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

Another weird, haunting indie folk song from yours truly! There is also a weird, haunting music video located here. This is all part of my first official release, which I am super excited about, under my stage name MK Ellison.
Post of the week! This is a new (and improved?) version of a song I posted quite a while ago (as "Drinking all day"). Light, airy, one-chord country song with moody lyrics. Added second guitar part, violin, harmony vocal. I think I'm getting somewhere with my recording capabilities--what do you think? Any thoughts on the mix?
As long as I am posting moody, folksy songs with voice and guitar...here's another one!
In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [more inside]
An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]
So a good long while back I posted an early demo version of this song. This, right here, is the final finished product that is on the EP. [more inside]
Me back in country mode. Written by a band of a friend of a friend long 6 years ago, Sixty Acres. Recorded tonight. Even missed Must See TV! [more inside]

A happy fun cover of a Meat Purveyors song. [more inside]
In the summer of 1996, less than one year before he died, Jeff Buckley wrote and recorded this song which was released for free on the Internet, but never on any of his albums. [more inside]
More from the woodshed Jimmy Rogers we liked. The Early Puritans go country. [more inside]
Another song recorded live at the cabin for the album. [more inside]

A tribute to classic country music. [more inside]
This is not the happiest song I've ever written. [more inside]
Bluesy folksy track, an ode to Johanna [more inside]
I am re-uploading this song. I wrote it a while back and recorded last weekend. I'm just learning to record, so the guitars are a little quiet. Tips would be very welcome! I'm stoked I get to re-post, since I spelled "Abilene" wrong last time.
More music from Chris Knott. He plays everything on this. I helped clean up the mix.
Low quality stomping country music recorded drunk and presented here in it's straight-from-the-desk unmixed format. Came out pretty good. Nice rattly drums.
