This bouncy little groove brings the 2020 50/90 Challenge to a close. I end with 51 songs written in 88(?) days. I've only finished this challenge once before, in 2014. That year I stopped at 50 songs but I got there with a lot more time to…

Short and sweet. Nice and hyper. The mix is a little ratty, but I can live with it on a Tuesday afternoon. Lyrically I think this is the most milage I've ever gotten out of the fewest words. I'm just winning all around. This is the 50th…

I really like the chorus in this one. I don't know if it's the pick up notes in the vocals, or the key change coming out of the verse, but I just dig it. The rhythm guitar is a Gibson ES-335 into a Klon KTR into a Malaise Forever Black Lives…

Did you see any of the articles recently that talked about the John Cage piece? Cage wrote what is unquestionably the slowest piece of music ever performed. A machine was designed in order to play the entire piece and recently it changed chord…

I was going for something here... I don't know what it was, but I didn't get it. It's not the worst thing ever. I like the strummy guitar solos. The chorus isn't so bad. I don't know. I might just be tired, but I think this one is going to…

Here it is in all of its glory... THIS is the song that Mrs R and I had decided was a suitable response to a request to "Upload something HAPPY, stat!!!!!!!!!" I tried to record it back in 2013 when I wrote it. My muse of many years, who…

And here we go - Edith FINALLY gets it... Actually, she's been getting it ever since I wrote it on the 29th May. I thought it would take a week or so, but it proved to be more of a fight than I was expecting. On top of struggling to sing…

The lyrics were off the top of my head so if you're wondering how I really feel, or what I'm talking about... let's just say there's a lot of stupid out there right now and a lot of it has important jobs. Dig? Kinda funky. Not bad. Maybe…

This is one of only two songs from this year's 50/90 that was started on guitar rather than bass. It's also one of three where the vocals were recorded on a day where I couldn't sing in tune to save my life. It's also one of three where the…

I managed to work on 16 songs for this year's 50/90 before I did something strummy in 6/8 time. I've started working on another 21 songs since and I've yet to do another one. That will likely change before today ends. Sorry, strummy songs in…

I like this one, even though there's not a lot to it musically. Mix wise, there's tons going on. Four rhythm guitar tracks, five vocal tracks, four lead guitar tracks, and (really) two drum tracks. Oh yeah, and one lonely bass guitar. I…

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on. Then after the white UI switch I found a couple of tracks had vanished so I moved everything back to this account and deleted v2.
