Lamewad Music

Postby Thief » Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:29 pm

Hey guys, I recently became a music major and not only do I get free 1 hour lessons in my instrument (piano) but I also get a half hour lesson in a second instrument! I've chosen guitar because I've taught myself some guitar but never really had lessons and would love to be get better. I'm also going to start taking voice lessons from my mom (also free) because she was a Music Education Major in Voice and she said she'd help me out :)

Anyway, I've started a channel on youtube to serve as a sort of improvement log. I've posted four videos; three videos from when I was in high school (they're pretty bad), and one "starter" video to begin showing off my progress (also bad haha :P). I want to post a video every month or so in order to help myself see how I'm improving over time. You don't have to subscribe or anything because I'm not really looking for that, but it's just something for myself that I figured I'd share with friends and family. You guys fall under the friends category... unless there's something I don't know about. Uncle Bob?...

Oh and this is going to be pretty much just Guitar and Vocals, no piano... unless I change my mind in the future.

Anyway my channel is Schmeman

And here's the first video. Thought I'd pick one of my favorite songs to start off with, "Place to Be" by Nick Drake.

I keep thinking I ought to pick the guitar back up again. Got really into it a ways back, but sort of drifted away from it over time.
Good luck on your progress though. Seems like a good idea, being able to review yourself like that.

That's great man, I love when people have passions for instruments and for a second instrument you play the guitar very well. Its funny actually my main instrument is the guitar and second instrument is keyboard (never could afford a piano). It's been a long time though since i've done any videos or anything, should probably start doing some again I used to enjoy it. It's a shame you say you're not going to do any videos of you playing piano, it would be great to hear (it's actually my favourite instrument.) and you could even do your own version of the Shenmue theme ;) (obvious I know).

But yeah keep it up man, was a very nice cover.

Thanks guys :)

I'm not exactly opposed to recording some Piano, I just don't have a really good way to record it right now. (well I don't really have a good way to record guitar either but whatever). I actually have been working on an arrangement for a certain shenmue song for a little while now, multi-part with piano, tin whistle, and a little percussion. I just can't really record it right now... so yeah. :P

not bad, it'd be cool to see you make some originals. Not a fan of watching people play other people's music.

If you ever need someone to mix your shit, just come to me. Oddly enough, I actually mix rock better than I do Hip-Hop...

Maybe I'll make that a goal for my next video, an original song. However, I'll never stop playing other people's songs. I like doing covers and playing my favorite tracks.

It kind of sucks but oh well. Doesn't help that I have mad allergies at the moment, either :/

I stopped taking guitar lessons because Music majors are busy as shit but I'm gunna pick them up in the fall because fuck it. Anyway I've still been playing and I feel like I've gotten a little better but whatever.
