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!

More notes doesn't always equal better - sounding like the old Rockerbob to me.

Something about having a guitar in my lap makes me feel younger.  I'm only 21 - with 40 years experience.

:smilinguitar:B) I like this - puts me in mind of Clapton and Blind Faith Jams and Peter Green End of the Road Jams :)

Thanks much.  I try not to compare to big star players.  That's an easy way to become  frustrated.  My main goal is to try to make it not suck.

How'do Rockerbob :)

 

I don't like to do the comparison thing...lol....although I done it on a couple of posts the other night :D ...  this has an Organic Jam session feel to it which is how I like my music ;) the Blind Faith and Peter Green jam sessions I referred to are in my top 10 listening material - this has that "In the Moment" feel I hear on these sessions :smilinguitar: I had to mention it.

This was very much "In The Moment."  I got digital drums programed, then Carl and I jammed over the drums.  We did 5 or 6 takes and chose the take we like best.  The whole CD is pretty much the same.  We jam over some drums and keep the takes we like.  Our goal was to sound like a three piece jam band.

B) I like your thinkin - I've been striving for this same feel myself :) the best Magic happens In the Moment - I miss Guitar, Bass and Drums all feeding each other in the moment and some of the Tones and Grooves that can be Generated :smilinguitar:

      As an old guy who is 50 years old, I finally decided on a hobby and it's the guitar.  
       
      I ordered the cheapest electric guitar beginner set on Amazon.
       
      If I stick with this consistently for 6 months, I will invest in good equipment.
       
      Well, it's been 9 months, I spend an hour each day; 5 days a week practicing guitar.
       
      Now, I'm in the process of upgrading to a semi-hollow or hollow body guitar.

      I admit that I'm an incredibly slow learner and youtube.com guitar lessons drive me nuts.
       
      I started a subscription to guitartricks.com and the introductory lessons are really slow;  to my liking.
       

      Since I have a million questions about equipment, I'll hold off because there are other areas to post those questions.
       
      But, I'd like to network with other beginner guitarists (less than 6 months experience) in the Washington D.C. metro area (Rockville, MD).
       
      If anybody can give advice on how to meet other beginner guitarists, then I welcome your advice.
       
      My girlfriend hates going to Guitar Center with me and doesn't practice her acoustic guitar so it would be nice to meet others with similar interests.
       
      Thanks in advance for your feedback.
       
      Wish me luck.

      Hello! I'm Trevor, I'm 19 and I've been involved in a lot of projects and jam sessions growing up with my friends. I've only focused on vocals for 4-5 years and I've kind of just gotten tired of it. I want to actually learn an instrument and a note system that I can directly understand and make use of for many types of genres not being restricted by a vocal range. 
       
      The situation right now is that I don't own a guitar with more than 3 strings and it will take a few weeks in order to get one and I had questions based on what I can start trying to learn now while I'm waiting to get my hands on a working guitar. As the years go by and I get more skilled, I'd like to focus mainly on Math Rock, similar to artists like CHON and Via Luna. I specify this because I love the emotion that can be given simply from instrumental music and it has a big factor in my self development. So here are my questions;
       
      1. Based on where I want to take my guitar playing, what type of guitar should I look to purchase, an acoustic, or electric?
       
      2. What topics should I look up and study before I obtain a working guitar, I have a 3 string acoustic that I can use as a reference for notes, etc.? Stuff that I can write down and study every day like music theory, but wanted to know if there is more than that.
       
      3. I am avoiding physical lessons, so when I have a guitar, who would you guys recommend for beginners wanting to pursue in more technical finger tapping riffs, or if I should start and learn the basics before branching off into that?
       
      Thank You! (:

      On December 9th Carl and I had a jam session and recorded it.  Carl plays bass, I play guitar, and a guest, Dismal Turgid, on drums.  We played it through a couple times and then picked our favorite.
       
      This is also my mix, without Carl helping.  I don't hear low frequencies well at all.  But, I gave it my best shot as a mix.  Its a fairly easy mix.  Just drums, bass, and guitar.
       
      Let me know what you think of my half deaf jamming and mixing.  Its different now that I can't hear well.
