  1. Haven't seen you in a long time...I miss you.

    Hope all is well.

  2. awesome, exactly what i'm aiming for! as i've said before, i WANT people to get bored! i hate 'hooks'. thank you, Adrian
  3. thank you i dont' really believe that reading music would affect anything at all. i should explain myself better. i can't read music, i don't know what this or that is named. but i know completely how to use it, i know how it functions. music makes perfect sense to me already. i can listen to pretty much ANYTHING and pick it apart completely. i don't know what someone else calls this key or that key, but i can hear that key and play that key just fine. the name isn't important at all. any instrument i've picked up, i've been able to play. i obviously haven't played everything, (or even close to it) but i do truly believe that i can play anything. i started teaching myself to read music at one point...my brother-in-law has college text books on the subject, as that's what he studied. but i got bored because it only gave names for everything i already knew. it just felt like a waste of time. i can seriously pick apart every single key to just about anything i hear...i don't have to know the names of them...that only helps in explaining it to someone else. but i can just play it for them if i really need to show them and thank you on your advice, and to the vocal harmonies thing...i wasn't trying to make something sound studio...i DON'T want that right now. if i ever make a studio record, then fine, but not now. i want it to sound natural. even though in some of my more recent music i use synth and such, it's still played live and recorded live. screw-ups and all it's a demo so i didn't want polishing and buffing. i wanted LOTS to be left to the imagination. thank you dear joelly. sorry, mine was rambly as well...all i was REALLY trying to say is, thank you for your sincere advice and thank you for taking the time to listen. i completely appreciate honest criticism. Adrian
  4. Well thanks for asking! Its coming along. Progress has been slow with self teaching, but I'm taking a couple of lessons now! That keeps me motivated to practice, so that there's noticeable improvement between lessons. (The fact that I have a HUGE crush on the guy teaching me doesn't hurt either. ) Oh, and Adrian, I really am going to listen to your music and add something useful to this thread. I promise! <{POST_SNAPBACK}> you're making people smile, how much more useful could your comments be? love, Adrian
  5. lmao sounds good man hahah, i dunno, i just play it, i don't even know how to read music...so...yeah...i can hear it, i can learn pretty much any song i hear if i want to. but i can't read music...nope.
  6. sir...you have no idea what this post meant to me. some of the things you said brought me on the verge of tears. thank you...from the bottom of my soul, thank you so much really...god, i can't express how much this meant to me. thank you so very much. Adrian
  7. heheh, i figured you'd like the synth in that yeah, it's a synth-cello. i'm actually quite proud of it...simply for the fact that 90% of the cello in that song was all improv. only the chorus was prewritten (wanted stability on that) the rest, i just randomly hit record and started playing whatever came out...and the most amazing thing happened...it actually worked! actually, i think the whole thing was only like 2 takes for the synth. i'm really glad you enjoyed it. thank you so much for listening Adrian
  8. oooh, i'm actually glad that this topic was suddenly revitalized i have a new song up that i REALLY REALLY want people to listen to! it's called 'grattitude' i think it's the best song i've ever written...i'm absolutely in love with it. you don't have to love it as much as i do...i don't think that's even possible, hah...but let me know what you think, please www.myspace.com/adrianbartholomew thank you, as always, Adrian
  9. Looks interesting. I'll have to play around with it. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> What would you call that tuning? C# sus 4 ? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> hmm...i have no idea...been wondering exactly what it would be called, actually...anyone else who picks up my guitar just calls it, "Adrian's tuning". heh, i guess that works
  10. hahah, thank you for listening...no, i really don't do any happy and upbeat music...lol, i couldn't imagine that working for me my music always has a positive message...but i'm kind of a dark person naturally...i have humor (see the song, 'buddha is my homeboy', just the title is tongue-in-cheek humor) but it's always from a dark perspective. i'm honestly a VERY optimistic person, but i'm also always very dark as well it's a weird balance, i know. um...yeah, actually this music is getting a lot lighter than it used to be...i dunno...just the way i write. i have this one song...i may put up a recording of it sometime...anyways, it's the most self-depricating song i've ever written...it's really quite horrible...but at the same time, it was something that i really NEEDED to write at that time...because it was a turning point...it pointed out how rediculous it all was. so...this horrible horrible song...this wholly depressing, self-depricating song...i entitled 'Euphoria' it helped me a lot. i dunno, i'm weird Adrian
  11. lol, was it just me or did he (as an actor) REALLY seemed to have studied Mr. Bush's expressions for his character? Seriously, he had ALL the looks down, even that little coy smile with the 'heheheh' (shoulder's bouncing up and down). No? Adrian
  12. What tuning do you use? from low to high, it's C#, F#, C#, F#, G#, C# on paper, looks like it would be kinda monotonous, but it gives it quite a unique sound...bar chords, obvious work well, but there are a virtually endless number of finger possitions and slight alterations that give me a VERY wide variety of sounds. I'm able to play most standard tuned songs in my tuning, with a little work here and there...ironically, the tuning, while seemingly simplified, gives me a variety of more options Adrian
  13. "Carry On" is also a really good tune. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> awesome, i'll check it out
  14. No, it occurs frequently under the verse. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> In that case, it's purposeful
