This is a riff that I wrote a few years back. I think I jammed it with RPG Productions as part of a longer song, although I can’t seem to find that recording. Anyway, I plan to trick this one out a bit.

I finally got around to plugging in my guitar this evening. This is just the Starcaster and the Spector going into GarageBand with bunch of the canned effects layered on top. I don’t remember which ones.

With absolutely nothing in the hopper this evening, I decided just to futz around with putting effects on my second acoustic FourTrack recording. The result is this sort of disgusting piece of music. Oh well. Fits my mood.

Here’s another. No dryer this time.

I added effects to my recent FourTrack creation. Fun!

Using the FourTrack app, I recorded this one right after putting on a fresh batch of strings on the Yamaha. The percussive noise in the background is the clothes dryer.

I tricked out my first experiment with FourTrack, an iPhone app that is hooking me right now. On top of the four vocal tracks of yours truly (loaded into GB as WAVE files via FourTrack), I put on one bass track, two GarageBand drum tracks, some GB Lunar Strings, and some guest vox from FBdN son #1.
It’s a close call, but I think this qualifies as music, as in “the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity.”

I’ve downloaded a new app: FourTrack. App seems pretty good, although transferring tracks from the iPhone to the computer is a bit of a pain. You’ve got to have a WiFi hookup, which I don’t (a neighbor does, fortunately), and then each track has to be downloaded separately.
In any event, the app seems like it might facilitate some musical microblogging. Maybe they’ll do update to make syncing/sharing easier. Here’s the first creation. I will trick this out in GarageBand, even if it is only six seconds.

First up, a pretty good Primus video that I came across here whilst tag surfing.
One, I really like that tune, although I’m not familiar with it. I suspect some of those lyrics aren’t network-TV friendly.
Also, tag surfing, I noticed a couple of comments about Les Claypool along the lines of “boy, is he weird.” I wouldn’t call Les Claypool weird. I think he transcends weird.
Here’s some bass microblogging. Hope it develops into something.
