Description : Basically iv been trying to learn a new style of playing on acoustic guitar..basically you play a chord and tap out a melody. I came up with this after a daft mess about with the style. Im nowhere near good at this style yet but i hope to get better!.
This track is me and my acoustic...and the birds from outside my room that wouldn't shush while i was recording...so decided to record them and stick them in the track to fill it out a bit.
let me know what you think!

    This is very cool, a bit like Antoine Dufour, and Andy McKee if you don't know who they are check them out on Youtube they are amazing and make me wish I never learned to play guitar because they are so good. I always wanted to play a tapping style but it is way out of my league. Great Job on this sounds very good, nice and relaxing.

    Reply by ChrisHall

    Hey! Ye iv heard of them both...they both bloody brilliant! You can play this style..its not very hard haha you just need a lil practice and you can do it..trust me :)

    Thanks for listening and the reviewwwwwww

    Hi Chris,

    So nice to hear acoustic guitar playing cleanly. I have a Mitchell one I bought last year.

    'Tapping' is what I call what your doing. Steve Vai and many other rock guitarist also do it. I have done some, but I am not good at it as it takes practice. However, it sounds like your on your way.

    The birds in the background weren't a distraction to me. Even added to the ambiance to it all I feel, if anything.

    I think you did a very nice job and hope you'll do more.

    Reply by ChrisHall

    Via is pretty cool..i prefer satriani over via though...via is too flashy haha

    Ye it is more or less just tapping while holding a chord...its pretty easy to be honest!

    Mitchell guitar woo iv seen a few of them...theyre pretty! i own a Takamine myself...i love it to bits! best acoustic iv ever played...i had to buy it haha

    Thank you for the review and thanks for listening randy!

    chrilsh, I have to first agree that your clean tone and the way you have worked on developing this chord-melody tapping makes this so enjoyable to listen to and even more so if one is also a guitarist...beautiful melody and textures, this is great work!
    thanks for sharing this man!

    victormusic01x...in the nyC...trying to get this voting stuff right

    Nice style, nice touch. This track has great atmosphere and a relaxing effect. Seems like a great deal better than just "messing around" to me. Good work!

    Reply by ChrisHall

    haha it was just messing about :p sometimes i get massive spurts of creativity..and the rest of the time i cant write crap haha :p
    But i am proud of this song....i like pretty sounding things haha

    Thanks for taking the time to listen

    I have attention deficit when it comes to music so it takes a lot to keep my interest. This definitely did with the variety and the changes that happen right when they are needed. It was relaxing and yet musically interesting at the same time. That is perfect. Put out more like this. I also like the bird background. I made me feel like you were tapping out a tune on the front porch on a summer day. Awesome. Kper

    Reply by ChrisHall

    haha thanks for the comment buddy. i do often go into the back garden and play guitar...usually try and draw something in from different surroundings...now and then it works :p
    Im glad it kept you interested and i will try and make more songs like this!

    Thanks for listening buddy

    This is the very first acoustic track that Im fav'ng. I mainly do hip hop and chill out but on occasion I'll stop and check out an Acoustic track ... Well, the peacefullness you acquired with this display is unmatched, for real. I really dont know what else to say about this other than the ambiance of the birds tying everything together, it worked nicely. I have a track that Im almost done with where I incorporated birds within a forest and after hearing this Im sticking with that. If I were you, run with this style as well as your others. Keep doin your thing.

    Reply by ChrisHall

    wow thanks for faving it buddy and thanks for giving it a listen! il have a listen to your track when its done..i dont really give hip hop a chance to be honest but im gonna have a dabble :p

    Even tho the birds were a nuisance to you. They add a really great ambiance to the composition. Beautiful acoustic playing! Liked the tapped harmonics and the reverb.

    Reply by ChrisHall

Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.

Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!

My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.

Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...

Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.

I got the acapella here: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/7656/marauder-feat-dikaiko-by-a1000times-132bpm-dance-acapella

Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!

Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)

Description : Written for Claudio's birthday (my Italian friend) in obvious waltz manner and with slight classical touch this tune appears to me almost painfully simple and minimalistic (and indeed it is)....and yet, Claudio who's very familiar with my music says that this is one of the nicest pieces of music I've ever written even if it wasn't his birthday present....well, who knows if he's right..:)^^
