Burning Fire

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

On Dec 29th, 2011 Jerry and I got together and played music. It had been months and months since we’ve done this. We didn’t structure anything, we just jumped between instruments and played. You can picture me singing, it is easy, imagine you are a twelve year old boy who just realized that the bumps on your classmates chests were breasts and one of the breast carriers is talking to you in the hallway about Mr. Whoever’s head rug. Now, quick, think of the witty thing it will take to get her to touch your hand. That’s me trying to come up with lyrics or anything resembling words on the spot.

On theĀ oppositeĀ end of the spectrum we have Jerry. Some sort of crazy wordsmith for whom the words flow effortlessly. At least, if not effortlessly his mind works so fast that you cannot tell he has to think about them. Here is one example. We didn’t retake anything, this is just what he did. The poor drumming is my vein attempt to beat on things, forgive me, I like a beat in things, even a bad one.

Rainbow Stalking

I’ve been working on this song for quite a while. I’ve laid down more vocal tracks than I can count, but none of them work out right and I guess that’s just the way it is going to be. So here it is without any vocal tracks. If you want to lay one down let me know and I’ll bounce the composition tracks for you to do so.

Sunshine Play

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

My friend Jerry has been after me to include a trumpet in my music for a long time. I think since before we ever played together. After years of trying not to do it I finally wrote a song that really required a trumpet. I don’t think I’m done with this one yet, but this is a pretty reasonable mix so far.

Blue Mountain

Some time ago I wrote a song with Jerry called Blue Mountain about a guy who meets up with his ex-girlfriend and wants to get back together with her. You can listen to it here.
