My voice is so very tied to my guitar in that i can’t ever find any notes to sing other than ones contained within the chord i’m currently playing. Not only does this make my melodies rather predictable, it makes it entirely impossible for me to correctly sing most sparely acoustic Ani DiFranco songs since she doesn’t use normal chords. Want an example? Here’s a low version of To The Teeth, since i’m in the middle of changing strings on my guitar.
Wow… “relief” has changed so much from its first recording, even though it’s only just a month old. To see what i mean, compare the rough draft to a performance one week later. I wish i had the studio version of the song at my disposal, but right now it’s stuck on my ADAT tape. Hopefully i’ll be able to get it up by Christmas break.
all of my current unreleased mp3 listens can now be found at moment.uprush.org. please listen responsibly.
oh, love me for my files! Until i get a more permanent link up, here they are in yummy mp3:
Me – crashing
Ani DiFranco – Subdivision
There ya go!!! I’ll figure out how to stream them later (really i know, i’m just lazy). EnjoY!
some good audio of lil’ol me that i’ve been listening to: goodbye (w/gina accompanying me, she’s incredible), never say goodbye (one of the first times i played it), can’t do without you (gina singing and amazing song by a friend of ours), & changed (an instrumental that i’ll never figure out how to play ever again).
