Put Feet To Your Music

 In this group I want to be able to help those musicians who want to "put feet to their music". Which means to take it somewhere, to set goals and reach them, to make this music thing happen. I want to give counsel through example and then give application.

What this group is about.

 So my idea for this group is that I would like to share tips and actions that I've taken to put feet to my music. But it's not just all about me. This is more about you and where you want to go and be. Let's talk here and see what we can accomplish together.

 

 I still have a long way to go, at least I have a ton of goals to reach still, but that's really what I'm wanting to build here. A community of musicians who need each other to get somewhere. My producer and friend told me that you only need one person to really believe in you. So let's see if we can start there.

 

 Let's move mountains together.

If you're using anything like garageband or anything a little better, it should have a timing option in it to help pull certain tracks in time to the meter of the song. You can easily do that to a guitar track to help lock it into place with the rhythm track. 

Like I said, keep at it. Great job but try to lock in a little tighter and you'll start to hear a difference.

Thanks, Ted. I'm using the Zoom H4N recorder. I had to record the rhythm part then I went I recorded the lead over top of it. I have been working on my timing, that's the hardest thing I guess.

Melanie, 

What software are you using to compose this material?

On a side note and by way of encouragement. Take time and concentrate on your lead track, in this case the guitar lead. Make sure it's in the pocket, in rhythm and on time. That would make a huge difference int he quality and how it sounds.

My producer and friend always challenges me with my timing, listening, and in taking time to get it right. It's worth it in the end to not rush something out the door.

Thanks for stepping out and making something happen. Keep up the work.

Hey guys, in case you haven't been following, our fearless leader Ted is on his way to making a new album. Since he hasn't shared his crowd funding campaign here I thought I would: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/tedyoder. You should all go out and pre-order it because it will be awesome!

Nic, thanks for sharing this. I'm listening right now and it's so much fun.

Hey everyone, I know Ted is a fan of Yo-Yo Ma and I just listened to this interview he did so I thought I'd share it with you: http://www.onbeing.org/program/yo-yo-ma-music-happens-between-the-n.... I love his sense of curiosity and hospitality as a musician. One of my favorite quotes from the interview - "when I come to Minneapolis, I'm a guest in your town. But when I'm on stage, all of you that are in the hall are my guests." You should listen to it!
