    this isn't cookie cutter its a cover but totally different- I just did this recently. As long as it rocks Im down with it. Not much into pillow talk rock but there is a time and place for everything.

    Here's a recent original from 8/18. Keyboard player wrote it.

    Well! So who really listens to much music by the members here? I listen when I can, but how can anyone really take the time to dig into another artist's, or a band's efforts these days?.... Seems to me that all of us who post anything are lucky for even the proverbial 10 second perusal....


    That said.... Here's what I'd think is a pretty listenable rock/pop tune I wrote for my band's latest cd, released this year, where I attempt to channel Jimi Hendrix to compliment one of my two lead singers. Personally, I think I got it pretty good! However, corporate america has zero interest.... and I have zero interest in corporate america! And thus - almost no one hears the tune..... oh well!

    I'm going to risk my neck here and attempt to give some constructive criticism. I liked the song, I like the singers's voice. I'm listening on a laptop, so it's very much like listening to a car radio...which is what producers did way back when radio was it.

    I think the song would come across with a lot more power and emotion if you played on the neck pickup to counterpoint the tone of the singer's voice. The middle position tone was more of a distraction for me because it was too thin for the emotion of the song. Dig in and complement the full voice of the singer.

    My opinion...take as you will. The playing is very good. The first few seconds is the opportunity make a huge impression on an A&R person. Grab'em by the throat and make them pay attention.

    I disagree. I like it with middle pup. The whole Hendrix-y neck thing has been done to death. Yeah, there is good reason why, but I like me some middle!

    Great singing & playing all around! It sort of reminds me of Gregg's Eggs.

    Here's an acoustic/voice demo of a song I wrote awhile back. I did a fully produced version of it too, with bass, drums, piano, strings etc, but I don't have a video for it on YouTube. "My Name in the Sand" is a metaphor for what we are all chasing via our artistic creations, which is a form of immortality.

    Corporate America is missing the boat these days as far as Innovative music goes. But look at the bright side, it's more of the pie for you when you self produce and handle your own merch. That's where the best stuff is coming out these days, not from Corporate America produced fluff.

    Cool tune, great playing, definitely worth listening all the way through. Keep it up!

    Okay, this is an electric guitar song, but I'm going to plead non noodling here, since the solo part has some actual phrasing designed to work around the changes.

    Actually, it's a Bugs Henderson song. I didn't copy his solo, but I tried to phrase it in the same spirit.

    Also this was recorded live at a local Club, clams and all. Hope you enjoy it, thanks for listening.



    DISCLAIMER: No distortion, dirt, delay or reverb pedals were used here. Just a Gibson CS336 straight into a 50 watt Plexi driving a couple of celestion G1265's in an open-back cabinet.

    The songs could not be more different. Minor key vs. major key. Totally different moods and colors.

    But...You're free to disagree. Even if you're totally wrong...lol.:p:D

    Oh definitely, I was referring more to the girls' voices, not the songs themselves. Aside from that, I ran out of time and had to do some work, seeing as I was at work. There's probably a much more similar sounding song on that cd. I just didn't have any more time to dig for it.

    Maybe some of you consider this noodles, maybe not. I don't. But I'm invested. Anyway, absolutely not cookie cutter. Adventurous improv based rock that incorporates many styles. Like it or don't. Hope you do though. This is from a gig last night.
