Another Brick in the Major

Take Another Brick in the Wall parts 1, 2, and 3, jam 'em all into one quick bluegrass shitkicker, throw it into a major key, and you get this. [more inside]

Everything I Do (I Dun Fer You)

Some rollicking bluegrass as a spoon to the heart of Bryan Adams, Kevin Costner, and basically that whole period of the early 90s. [more inside]

You Got It (bluegrass cover)

Roy Orbison gets the lofi FourTrack treatment. This is pretty rough stuff, but has convinced me that with some care You Got It could be a fucking tremendous bluegrass number. [more inside]

Last Known Photo

Banjo + Trombone = Awesome? I'd love your feedback on this new project I am a member of (trombonist). Kind of "new wave bluegrass." I hope you like it.

Keep On The Sunny Side

Suck a Ring

An old-timey, shitkicking, jug-banding, bluegrassy number about oral sex from Courtney McClean and the Dirty Curls, a band in which I play jug, jew's harp, harmonica, and sing harmony vocals. [more inside]

All Day Long

Very short and perhaps sweet. I've been working on this kind of music for a while and this is a good example of where I'm at with it right now. Two Chord Challenge!!! ENJOY! [more inside]

Man of Constant Sorrow

Standard bluegrass ala The Soggy-Bottom Boys. I thought the song might be cool if I darkened it up a bit. It began life as a 12-string and vocal live track, then I flew in some harmonies, extra guitars and bass. This was recorded in my living room on a cheap laptop. I'm not a guitar player or singer. Enjoy!

Wheel in the Sky (bluegrass cover)

As requested by uncleozzy. I'd like to think this is a song sung by a hard-travelin' man dreaming of his girl—a girl with beautiful long black hair, and a high, soaring voice; Old Man Perry's daughter, Stephanie. [more inside]

Trego Mountain

My first attempt at country/bluegrass. Timing is a little off here and there. Based on many trips out to the Nevada desert. No banks were robbed. Send me a note if you like. Peace.

Blessed Every Day

I was fooling around with a dropped "D" and found this little thing there. Ended up writing some kind of lyrics and sang a little bit. Enjoy!

Fume [Beck]

I've seen a few covers recently and decided to dig up this bluegrass version of Beck's Loser B-side masterpiece. Warning: contains the word "fuck", stark depictions of inhalant abuse, and piping hot banjo rolls.

Sailor's Psalm - 5-piece acoustic

I wrote this awhile back. This is the band performing it at our buddy Todd's house (I'm the fiddler player). I was trying to go for something like a ballad, early 19th century U.S. south, maybe. I think it's pretty. He's singin about drownin hi'self, if you were wonderin.

You Are My Sunshine

Let's call it EMOldtimey. Or, really, let's not. It's not a damned clean rendition, but with this old heartbreaker you don't have to be. My pre-verbal niece was purported to love it, and that's good enough for me.

Banjo Lullaby

On preview, this sounds at least 1/4 slower than it should be. Posting anyway. It's my best so far.

LIttle Birdie

Played by my Grandpa. Super Crap recording and he was a bit out of practice, but this is real old timey music from long ago in Western Appalachia. Please overlook the pops and cracks, this is the real deal.

Flatpickin'

As I'm still in learning/practice mode, here's something I recorded to help me practice banjo, harmonica and jew's harp. Anyone interested in bluegrass/old-timey (or whatever) music feel free to add tracks to this and post them. This is such an open-ended practice piece that it could really go anywhere, so be my guest to use it anyway you please.

Abraham Holmes

More low quality, drunken Bluegrass with The Failsworth Pilgrims. Recorded the same night we recorded Diamond Joe - only slightly more sober. We always opened our shows with this one because it lends itself to soundchecking so well. Another rough mix, although we did go back later (drunker) and add the super-camp backing vocals

There's a chicken in the house

Just a little chunk of banjo to take your mind of your Monday.

I'm Going Away

By god, it's a bluegrass song! Thought of it because of this superlative Williams interpretation.

Diamond Joe

Low quality stomping country music recorded drunk and presented here in it's straight-from-the-desk unmixed format. Came out pretty good. Nice rattly drums.
