Thanks guys. PianoJungle was thinking about Banjo as well. They got those guitar/banjo things but I would probably get the real deal if I was going to get one.
Jhunger thanks for chiming in, I think of you as the acoustic instrument artist here on audiojungle, was hoping for some advice from you. Thanks for the mic tip. It would be nice to have a authentically made Ukulele from one of the islands, probably could find some cool hidden gem if you go there. Ill probably grab a tenor soon, was thinking the fender one since thats only name Im familiar with but will now check into the companies you mentioned.
If you guys care I found a great player on itunes named Jake Shimabukuro, and he is really good, probably going to buy some of his stuff. Not really pop style but really good authentic Ukulele playing. Oh and PianoJungle I have the Mumford album, it is great.
Hey guys, Just broke down and bought myself a Ukulele. Fender Mino Aka, just used it on my new A.J. track. Just wondering what some of you use?, what size is the best for you?. Mine is a concert size.
Really find playing a new type of instrument has brought on new inspiration. I will probably try something new soon like mandolin or something. Sometimes writing things that would sound boring and overdone on guitar can have new life and feel with new instrument.
Also can anyone suggest a good artist that uses almost exclusively the Ukulele in more of a pop style, kind of like eddie vedder’s new album but better and more legit.
Welcome. Nice music, I really like “The Wanderer” great production on it.
Great! Nice video that guy made with your music, they go well together.
Congrats Sky, well deserved for sure!
I use Sample Tank XL, but not too much anymore, recently got Komplete bundle. Although IK seems easier on the cpu. I use T-Racks for mastering.
Song and video were amazing together!!
Yep, I’m using the ref links as standard, but yet to have any direct referrals off these. However, I can still see that people are visiting the links, and I often get personal feedback. I only started towards the end of March, so still early days really to see if the referral program is effective.
I’ve read quite a few posts however, that it’s not that effective for people on AJ, for whatever reason. (Themeforest referrals seems to be through the roof, presumably because their work is often featured on blogs, etc)Either way, I’m not overly concerned with this, because as I mentioned earlier, I’m really using Twitter as a form of networking rather than solely as a sales catcher, if you know what I mean.
Gotcha!! When it comes down to it, just writing great music and uploading only quality work is the real sale maker. Looks like your off to a great start, good luck!!
AlumoAudio I completely agree that in this day in age social media is a big deal if used right. Im not saying to abandon twitter, just isn’t working for me at this stage. I would like to build a nice buyer base of followers at some point where it would be more effective when I send out a tweet notification of a new release.
Also your right the spam tweeting is out of control, and when doing person to person sales its always important to build a relationship with your potential buyers thats why tweeting things other then promos is good. Tim does a good job balancing between promo’s, personal info, and things like inspirational quotes. (sorry to keep using tim as Ex. but lets face it he has mastered the promo game)
AlumoAudio I don’t see a referral badge, are you using referral links on your tweets, if not try it, it would help you see if the tweets were working.
