“I’ll be right by your side ’til 3005, hold up”

the whole screaming goat thing is weird…

so i’m heavily listening to these two songs by chiddy bang. xaphoon jones you crazy, crazy crazzeee

ray charles

that’s the jam!

mind your manners

childish gambino, aka donald glover — check him out. i can listen to his whole cd [camp] all day long.

his lyrics are pretty sick… actually, i dig this site cuz there are a buncha references i don’t get

i really like this song. i like how chevrolet used it in the ads… with slow mo video — it just worked. you can find it on their “some nights” album

acoustic

i’m a huge fan of studio acoustic versions

official video

this kind of music is starting to grow on me… i’m still trying to find other similar stuff… i dunno if it relates but some songs off the drive soundtrack are pretty good too.

college – a real hero (feat. electric youth)

kavinsky – nightcall

fun.” is an american indie pop band based in new york city.

from kanye west – diamonds from sierra leone (remix)

[Jay-Z]

I got it from her ‘ye damn!
The chain remains, the game is in tact
The name is mine, I’ll take blame for that
The pressure’s on, but guess who ain’t gon’ crack? [laughs]
Pardon me I had to laugh at that
How could you falter when you’re the rock of Gibraltar
I had to get off the boat so I could walk on water
This ain’t no tall order, this is nothin to me
Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week
I do this in my sleep,
I sold Kilos of coke, (so?) I’m guessin’ I can sell CD’s
I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man
Let me handle my business, damn

more fun with mac recording… this time, trying out logic express 9 — it’s waaaaay more intense than garageband

i need to play around with it more, but i found a drum loop — it’s suuuper sloppy, but i gotta post it as an exercise. i can’t be a perfectionist right off the bat…

john mayer – something’s missing*

* this is another funky-tuned song… i think it’d be more fun to play on an electric, which i’ll try out next time

this one was recorded on garageband, while logic was installing (it’s a ridiculously gigantic program)

john mayer – love soon

i’m a sloppy guitarist

did a suuuper quick test with garageband ’09, which was pre-installed on my mac mini.

i gotta bug greg again about getting the brodie mics back… i’m sure they’ll sound a lot better than what i was using… yer gonna love this actually — it was rock band usb mic. yup. apparently, computers know that it’s a proper mic and it worked fine (enough)

basically had the mic on the stand pointed at my guitar. simple.

i didn’t do any real mixing or post-production on this so it’s pretty raw…

so here we go — “in your atmosphere,” which is actually a fun song to play — the tuning on it is odd tho: E-B-E-F#-B-e

go easy on me — i JUST learned how to play it yesterday… i need to clean up the harmonics and the hammer-ons a lot

john mayer – in your atmosphere

this song is crazy tough… not only is it an odd tuning (drop-C), but the finger positions and picking is crazy. if it was a rockband song, the guitar difficulty would be “devil”

i can half-ass this song, but i wanna get good at it…

here’s theĀ guitarĀ tab. maybe i’ll post my progress along the way… maybe.
