Default 'Boar in the Moat' is an improvised polyphonic acoustic guitar solo



Starring: two boars, but one of them is playing a guitar.

Don't wanna be too critical, but in general solo improv a lot more fun to do than it is to watch. Since you're putting in so much effort to the presentation, why not some actual songs?

Thank you, foxAsteria! I upload an improvisation daily, this upload frequency wouldn't be possible with non-improvised, well rehearsed compositions, because it takes time to learn a tune. In my improvisations, I strive to play music that's melodic, tonal and song-like. Interestingly, when sometimes I don't mention that they are improvisations, there are people (some of them are musicians) who think they are compositions.

You can read more about my improvisation in the following interview: Free Improvisation Guitar – The Interview

I did many original (composed) songs as well, here's the latest solo guitar one:



I also composed and recorded fully arranged songs with drums, keyboards, guitars, bass (no kazoo though); for example:

I see, well that's of course a valid endeavor. I also thought about recording or livestreaming my whole songwriting process. Idk if that would be fun to watch. It's a long and slow process. But I guess you never know.

The truth is, the majority of people are not interested by default, and YT will not show it to masses until you seriously advertise it & buy tremendous amounts of traffic (views, comments, likes).

I have yet to seen a small channel without loads of paid traffic (like the usual tell-tale sign, the blatantly fake comments) to miraculously gain momentum. Going viral is a fairy tale.
