travelin Thru. That is a fun listen.

    Thanks Mr. Smokey!

    I agree, has the Johnny Cash sorta feel.

    Man... What a way to start the New Year.
    I love this track. It sounds like you are
    right here in the room. To me, the Mastering
    is off the charts.

    Great track. Faved.

    Thanks Jynxz!

    It's not technically mastered but I get what you are saying. Been working on gain staging lately, been helping with the clarity of the tracks.

    Be safe, Happy New Year!

    You don't need a ticket the way he travels in the song my friend. The MAN isn't getting paid for the trip, lol!

    I'm not sure what else I could've done to add to it so it became a short song.

    Stay safe.

    So cool to hear a new song from you my friend! Leave it to you to make some real authentic folk, with all the pleasure intact! That guitar sounds really nice, sounds like you are experimenting with your mic placement, and it's working! Really good to hear your work again! Favorite for sure!

    Thanks, good to see ya around Patrick!

    Yeah, I might have found a sweet spot, I just recorded it again and got a nice level and tone. I had it mixed with some drums and vocals and they were fitting in the mix better.

    Take care man, be safe!

    I stop by your place when I want to hear some of the real stuff...straight up down to earth music. never stop Wayne..always enjoy a listen here...well done again man...(cool lyrics too by the way)

    Hey Ed!

    Thanks! I bought a Martin D 10 Sapele(mahogany) acoustic guitar last year and have been moving the mic around to see where it records the best and I tried a different placement on this track and am happier with the sound. Plus the guitar is starting to warm up a bit more, starting to age a bit, getting it's individual tone. It was a bit mid-rangy when I first got it, gonna age nicely I think. Always loved the sound of those old Martin dark mahogany guitars.

    Take care buddy!

    I've been working on gain staging lately, getting the individual track to a proper volume basically. It's been making a positive difference.

    Keep safe!

    You can only hop onboard if you have your covid card showing you've had your shots and all aboard need to keep at least 1 boxcar separation, he.

    I wanted to keep it simple and clean, to me the best songs are the simplest ones.

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 : 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 was told to do a better description this time. Blast you, Dr. Evil! You know descriptions are my one weakness!

I just couldn't get this one to sound right but Micky added accompaniment that sounds great. All music is by him. This song is the 1st modernized song I know of using Mohegan language.

Translations are in the lyrics.

Please do let us know what you think about it, and if you are now afraid of zombie children in meadows.

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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : The story of "Heer & Ranjha" is kind of an Indian version of "Romeo & Juliet" ....

while listening to this song try to imagine the scenario where "Heer" (Juliet) is dying next to "Ranjha" (Romeo)
