I finally decided to post some of my music since everyone here does.

I tried to find the old thread where everyone posted their myspace, but I couldn't find it. So I thought I'd just post it here. These are all demos on my myspace for the most part, and the recording sounds like ***. I'm pretty fond of the solo I devised in my cover of wagon wheel. I've got to admit, that's probably the only moment my guitar playing abilities shine on these demos.

@ brodyxhollow,
Great voice, perfect for rock! you play very well, clean and in time.
Listening to wagon wheel right now. great job. vocals were a little "rough on "Not Now" but the playing was good. Hope you'll post more soon.

@soy: i wouldnt take your money. i didnt used to know how to sing. im just very critical of my voice, and am very aware of any flaws in my vocals. i record myself singing a lot, and constantly re-record myself if im not hitting the note im looking for, until i finally do. (though in some of these recordings like not now i just took the take cause i was feeling lazy and wanted something to put up.)

what helped me a lot is i would always sing one of my favorite songs (walk by blind melon) and that song has some really high notes. it took me a long time to hit those notes, but after months of singing the same song every day, at least a couple times a day, my vocal chords eased up enough to be able to pull it off.

im going to try and get to a recording studio sometime soon, and put up some of my more recent songs. i'll let you all know, thanks for the feedback though.

Brody, that's too much work. I think I'd rather devise some evil plan to steal your vocal chords! Seriously, incredible voicing. Your playing sounds good too, but I was blown away by the vocals (probably b/c I have no range myself).

Glad you decided to share and looking forward to hearing your studio sessions if you feel inclined to share those as well.

Good recordings and good songs. Keep it up man I can see great progress in this.

Don't worry about being critical about your work- as long as it's not too critical. It's natural for every musician to criticize one's work, and thankfully it helps us improve.

These songs are amazing! I'm glad you choose to play guitar and sing, you've made some incredible songs on there. I think Ampathy could be a great song, if you finish it I'm eager to hear it. And I don't care about what you said at the end of 'Not now'! As amusing as that part was, the recording was fantastic, your guitar and voice I thought were in perfect harmony. And I love 'Wagon wheel' I can just promise you it's going to be in my head all day.

Great work, I think I may be just a little jelous of it though.

Yeah, I'm liking this version, tighter, and a better tone. How many takes does it usually take for you to be satisfied with your recording?

Seems that we have bard here! :P

Nice folk stuff, I liked the way you kept all simple, but still very well played and dropped tricks here and there. Good job!

I think Not Now and Apathy early demo was my favorite. There you clearly tried something new aproach to your singing am I right? Especially Apathy start was astonishing.

Cheers!

@soy: i'm just running with a cheap mic until i upgrade, but ive heard great things about Shure mics.

@Jazz: i probably took two to three hundred takes in total of each the vocal, acoustic, and electric parts before i came up with anything i was satisfied with. im a perfectionist.

@Empirism: Apathy is a taste of the darker side of my music, so yeah I was trying something a little different. I like a mix of simple and complex music, I think that's what makes good music is knowing when to do each. That recording of Not Now was kind of an early version of the song I toyed around with, trying to keep that sad folky sound, and experiment with my vocals a little bit. It's got a similar sound now, but it's a lot tighter, and clearer (and a little bit more of a story involved)

Again, thanks everybody for giving me a listen! I do appreciate it. That's why I stick around this place. (-:

I just wanted to say, I've been keeping busy on my music, and uploaded a few more songs. The song "Crisp" is almost close to being finished, I think that it has got a Days of the New/Tool sound to it. haha.

I'm working on some really complex and layered stuff, and hope to get vocals recorded when I'm not sick anymore.
