I put this song out back 3 years ago. I wrote this song, recorded it in Monterey with my dear friend Wade who mixed, engineered, recorded all tracks, created and played all the fantastic guitar parts too! I've added some keys to it now that I am using DAW software and it has spawned new creativity
This idea began as a bass riff/warm up inspired by bassist Pete Way of UFO. Turned it into a song a while back. Thanks to Brian Kunz for the great drum track! If you like it, please share. Remember, music is great therapy. God Bless!
I accepted an invitation to tour Electro Phonic Innovations aka @ep_guitars. Andy Bloch is 1/3 of the mind & design here. He gave us an in-depth look of the shop, saw guitars being completed and even got to demo two different models and they rock! If you've never heard of the EP Guitars, go to www.epguitars.com ~ They are so unique and are what I've dubbed as "The Quintessential Writers Tool" & they play fantastic! One day I want to buy one. That's it for now. Hope you dig the tour?
My latest song... I started with the guitar riff you here on the acoustic. I recorded it at my dear friend Wade Odum's in Monterey, Ca. this past Thanksgiving time. We chose a drum loop, Wade laid the acoustic track down, I came up with the bass line, added some other sections, then he, in his wonderful fashion, combined the E-bow with a slide creating the perfect topping and finishing touch for the song! Thanks Wade!!!!
1st gig with The Swanson's playing bass and oh what a night! Thanks Joe and Angie! I had a blast.
Written in 1983, 84, re-recorded 1-15-2015 with my friend John Burnham, musician & producer at his home studio here in So Cal. He helped with the keyboard & lead guitar & played both, I sang & played the rest, drums (for the first time) I am thankful for all John's knowledge and encouragement!
1st time playing bass at CWC in 20 years. Our cover of Do it Again... I'm on lead vocals... I love this song, thank you Lord for ALL you are!!!
I was scheduled to co-lead, got to pick a few songs. I've always loved this song, the intro is my arrangement & I like it! We had 3 part harmonies, two acoustics, keys, cajon & bass guitar. Mellow, powerful it was. My favorite Sunday since we returned & the Lord moved big time, All Praise to Him!
In my desire to write a "worship" song, this was the result, a different mode for me. I worked on simple lyrics, short lines. One of the first times I actually had a theme, a focused idea of what I wanted lyrically. Usually, the words just come out and I build the story line from there!
I was bassist, keyboards & vocals in Forthright in 1989-1990... # piece power trio, Christian rock. We all sang lead and had tight harmonies. I loved this band... I miss the collaborating and friendship gained... We had great fun and a lot of memories were created!
This cover is Bob Melville's brainchild of the Beatles number. Great job Bob! Simon Pure was the band, Bob on keys & drum programming (2 EM-U units) Jeff Sergenti on guitar & vox, me on bass & lead vox here. Totally fun, crazy ending, 2 mics into the Tascam. We had good tunes, will find more.
I like this song....written, with lyrical help from Julie, my friend on Twitter, in 2012 if memory serves me correctly? Rate the song, not the recording... I am not an engineer. :-)
Divorce, dating, overwhelmed emotions...I've always said "divorce and heart ache will make me millions." Well, not yet...
I wrote this song for a girl I was dating... I think. Written about 1983 ... a favorite of mine.
Circa 2012, Trying (key word "Trying") to think Satriani like, I went for melody & feeling, focused on structured simplicity, yet I wanted a bit of flash so at the 2:48 mark, the bridge has guitar & keys playing identical parts that I really dig! Now 2 just have it be in a movie! What do U think?
I was in a bad place, crying out to God to hear me and deliver me and this song is what He gave me! Recorded on my Tascam Digital Porta Studio, Boss DR505 drum machine, Roland Juno 106 keyboard, 2001 MIM Fender Jazz Bass, Austin quilted top/dbl cutaway electric guitar, MXL 990 microphone...
I wrote this about an old flame back in 1987, rerecorded it in 2012. My friend Bill Sutherland play guitar... check out his Geoge Benson-ish stylings he lays down. Also, peep the short "wah-wah" dual we do at the end of the intro!
Written in about 1987. Juno -106 Keyboard, E-MU systems drum machince, Shure SM-58 microphone, Tascam Porta-studio cassette recorder, 1969 Fender Jazz bass... A favorite of mine.
This song is written by my friend Stephen. I played with him for about a year as a bassist in the worship band he led at Life Point Church, Louisville, KY. in 2012/2013... I've loved it since the first time we played and have added it to my repertoire. Everyone who hears it loves it!!! Thank you Stephen for such an amazing song. This is just a short clip... I hope you all enjoy it.
