WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 18, Quantized Pt.II

Week 18 – Quantized pt. II

Picks up where last week left off.
I like this whole song-fading-into-song thing, dunno how long I can keep it going for, but I’m enjoying working on a new album from left to right.

Thinking of coming back to this one with a friend who plays saxophone and record a couple of stabs in harmony + a wandering solo.

Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition!

WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 17, Quantized

Week 17 – Quantized

beginnings of a new larger-scale project
Thanks to Mel for the help w/ harmonies!

Noticing lots of other people around town going for a huge epic sound, spending lots of money in the studio to pull it off.

Trying that big production sound myself on a budget of 0 in an apartment.

Really cool old drum beat I have been wanting to use for a long time – essentially a half-time shuffle with the accent halved again. A quarter-time shuffle I guess. (Whole-time shuffle?)

An Opeth-style outro section. (Just quietly possibly my favourite guitar lead I’ve ever made) – also attempting to fade this track into next week’s.

———————————–
You don’t know why
But you’ve got nothing at all
You think you’re flying
But you’re in free fall

I heard you got a new song on the radio –
You’re getting played almost every day, I don’t know how it goes.
You’re in tune and on time
Quantized – and holding on the market line.

Yeah it’s good
But I can’t feel it.

WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 16, LoopJam2 – Ebow Chords

 

“Week 16!
Left this one till late – while working on new TSC songs during the week and trying to figure out a seperate project.

I’ve got a cool audio setup for this loop stuff – DI from my guitar, lineout from the Roland (which is playing the loops + Live guitar) and a room mic to capture the beautiful ambience of the loud fridge and traffic’

WeeklyBeats 2018 – Week 13, JazzEmUp

Week 13/52
Little diddly in E(b) minor.
Very short of time this week so this is a quick and rough setup – but I also used my camera to film it. Going to use this simple setup to film and record a bunch of guitar stuff for my social media.
Here’s to the second quarter of 2018!
Lots of guitar instructional vids / loop jams / practice diary stuff planned. some of which might make it into WB.
Also going to explore some other really different styles of music.

It’s gonna get weird for sure
Thanks for listening!

Hello World.

I’m creating a central point from which I can share my music, assorted media, links, pieces I’m enjoying, lessons and teaching resources, text and any other projects I want to share.

Mainly for ease of access to my WeeklyBeats 2018 project (more on that in a seperate post). But also for guitar tablature/transcription for my guitar students – and just to create a regular practice of publishing content.

More to come.
