This is a rough mix of a track “End of the Dream” for my next collection of tunes called “Americana”.

I hope you like. It’s meant to be nebulous and dreamlike.

 

As it is my birthday this week, The Missus allowed me to spend the kids’ inheritance on a new guitar. Here are a couple of videos of me playing the new guitar.

This is the very first few minutes of me trying my new Fender Bass VI for size. I know I don’t need any more guitars, but it is my birthday this week and I just could resist this beautiful instrument.

Stay till the end for a very special guest appearance! ;-)

This is me improvising later with the Fender Bass VI into a Digitech Timebender and the Boss RC-300 Loopstation to create a new tune.

So here I am taking a look at the latest from Anthony Phillips and the eleventh entry in his “Private Parts & Pieces” catalogue.

I think this is the third version I’ve posted of this. What, you get repeats on YouTube now?

Wait a moment, I can explain everything! I found the original video files and so could make the highest resolution version possible. Here it is in a slightly different edit in stunning 1080p as it was originally recorded.

For those who want to know, this was recorded in two takes: the first was me laying down the drums, guitar synth and lead guitar line and the second take was me putting a bass line over the top. This all took just over twelve minutes in total record time to achieve and was recorded between 07.54 and 08:07 on 05 August 2008.

This track appears on the ever-so wonderful “EchoNET” –

At the beginning of the month, I agreed to record a track for a charity raising awareness of Charcot or Marie Tooth Syndrome. Unfortunately, events beyond my control meant that I couldn’t give the project the time it needed and so I have cobbled together this short piece for their project.
