We Are The Music Makers ...

'WE are the Music Makers, and WE are the Dreamers of Dreams.' ~ Willy Wonka

 

Thought I'd start off a thread for anyone making their own music, of any description, whether it involves singing, playing an instrument, using a computer, or a comb and paper! 😋

 

To start off, although I'm primarily a gee-tar player of sorts myself, I also dabble in computers and have some nice software to play with. At the moment Im teaching my granddaughter some guitar basics so have got back into the swing of using my Guitar Pro software to teach her music, tablature and print out copies for her to pratctice at home.

 

Here are 3 songs I've uploaded to show the basics of Guitar Pro. Each song uses a different guitar: distortion, nylon, and 12-string. Guitar Pro, although MIDI, has some nice built-in sounds from its RSE (Real Sound Engine). The abilty to change key or tempo or add a guitar capo within the software is excellent for learners.

 

The songs are -

 

0:00 Space Age Love Song - A Flock Of Seagulls

3:40 Streets Of London - Ralph McTell

8:00 Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles

 

 

I'd love to hear from you all. Most folk have music in them.

Not at that level of sophistication.

 

After trying for some decades to play the guitar for more than three recognisable songs. I mastered odd to joy and wonder wall and golden brown. but if I learnt a new tune I lost one of the existing ones.

 

I moved to the banjo were just about every tune is the same picking sequence played in a different time and cords are really optional.

 

When I'm bored I do a bit of busking and do quite well. Though it is possibly the dancing dog that brings the pennies in

Ah, I really love the banjo but never got around to buying one myself. Some of Winston's stuff from Mumford & Sons sounds great.
