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 : A song about a train, Jimmy on guitar and his life long friend Billy experimenting with an old Kalamazoo lap steel, a late addition. Fender Tele through a Fender Princeton. I attribute two train loops by Daniel Simion at Soundbible. The third train sound is a guitar loop with effects. I play the bass, sing, acoustic guitar, wrote, arranged and mixed it. Might have the singer in Jim's bluegrass band redo the vox at some point.
Description : Based on ESoreni's acapella "looperman-a-1887991-0010180-esoreni-acapella-51". It was positioned as country music to do, and I attempted to make bluegrass/blues song (never did something like that :) ).Many thanks to ESoreni!
This track is fully noncommercial!
Description : Here attached is a new country tune I put together using several loops I bought off a disk set. I call it 'Old Tyme Country' as it is close to being Bluegrass as well. (Bluegrass usually has a Mandoline, Fiddle and a 5-string Banjo, and a rhythm guitar at least).
This instrumental features no guitars or regular drums. Rhythm here is provided by a Dulcimer, a Shaker and a drum like instrument called a Djembe. (An instrument from Africa, looking like a tall Bongo drum)
An acoustic stand-up Bass is used along with a 4 string Banjo, and the Fiddle is the main instrument.
Put all these together and this is the sound you can have. Hope you'll like it.
Description : OLD TIME COUNTRY & BLUEGRASS MUSIC. Doing a Country/Blue Grass thing here.
Description : collaboration with Kooder from Macon, Georgia, he wrote the lyrics and I provide the music it's an adaptation of my track Martin's Dance. Classic Country Bluegrass.
Description : So I'm playing in a NEW band called The Muckrakes. We're a cross between Americana and Bluegrass. The band recorded a few songs and I'd like to get your take on them. This song is called "till They're Gone". It's a drinking song of course about having a few beer on a summer day and just having a good time. Please tell me what ya think about the structure, melody, harmonies of this song.
