Listen to my song!

Post by mediocreplayer » Mon Oct 19, 2020 3:40 pm

I am a big-time amateur but decided to follow Todd's footsteps (except he is 3000 miles ahead) and record a song or two. Well, I recorded one before realizing it's a ton of work. It sounds alright on headphones but I gave up on it sounding good in mono. I also made a video to document my Covid beard. There is zero guitar in the song, but I play a Mustang bass in the video :) . Take a listen!

:-* :) :-*

I love it, Mosta. Great job! Is this a new mix? It sounds fantastic.
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Love it!
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.

Yes I changed a bunch of things based on feedback you gave me and added a proper outro (and I started to worry that the outro is becoming more fun than the actual song). I learned so many things from the messages we exchanged and I am truly grateful to get advice from someone whose music I like so much!

The subject of Soviet Space Dogs is depressing.

You made it fun. What a fun song.

As for the video I think you move like Michael Stipe.

Is everything sequenced except the bass?

I am glad you liked the song! But I cannot believe your Michael Stipe comment. I don't dance, so in preparation for this, I watched the Losing My Religion video 2 minutes before shooting (while my daughter, the videographer, gave me snarky looks). That you picked up on this, given that I really don't know what I am doing, is nuts.

Everything (including the bass) is stock Logic instruments played on an ipad using Logic Remote.

Mosky, this is just fantastic!

The song, the recording, and the video are all so well done. BRAVO!

Nice little song!
If I was a byrd, I'd be mighty sore every time they shut the door and I don't think I'd sing...

Well done, this came out even better than it was before! The outro is great, and I'm glad I could be helpful in any way. :)

The Michael Stipe comment was only an observation and not a criticism.

I thought you looked cool in the video. I thought you were just you being you.

Of course -- I took it as a major complement! Thanks again :)
