So I finally put some strings on the old Yamaha this morning, and felt the need...

It's a song about coming undone...it's messy, like everything else I do. Mind you, I had no intention of creating a song. I just wanted to see how the guitar sounded recorded. Essentially, this is yet another improv...with vocals. An unintentional song.

a couple of tracks, acoustic guitar and vocals...all improv.

This morning, for the hell of it, but mostly to avoid work...I
decided to set up my dormant M Audio Pre USB and my mic, and see what the Yamaha sounded like through the mic. I wasn't monitoring it through the PB, just playing acoustically in the room, "improvising" and I ended up "singing". When I listened back to it I was really surprised at they way it sounded. (the guitar through the mic...not me). The first track is essentially the whole song, but I did go back and add those questionable "harmonies", and some minor quitar stuff. A bit too long perhaps given my oh so crude guitar abilities...but what the heck.

Are you kidding? That was beautiful! Yes, a little lengthy perhaps, but very pleasant to the ear. Those 'questionable harmonies' are particularly nice. Whatever mic you're using it's the right one - it couldn't sound better.

Yeah, I gotta agree - this is pretty great. You've got a good overall sound here. I know you always say your stuff is messy or sloppy or unorganized, but maybe that is just a part of your style. On the other hand, I would be interested to see what would happen if you took some of these ideas that you get down so quickly and really developed them.

You guys keep this up and I might be forced to try that experiment again.

FYI: The Mic is an MXL 990 I picked up for $59. I'm playing and singing into the same mic about 1 foot away. I actually like this mic better than the ones we have at the station...at least for vocals.

As for the "Folk" category Z...you think I should change it? Maybe just to Alt (is there an Alt category?)

And Vaporman...as far as developing the ideas...I've just never been any good at it. once I get the instrument in my hands I just want to play something new. I really wish I had the discipline that you guys have. Maybe this is the incentive I need to try a bit harder. Thanks to all for the comments, really unexpected. Blaine

There's nothing crude about that guitar work. Its lovely. It's really lovely.
This is my favourite of your tunes... no surprise there though. It reminds me of David Bowie.
It funny really that we English singers take on an American accent and you sound like Mr B. LOL.. Love it though.
I also think the harmonies are nice too. Got to be honest i like it the way it is. Raw like Bob Dylan.
