    When I'm not playing my 8 string, I'm playing an acoustic guitar and writing fingerstyle songs. Its easy to say that i listen to as much Andy Mckee as i listen to Meshuggah.:rolleyes: That being said, I'd love for any fellow fingerstyle lovers here on SS check out my compositions! Please tell me what you think!

    And anyone else who writes and records acoustic fingerstyle should share here too!:wavey:

    listening to your songs right now. im towards the end of the first one and i like it! i would love to be fluent in fingerstyle someday but i dont have an acoustic to work with.

    just curious, what tuning(s) did you use those these songs? im still searching for one that i really love. i still have to try DADGAD and then the full 5ths thing.

    have you heard of the artists Michael Mandrell or Erich Avinger? Those two and a few other classical players came to a small town near me several months ago and put on an amazing concert. I'd highly recommend checking out their stuff. this did this song at my show and i got it on video but the quality is better on this one. hope you like it.



    edit: i liked all 4 of your songs! im much more of a minorish key guy so vancouver and running water were my favorite two. :)

    SYLrules88, thanks so much! i'm glad you liked them, and that you appreciated the tonality of vancouver and running water especially.

    all 3 of the songs besides A Lark are in FACFCF tuning, and i believe vancouver is that with a capo on the first fret. i probably should remember that:lol: and a lark is in DADF#BD tuning.

    i've never heard of these 2 guitarists, but i'm happy that you've shown them to me now. i love true classical guitar like that, its great to see some genuinely talented guys in that field. i wish i could do PIMA style like that.

    LOL. I love how the "PIMA" abbreviation for classical fingering is also the abbreviation for "Pain in my Ass!!!" :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Great tunes, I loved them!! +1 for some killer fingerstyle!

    From an acoustic standpoint, I grew up on Hedges, Kottke, De Grassi, Ackerman, Renbourn, Klugh, Parkening, and anything else I could get my hands and ears on, the new guys are great too :)

    I've been loving ADADGAD on my acoustics lately :yesway:

    oh man, i LOVE dallas green. thats such a beautiful song. coming home is one of my favorite by him.

    ^so agreed. hahahaha...it is simply not an easy task. i'm proud of using my thumb heavily.:lol:
    thanks so much! i appreciate the compliments so much, especially from a michael hedges fan. :wavey: he was really a brilliant player and composer!

    ADADGAD? wicked awesome! seven string acoustic would be so awesome to try, do you like it? because now i want to play one very badly.:rolleyes:

    shadscbr, thats so cool! it mustve been a real thrill to see michael hedges live. if i could meet one dead person, he might be it. just to talk with him about music and hear him perform would be SO cool.

    i assume you may like andy mckee's music too, i just got to see him perform about a month ago and got to meet him afterwards. genuinely nice guy, he accepted a cd with my acoustic music on it too. hopefully he's had time to listen to it haha.

    WHOA. those are both incredibly beautiful. i'd love to try a guitar with one of those side-soundports, that would probably put songwriting in a whole new perspective to hear all the undertones brought out right in front of you with a whole new clearness. that beveled back corner of the kronbauer must be incredibly comfortable, do you like it?
    and i have a breedlove 12 string right now that i positively adore, i cant imagine playing a 7 string one. must be great:yesway: thanks for sharing those pictures!:wavey:

    +1 for McKee, did he play his fanned fret 7 string acoustic live?

    Maybe you will be part of Candyrat someday :yesway:

    The bevel is something that will be on every custom acoustic I order in the future. It feels better than I thought it would, and I had high expectations to begin with :)

    unfortunately, he did not, he started out with his 6 string multi-scale, then onto the harp guitar, then to his baritone. but i'd so love to see him play the 7 string. i actually didnt know he had one!:lol:

    and you think so man? thanks so much! i hope to be. it may be a long shot but with some hard work and determination etc etc...i can get there. haha

    but that bevel sounds sweet then:yesway: that way, you dont have to leave a stupid mark on your arm when youre done playing!:agreed:

    whoops, my bad on the Mckee 7 string. For some reason I thought his multiscale was a 7, i just youtube'd him, and it is a 6....doh!! :nuts:

    I guess I really wanted it to be 7 :)
