PostSubject: Musicians of the Sixth Nation Thread   Sun Aug 26, 2012 1:07 am

I'm sure I'm not the only one here on the Nation that is in the process of learning, or knows how to play a musical instrument. So I'm creating this thread for a chance to people to share their music. If you use like Sound Cloud or anything, or have a Youtube account, please feel free to link others to your music so we can all enjoy what you've played or written. I'm not good enough at guitar to play anything as of right now, but hopefully in the future I'll have some covers and original music of my own to share with you all.

Here's looking forward to see what the Musicians of the Sixth Nation have to share!

Have you considered getting an Electronic Drum Kit Crispy? They take up like half the space, and can be played at low volume due to being plugged into an amplifier. You can also plug some headphones into the amp.

I'm learning guitar myself, even though I first got my guitar about 5 years ago, I'm getting back into it and can play some simple things. It's going to take a lot of hard work, but it'll be worth it in the long run.

Yeah, those electric kits can be quite pricey. One of my friends got one recently and even splitting the cost with one of his friends (they rent a place where they go practice) it was still close to $700 (total) that they spent on the kit.

I made up my own piano piece to go with Ed Sheerans song Sunburn.. because I'm obsessed with that song Embarassed
Its super simple, but its the first thing I've ever been able to play... one day I'll have the courage to record me playing and singing to it... Cool

You don't have to show your face, you can just have the camera pointed at the piano keys.

I was pretty good on my cousins drum set, but I haven't touched them in months so who knows. The only reason I think I could play them is because they're probably the easiest instrument to learn.

Also, I've written the lyrics to a song or two if you guys want to know them, but I can't write sheet music. Embarassed

That's hard for others? It's kinda natural for me. To be honest, the hardest part was my left arm couldn't move as fast as my right, so drumrolls were a bit difficult.

True dat with the head explodey thing.. I have the utmost respect for drummers, despite all the jokes that go around about them. Laughing

Try looking for these, Crispy.. Out and out the best strings on the market and a nice easy to play set of thicknesses, not too hard on the fingers yet should stay in tune quite well. Wink

did he have a double bass or a two pedal for one bass?

my friends set has one bass and one (foot) cymbol. But has it set up as, cymbol pedal, bass pedal, bass pedal. So he can double tap the bass

Don't forget to stretch them in by pulling them about an inch away from the fingerboard at the twelfth fret. Makes them so much more stable when you tune up. Wink
