I’m trying to get some scratch demos recorded that are decent enough to share with friends. Trial and error have now proven that the best microphone I own is in my cell phone. I should buy a better one for this purpose—maybe with birthday money or something. My singing voice is at least as big an obstacle though.
Anyway here’s one attempt. I wrote the bulk of these lyrics back in November, and paired them with the bluesy chord progression just a few weeks ago.
Feedback welcome. There’s a lot of room for improvement, but you can at least hear the gist.
I like it a lot! And your singing voice is fine, reminds me of Phil Ochs a bit.
Not too shabby, bud. Good job!
Heh, thanks Kay. I’ve scrapped a lot of takes though. I do hope I’m improving.
Thanks Frank! It’s all a work in progress, but I’m enjoying the process.
Okay, so the LJ Android app fails to nest my replies under the appropriate comments. Duly noted!
I just found this apparently, but I like it. MOAR.
Thanks Bib! I would have more by now but I’ve been trying to improve my recording setup at home, with no luck so far. I’m about to say screw it and go back to the phone recording for now.
