Proto Man: An Empty Home

It is tradition among my people to collect 8-bit chiptune soundtracks that contain brilliant music, and learn and arrange them so that others may find joy in their melodic beauty! [more inside]

My Girl's Blues

A little rough, a little raw. Just a little old-time blues instrumental.

Mean to Me

Back to practicing new repertoire with my freakishly adorable guitarist Barry. Yay! Sooo, here's a pretty straight and peppy little version of an old standard tune by Fats Waller. [more inside]

Calhoun County Blues

This is a true story of my ventures right after Katrina. I recorded the tracks yesterday on my birthday. It is a condensed version of the song. The original story still continues today while living in Kentucky

Burn This Bridge

My first one in for the mefimusicchallenge! I won't get a chance to play with this before the end of the month so I'm going to post it as is, I think there's a lot more that can be done with it (aside from generally cleaning it up a bit) but I'd love to hear what you guys think!

Cross the 6s

The same old story. Boy meets girl. Boy seduces girl. Girl does one better and seduces the boy. In this case the boy is the Devil hisself.

Love You To Death

A real dirty blues track about murder, complete with slide guitar solo and a nice heavy beat. It's still a rough mix so will have to tweak a few bits and pieces.

blues a la basie

The Count Basie variation of the standard blues changes. Just two guitars, solo and rhythm.

real book

Hi, This is not what you can call a song : rather a collection of recordings pasted together. As in the Real Book, some standards are included. But this track also includes sounds taken from the real world, like a street scene, or rehearsals. It is a deliberate effort to try to match apparently unrelated recordings, from different sources. The Real Book, paradoxically, features charts for some idealistic land. Here, I wanted to use sounds both from the inside (music) and from the outside (raw field recordings) to see how ironically they are related and to provide some contrast. What you're about to hear : a saxophone playing Don Quichotte, a late night Dulcinea, two versions of a standard, and guitar comments.
