Description : It's an instrumental where I used a couple drum loops, 3 different kinds of bass loops, stand-up bass, electric bass and midi bass, a couple electric slide loops, a couple effects loops and added 4 live acoustic guitar tracks, 1 rhythm, 2 fill tracks and a slide track. Just making some noise.
Description : Acoustic cover of one of my favorite Warren Zevon songs.
Description : Acoustic folk song with some harmonica, short.
Description : A Bob Dylan cover. Probably as relevant today as it was when it was written. I had to bounce it down to 256 kbps mp3.
Description : People are being evicted from their homes and the thought of homelessness as winter approaches is unbelievable, especially during a pandemic.
Some electric guitars, me singing and a sorta busy drum beat I found in EZ Drummer that I've never used...and maybe shouldn't have, he.
Description : A song about remembering those who've lost their lives from covid, the doctors and nurses, meat packing plant workers, workers in warehouses and stores.... maybe even you have a job that puts you in harm's way. These folks make it possible for us to survive, unfortunately too many have died doing their jobs. Such an avoidable, tragic loss of life. Acoustic rock with some harmonica.
Description : Acoustic blues. Martin D10 and me singing. I want my life back.
Description : Acoustic guitar and some singing.
Description : The drama never ends in my country, sad. Change is on the horizon if we want it bad enough. Acoustic rock with some clips from within Ableton. Could probably use some electric guitar or something else to help fill it a bit more but it is fine without it. Pushed the glue compressor a little more than usual on the master channel, Lemme know if it's too much.
Description : My cover version of the Human Sexual Response alt rock classic.
Description : Acoustic folk rock song with my new Martin D10, Fender Jazz bass, some singing and whistling and EZ Drummer on the skins.
Description : A few weeks ago the wife of my friend Jim, who just passed away, gifted me one of Jim's studio setups. She said he would want me to have it. It was pretty emotional listening to recordings he did with me and with other people, hopefully I can find some usable tidbits. Took a month off to absorb it all. Here's an acoustic gospel song along the lines of Johnny Cash approach, all tracks recorded using an AKG C 214 mic. About having a guardian angel.
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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : 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 : 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!
