Well ... the ole porch is filling up. Don't matter, there's plenty more chairs out back and beers are in the fridge. I've created a few lists under 'collaboration' tab. If anyone has a song, for which they are looking for musicians, feel free to link it to any of these lists. I plan on building a directory of talent that fits into these porch-like categories. I'll kick it off. All you have to do is submit your own details and we'll see if we can build something special here.

When we get a couple more 'instrumentalist' members I'm considering starting up a 'porch' project. I would kick it off with, say, a simple guitar chord pattern and then hope each member would add on to it. Sound like a plan? Any of you words-men like to come up with a Front Porch theme song?

Here is something from my neck of the world. Tamburitza band "Gazde" (The Bosses) featuring late Neven Mijac, an extraordinary harmonica player in very interesting cross-over between Eastern Croatia folk/bluegrass/rock/blues. Great combination of traditional acoustic instruments and modern production. The song title is "It will be better".

HEY ALL -a newer member (been here a couple of months) wrote some great holiday lyrics. I wrote music and whipped up a demo. Tried for something Christmas sounding but not the normal same old same old stuff... not sure if its good or not. (and disclaimer: sang the scratch vocal while sick, don't judge!) But I really want to get some guitars/mando, something with strings on it, to see where it could go and hopefully to where it could wrap up in time to get it out there this year. There is a chord chart/arrangement uploaded. PLEASE and THANK YOU.

Hi guys, After more than 20 years of neglecting my primary instrument on which I acquired my classical music education, I finally decided to return to the violin. Since my old acoustic violin was completely deformed, I decided to buy an electric violin so that the neighbors wouldn?t complain: ?Who?s beating the cat?? There was a good opportunity on eBay and got the violin from Germany. Hand made beast with active pickup and 4-band eqalizer...not an ole porch fiddle, but nowadays, with digital modeling, it can sound almost acoustic. And now, back to basics (was my bow grip Franco-Belgian or Russian? I forgot). Empty strings first...scales in first position...and so on. Maybe I'll be able to play some decent improvisation after five, six months. Damned...and I used to play Grappelli hot jazz pieces...once.

This is just an informal observation from a newb here at Kompoz... I'm very much an amateur musician and have collaborated on only a few projects so far. I have two things to request: #1.) Can composers please add their songs chord progression or at least the songs key? #2.) Please resist the temptation to over-edit the music. My opinion is that songs can quickly lose their feeling or impact from over dubbing. I'm just sayen

Looking to make this an instrumental if possible. Hopefully there are some acoustic instrument players out there willing to jump in. Hope you like it!

Sorry it's been a while since I posted anything to my group. Maybe some of you would be interested in this Trad song. I wanted to do this version myself but what I've done is also to open it up for spin-offs. If any of you Trad players fancies doing something with it just take it for a spin. No need to ask permission. Just let me know. I've uploaded all seps along with a basic bed-track for you to start with. Have fun.

'Evening on the porch I'm looking to get this one re-recorded with real Guitars, banjos, mandos, dobros, fiddles or whatever you guys got laying around. Also some new vocal would be most welcome ;-)
