SEEKINGBand to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
Guitarist/Songwriter, not looking to "join" a band, but rather to START a band. Only takes one other person to get the ball rolling on this, be they a drummer, bassist, or keyboardist.
I'm big on sharing digital musical resumés (i.e. , be, , etc.) before we meet up, to save everybody time and know that we're on a similar page musically. I already have many self-produced songs "released" across all streaming services, and many playthroughs of said music on my be. I would want to incorporate at least a select few of these already-written songs of mine, but would be very open to hearing a real professional bassists' take on the bass lines, a real professional drummer's take on the drum parts, and let them rewrite as they see fit.

Here, I've got my Ibanez BTB going through a Darkglass B7K Ultra and an MXR Analog Chorus. Very low gain with high blend on the Darkglass, with a touch of that chorus to lift the harmonics.

"In The Beginning" 2.0
"In The Beginning" 2.0This is an ode to the chaotic and harmonious destructive & integrative energies which formed our cosmos, and still dance around us today. This track used to be called "Wreckognize", but apparently there's some pretty famous rapper named "Wreckonize", so this track was beckoning for a re-titling... and a re-mastering!
"Gehika" Naruto Shippuden METAL COVER

Modern MindsA re-recording and rearranged version of my first ever recorded song. A progfest for those who dig. Enjoy :) Available for FREE download in MUCH better (lossless) audio quality on my bandcamp - https://christopherharv.bandcamp.com/track/modern-minds Please excuse the strange phase issue on the cymbals. It only happens after uploading to this website. That being said, I am still grateful this site can help this music reach people who might otherwise never hear it.

My Guest Solo on Remstage's "Æther"
My Guest Solo on Remstage's "Æther"Some groovy feel-good metal here, beat REMSTAGE to the punch for uploading his track on here. Watch the guitar Playthru of this solo on my youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdpbwCcdIR4 All musical credits, minus the writing and performance of the guitar solo, goes to REMSTAGE! He's the man. This is not the whole song, you'll have to check his youtube or bandcamp for that.
"Lights Out" by Future World Music - Epic Guitar Cover
"Lights Out" by Future World Music - Epic Guitar CoverI pay homage to the brilliant composition of Aram Mandossian in a way that suits me best - heavy focus on both acoustic and electric guitars. I've also thrown in a sampled drum kit (Superior Drummer) for the main epic passage in the middle to accompany the deep riffage, dreamy overdriven octaves, and the rippin' guitar solo. First time using a condenser on an acoustic (long overdue) First time using this Universal Audio 710 "Twinfinity" Preamp for the SM57 on my Rectifier. First time for many things. I feel this to be the spring of my youth as a home-recorder. I am very stoked to share this with the kindred. Warm regards, namasté, peace, and love :) ~ Chris
"New Beginnings" Future World Music - Epic guitar-focused Cover
"New Beginnings" Future World Music - Epic guitar-focused CoverAn enticing realm of fantasy and earthliness as laid down by none other than Future World Music. I pay homage to their epicness by covering the guitar part of their original "New Beginnings" in my own unique way, and then adding on a solo and extra layers of guitar. I got a lot of positive feedback on my youtube when I uploaded a much cruder camera-audio recorded version of this a few years ago, and I myself absolutely loved it as well, so I figured why not release an updated version that's nicer on the ears? Enjoy :)
"Abundance of Harmony" - An Epic Guitar Looping (with the Gretsch G5622T)
"Abundance of Harmony" - An Epic Guitar Looping (with the Gretsch G5622T)Check out the performance on my youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkJ-PWWBN-Y These harmonizing chord progressions and melodies show how is unique guitar handles chorus, delay, looping, and reverb through a crystal-clean amplifier setting. I am very thrilled with this clean tone I am able to produce... to me it sounds literally of crystals, it blows me away. I also must thank the Ernie Ball Expression Delay, MXR Analog Chorus, the TC Ditto Looper, and the plug-in from FabFilter called Pro-R - their PHENOMENAL reverb plugin. The strings are Ernie Ball "Classic Rock" Pure Nickel strings, so as to strike a reasonable balance between brightness and warmth. And the amplifier is a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (surprisingly great clean channel) through a Friedman Brown Eye 4x12 Cab (with the Celestion Greenback speaker miked with a Shure SM57, ran through the tube preamp of the PreSonus "Studio Channel.") This main progression is from Future World Music's "New Beginnings." The progression they wrote is the one I play second, the progression which turns what I first play from single chords into harmonized chords. I simply created 3 other chord progressions to harmonize on the original chord progression and create this surreal atmosphere of ambient tranquility. The melody is also from that piece. A full guitar-focused cover of "New Beginnings" is very much in the works and should be up in no longer than two weeks. This is a single mono track. I've used a stereo-width enhancer to help it appear grander and more full in the stereo image.
"Conqueror" by Remstage, Guest Solo by Har V
"Conqueror" by Remstage, Guest Solo by Har VA guest solo I did for Remstage's track "Conqueror". The whole track is very fucking cool tho, i reposted it not too long ago so it should be the next track down on my page. Check it out!
"Oblivion" M83 - Outro Cover/Duet
"Oblivion" M83 - Outro Cover/DuetI've grown so infatuated with this outro from M83's original piece, "Oblivion", that I decided to turn it from a solo into a duet - M83 on piano and yours truly on the electric guitar. Enjoy :)
Underground Djazz Prog-Metal - "The Human Way" Original
Underground Djazz Prog-Metal - "The Human Way" OriginalFrom thrashy prog, to jazz fusion-metal, to soft calssical guitars in harmony... a lot of ground is covered here, in what I feel is a pretty tasteful way. Check out the guitar playthru on my youtube! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEdPA_y7rWQ&feature=youtu.be Download for FREE on my bandcamp :) - https://christopherharv.bandcamp.com/releases Only Guitar, Bass, and Drums here, as the piece is meant to be. For now, at least... I've got my Agile Guitars for all the high-gain riffage, and the main moderate-gain lead progression in the chorus. Then I've got my Gretsch Semi-hollow on cleans and all other moderate-gain. It's about time somebody introduced semi-hollow guitars into this genre!! They're magnificent. They would not be my ideal live primary guitar, but in the studio here they are just superior for clean tones, in my eyes... Mesa Boogie JP-2C with Orange 2x12 cab mic'd up with a Sennheiser e609 this time... i'm unShure wether to keep on with this one or to just stick with ol reliable ;) The Bass is the biggest improvement here, imo. Not so much in mixing, realized i still need A LOT more practice in mixing bass frequencies together, very tricky bidniss.... but moreso in the presence and performance. It's my Brice 7-string passive Bass. Cool this about this guy is it's holding up an F0! Yup. Very sub-hearing, but hey, i see it as an organic way to generate those deep DEEP sub-bass frequencies. The F0's fundamental resonance is about 17Hz. Which is badass. With guitar over it ,and the harmonic resonance of the note, it sits in a mix pretty decently. (Moreso if u got a sub, or some quality headphones ;) )! Stoked on this one, especially the acoustic outro! Enjoy :)
"Fallen Friends" - Original from Shlar/Christopher Harvey
"Fallen Friends" - Original from Shlar/Christopher HarveyThis song goes out to three of my good friends who have passed away over the last three years: Eric Swanby, Matthew Davis, and Ryan Moore. Brilliant and inspiring guys. Check out the guitar playthru on my youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nNVSSLjfaQ Or download the audio for FREE on my bandcamp: https://christopherharv.bandcamp.com/releases It is also a song for anyone grieving, or contemplating loss. In this recording we have: Superior Drummer 2.0 "Metal Machine" on drums :D Agile Pendulum 102730 10-String Guitar on bass Roland JD-Xi on synth/keys Agile Pro 727 7-String Electric & Agile Renaissance 827 Acoustic on guitars. All music composed, arranged, and performed by yours truly :) **Words from Alan Watts.** My DAW is Reaper, my Interface is a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 DSP, ran through a 2015 MacBook Pro. I use a Shure SM57 on the right speaker of my Orange 2x12 Cab, enclosed with an SEelectronics "SPACE" mic shield, with the astonishing Mesa Boogie JP-2C as the amplifier. DiMarzio pups in the Electric 7-String Guitar. This was my first recorded song ever, so I did not have a decent preamp of any kind, unfortunately. It does alright tho.
"Kokuten" - Naruto Shippuden OST 2 (cover)
"Kokuten" - Naruto Shippuden OST 2 (cover)This is a cover of the amazing track "Kokuten" from the Naruto Shippuden OST: 2 Check out the playthru on my youtube! ~~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGQd9n5ufzQ Download this cover on my bandcamp for FREE :) - https://christopherharv.bandcamp.com/releases I do not own the song at all. I'm simply trying to pay homage to this most epic of tunes. In my own way. I try to make up for my lack of orchestral realism with a massive guitar tone and some cool drums.
"The Wanderer" - Original Prog Metal
"The Wanderer" - Original Prog MetalOriginal Prog Metal from yours truly! In vein of Dream Theater, Meshuggah, Rush, and Periphery - just to name a few - i think any prog head will find this track interesting. Check out the guitar playthru! ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeVQCsnzkrU With Superior Drummer, the Roland JD-Xi, my Agile Guitars, and my faithful Mesa Amp and Orange Cab combo, this is my best mix yet -- clearly I have just begun! The biggest improvement on my next one will be the bass tone. On this track, because Guitar Center is taking FOREVER to get in the bass which i ordered, i had to record the "bass" with my 10-String Agile Pendulum guitar. It helps that it has a 30" scale and can hold an A0 with decent clarity. But that lower-cycle clarity and sustain just isn't there, as i'm sure you can tell. On top of that, i went direct with no preamp. But now I am the proud owner of a PreSonus Studio Channel - a great rack-mountable preamp/compressor/EQ all in one. And it's a TUBE preamp! Ax7's, i believe. So sit back and enjoy this proggy little wandering of mine ;)
Synthesizer TomfooleryJust acquired a Roland JD-xi synthesizer. Trying it out here on my first night of ownership with a crude run-thru of some favorite presets.
"Trek of the Mind" - REAL PLAYTHRU, Recorded guitar w/gpX drums & bass
"Trek of the Mind" - REAL PLAYTHRU, Recorded guitar w/gpX drums & bassThis is a demo-quality recording i did myself of my latest completed original prog-metal piece. The flow is strange, but it's there. But yes, AN ACTUAL RECORDING OF ME PLAYING A SONG ALL THE WAY THROUGH!! Check her out. If you're a prog metal riff-head, the bridge here is definitely for you. I'll be uploading a playthru to my YouTube channel (thegr8harV) as soon as i can get my hands on a decent camera. If you are listening, or about to, thank you :) It shouldn't disappoint ;) The outro is a little sketchy,,, BY FAR the hardest part of the song, especially that main lead it fades out on.
