All About That Bass
I’m a huge fan of the bass guitar. I think it’s the most underrated instrument in modern music. If you took the bass out of 90% of the rock songs between 1972 – 2000, those songs would be completely different. Bass was my second instrument and started playing at 15 years old. My first bass […]
My Computer Kept Crashing…
My computer kept stopping with a “system overload” error as I was trying to record the acoustic guitar part. My Macbook Pro is old but mighty (for a while longer I hope!). I changed some parameters and finished the track. Then, listened back. Horrible. “This sucks, @#$%! it” and I closed Logic (recording software). Then […]

News was starting to get more and more serious about the pandemic and lockdowns looked immenent. Sitting here today, May 31, 2002 about 2 1/2 months later, the world is a much different place. […]
Quarantine Sessions: Inthemiddle
Here’s a song about growing older and stopping to take in the scenery. This is the second song in the quarantine sessions series where I just use my iPhone voice memo to record a single take. Here’s a link to Distrokid (my distributor) and they have links to all the digital services.
Quarantine Sessions: American Girl
After playing all these livestreams, it dawned on me that I could record these raw versions and release them. So I’m doing it. Here’s the deal.. Single take, no edits no studio magic. Just me+guitar+iPhone. First song to be released is a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song – “American Girl.” Here’s the link for […]
