RoughMix 148 - Drop D Capo

After quite awhile without a RoughMix post. I decided to add this. I have been recording music, but actually posting a podcast takes some time, and life takes time too! This episode runs long, and is experimental. The audio records uninterrupted and has background noise as recorded from my Palm Tungsten.

I am making up everything on the fly, but it is based on some experiments I did in earlier recording where I played with some elements.

SHOUTS: Special hellos to listeners in: Vimont, Quebec (near Parc de Naples); Seattle, WA USA; Eskisehir, Turkey; near Peabody, KS USA; Moskva, Russia; Guangzhou and Shenzen, China

RoughMix 147 - Scratch Pop and Ham

The cast about how music is made....

I was playing around with a kind of scratching sound on the guitar and decided to experiment with some other effects. By effects I do not mean anything electronic. I mean doing gimmicky things on the guitar itself, likes this kind of scratch, some popping (where I place a thumb under a guitar string, pull it up and let it snap back to the fretboard) and a few other things.

Effects, gimmicks and tricks do not make a song, but they can be tools to help the creative process. My technical abilities continue to grow, but creativity oftens only thrives when something fresh is done or a new approach is taken. This episode takes one listen at approachingly freshly using what I am Pop, Scratch and Ham.

In the second clip the effects I use include slapping (which I do with my thumb) slap harmonics and then a combination of these things as well.

There are two clips: the first is called "Pop and Scratch", and the second "Ham is OK" (see if you can figure out why.)

Shouts to: Casablanca, Morocco; Ghana somewhere north of Wenchi; Cameroon somewhere east of Foumban and to many friends in China and the rest of the world. If you send a short voice mail we can maybe share what you are doing in songwriting with others in the RoughMix community. [http://RuffMix.com]

A quick study on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I pick two chords to start and then simply record what happens afterwards directly to the hard disk of my Dell Precision.

The cast about how music is made....
This time around I am using a tool that churns things up a bit. I play predominantly the acoustic guitar. I tried this time to record playing things in a different way than I usually do. Differently stylistically, rhythmically and different guitar tricks, and you can hear that is this short clip recorded mono on my Palm Tungsten.

RoughMix 143 - Don't Know Why

The cast about how music is made....

I began this bit with a soft guitar piece and let it flow from there. The lyrics were all on the fly made up as I went along. This was a kind of a tool to help with the lyrical creativity.

The cast about how music is made....

This is a long format episode. I recorded what I was doing over about 15 minutes without pause. In this episode I give commentary during the music as there a bits to talk about.

Amongst other things I talk about the concept of having a musical library, and as always the importance of recording / capturing what you do so that you can later access it and use it.

The cast about how music is made....

Sorry that it has taken so long since the last post. It is not for lack of music, but for lack of time to create the cast from the raw data.

This episode is one where I am intentionally raw, also vocally. I am actually trying to make my material rougher for the cast so that we continually get at the main point, that music starts out rough before it ever gets to its polished presentable format.

RoughMix 140 - Twitter Tune

The cast about how music is made....

This cast episode happened as an aside. I was playing the guitar and scanning the computer for messages and came upon some twitter notes, and I started to sing and play making up lyrics as I went. It is an exercise I try to do sometimes to see if I can do it, but I almost never actually record it as by the time I notice it is happening it is already gone. This time I had the Palm Tungsten running and was able to capture it. The focus of this episode is on the creation of lyrics. My main point here is to allow yourself to be truly silly and to simply let flow what flows. You can always edit later, but you can only edit what already exists. So enjoy this very silly TwitTune. And for those who may care to know, my twitter ID is nlnnet

The cast about how music is made.... This cast incorporates 4 Palm recordings all related to the same song I need to write for a specific event. It gives what is likely the best inside of the head working to date (and is therefore longer than normal. I tried to share what I was thinking as I was playing, which is of course impossible in the extreme, but I hope this helps you. Thanks so much for for listening! Please tell 3 friends about RoughMix!
