2017 cars and Audio CDs - hmmm,... pt. 2: The attempts that failed: an adapter from the audio cd player to the phone, did not do anything. the phone may have a setting to transmit data from the headphone jack to a blue tooth device, but my ignorance is holding that option back - also, the thumb drive failed - because i loaded WAV files and the car doesn't see them, unless they are MP3, then, that did work, eventually - also, the cord i could not locate, a headphone tip to a USB tip, so can't just run the headphone out of the cd player and into the USB port.

However, i heard i can load a song i just made onto my phone, then transmit it via blue tooth and then download it to the computer to burn it then rip it to MP# then onto a t...
2017 cars and Audio CDs - hmmm,...: i bought a new car last week and my ability to enjoy the songs i make has been derailed. The car has no CD player, and i like hard copies of songs, you know? so i have a portable CD player, maybe i can use the headphone jack as an output and into my cell phone which will transmit the sound to the car's bluetooth system? maybe i can hook a USB to headphone adapter right from the portable CD player to the usb port?

i have loaded some songs onto a thumb drive and am planning on trying that tonight, in a few minutes, but choosing a track may not be doable.

Not sure how i will make this happen yet, but i will let you all know if and when i get to hear one of the songs Dave and I make on m...
A sculptor's theme and paraphrasing James Brown.: so that's what we did! Last entry i figured we'd be adding guitars and vocals to the new tune, and it came to be. so after i added a track of guitar with chicken scratch alternating with some soft wah chording while Dave played a new Moog synth he purchased, a hand-held job with lovely sounds. Dave set up his guitar rig and my vocal mic, as i scribbled lyrics frantically. This tune is funky, and Dave and i both wanted funky lyrics. so i searched google for James Brown song titles. I stumbled on one i am not familiar with called Make it Funky. Now i think i've heard it, but can't rattle off a line with confidence. so as i read the lyrics, i saw "what's it ever" in the first line, and i had ha
round 3 of songbuilding - is this what F. Lloyd Wright did?: Heading over to work on a song some more. We started this one in a twenty minute spontaneous combustion of improvisation a week ago. we had just mastered the song before this one and with a few minutes left, i asked Dave to record us jamming.
Well, that set of tracks held some inspiration but little else - my basswork was timid throughout, which i find difficult to enjoy, so we saved those track version and went at it again last thursday. The drum and bass track came together quickly which led us to the next bits, which i was jonesin' for some synth fun, and Dave worked a percussion track. In the first decent take, Dave had sung, which is uncommon - so i wanted to use it, but my bass was s...

Eric, thank you for the comment on the video!

Also I just noticed your message about the forum - it died on Soundclick but Larry Ludwick resurrected it elsewhere.

Just when I find some good folk in a forum, the forum has been discontinued. Alisha, d.bill, and Daniel and so many good people, best wishes to you all, eternally!

I uploaded a new song last week and plan to upload some older stuff soon. The songs are often collaborative efforts with Dave DeVore, but the new one is a solo effort. This new song features a theremine and an Epiphone Dot Deluxe, a Fender Vibro-Champ, Shure's sm-58, a big muff pedal and a Tascam dp-004.
