Description : I recorded this in about 4 hours then did a second mix a few hours later. I love when they come together that fast. Acoustic/pop/folk rock song. Acoustic guitar, EZ Drummer, bass, 2 pads and me singing.
Description : Pop rock song, with acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, harmonica and me singing.
Description : I did this Dylan-esque folk song because Joe Funktastic described an earlier track as sounding a little like his music. Acoustic guitar, harmonica and me singing.
Description : Still working on placement of the mic/eq/comp.... with my new acoustic guitar. Strings are breaking in and the woody tone is starting to be more obvious and over time that will get better, at least I hope. Woods in the mahogany family have a a mellow snap to them which I personally like. Chill out acoustic/folk.
Description : A song about starting over, giving it your best effort, changing what you don't like about your life. All the usual instruments and singing.
Description : Acoustic folk/pop/rock song that has a more positive outlook towards what we are facing in our crazy little mixed up world.
Description : A folk rock/pop song. Jaco Jazz bass, Martin D10, EZ Drummer, some harmonica and I'm serenading you again.
Description : Here's a new punk song about how people just can't hang out at home and enjoy some peace and quiet and getting caught up on things you put off doing during this pandemic. Remixed it a bit on June 21, a bit punchier.
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 : With my country up in flames over another senseless death, I figured I would do a Clash inspired song. Think White Riot, London's Burning, the first album sound.
Description : Got neighbors that bother you and do things that irk you? Are the corona idiots making you scratch your head with their selfishness and disrespect for your right to live in safety? Maybe this will help you deal in a weird way. Weird chords, weird lyrics, weird song, lol.
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 : Stole the title from my new bass pedal from Fender, yep. Ez drummer, bass, overdriven bass, a couple singing tracks and a few guitar tracks. Can't forget the tambo but I did forget to activate one of the FX tracks in the chorus. I thought it was worth putting it in the song and remixed it a bit.
Description : After the dumbest man in America suggested that people should inject disinfectants into their bodies and shine lights in their busty innards, I just couldn't resist the temptation to write a song about it. Put this together quickly and roughly mixed so don't beat me up on that, just sit back, read the lyrics and sing along and hopefully you chuckle a bit.
Description : This was the last song I sent to Jim asking if he would like to add something or replace anything I put down. His wife told me he was playing some pretty cool classical guitar and asked if we had recorded his parts but unfortunately we hadn't. I decided the other day to add the classical part myself. Spaghetti western in flavor and a bit somber. The title is quite fitting after last months events.
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.
Description : A quick idea I did in one day, 2 mixes, more an exercise for myself than anything serious. Inspirations were a Peter Tosh docu for the reggae feel, a surfing vid on what a point break was for the vox, the Ace of Bass vid The Sign for the drums and Jaco Pastorius song Crisis for a bit of inspirational bass thrown in. 2 drum loops used and a vocal effect loop for the heck of it in the middle, he. Live percussion, cabasa, guiro and double maraca. Me on git, bass, vox. Here comes Summer!
Description : My version of the 1979 British alternative rock song by Lene Lovich featuring the guitar talents of Jimmy Stiles again. When I told him I was putting it together he was totally interested in playing on this. It's different, definitely harder than the original. A strat through a Fender DeVille with some reverb. EZ Drummer, me on bass, vocals and lead tambourine. A fun song and great lyrics and only 2 chords, what could be better!
Description : An acoustic folk song about someone who taught me a lot about life.
Description : Billy wanted to record a song by the Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown. He picked this one, played the guitars and sang all the parts. There's a cool 3 part backing harmony singing section he arranged. I'm playing bass and did the mixing. Tried to give it that "old timey" feeling like the original by mic'ing an old Kay amp he brought over giving it that sound.
Description : Jim wanted to record some guitar so I put a quick bass and drum track together to give us some direction and Jim decided to rip it up again. I went back in and redid some bass to better match what he laid down and then put together an intro. Tele through a Fender Bronco, Jaco Jazz bass, EZ drummer
Description : I asked danke if he would allow me to add some vocals to a track he recently uploaded and he kindly accepted. The song is about experiencing the effects of post concussion syndrome like balance problems, anxiety, stress, relationship issues.
Description : Billy, aka "Sweet Willy", wanted to record a blues song written by Dave Von Ronk so he stopped by with his Gibson re-issue 1942 Southern Jumbo which was only 1 of 10 made for the Dallas guitar show the year he bought it. It even has the classic banner on the headstock and it sounded and recorded great! He sang a lead vocal track and a couple backups. The tracking took about 15 minutes and I did a couple mixes. I dig the tune and Billy's rendition, hope you do too!
Description : This one is a country/gospel song stylized in the Johnny Cash approach to that type of genre. This one goes out to looperman member vigwig. Sorry Vic to hear about your loss. My heartfelt wishes go out to you and your family.
Description : A song about what's happening in my trees outside my house. A finger snap loop, a mandolin loop and a cabasa loop were used that I uploaded here a while ago. Acoustic guitar, bass, some singing and some piano.
