I just realised that I forgot to post this one – which is a pity, because it’s definitely one of my better attempts.
I’m particularly happy with the guitar – it’s probably the first piece I’ve done where I actually feel like a guitarist.
It was very much written […]
Tonight we have a very loud, raw piece, aiming very squarely at early 90s grunge. There’s nothing but bass, drums, guitar and voice, and there’s a grand total of four chords used. It didn’t require a whole lot of ability to either write or play, but it was fun.
Tonight’s piece is a collaboration between Caitlin and me.
Whilst the performance you hear is entirely me, I’m playing the bassline and chords that Caitlin wrote, and we only didn’t include her bass performance because I accidentally deleted her first (not quite right, but probably passable) take, and subsequent […]
The first one for 2009 is just a quick piece of fun with a delay effect.
Four parts – Dums, Bass, Guitar and Organ, the organ part basically an improvisation.
Not much more to say about it really – it doesn’t really say anything, but it was fun. It’s […]
Tonight’s effort is sadly a little bit on the bitter and angsty side, it’s also probably the most pop rock like piece I’ve ever done.
However, despite all that, I rather like it – it came together really easily, starting with the chorus melody on the guitar. From there the […]
It’s Tuesday! (or it was, four hours ago) and I actually have a piece ready!
This was another 11 hour marathon, though I actually had all the ideas in place in the first hour. I’m not really sure what happened to the hours between 8 and 12…
Anyway – this […]
No, I’m not skipping 13 due to superstition – I did actually do a 13 – over the course of a couple of days, due to being too tired to put in a full night’s work – but it needs about another hour’s work to make it presentable, and I figured […]
So after more than two years, I’ve started the Tuesday Challenge thing (which I still need to find a better name for) again.
This one is just a short improvisation on clarinet and guitar, with a Pink Floyd influenced feel – so well and truly in my comfort zone.
Tonight’s one proves once again that I have no sense of time. I came up with something on guitar, but then as happens so often with me – when I tried to record it, I couldn’t figure out what time it was in..
In the end it turned out to […]
This one kind of morphed quite a bit. It was originally going to be an industrial piece – but I guess it was just a little too far out of my comfort zone, so it ended up turning into something a little more my style.
Another attempt at lyrics and […]
