An Abstract Mouse says howdy


Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m a UK based mouse. Been writing songs for many years and sung in a couple bands back in my youth. Been recording on and off for a few years, all home efforts.

 

Much prefer writing tunes to recording which I find quite hard work  Am joining Songstuff to listen to others, do some reviewing, find some inspiration and share and get feedback on my own tunes

 

I play guitar and piano not too well but enough to get by. Am looking to discover some tips/know-how on how to get better at drum and guitar rhythms, filling and building up recordings and producing/mixing in general.

 

Have put down a maybe for collaboration. Am big into melody and interested to try my hand at writing lyrics for others.

 

Already happy to be here to come across the Songstuff channel.

Welcome Abstract mouth, I've been on Songstuff for just over a month. A lot of decent people and community spirit on the site. I like your influences.

Hey Abstract Mouse

 

Good to meet you, welcome to Songstuff! Hopefully we can help you on your musical journey (wherever you plan to go). Loving your name. Looking forward to hearing your tunes!
 

As ever, (the same goes for you, @TheGarageJump, and any other members), please consider inviting your musical and lyrical friends to come and join us! At the end of the day, referrals and invites are a hugely important aspect of community building. To be honest, the more people there are involved, the better our community works.
 

Personal invites tend to bring in some great quality members. That said,  I absolutely encourage you to entice social media connected musicians and writers by invitation and by sharing interesting topics from our boards, articles from our libraries, on to social media.

 

We all help shape our community, by contributing, bringing others on board and making suggestions. So, don’t be shy. We’re a pretty friendly bunch.

 

Cheers

 

John

Many thanks @john and nice to meet you. Glad you like the name. It's taken from a rather excellent Frank Black song.

Thanks for the kind welcome and checking out my tunes!


I really enjoyed your No Title 07062019 on Soundcloud.  Get a kind of wonky dreamt  vibe, really good. I don't have any YouTube or Spotify yet. Probably Spotify in the future for sure.

 

I'm working my next EP. I want it to sound better than the last ones. That's one of the reasons I'm here.

Hey thanks for checking out "No Title 07062019". 

What a title.. oh my!  I have lyrics that go with the song but I haven't gotten the vocal track(s) added.  Your mentioning it adds alittle pressure.. haha..(the good kind) to getting it finished.

Good deal thinking forward. That could be important for queing up your older catalog to get listeners interested and ready for your new EP.

Cool. Have you checked out the Somgs/Lyric Critique boards? What are you targeting as a release date?

Ah I thought it was supposed to be an instrumental! Do you have a melody worked out already? Well look forward to your next version.

 

Yes good advice here. Have to say I am not the most prolific. I 'released' EP1 in 2016 and EP2 in 2021... Not because I didn't have the songs. But a combo of pretty full-on job, kids and tendency to overmix to death...Trying to got a bit more stripped down for the next one. Will post some work in progress mixes here for sure. Want EP3 done by end of 2022..
