Mister Phisher

Hello JG Community, hope everyone is looking forward to a great weekend wherever you are in the world.

With my latest composition I’ve experimented with some sound bites and I think it’s come up reasonably well. Lyrics are incorporated in the video, so I won’t list them here.

Quite happy overall with song, music and video. I guess the more you practice all elements, the better one gets.

Love to all.


Lee, that was excellent. Opening was brilliant and it just got better from there.

Nice work.

Really impressive production Lee, both musically and with the video. Certainly a testament to what practice achieves!

That’s another cool produciton, Lee! Very well done. :clap: :smiley:

It’s fascinating how you put a quite serious issue/topic into something entertaining, hence on point story to tell in a song. The scenes in the video are well chosen to substantiate the vibe and message. This is an enjoyable composition.

I think, if my former company would use your song instead of the endless annoying IT security trainings, awareness would raise drastically. :sweat_smile:

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lee

Pretty impressive production values on the video.

Clearly way out of my ability to do anything similar and I’ve never even written an original lick much less a song. . . .hats off to you!!

I enjoyed both the video and the song. . .

Nice to see some creative juices flowing. Well done!!

Thank you for your comments Stefan, Jeremy, Lisa and Mark.

Jeremy, you say way out of your ability. I never thought I would be able to do anything like this when I started playing guitar, but it is achievable. I’m a mediocre intermediate guitarist who can barely sing, but with recording software like Cakewalk (free download at the moment) and a Boss digital recorder, and for videos using Clipchamp on Windows (free on Windows 11+), it’s relatively straight forward…. takes a while, but can be done. I guess the hardest bit is the songwriting and realising the melody in your head and getting out. But again, I’m no songsmith but I’m sticking at it.

Lisa, yeah takes a while to pick the clips and compile the timeline and add the lyrics, but it’s satisfying when the end product comes up so well. That is a thought about IT security training…. I wonder if Bill Gates would be interested?!?!


Hi Lee!
This recording of your new song is really clear, with parts having their own space to work in. I love the layering of the vocals you are doing as well - both the lead and the backing ooo’s.

I also didn’t realise that Mr Phisher is a thing - a phishing tool for socials apparently - there you go - I learned something new today.

Just as others have said, your video editing really suits the song and truly becomes a vehicle for the music. Your use of repeating clips for the same section of the song reinforces the familiarity of the section. I’m quizzical though - and not sure if I am interpreting correctly - the outro, which sounds like it features a televangelist - are you saying that there is a similarity between televangelists and scammers? Quite legitimately in many cases, I think there is.

Thank you Andrew. Well I’ve learnt something new as well then. I had no idea that Mister Phisher was a social phishing tool. I just used it as a simile to Mr.Fisher, I was looking for fishing analogies as well, but they got a bit trite, so I steered clear of using them as much as possible. I had no intent to compare preaching to scamming, I more so wanted to convey some of the unnecessary use of personal information as a gateway for all sorts of “punters” to get at us.

Unfortunately I’ve shown my hand for our next jam, I couldn’t wait to get it out! The Pandora’s Box I alluded to previously was the use of sound bites. For this song it has worked well, and better than I had expected.

Yes, it works both ways, as in my point and yours!
