    i'm going to be posting new things i play here... i feel like my old thread for this is sort of dead...(plus lamp post is not one word like that!!!)

    https://www.strat-talk.com/threads/between-you-and-me-and-the-lampost.379080/


    and maybe it'll work better for me to start a new one...

    Secret Handshake is a working name of my beloved's and my instrument and music projects, and i'm borrowing it to use here...

    here's yesterday's

    Dude you be out there!!! What kind of delay you using? I like those chords that peek in and out. You got some big ears to hear that. Yes very spacious and delightful...

    i think the electric axe and the delays are working quite nicely for you at the moment. :D

    i added the fretless Jazz Bass this time around, with fx.

    in which i play bass (eep!), and two guitars (one chords, the other improv) and program the drums (badly)

    it's all a voyage of discovery, right?

    well here we are again

    two takes of same track

    i had done this one.... it took a while to find the vibe for the improvised meody...



    but before i posted it here, i listened to @Omppu 's awesome I want You Back cover (nearby in this very subforum)and suddenly wanted to play it again differently ( a variation at any rate off the theme i did in the first one...)



    its a drum track i put together and then a rhythm track and a melody (sort of) track...
