I had this thought this year that maybe I will try and come up with drum parts that don't sound very traditional. Sort of like mid-80's Neil Peart kinda things. In the end there were only a few songs that I attempted something. This is one…read more

Part of the plan this year was to use a real amplifier and real effects pedals on all of the guitar parts. Recently I have been becoming obsessed with uni-vibe style pedals. I used one on this song, a cheap thing called a Shaky Jimi. I used…read more

I like this one, but at the same time... I don't. It's just not quite good enough. Not as good as I was hoping at least. I dropped it from the RPM album. The amp is a Fender Bassbreaker. The rhythm guitar is an ES-335. The lead is a…read more

I was a prog rock fan for years when suddenly in high school I got really into what would eventually be called Alternative. It was so weird to me that music so uncomplicated could be so good. Some songs were even made up of one phrase repeated…read more

I don't hate this one, which is high praise this year. It's okay. The rhythm guitar is an ES-335 through a Joyo Vintage Phase pedal. The lead is a Les Paul through an EHX Soul Food pedal. The amp is a Fender Bassbreaker. Don’t know what…read more

If a Uni-Vibe pedal modulates the pitch, how do you double track with one? The answer? Very carefully. Actually, I just did it. I used the same settings on both guitar tracks and panned them both hard to one side. The effect was a kinda groovy…read more

The inspiration for the lyrics to this mess was a tweet from someone named Adrian Bott that stated, "'I never thought leopards would eat MY face,' sobs woman who voted for the Leopards Eating People's Faces Party." This one isn't so bad…read more

This is an early favorite for the "stand out track" title. I like the groove quite a bit. Although I was literally falling asleep while mixing it so who knows if it sounds okay or not. I am in love with my new little Fender Bassbreaker 15…read more

Double tracked Wah-Wah. Pretty much the high point of awesomeness. Les Paul through a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe wah into a Fender Bassbreaker. Give it up now Everything that you care about trade it in for make believe and fairy tails…read more

Oh yes those are LP’s allright. Sound great!

Eh. I thought it would be cool to write something in drop D and then play it on a 12 string. Then I could drop two D's! HarHarHar. The lyrics are about how scary some of Donald Trumps followers are. If he wins in November I'm moving to…read more

Another cool track

This one had throw away written all over it from the first moment I thought of it. It's my second entry in the Ice Cream Chords challenge over at FAWM.org. I kept this one in Major and it's just as fruity as one would expect. The lyrics are…read more

I'm really disappointed in this one. I don't like it. I wrote it last night and recorded it today. I think if I changed the lyrics to be about hookers I could probably sell it to Poison or Motley Crue. I feel dirty and ashamed of myself…read more
