Forgot to upload this last track from my friend Matt and I. Instrumental, two acoustic guitars. [more inside]
Solo guitar. One quick and dirty take, recorded with the windows open. [more inside]
We were young. We had a 4-track, a room full of instruments, and several pots of coffee. We'd just learned how to mess with vocals by speeding them up or slowing them down. Things got weird. [more inside]
A version of my still-favorite all-time MeMu song by the inimitable Great Big Mulp, for the June challenge. [more inside]
A very dumb cover of Tonight You Belong To Me, written by Lee David, 1926.
The lazy cracker, banjo-infused version of the Jeffersons theme song. [more inside]
Quick 'n' dirty cover of Mississippi John Hurt's old song played on my resonator guitar. Levels are a bit off, volume jumps up and down a little... but here it is anyway. [more inside]
cover of the song by Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs. Fingerstyle guitar, vocals, banjo. Created for the 2008 Songfight! Gift of Music sidefight.
When I first started playing the guitar I was obsessed with Jimi Hendrix (okay I still am). I spent hours learning as many solos as I could and listened to the blues album over and over again. At the end of the day though, this has always been my favourite Hendrix song. It's beautifully understated, short and sweet! [more inside]
Adaptation (more or less) of an Ogden Nash poem of the same name. Essentially an apology from an aging man who spends his time boring people with the same stories.
A simple cover of a song from Animal Collective's newest album, which MetaFilter greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm. I was kind of reluctant to upload this one, because there are some things about the singing that I don't like (mostly timing and range), but I'm curious to hear what you guys think of it.
This is a lazy pseudo-live cover of the Bruce Springsteen song, recorded on a whim a couple of years ago.
A Magnetic Fields cover I recorded recently. I've been working on my singing for a while, and I was mostly wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to go from here in improving it? Any other feedback is also welcome, of course.
A cover of my very favorite Randy Newman song, which is also maybe the saddest song I know.
Actually this song is not my own. I was just wondering... may I point to a beautiful song by providing my own rendition here ? It was written by Silvio Rodriguez.
A cover of the first verse and chorus of the Gnarls Barkley song, primitively recorded live a while back when I had a cold. My wife was really into the song and I recorded this for her as a goof, but it came out kinda good.
At empyrean's request. I needed a break from mixing my own songs anyway, so I threw together this quick & dirty cover of the Counting Crows song in 15 minutes, and uploaded it warts and all - one take off the top of my head, complete with missed notes, words, and chords. Enjoy.
A cover of a song by Wilco or Loose Fur, depending on how you look at it. [more inside]
Someone asked for more rockabilly. This is a song written by some friends, Los Esquizitos, performed and recorded here by us, with a drum track laid by their drummer.
For the cortex compilation. Recorded today as a quick one-take solo acoustic guitar piece. Hope you like it!
This is a cover of the Disney song, with me on two acoustic guitars. Recorded Dec. 4, 2000.
I'm singing and playing the Reggie Lucas-written hit off Madonna's first album, but I just threw in George Harrison's wistfully lilting lick on the Beatles' "Revolver" classic for fun.
Cover of a gorgeous Wilco song. This is an extremely spartan interpretation. You may need to turn your volume up.
