What Could Have Been



What Could Have Been

(January 2007) I can never get it to sound quite like it is in my head, probably has something to do with my voice, as in, I don't imagine myself singing it, so I'm always going to be a little disappointed when I put it down. Kind of a mood piece, fill in your own details.

Highland Jig

(October 2006) Perfection and impatience don't mix so this recording will have to do. I loved playing this tune for people, and it works very well live because nobody notices the mistakes, not even me. Then I went to record it. OUCH!! Finally I just put it down on tape and mixed it because I didn't want to start hating it. Hope you dig it and ignore the mistakes since I probabally won't record this again, but I hope to play it many times.

Must Have Been Something I Missed



Must Have Been Something I Missed

(May 2006) I continue to write songs, if only just to practice the craft and to work on some neglected forms and 'commercial' content that apparently you need if you want anyone else to consider doing one of your tunes. I'm on the fence in that regard. As a 'singer/songwriter' I don't think it matters as long as you're true to yourself and pleasing to an audience. As a 'songwriter' however, I think it matters greatly. Great works will come when inspiration warrants. In the mean time, I'm getting better at just taking an idea and turning it into a song, as with this most recent. No genre limitations if I can help it (except rap). Hope you like (or accept) it.

The Reedy Shore

(Feb 2006) When I'm in a folksy mood, I think I'm writing a folk song, but you never know what you're going to get when you put it to tape. This was in 'sketchpad' mode for days but when recording, it kind of turned into a song. You will find some very familiar language in this one, as when I was strapped for some maritime adjectives I unashamedly lifted a few colorful expressions from JC, of "Bob' fame. I hope he doesn't mind.
