    Yes, my husband and I use a Sennheiser E835 for our home recordings. I can't tell you why it in particular is a better choice over others, other than it comes recommended by sound engineers we know. When I get around to uploading some of our home recordings, I will link them to you. All the stuff I have uploaded atm is either done professionally or with my iPhone voice memo app.

    I absolutely love singing, and I'm in my school chamber choir. I really want to learn piano or guitar though, but lessons are too expensive :/

    Guitar is very easy to learn with no lessons if you are motivated. I learned by buying a chord chart book and playing songs I was listening to at the time. If you ever get a guitar, let me know. I can help you learn to play a song fairly early on. Unless you want to know lead guitar. Then that will take a long time! But if you're happy to just learn how to play the chords and have your voice carry the song, I can help you with that.

    I often wish that I had done drugs in the '70s. At least there'd be a reason for the flashbacks. - Rick the Runesinger

    I agree! In the 70's we all carried guitars around and wanted to be the next Joan Baez or Carole King. (LOL) The basics are super-easy to learn on your own.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    hehe ^.^ I probably would have been a beatnik in the day. Or a beatnik-Jesus freak. If they existed.

    Also... I found this today!
    how to become a better musician It is written by someone from Hillsong, (whose name I do not recognise) so be forewarned if they're not your jive. Whether you like them or not, they are masters in their field.

    My favourite one was 'Be Generous.' That's at times really hard for me to do. I find it so hard to commit to a roster and/or time and a place. I am a miser with my time and don't like giving it up. It reminded me some things are worth sacrificing a little immediate self-comfort for bigger picture pay-offs. And anyway, music is one of those things that becomes more powerful when it's shared around. ...I feel like I understand the Jesus feeds 5000 story now.

    If anyone finds any good ones, post em up! I have access to some subscription based stuff which is excellent, but I find YouTube is just absolutely flooded with guitar lessons and a lot of it is really boring and too much talky. So yea, if you find a good one, we wanna know!
