firth5a: Was there a Hammond organ in there? Really liked the solo, but the song seems to be missing somethin...

Richie Isaacs - My work here is just me having fun with music,trying out ideas and letting my crazy inner voice play with a sharpened plastic spork.
I actually work best in a band scenario and is normally what I do,this stuff here is me having a bit of fun outside of my normal setting...also,if my cloning machine didn't look like a sheet hastily taped over a broken wardrobe with an old bike lamp tied on I'd clone my own band.

I, as many others, am in awe of your playing. But don't you want to be the Beatles? I mean composition and studio trickery? I have always wanted to do it all. Even the art work on the cover. It pisses me off to hear true musical talents such as yourself (and Aaron) with so much raw talent not endeavor towards the complete package. Its easy easy. YOu give us great playing. Please give us great art.

I'm the guy the songwriters bring in for a session (as you and Lynda have done) have already done) and that is what makes me happiest, I am never truly happy unless my guitar is close by...those little beauties are two of the few consistencies I have in life and I do love to share what I make.
Thanks brother, and again thanks for letting me on one of your tracks (you made me sound good!)

just stopping by for another listen. interesting comment by IE there. not sure if i fully agree with it, but it does ring true in that your stuff makes me rethink the conclusions i've drawn regarding performance vs. songwriting. i typically lean heavily in favor of songwriting, but your performances remind me that musical magic can be conjured through a great performance too.

Oh hell yeah brother, cheese is GOOD(I actually debated whether to put that in or not, that's why there's a little bit of a gap before I hit it, oh hell, all life needs cheese!)

you're so talented you've re-awakened my a love for the guitar; a love i thought had long grown stale. tasty noodles... that last harmonic, though, sounds like something i would have done, so kind of cheesy there... but, hey, like any 4 year old will tell you, cheese tastes good with noodles : )

You could have recorded this on an answering machine and your voice would have still shined. Sure, some of this noodling is just that, but this is a full meal unto itself.

This was the second or third thing I ever recorded,before I got the gist of recording volumes,room noise etc,there's one ditty that has a heating fan in the background and one even has a microwave ovens buttons being pressed in the background.
The bulk of my work on here are just ideas,feelings and experiments cos when I'm playing out there in the bad old lets-you-down world I am mainly background backing music..in here I get to shine a little...I don't put em up for feedback,which is greatly appreciated but very politely ignored,I put them up to share with you all. :)
Am gonna remove this profile soon and,once my upside down world comes right,post solely under my own name.

Yes, that low freq really does jam up the recording. Great playing ability, just have to apply that attention to detail toward the mixing portion.

You probably did all this in two takes, too, right?
I just took my guitars down to the pawn shop.
My wife thanks you.

I thought it was the horse breathing, Richie. But it's impressive and incredible playing again. And I don't mean solely the virtuosity, but especially the mood you're creating. I just wished it was a bigger piece

Please apply eq to roll off that low frequency rumble and the guitar playing can be appreciated. It's not a tire, it's the whole damn truck.

I am playing this through some old Fisher speakers with those big bassy 12s that only sound great when you EQ the heck out of them and it sounds like a concert hall with a lot of natural ambiance. Richie plays great. I would like to hear him in one of the concert series' that they have in my town

Your skill is unquestionable, and I've admired everything I've heard of yours, but I can't help but desire that you work these amazing guitar tracks into a larger song. Come on, Richie, flesh these out!!

All comments typed with love, of course.
