  1. Howdy guitar players. I haven't been around much the past few years. My hearing loss put everything on hold for a while. I cannot hear pitch correctly anymore so this might be my last song with vocals. More and more I need AutoTune, and that makes vocals sound very processed and weird. I think my latest attempt at vocals might also suffer from being a bad song. That song will end up abandoned due to bad writing. Also, I'm always a bit dizzy, or more than a bit. Listening to music is a chore as I need separate outputs through an EQ and headphones amp. I am selling all my live performance gear, and perhaps another guitar or two. I'll keep a guitar or two and play a little everyday until that is no longer possible. I might be able to record instrumental music a while longer. The attached song is the last song written for Lewis & Walker X, and perhaps my last vocals on any recording. I got to play my chromatic harmonica. I love playing that thing. So, here is a recent, auto-tuned and heavily edited song" https://youtu.be/DAy_wesbrI0
  2. We are still tweaking the masters, but here's a tune from the soon to be Lewis & Walker 11. Working title for the project is "Shut Up And Sing!" Its all instrumentals. All the red tracks are drums. The green track is guitar and the blue track is bass. The 2 far right channels are a reverb on a buss and a master track. Minimal arrangement. I used a pedal board to change tones on the fly, something I don't have to do in the studio. We jam to the basic structure a couple time, then start recording. For this project, the structure is based on either a guitar lick or a bass lick. We record several takes and pick the one we like best. I guess it is a loosely, quickly "arranged by jamming" and hoping we get a take we like. Its fun playing together. So much of studio work can be done in remote locations, jamming with a live person has decreased. Its loss I'm glad we tried to avoid in these recent recordings. I like this recording because I like the movement of it. The bass plays more notes than I do on guitar. :-) I hope its worth your 2 and a half minutes. Thanks! BigBird mix13.mp3
  3. Which amp should I buy?

    I have 350€ and i want to buy an amp for home practising. I've done a little research and I've found some amps: Blackstar id 30tvp, marshall mg30cf, vox vt 20x, fender mustang 2 and peavy vypyr 2. I want my amp to have good distortion and a good clean channel. Which one should i buy? Can you propose me a better amp for the money?
  4. Hello guys, I want to ask one (maybe stupid) question. I'm playing a lot of heavy metal and genres like this but lately I have been improvising some jazz over backing tracks. I'm wondering what scale should I play over some chords. For example one backing track was in E. The rhythm played E7 chord I played E pentatonic scale (don't know if it fits the chord) and then the rhythm changed to A7 and I was still playing E pentatonic major but it sounded out of key and I than started to play E major scale. Should I change to A major scale or I will go out of key? So what scale to choose over what chords - for example the progression is C7 - Dm7. Should I play only C major over both of the chords or should I change the scale ?? :/ Thanks in advance!

  8. Greetings. I have a new instrumental and video. The instrumental is a standard 1-4-5 blues progression. I used Wah Wah - which I seldom do - for something a little different and fun. The video is over a small patch of Open Space containing Tollgate Creek. I stopped before crossing Quincy Blvd, but the creek goes under the road and continues to Quincy Reservoir. I never knew there was actually water flowing in this tiny creek. Also featured is the silliness that is "Lewis & Walker." The video is just to give listeners something to look at while listening on YouTube. Its mostly a small patch of of a large stretch of wild in the suburbs. Even though surrounded by "civilization," there are, at times, coyotes in this area, and well as rabbits, squirrels, snakes, and most of what is natural for this climate. The Open Space runs for many miles. This is a tiny piece. It's all fairly simple and easy to play, but big fun. We are mostly doing a trio type CD, with one guitar, one bass, and one drummer, but I allowed myself an extra track for the rhythm guitar. I like the movement in the rhythm and didn't want it to go away when I started playing lead, which is the case for most of the recordings on the new, almost finished project. The resolution of the video goes up to 4K on Youtube if you have a 4K monitor, but the 1080p version looks fine. Thanks for listening (and watching). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zRi3XCCchI
  9. I haven't posted anything is a while, so here is one from a few years back.
  10. Hello there! I'm an absolute beginner - I got my first guitar, a Rogue RA-090 Concert Acoustic-Electric, yesterday, and am so looking forward to learning more about this wonderful world of guitar music. I have a problem though; yesterday night, I tuned my guitar, learned a couple chords and practiced. Everything worked perfectly fine and I was having a great time. Today I decided to pick it up again despite the finger pain, and learned the D Major chord. I had my fingers in the right place, and when I played the chord, I noticed a loud buzz. I figured out after playing the strings individually that the buzz was coming from the B string on the 3rd fret of the guitar. I tried to fix it by changing the positioning of my fingers around and pressing harder/lighter, but nothing got rid of the buzz. I then tried to play every other string on the 3rd fret, and the same problem occurred - every string that I played on the 3rd fret of the guitar had a loud, noticeable buzz with it. I tried changing the positioning and pressure again, and nothing worked. I proceeded to then test every other fret on the guitar and they all worked beautifully, it's just that the 3rd fret has a horrible buzz whenever I play it. Is there any way to get rid of the buzz? Should I go to my local guitar store and talk to the repair specialist there? Is it possible to fix it myself? Thank you so much for reading; as a beginner, I appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks! -Kynnaryth, a beginner
