I'm happy to present my collaboration with not_on_display: this is our version of a neat little tune that was included in The American Songbag (a 1927 folk song collection by Carl Sandburg); the song there was itself derived from a late 19th-century song by William S. Hays. [more inside]
"Maybe I could be the one they adore—that could be my reputation." I had The Wallflowers' "Sleepwalker" in my head earlier and decided to learn the chords and record it. [more inside]
"Something inside me's changed—I was so much younger yesterday." I learned and recorded this cover of Hailee Steinfeld's "Starving" in a half hour one afternoon last month. [more inside]
Better Than Ezra's "Good" is one of my all-time favorite songs. [more inside]
Request: "I have long wished for a happy, loud, upbeat version of The Beatles 'Michelle.'" [more inside]
Experiment in mood... An ominous political speech. [more inside]
Playing with Garageband's guitar effects. Lots of distortion to cover up my lazy fingers. [more inside]
Playing around with Saturn's Radio Emissions.
Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).
A short instrumental, played over an old tape of me reading something in French as a kid. [more inside]
A not-so-tall song about a short, sweet object of desire. Wait, can I try that again? [more inside]
This is the second song I wrote when I started learning the guitar in February. This was when I could not sing as I played guitar unless I sang one syllable per strum. Starts slow, but the second half is kind of fun so don't give up right away. [more inside]
