    Not being a religious person I find religious lyrics to be strange enough.

  5. Silent Night

    Very nice, Keith. "The words are a little weird." Brings to mind the alternate lyrics we used for lots of Christmas carols as a kid. For example, We three kings of orient are, tried to smoke a rubber cigar, it was loaded and it exploded... etc. There was a really nasty one for the little drummer boy which I won't repeat here. Except that the last line of the chorus was "rum-tum-tum, on his bum" ;-)
  6. A tribute to the late George Michael

    Mark, I really like you style of playing. Mike
  7. Improvisation can touch every part of playing

    Thank you! I think so too. It's interesting how differently one can play with same amount of skills and knowledge but in different state of mind and etc. This tells me that robots will not replace us as a musicians.

    A true poet. Pleased to have assisted

    Welcome chrisxr2
  10. Improvisation can touch every part of playing

    Awesome sound, it really is a piece of art. For me, improvizing means to create music on the go and in sync with your current emotional state.
  11. Two questions on tabs

    I always play with a flatpick. I use what is called hybrid style.

    Thanks. I can't hear so emotion is all that's left.

  15. Hi from east midlands UK

    Hello all, I am from the east midlands in the UK, been playing a few months and making progress but its like wading through treacle thought i would seek advice from some other relative beginners.
  16. A little guitar boogie

    Hi Carol Thank you for your kind comment. How's it going down south these days. Of course, I'm north of you.
  17. A little guitar boogie

    Thanks Mike. I really got a good Gibson Les Paul. Very happy with it.
  18. Silent Night

    From the first note being played, it sounds like "rockerbob". Such emotions go into your playing.

    Sorry about being a bit late but this should answer your questions. What is a VST plug-in? VST stands for Virtual Studio Technology. There are three types of VST plug-ins: VST instruments: These plug-ins generate audio and are either virtual synthesizers or samplers. Many VST instruments emulate the appearance and sound of famous hardware synthesizers. Popular VSP instruments include Massive, FM8, Absynth, Sylenth 1, Reaktor, Gladiator, Vanguard, and Omnisphere. VST effects: Effects process audio instead of generating it. VST effects function like hardware audio processors, like reverbs and phasers. VST MIDI effects: MIDI plug-ins process MIDI messages and send MIDI data to other VST instruments and hardware. VST Plug-ins VST plug-ins can be used within a digital audio workstation, in programs like Pro Tools and Logic. They’re frequently used to emulate hardware outboard gear such as compressors, expanders, equalizers, and maximizers. You'll frequently find these distributed to emulate certain models of hardware; there's some for vintage compressors, and you'll frequently find effects that emulate vintage hardware (both in instrument and stompbox-like effects). Think of VST plug-ins as really affordable ways to make your home studio sound like a really expensive commercial operation. VSTi Plug-ins Aside from VST plug-ins, you'll also find VST-instrument or VSTi plug-ins. These can emulate really cool, but expensive, hardware (like Hammond B3 and Nord Electro). The quality of these VSTi plug-ins can vary from acceptable to really poor; it all depends on the quality of your system resources (RAM and scratch space on your hard drive, for example), and how well-sampled the instrument is. You also want to make sure that your VSTi plug-in offers true polyphonic content, meaning you can make life-like chords that don’t sound too artificial. Quality There are thousands of plug-ins available. Some only take a few hours to produce and are free, but the quality is terrible. Some are made by huge companies and sound amazing, but are expensive. VST plug-in developers try to recreate the sound as closely as possible, but the original instrument is probably always going to sound better that the plug-in. You might be trying to get the rich, full-bodied sound of an organ, for example, but who owns an organ? No one has access to every type of instrument, so a plug-in will have to do. The good news is that VST plug-in technology is improving, so quality can only get better with time. VST Plug-in Standard Created by Steinberg, a German musical software, and equipment company, the VST plug-in standard is the audio plug-in standard that allows third party developers to make VST plug-ins. Users can download VST plug-ins on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. The vast majority of VST plug-ins are available on Windows. Apple’s Audio Units are standard on Mac OS X (it’s actually considered a competing technology), and Linux lacks commercial popularity, therefore few developers create VST plug-ins for the operating system. Where to Find VST Plug-ins There are thousands of VST plug-ins available, both commercially and as freeware. The Internet is flooded with free VST plug-ins. Home Music Production and Bedroom Producers Blog have robust lists of VST plug-in recommendations, and Splice and Plugin Boutique also offer a ton of free plug-ins.
  20. What year is it?

    Were you over on the Beer For Beginners & Beyond forum?
  21. What year is it?

    I don't see a signature option, used to be one but it seems to have vanished, maybe because it was abused? Can you paraphrase the current year debacle?
