Re: Don't eat my pumpkins!!!!



I guess I should explain myself....

I have been having a problem with my hand/arm. It's been numb/pins and needles feeling. I haven't really been able to play guitar for a couple of months. But recently, I've been trying to play for a few minutes a day (an attempt to torture myself).

Anyway, I figured I would hookup to my amp (Sunday) and try playing a little longer. Since, I haven't been playing....I haven't been recording. Not wanting to forget how I have things arranged in my newly reformatted recording setup, I recorded a little guitar track (the chorus in this "song"). After that I played around with my drum VSTi for a bit...then decided to double the guitar. At that point I figured, what the heck, I'll try playing the bass. Since that went fairly well...I came up with another little progression (verse). Rinse, lather, repeat.

It was after I finished the verse and chorus that I walked out back for a break. There I saw a gopher near my pumpkin patch. I had noticed some gnaw marks in my pumpkins earlier and figured it was this little bastard that had been eating my pumpkins.

Wanting to complete what I had started, I grabbed my mic and quickly made up those cheesy lyrics. I also wanted to have something to play around with in the DAW for the times in which I couldn't actually play an instrument.

SO long story long....this is the result of some improv goofing around stuff. Plus, it made me laugh.

Finally, since my hand was feeling better Monday, I thought I'd try to play some "lead" guitar. It was then I added the gopher solo and posted it here.

Re: Don't eat my pumpkins!!!!

I absolutely LOVE IT! Your rhythm tone is very close to Akira Takasaki on Loudness' Thunder In The East album. Your vocals sound alot like Ted Nugent, and the lyrics seemed to channel Frank Zappa from the other side. Please, may we have some more?

Re: Don't eat my pumpkins!!!!

Thanks a lot man! I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. IT means more than you'll ever know. And the references to other artists is great.

Re: Don't eat my pumpkins!!!!

Nice! I especialy like the cheeeeezeey video that you made for. Music doesn't always need to be serious and dramatic. Looks like you had fun while overcoming an obstacle at the same time. Awesome!

Thanks!!! So much truth to this... "Music doesn't always need to be serious and dramatic."

And yeah.... the cheeeeezeey video. I think it adds to the overall sense of just having some fun. Thanks for noticing.

It was fun. Honestly, I had no intention of recording that day. It just happened.
