Sing me a Song (free download)

Today I’ve recorded “Sing Me A Song”, a free song available on SoundCloud (and Audiomack also soon) in my studio. It’s less than two minutes(!) and the full lyrics are included at soundcloud. I’ve posted a short demo of it before. Including a video.

The song was recorded using Ardour Studio (here’s a video about the small and low budget studio I operate) and for the acoustic guitar I’ve used my Washburn guitar. For recording this great acoustic guitar I’ve used a (very) cheap Chinese pickup I’ve bought some time ago (video/demo). I also added a condenser mic in front of it, so it’s got two sound sources in the recording giving it more depth and ‘space’.

For drums and bass I’ve used my Digitech Trio pedal and finaclly the electric guitar is my Fender “Starcaster” Stratocaster on rhythm and lead guitar. For this guitar I used the JoYo “American” pedal. A superb pedal that works very nice with Fender guitars but also with my Gretsch of course.

Finally I recorded the vocals using my BM-800 mic. One of the best condenser mic’s you can get for the money, paid less than $20 dollar for it!

Sing Me A Song (acoustic demo)

Today I felt inspired to do a short acoustic song. Instead of recording a full version in the studio, I recorded a (demo) version on video. It’s available on Youtube.

I’ve recorded it using my Sony Cybershot camera and afterwards did some minor editing using Sony Movie Studio. Some compression added on the audio but other than that, it’s as it is. Just a live demorecording, recorded in one take in my living room.

Feel free to share if you like it or perhaps give it a ‘thumbs up’ on Youtube.

Hey Singer, Sing me a song
Hey Singer, don’t make it too long
I want a sweet song,
I want a short song,
I want a love song

Hey Poet, Write me some lines
Hey Poet, and make it divines
I want some sweet lines,
I want some short lines,
I want them to be mine

Hey Painter, paint me a cart
Hey Painter, make sure it’s art,
I want some sweet lines,
I want colorful lines,
It has to be refined

Hey Singer, Sing me a song
Hey Singer, don’t make too it long
