I didn't see any other thread of this sort, so I shall make one. I'm sure given the multitude of people here with decent tastes in music there are at least a few of you who record things from time to time. Use this to post covers and original stuff you've churned out lately.

I recently learned to play Eli, The Barrow Boy by The Decemberists, and I like it, so I recorded it. It's nothing to brag about, but it's as good as anything else I can play probably. There is horrible feedback though - nothing I can do about that.

Eli, The Barrow Boy

I've grown so accustom to keeping my voice down so as not to piss off my neighbors that I think I've lost all concept of actually projecting it. The guitar is a little bit out of tune probably. It's the only instrument I've ever seen that somehow goes sharp instead of flat, and it does so in about a half hour's time because it's an ancient piece of junk. My good guitar is about 2000 miles away and I picked this one up used for $20. :)

Err... Distorted Vocals = not sexy.

I want to hear Ceraziefish's angelic voice devoid of these techno alterations damnit!

I like distorted vocals... I don't really listen to techno, much, the only place I've heard distorted vocals is in noise bands like Lightning Bolt or Parts and Labor.

I'll upload a clean version at some point; I have to go through and do some shit with the recording program and I need to get back to writing my paper.

EDIT: Here it is. I really don't like it as much, but for those of you who fear technology out there, here it is, no electronic interference (besides the recording, that is).

My voice is kinda gay in it, but this is a blues improv I recorded:

but this is not the best of my blues stuff, cause the recording sucks.

for my usual blues stuff I make my voice deeper, but this is just me.

it's a random beat hooker kind of thing.

I wish I knew how to play guitar in that style better.

Your mic is fucked, though D: I'm sure you know that, though. But it is still nice.

*Shameless self promotion*

I figured this would be another op to post the only song my band has recorded for our EP so far.

Book of the Living- Molten Centrifuge

Derek- Lead Guitar (and on bass for this recording)

Me- Rhythm Guitar

Scott- Drums

I may have said that before, but I think that's a pretty good song. I am sporting it on my iPod.

Juxtapose; I just posted my goddamn singing, and I hate my voice. Suck it up. :P At least you probably have a half-decent voice.

You have no idea how awesome of a feeling that gave me and the rest of the band. :D

Hello, I hail from ffgurus but decided to follow Shad4k into this thread and post my newly recorded album! It is all completely done by me, and as such the quality is not the best quality ever to be heard.

That is the entire album. It is a concept album about the apocalypse via meteor. :o

Also, on my horrible horrible site (www.ajoviannight.com) there are links to each individual track for those who might just want to listen to a track or two.
