    The Wood Talks

    Like in my woodworking...I'm also a wannabee music creator
    Fair warning- I can't carry a tune in a bucket...and this may be a little to much rock for some, what can I say, at least I 'feel' young!

    link to the tune...{hit play}

    Lyrics...
    Wood chips and shavings
    Lying everywhere
    Sweet scent of milled lumber
    Fills our house of prayer

    Tools that cut and form
    Assisted by our hands
    Bringing art to life
    True crafter's understand

    The wood talks, it speaks to you
    How well you listen shows in what you do


    Sanding smoothing shaping
    Chisel's bit's and plane's
    Desire for creating
    Cruises thru your veins

    A never ending journey
    Each steps the holy grail
    Listen to the wood talk
    And the beauty will not fail

    The wood talks, it speaks to you
    How well you listen shows in what you do

    Woodworkers are artist
    Creative heart and soul
    If you listen to the wood call
    Then you have reached the goal

    I'd have to agree with you about carrying tunes (same dog bit me pretty bad, too), but I like the guitar playing. What program are you using to record with? And what are you using for the drum tracks?

    Dog??? a whole freakin pack attacked me
    I use 'Adobe Audition'{ver.1.5} for recording & editing & 'Guitar Rig' for amp fx. My skills aren't up to that level, just rhythm {and some bass from when I first began}. The other tracks were created using 'Band in a box'...on the expensive side, but, tons of variables and total control from progression, accompaniments, fill's, tempo etc. etc...it also allows recording with-in{fwiw}........pretty cool software IMO!
