Your Phone

Quasi-rock song with awkward, loping rythm, questionable tuning, and lyrics to nowhere. Utilizes the f word.

Owe

Sad slow self-pitying muted acoustic thing!

Strident acoustic guitar rhythm and some vocal harmonies.

Trust

I've tried a couple different things with this progression, finally found something I can live with. Rock guitar, drum machine, and all that jazz.

Far Behind

Just echo-y acoustic guitar and futzy vocal preamp in a short song about moving on.

There's a picture of two guys, one has a grey shirt and tan jacket, the other the reverse.

Happy New Year #2

I posted a rough version of this song a while ago, finally got around to doing it right. Acoustic guitars and untimely holiday blah. Contains "fuck".

Matt's Bathroom

My friend remodeled his bathroom, so I had to record a song denigrating his efforts. Pretty goofy and NSFW.

It won't be the same

Old slow acoustic thing. Live the snare.

I Want Tacos

Recorded this on a first gen MBox with a Rode, years ago. Acoustic guitars and singing and stuff.

Go Away

Acoustic guitars, a little slide, singing, breathing room.

Happy New Year

I was going through some old stuff and liked this one more than I remembered. Once I saw the September Challenge, I had to post. Acoustic guitar with countless f-bombs.

I Need More Money

Mid Tempo slightly rockin' thing. Not actually about money.

Look

A relentless acoustic guitar riff and some words.

You Never Laugh

Weird little acoustic whisper-sing experiment from a few years ago. Born of legitimate frustration.

Favorite Song

An old "wall of guitars" rock demo. Come for the fuzz, stay for the drum machine.

A short rock tribute to Cop and a 1/2.

St Patrick's Day 2013

I do a short song every year for St Pat's, but this time I got exasperated and went meta. Contains authentic swears.

Dan Fogleborg

Short, jazzy instrumental song. Just two parts that felt right together. The song is named after the final chord. And STTNG.

Cape Cod

I was recently reminded of good times on the Cape. Thought they deserved some hard rock.

Sustain

Short little thing, decent guitars and frustrating digital drums.

Rodeo Ford dot com

The third song in the Rodeo Ford Trilogy, forever changing the way people look at terrible car dealerships.

Is Everything OK?

Live, random Star Wars blues jam. "Luke, you've turned off your targeting computer, is everything ok?" NSFW.

Dracula is a Friend of Mine

We started out trying to make a song about the old Nintendo game Rygar, and there's still parts of that in there, but at some point it got mainly concerned with Dracula.

What to do with you

Just setup a new recording situation for myself, needed to give it a workout. Dialed in some rock.

Beach Casanova

Sometimes there's a man - I won't say a hero, 'cause what's a hero? - but sometimes there's a man. A man on a beach. A Beach Casanova. NSFW.

Random rocker from a year ago. The chorus is a little short.

Another song inspired by the Rodeo Ford car dealership.

Oh, but to begin!

Just me and the acoustic. Short and sweet. About a year old.

My Soul Awoke

A rough demo, a single take. My attempt at an acoustic, romantic kind of thing. Inspired by life! Damn those high notes.

Too Many Notes in Your Sad Song

Somehow I got it in my head that the challenge theme was "too many notes" instead of "lots of notes". So I wrote and recorded this song and felt like an idiot when I came here to upload it. Enjoy.

I Run

My main anxiety with regard to music is the unintentional ripoff. I'm fairly comfortable with my particular playing & singing skill levels (though the lead guitar on this one makes me blanch), meager may they be, but, especially with simple progressions (like this one), I have a hard time believing it's not overly derivative of... something. I suspect this is incurable.
