Random guitar Jams

Post by Dr B » Sat Nov 07, 2015 6:59 pm

Not sure this really qualifies as 'music' but hey, we can but try.

A linky to my YouTube channel. I've only been playing about 3 and half years so be kind....

My Favourites are "River of Tears" and "The River" (ver 2)... its all just random jamming really with the exception of sweet child and the intro to rain down..

Pretty good Dr B. I've been playing nearly 40 years and I'm still useless. Nice finish on the guitar btw.

Here's one I'm on from about 1978: http://soundcloud.com/john-symon/01-moonlight/s-rnqQN

Groovy sounds, Doc :thumb:

I wonder if you've heard of this place? http://soundcloud.com/tour/
Check it out. You can record and experiment there with your own stuff and hang out and jam with others likewise inclined ...

I only know about it because my brother's got a few of his own home-made (acoustic) recordings on there. Goes by the name of 'Ham Gorilla'.

The 'Ham Gorilla' comes from the fact that he is based in Saudi Arabia, and the most common phrase you hear there (basically at the end of every sentence really) is 'Hamdul'il Allah' (sounds like ham gorilla ) - which means 'Praise Allah'. Himself and the other expats there take great delight in 'innocently' repeating this phrase as often as possible to their unsuspecting Arab co-workers. Bit naughty, I know ... as ham (pork) is of course quite an insult to anyone from that persuasion .... and then to link that with 'gorilla'. Weelll ... life is pretty austere out there at the best of times, so they have to make the most of it in any way they can.


ETA: Just seen panama's post. Yeah, that's the place. :D
Will have to have a listen.

Hey Panama

Great tune. Reminded me a bit of a Pink Floyd / David Gilmour feel what with the chorus effects on the guitar and all that. You know, a kind of dreamy feel....Enjoyed it :thumb:

Hi, many thanks for the comments. I have heard of sound cloud but not got around to loading anything serious up. I'm not that good yet and when i get to that stage I would probably invest in a good mic as well. Thanks for the suggestion :thumb:

Why thank you....the money is in the post to you....(wink).......

I'm currently working on adding guitar to Adele's "Fire and Rain" - its a great track and she is a good singer - but I think she could use a blues / rock guitar on some of her tracks - adds a bit more edge and soul....

Just two guitars and bass, some echo, some flange and some reverb...Pinkfloydy would be what we were aiming at. Totally at odds with what was current at the time.

Three masters at work.

Great stuff - but I can't help thinking of Nigel Tufnell (Spinal Tap) whenever I see Beck..... :thumb:
Heh. I can see that, but he is one of the all-time greats; I've always admired his guitar work and compositions.

I used to be a pretty nifty harmonica player; pub/club band standard but don't play anymore because it gives me wicked cold sores. I miss it.

Great chat Boys n Girls

Listen to this.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-LfzLOe ... re=related

The best version....better than Santana himself. Classical meets Latin rock? Listening to this is part of the perfect friday night in....and in case you thought I was cultured, alchohol and a female rubber-clad poll dancer would not be unwelcome additions to this firday night in..... :a

Really enjoyed that, Dr B. Would this be the original?

Wow! It is the ground bass he is improvising over, basically, but very impressive.
