Fingerpickujah

A largely pointless endeavor, a rendition of Hallelujah with quick fingerpicking and banjos (what's new?).

hallelujah was {not} a hoodrat..

Influenced in all honesty by freya_lamb and wilco. And coffee shops. And random bars on 'punk' night with the acoustic Brittney spears covers that no one pays attention to. And the noise. Oh ~ it's half some jens lekman. Also dedicated to tired, exhausted folks with good things going for them.

Hallelujah (drone version)

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.

Hallelujah für Stimme und Streichquartett

I've been in a string quartet frame of mind for the last few weeks. The abrupt end is intentional. Not sure why.

Halleluyeah!

Disclaimer: This started as a semi-serious effort, but quickly turned ridiculous. That's not how I normally play guitar, by the way. Even as a teenager in the 80s I didn't play like that, except in jest. [more inside]

Skallelujah

Hallebritishlujah

my take on the monthly challenge fairly faithful but with some harmonies. One take for guitar and vox, one take for harmony, no level altering (it needs it, it also needs the guitar rerecording, but no time!). Again recorded by singing and playing at my mac. One day I'll set up my recording gear!

Hallelujah, Hoarse (cover)

I thought I'd take one for the team and kick off June's "Cover Hallelujah" Music challenge. This is a scratch recording I made about a year ago when I was home sick and had lost most of my voice. If you ever wanted to hear Excessively Husky-Voiced Cortex, this is your chance. [more inside]

All Undone

For this month's MeFiMu Challenge, here's a song first written in 1986 and first recorded and released in 1991. This version was recorded earlier today. Rewrote the last verse. The old is new again...

Elemental Fire, 2009 version

When I was 12 or 13 or so, I loved to play around with a MOD tracker I'd downloaded. This is a remake of the first real song I wrote using it. [more inside]

Gone Gone Gone

For the April "two chords" Challenge. The two 3-note chords even share a note in common, so we're talking a total of five notes serving as harmonic accompaniment for this song. Played on the strumstick. There's a hoop drum, too, of indeterminate pitch. I posted a lo-fi, live version of this song to YouTube as well, direct from my 6-mat tatami room at home. You can see it here.

Why donchu go

On man.. the first line and the rhythm were written while walking to class three or four years ago in a wisdom tooth Vicodin sunshine. A couple of days before April this year I woke up early some Sunday morning and just started playing the same two 'chords' over and over again (A7#9sus4 (just bar the 5th) and Amaj .. although it probably was closer to Amin/E to Amaj/E). Combine that with a corrupted version of the 'Why don't you move back to Massachusetts!' line from Do the Right Thing and you've got something sounding like early tired Sunday mornings. [more inside]

Everywhere With Helicopter (feat. jessamyn; Guided By Voices cover)

So, what was it, November when the MeFi Challenge was unofficially "requests for covers from other MeFites"? But this goes even further back... sometime last summer, Jessamyn said she wanted to do a cover--with me!--of Guided By Voices' "Everywhere With Helicopter." "OK," I said, "but you have to sing and make jangly noises with things around your apartment." [more inside]
