arkady ......... I am thrilled to see you participating in here as I said before smile  'Greensleeves plus' , that was so good, it was really relaxing to listen too.  Thoroughly enjoyed it.  'She Moves Through the Fair' I actually don`t know that one but it was great and I loved that drumming, the beat of the drums just really caught my ear.  P.S. I hope you continue to bring your covers or originals to FSOTM for us.  Even if its not advertised as instrumental as such, any instrumental to whatever the song is that month is still a cover whether its singing or instrumental smile
.

Thanks Jan.
I will try and be more active on the FSOTM in the future.
Thanks again for the encouragement!

They probably don't even enter or read the forum posts...

And the ones that do, often do so when something isn't working right or when they are looking for a particular song. Then they disappear.

True enough.

OK Phill, you asked for it, so now you have it.
For everyone else. I made a recording of how I interpreted this song, however it was not until after I had recorded the backing and started the vocals that I realized that there was a chord error in the original so I sent it to Phill anyway. As he said he would like me to post it here I have re-recorded it, correcting the error, and it is now on Soundcloud:

I think most of the registered members use Chordie for the songbook saving their songs for future use.
They probably don't even enter or read the forum posts and those who do lurk and don't comment.
As to attracting them to do so is open to suggestions.
I've been on Chordie for years and the forum has always retained about the same number of posters give or take..

On top form Phill great song.
Well done.

Thanks Jan, Neo and Roger for your good comments.
Neo a nice set of covers there your a versatile and talented musician a picturesque setting for them  smile
Roger always liked 'Going home' never recorded myself you did a great job with it.
I found 'Greensleeves' sort of smile I was going through my Medieval period big_smile so it sort of got used as a prolog for a piece called the 'Minstrel'

Also another piece based on 'She moves through the fair' a folk song with a strange history as to where it originated from.

Thanks

I did this instrumental  a while back based on the "House of the rising sun" 
I can see it's not in the mentioned titles but hope it's worth a listen.
I've got "Greensleeves" recorded somewhere I will see if I can find it.
Thanks.

Great to hear from you, Arkady1

I'm a big fan of your ambient music, and check in on your site from time to time just to listen. Are you working on any new projects these days?

Thanks for the interest TF.
I've got a few musical projects on the go and hope to complete some of them eventually.

Hi Neo
I'm a sucker for an instrumental piece always have a listen as It's mainly what I done in the past.
I don't like singing myself never have.
I enjoyed listening to this one quite laid back and easy on the ear.
Nullabor Wall does it meaning anything in Australia. Just wondering..

Hi Ctech I've done a fair number of Electro/Dance/Chill Ambient music over the years hence my Mods title..
Starting a track is mostly easy completing a track can be difficult my hard drive is littered with uncompleted projects.
I usually build my track up using a pad as a starting point to create an overall feel for the track.
I try many combos of drums percussion etc
Then I create some sort of melody that goes with the pad with a keyboard on board the pc programme or an external one.
and or on electric acoustic guitar using effects.
If your interested here's a few tracks I've done in the past it might give you a couple of ideas.:)

A very moving song ctech well sung and played.
As my grandfather served and thankfully survived all of the WW1 this song was particularly moving for me.
I remember sitting on his bed listening to his stories of life in the trenches and to my shame being bored by them at time (I was a stupid teenager)
Now much older and hopefully more wiser I understand what we owe these brave men.
My father served in WW2 and thankfully I took notice of his stories and experiences and I have an almost complete record of his times during the conflict.
They are both gone now but I'm so proud of what they did.

I love the guitar work on this one TF and the engineering mixing etc. Reminded me of the Echo's album.
I've  needed some inspiration lately and this is the best thanks for posting.
Also The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is one of my all time doubles. Fantastic music and imagery it's Genesis at their best IMHO.

Well life and things have got in the way of being able to contribute to Chordie and write some decent music lately TF.
I do keep an eye on the songwriting section though and though I don't comment I do read and listen to most of the submitted work.
All the active mods Doug and Roger especially do such a great job at keep the spammers at bay there's not much to do in that department.
Anyway I'm still around.
