I've got a feeling I'm out of my league here.  I play open chord for the most part acoustic from my kitchen...  I'm not studio, I sing poorly.  I think I'll listen in for a bit before I subject you to any of my music.

I've got a nasty feeling I'd be viewed as a troll here if I were to post... or at best have all hopes dashed!

Thanks for lightening the moment, Leigh.

Funny you say that.  On another forum I post my crappy music and great cooking!

If there is a 'general' type forum I'll have images of all possible foods from lobster, steaks, baked fish, soups, stews etc.

I'm just putzing about now trying to learn the ropes where to post and when.

Thanks deepsesh.  Well, I'm not sure you KNOW how much I stink.

When I figure out WHERE I should share my first song I'll message all those kind enough to post in this thread.

I've got my socks wet so far, and when I get hip deep is when I'll figure this site out and share as well as review.

Morgan.

Hi Morgan,

Welcome to TSF! Happy to have you here to join us! Plenty of range of talent on the forum so don't be shy. Many members like to write music but don't dare sing, etc. "Friday Night Open Mic" area might be a good place to post a first song.

Wow, thanks guys.  I'm starting to feel braver anyway.  Now I want to find a song of mine that is NOT too good but NOT too bad.  I don't want to post my best stuff right away, that will leave me with nothing.

I will participate in a Friday Night thing soon, but for now I'll post something else.

We'll see.

Thanks for the hello, all of you.

Ok, is it ok to use Youtube to share music here, or do you post raw some other way?

Phil, I watched your youtube video and you had me with....."Hello!" LOL  I laughed out loud when you said...last night  I started working on a new song and it really sounds.....well...like all my other songs! Been there, done that, BB!!!LOL I wrote a song out of frustration once because of not being able to write a song! I titled it 'Trying To Write A Song'  LOL Now here you are 'singing a song' that nobody is never going to hear because out of frustration, you threw it away! LOL  We songwriters can sometimes be a crazy bunch of folks....in the nicest sense of the word of course! :)

Welcome to the forum Phil, come on in and join in on all the fun we have here!:cool:

Hi and welcome.

You'll be surprised to learn that some of the most successful song writers today really used to "Suck" at one point. I was breast fed so I know I sucked.

Guess what else.

I have a song called "they tried to write a song".

I'll do it up and share.

Lyrics are as follows, being stolen from songs or referring to songs.

"They tried to write a song, a song like NO ONE ever had heard
but it sounded like Freebird
It was a little bit country
and a whole lot of ROCK AND ROLL!

Have you ever been over a friend's house to eat and the chicken ain't no good.

The macaroni soggy, the peas are mooshed and the chicken tastes like wood".

etc etc stealing lines from other music to a nice riff I forget now.  I'll put it together.

Morgan.

LOL Okay, you're starting to confuse me. Is your name Morgan or Phil? :? In your video you say, "Welcome to more of Phil in the kitchen!"  However, you've signed all your post as Morgan! Hey! I'm easily confused, so you can't do things like this to me! lol ;)

I'm going to assume 'Morgan' is your preference, so Morgan it is! lol :)

I have a silly name on chess site, and some one was unable to type my name so they started to call me Phil.

It stuck, since many of the songs I wrote were for or even about that chess site.

Just to clear things up more, my name isn't really BarButt either!

;)
