Description : Still trying to improve my mastering/mixing skills. With this one, I played with ukulele first and added tambourine later. Then the audacity file crapped out and I'm left with this with no way to edit. Fun times.

    hi i listened to this last week, something must of distracted me because i never commented. your voice is really sweet and sits side by side with the uke (love the sound of that instrument) i agree in principal with most what is said, you state your trying to improve your engineering and mastering skills aren't we all :)
    Manuela hits the nail on the head. if you make it studio or too studio it will take all away from the original and unique sound its almost live like raw and gritty. being a songwriter myself im impressed with your story telling, good content, well written lady.
    i have learnt most of what i do now practising and being daring, loads of help feedback and critique too from our colleagues here in featured.
    the second vocal doing a chorus would be good, maybe a male add a deeper accent or have a couple of lines repeated your voice just EQ different. just dont over engineer it as it will take away the charm spearcarrier. keep writing comics but keep writing songs too

    Hello, this is the first time I have the pleasure of hearing you! it's really a pleasure! The freshness that you convey with your singing, plus the live ukelele and the added tamborine are simply fun to listen to. I agree with Danke too. An additional supporting background voice, perhaps deviating in the third, in a few places would also be good for the song. But before you change anything, think about what you want to achieve. Do you want to leave this kind of unplugged character or the refreshing live character and move more into the studio world? If you don't want that, then I wish you would leave this song as it is now. Because he is good the way he is, apart from a few little things. Maybe, as already mentioned, a second voice in the background and maybe a few gentle reverb effects that broaden the song's sound a bit. If you want to move into studio production, then you have to structure the song completely differently.
    I definitely like the song a lot!
    Kind regards, Manuela

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I am interested in hearing more about moving into studio production for the sake of expanding my meager skills. When I re-record, I hope to also take the other suggestions. This will make the project fun!

    I've listened to your music before and enjoyed it, as I did this one. Too bad you can't really edit or play with this some more. But it is very good as it is. Natural and real and you spin a good tale. I'd agree with Danke in that some additional vocal would sound good and fill it out a little.

    Hey there! Long time no see!

    I'm pondering simply re-recording. I got a new microphone - a Scarlet Studio. I've been recording with Blue Yeti and this one was recorded with a Snowball. Now I have the Scarlett, although I feel like it makes my voice reedy and thin.

    You know that the first time I listen to it, I already have ideas about how I could expand on it. But as it is, it's a wonderful original ... an organic, natural song with a story... something I could never do. I wish I was blessed with poetic talent too... well, yeah, I'll have to live with just being a dance band musician. I love the sound of your voice and look forward to every opportunity to play with it... ;o)

    Okay, so when we get through the one I'm dying to see what you want to do with this one. I like it. It's fun to play. You always seem to make things better.

    Hey, a good vibe song! I love it. Easy to put this master into a decent DAW and finish it nicely. Cheers...

    I like the song very much, I don't mind the tambourine in it but it needs to be consistent. Second Vocal, hmmn, maybe listen to some old Ten thousand Maniacs for some references. I'll get back to yah! Well Done

    There is a 'chorus' part of the song ... you should get the background vocal on yourself, but in a different tone ...
    hope, I'm clear ... :-)
    Danke

    Heeeey!
    This one is really fun!!!
    Your voice and that ukulule play are fantastic but on my humble opinion, you should delete that tambourine ... instead of that you better use a second vocal (background) ...
    The song is too good and very uplifting which is rare nowadays ...
    thanx for the upload,
    greetings,
    Dank

    I'd have to re-record to edit.. but what kind of second vocal background?

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 : A short folk instrumental number with drums, bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, cello and harmonica. I would say this is more an interlude than a song, something to put between songs.
