The Atlantic

June 30, 2006 4:44 PM

A quiet little sea shanty. Unless you turn up the volume, at which point it becomes a thunderingly loud sea shanty. It's good for when you need to psych yourself up to go hunt the whale-fishes.

I am going to mess those while-fishes up. Nice tune.

I know a sea-fairing fella who actually goes by Captain Geoff, (he's a real captain) and he's digs stuff like this, I can't wait to share! Also, beauty song, eh!

A fun listen. I like how it switches between quiet and louder parts, and I'm digging that bell-like tone.

Thanks, peeps! edlundart, that bell-like tone was actually just a beat-up Silvertone electrc guitar. I'm still not quite sure how I got it to sound like a bell.

Yeah, I though it had the attack of a guitar string! Nice.

Silvertone-Nice, I had one in the seventies-my first electric.

This song is lovely.... what other music do you do?

I liked it!

ph00dz, I tend not to record that much other music; I spend more time working on comics. However, I did post another very different kind of song on here yesterday: My Name Is Matt And I play Zelda. Mostly, if I'm playing music, I'm just sorta aimlessly plucking at my banjo.

By the way, snsranch, when I got my Silvertone from a guitarist friend of mine, my dad got really excited, 'cause it turns out that had been his first guitar, too. It seems to be a pretty excellent basic model.

I know this is way out of date as are most of my comments -- I keep hoping someone is coming up behind me on the listening curve on this.

I've got to say the more I hear this song, the more I dig it. Its hella goofy, yeah, but so loverly.
