Poor Me

Get Flash to see this player.

This tune comes from a desire to play over chords rather that just jam in a key. So I take my vocal songs and lay down a rhythm thing and then do the guitar. the production could use some work but the overall sound I like .You may have to crank the volume a bit. The sound effects were for someone I sent the song to around Halloween last year. A bit corny but fun...looking for collaborators.

Love the sound of your guitar, sounds fierce cool altogether. For a second
during the intro I was reminded of Van Morrisons Coney Island but then
the percussion took it somewhere else. I really like the tone of this song
it's unusual for the genre and fun and kind of unexpected. Terrific.

thoughts from the bull...
this is absolutely lovely! although i love jazz, i don't know how to play
jazz to save my life! not only is this so well performed, it's clean, and
the production is fabulous! the song may not need the sound fx, but
they don't ever really distract.

this is top-notch stuff and i am looking forward to more! thanks, tim!

btw, i lived in Arlington for many years until i moved out to the rural
burbs! my best memories are from that area!

Just say Steely Dan and you made my day.
Thanx for checking this out. Its one of the first things I was happy with on GB. I use a Dan trick called a muu(Spelling?) chord or a raised second wich gives the over all sound a 'danish' effect. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Saw this in your STR thread...
I really dig your drawings (song art). Is that you in the kitchen? I think you have some good musical ideas, but the overall feel in my ears is kind of aimless, like a windup to something that never comes. Too much chord progression without a lyrical line moving it forward. I love your guitar sound, very mellow and rounded, with personality.

After listening to your tune 'I wanna Fly' I can see where your comment is coming from about all wind up and no pitch. Your a straight fast ball guy. 'I wanna Fly' explods with playing, as does the other tunes of yours I have explored. Reminds me of the Montro Summet records where all the greats get together and play... everybody showcasing there talents....
Thanks for your honesty. Its refreshing. I can only imagin being able to play like you and wish i could explode with musical talent as you do.
I think my style c
omes from me being too carful about what to play ...to make sure i got it right.
Yes, about the art work...its me in the kitchen...A CIA(Culinary Institute of Ameica) grad with a love for drawing and cooking as well as music.
I am so glad you stopped in to comment.
Thank you for your visit.
I will be checking out more of your music, I am sure...now that i have got a taste of it...

Your guitar playing exhibits beautiful tone and tasteful phrasing. I love the glissando lines. Structurally the song has some very nice changes and the continuity and flow is very well done. Glad you introduced your post, this is very good!

The lack of a distinctive melody categorizes this in 'background' music for me. Very mesmerizing.

Thank for stopping in. I should probably sing the lyric i have which would define the melody loud and clear, but i am never happy with my vocal.
I guess i here the melody in my own head when i listen to this version.
thanks for taking the time to comment.
