Garsh lets do a hard one! LOLOL dang Girl nice choice to push me!  I guess Rocking in the free world is out! lolol

Speaking of which who gets to be the  one to name the song each month?

You can plug into a Marshall, but if you are not attacking it,  it's just going to sound so-so.  If the song doesn't grove, you are just bashing through chords” .

Re: June 2016 Featured Song - After the Goldrush - Neil Young

After the Goldrush has been done by SO many people, yet it always has a similar feel to it... so... I WANT to hear something different!  smile  Come on Scott, rock it out!  LOL!

The suggestion thread is over here for next month:  http://www.chordie.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=29668  After we get a bunch of suggestions, the mods will pick together!  HOW will we choose?  Not sure yet!  Ha ha!  But it'll be partially based on song suggestion, participation, who's suggestion has already been chosen, etc... Choices will be made with fairness!  SO.. go for it and offer your suggestions over there!  smile 

REMEMBER - don't post your recording of After the Goldrush in this thread until JUNE!  smile

Re: June 2016 Featured Song - After the Goldrush - Neil Young

I like what you did there. Did you lay all those tracks down manually or how'd you do that?

Re: June 2016 Featured Song - After the Goldrush - Neil Young

You rotten sons of sea cooks!  Now I've pulled out a D harmonica only to be reminded that I have no idea how to play a harmonica. 

Hmph. 

And a 12 string.

Thank you for having  a listen and the feed back. I did the backing as single tracks with borrowed instruments with the help of my  visiting friend from India, Yogesh and his work, microphones and other tricks.   With the vocals I just recorded that with a cell phone no mike. My aim is to try to keep things raw as possible and aviod using technology. Also that way it covers up my poor singing voice. So its all done manual on this one so that is why the playing is not that great. Drums, Keyboard, Guitar, Bass. We only had an hour to get the instruments down.  Vocals done at home later with cell phone. Zurf I have been trying to get a tune out of a Hamonica I got given at Christmas and it has proved to be a tough instrument to conquer.

Manually with help on recording instruments by sound engineer.

Re: June 2016 Featured Song - After the Goldrush - Neil Young

Cool beans. Experimenting with multiple tracks is something I have yet to frustrate myself with.

The idea for balladizing it was cool.

Liked it Pete!
I agree with Graham - has a Pink Floyd touch to it.
Nice job !
