Linda Mielke

Retired high school teacher, with an interest in playing music that started in 2014 when I saw a group of seniors in a circle jam at the local community centre. I decided to join in and I bought a mandolin, and have been trying to play it since then. Mandolin is really my main instrument, but I do have a 5 string banjo and a kazoo for fun. I also started songwriting at the beginning of COVID to have something to challenge me during the isolation periods.
This is my second 50/90. I want to experiment and continue to learn new techniques. During 50/90 2021, I made a multiple track song, and I managed to use GarageBand during FAWM 2022. I have continued to experiment since with many new techniques.
I also quilt. A lot. I make quilting "How to videos" on YouTube.

Thanks a lot Linda :) Who knows if our songs become viral someday?

@nadine

Thank you, Linda! I just ranted and meant every word I wrote and sang xD

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks for your lovely comments on Fall With Me. I am so glad you like the lyrics. Florian was kind enough to collaborate on it with me. You can hear the song here if you wish: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/11586

[avatar]

Thx for your comments, funnily although I have played with half a dozen daws I've never really used garage band, yet I have an ipad with it on!

[avatar]

Hi Linda. Yes that's ok.

[avatar]

No they reclaimed Angkor Wat from the Jungle. No trains in Cambodia. Car or tuk tuk only 15 minutes from the town/city called Siem Reap. I did work over there so know it all every well.

[avatar]

I never made it to a play in Stratford while growing up in Ontario, though I wanted to.

[avatar]

Yeah, I think we've discovered the final 5090 site glitch... posting closed 1 day early! And I'm assuming it's a pretty easy code tweak to fix it but I don't have access to the code

[avatar]

Yes, of course, it's OK to post Gramma on your bandcamp page. Thank you for asking.

[avatar]
@yam655

Yes! Put "It's Waffle Time" on your Bandcamp page. Make lots of money from it. 💰

I use the Creative Commons Attribution license, so all I ask for is something like "Lyrics by Steven Black <https://yam655.com/>" in the Track Credits of the song. (With this license your _only_ requirement is attributing me. You can happily use whatever license you want, including traditional copyright.)

The attribution details are mentioned in the "After FAWM, how do you want to attribute me?" section of my profile. If you want to attribute me differently, that's cool, too. I provide the meaningful details there, and how you put them together is up to you.

It's possible I read the lyrics to "The Recommendation Thread" while working, because I'm think I didn't comment because I hadn't listened to it yet. I'll do that right after I deal with some kid stuff. 😀

[avatar]
@sunfire

Hi, Mandolinda - Sure that would be fine. Just make mention of me on the lyrical end.
: )

[avatar]

Hey, Linda, thx for the congrats on my message board for me reaching this 2022 50/90 50 lyric goal! Had fun doing so.

Kind of you to have checked out my other lyrics today and mention that you think them good. So thankful was I that earlier on in this yr's 50/90, you asked to put music and vocals to my "Still Quiet Moment" lyric. What a wonderful job you did on it with your mandolin and voice.

I'm both humbled and honored that you're asking me now to add my "Still Quiet Moment" lyric in song to your Bandcamp page, which you'll be updating in October 2022. Yes, you have my permission to do so. Thanks again!

[avatar]
@crisp1

That's totally fine, Linda. Thanks for the collabs and congratulations on a successful 50/90!

[avatar]
@andrea

Absolutely Linda. I can't believe it's been 10 weeks since our collaboration. Looks like you had a great 50/90. Hope you enjoy the last few days :)

[avatar]

Sure, Linda. Happy to have you put it on BandCamp. Let me know if you need anything from me.

[avatar]

Linda - Thanks so much for your rendition of Butter, Bourbon, and Bacon. I like the blues-y see-you-later feel.

[avatar]

Hi Linda,

Glad you liked my "Just One More". I don't generally use a metronome either. I have a drum machine on my little BOSS Micro BR80 eight-track recorder. I usually delete the drum track when I have recorded the instruments and vocals, but here I felt like it added more to the country swing feel.

My Harley Benton Electric Twelve String was incredible value for money. It was obviously designed as a copy of the famous Rickenbacker Twelve (as used by the Byrds) - but with a less crowded headstock. However, it is a sixth of the price of the original and to my ears at least, sounds just as good.

[avatar]

Oh, yes please. Have fun with the Butter Bourbon and Bacon song. Can’t wait to hear what you come up with.

[avatar]

Wow, Linda - Congratulations on writing so many wonderful songs and still finding time to listen and comment so much. Looking forward to listening to more of your Oeuvre.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

One of these will help a lot before: https://www.sweetwater.com/c394--Microphone_Pop_Filters
But after it's a matter of "volume automation" - look that up and add garageband to the search enquiery....
You see now why you uP made me jump up! :)
Hugs, my friend. I still can't believe what I heard on that song! Great job!

[avatar]

I just realized I didn't actually tell you what GYAWS stands for: "Get Your Ass Writing Songs."

[avatar]

Congrats on the 50 a fine 50/90 set

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on "Missing You." GYAWS is a super secret facebook group where we get a prompt/title 10 out of 11 weeks and write a song to it. It's been in decline of late but two or three of us are still going at it.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on "Spiral Staircase". Yes, I guess a basement would imply the same hassles. The space on that spiral staircase is so limited I doubt it could fit a chair lift, if I ever needed one. I only hope my partner's predictions on the matter never prove true.

[avatar]

Congrats on reaching over 50 songs!
Your question about my writing lyrics with a melody in mind. I would say it's more the rhythm in mind. Melody, of course has a rhythm and meter, and while most Tin Pan Alley songs usually kept to a strict rhyme and meter, I don't always latch onto that. Words naturally rise and fall in a melody as you speak them. If I write the lyrics first, I speak them aloud, and see how my words rise and fall as notes. I hope this makes some sense.

[avatar]

Thanks and they were black bears, and should be hibernating. It's got me puzzled.

[avatar]

Hello Linda, and thank you for reviewing "Where the Lonesome Cowboys Ride".

I'm already enjoying his latest show. Thanks!

Still a solid month + before we get any snow here! LOL (Best time of year to visit Manitoba is probably late May-mid June or September.)

[avatar]
@jtsteam

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad to hear you want to get a uke, although from experience I'll say it's hard to stop at one. I rather like this one's zingy sound (it's an Eden Origin tenor with a low G) but it's discontinued now.

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your comments, Linda. Both songs won't finish during 50/90 but the Quarterlife Blues will receive an update later this month. I'll tit for tat later, cause I'll be busy with mixing.

[avatar]

Linda , like most things experience plays a huge part, I have written probably 300 songs for people over the years. Generally I have listened or go and listen to a persons style before I collaborate so I can write to that style. Structure is very important and I have spent years studying different ones as some people respond better to different structures. So I do have a trick bag but mostly I actually try and write specifically for the person. Of course some artists you can just write anything and they can just do it like Marthie or Alex and a few more.

[avatar]

Thanks for all of your nice comments and your lovely and fun music! I enjoy 50/90 as well - less crazy than FAWM and somewhat fewer people - I Love FAWM but realize that there are many 100s of musicians that I don’t hear any of the music at all - crazy! I keep hearing new people on 50/90 but at least there are not so many pages of new songs to look through every day!

[avatar]

Hi Linda - My guitar is a Seagull S6 Original. I bought it a couple of years ago. I think I paid under $400. new at Guitar Center. I see they're more money now though. It's good lower end instrument at that price.

[avatar]

Wow! You're up to 46 songs already! Good for you! Thanks for your comments on I Call Myself a Gardener. So glad you enjoyed it. I thought @panch did a great job interpreting the lyrics. Thanks!

[avatar]
@roddy

You asked if I used a pick when playing the ukulele. I don't most of the uke players I know don't either but there are some that do, particularly for playing single note melodies, etc. I hardly use one on the guitar either. PS thanks for all your kind comments. You really are an inspiration in that you keep on learning new things. Good luck with your guitar quest.

[avatar]

🤣😂

[avatar]

Totally with you on the baleful effects on our young of so-called social media.

Here's a picture of the six string tenor
https://tinyurl.com/347whm59

It is tuned in four courses like an ordinary ukulele CGEA - but not all the strings are doubled or octaves (as they are on the eight string uke). The high A is doubled, the E is single, the G is doubled but in octaves and the C is single.

[avatar]

ha! Thanks for your ongoing comments and support. Yes, the combination of book titles from my bookshelf led to an uncharacteristically abstract lyric!

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on my song 'this is not a drill'. You asked about my instruments - I use Band-In-A-Box a lot and I used a style called "_BOWE110", which has a nice bowed bass, a fingered guitar, and a simple Nashville "Sidestick" drum track. I use my baritone uke for strummed rhythm and a lead riff.

[avatar]

a historian friend of mine who has moved into an assisted care facility has gifted his archives to the public library, where the material will be more accessible to the public than in a museum. so you might look into that possivility.

[avatar]

Thanks for the nice comment on my latest morph! Much appreciated!

[avatar]

Thank you so much, that was a beautiful word picture you painted for "Muses' Waltz"

[avatar]

Jonny Harris visited Manitou (10 km east of La Riviere) and did an episode of Still Standing about it (I know a number of people in the episode!). I don't think he'd do La Riviere as well. Not enough going on!

[avatar]
@wolfkier

Love your morph. You should probably include the morph genesis information
see my morph songpage for the format I cut / paste / and updated from gardeningangel1

[avatar]

"pull the ring and you're a caterpillar" I think I learnt about the Caterpillar CLub from Eagle magazine, late 1950s.

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment on the jigs. [Normally I'd try to return the listening compliment rather than this way but things are a mess] Much appreciated. That's so sad, the lost Irish navvies. I've just seen Ulster so I'll go and listen now while i can (got sidetracked reading the lyric to Halifax. I've been reading Churchill and Liddell Hart. Our families were airforce but Pacific War.)

[avatar]

most music, even the classical music, is based on three or four chords. some of chopins best music goes back and forth between two chords, chords are not important, oftentimes there is no need to change from one chord to another, it is melody, harmony, and counterpoint that make the song.

[avatar]
@wolfkier

Don't be rushed or pressured by that 2 day thing. Take as long as you like. Nobody's going to care either way. Have some fun... I did! :)

[avatar]

Hi, Linda. I just sent you a message through your Bandcamp site.

[avatar]

Hi Linda. 😊
Thank you for coming back for a listen.
The vocals are a Kontakt sampler library, and I think it's just nonsense syllables.
https://heavyocity.com/product/vocalise-3/
I layered them with a pad synth sound and just improvised a few chords.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on MoonSun. In this case I figured out the chords on guitar so the bass and other synths came from that. The drums were actually the very first thing.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you so much, Linda, for your kind and generous comments about Hot Chocolate.

[avatar]

Awwww…. That is really special! Thank you for bringing it to life so beautifully! I love it. Your vocals are always so spot on the the sweet melodies! Perfect!

[avatar]

and what is wrong with julie andrews? she was the queen of broadway, and i have spent many hours watching her and listening to her sing.

[avatar]

Seriously! I would love that!!! Thank you!

[avatar]
@wolfkier

Kind words indeed. Thank you. That's the hope. I'm getting closer.

[avatar]

Sweeeeeet! You've bowled me over, Linda, with your voice and mandolin play add to my "Still Quiet Moment" lyrics. I love how you breathed such wonderful song life into them! The strumming mandolin's rhythm is so perfectly delicate, true, and expressive and its sound goes so well with that crisp, clear lilt in your singing voice. How your vocal-music combination in this song goes straight to the heart--every step of the way--is amazing! You've made my lyrics even more meaningful by how you sang them with such a refreshing, timeless, melodious tone and I can't say enough how thankful I am for what you did. Truly a fantastic job! So glad to have collaborated with you on this one. Much thanks for having read my lyrics, settled on them, and asked about doing this. Quite ecstatic am I that we connected, so that with your talents you could bring about these lyrics the way in which you have done so magnificently.

@oswlek

Hi Linda, I wrote something to Doug's "Breaking Things" lyric before realizing you had already collabed with him on it. Do you have an objection to me sharing an alternate version? It's very different from yours, I assure you. 🙂

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on "Disrupted". I made a mistake leaving Horror Box on the liner notes. It wasn't used on that one. It was, however, used on this one: "Terminal".

@sunfire

Thanks for commenting on my take of "Before Completion". You ask what kind of music I had in mind? Well. To be honest. I didn't give the musical style much thought when I wrote this one. My version isn't a subject matter most would like to sing and perhaps for that reason i didn't give the music much thought when writing.
Maybe rock? Something alternative? Who knows.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment and question on Phone: OFF. I did play the guitar part. That's my main instrument. The drums for the verses were from a sample pack I downloaded. I imported the loops into my DAW (I use Reaper). The chorus drums I made up and entered as a MIDI track that triggers sample player. The bass is a made up MIDI track that triggers a synthesizer. And then I sang it over all that. Enjoy the rest of your super skirmish.

[avatar]

Much thanks, Linda, for reading and commenting on my "Still Quiet Moment" lyrics. Touched to hear that they spoke to you and so appreciate your offer to put them to music. I'd be just as happy to have you do so and look forward to you bringing that to light--mandolin alone, or along with any other instrument you play and see fit to use.

[avatar]
@candle

Hi Linda, thank you so much for the great comment on Slow Dance. I think I'd call it Instrumental Rock, but it certainly has some Grunge guitar tones. Not sure if that's enough to call it Grunge, tho… But Instrumental Grunge might work.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@andrea

Linda, you are growing in leaps and bounds. I am so impressed. When 50/90 is over I am going to take a look at garage band. I still want to learn guitar and am getting better, but garage band does so much. Keep having fun! Congrats on your accomplishments :)

@esc4p3

Thanks for your comments on my Surprise Symphony. No, I don't normally start with any images in my head, although they can develop as I create the track. This one was a bit sad from the off, so your feeling of a sad ending is probably justified :-) - I would like to develop music that goes with thoughts or ideas, but my creation process can be pretty random at times! But for this track, I'm happy to go with the loon swimming down the river....

@sunfire

Hey! Thanks for commenting on Looks Get Killed. Funny, but I could actually see flamenco dancing for this in some sort of video where someone innocent or naive charts uncharted territory and gets a crash course in life that plays out in more ways than one.

Go for it, Linda!

[avatar]

That is totally and deliciously dark and creepy and quirky and so much fun!!!

[avatar]

And by the way, grace is used in the lyric a couple of ways … grace as the word and Grace is also the name of the bride who married into this deranged disturbing muderous family - she is literally hunted for the kill during this night game and escapes…

[avatar]

Ha! Please! I would love that! I wouldn’t watch that movie either - the trailer was two minutes too much for my taste - but it was fun to write about and I look forward to your music!

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind comment!

I like where you took the lyrics for Wooden Leg Blues. Nicely done!

Linda, What a compliment on Broken! Thank you. I love the way David envisioned this lyric and how he produced it. Glad you did, too.

Wooden Leg Blues - go wild. Look forward to hearing the result.

Thank you so much for the great comment on my Halcyon Nights track. It was composed over a number of lunch ½ hours, but in general, composing things in Jeskola Buzz (or any Tracker user interface, really) is generally a lot quicker than the workflow offered by traditional DAWs. It was fun to put together & I am currently working on another "Lunchtime Track" that will hopefully be completed sometime this coming week…

See You In The Shadows…

I love your comment about the lyricists here. I’m so impressed by the way you are so eager to learn new things and taking on the challenges of a DAW. Way to go!
