Sad slow self-pitying muted acoustic thing!
Strident acoustic guitar rhythm and some vocal harmonies.
Short acoustic number. Background light rail.
Short song about a night out at a bar.
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.
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.
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".
My friend remodeled his bathroom, so I had to record a song denigrating his efforts. Pretty goofy and NSFW.
Old slow acoustic thing. Live the snare.
Recorded this on a first gen MBox with a Rode, years ago. Acoustic guitars and singing and stuff.
Acoustic guitars, a little slide, singing, breathing room.
Birthday song options.
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.
Mid Tempo slightly rockin' thing. Not actually about money.
A relentless acoustic guitar riff and some words.
Weird little acoustic whisper-sing experiment from a few years ago. Born of legitimate frustration.
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.
I do a short song every year for St Pat's, but this time I got exasperated and went meta. Contains authentic swears.
Short, jazzy instrumental song. Just two parts that felt right together. The song is named after the final chord. And STTNG.
Very short hard rock NYE ditty.
Acoustic guitar, some words.
Halloween rock and roll.
Had a riff, needed to use it.
Inspired by Uncle Jimmy's provocative STTNG theory...
St Patrick's Day Party Invitation
I was recently reminded of good times on the Cape. Thought they deserved some hard rock.
An attempted Hendrix-style wedding song for a friend.
Inspired by the challenge. I hope that counts.
Short little thing, decent guitars and frustrating digital drums.
A rockin' tale from the early history of Dallas, Texas.
A reverse audio postcard to a friend on vacation.
The third song in the Rodeo Ford Trilogy, forever changing the way people look at terrible car dealerships.
Live, random Star Wars blues jam. "Luke, you've turned off your targeting computer, is everything ok?" NSFW.
Sometimes it takes a little convincing to get your friend to visit.
A brief musical invitation to a St Patrick's Day Party (after the parade).
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.
Just setup a new recording situation for myself, needed to give it a workout. Dialed in some rock.
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.
A friend tried to bring law and order to his vacation destination.
Gonna be late for breakfast!
Another time-warp alt-rock bruiser...
Random rocker from a year ago. The chorus is a little short.
Another song inspired by the Rodeo Ford car dealership.
Just me and the acoustic. Short and sweet. About a year old.
A rough demo, a single take. My attempt at an acoustic, romantic kind of thing. Inspired by life! Damn those high notes.
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.
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.
I thought I'd toss up a recent demo I'm unsure about and see what the feedback is. There are big problems with the drums, chorus vocals, lead guitar, to name a few, but those are easily fixed, if it's worth it. Sounds like Uncle J on the bass.
