If I had an MP3 of me making music this is what it would sound like.

My MP3 is to big to load so does a link count?

It will be the first song that plays. I wrote it, and did everything but the drums and bass guitar as my drummer and bass player complete the band. You might like it.. and if you don't I would want to know as I have not yet done the final mixdown.

The song is called Rattlesnake Smile. Slugish blues rock.

PS: I'm glad I'm not banned, but BAND.
Wow, thats a great song. I loved it. Well done.

For recording drums, I use an ancient battery powered PZM, mounted on a heavy wooden plank.

I am.... a barbarian.  :(

Here is a test recording I did playing "Continuum" by Jaco Pastorius.

I did this shortly after getting a new bass.  I was just checking how it was sounding,  recording it straight into the DAW with no effects or anything.. just the flat signal from the bass.
Not the greatest take, but it was just to check levels and the tone.

The summer of 1968, The Fabulous Bluenotes (Stax/Volt influenced band) and The Three Heads (Motown influenced singing trio), recorded live on a Wollensak stereo reel-to-reel tape recorder.  Some idiot insisted on screaming "MICKEY" through the night - I hope he is being forced to listen to an endless loop of sNoory Coast shows.

just some random jams.  no actual "songs" we've worked on.  mistakes left in to give it character.

Although I'm a bit of a metalhead in a hard rock band, I'm also a huge Waylon fan so I talked our drummer and bass player into recording my favorite country song of all time.

Here's another sound test recording I did with a bass-less track of Iron Maiden's -Two minutes to midnight. 
I was testing flatwound strings on my fretless bass and was seeing how it came through in the mix with some heavy drums and guitars.
You can't even really tell it's fretless can you?  but if you listen closely you'll never hear any fret clank.  ;)

2-Mins is a great song.

So, are you playing bass in place of the original track? If so, why not just get a band together and do it all for real. I enjoyed that, and you're right about the fret clank. Or lack of

Waking up this thread, lol.

Here's a clip of me singing Cuts You Up originally by Peter Murphy.  I used an instrumental track and recorded my vocals.  I also harmonize with myself.  I do play guitar as well, but lately I've been in the mood to sing my favorite songs from instrumental tracks.  I've been focusing a lot on vocals lately.

If anyone is familiar with Porcupine Tree, I also sang and covered their song Lazarus.

I have to dig up some of my original music where my wife sings lead, she is much better than me at singing.  Her style and genre is much different than mine, she's more like Janice Joplin, Mellisa Etheridge style.

I've never heard that song before but I think I like it, nice melody to the vocals with good lyrics. You're singing in key, and all that good stuff, so, cool. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the reverb you are using there because it's a bit tinny sounding. But that's minimal.. Cheers

Thanks for the feedback, yea I can kick the reverb down a notch.  It's a bit too high.  Thanks again!  I tried to capture a bit of the 1990 original with the reverb.

Did you know that MV (our host) is actually a pretty good drummer? I do believe he's posted a few tidbits earlier on in this thread.  I also suspect he may be a drunkard. Glug glug, glug. <-- like that :)

It was fun finding this thread earlier and checking out some of the tunes. Good job guys! Talented Gabbers  :D

I figured I would share a few tunes from 1997-98 of a few really, really drunk University/College guys.
We obviously weren't pros and only ever did it for fun.

I got a soft nostalgic spot for "Diamond's Only Shine" (lyrics and vocals) and "Kneel Down To Jesus" (co-wrote and chorus vocals)  ;D
It was so ridiculous I just remember laughing our asses off.

These two tunes were taken a bit more seriously.
"Stockholm" (lyrics and vocals)
"Take 1" (co-wrote and vocals)

That has some serious Betts grade leads, reminiscent of "Blue Sky".

both of those guitarists are great.  unfortunately, my favorite of the two is unable to get off the pipe.  we never hear from him anymore.

That's a damned shame, this tune is good enough that you ought to put it up on Magnatune or something.

And yeah, if that's you on drums you must have gigged around quite a bit.

Yes I heard an audio clip of him on drums, he is a very good drummer indeed.  I don't recall which song I heard though.  I will go back and check them out again.

Update:  Yes it's Happy Little Song, the drums rock in that.
