    Acousitic guitar recording

    Thank you everyone. I was able to adjust the tempo using an automation on the master track. I had to find an old PDF to figure out where it was, but once tempo curves was added to the search I found it. This could have helped out on many of my previous projects. Always learning something new.

    I'll look into it.

    Acousitic guitar recording

    Unfortunately, I am working an a very old Mac (2007) and have reached the end of my upgrade compatibility at GarageBand 8. Finding resources for that version has been a little difficult. but if I dig I can usually find something. I know I need to upgrade but I think I'd need a generous benefactor at this point to be able to do so. So, I'll make do with what I've got for now. πŸ™‚

    I am still using GarageBand as My DAW partly because of simplicity and partly because of cost. But I will do some searches on tempo markers & tempo mapping to see if it is possible. Typically when you all have made suggestions in the past I have been able to find a way to do it in garage band.

    Acousitic guitar recording

    Yes, but the process of creating new songs is what is driving my desire to practice. If I lose that, I get bored quickly. So I am mixing practice with creation to keep my head in the practice. I know this means my first works will be simple songs, but it is what I have to do to keep my interest up.

    Acousitic guitar recording

    Yes, and I am playing with the metronome in my ear. I have another question though. If I want to slow down at the end of the song, can the tempo be slowed for only part of the song. That is something I have not figured out how to do. Especially if I want to add other instruments (which for this song I do). When I change tempo it changes for the entire song. I suppose I could just drop all other instruments out when I slow and just play what feels right on the guitar, but then I'd have to lose the metronome.

    Thank you I had it half right. I was letting the end ring out as you suggested, but the fade up and out I had not tried. Back at it then πŸ™‚
  10. I have been focusing my time lately on learning how to play the guitar (which is one reason I haven't been around much lately). I have found the thing that keeps me coming back to my practice is writing my own original songs while I am learning. With the limited chords I have learned so far, I have now written a couple of songs and I would like to record them. The trouble is I am still a bit clumsy with my strumming and chord changes. Every time I try to record I mess up some where in the song. I know that I can record multiple takes and then piece the best takes together, but I am having a hard time making it sound like one natural take. Any advice is appreciated. I should mention I am recording on an acoustic guitar in front of a condenser mic. I have the option to record through the guitars pickups but it just hasn't sounded as good to me.

    Hey, what's wrong with the Accordion! I was thinking about taking that up next, if ever I get my guitar play to any kind of respectable level.

    I Want to Give You the Moon

    Your voice fits this sound quite well. I'm not sure what but something seems a bit off in the mix. At first I just thought you had the vocals too far back in the mix because I had a hard time hearing them. but on a second listen I think they may just be competing for space with the bass line. Maybe it is just me and may ears. Anyway, Nice work, the song is great.

    Nice sound. I have nothing further to offer in way of a critique that hasn't been said by bachandl. I really enjoyed the listen.

    Little Bird

    Well, while bird watching has been a big influence on the song. It is really about my own children. The song is inspired by a friend I have that is encouraging her children by using big birds with really large wings spans that can soar almost effortlessly on the wind as an example. She wants her children to be able to soar though life. While I understand where she is coming from I couldn't help but think of the many smaller birds out there that do some amazing acrobatics in flight that big birds just can't do. I just feel it is a shame to overlook all the great things that birds/people of all kind can do because of their differences. So, this came about as a kind of response to that and the song turned into a "I'm so proud of you " song for my kids. Being an empty-nester I have applied the term "little bird" to my own children and used bird watching as a metaphor for watching how my children have come into their own as adults. but thanks for the suggestions they are always appreciated.
