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 ;)

    really beautiful intro, exotic sounds — nice, thick tone on the electrics! great playing, glad i heard this one today, too — rip buddy guy.

    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!

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 : Cosmic Eastern chillout atmospheric shuffle blues with loads of bluesy/Eastern electric guitar playing and warm sub bass (the same synth patch I've used in about 20 tracks). No drum loops and just two programmed acoustic kits - probably the simplest drum setup I've ever used. One day I hope to make a track containing only one drum kit. Also: a few female vocal samples (including a heavily timestretched one), one section of bass guitar, a few sample-based string instruments, a few notes of organ and two synth pad instruments. So, quite a minimal instrument lineup for me. It goes uptempo around 4:31 into a grooving, stomping bit of shuffle blues and I wonder if I should have brought this section back at the end for a triumphant finale. But I'm trying hard these days not to make things too long and this is already a decent length. Also contains some darker, Eastern sections but nothing too dark. Have a listen and leave me some interesting feedback - the more detail, the better.

Description : Been away for a while. I am doing something I usually don't do with this one. Here is a blues track I put together in a day. It features everything being done by me, with improvised solos for each instrument. This was done using Fl Studio 12 and my Korg M50 keyboard. I plan on adding lyrics to it down the road and having everything much cleaner. Anyhow, enjoy!
