Default Hello from VEGANGELICA

Hello, All! This is Erica, a songwriter and novice singer, guitarist, and currently also percussionist, who is making vegan vegetarian music under the name of Vegangelica. I finally looked past the “Artists’ Corner” and saw there was an Introductions section and so am finally posting information about myself here.

I joined the forum for two main reasons:
(1) To share my song lyrics and find out how other vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians perceive them, as well as listen to any changes they recommend.
(2) Although I’ve played classical violin for 32 years, I am new at the electric guitar (6 months) and at drums (1 month), and so have had some technical issues with recording that I hoped to get answered.

I’ve discovered by reading the posts that there are a lot of funny and helpful people on the forum who offer constructive criticism, suggestions, and support for other musicians/songwriters, whatever their skill level, which is wonderful. -- Erica

Default my musical tastes

Hi, Antonio! Thank you for asking. Since I grew up in the 70s - 80s I find I gravitate toward groups from that time...though I hear some songs on the radio in the last several years that I love (I just can't remember their names!). In general I like alternative rock music the best, but my tastes are fairly broad. Here's a list of a few groups and particular songs I like:

Depeche Mode ("Personal Jesus")
Vivaldi (violin concertos)
Seitz (violin concertos)
MGMT ("Indie Rokkers," "Time to Pretend"--I like it that they say they just play what they like, regardless what others feel)
Bread ("If" and "Diary"--very sweet; always make me sad)
Sweet ("Love is like Oxygen"--the first rock song I remember stirring me)
A. Corelli (Sonata for Violin "La Folia"--great repetition of theme with variation)
Naked Eyes ("There's always something there to reimind me")
The Recanteurs ("Steady as she goes"--very easy guitar part; fun to play; I like the intensity of it)

How about yourself, Antonio?
--Erica

Default Tony's lovely guitar music

Hi again, Antonio...I just visited your youtube site and read that you like a wide range of music, from rock to metal to jazz and beyond. Your guitar playing is lovely...very light and quick and playful (from the two pieces I've listened to, so far)! Then I visited The Success Story band's myspace page. Your group's two uploaded songs both sound very upbeat with a good driving pulse. They sound to me like an infectious smile, if you know what I mean :-) --Erica

well i've got too many artists that i like to name, so i'll post my Last FM page:

www.last.fm/user/kweejibo

i usually go for rock, metal,and alternative, but i'm always looking to expand my tastes


EDIT:oh and thanks for listening, those two newer songs are more newer things that i'm working on, but i'm not so sure if you can get the gist of what i do from just those. idk, i try to do different things with music i guess

Welcome! Another Erica, I see. I didn't know Veridical Fiction was a band. I thought it was just the name of an MB scumbag. :P

Default Biology

Thank you, 333, for the welcome.
Do I understand correctly that you are a biologist? I think I recall reading this in the thread of another new member. I ask because...amazing coincidence...*I* am a biologist!

Say...who is the other Erica to whom you refer?

Every time you sing a song about how precious a cow's life is I'm going to eat a hamburger.

Edit: Jesus Christ, get out of my state please.
