I have seen some of your other videos this one touched me more. Sailing and reggae music goes well together.

I really like bluegrass. I am not sure if Smacky's music is bluegrass or polka played on banjo and guitar. If you think bluegrass sounds the same how about rap. Imagine combining the two. You get Ganstagrass.

My musical taste is very eclectic. Just before my last sailing trip I discovered this video and showed it to my wife and we could not stop laughing. This got played or sung more than any other music over a two week sail.

Re: Best sailing music

I just finished recording From Russia With Love, using the built in recorder on my arranger keyboard, which I used when performing in the Florida keys last year. Difficult song to put together, especially when your lungs are shot to Hell. Here's my rendition. https://app.box.com/s/sg0fsz2z32xisjjvc17iwp0avpof959n


Enjoy,

Gary

Re: Best sailing music

The weather here in Maryland, today, has been downright nasty. Temperature is near 93 degrees f, humidity 71 percent, with a heat index of about 104 degrees f. Added to that is a code red air pollution alert, which means old farts, young children and individuals with lung conditions should stay indoors in air conditioned comfort, which I did because I fit in two of the three categories.

As the day progressed, I began to get bored and decided to sit down at my trusty Yamaha Keyboard and try to do an Eric Clapton song, Hoochie Coochie Man, which was featured in the movie Road House. It took a while to find a suitable style, and because of my nasty lung condition, I had to crank up the gain a bit on the mic, but it sounded OK so I decided to record it using the onboard recorder as a one shot deal.

The next time my son comes for a visit, I'll ask him to bring his guitar and we'll get some fantastic guitar licks in as well.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording this song, Hoochie Coochie Man

Re: Best sailing music

I'll play "Grinch" on this one. As a lifelong professional musician (whose father is also a lifelong professional musician), my favorite sailing music is wind, wave, and hull noise, period. Short story.. when I was a kid, my Dad and I use to go fishing in remote areas of Quebec for 10 days at a time, backwoods camping totally off the grid. The first couple times we went up, there were times we didn't see a human from the time we entered the preserve until we left it. Eventually, the reserve/park was "improved," you couldn't camp on the islands, had to camp in designated mainland areas, etc... more people, even RVs, . One time we were camping and another pair of guys set up camp a little ways away from us and cranked up their tunes around the campfire late at night. I went over, said Hi, offered'em some of our beers (Labatt back in those days... 70's?), and said something like, "Isn't it great to get away from it all.. work, etc., and just enjoy the great outdoors?" Of course, they enthusiastically agreed. Then I told them that music was my Dad and my work, sort of laughing about it. They were great.. I didn't even have to ask.. they turned it down, we enjoyed our beers, and a few days later when they got their boat trailer stuck Dad and I helped them get out. No worries.

But.. yeah. I love music (and, to be honest hate a lot of what passes for popular music) and totally understand why people like to keep it on in the background as sort of a "soundtrack" to their lives. For me, I listen so analytically to it even as I experience the emotional power of it that it blots out or dampens my experience of anythign else if it's on. I can't even hold a conversation sometimes, because my ear just automatically gravitates to figuring out chord changes, keys, problems in performances, fingerings, blah blah blah, and ignores whatever the person I'm talking to is saying.

Sooo... I'd rather enjoy sailing at the utmost than be distracted by anything other than the sounds produced by nature and the boat.

When NOT sailing but wishing I was, the following seems to capture the feel for me...

Stan Getz/Astrud Gilberto - Corcovado

Stan Getz - Manha de Carnival from "Big Band Bossa Nova"

Michael Franks - "Tahitian Moon"
