Description : This is a combination of 2 old popular tunes in One.
(Jump, and The Power of Love)
Not an easy task by no means. Drums are from loops. Lead guitar was played slowly at first many times to 'get it right'.
So sit back and relax to a couple tunes from the 80's.

    Hi Jody,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I am glad you enjoyed the two song mixed. I have heard it done in the past before and wanted to give it a try. Came out pretty well I think.

    I appreciate your comments and thanks again for listening and reviewing.

    Hello there Mike,
    Say...thanks for the review and listen to this tune.
    Mixing 2 songs together isn't easy as you can imagine....that's why I don't do it much.

    I appreciate your review and will give a listen to see what you have up.

    Thanks,

    This is so awesome, very creative kind of like a rock version of Chet Atkins when he plays two different songs on the guitar at the same time. This is very nice. Great job!!!

    Hi there,
    Thanks for reviewing this track and the other 3 you did. I am slow getting back to you and am sorry about that. I did save your notices and planned to answer before now. I was working a lot of overtime last fall and didn't even make any songs for 3 months.

    So I am glad you likd this tune and thanks for your patience. I will give a listen to some of yours.

    Talk about getting your 80's fix in at once. true multitasking by listening to 2 80's hits at once. The highlight is definitely the superb guitar solo!

    Hello D2D,

    Don't believe I had seen your name before reviewing any of my previous tunes. I appreciate your comments very much and am glad you enjoyed this tune.

    Putting a tune like this together takes a lot of time as you can imagine. It is a matter of making both tunes full out and then fitting them together so they will fit properly.

    Later, and thanks again,
    Randy

    I love this big rock sound. I would never have thought you could mix these two tunes but you did and did it well. One of the best tunes I have heard on Looperman. Awesome!

    Hello sir,
    Thank you so much for listening and reviewing my Van Halen mix tune. I don't believe I have seen your name review any of my previous tunes, so your certainly welcome.

    Shortly, I will review one of your tunes and give you feedback as well.

    Mixing 2 tunes togather isn't easy and I have heard it done only a few times before. But now and then you hear a song and say to yourself, "now that sounds like another song I am familiar with", and thus the idea is born of trying to mix 2 songs together. That's what happened here.

    Thanks again,
    Randy

    I had to listen to this a few times to remember the Huey Lewis song. It didn't come to mind to quick, then I got a flashback of Back to the Future ha ha. This is a big powerhouse song combo. I never really thought of slowing down a track to play a solo ever. I will have to try that out. As far as the whole song sounds, it's top notch. I enjoyed the mix of Jumps synth lines with P.O.L.'s guitar. It sounded very fluid like it was originally written like that. Great combo Randy. Cheers =D

    Hi there MCHN,

    I appreciate you checking out my latest tune here. As I mentioned, it was no easy feat to do.
    I liked both of the tunes as they sounded like they might fit together, so you hear the results.

    Many guitarist I knew when I was playing in my band slowed down tunes to learn them them. Slowing down usually gets you half speed and an octave lower is all.
    Some handheld recorders let you do this as well these days. Very helpful for learning very fast riffs, etc.

    I appreciate your review and hope you'll stop by again.

    hahah.. not subtle at all when you said Van Halen meets Huey Lewis!

    Dare I say more reverb was in my head hearing the synths, plus more tension? The synths sounds like it is just one shot, when you could add a lot of emotion with paced feeling thru striking the keys?...
    everything else sounds PERFECT.

    I love the subtlety of the guitar work.
    wow.

    solo just kicked in.

    I am going to shut my trap.
    and just enjoy what is happening in my ears.

    Hello Abe,

    Well I wrote you E-mail before this, but I wanted to answer some in here as well. I always appreciate your review as you tell it like it is. Of course, we all have different taste and what we want or wish to hear in others tunes.

    The Synth was set down and then looped so I didn't have to keep playing it over and over.

    I didn't add a lot as I am trying to play two different songs in one and needed to keep things unclutered is all.

    Thanks for your review, I appreciate it.

    Hi there Dave,
    Such a pleasure to have to stop by and listen to one of my latest. I figured most people that were older like me would enjoy this tune. Took quite a while to make as you can imagine.
    As far as the guitar work, that was hard as I had to do it in short sections....slower....until I could get the chops down....then put in in the track as normal speed keeping the same pitch.

    Thanks for putting me into the likes of Bilbozo. He is truely a great player that's for sure.
    I don't believe he has heard this one yet.

    Thanks again for your glowing review and I'll be checking out to see what new stuff you may have up too.

    Hello BigJowezy,

    Hey, I appreciate you stopping by as well and listening and reviewing my latest. I will do the same for you.
    A lot of great music was written in the middle 50's right up till the middle 80's I feel. Just before disco came in.

    The sound of the guitars changed from the 50's surfing music by The Beach Boys to the Beatles and Rolling Stones in the 60's, and many other great artist (Jimi Hendriks, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Clapton and others to name a few) from the early era.
    Then REO Speedwagon, Boston, Rush, and other great bands as well came along.

    One of my daughters is now 16 and she is growing up with Rap and such. I am introducing her to good 'ole rock-n-roll and an country, and she likes it.

    So anyways, glad you enjoyed the tune and thanks again for your comments.
    Randy

    I'm grinning from ear to ear. The original and the nostalgic woven together seamlessly.
    are you using an amp modeler? how are you recording the guitar? I know how hard it is to mimic a live- mic amp sound without all the noise.

    either way, quite impressive.. added to faves.

    Hello there Goosemeyer,

    Now yours isn't a name I have seen before listening to my tunes, as I remember most everyone. So welcome!
    I usually play/record country, rock, and blues.

    I am glad to have to listen and review any of my tunes that you might be interested in.

    As far as the particulars in this one, I used my Framus electric (Les Paul lookalike) and plug in direct usually. And yes I have amp modelers with in my Pro Tools software.
    In fact, I think I have too much software.

    I have real sounding natural pianos to electric pianos and many other various instruments including synths, such as the old ARP 2600 for weird sounds and the 'MOOG' instruments.

    I use effects and EQing to acheive the sounds I want to hear. In other words, a lot of experimenting. I usually use www.betamonkeymusic.com drum sets as they are recorded live, usually 24 bit I choose.

    Altho a drum machine will probably do the same....except cost lots more.
    I usually record the rhythm track twice to give a song a fuller sound. This can be just the same guitar or combo of different guitars including acoustic guitars.
    If you'll look at my profile and gallery, you'll see some of the different instruments I use and play myself. I also have learned the 'Mastering' side of music as well so I don't have to take my tunes to a studio anymore for mastering.

    So again, thanks for stopping by and I'll give a listen to your tracks as well.
    Randy

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.

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.

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!!!

XpekT.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.
