what if the guitar is playing me

what if inside it is the soul of a tree

what if the tree imagined melodies

what if the tree can somehow some way get those melodies into my brain

what if the tree can tell me what it wants to hear

the way it wants to move

what if the right vibrations soothe

what if the tree fulfills its dreams

what if the tree is teaching me

its song

what if you are hearing it

What if?

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Is this what they call tree music? Nice and weird.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

I have no idea what to call it

Sometimes, when I'm in the zone, that's what it feels like. There's a time when the guitar is truly an extension of you and has its own will, with you just being the instrument the guitar uses to say its piece.

Damned right!

[–] heygeorge 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Bruh this is great

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Once again, we'll go ahead and get you started...

Biff has finally finished her project and this makes it the third week in a row that you've had an original song from us. Biff plays all the guitar parts, J has a minor roll in keys, and I followed the directions to provide the percussion track. All-in-all, it seems to have come together nicely.

Without further ado:
Blind Passion (B #1, 2, 3 & B; J K; TB P)

Biff: "Tell them to turn the volume up and wait for it. It should punch them right in the face."

She's not wrong. Also, we will not be here very long. We have things to do tomorrow.

That's my wife, in whom I am well pleased! Rock on, goats! Rock on!

[–] MrHarryReems 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Very nice. Loving these originals!

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

Biff sends her thanks. This is three weeks in a row with originals - but I don't think we'll have a new original for next week. Maybe, but it's unlikely.

[–] Deshy 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Biff that was tight! Some parts reminded me of an 80's arcade game, you certainly have a specific style to your playing, technical and well executed! Job well done! Melodic harmony and repeated pattern is definitely a plus in going forward in writing. I am just SO glad you are doing this, what a wonderful study to undertake! :)

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

"Thank you. This one took a long time to write. I had to match the melodies together."

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Very nice. I can hear why it took a while, well spent. I'm going to need to listen a few times to take it all in. Marvelous, Mrs. G.

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

"Thank you. It was going to be more complicated, but I just couldn't get it there."

By that, she means it's kinda basic still. That's to be expected and is acceptable - it's only basic compared to things done by pretty advanced artists. It's rather advanced for the amount of time she's been playing.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Crunky! Awesome! Take a bow!

"Thank you. It is finally done!"

She worked on that for a long, long time. That's months in the making.

[–] grandmacaesar 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Good evening! I hope you've all made it through another work week with no probs. It's hot and sweaty where I am.

Here's an instrumental I did a few years ago when I first started messing around with a slide.

Snoot

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Is that a metal slide?

[–] grandmacaesar 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

It was a cylinder shaped bearing. I don't know what it was made for. There were two of them in a box of industrial electrical parts at an estate sale. They fit my ring finger, so I paid the lady fifty cents and repurposed them.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

It seems like I have heard this before, either way, I like it, I like it a lot

[–] Deshy 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

loving it, so darn groovy!

[–] CheeBooga 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago

[–] CheeBooga 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

yep ah ah ah

My wife was like WTF

[–] grandmacaesar 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Nice job!

Fwiw, Zappa's last big band covered "Ring of Fire" in 1988. Zappa had met Johnny earlier in the day, and had invited him to join them onstage that night. Johnny had to bow out, but Zappa and the band played a nice reggae version, and "ring of fire" was the "secret word" for the night (a word snuck into the vocal lines for humorous effect), as heard in the next song, "Cosmik Debris".

[–] CheeBooga 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

That's awesome.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Got to love Frank Zappa!

I was sitting on my front porch with the acoustic guitar earlier just messing around. Porch Swing

[–] CheeBooga 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Sounds good. You live in town? Sounds busy. I love sitting on the back deck and picking. I wish I could upload some of the things I want to with my fam but I can't. I don't want people fucking with them because of my dumb ass.

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Yeah I live on the edge of town. Theres nobody here to bother me and people drive past my house without even noticing it, its kind of hidden in a way

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Do you have a swing on your porch?

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Kind of. A chair suspended by short chains maybe a foot, so it doesn't swing far but it does move

[–] crazy_eyes 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

The other night verle called me twenty minutes to midnight needing beer. So when got here we tried to play old man

[–] TheBuddha [S] 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

LOL You're right! That is terrible!

Still, you were having fun!

[–] HulkJizz 1 point 1 point (+2|-1) ago 

I want to know how it works but I ain't clicking that shit.
