My golly, it's been years since I posted here! Shame on me. I miss the MeMu community. I recently released an album of kids' music, and thought I'd share a tune here. It's a classroom song about that age-old problem: cutting in line. [more inside]
Acoustic folk heartbreak. [more inside]
For Valentine's Day, 2012, a ragtime arrangement of two unlikely bedfellows: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and the 1817 JC Lowry tune Pisgah (58 in The Sacred Harp). [more inside]
It's been five years since my last attempt at arranging Auld Lang Syne. I thought I might try to start a small fire under it this year. [more inside]
Just a little thing to keep my Mojo lighted up. (Probably just good enough for sharing.)
Another "get me out of this musical funk" cover. The more I hear Dylan sing this, the more I think this may be his most beautiful song. Here's my try. [more inside]
The third and final installment of my 2009 Valentine's day project. Celine Dion + Rick Astley, as if the internet needed another rickroll. [more inside]
Guitar Rag, with banjo. [more inside]
Classical banjo and fingerstyle guitar arrangement of the Stephen Foster tune. [more inside]
Early morning front porch music... [more inside]
Just installed new strings and set up my new 3-mic stand; I figured I'd test drive 'em both. [more inside]
Another fingerstyle tune from the cassette time capsule. This one was recorded on a six-string with my friends backing me up on cello and percussion.
A fingerpicking tune I four-tracked way back when (1990). [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.
Cover of a Leadbelly tune. [more inside]
