Description : I was fusion splicing fiber optic cable in the middle of nowhere, Alabama many years ago when a bunch of prisoners and a guard on a horse strolled by me as I was doing my thing. This song is about that encounter. Drums, guitars, bass, singing and some piano this time.

    I really liked this tune Wayne. Instruments sound great and the story is very entertaining. Nice vocals. The whole song was great. Sounds like blues to me tho, has that flavor to it.
    Do you still splice fiber optic? =)

    Thanks!

    A large majority of rock songs use a blues progression like I did here. There is a blues feel in that regard.

    No, I don't splice fiber optics anymore, I am retired.

    Tema con mucha fuerza amigo Wayne, potente ritmo, y las guitarras y el bajo son de autentico lujo, igual que tu voz narrando la historia. Gran mezcla final, totalmente profesional, se oye de lujo. Que tengas una buena tarde hermano. Paz y salud.

    Your vocal sound always fits your music. I have high respect for musicians that understand how to use their gift of music. Great story and track. PEACE. T576 OUT.

    Thanks but my voice isn't a gift, unless you consider those prank gifts you give to tease someone.

    I don't really have a lead vocal kind of voice so I make it rough sounding so it doesn't sound like Barry Manilow and bore people. I wouldn't sing like this if I was singing in a chorus for example. It is what it is.

    I know, it has a bouncy, happy feel to it. Well I was happy, maybe the prisoners weren't.

    Thanks!

This track took me in a very different direction than what I usually do... but by Jove, I had fun. Muchas gracias!

18/10/2020: holy smoke I hadn't realised what a chaotic mess I had made of the mixing. Cleaned it up to my limited abilities and I guess I'll come back again to it later. Even more thanks for listening!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.

This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can.

For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things.

Hope you enjoy it!!!
