Description : Trying to figure out how the new version of garageband works I came up with this tune. Riffing and rolling I had great fun. The guitars swell as the bass are recorded with my telecaster and the vocals are recorded with my headsets microphone. Improvised vocals of course. Enjoy if you can and comments are welcome as always.

Description : This song started out as a bluesy Hendrix tribute (I was actually testing some amp settings) and it evolved into something else with its roots in the sixties.
I recorded it with my macbook pro, Garageband, mastered in cubase (!) and used a strat, tele, precision bass. How it sounds? Why not listen and let me know? Enjoy.

Description : Sunday 120527: Added some new backup vocals. Enjoy.

Friday 120525: Recorded this one song yesterday, improvised vocals in Swedish just to remember a the vocal melody. With a few notes off key and off beat – it felt like a May kind of song with the summer coming up. Bass, guitars, vocal attempts and a good feeling inside. Enjoy.

Description : One of my musical heroes passed away last week. This reggae in swedish is an homage to Stig Vig, the front man of one of my favourite bands – Dag Vag. The song is a non roots rock reggae punk type of thing. Improvised swedish lyrics just to get the Stig Vig feel. Enjoy and skank a bit. /pmk

ps Lite till means a little more.

Description : I got an idea as I played around on my guitar and trying out amp settings a few hours back. I liked the sound and recorded it – improvised nonsens lyrics just to get an idea of a vocal melody. So please consider it a work in progress and feedback is most welcome. So listen, comment and maybe enjoy. /pmk

I wrote the lyrics and sang this demo, the next time we meet he will sing a new version. 'til then, here's the latest song from The Fabulous Kikajons. :D

Update: Listened to some critique and cranked up the vocals a bit. For the better I hope.

Description : Update: chorus volumes.

The first version of this tune was a part of my bands repertoire back in the eighties. Back then the lyrics was in Swedish but the vocals in this recording is an adlib in english based on the same theme.
Apple loops for the drums, garageband, Logic, precision, strat and my cranky voice disturbing the neighbours. Enjoy!

Description : This is actually a song that just happened. I was playing my guitar when I suddenly got this lick in my head and I recorded it as a demo for my bandmates in Transatlantic Experience. The adlib vocals is just for Jim and Allen to get an idea about the melody, so the words might not make total sense.
I use a Macbook Pro, Garageband, Logic, Strat, fretless Presicion and have tolerant neighbours. Apart from the Apple loops drums, it's all me. Even if it's a rough first demo for my bandmates, I'm curious to know what you think about the tune so far...

p.s. The finished result will eventually turn up on the TransatlanticExp page here on Looper.

I had to respond to the 4-track challenge and here's my entry – a Transatlantic Experience tune called Music man. I wrote the music in Sweden and Jim Byrd wrote the lyrics and sang in in Philly PA.

track 1: Drums – apple loops
track 2: Bass – Kikajon (precision through a Marshall)
track 3: guitar – Kikajon (strat through an Orange–stack)
track 4: vocals – Tacatta

There's a full version of this new Transatlantic tune on the TransatlanticExp page here on looper. Have fun.

Description : This track in swedish, originally titled Om Kärlek, was written a few years back. As I went through my songs tonight I listnened to it and I thought I share it with you.
I had great help on this one, My oldest daughter and my son sings the backing vocals to this song about a man seeking forgivness.
With new strings on the stratocaster, a macbook pro, garageband, a fretless presicion and the loving help from the kids, this is how it can sound. Enjoy.

Description : This reggae/pop song was originally written for my band back in the 80ies and it sort of stuck with me. The lyrics in swedish are about a son coming home after 14 years abroad and the most important lesson he learned while he was away.
Recorded in Garageband with my usual set up, mastered in audition.
Happy skankin'

p.s. check out the latest Transatlantic Experience tune too, quite a difference from this one. :)

Description : Update: Finally me and Erik found the time to add his vocals to this country tune. I remixed it and added more of Allens country pickin' guitar. It's hard to make it more country than this... :)

My son Erik (kruus @ looper) had an idea about a rock/country song (more country than rock maybe). We started to jam, had a blast and started recording. My vocals are an adlib as ususal, to be replaced by Eriks voice. My friend Allen heard the tune and added some country style pickin' . Recorded on a Macbook with garageband, a slide, strat, precision and tolerant neigbours, here's a first rough draft of in my country. Enjoy.

Minor update: adjusted volumes, still waiting for the big one.

Description : Update: Went through the timing and cleaned it up a bit. Also remastered it in Audtion for some extra freshness.

When I moved into the city, instead of the mountains for a view I got a church tower in my skyline. The song in Swedish is about everyday life in my surroundings and the title translates to The City Bells. Recorded with garageband, strat, precision and some strait NYC-loops.

Description : Nils Ferlin was a swedish poet from Värmland county, his statue is sitting on a bench in a small town called Filipstad. This song is about talking to Ferlin about life.
The track was originally written for my band way back in the eighties and I always felt that I should rearrange the chorus. So here it is, a totally new version of the song with lyrics in english.

UPDATE March 3: My buddy and former band mate Jens Comen is now a fabulous sax player in a folk rock band called Hoven Droven (check them out on itunes). His soprano sax added a nice touch to this song. If you want to see the Ferlin statue, check out my pics.

Description : Update: Remastered in audition. A bit sparkier I think...

While my friends Jim and Allen are doing their stuff on some Transatlantic Experience tunes, I thought I might do a pop/rock song on my own. Recorded on a macbook pro using my strat, the presicion and my latest guitar, a flying V. Drum loops by guitarjock (check out his work, great guitar and drum work).
The lyrics are an adlib so it might sound a little strange here and there. :) What do you think? Let me know,

Description : A simple pop/folk tune in swedish that came about after a crazy evening. Well, the song is about what can happen when you hang in the bar too long and try to dance after that. Please consider this tune as a work in progress, I need a good pianoplayer and a nice tin pipe...but, it was fun to do and I hope you like it.

UPDATE: Remixed and remastered with Wayne the Humps on mandolin. Hopefully it sounds better,

Description : Update july 2011: I had a go at this song again, rearranged it slightly and did a remaster with fresh ears.

July 2010: This is a rock/pop song in swedish.
I pretty much wrote this track to my youngest daughter as we were waiting for the bus to take us home. She had been to school, fell asleep on her way home and woke up i a city some 50 miles away. The lyrics is about making mistakes that gives new experiencens, and some of them are actually good. Garage band, strat, fretless precision as ususal. Hope you'll enjoy this one. /pmk

Description : Update: New amps sounds a bit differnent in a new mix and with a new master. The song remains the same, though.

This is another heavy rock song (I've got two left to release). It started out as a tiny riff on my fretboard – I recorded it right away and as the take went on, the chords just came. I played up to 1:50 before I cut the recording and started editing. This track came strait out.
Mac, garageband, strat, fretless precision and drum loops from Groovemaster.
Hope you like it.

Description : Final update: Mahloo13 contributed to this song with an amazing mix and new master (I sadly had to compress it slightly due to looperman size limitations). If you've heard this tune before – listen again – I think it's worth it. Lots and lots of cred to Malu for his effort.

Update: Totally new vocal tracks by tacatta.

100615: Yesterday I came across a man who lost his angel. This really moved me and I just had to finish this track which suddenly found its reason. A couple of weeks ago i found an acapella by Eshar that now made its way into this song. Garageband, Strat, Eshar, fretless precision and some compassion


p.s. In case you wonder – yes, I'm a big fan of Pink Floyd.

Description : 25 years ago I had this pop rock reggae band called Grenserasta and one of the members was Jens ComÃÂn – an excellent sax player. We have re-recorded three songs from that era. Damen med hunden means The lady with the dog and is about a women who longs for a different life where the rain is warm, the breeze is soothing and the sun shines.

Since I've used all the fifty slots, I am replacing old songs and I hope you forgive me for that. So take it easy and enjoy this little pop rock reggae song with amazing saxophone playing by Jens.
