Well that went down like a lead balloon. I wonder if 'Love Is All Around' will fare better:

Roger your A Lullaby and the video was wonderful and showed  incredible work.. I am sorry I have not logged on until just now. The song and video was more than anyone can listen to and watch and not feel how you sung the song.     

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

I enjoyed this one a lot!! I was curious what software you're using to record it, because it sounds pretty good ... I'm going to have a try at this one later this month (although time is already running out!!!).

Cheers

Re: SEPTEMBER 2018 FSOTM - A Love Song - A Lullaby

Thank you C.G. and Richard.

The dog is Bella, my epileptic baby, who has a bullet lodged in her brain and weakness on her left rear leg after an injury, plus signs of several other broken bones and leishmaniasis. Yes she is a rescue, found four years ago in a very sorry state and she has been with me for 3 years now.

This was her in March 2014 when she was found:

The software I use for recording is Audacity and I record one track at a time running through a Behringer mixer. I do have an autochord but it is not used in either of these tracks but I am using a 12er for rhythm.

Hi everyone, back from a holiday hence the late comments smile

Roger, wonderful cover on songs!  You sounded great vocally and musically.  You did a fantastic job putting them all together with the sound effects, instruments and loved the pictures as they flicked on through with both songs.  What a gorgeous dog and very lucky and blessed to have found you to live with and care for her smile

Nice one neophytte and great to see you  had a mate join in with you for this one.   Mixes it up and makes it interesting to see others as well.  Do you 2 play together often?  I think there is a 3rd "wanna be" that wants to be in the video performance as well  hahaha ....... maybe get your son to join in next time with a shaker or something lol smile

Kevin and I used to work at the same place a few years ago - he organised a few other musicians who worked there for a jam night, someone told him I play guitar and I came along for a few jams ... we've played together a couple of other times, but not frequently ... this was the first and only take of the song smile

Nice work on 'Love is All Around' Richard, and great to have two other artistes join you on it. Great fingerpicking and a super job for a first take.

Without realizing it, my song  that I posted   A kiss  in the sun, is a sad love song,  so I guess ill say that was my submission.

That is awesome that you and your son did that.   Way cool in my book !!

Thanks smile We've done it a few times since, but as it was made up as we were playing it, I often forget the lyrics ... guess I should write it down so we do it consistently ...

My other son also did one of my originals (Gypsy Fair) with me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ol3RqE0lA4

He has (well, actually they both have) said this is one of their favourite songs ... makes a Dad proud smile

He has way more talent than I will ever have regarding  staying on beat.
He has a very nice voice. I don't know how you kept that kazoo in your mouth so long smile

I am envious of you -those are special memories you are forging - can't ever be topped by buying any toy or video game.
The time you spend with your son like that is preciously  irreplaceable.

Congrats - enjoy -  and never stop !

Thanks - I was (pleasantly!) surprised by his good timing, however his first preference for instruments was the drums ...

We don't generally put our "home" movies online, but the other two I have are building a Strandbeest and building a Spacerails. There's also a jam we had on guitar and harmonica from a few years ago ...

Re: SEPTEMBER 2018 FSOTM - A Love Song - A Lullaby

beamer, comments left for you in the songwriting thread.  Nicely written.

Roger, I attempted the song~ Love Is All~  Around but just couldn't do it justice at all!  I tried quite to record it a few times and just didn't sound right so I gave up, don`t think it suited my voice even with transposing the chords.    The other song I don`t know so didn't do it.

Perhaps next time there are the top 3 from the hat - who can contribute in the genre picked by the first one pulled out of the hat; ie Roger wins and nominates the two categorys,  and two songs, then the next 2 pulled from the hat nominate a song in the two categories Roger nominated ... ?
