    There are some "productions" here. Two stand-outs in particular in that regard. Hoddy and Chris... Hoddy, the full band is fluid. That is a good studio mix. Chris, your sliding lyrics are pretty cool. Nice collaborative effort.


    Opa John, nice ballad. I love songs that are stories.
     BTW... Music & Arts still had that Hummingbird Epi on the wall when I was in there on Saturday picking up guitar strings.

    I hope no one minds -is there two VOM's runing ?

    Iposted this over on MV then found on here :catfrustrated:

    Spoiler
     

    nothin fresh to offer but I'd like to contribute something - so -
    I recorded this last year to let people hear a picking technique I use and was trying (badly) to describe - a sound clip is worth a thousand words kinda thing.
    The tune is a Scottish pipe tune <img src=" title="Laughing" src="http://village.melodyvine.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif" />

    I have not posted anything for VOM in a long time. But, I am putting together a few tunes for "singles" gigs-- just me and an acoustic/electric guitar for promotional purposes when I play by myself.


    The guitar is the new Eastman HE122CE and the recording was made as follows:


    Mixer Behringer UB1202 with CAD M177 mic and SM57 (pointed at the guitar). The guitar is plugged into the UB1202 (vocals panned full-left, guitar panned full right). The L-R channel outs are fed into a Tascam DP-008 digital multi-tracker.


    I used Mixcraft (w/MasterLimiter and a little reverb rather than using the reverb from the DP-008). I created the MP3 files with Mixcraft.

    The first song is "Typical Day" (written in 1992 - this song appeared on an album I did that year. It was used in the sound-track of the LaFemme Nikita TV show in Europe.

    The second song is "Is Anybody Going My Way?" and is a true story. This actually happened while I was driving on I-80 across Pennsylvania from the Poconos to Columbus, Ohio.

    ...hoddy, that is some country with 70s soul...before nasville completely transformed it into what we have now...no soul, no cattle, no Western...puke....this is more like it in melody, lyrics, and soul... Sam Houston is ashamed of his native Tennessee for what they'be done to country music...thank the Lord for bluegrass and Texas...thanks hoddy..

    ...carnucci, the whole production is outstanding, the video along with the tune, rolling the lyrics.  the strings in the song really make this one float...vocals very well done and the lines are finished.  great collaboration/recording.  the other players are right on.  amazing what you can do these days.  nothing can hold the creative output back any more.  nvever a more liberated time for artists.  release/publish at the click of a mouse or touch of a screen.  the hucksters are getting shut out...keep it up...

    ...verne, nice and clean.  picked every note with precision and grace.  like the finish.  the zoom is the bees knees, the cats rat, the snakes rake, the flys pie...and on and on.  dug it.

    ...speaking of kerosene...townes' pancho and lefty...nice version opa john, never heard it like that..kicked it up and it popped along a bit quicker, especially the opening...like i'm sitting there listening to this thinking i'm in some sort of dusty texico bar, neon street lights making everything glow....lefty scrammed up north, not able to understand why survival seems worse than death.  no fame.  no glory.....enjoyed.

    ..alright..hold on a minute!  call the coast guard, rally the horses, stock the bunkers, grab the kerosene lamps, i think some sort of technical malfuntion lost my reply to mr martin's tune, so i repeat via another method as i listen to the excellent dylan cover from garthman.  twice, just to make sure i get the full effect.  (a rule of thumb that should be encouraged here at vom.)  you got the song just bleeding, or crying, from your lungs garthman.  great picking too.  in and out of happiness, ain't it true.  finding the middle way.....mr martin, your tune was incredibly done.  the ending is just down right cool.  the shakers draw you back in teh song and ''a mountain of moments, a river of days" is forever blazed in my mind...great line, and with a hook...ok, i'm gonna hit <post> and see where this goes...

    Well it's been 8 months since I last recorded anything, but here is my latest creation.   I colaborated with two great guys on Kompoz.com, Nigel Robinson from Scotland on drums and Danny Milligan from New Mexico on lead guitar. 

    I am learning alot about home recording, and there is so much more to learn!  This is a great time to be making music at home....there are so many cheap or free tools.  Love to hear any feedback as always, and I look forward to hearing everyones submissions. 

    If you haven't figured it out yet I used to post on here as Chriscarnucci

    Had to use a different signin as HC doesnt seem to know my old name anymore....oh well.

    Here's mine for May (trying out Soundcloud after a few years of using Box.net, which has been giving me trouble recently).

    https://soundcloud.com/mdmartin/let-me-count-the-ways

    I wrote this song for (and in appreciation of) my friend Zhe Ying, who is Chinese/Malaysian (hence the geographical imagery). Just one of those people you meet by chance and it feels like you have been connected for ages, and you know you will be friends for all time.

    Some of you might recognize a few familiar phrases in the lyrics
