The banjo is probably my weakest instrument, so it's a good opportunity for a challenge. So I picked up a song I've never played on banjo and gave myself an hour to think on it and see what happened.

Late night tuneage - an update of a rough draft of a song I've been intermittently playing around with.  Loud noises for night owls.

It's about the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Wicked Witch of the West working out some anger issues in an art therapy session with Bob Ross.

I should be keeping track of the instruments I've used in this recording project.  I'm doing sessions after hours at the music store where I teach lessons, so I have access to a wide variety of instruments to record with.  Several of the instruments I've used have been sold already.  I wonder if the owner would have liked to know what their new axe had been doing.

For example, since I recorded these tracks, the banjo, guitar, bass, and mandolin that I tracked with have all been sold.  I should start leaving notes on the instruments saying they've appeared on record and with the bandcamp address for the songs.  Customers might be interested in that.  Maybe some of them might buy a track or two (or the whole album, when it's finished).

There's a gorgeous Rickenbacker bass in there now, and it sounds so nice I've been recutting a lot of previously finished bass tracks with it.

Here's another demo - a calypso tune. There's no lead instrument at all yet, I'm still not sure what instrument I want to do the lead, so right now it's just two ukuleles going full tilt with bass and drums. 

In the end this may go to another singer, or be recorded again in a different key. Or it may continue in its current form, with some mistakes fixed, and be okay. I hear it differently on different days.

Hey, night owls.

I produced this album a couple years ago for my friend +B.J. Holland. It's groovy, I really like the songs he writes. And Mr. Brian Mallard at Luminous Studio did a great job engineering the tracks.

There's some new stuff coming up from His Beejness in the new year, and to whet your appetites he's put this album on sale for a couple of days - right now you can download the whole album for five bucks.

Here's another work in progress.  A little different from the others I've posted - covering a lot of musical territory on this project.  Needs new drums, but the big things I haven't recorded yet are lead guitar and backing vocals.  Going to have a friend who is an excellent rock guitarist sit in on this one.

I love this.
 
This is wonderful. Calvin and Hobbes animated using the actual strip as keyframes.

Also: I miss Calvin and Hobbes.
