Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 2 – “Country Roads”

January 22nd, 2010

This week’s song is “Country Roads,” originally performed by John Denver (of course). I did a demonstration about music recording to some students at my old school in Sept. 09, and I thought it would be a good choice for a podcast.

As usual, this recording is a simple live version done on a Sony ICD-SX700 Voice Recorder.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day ! … It’s been a while so I thought I’d post some updates. I celebrated my mom’s birthday last night by playing Open Mic … you know totally different than my typical Thursday evening. I played a pretty good set anyway … one of my best performances by at least one count 🙂 I think my mom, stepdad, and granddad agreed but it’s hard to tell. Not really their style of music anyway.

I have the first four songs of TSOTSS recorded, although I will likely need to redo the acoustic guitar on “Appreciated.” Recording has gone relatively well, considering, and the final products are excellent. I haven’t budgeted my recording time terribly wisely, however. It’s the time of year when things start to get hectic, and I have a lot on my plate as of late. Hopefully, I can get it all together and get another two or three recordings kicked next week. I’ll let you know. News Archive > February 24, 2006

I guess it’s about time I passed along some news? Well there really isn’t all that much. I’ve been playing the Open Mics just about every week … I missed February 9. This week was really good … I felt like I sang and played very well and wish I had a recording. The audience was very attentive and quite large for what I have been encountering. I didn’t hang around long because Cecily and I were both tired and needed to get home and go to sleep. It was still after 1 before we got to …

As some of you know, I have started recording “Two Sides Of The Same Soul,” and, as of today, have completed track 1: “A Dream.” So far everyone who has heard it has really liked it, and it is honestly my highest quality recording to date. It sounds very good, and somehow still maintains the feel of the original demo. I am very pleased with it. I’m not sure when I will continue with the rest of the album, but I’ll let you know as I make progress. I’m guessing I’ll be ready to release it by late summer–I am putting a lot of attention to detail into these recordings. I want them to be as perfect as possible … after all I am eventually going to want radio airplay of them.

Anyway the lofi of “A Dream” is up so you should check it out. Until next time … News Archive > December 19, 2005

I had mentioned that I might take the forums offline to a few people, but I think it’s better to just leave them in place — at least for now. Maybe some of you newbies will take advantage of them (hint hint) !

As for other news, I made a new recording of “Disillusionment” and, well, it rocks. I will probably make a few changes to it, but the preliminary recording is now available. Also, for some reason I still didn’t have the right version of “Pieces” up, but it is now. Take a listen — I would greatly appreciate some feedback. News Archive > June 28, 2005

Well suddenly I am back underway in the production of my millions of albums. I think it all started with the recording of “The Abortion Prophecies.” The newest addition to my album list is “Philosophical Hiatus” which is intended to be a much lighter, more goofy album than my others. I get a lot of goofy ideas so maybe now I can export them.

I just recently began the recording phase of Unnatural, and I am really hoping to make it my best album so far musically, so it may take a while. Thinking it over, though, I think I have narrowed down my current musical influences for this album to the following four songs: “Rush – Subdivisions,” “Bad Company – Silver, Blue and Gold,” “Golden Earring – Twilight Zone,” and “The Police – Message In A Bottle.” If I can get these songs to that musical caliber, well then I will rock.

Also to update, I have done a few recording sessions with Unborn, and, as soon as I get my setup figured out (yeah I am always the one running behind), we will get some new tracks for them to pimp out. So, until next time.
