Say When

Just in time for the first day of Autumn, here's a fuzzy, sunny love song that I made for you. Give it a listen and hang on to that Summer feeling for another two-and-a-quarter minutes. [more inside]

Thanks to the Wishing Well

If not for MeFi Challenge deadlines, I might never actually finish a song. This one has only two chords (D and G). Instruments used, in order of appearance: Autoharp, marimba, marxophone, triangle, glockenspiel, and accordion. [more inside]

I Gave You Lots of Presents (But You Left Me In the Past)

A tale of love long lost. If you're going to try and buy happiness, remember to keep the receipt. Autoharp, vocals, and a little bit of honky-tonk toy piano. [more inside]

Which Would You Rather Be?

Just in time for Election Day! This is a nice song to sing on your way to or from your local polling place. (If you sing it at the polling place -- or at work, or really in any polite company -- you will be frowned at, at the very least.) If you've already voted, that's okay -- you can sing it while watching the returns, or simply learn it for next time. If you're not in the United States, that's okay, too -- it will probably still apply. [more inside]

The Girl at the End of the Road

I guess this might be interpreted as a stream-of-consciousness horror story. There's maybe three or four different autoharp tracks here, including a distorted autoharp that I really dig. And a backwards autoharp! These autoharps say "Happy Halloween!" [more inside]
