Title: Musical Ellgabers | Post Your Stuff
Post by: KSM on January 03, 2019, 11:45:00 PM
There must be others. Guitar players, singers, even horn blowers. I'm a sucker for the sound of a piano. Whatever it is let's hear you.

Here's "I Found You" by The Christal River Band from 1985.  I played trombone and bass trombone and wrote the horn parts. (And BTW, I had to reduce the mp3 quality from the Heater standard 192k in order to make the size limitations of this site. Get things up to standards around here @Bart Ell).

I rather enjoyed that, Juan. Thanks!


I had no idea Bart checked the mp3 box thus allowing for such files. This is a good thing.

I will take it down to 64k and you will like it!

Love that ripping solo section where everyone seems to be on fire and then right back into the vanilla chorus.
I get it, I get it.

A friend of mine wanted to set up a cheap demo studio.
He had the computer and a few good mics so I told him he could probably get the rest for under $200.

I got him an Audigy Platinum 2 ZS Platinum Pro for $25
A midi usb keyboard for $60
M-Audio AV32 monitors for $75
Rock band drums (you read that right) $10 at Goodwill.

Boom! $170 and he was ready to roll.

Installed the free version of Cubase and a few of the better VSTs and he was ready to record.
Forget expensive electronic drums, the USB version of the Rock Band drums are perfectly fine triggers... plus you can find them everywhere for a few bucks.

I recorded this using his fancy new studio to show him what can be done with minimal effort.
Every few months I like to see if I can remember songs I spent way too much time learning as a kid.
Here I tried to fake my way through Summer Song after not hearing it in probably a decade.

Here’s an even older one - recorded in 1970, released in 1971. “Smiling Faces” by Coldwater Army. It was a time of very mixed musical tastes - BS&T/Chicago, Three Dog Night, some vestiges of the California sound, and the beginnings of what would be Southern rock. There’s a bit of it all in this song. I played trombone on this record. Recorded in glorious 8-track with analog reverb (a concrete block room.)

With the recent collaboration between @Aquarius and @Bart Ell, we need to get this thread going again. Surely you are making music out there.
I'll kick it off again. I'm playing tenor trombone on this one. It's from 2013 recorded live at a rehearsal on a Zoom, so don't expect studio quality balance. It's the Top Shelf Orchestra featuring Steve Scarborough singing one of George Noory's favorite songs.

Good stuff, real musicianship and the George Noory connection - No coincidences!  Hold it... Eh, nevermind.

Those little Zooms are nifty little tools. I've recorded youth symphony orchestra performances using two and three of them.  I liked the results.

I keep finding them. This was recorded in May, 1968 at Project 70 Studios, then in Athens, Georgia. Recorded in two track mono - band on one track and singers on the other. It’s The Fabulous Bluenotes playing and The Three Heads Singing. As was usual then, I played trombone.

I have four Les Paul's.
I decided to lay down drums n bass. (I do not claim to be a drummer, I have my studio kit that I can play) sort of.

With all four guitars I played the identical riff through a 30 watt Marshall combo I've had since 1991. Bought it at Ward Music, Victoria BC. Fort St. They were very nice to let a teenage asshole rent to own. Never missed a payment.

First guitar; Les Paul Deluxe - Tobacco burst - soap bar pickups - 1980  Name (KING HENRY) Huge history with that guy, the guitar that is.

Second; 56 Les Paul Gold-Top re-issue 2007 Gibson  Name (That Christmas gift from my wife 2007) or (Goldie)

Third; Les Paul Special 2002 Name (Woodsville)

Fourth; Les Paul Standard - Honey Burst - 1985 I believe - Thing is very heavy!   Name (Ron Baxter)

That is a great song, @KSM!

Agreed.  I will blast this as I drive through the streets of Pittsburgh and it will attract the ladies.  "Hey, who are you listening to?"  Then I imply that I know the guy @KSM who sings and plays guitar.  Cha Ching!  ShayP is getting phone numbers.  :D

One can dream.   :'( ;)

Found one in my archives that was recorded in 2000. I wrote it in 97 about what is now referred to as Social Media.  Band was called White Knuckle Ride

I do not remember what the joke behind the YEAH! at the beginning and end of the song is about but is but it's there and I cannot undo it and that makes me cringe, but I like the song itself. I sang and played guitar in that band.

Oooooh .... YEAH!  Very Awesome @KSM  my kind of music. Makes me talk in single syllables and do the hard rock head nod. Moar!

@juan  The lead guitar starts shortly after 1:50  Moments of almost going into a 'shred' but then.. not shredding. A more laid back approach. I may redo it as I am unhappy with the climb that leads it out back to the main riff.

NOTE: In our defense - soundcloud completely degradates
the track/music/song that one uploads. What the listener hears is far from the actual quality of the real recording. That said I have a free account there so perhaps that has something to do with it. They have a "pro" option that I suspect preserves the quality of an artists upload.

I liked that one.  Interesting lead. Good enough, but you could probably do a little better.

Song reminds me of Slave To The Grind era Skid Row... which is a good thing to me.

You could upload to YouTube using a static image and get more than double the quality of Soundcloud.

I do not yet know how to do that.  Good point though.

I genuinely like the music @KSM puts out.  I'm not kissing ass either.  To me it's good old 'drive around town in the summer' type tunes.  Rock!  I'll blast it.  The Yinzers will love it.

I request a CD and I am willing to pay actual money for one.  Actual money.

I'm hoping Mary is at the deli counter.  She's my favorite.  Only she can make a hairnet sexy.  When I order a pound of chipped ham, I put the emphasis on pound.

@KSM  Yinzer is a term playing on the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania second-person plural vernacular "yinz." (Similar to saying y'all, or you guys, etc.) The word is used among people who identify themselves with the city of Pittsburgh and its traditions.  So if you and the wife were here you'd hear someone say "Hey, what a yinz doin' later?"  Or "Oh, yinz are from Canada?"

Yep, same email.

Attention @juan .
In an earlier conversation we discussed the vanilla likings of ad agencies.
I was asked to demo a version of Shapes of Things for a beer ad.
They wanted it to sound big.
I did the demo and got their notes.
This stuck out - "drums too big"


Here are the drums and millions of notes because I know you loves 'em!

Damn, @Bart Ell - those drums might stir the passions of innocent consumers. 
Today I saw a commercial using a cover of an old rock song (I forget which now) - the original had a few flatted notes in the melody. The cover did not use them.  It was sickenly sweet.

Oh, yeah.  You Don’t Own Me.  Not nearly as good as this one.

@Bart Ell "Drums too big" Is that the version they heard? Sounds like a normal mix to me. It's a rock piece WTF!  Although it is a little odd that they would get a guy who doesn't drink to do a beer ad.. Did they offer to send you any?

That's the issue - if you think it is a normal rock mix then they think it is the devil in the form of audio. They also demand everything be on the grid. The pay is still great though.

They don't send beer anymore.
They give me a log-in to their corporate site and I can choose tickets to events they sponsor. I usually get tickets to see the Canadiens play in Buffalo.

For house guests?
Gave to friends?
