Description : A few of us CBG builders did a swap recently. I recieved The Gunslinger 3 string fretless. This is the music I was asked to record for the video showing off the swaps. Rythym and intro is The Gunslinger, lead is The Lone Rider both fretless 3 stringers played with a brass Mojobone slide.

The intro was right out of a Clint Eastwood western, I can smell and taste that half smoked cigar as I listen. I would consider that part an interlude, a separate track introducing the piece to follow and connected to it in some way. The main piece is raw, dirty and swampy and I can dig that! Nice composition overall.

Well done Burt!

Thanks Wayne :D The intro was messing about on my new Gunslinger guitar making a soundcheck video, I got in the swap. I really liked it so added it in. Great description! I wish I could share pictures here, it's a skeleton cowboy smoking a cigar, strung with acoustic strings with a ghosted (hidden under the lid) magnetic flat humbucker pick up. Yes they work but a bit quieter than electrics. It does have quite an old western kind of sound. It did seem to fit with the following I recorded for the video showing all the guitars that were swapped, what a BLAST that was! :D Always a pleasure Wayne, wish I could hang around here as much as I used to!! I do alot with the cbg groups on fb these days. There's no hope but to build more LOL!!

My god man, you are a blues god aren't you? Holy moly, that is some tasty playing right there, like Ry Cooder and Mississippi Fred McDowell got together to play some cigar boxes, and this is what came out. Seriously, this is just about as good as it gets. Not only do you have the talent to build one of these bad boys, you have the chops to bring them to life. Smokin' piece. I hope all is well.

Wow Blues god status!! Thank you Bear! There's nothing like these beautiful guitars, so unique and fun to play and build. I barely touch my six stringer production guitars anymore. Even got into making my own pick ups which seem quite popular. All is well, been working all through this virus crap, thankful the school is closed to unauthorized persons. There's been a few quaranteen build competitions, but this one was a swap, build a guitar for someone, recieve one in return.

Who knew a stick in a cigar box with some strings could create such sounds! I make alot of short videos playing live for fb groups like that intro. Stay Tuned ;)

They be gone but their influence is not. Exotic sounds on exotic guitars. Calling on the soul of the blues, I made The Lone Rider, The Gunslinger was made for me. Handmade slide and pick too :p Happy you enjoyed, it was alot of fun!

Boogie crossover (its just a fragment), every instrument is performed and recorder live. Piano, double bass, drums.

Almost 8 hours of work.

Description : Of all the classic Monster tales the Wolfman is definitely one of the saddest. Cursed, and destined to live as both man and monster. During the day he sits alone with his guitar, a prisoner of lonely existence, crying his heart out through his music. Then at night, the beast emerges, and in the dark under a full moon, he cry's as he rips the hearts out of his victims! Such is the life of a cursed bluesman!

Description : This is a tune dedicated to my friend, Nancy, who followed me to the clubs I played at for years, and is still following me with my studio work. Why do I dedicate this to her? Onnacounta cause she's soooooo naughty! She never liked violins, but loved her sax! Here's to you, Nancy. Anyway, this is a little blues track with some nice guitar and sex...oh, sorry, I mean sax.

Enjoy and download away.

Description : A sultry, seductive, and fairly short acoustic blues number. It is an instrumental and only took about 2 hours to write, record, and get a decent mix. Enjoy! Updated: I added some slight echo to the electric guitar and widened the stereo fields of the acoustic rhythm and leads.

Description : Fresh out of the studio after 10 weeks of deliberating, planning, writing and performing.
This could be classed as Country Blues or Southern Rock...either way I think it may get your toes tapping. So grab your partner and jump on the dance floor with this one.
I am performing the following instruments...vocals, electric guitars, slide acoustic, bass, harmonica, organ. I wrote the following instrument parts in MIDI....drums, percussion, piano, horns. This was a beast to master but I think it turned out okay.
No loops used.

Description : UPDATE 26/01/2014: Improved loads of things in what is probably my greatest chillout alternative blues piece. Ambient, ethereal, groove-based delta slide blues. Contemplative and melodic. Multiple, layered , sometimes shimmering resonator guitar parts with solid, warm synth bass, an ethereal bed of pads (which are actually guitars) and second electronic drumkit to contrast the acoustic kits. I thought this was perfect a few years ago but it wasn't (and still isn't). Now has clearer drums and lots of small awkward bits of guitar have been trimmed. Quite a minimalistic and short piece for me - I don't just keep bringing in new instruments, as I usually do. This should really chill you out...
