I think what helps a lot to have a drum track to play to when you're playing by yourself. It's so easy to get out of time just playing alone. Drum programs for the computer are pretty inexpensive and easy to use. It's good training, too.

My daughter recorded me going over the 2nd lead track for the new tune I just put up, "Grab the Sky".   This is all from the demo sessions, before the entire song had been written yet.

Dude, you're sick on the guitar. Thanks for sharing your video.

Hey, don't like my opinions? I can respect that. Just realize guns allow you to have that opinion without being labeled as mentally insane for questioning the state.

Unfortunately, I sold my 70's Gibson SG, Parker Fly and Japanese Strat a few years back when times were tough, so I have nothing to contribute. But this thread looks like a lot of fun, nice playing everyone!

Gibson SG's are so fun to play, man. Although a lot of people believe it's purely for distorted rock, artists like Carlos Santana and Derek Trucks make it sing.

I made this for all of the bass players out there, so they can pretend that people think about them.

I'd like to see videos and audio from UM members playing instruments, or if they have bands and or musical projects they have done. It doesn't necessarily have to be your own song; mine in this post isn't. Share your playing/singing/etc!

I think it would be cool, given the technology and times, to create a recording band from members each contributing their part to the song, playing alone wherever they live. Then they could share their recording with the other band members wherever they live, who could add their part to it, and build the song that way. The recording studio would be the size of the Earth. Maybe someday I'll do this with other people. Maybe I'll find some people here who would want to do it! That's all it would take really, as long as each person had the fitting setup to do it (which basically is only a computer, these days)

But mainly this thread is just to share your music with people here. Here's a video of me playing some drums. I look forward to seeing other members' things.



Have you ever listened to Vildjharta?  THis is EXACTLY how they got started and how more than a few of their first songs were recorded.  it was only much later that they came together physically as a band.  Amazing music.  Very complex.  And for having what, 7 members - they are very tight.

I have a song that I recorded several years ago, it's drums, bass and vocals. It's like a '50's style rock and roll song. I wonder if anyone would be interested in putting a guitar track to it? Thing is, how do I attach the MP3 file here so someone could copy it?

You can search for a free mp3 upload' site, upload it, and just put the link on here. You should, so someone will put something to it, and we can hear it.

I missed this response so sorry this is late!

Thanks for the compliment.  In actuality, I'm probably about average on guitar.  I have tons of friends that can play circles around me.  But that's okay!  It keeps me grounded and those guys and gals are always there to learn from!

Just posted another tune up, entitled "Drive" on my reverb page.

The link is in my sig if you'd like to hear it!  Free download as well.

Had an absolute blast writing and recording this one.  I ran the bass guitar higher in the mix on purpose.  I wanted to make it stand out more than I normally do.  And that bass track was so much fun to noodle around on.  I spent half a day just jamming to the guitar riff with it after I'd already had the track laid down.

At 2:27 the guitar "solo" of the song kicks in and it's my own little tip-of-the-cap to Neal Schon...who was and still is a huge influence on my guitar playing.
