Texotic? Over my head, you intellectual, you. Gremlin is low brow all the way

I like that driving rhythm guitar especially!!!

Thank you! A tough one to sing! I might go a half step down and see if the higher registers arent as strained vocally

Gabrielle gave feedback to Gremlin for “Broken Arrow...”:
I like to pretend like I know music terminology so . . . this song is sung in a perfect "range" for you. Even the higher notes(that sound like they'd be difficult to sing) sound really good. AKA: no sense of struggle in any of your singing on this one

You have a a ton of songs on here, and I definitely haven't listened to them all but this one is a stand out for sure. Cool imagery and cowboy sound.

Thanks Gabrielle. Yes I def have a ton of stuff on here. I need an editor HAHA. Appreciate it, I think maybe increasing exercise and things has improved lung capacity some and helped with singing overall. I guess it is a bit like a downtrodden Roy Rogers tune so the cowboy vibe is fitting.

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Gremlin for “Broken Arrow...”:
Impressionistic technique. Very raw -- in a very good way. This is probably what I am shooting for with my no-fi pieces, but they don't turn out with the sound quality you got on this one.

Anyway, I think you should use this technique more.

Thank you kind King Yehudi. Hah yes I suppose it is a bit impressionistic with a dash of Japser Johns or Cy Twombly attitude of just throwing it at the canvas and see if it sticks. Yes, currently my laptop is out of commission so all my recording equipment is just expensive paperweights at the moment. All I have is this cheap used iPad I got off ebay but the mic is surprisingly decent. The high ceilings provide some natural 'verb. No audio enhancements of any kind, just through a filter on the video on iMovie.

Perspiration is like recording in the red. Sometimes you have to clip out to let the inspo shine through...

Been listening to a lot of stripped down folky music lately which has kind of inspired me to get back to basics with my own songwriting. The last few I have written have been very sparse and get by more on tone and intention rather than Gremlin chord bootcamp.

This is one I have been enjoying a lot lately. The whole record is soothing. https://joanshelley.bandcamp.com/track/wed-be-home

Nice love tune! Dodgers hat?! Vocals sound real strong on this track.

Am I sensing some Grimoire Guitarisms?
 Sep 11, 2019, 08:34 EDT
Haha thanks. Been trying to write a proposal song. Feel like this one has been my best so far.

Haha yep. Been a dodgers fans since childhood after watching the pirates destroy my reds every season lol. Was disheartening after a while. Still have a soft spot for the big red machine...

Thanks, currently only way I have to record right now is by making a vid so I guess sound wise it isnt too bad considering zero effects or EQ.

Haha my influences always betray me...

Well I mean, I am sure to some extent me playing around with the scales and things in the evenings has creeped in to my playing in general. :) Hah they did yes, ironic that I am now a pirate myself...

I didn't realize they have a whole series of those books for diff instruments as well as a few others for guitar. Ran into a bunch when I was killing time as a guitar center recently.

I just got myself the chords book. I really think it's prett damn good -- especially the front page of each set, shows the entire fretboard with the 1-3-5 or 1-b3-5 etc for every position. Just fun to conduct mini-gremfests sometimes over the last few weeks with these. Plus, it incorporates the book I sent you, in terms of matching each permutation with the various scales/modes. For $20 I think it was worth it... I think the Reds have done better than the buccos over the last 30+, but... 1990 NLCS, much?

Raum gave feedback to Raum for “Go to Peices (Acoustic Cover Video)”:
Funny looking back on this.

I was 21 and young. This is around the time I started mastering being able to play though full songs.

Also my old fender!

I sing this song A LOT different now. I should record one for comparison. I have come a long way, for sure.

I like the video a lot- simple but kept my interest. Very pretty sky and landscape. The song is great. How many "breaking news" stories do you have there?

Thanks so much for your kind words, Gabrielle.
The "breaking news" are made up stories.

The breaking news are to simulate "fake news" and real news Meant heighten tension in the society etc

ah you know what's it like when your budget ain't big and you got your affordable instruments... You do your thing yourself.
which is exactly what I did. Just got a couple of chums told them my plans, I we set up a day, stormed two locations...not far from the hood, told them what I wanted and we did what we could.
