God Only Knows

I haven't posted here in awhile, but I just tried my hand at God Only Knows by the Beach Boys. I think it came out alright. I have trouble with quick precise pitch changes. I much prefer slow wailing radiohead type stuff. What do you guys think?

Re: Your Gear...

Just bought a new guitar. It's a 1960s Kay. http://i51.tinypic.com/2rol2zp.jpg It's pretty awesome. I'm left handed, so I had to take it to my luthier to get it converted. He converted the bridge and he cut me a new bridge. He also flipped the pickguard to the other side (it's too bad because the pi...

Old Kay Guitar Pickup Installation

I bought an old Kay Guitar off of ebay: http://i51.tinypic.com/4jw7qt.jpg I took it to a luthier and got it converted to lefty (it's a curse). I've recently been toying with the idea of putting a pickup in. Now, I'm not sure that I want an acoustic pickup. I want to throw an electric pickup in. Does...

Two New Originals

I've been quite productive lately. Wrote and recorded two new songs. The first: Boats and Planes, Everyone! http://www.box.net/shared/8d4dadqnu3 This song took me quite awhile to do. I finally got hold of a drumset, which I took advantage of here. (Although I'm not the greatest drummer). The Second:...

Nick Drake - Time Has Told Me

Hey everyone. Sorry, I haven't been able to record anything lately. College is taking up a lot of my time. But today I got around to recording a NIck Drake song I just learned. It came out really good, I think. Tell me what you think! http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=746552&s...

Cold and Wet From the Rain (original)

Hey, everyone! I haven't been able to play or write much lately, college is kicking my donkey all over the place. However, I recently wrote a song. Meh, not a huge fan of my vocals here, but I don't feel like re-doing them. Tell me what you think. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?ba...

The Beatles - A Day In The Life, Radiohead - Let Down

Hey guys. Sorry, I haven't been on here in awhile. College is keeping my really busy. So much work. Anyway...the second day I was here I was really really depressed.
