Is there a thread for those who make music? I couldn't find one but I'm pretty sure there was one somewhere.
I used to record my own songs and had a Myspace (!) music page to showcase them but I don't play any instruments (other than a little bit of drums) but I do sing and I was wondering if there's a good way to experiment with making music on my computer using loops or royalty free samples?
It's always nice to be noticed by bands/singers on Instagram. The band America has been liking my posts with their albums and Dent May liked and re-grammed my post today where I named his Late Checkout my #10 album of last year.
We're experiencing a crazy storm here in Sacramento. Rain and wind started around 7 pm. Wind gusts are consistent and up to 60 MPH. The power went off here almost an hour ago and there are thousands without power across the city.
Going to take an overnight trip to the Bay Area on Saturday to celebrate my birthday on Sunday. I haven't been down to Oakland in quite awhile but I really want to visit some of my favorite record stores while I'm there (1-2-3-4 Go!, Contact, and Econo Jam, plus Amoeba in Berkeley).
I know this is something that @Lee Newman has been doing, but I was thinking of starting an alphabetical play-through of our record collection and posting it on Instagram. It would take a long time though.
Somebody wrote me on Discogs asking if I was willing to sell one of my records and now I'm considering it. That's never happened before. Would I still have to list it or could I just sell it to him privately.
