dummy player section
« on: May 22, 2014, 03:59:42 PM »
Dear  guys,

I am dummy 'musician' with less talent but full enthusiasm.  Blowing harp and strumming guitar is big fun for me.

I linked my song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRLpkRbcPBw

It doesn't make me too much effort to create it.  I enjoy the 'flow' when i am in the 'sounds'.

I am wondering how other amateur musican is playing his song. Link your music.


Bye,

Zsolt

Yeah, that's about how I think of myself.  I really like the way you shot the video, I do a little bit of desktop vid and you got some nice elements into that.  I can't play guitar and harp at the same time so I was impressed.

Maybe suss out Walter Torres stuff, he is a player who does what he feels at the time he plays, kinda makes it up as he goes along, is/was a member here but looms in the background in harp stuff.;

BigSunnyWalker,

You're on the right track.  Playing harmonica with guitar is definitely a different technique than harmonica or guitar alone; you have to play half as much on each instrument to get all of the sound. 

I hope you'll get a chance to apply your skills to some of the excellent backtracks available and share them with us.

Cheers,
Gorf

I was always partial to playing along with the sounds around me - street sounds, in bars, dormitory stairwells, data centers, next to whitewater rivers... The wild land fire crews I worked on used to let me play harp while they cut fuel breaks.

Hi,

I combined the bluesharp with (metal) kazoo here:

The guitar tuned Open D (DAD F#  A D). I used copper slide.

I see where your coming from here, forget the kazoo thing and focus on the harp tone as its required, good guitar and all but some variation and practice with the harp, you would be fun to get down and do a few train riffs with your open D or G..... YO!!!!!!!!!!! 8)

Ha ha, a man of many voices.   Just keep doing that and it will all come naturally.
