Sidewinder

Tuned the guitar way down and added some banjo. This song does this thing where it equates "snake" with "girl." Like a metaphor, see. Also: it seems to play better through headphones (possibly because of the use of stereo). But maybe I just have bad speakers.

The most frozenest river around

A song inspired by crossing the frozen river Neva in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This song is short, simple, and basically three choruses and no verses. That's right - screw the verses!

Every artery

A song mostly inspired by having a stressful job where I deal with lots of nervous/frustrated/severely impolite people, and its effect on me. It's a little rough because the main track is recorded on a boombox with a verrrrry old cassette.

Overheated

I recently dislocated my shoulder, and assumed music was out of the picture for a month or two. But I was getting pissed off at not playing, and discovered if I capoed everything up really high and didn't play anything too fancy, my arm could handle short bursts of pickin'. So I made a simple song, part French and part English.

Stuck out on

My lyric-writing "system" has often been dozens of little stickies on the desktop, thoughts, ideas, scribbles... and then sometimes when I'm frustrated I'll make a song made up of various combinations that seem to make sense. Like this one!

Shake your head if yes

A rambling instrumental with banjo, whistling, and a few other ingredients. Mix well and serve chilled.

I'm Going Away

By god, it's a bluegrass song! Thought of it because of this superlative Williams interpretation.
