Hi all,

I feel it's time to post my first attempt.
It lacks clarity and definition in my opinion but I would appreciate constructive criticism and any ideas on how to improve.
(Maybe I should try the drums instead !!)

Thanks

Ian

Hi Ian,

I think it sounds good. The basic elements are there and it's coming together nicely. It sounds to me like you're slightly holding back - perhaps as you're recording - so try to relax a bit more and think about what you want to hear coming out the other end of the stick.

I look forward to hearing more.

Kyle

I'm still getting what I can only describe as a soft and woolly sound. I'm now giving it 'a bit more welly' but still failing to achieve a sharper more defined result. Is it just a case of more practice?

Thanks
Ian

Hey Ian,

Been quite a while since we last spoke. I'd say yes, it probably is a matter of practice. Drop me a line and we can arrange a meet.

Hi all,

I've made a couple of recordings of my practicing this afternoon and would appreciate any comments.
I feel I'm making slow progress and hopefully in the right direction!

Many thanks

Ian

Sounds good Ian. Much more relaxed now and the Passive Voice is fitting in nicely. The first track is very much West Arnhem Land inspired and I can hear the influence of From Dawn til Dusk in the second. Nice work!

We'll have to catch up soon.

Hi Kyle.

It would be good to meet up soon.
I've over spent into my ISA this month !!
Can we leave it until the beginning of June?

Thanks

Ian
