Description : I bought a metal detector and a sand scoop a few months ago and go to the beach a few times a week to find all the goodies the depositors leave. This fun song sums up a morning's walk down the beach. Acoustic guitars, wave sound effect and me playing lead metal detector.
Description : My cover version of Elvis Presley's song.
Description : 2 acoustic guitar tracks, piano and a tambo. Sorta chill out/pop. Started out with singing and drums but ended up an instrumental instead.
Description : My acoustic cover of the late '70's pop/rock hit from the Knack's first album. This song is all about teenage sexual frustration so it might not be suitable for younger listeners. Martin D10 acoustic guitar, tambo, and I'm singing all three tracks, lead and the 2 high backup tracks.
Description : A simple, sad country song.
Description : Country/folk/rock idea.
Description : Surf rock idea, was thinking Link Wray styled early stuff. Needs a ripping lead and the skills aren't in my wheelhouse to do what I want to hear. Sent it to my friend Billy, his reply was Jim would have killed this. I agreed and I'm guessing you wouldn't have heard either of my two guitar tracks either if he was still around. This was his kinda music.
Description : My unplugged cover version of the Clash classic Clampdown off the London Calling album, one of the greatest albums ever.

Description : Short folk song about a simpler time. Acoustic guitar and singing.
Description : A short acoustic Christmas song.
Description : A cover of a song by Blaze Foley, the Duct Tape Messiah. Even though it's just a bit slower than the original, I feel it has a little more upbeat feel, maybe the drum beat picks it up so I put it under pop. I love this guy's music, he wrote from the heart and from his life's experiences until he was shot and killed protecting an elderly gentleman. Sad and interesting story. The song Drunken Angel by Lucinda Williams is about him.
Description : Acoustic cover of one of my favorite Warren Zevon songs.
Description : Acoustic folk song with some harmonica, short.

Description : A folk rock/pop song. Jaco Jazz bass, Martin D10, EZ Drummer, some harmonica and I'm serenading you again.
Description : I bought a new Martin D10e acoustic guitar. It's solid sapele front, back and sides and has a satin finish which makes the neck so fast. A folk rock song about a train ride to the deep south.
Description : A fun song about a girl and a car. All the usual instruments, me singing, a horn, tambo. Oh, and a piano, too.
Description : I wrote this song for my friend Jim who passed away last month. I wrote it so that the people who knew him could sing along and feel it was their words and feelings expressed in the song. The first verse are words I said to Jim about a month before he died, hoping he would make some positive changes. It was so hard and emotional to put this together but helpful in allowing me to get through a tough time.
