Thanks guys.

 

We have a million songs, it is nice to get one of them up there.

 

Our next song we are working on is really cool, I can't wait to add it. Totally sounds like us. Me, Zack, and Mackenzie were all in a band like 8 years ago called Gifthorse. We had cool songs but then I quit music for like 3 years. Anyways, now that John is back we are back to the 'real' Gifthorse. We have so much material it is crazy

 

We want to get enough songs up on Utube so someone will realize our potential as a songwriting machine.

Yeah we will get some percussion and bass. It just isn't feasable right now.

 

We want to have a ton of songs done. It is way easier with just us because we are used to working together.

 

We also don't want to get in a situation where someone joins and wants to make decisions about songs and stuff. Someone has to earn the right to be an active member of our band. We have specific tastes in music.

 

To give you an example. We told our last bassist that we thought KD lang was one of the best singers in the world and he was like, "she sux!"

 

That was so stupid that after practice John was like, "dude we gotta get a new bassist."

 

 

I mean to say someone sux who is obviously a great talent whether you like her or not is just ignorant and telling at the same time.

I love K.D. Lang's voice. She/he's a weird one but definitely had talent.

:thu: That seems to have happened a few times on this forum lately. :)

 

Congrats on the tune, I enjoyed it, too! And I look forward to more vids!

I really love the sound of 3 acoustic guitars when they lock in rhythm that good, its such a beautifull sound. I am not so sure you need bass and drums, it would change the dynamics of the vocals and guitars and that wouldn't necessarily be an improvement.

It sounds fine as is, I just have a tendency to arrange things in my head.

I was thinking of for recording purposes. Hired sidemen who just do their jobs. There's no need to add egos.

 

KD Lang is an amazing talent. She did "Cryin'" with Roy Orbison on some tv show years back and did Roy as well as he did. She can channel Pasty Cline amazingly well too. I'd pretty much guarantee she doesn't suck! :D

Well we are over night in Windsor,we got a room at one of the casinos and they guys just ordered some food. The gig went great tonight and everybodys wide awake and being pretty LOUD!!! This place is very cool high speed internet in every room and you can have a laptop from the desk down stairs with a credit card number but no charge if you bring it back!! Anyway, on Bruce's bands recording, yes I can hear some places where bass and drums could add some good things if they where mixed right, but I still think that song stands alone the way it is also, it's great work! I never really liked KD's work but she is a tremendous talent and the last description of her would be that she sucks! man that guy must have been in the wrong band! Sure wish the food would get here,..LOL our bass player wants to hear Bruces bands track and we don't have any sound on this computer!! So he got to see them playing but can't hear it! Ok goodnight all time to find out where the food is!!

Thanks for the props.

 

There are pluses and minuses to playing with a band or just playing acoustic.

 

For solos, on acoustic i play more robotic becuase there aren't drums. When you go in a lead you want it to lock with the other guys so it doesn't create a weird situation.

 

In a band context you have more room to clown around because you have a drummer holding down the fort, and you are probably playing electric and tapping ALOT!

I'm gonna be a shithead again. If one of you picked-up a jamman or other looper you could add pecussion to the picture without adding musicians. Add in an octave pedal and you could create bass loops too.

 

Check out this Keaggy video;

There's nothing wrong with your sound though. It's nice and full and the harmonies are great. I used to do an acoustic duo and usually liked it better than the full band gig.

Once upon a time, there was a band that used to call themselves "Mammoth". Now that was a dumb name... but they fixed that and had some "mild" success. :D

Yeah I think the name change would make some sence! I'm not sure but there are many cases where you posts on certain subjects will get picked up by the search engines and if you band name is in there, you might get some attention directed AT you website and your clips too! Just an idea ..but you never know!! :thu:
