Gremlin  āœŽ Edit

Location: Carl Sagan's Cosmos āœŽ Edit
About me: 
āœŽ Edit Kirk Gremlin: all vocals, instruments, and production.

Influences: Low, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Westerberg, Tortoise, Jobim, Charles Mingus, Harry Nilsson, Jackson Browne, Velvets, hip hop, lots of metal from Cinderella to Pantera, and pretty much any electronic and alt-country I can find.
I know a lot of those don't come through really, but they give me ideas, and inspire me to pick up the guitar or sit behind a keyboard.

I appreciate you stopping by for a listen. Hope the day (or night) finds you well, wherever you are.

All tracks are available for free. I will upload some more demos in the future. : )

Lol these will likely be priced for the yuppie class unfortunately.

Kind of reminds me of Randy Newman. As for these machines, I think the magic number is 250: 250 feet in altitude, 250 MPH, 250 Mile battery life. You don't need to buy one, but it would be awesome to be able to go from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia in under an hour. Semi-autonomous, $200/hour for rental -- we'll call them Gremham 250s.

Thanks! Iā€™m thinking this should be opening track due to energy and intensity. Thoughts?

Gremlin gave feedback to Rex Yehudi (shoham) for “Lay You Down (1st)”:
I am liking this one a lot!

Is that a baby or kid in the bg now and then?

This needs a ukelele and ocean sounds and would be a great naughty Hawaiian love tune LOL

Good stuff. Bridge chords seem to be lifted from Trouble Sleeping? Or am I confusing it with another one of your comps?

It's like cooking, you can be a good cook just by using your senses, you don't need to know about chemistry - maybe even more so for music. But if you know do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do that is Ionian Mode. There are 7 - 1 for each note in the standard cycle. Phrygian is the 3rd Mode. It starts at 'mi':

mi-fa-so-la-ti-do-re-mi.

It's like alchemy more than chemistry, in part because there are plenty of notes other than the 12 standard tones.

I would agree with that. I view cooking similar to scientific research. Sometimes you have to go off protocol a little to get to the good stuff. Sometimes recipes are better with that personal flair.
Nice. I was briefly a jazz guitar major in 05. I found the more I learned the less creative I became bc I always went to my fav chords. Although I still love a emaj7 to c#min9 transition. You will find these sprinkled in to many gremlin comps throughout the years LOL

I think it's worthwhile to look into scales. Theres something to be said for what it can help you do especially when it comes to improvisation up and down the fret board. I finally got around to it a few months ago and there's a pretty minimal learning curve. The cool thing about the modes is that once you realize how intuitive they are, it's like Neo from The Matrix "Woah, I Know Phrygian!"
