    I am a NYC composer guitarist and conductor.
    I've been at it for 50 years so I won't bore you with my experiences.
    Instead I'd like to share a composition for three acoustic guitars and bass.
    I shoot and produce my own videos music. I hope this inspires.

    Thanks for watching and listening.

    Here's one of mine I wrote thinking of my friend Jose. I built it out of an exercise for major and minor chords.

    Well, you've added rhythm but where's the tune? Could you play the tune by itself without the chord fills?

    Like I said before, there's no real start to it. Nice pick-up but where does it start? You need a firm A chord/sound at the beginning.

    At the moment you have a C#m and no apparent tune. That's the problem. C#m isn't a strong beginning sound. Do you hear that? It makes it sound as though the tune starts at the F#m. That's the first definite sound the ear hears... but it doesn't start there. That's the thing.

    Play the tune without the chord fills. Can you record that? Just the tune. You play it, I'll write it!

    If this is what he plays, you wrote it starting on 2, I hear it as starting on "and of 1", what is correct?

    Hi, I've spent most of my guitar time (on and off for year long stretches) making up things, and only now started to study and learn a bit - I went for jazz (that's why I'm here now). Here's a tune I did on chemo two years ago, so maybe chemo isn't so bad It's not jazz but maybe there's something jazz like in it? Dunno



    here's another, way older one

    Really lovely song, (I have no idea what the words mean) i dont think that matters,
    now keep it simple DO NOT JAZZify

    cool vocals, certainly has something, It needs arranging ( nothing bad) everything does
    i thought i heard bass coming in at one point, it reminds me of early 70s Shaun Phillips. Tim Buckley,
    early Elvis Costello, talking vocal delivery obviously not poppy

    I would tighten it up, put a pinch more groove in sorry cant find words, @ mo, it's very floaty (good) maybe
    at end of phrases and beginning, dont play too much .

    Very good, also no drums & bass as such is nice, 99% music today is looped crap.

    Keep going Papa, i think it is actually quite commercial ( thats not a bad thing, essentially means its marketable)

    Dont take my references to heart, it just made me think of those kind of people. I listened to it 4 times.

    Wow, lots of folks writing stuff! Very cool. I forgot that one of mine is out on the interwebs via my former quintet. This is a "warts and all" studio recording- live, no corrections or overdubs. On the site, click on "OT Blues" which is the original I composed for the band.

    (Played on my Cushman archtop, made by forum member Matt Cushman with Kent Armstrong floating PAF, AI Clarus head, either a Redstone RS 8" or a RE 12"- from the tone as I hear it, probably the former.)

    I posted a tune a while back in a separate thread in this subforum and for some reason it has disappeared...

    I'm sure it's not a plot. Can't you just post it again?

    Just checked out the whole thread again - unfortunately some tunes have been pulled. Ragman, no more "Lost Balloon"? - come on!

    There's some great blowing on a lot of these tracks but as this is about composition, I'd just like to express my appreciation of the below for pushing the envelope one way or another. This stuff is priceless IMO.

    Thank you

    (jordanklemons This City #120 received quite a lot of deserved attention)
