This thread is dedicated to the people on this site who play instruments for fun or dollars. Talk about your setup, songs you like playing, techniques, performance. Today I'm with my Fender Player Precision tryna figure out some Geddy Lee bass lines.


Nice thread! I don't know anything about gear but I play piano and guitar. I do it for fun, but I'd like to find a way to get dollars from music. Maybe I'll start busking. I like playing blues on piano, and folk on guitar.

Here's a little tune I like to play on guitar. It uses dadgad tuning and is called "Midwinter". Idk who wrote it.


Here's the kind of thing I like to play on piano.


Do you have any recordings of your playing OP?


nice thread, i play guitar and bass and i'm a huge gear nerd, i play for fun but i am looking forward toplaying gigs



I play a little guitar. Some bar chords are still hard for me and a few strings are always muted.

Also am I just a noob if all I can do is chords and not finger picking and tabs?



Also how does one get better at playing by ear? Is it just a myth?

I’ve been messing around with piano for a month now and I know a few keys that go good together, but don’t know any theory or when I look into it seems too complicated and too much work to get into.

Is it possible to be a good musician by ear only? I’m more interested in playing than doing the basics because I’m too old to start all that shit now and I just want to make some good sounding music


unfortunately yes


m8 work on basic finger exercises and simpler songs. You gotta start somewhere.


Play guitar, have done vocals in metal n punk projects, and have been trying to produce some industrial techno n digital hardcore as of late



I want to learn to sing good, are there any good guides that arent idealist bullshit and based on some science? I dont want to do dumb lip trills that dont teach you shit.


i have the same question

>I dont want to do dumb lip trills that dont teach you shit.
That's like a boxer who doesn't want to jump rope or do bagwork.
Singing's a physical activity. Your body is your instrument. Lip trills will improve your singing. No excuses, just get on with it anon.



But i already can feel my diaphgram already, i want to learn how to control and direct it to make my singing more powerful and smooth.

Also every time I browse youtube they say some idealost crap like 'use your head voice
'. Isnt all voice from the head wtf.


>Isnt all voice from the head wtf.
Yes, but it's resonance they're talking about. Bass singing you feel more in the chest.



I want to sing like the oldschool 50’s singers that sounded like guys with powerful voices like sinatra and all. I guess I’m mainly looking to understand the main concepts and get some tips that could instantly help my singing. Like in martial arts relaxation and whole body movements is a big concept. Just wondering what the main ones for singing are. I like practicing by diving headfirst and then getting the refining the basics down later




Woops wrong link, like this dude: https://youtu.be/VTSgGCgpeN0


i also want to learn how to sing good, but my main problem is singing out of tune and i need help on that


>I dont want to do dumb lip trills that dont teach you shit.
Singers go brrrrr…


Have a crack at this anons
It'll make you feel great. Especially you VolCels, it'll make you feel like a monk singing to the angels.


God damn, I've been hanging out in siberia, didn't even notice this board.

My setup is weird now. I got a resonator back in 2013, and played it straight for the longest time. Then later I attached a decent piezo and started running it through a delay pedal with slight distortion so I could play with a rock drummer without being too quiet. I really love the sound, but I don't really play out right now - I was really depressed before the last couple years, but 2020 destroyed the band we built… and I hadn't been playing out for years before that. It seems like this happens any time I get a group together and start booking shows, if it's not one thing it's another.

We were always mostly originals, and the cover songs I throw into sets are usually either niche or unusual versions of popular songs.

Attached is a clip from a bar set in 2019 we played as a duo. We're covering James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's Man's World."


Hi, over a year late, but I can help you if you're still here.
