Come To The Carnival (Slide Guitar Version)
Travelling minstrel feel I got from this, beautiful playing Andrew, outstanding. Easy vote, Gibbo
Well some nice guitar on this Andrew. Nice folk tune with a touch of Donovan, a big slice of you.
You obviously mislaid the lyric sheet :-) never mind...yes I got a Donovan thing even before I read other comments...just nice and easy on the soul as well as me old ears. Your output is just bloody phenomenal...I reckon you do an albums worth in a month!! A true and worthy musician. Well done with "Hot-Ants" btw lol...love that one! keith
Hi Dan and Terry, Thanks for all the nice words, I'll try to upload some newer material soon, it's very hot here in Australia right now, so that might be a while away!
What a great song Andrew. One of your best for me. Thanks for the dl, going to be listened to more than once....
what a fantastic slice of folky wonder..liked that thumping (your feet stomping?)Slide guitar is superb Andrew...loved the lightness in here, the vocals add to the meaning, but the guitar work creates the lightness that lifts the human spirit. I can float into my day on lenticular clouds :)
Hi Rich, David and Ray, Thanks for the kind words, the Donovan connection is intriguing, but I would say generally 60s pop still floats my boat! I'm off to work now, but I'll be back later this arvo!
This is classic folk done perfectly and timeless only the way you can do it. Truly enjoyable Andrew.
Yeah, I'm hearing a bit of "Donovan" in this too, but I don't recall him ever working with a slide bar. Nicely done, and congrats on the number one for Honey Ant Dreaming!
Nice slide guitar, Andrew. Song has a sort of Donovan appeal to me with a touch of Cat Stevens. Certainly British '60s folk feel anyhow. Good song, well done.
I have been (pretty much) into recording since the mid 1980's, even before I bought my first 4-track cassette recorder (A Tascam Porta-One) I did a few things at a Melbourne based art school where I ran a couple of tape decks, with manipulated sounds on the tapes, just to hear what it sounded like, needless to say it was experimental!
Thereafter I tried to get onto some more serious recording, and tried my hand at steel string guitar songs, I am a left handed person, who plays guitar right handed, so I don't ever need to re-set any instrument, and also the left handed way does not feel right to me, I'm not sure why this is, but it just is!
Recently I have been enticed by all the modern soft-synths and incredible processing availabe to computer aided recording, and I mainly (still) use Garageband when I track, I have tried Ableton Live and Pro-Tools, but I need to learn a whole lot more, the are very intetesting, but I always go back to Garageband, for some reason I find it works for me, and is quite similar to my old Atari ST (running Cubase 0.1!) which I still have, and it still works too!
Anyhow, I try a variety of genre's and I love all electronic music, I also like Ambient, World, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop....etc
Music is like oxygen to me, I don't think I could ever live without it!
