A silly, sort of dreamlike / lullaby-ish tune, about weird travels on a bubble-gum balloon. Lyrics: See one time I was chewing bubble gum and it was mighty fine I blew a bubble so big it took me up into the sky So this is the story of where…

A simple guitar groove. Haven't sat in a coffee shop since before the lockdowns, and I miss the atmosphere and the music! This tune feels to me like sitting in a cafe. (Every time I think it's done, I end up tweaking it a bit more in Audacity…

This is a love song for Idaho. Funny thing is I've never even been to Idaho, but I dreamed the chorus and the happy little riff some years ago, and it's stuck with me ever since. So, I filled it in with some verses and an outro that capture the…

A simple one-track mandolin tune. In fact it's the first tune I ever made on the mandolin. I think it would be better with a bodhran drum accompanying it, but I don't know how to play those! Maybe someday this will work its way into something…

Oh yes, nice one. Love that second verse "She’s in the mountains, She’s in the streams, She got singing birds, She got dreams..." ... yeah.

Here's a song I did today. It's fun, not perfect, but I'm digging some of the lyrics and the simple intro / bridge, and especially the outro. Maybe I'll do a better version later, but I'm happy with it for now. Lyrics: You thought it could…

Love the lyrics. I was thinking like this the other day - not specifically for or about me - but I was explaining what Jimi Hendrix's Highway Chile meant to me when I was young (to my wife, she was just nodding, so I'm guessing it was one of those "uh-oh, Andrew's talking about music/musicians again, better nod my head" moments!). And then I was wondering about Neil Peart and how he used to write about stuff like this... and then I wonder how... etc... etc... IN my case, I deliberately stepped out of the spotlight before it got that bright - I miss it but not what it costs... and yep, years later, the music got young again... did I say love the lyrics?

Another silly little tune, this time about the world's favourite stout! (Edit: uploaded a new version. Fixed a few mistakes.) Lyrics: When the sun is up high, in a bright blue sky And you're walking around in Dublin town You got nothing…

The Guiness drinkers owe it to themselves to listen to this, favourite it, and... have another Guiness. The less enlightened need to start drinking Guiness... but remember, everyone, that "alcohol is not a coping mechanism"... doesn't actually apply to Guiness, obviously (because it counts towards your 5 A Day, same as Red Wine and Potato Chips)

Greetings from the Wetband, Pat. Great song, vocal sounds a bit Dylanesque, so you would fit right in with us! We have a "Digging a Well" song.
