Nice work, aldridgeg, very smooth guitar...

Another great cover, Akasha.  Enjoyed.

As an old JC fan I've done a couple covers of his work too...

Thanks, Scarebear, appreciate it.  The reason I wasn't sure is because I don't remember putting a link to that page anywhere, but I must have.  Senility, most likely... :D

Hi AtrumKithara,

I actually started out back in the day listening to the Grand Ole Opry on the radio with the folks, so I've always enjoyed the older country (up through the 70's anyway).  But, Chuck, Jerry Lee, Little Richard, Chubby, Elvis, etc. got me into rock and roll.  And when the 60's style rock hit I was really hooked.

Basically, I enjoy almost any kind of music with a few exceptions.  As you said, some of what I call the 'newer' stuff just isn't for me.  I couldn't get into most of the Disco back then, and more currently can't really get into Rap and/or Hip Hop.  I did (and still) like a lot of the earlier heavy metal, and a lot of the hair band work from the 80's.

Guess I'll always be more of a classic (as in older) music fan, but every once in a while I do hear something current that I enjoy listening to.  Like you, I'm not stuck in the past, but it's probably where I spend most of my time.  I've been listening to some of the work posted here and have enjoyed it all - some more than others.  But that's true anywhere, including over at my place.  Just what you're into, I guess.

I don't have anywhere close to all my work on SoundCloud, just a page with a selection that has a particular theme.  Most of the songs there are ones that were done lately while I've been in the "really getting old" mood, and it shows by the lyrics.  One of these days I'll post up some things with a little more kick.  The one exception on this page is a little thing I did for one of our challenges a month or two ago.  The challenge was to come up with a song based on what a picture made you think of - the picture was of a couple kids in cowboy outfits 50's style.  That's where the song "Okay Mom" came from.

Anyway, this is the only thing I currently have posted on a song site:

The other hundred or two are scattered around the hard drive or the forums.  And I'm looking forward to hearing more of your work... ;)

Thanks, Scarebear.  Not sure if you're referring to the TTM ODC SoundCloud page, or my own.  If it's mine, that's about as good as it gets anymore.  As the name implies, I've been around the block a few times and things just don't work well anymore.  Can't play much now, and and other issues have made it......well.... let's say 'unlikely' that I'd end up hitting the right note at the right time while trying to sing. :P  Now I tend to lean more toward talking than singing.

These days I'm more into the writing and production, but I still crank one of my own out once in a while for old time's sake.  Kicks and grins, ya know.  And any music I do by myself (not a collaboration) is primarily loop and synth based (keyboard and Reason).  I've been writing since the late 60's when I used to manage a few local bands, and have always enjoyed that.

But if you're talking about the TTM ODC page, yes, there are always some good tunes there.  The ODC (Open DAW Challenge) is a monthly challenge we have where members come up with a song every month based on criteria set by the person (or collaboration) who won the challenge the month before.  Always fun, and always some good music there.

And yeah, somebody abbreviated the name in a post quite a few years ago, and it just stuck.  Easier to write, too. ;)

PMK, some seriously good playing there, nice work.  Really enjoyed all 3 tracks.  Love to hear a good vocal track on Procrastination...

Go by Joom.  Just an old rocker from way back - though I enjoy most genres.

I don't play much anymore, but I still enjoy being involved in and around music production.  Also been known to write a few lyrics now and then.

Looks like a nice place to hang out...  :tup:
