Re: solid state guitar amp recommendations?

Though I don't use it anymore, my ears don't stand a loud sound these days, and for softer playing amp simulations sound better (IMHO). Yeah, I bought my Crate in the 90's when I was in high school, and used it in several garage bands for both practices and gigs. It cost about $300 brand new. It is...

If you're not familiar with Kraftwerk, then you need to spend some time with them. Their influence on electronic music is enormous. Start with "The Man-Machine" (1978) or Computer World (1981).

Re: The Autumn Park

I agree; this is quite nice. The chord changes are not predictable or boring. Very pleasing to the ear.

Re: Climate Change

I can hear a Kraftwerk influence, especially from about 1:05 to 1:35. Nice! Gotta respect the classics.

Re: Pedal Chord Sequencer

This looks like an interesting tool. Would be cool to use playing live as a solo musician, to allow for a more fluid performance than what you could get from a pre-programmed backing track. It would also be good for playing modal music. I can't tell from the screenshots or the website whether there ...

Re: LM: alternatives to KDE - any good ?

I have for long (over 10 years) used xfce. Earlier had fvwm as window manager, but on changed it to Awesome. Sure, that is not system for somebody who wants system that looks and behaves same way as MS Windows. Actually, I want window manager which is highly configurable, and has possibilities to d...

Re: solid state guitar amp recommendations?

I've always loved my Crate amps.

Probably you should just spend some time at a guitar store playing on different amps and see what your ear likes. This is a job for experiential learning, I think.

Re: Love Letters During Winter

Not bad for a first timer! Certainly better than my first upload. :) I like the last track best, "Neighbors." The drums dropping in and out changes things up just at the right time to keep the listener more engaged. You might try spicing up your sound palette with some more synth sounds on...

Re: Towering Granite

I like it. Electronic orchestral instruments always sound cheesy compared to the real thing, but the composition is strong.

U-Turn

Here is my latest track: https://alansanderson.band/2019/01/05/u-turn/

The recording was done entirely on Linux Mint, using Ardour and Hydrogen. It is an acoustic guitar song, upbeat with a swing feel. Enjoy!
