Description
I've been spending a lot of time noodling on guitar; producing pieces like this one.

Noodle dish
Well, it starts out with a melody which leads to a chorded verse structure, but all of the parts are then noodled-in as I go along. One idea progresses to another until eventually it's time to return to the original melody. Hey, I often have noodles for the main course : )

It's That
unique and distinctive sound. I did sort of miss the vocals though.

Words and Melodies
I'm not sure what the ratio is, but for every song I record with lyrics, there are at least a dozen or more that are instrumental. I can't write words fast enough to keep up with the melodies. Well, I can't even record and develop all of the melodies fast enough that keep coming to me. I guess that's a good problem to have (so I'm not complaining).

Man, you have cornered the market
on a guitar sound a style that falls somewhere between a China and Croatia. There's a fair bit of Snakefinger happening here too - which is a very good thing.

What we listen to
I listened to the Snakefinger album you recommended (which I was not familiar with) and loved it. I'll be checking out more of his stuff. So thanks for that tip.

I really don't make a conscious effect to achieve a style. I keep reaching for sounds that appeal to my ear and then play around with them. Is this an effect of the music we have absorbed from the past? After growing up on popular music, folk, rock-and-roll, and Broadway musical soundtracks, in my late-20s I began seeking out World Music and its many different manifestations. I like to think it all left some kind of indelible mark, but I really don't know if that's true.

Samurai Noodles
Thematic work here, congratulations on the way this is developed. Developing an idea over the course of a composition is rare at MJ. I can hear that happening here, and over time appears as a wonderful addition to your talents.
I want to humbly offer two suggestions. Squeeze a tennis ball all day long. Just carry it with you. In a week or so graduate to a soft rubber ball. In a month replace the soft ball with a harder ball. This habit will increase the strength of your grip especially between the thumb and first finger. Don't hurt yourself, no pain no gain is not how this works.
With the increased strength in your wrist move your thumb behind your first finger on the center of the neck when you play. This technique will dramatically improve intonation and rhythmic articulation. Improved hand strength will permit increased use of slides, diverse bends and multiple vibrato techniques. The improved vocabulary will fire innovation in your compositions.

Cha-cha-cha-changes
Since I'm primarily a melody-based musician, the concept of theme and variation lies at the core of my expression. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it's overt, but even when I get back to restating the basic melody it seems I can't play it the same way again : )

Has an animated feel, would like to see a picture of what you were thinking. That hard stop at 1:43 was unexpected...cool song.

Noodle
This noodle deserves a better drum part. I like this.

Sigh
Well, I rely on loops for my percussion tracks, so that is often one of the weaker aspects of my productions. Still, I think it's better with the percussion than without, but I'm often left feeling envious of songs I hear with crisp and well-defined drumming.

my ratio tracks finished songs with lyrics is a bit more modest than yours but I have the same issue, music comes easier that words..
I feel you had fun making this track :-)
enjoyed!

Words and music
Yes, the lyrics almost always seem harder to develop than the music. It may not be that way for every singer-songwriter, but that certainly has been my experience.

Born in a Minnesota blizzard, I'm now residing in a coastal heat of Brooklyn, New York City. I recorded my first original composition as a teenager using a reel-to-reel tape recorder back in 1967, and I'm still finding it a creative challenge... [see more]
