Blue (Spoken word with guitar)

Spoken word!!!!!!

Blue (Spoken word with guitar)

Guys, this is me playing my own guitar and reciting poetry. I can do both! I’m terrible at both!! But I do promise to bring you some more real guitar playing with my spoken word in the future!!! I need a band so I can focus on performing the vocals for you- which is why I use GarageBand – because it’s terribly hard to play the guitar and to perform at the same time, at least for me! I hear you, you say ‘practice practice practice’ but then stage fright kicks in and let me just say it’s easier if I can just focus on performing! I also took Drama 1 and 2 in High School, have done minor acting roles, I dig improv so much, but I don’t know if I could ever do it like Jim Morrison did it. He had stage fright too. Which is why sometimes he would close his eyes or turn around. “Turn the fucking lights down” (because he didn’t want to see his audience).

I LOVE GUITAR. My depression and health issues keep me from playing (I won’t tell you how old I am, but somewhere like 420 years aged). My bones hurt everywhere. πŸ™‚

If I can keep the support rolling in, I’m ready to move into making spoken word video. Everything I do is time consuming and you don’t see the creation process.

Anyway, I recorded this little piece for my muse last year, I probably haven’t improved much in the guitar area. I do not record from my squeaky chair though and this was live from my squeaky chair and recorded from my crappy cellphone. πŸ™‚

I’ve been songwriting a lot lately though which means I need my hands on my guitar. πŸ™‚

  1. It was nice listening to your voice with guitar….you must do it more….beautiful voice & lines….true, practice will help you improve….we all need to practice in whatever thing we do….a suggestion – try HT recorder app, it’s amazing in recording voice….it’s capable of recording from “far far away” as well…I use it every time I need to record something…keep expressing yourself….

  2. Thank you Navin. I use GarageBand, a microphone, and an amp now to do my pro recordings. This was a little thing I did last year in the middle of the night if I recall… I was using Tuners to practice performing for people and getting feedback. I think it helped. I’ve got other poems up on my radio Tuners account too. It was kind of like a living journal for me. πŸ™‚

  4. I’m getting better! I’ve had more practice because I also added a tier to my Patreon account a few months ago and have been getting good feedback there. I’ll be going live on Twitch to recite poetry soon. Everything I do is helping me grow as an artist. I think my self-esteem is improving from the good feedback as well. 😊
