I am a music collector of 45 rpm records, LP's and Cassettes. I converted them all to mp3. In 2009 or 2008 I bought Sony Acid Music Studio 7. I eventually bought many Sony Loop CD's, downloaded a pile of Looperman loops and proceeded to make songs. The first one to get me noticed was Milking Camels in the Moonlight.
none unless you count making a note on a harmonica.
Music Studio 7 and Easy CD Creator. I started out with Easy CD and some other minor obscure CD burning software.
A $20 headset and Juno email. I now have a $1,200 Dell PC, a $100 Yeti Blue mic, a $45 headset(after using up several $20-$40 heatsets)and although many people have tried to get me to play some instrument and get some REAL mixing and producing software, I have resisted.
Jamid, JOYfulwave, Mack Sanders, Paul Sylvain, hooyoosay, Lyrical Princess, Without a Flag, Planetjazzbass, Mike Kohlgraf, Tommie Brewster and BobbyG01CR, as well as numerous others.
Annie Lennox, Bonny Raitt, Clarence "Frogman" Henry, Elvis, Everly Bros,Patsy Cline Hank Williams Jr and many others too numerous to mention.
Wayne "The Humps," Spivkurl, Michael Stokes, DextDee,Kara/Reeker and many more artists here, at SoundCloud, Mixposure and other places on the net.
I've heard it compared to Zappo, Squidbillys and few others but my music is unique because everybody it seems can listen to one of my tracks and within a few notes they know it is one of mine. They are amazed and wonder what I'm high on when I come up with titles and lyrics and unusual blending of genres.
I don't have much of a life any more. All of my friends live in this glowing monitor. I used to fish, I still make and fly kites. play '42' dominoes, hearts and have a closet full of parlor games. Many of my favorites, like Balderdash, my family groans and refuse to play.
