Tried my hand at pulpy instrumental rock.
Ethereal and Haunting, but you can dance to it.
My girlfriend said this would make a good theme song for a new Miami Vice reboot. I'm both proud and terribly ashamed of this notion.
My attempt at a modern new wave instrumental, and a new way of recording with Ableton.
My 2nd FAWM song of the month. A waltz about the ocean.
Experimenting with layering chords together in this short folky uke/guitar song. Also hoping the vocals blend well with the feel of this one.
I'm back after a long absence. Trying to get back in the pop song writing mode. Glad everyone is still making music here! This is my first song in months.
My girlfriend wanted me to write a simple ukulele song. This is it. Short and sweet.
Originally this was a 20's style uke crooner. But now it's um...something else. Straight pop.
This is my attempt at a GBV-style rocker. I put a guitar solo at the end as (kind of) a goof. I hope the musical irony gods will forgive me. Mixing this was a real bitch. I think I could go back and mix this 20 more times and still not be happy, but I gotta let it go. Any specific mixing/EQ advice on this is appreciated.
Short but fairly epic for me.
This started as a waltzy uke crooner but grew a bit bigger. I love the old-timey sound. If only I could add parade instruments.
A VU style riffer. I recorded this a few years ago and just rediscovered it. I am quite fond of this one and the silly, posturing lyrics.
A relationship, coldly thought out from beginning to end, in just 97 words.
Another uke-y croon, mellow and heartfelt.
Improvised song collaboration. I adore the outcome of this moody song. My friend Mark is on vocals, I was on guitar. Bass and piano were added later by me. We literally made this up as we recorded it. Never have made-up, almost gibberish lyrics sounded so meaningful.
More uke-pop about girls.
I always know the tricks you play, but I still get taken. Another poppy (and slightly ominous) uke tune. Hope you like it!
As autumn arrives, it always gives me a feeling of glorious sad sentimentality, almost like a chemical reaction. Whether I actually have something to feel sentimental about or not, those chilly sun-filled days create a longing like a chemical reaction. This song is that feeling for me, when you can't get back the past, but flounder to try. Guitar and vox recorded live with a single guitar overdub.
Another uke tune. I really love the old novelty songs and this is my little contribution to that genre.
Revenge and ukulele.
I grew up when there were only three or four TV channels, no internet. Now people want to be micro-celebrities, and want their privacy to boot.
I started writing songs on ukulele about a year ago after giving up on the banjo. This is the sort of quaint, happy vibe that I like hearing with the uke. And yes, Paul was my favorite Beatle.
This is my first post to MeFi music. I look forward to hearing a lot of great music. This is one of my more upbeat tunes despite the title.
