Listen to me on your iPod!
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 04:29 PM by rbnyc
Every once in a while, I share some of my songs here. Kindly, those who dont like it have ignored me, and generously, a few people have been very appreciative and a couple have even asked if theres a way they can download my songs. Its totally amazing to me that anyone would want to put me on their mp3 player. Even though I dont play anymore, I am still an artist and its every artists deepest desire to have their work heard, seen or experienced.

So I just uploaded a bunch of stuff onto a site where it can be downloaded.

These are all 4-track recordings. Some are very old and there is tape hiss. My husband says thats part of their charm, buthes my husband.

I have a lot more missing music that Im going to search for. Ill add things as I find them.

If you want to share feedback, I totally welcome it, although I no longer write, perform or record. If you want to know any lyrics, Im thrilled to share.

Thanks.

2. Thank You!
I just found my last copy of an old CD with a bunch of songs I can barely remember and it's all warped and won't play.

sigh

3. I'm still downloading. ;)
Hope you'll get the old CD to play. Can you import the songs on it?

4. It looks like it got partly melted or something...
...I don't know if I can work with it. Maybe my husband or a friend has another copy somewhere. That's how I'm hoping to find all my old stuff, through friends that may have saved it. I'm really bad at saving things.

7. Great stuff, I'm enjoying it (and yes, it's on my ipod now)
Good luck with the warped CD:
http://www.ehow.com/how_113957_repair-warped-cd.html

Are you the guitar player, as well as the singer? I like the sound. And I hear other instruments in there, was this a band?

Can you put lyrics on that download site? Sheet music? Tablature? Pictures of bar napkins with scribbled chord notes?

It's just generally amazing to me that people can sit down and create new music.

:hi:

9. Hi
I probably can go back and put lyrics. I don't write or read music and all my chords are made up. I sing, I wrote the songs and I play guitar, but on the top half of the songs I posted, there's a much better guitar player who plays lead guitar.

Is there one in particular you'd like the words to?

10. I stopped enjoying playing gigs.
I also was looking to get out of bartending. I wanted a career with a salary and benefits and regular hours. I wanted to start a family. I was just done. And then I was just busy.

12. Hey, I'm old school
and in my present state of being both old and sleepy, I didn't figure out how to get to listen to these, but I'll figure it out hopefully, when I'm more awake, and I'm sure they'll be of at least as high a quality as the stuff I've already heard.
P.S. Be looking for a PM from me some time in the next few weeks; the moment I get the official "It's Flunk Day" email, just to let you know, so that you and your husband can spend the day in true flunk day fashion, i.e. in stupid and pointless hedonism (welcome to my world,LOL) .
