Soundcloud's been funny, so I'm using the s-click.

Those are beautiful, Plankton.

^ I've always especially liked the "Drummer Boy" song, and I love how you use the guitar's gentle, bell-like, haunting notes and its gritty, rougher ones in the same instrumental piece, which sounds like a Def Leppard guitar choir. Listening to it was a pleasure.

I wish you'd make more YouTube videos of your music. I think this would make your songs more accessible because then they would only be one click away. I also like staring at rectangles of color while listening to music. :p:

I'm wondering, too, if you might like a mod to merge all your music threads into one Plankton Collection so that your music would be easier to locate? I'd like to be able to trace the path of your music-making more easily, you see.

Thank you very much VEGAN.

If Soundcloud wasn't so cattywompus, I'd put all my stuff up there all in one place, but I've had issues in the past, and right now, so it forces me to use SC as well. As far as merging them all into one thread here, that would be entirely up to you (or a mod). I created the Forum Member Showcase as a kind of vault for my work as well as everyone elses, but sometimes I feel the need for some tunes to have their own home. Those are the ones that I feel are my best work to date.

Soon (when I get around to it), I'll be creating a website to hold all my stuff. I used to have one, but I let it go since it wasn't being used much. I'm planning on putting together a full CD for purchase, but it could take a long time since I'm really lazy.

...and yes, I need to look into making some visuals for some tunes and toob em up.

Thanks again VEGAN, for the listen, and the comments. Not many people do that.

:laughing: Dude, I can't remember the last time I heard someone use that word. I don't know why. It's a delightfully whimsical word.

lol

I used to be a big fan of Sniglets. I guess I still am.

That's bad ass, man. I really like the first one.

Thanks Blast. The link in the first one is updated. I added some bells from a VST I was looking for. Much better mix.

Made it into a video too...

You're welcome, Plank...listening really was my pleasure. :) You play very well, you know.

If I had the power to merge your threads, and you wanted them merged, then I would certainly do so. I don't, so you'd actually have to ask a mod if you want them merged. I think merging your threads would be nice and might cause more people to hear your playing.

Yeay! You put one of your holiday songs on YouTube!...

...and with a festive picture to view (even better than a colored rectangle). Thank you.

If you have time, would you please put up a YouTube video of your Drummer Boy song because I especially like your version of that one?

Plankton, I feel you really should make a CD. I was thinking about your two X-mas songs and the fact that you seem to really like making instrumental pieces featuring your guitar. Have you considered making an electric guitar holiday CD? I think there might be a market for such a CD, and this project would continue one you've started, since you have completed two songs already.

I then got excited about this idea of your making a holiday CD, because it seems like such a good match between your talents and the songs you might like to play.

So I made a list of the other holiday songs (my favorites) that I could imagine you covering creatively using your electric guitar (or your acoustic, too).

Here's my idea for...

Plankton's Electric (Guitar) Holiday CD!!

1. Drummer Boy (already done!)
2. Carol of the Bells (already done!)
3. Silent Night
4. O Come all Ye Faithful
5. Away in the Manger
6. What Child is This?
7. O Christmas Tree
8. The First Noel
9. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
10. Joy to the World

(and if you want to go for a full 12 days of Christmas concept, you could add two bonus tracks, maybe God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen & O Little Town of Bethlehem or Handel's Messiah)

^ Please do this. I looked online and see there is a CD from 2004 or so called "Merry Axemas: A Guitar Christmas," but it features a variety of different players and some of the music I've heard so for from that CD is much more mellow than yours:
Merry Axemas Everyone! It's a Guitar Christmas! - Merry Axemas: A Guitar Christmas - Epinions.com

For example, I listened to Alex Lifeson's "The Little Drummer Boy" and felt your version, Plankton, was much, much, much, much, much, much better, more powerful.

Please, please, please make a CD of your holiday music, because it rocks!!! I hate to see an opportunity missed. Do this. Do this. Do this.

(Am I being subtle enough? ;) )

Cattywompus *is* a cute word!

blastingas10 12-09-2012 04:05 PM

You did a song better than Alex lifeson, that's a huge compliment.
