True Love Will Find You In The End (Daniel Johnston Cover)

If you know of him, you may have an opinion that Daniel Johnston is a outsider genius, a troubled victim of hipster exploitation, or simply a not-so-typical independent musician who found his audience. If nothing else, his work is irrefutably full of sincerity and emotion. This little piece of his is one of the great American songs. [more inside]

Face of Appalachia

Discovered that my new Focusrite will covert old cassettes to digital. This is from around 1978, my friend Karen and I covering a Lowell George and John Sebastian song that I learned off a Valerie Carter album. [more inside]

Gotta Get A Message to You

I thought I had uploaded this 1998 live living room recording but I guess not. Yet another example of my old band's Bee Gees fixation. [more inside]

High and Dry

A cover of Radiohead's H&D on resonator guitar in open G, for the minor/major challenge. I originally intended this to be a shitkicking country stomper but it turned into something quite different. [more inside]

Such Great Heights (cover)

I've always had a soft spot for this Postal Service song, so here's an acoustic cover featuring resonator guitar, pump organ, and ten copies of me. Lighters out for the last chorus, please.

Bad Romance & Pisgah

For Valentine's Day, 2012, a ragtime arrangement of two unlikely bedfellows: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and the 1817 JC Lowry tune Pisgah (58 in The Sacred Harp). [more inside]

Don't Disturb This Groove (Ex Machina Mix)

A few weeks back, I bought an acoustic-electric guitar. I want to go back to the songs where I faked guitar parts and replace them with real ones. I posted this cover of The System's "Don't Disturb This Groove" a long time ago. This new version changes the strumming style enough to necessitate the addition of a bass part. [more inside]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Cover of the Ewan McColl classic, at the original speed for once. So I know covering a classic like this is pretty dumb -- how you gonna compete with Johnny Cash, Peggy Seeger and Roberta Flack? But I was really curious about something I read, so I wanted to try an experiment. [more inside]

Fear of Falling

By chance I just came across this recording I made over a year ago. The song is by the chronically underrated I Am Kloot.

Barley & Grape Rag

A cover of the Rory Gallagher track. I decided to learn this tune instead of doing some proper work today. I think I definitely need to find where I put that pop shield....

rabo de nube

Actually this song is not my own. I was just wondering... may I point to a beautiful song by providing my own rendition here ? It was written by Silvio Rodriguez.

The Model

I've been out of the game for a while, so I thought I'd warm up by covering the Kraftwerk classic acoustically. I thought I'd try some alliteration aswell...

Monkey

At empyrean's request. I needed a break from mixing my own songs anyway, so I threw together this quick & dirty cover of the Counting Crows song in 15 minutes, and uploaded it warts and all - one take off the top of my head, complete with missed notes, words, and chords. Enjoy.
