During a survey, which of my guitars would have the most interesting sound, I got several interesting answers. “Lucid Gypsy” (let me call her “Mellow Gilly”) for example answered: “It’s hard to choose but the one with the light wood and f holes because its so mellow.”
English is a foreign language for me, so sometimes I have to analyse a word more than others –
make or become mellow = “getting older does mellow the hard edges around the anger”
(especially of sound, taste, and color) = pleasantly smooth or soft; free from harshness. “she was hypnotized by the mellow tone of his voice”
dulcet, sweet-sounding, tuneful, melodious, mellifluous, soft, smooth, warm, full, rich
(of a person’s character) = softened or matured by age or experience. “a more mellow personality”
genial, affable, amiable, good-humored, good-natured, amicable, pleasant, relaxed, easygoing, low-maintenance, placid, jovial, jolly, cheerful, happy, merry
i like this one too. i think this is more mellow…kinda sleepy, in a nice relaxing way would be how i describe how i feel when i heard it compare to the other one.
As my students would say, “I feel you.”
Nice to wake up to your soundcloud offering this morning, Frizz. Going to be a lovely day.
Seeing your post with my name at the top of my reader made me laugh out loud 🙂 🙂 🙂 , vielen dank. I am very happy to have taught you a new word and hope that you found it appropriate?
Maybe you could teach me a German word?
