    Nope.

    I enjoy art made by other people in various different forms, but for some reason I've always been put off from creating something of my own. I'm quite literally afraid of it actually. I think it has a lot to do with the combination of an extremely low self-esteem and the tendancy to set unrealistically high criteria for anything I do in life, which almost always leads to not even trying.

    FML.

    I've been screwing around making music for about 20 years now. From editing midis back as a highschooler to this latest track I wrote/produced over the past couple days:



    If you prefer a Youtube link:



    Anyone want to sing over stuff like this ? I'm looking into working with a singer.

    I listened to Walking Stick, actually not the kind of sound I expected from the description but it was a happy accident as what I did hear is right up a couple/few of my many alleys (and moreso than I would have expected based on the description).

    Really good track, man.

    My first introduction to Celtic music (in any way that's had a real impact on me I guess) was the Final Fantasy Celtic Moon album ...

    If anyone's not familiar, the makers of the Final Fantasy series hired a Celtic band to rearrange songs from Final Fantasy IV.

    This is one of my favorites:



    and for reference, the original soundtrack version of the original arrangement:

    I'm still catching up on the thread so apologies if you've discussed it, but have you continued work on that album ? For some reason the start of this track kinda threw me off but I am making my way through the whole thing now. I might have to challenge myself to do something more in the ambient / downtempo realm like this.

    Well I think you should have more confidence in yourself. This was really well-played. Hopefully your recording equipment is better now :p

    Cool to see this thread still going. I've seen a lot of talented people on here over the years, keep posting peeps.

    I collect vintage drums, and belong to some vintage drum forums. I made a couple of quick videos of one of my vintage kits, to share with them. Just on my Iphone, just jamming out a bit, having fun.

    I liked that. Did you have lyrics penned for it, or anything?

    Was just wondering. Didn't know if that was one of the reasons why you wanted a singer.

    Lyric writing is a bitch, I find.

    I've never really tried.

    Just thinking vocals would really help tie it together.

    I've been playing acoustic guitar for years, mostly for my own enjoyment. I was in a band when I was 16 but that was mostly just an attempt to impress chicks and get wasted. I decided I was going to learn to play piano recently, so I've just ordered an Alesis Recital from Amazon. I figure if I can learn a few chords and play a couple of Tom Waits songs it'll be good enough

    Anyone here have a facebook page for their music? I was just wondering because I'm getting fed up with facebook basically forcing me to pay them money in order to boost my page so more people can view it. I find that shit to be fucking extortion

    Thank you. That track is actually a couple years old and I just recently found it on my hard drive and decided that I liked it enough to share.
