It has been a rough summer on a personal level, breakup, move out, son gone for 45 days. As always song ideas flow from the places I’ve been. You’ve been a bitch to me all night long Can’t wait to see you I’ll let you know where it goes, hope to have some rejoicing and […]

We have been recording for a couple of weeks. And you can hear some of our first results here. Using my Mesa Boogie 1 x 12 amp for this project. It is sounding pretty large. Set up in a closet two rooms over to get some separation and keep out the bleed through. In addition, […]

Vibe show was excellent

Black Daddy played their first show at Vibe in Highland Park on the 26th of February. Did a set of originals. Great crowd. Driving the Daisies had a CD release that night and Just Groove played a set of super funk. Too much fun. Soon as I can get my hands on some video I’ll […]

Audio sketch #2

20 February, 2010 (01:22) | Fender, New song, The rock music | No comments

Buzz is wide awake on drums for an early morning jam. I am working the Fender Telecaster. The first section is a bluesy rock groove with a Bill Lawrence single coil which gives that throaty sound. The second part is more of my signature sound with a double coil pickup. Audio sketch #2 means unrehearsed, […]

This is my first audio sketchpad!

The sketchpad is where I put down ideas. So this is the new music sketchpad, a way to try out new music. Maybe they become songs maybe not. Feel good enough to record the ideas. And it is my first acoustic effort here. The guitar is my Martin D-15. Check it out.

A breath of fresh air

Finally got to jam a little on some new music. Felt great, the music was sexy. Telecaster was in fine form. More music soon please.

Jam day, a couple of new ideas to bang around

Yes, I’m working with my tele today. First idea uses the bridge pickup, a Dimarzio. The second part starts with a riff using the neck pickup a Bill Lawrence single coil. Bouncy. Singing mostly for the rhythm of it. Bzzz is using some electronic pads just for the ease of it. Not to mention the […]

Fly with me. New original song.

Hey how’s everyone today? So this girl broke up with me, probably deserved it. But I get to write about it in a song. This is the result. And it made me want to get out of Dodge so much that I moved to New York for a couple of years. Until another girl broke […]

Original song, Tonight We Ride

John Grey explorer is the guitar. Love this guitar, love the feel of the neck. It has a Gibson Les Paul thickness with an ebony fretboard. Just feels great. Big piece of mahogany with lots of sustain.
