Here is a song I have been working on lately:

http://ragngautr-kindred.org/audio/rob/in-progress/Shark.mp3

And this one I finished yesterday, nothing spectacular at all on the guitar, just a simple chord progression, but I'd like opinions anyways.

Thanks for the listen!

sounds good I like it, did you record that in a studio?

Sure if the call the unused kitchen upstairs that I sort of soundproofed and the adjoining closet I gutted to turn into a vocal booth a studio!

I recorded it all one track at a time on my computer at home in my home studio.

Here are some pics.

Glad you liked the songs,

well you can really tell it wasnt just a mic in a room haha. Let me know what you think of what I just did, those arent like hardworking multitrack maspterpieces, they were me this morning cause I really wanted to try out my new equipment but theyre kinda cool.

edit: Hey and I just listened to both those songs again, They really sound great man I like the singing.

Here, try this link

http://tinyurl.com/zkeua The original one broke becuase it didn't like the ' in musn't

Yeah there is more to come to that song...I just have to finish writing it. I think I probably write and record songs in the most bass ackward and inefficient manner! I start with riffs then build up and before I know it I have something really cool, but it's short. I just need to sit down and write write write.

Thanks for the compliments!

morkalg...you know you have it in you!...

my kids thought it was cool also...they are very discriminating when it comes to music....

waiting for the download on musn`t be...ahhh here it is....wow...
you know what I like the most about the writing,,,very soulful,with out the sappy mush..again envious..must be the music!..solid progressions and a great flow to boot..good combination...

opinion: on musn`t be..little keyboard to accent... and some contrasting well placed bass lines here and there and perhaps singing the 1st verse again as the third with a same length solo in between to lenghten it ...or if no keys how about this........(after 1st verse you play an instrumental I think around bar 17 (not including intro)..play that cool opening riff as you do for a couple measures and then when you come back to the minor..sing verse two..then break with your full solo and then repeat verse 1 or combo of 1 and 3 as verse three.....a lot of older bands have done that in the past..using 1st verse with just a few words changed for the third or later verses...is that a cat gut solo? very nicley done,,thanx for the music!
ps..while I was trying to open that second link yesterday I googled the link......came up with some reviews you posted on old english history...sounded like interesting reading.... take care and please post the finished work on shark..I would love to hear it....cooker

M...as for shark...hey I start with riffs too...sets the melody..kinda...
somebody once said..(I think it was in here)...if you can write one verse you can write more...just make your 1st verse number two and write another 1st verse,,haha...
my trouble is I only write chorus`s......cooker

Cool. Nice work. Sounds great. The vocals don't quite sit in the mix to my ears but those things all come down to opinion. Just noticed you're using a variax. how do you like it? I've heard some complaints about the playability. My bro's got one but he doesn't seem to mind.

From your description, I wasn't expecting that. That freaking rocks!!!!!!!

I like the progressions - maybe vary some of the rhythm at the beginning.

you got some pipes, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself.

Great stuff man! I think "Shark That's Grinning" has a ton of potential. There's nothing really wrong with it, it's just short.

"Musn't Be" is really great too. I really like acoustic stuff.

And yeah, great pipes.
