Calling all Youtubers!

I'm looking to put some more videos on Youtube and I thought it might work if I had some requests!

It will make me do songs that I would never usually do..plus you get to have your favourites strangled by yours truly!!!! Serious requests only though :-)

If you search on "beerfordolphins" you can have a look at what I have done so far...comments welcome :-)

Good voice, good picking, keep it up.

What are you using to record the guitar & vocals? Also what guitar(s) have you got?

I have a Rickenbacker 330 fireglow (1993) and a Yamaha something or other electro.

Next purchase will be a strat I think.

Used to have quite a few guitars knocking about but i have cut it right down to a cheap bass, Burns Brian May, Fender deluxe American strat and a Maton EGB808 performer (the acoustic).

Recorded just straight into a cheap Behringer condenser into Pro-Tools LE with a touch of reverb.

...and they sound better if you turn them up!

Ricard00 Posted on 26/03/2008 10:42
Calling all Youtubers!

Work on my own so the sounds always up.

I've had alot of guitars over the years but there comes a time (with families and sutff) to cut down.

You look vaguely familiar, have you been in bands locally?

Just watched a couple there, the Damien Rice one and the Pink one, Excellent voice. You should do We Shall Overcome, and you can be the official unofficial voice of the Boro anthem.

Calling all Youtubers!

Although written by the outstanding Patty Griffin, and covered here by the Dixie Chicks, this song is actually sung from the viewpoint of an old man reflecting upon how he might have done better as a father.

Or for a funny song about death and spite...(ignor the first 10 seconds).

Calling all Youtubers!

another brilliant song!!!...number two! (the Patty Griffin one..going to listen to the other in a minute!)

I would have probably never, ever heard this song...cheers Borolad.

As for "We can overcome"...the only thing with that, is that there really is not a lot too it, unless there are other verses (and other musical bits) that I don't know about.

Really enjoyed those, matey.

Incidentally, don't suppose you noticed our posters up alongside one another the other week at the Glendale Social in Houghton? [:)]

Think you were on the night before me.

I'd love to hear you do David Gray's 'Be Mine'. Love that song, but it's one of the lesser played ones. Think you'd do it a bomb!

buttermyarse Posted on 26/03/2008 11:50
Calling all Youtubers!

Thats great mate.. I am very jealous..how long have you been playing/performing?... My favourite acoustic song is Small World by Roddy Frame..Dont suppose you could put that up on youtube?

Ricard00 Posted on 26/03/2008 11:56
Calling all Youtubers!

What about either Dedicated Follower of Fashion or Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks?

English Rose by the JAM.

beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 11:58
Calling all Youtubers!

bugger...I didn't notice Curly!!! what was the name again..its a duo isn't it?

Hope you had your liability Insurance :-)

As for David Grey....why not!!! good song...number three!


beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 12:02
Calling all Youtubers!

English Rose...yes..number four!

Small world..what a brilliant song, never heard it before. Number 5!

...think I'll go for 10 then stop. I can always put the request out another time

MsCurly Posted on 26/03/2008 12:03
Calling all Youtubers!

I didn't as it happens...Bob made me text it to him the next day. [:D]

Was telling me that you'd had some gobby wench in the audience at the end of the night being a bit lippy.

Got his life story that night. [:(]

He also told me that he noticed I wasn't wearing a wedding ring. [:D] Good grief!

beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 12:05
Calling all Youtubers!

to answer a couple of questions from earlier...I have only ever been in a couple of club bands and I do the Workies on a weekend now solo. Have been playing the guitar for ages but tended towards the metal side of things when I was younger. Trying to concentrate on acoustic stuff now...cheers

Don't fancy a duo do you, beer?

I'm not digging solo at all. [:(]

beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 12:10
Calling all Youtubers!

Good job you texted it..his book has a few black marks for those sinners who don't have it!!

I can't remember me getting any stick..not more than usual..but he was getting some lip at the end of the night as he was trying to get people out..

...did he serenade you with "Faithfully" and "Don't stop believin"??

buttermyarse Posted on 26/03/2008 12:11
Calling all Youtubers!

How longs ages...?.. been attempting to learn acoustic for a couple of years but is slow going..

beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 12:14
Calling all Youtubers!

oooooh....I like the solo thing. I can pull gigs when I need to and it gives me a bit more freedom, which is why i got out of the whole band thing.

If you ever want to get together for a daft laugh doing some acoustic stuff I game!

beerfordolphins Posted on 26/03/2008 12:18
Calling all Youtubers!

ok Towell...Know your enemy...number 6!!! I'll have to change it a bit though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Butter...ages is about 20 odd years playing guitar...

This is a great song. Performed with piano, butwould work great as an acoustic number.
