Description : A heavy-ish Rock track that has four main sections, melodic moments, a few soloing attempts in the hopes of continually getting better, and a rather quiet frog. All real guitars and basses played by me, with SD2 behind the kit. An organ, strings and a celeste make appearances. All critiques and criticisms are welcome. Let me know what you think and how it could be made better. Nice to post something again.
Description : A darker, sad-ish intro section of electric and bass guitars, leading into an odd juxt of Celtic and Egyptian leads. A brief intermission of musicbox and guiro knocking before the heavy second half. The distorted guitar layers in this half took a long time with amp and cab sims to get mixed where it is now, along with some taken advice from a guy with VD. Any further advice is most welcome, along with any constructive or destructive criticism, critique or opinion.
Description : Just electric guitar, bass guitar, Superior Drummer, and time. A little bit of everything. Feedback, critiques and indignant rage are most welcome.
Description : First track using Superior Drummer, and a return back to the glorious bass guitar. We start off with acoustic pleasantries, and build to darker things. Frog guiro, darkish choir, legato strings, flute and a weebit of bit-crushed guitar make appearances. Let me know what you think of it. I'm open to thoughts, criticism and ideas.
Description : UPDATED 12-5-16. An acoustic intro, leading into melodic piano leads with strings and woodwinds. Many layers of programmed midi drums and percussion loops. Some heavier riffage with an odd time signature, leading into something completely different. First track I've done in standard-ish tuning in years. Been distracted by various things and haven't been working on this steady. Thoughts, complaints, critiques, ideas and interesting short stories are always welcome. You can also say you liked it. That's cool, too,.... so long as you ain't bullshittin.
Description : A deep, crystalline excursion, drenched in moments of delay and shameful pride. Electric, acoustic and bass guitars played by myself. An intro full of stretchery, with no loops being harmed or used in the making of this track. Three midi drum kits I ninety-percent programmed. (Used a few midi patterns and altered them.) Piano and a music box make an appearance, as well as a low, sustained synth played on my controller using keys and mod-wheel together. More emotive than heavy. Comments, critiques and general conversation are most welcome, as well as righteous indignation.
Description : Intro hits hard. Heavy guitars and lots of different parts. Guitar, bass, 3 MIDI kits, a few loops, and a stretched outro that brings everything back down at the end. No synths, samples or anything not played by my fingers. Lots of quad-tracking heavy rhythm guitars. Peaks and valleys throughout, with a middle section that is very swampy in atmosphere. Over-driven bass guitars and cymbal-bells sprinkled hither and yon. Could add more,... could move on. I'm pretty happy with this one. Had to upload at 192. I invite your honest opinion and critique.
Description : Intro is lap-steel guitar with a smooth stone pick, then the electric comes in. Used 5 different guitars in this one. Two basses, an electric, acoustic and lap-steel. Three programmed MIDI drum kits, a few drum loops, and a Zippo I've had for about 20 years. Had this one going for a while now. Life stuck it in and broke it off over the last two months. Plugged ears from a head cold, and a rather crazy flooding event kept this from receiving steady work-flow. My main bass guitar's electronics took a big shit on me as well, so the second half's bass guitar is my old P-bass that I really had to dress up. Anyway, enough excuses. Give this motherfucker a listen and share the love or hate. I like both equally.
Description : Real guitars and basses played by me. A short, yet tasty bit of MIDI piano and cello with about 7 programmed drum kits and a few drum loops. It's really a metric shit-ton of layered guitars and different textures. This track, sadly, is also a "Goodbye" to my little Acoustic 3/4 Fender Squier. I've been serving as a pawn-shop for my sister-in-law for about 4 years. Not a guitar you'd seek out, but it's been a friend and has been in most of my tracks. The bright side is, I will be replacing it with something better, and full sized. Acoustic guitar suggestions are as welcome as track comments!
Description : I recently acquired a lap-steel guitar, and this track is it's wobbly-legged introduction to the world. Intro is all lap-steel, with two later lap-steel leads. All real acoustic/electric/bass guitars. I recorded my new frog guiros as well. One in the intro as a woodblock, and both played traditionally later in a bridge. Drums are seven programmed MIDI kits and a loop or two. Chorus has the heaviest guitars I've done. Random percussion and echoing delays galore. Your honest opinion is appreciated, and gets you a coupon for 8 free deep-tissue nipple-rubs, and a full internal body waxing. Act fast!
Description : Real acoustic, electric and bass guitars played by me. Drums are loops and programmed MIDI. Played piano and synths. Lots of layers and delay. A gated moog, organ, my recorded finger-snaps and a reversed bass guitar effect that sounds like throat-singing. Three movements, divided by moments of calm. Thoughts and feedback are welcome.
Description : The Sounds Of A Sun Foundry. Thoughts are most welcome.
Description : Real bass guitar and electric guitar. Three Midi drum kits, with Taiko drum loops. Midi piano, double-bass, piccolo, violins and violas. All Midi instruments played by putting fingers to midi controller's keys, then polished with the ancient musical device called "The Mouse". Guitar and bass are minimal, and there is none in the first minute. It's all done with keys. Would love some feedback on this one. No idea on the genre. I saw no selection for "Exophagy Soundscape".
