    Rock of Ages

    So i bought a harmonium recently and wanted to record it so came up with this tune. I recorded a bunch of loops and spent most of my time arranging the loops into a song like structure. Wrote some lyrics and reluctantly sang it. I slapped the ending jam on last minute just to get out of the one...

    So Real

    Here's a weird little song a singer friend and I collaborated on. Just made this mix today, it would be nice to get some fresh clinic ears as i've made so many mixes of this song i've lost perspective. Using studio one, addictive drums, guitars recorded with an hx stomp and bass using a sans amp...

    Buckethead Cover

    A lady friend of mine sent me the song by buckethead "sketches of Spain" and said "record this for me". Of course i accepted the challenge! Luckily it was one of the few buckethead songs i have the skills to play. I took a long time with this, i had it recorded then got a new rode nt2 and...

    Lets let it go

    Greetings, here's a mix of a song that's a collaboration between me and my brother, i sent him the music and he wrote the lyrics. The mix sounds pretty good to me, i'm not getting the power i want, but turning up my stereo seems to take care of that. I laid down vocals in the hopes that one of...

    Words in a Box

    Here's another collaboration effort, just finished yesterday. A very simple tune using nylon string guitar and some string sounds from the ik multimedia miroslav collection. The lyrics were half written by a girl i met playing games online, we became good buddies over a period and she gave me...

    Sun sets on the Sea

    Greetings all. Been working on this song for the last two weeks or so, i haven't been happy with my vocals or the mix in general. Today i went and laid down a few vocal tracks, and did a quick mix and i think it's sounding pretty good, let me know what you think could be improved. My first...

    Down

    After a long wait of two years i finally got my singer/collaborator friend to come over and record. The music track was recorded a few months ago, housemate did a nice job on drums which were recorded simultaneously with the bass to try and get a live groove. This is rough mix number 2, there's...

    Syd Barret Octopus

    With so many projects and collaborations unfinished i decided to do something irrational and record a cover. I always found this song fascinating, a strange arrangement and even stranger lyrics. Recorded quickly and simply, addictive drums played on my yamaha midi kit, guitars recorded using my...

    Prog Rock

    Greetings-I posted this as an instrumental some time back and recently added vocals. I still hear a few things that need attention and the vocals in general are kind of meh, but i think the basic balance is good. Let me know how it sounds to you, thanks for your time! Lyrics the motion leads...

    instrumental thing

    Recorded this over the last 2 weeks. I got out the autoharp and and came up with this little tune. I've been struggling to get it sounding right, i've totally scrapped twice and started over with different tempo, guitar tones, arrangement etc. Still not sure if it's working, as of now it's an...

    Valentines video

    Every Valentines day for the last 5-6 years I've recorded a song/video to share with friends on facebook. This year i chose the Brian Jonestown Massacre song "if love is the drug i want to od". Video was shot with my panasonic lumix camera. The guitar and voice were recorded as one take to a...

    Love and War

    This is an old song-i probably posted it on these boards over 10 years ago. I'm trying to get my singer buddy to come over-he lives about 30 minutes away and has family, traveling job, (a real life)...So he requested i record this for when he finally does make it over someday (likely never). I...

    bipolargressive

    Hello and happy holidays fellow recorders. I've been trying to mix this over the last few days and i'm going backwards. Here is a basically raw mix, very little eq, the drums are on a bus and through trash2 for a little volume and grit. The problem i'm having is to get a healthy volume without...

    Lack of Light

    I've been recording this song all week and just started making mixes today, already i'm starting to ^#$%^ up what was sounding good during recording. So maybe some outside ears would be helpful. I am reluctantly singing again which is one obvious problem but besides the pitchiness do the vocals...

    Folk Song

    So this is a short little folk song idea i've had for a while, and finally got to writing some lyrics and recording. It's very short and simple, acoustic and voice with a string part during the bridge. Recorded with an octava mc012 on guitar and a rode nt something on vocals, both through my ua...

    Orbit

    Greetings- Here's a little tune i threw together using some addictive drums loops. I made the video with windows movie maker using public domain clips. I wanted to tell the story of a space launch gone wrong, but i thought it was in bad taste so kept the video positive in nature. The music was...

    Green Maverick

    New Song thing-Just layed down the tracks and did a quick mix/master. Let me know if you find this sonically insulting. I'm going for a low-fi 70's kind of vibe for sure. Instead of real drums I played the midi kit into addictive drums using their dry kit. I could put real drums on this but i...

    Spanish Wings

    Recorded over the last 24 hours. Continuing from my last posted song, i had made contact with a guy i knew 30 years ago who writes lyrics-he gave me these lyrics to work on and the whole tune came together quickly, just finished guitars today. As far as the mix-i really didn't mix this, that is...

    Jude (not hey)

    Very long story long- My roomates girlfriend is binge watching a show called "Penny Dreadful", it has a theme song that reminds me of something i did long ago-1988. I was working with a guy at a supermarket who was a writer, he gave me some lyrics to see if i could make a song out of any of...

    Groovay

    Latest song/mix. I'm reluctantly singing again, though I got to admit this song actually had me laughing while doing the vocals so it was a good time. I came up with the music idea and sent it to a friend who writes lyrics. Housemate on drums. I think the recording/mix is pretty good, the...
