Description : A lighthearted look at the space shuttle, Richard Feynman, american oligarchs and the Jetsons. Acoustic, electric and bass guitar, drums, singing a couple effects and a title of a lecture on youtube to watch Richard Feynman talk about Los Alamos while building the first atomic bomb, funny stuff.

No but close, Epiphone Riviera, semi hollow body with 3 P90 pickups rather than 2 humbuckers. Gibson ES styled body though.

Thanks Steve!

Your sound always make me feel like I'm in a bar that has live music. I can almost see you and a band on stage. The only thing missing is the audience sounds.

Great track. Faved..

PEACE...

Thanks Mr. Jynxz!

I stopped playing out live more than 15 years ago. Playing in a band, going to see bands and band practice hones your ears to hear music a certain way. With me it's that live sound. So it's how I make my music sound.

Plus I don't try to make everything perfectly in time or perfectly played, my songs contain all it's imperfections, my lack of skill on the instruments, me breathing, my chair squeaking, the A/C turning on...lol. Hope those pass as audience sounds.

Cheers!

I just wanna say that this was great fun listening to. And I don't regard it as a little silly one but more like some music from the heart to the hearts. Not so many are capable of doing this today. It would take a lot of effort for me to pull off songs like you do, so I'm grateful for sharing that with us.

Cheers,

I really admire the singer/songwriter style of music, especially when it comes to folk music. This is basically a folk song produced to be a rock song. It's about selling the story in the song to the listener and it is hard to do. Townes Van Zandt songs can make you depressed, sad, anguished.

It's why I write so much and so fast. I'm prolific when it comes to ideas and with practice you eventually get better at songwriting, lyrics and mixing.

Honestly, I'd have a hard time making songs like you and others do and can also appreciate how you guys make your songs.

Thanks Micky, be safe!

Brilliant Wayne!

The mood is outstanding as the live sounded music ... very positive, funny piece ... I thought I'm listening some Status Quo remake from the 70's, when I heard the first leadish notes from the guitar ...
hats off, Danke

I had heard of Status Quo but didn't know anything about them so I checked some of their music out. Hippy music with strong guitars, fun stuff!

You spin a great yarn Wayne. And I gotta say I always love the production on your music, everything is right there crystal clear. And as always your wry humour.

"spin a great yarn", ha, that's great! Been trying to get the lyrics better, better told stories. Lately my focus has been gain staging as far as mixing, watching a lot of yt vids and trying things that suit my sound, things are getting better.

Appreciate the kind words!

You had me at Richard Feynman. Smart people making smart, funny music. I wish this would be a top hit and make you a pile of money. I wish that were the society that we lived in. Alas, it is not. So good luck with your wicked sense of humor and wild intelligence, which I, at least, appreciate.

theHumps replied 17th Apr 2022 - 2 years ago
Feynman is awesome! I've watched every single one of his vids, more than once. His lectures are the best, so entertaining, insightful and humorous.

I just write songs for me to like, if others do than that's a bonus. Sometimes they are a little silly like this one, sometimes more political or maybe a folky, sappy love song.

No, probably won't be a big hit, maybe 5 or 6 comments and a few likes, lol.

Cheers!

Love the track, the guitar on the intro is on point. Lyrics were very creative and laid back. Los Alamos, was an answer in jeopardy just yesterday. Definitely an enjoyable track.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).
