Another song from my early 20s. Going through some old files and finding some stuff that I hope is worth posting on here. I will try
The Cat Stevens classic is a favorite of my grandson, so I recorded it for him.
An older one. Circa 2008
this is the 9th and last song of the album - thanks for listening [more inside]
2020 has been a hell of a decade, and George Harrison's classic is a great expression of relief over the election outcome. Acoustic guitar, recorded on iPad Pro. Video.
it's guitar o rama!! [more inside]
Made this somewhat experimental ambient-ish piece last night, feeling a tiny bit of hope about the world. It's based on slowed-down samples of a hang-drum, with a keyboard part doing most of the rest. [more inside]
more cheerfulness [more inside]
Franz Joseph Haydn [more inside]
can't even manage to be king of regular flies, no .... [more inside]
Hi Everyone, This is my cover of Gene Clark's classic For a Spanish Guitar, a song Dylan praised by saying anyone who have been proud to have written it. All my own playing, and I recorded myself in my bedroom a few years ago. Let me know what you think! Talltaleheart
Spooky music for a spooky night. Lossy video here.
i feel like this a lot [more inside]
Rainy season and the goats are poopin' hard. Turned the tagline of the (human) kids into a small song. [more inside]
well, did it happen 150 years ago or last night? [more inside]
I got this tune from the book "Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes" by Jeff Todd Titon, super fun to play on guitar. [more inside]
The Procol Harum song on solo acoustic guitar and voice. Recorded as an iPad Pro video, reverb added with MicSwap Video Pro, then exported as audio. Fifth take, as evidenced by the exasperated opening.
everyone's got something like a sunspot - maybe [more inside]
This is a heartfelt anthem sung by bugs bunny to elmer fudd about their unhealthy love/hate relationship. I just found and digitized it from a cassette of demos that is old enough to qualify for decent car insurance rates. [more inside]
A little mazurka that fell under my fingers a week or so ago. Thinking about my small circle of friends who have been supporting each other this year! [more inside]
well, look, these things happen [more inside]
This is my response to The-Mother-of-All-Earworms post last week.
Having a cheeky improv session on the piano
Guitar + bass + programmed drums. Instrumental. Gets noisy and saturated at times.

An old-time take on a bluegrass tune. [more inside]
I've been playing around with a different feel for this Michael Nesmith classic. Recorded on iPad Pro, first take, rough vocal.

Music: Arthur Kent Lyrics: Sylvia Dee Originally Recorded by: Skeeter Davis [more inside]
This is one of the first songs I ever wrote. It's called "Future Knocks", written back in 1992. The verses sound sad, because they were about growing up, the choruses are anything but though, about holding on to the moment. [more inside]
A song about brought-back-from-the-dead Blaseball pitcher Jaylen Hotdogfingers whose beanballs now convey a deadly and contagious ailment to anyone she hits. Lyrics by @phasmantistes, and apologies once again to Dolly Parton. [more inside]
Slow burn instrumental. Bass, guitar, my son on keys (he's 13 today!). [more inside]
My old computer choked on even basic things, and that killed my interest in making music. This is a lot more fun when I can throw things around without worrying about it hanging for 30-300 seconds.
I saw a video this evening where someone had a name written, well, so I thought, um, yeah. [more inside]
Ambient instrumental. Just bass + guitar.
A modern old-time fiddle tune, written by Rob Pine and Jim Mullany, played to test my small pedalboard and electric violin. [more inside]
A jazzy bit of fair warning, from the Charleston dugout's own Esme Ramsey Quartet. Featuring Esme on vox and upright bass, Joe Voorhees on piano, Gunther O'Brian on drums, and Antonio "Bony" Wallace taking a solo on his own xylophonic ribcage. [more inside]
I've briefly interluded from my normal style of electronica music in order to focus more on a sort of indie rock sound, because clearly we need more of that totally not done-to-death genre, right? I'd appreciate any feedback, though, as I have a hard time being objective and either love or hate most of my creative output. I've also included an impromptu creative writing piece inspired by the general idea in my head I had for this song. Details inside, yada yada. [more inside]
