Graeme's Wee Mad Mental Music Thread

Hmmm... should I accept this offer to be featured on this lad's album? :unsure: 20210808_193325.jpg
Not that I'm unsure per say. It just that, my "Ah, fuck it! Why no?! Go on, yersel', pal!" mentality has thus far landed me a song rewrite gig that ah didnae even ask for, but accepted anyway. As well as rock song collaboration, which could lead to multiple songs in that style with the same vocalist who also gave the song rewrite to do. And, a collaboration with a guy in South Africa.

Needless to say, ah wish I was a wee bit, or lot less talented right now. Both as a musician and producer. Ah never should've listened to those Mutt Lange produced albums when I was younger. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Really mad right now...

Got my recording setup 99% done and it's currently useable. Ah got and plug my electric guitar in and find the input jack is knackered. Not keeping a signal, it keeps cutting out. πŸ˜”πŸ˜‘πŸ€¬

First my guitar, and now my audio interface goes and dies on me. 😟

So, I go back and buy an interface I'd bought and used previously from Amazon: the Behringer UMC404HD audio interface



I got it the other day, arriving at the weekend there. Ah unbox it, getting hooked up to my computer, and powered on.

Everything is going, or it seemed to until I go and installed the audio driver for it that I downloaded the Behringer website. I install the driver and it aw starts going tae $%[email protected]Β£. Crashes the recording software I'm using and the guitar modeling and amplifier simulation software that I use instead of micing up a real guitar amp. Needless to say, am no too happy at the moment. 😠😑🀬

You want to know how I got these scars?

Should I sign up for online lessons with this guy? πŸ€” His name's Tom Hess.


I've been going back n' forth on it for a few months, trying to decide. Ever since ah signed up for Tom's newsletters that offer tips on guitar playing and songwriting, he's been emailing me. I also got a free PDF file of a book on guitar playing that he wrote.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon, Tom sends me an email asking if I was still looking for a guitar teacher? And I respond by saying, "Yes", but that I was quite nervous about getting back into taking lessons - mainly because my previous experiences left me feeling frustrated and disillusioned. We've been going back n' forth. He's recently responding to me reassuring me that I won't get overwhelmed by it. Since that was my concern, especially when it comes to the music theory side of things.

But I think I'm definitely going to do it! Though, I don't know where I should stop when answering one of the questions on the evaluation form questionnaire I need to fill out before ah sign up for the lessons. The question being: Who are your favorite bands and/or guitar players? 😦

Where the heck do I even stop the naming names, let alone start?!

Some pretty good feedback on my recent guitar riff idea. Even if the most recent one is something a former guitar teacher said of my approach to the guitar. Not that I'm offended, it's brought back that memory. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
