    RoughMix 156 - Jericho Drafts

    RoughMix 156 - Jericho Drafts

    A few days ago I was asked to write a song for a church service about Joshua 6.

    This episode has me recording the bits and pieces as I worked on them - in all 4 clips.

    Next time I will put it all together - but now you get to hear the dirty roughs complete with missed notes and bad rhymes.

    Enjoy!

    RoughMix 155 - He's Not Here

    RoughMix 155 - He's Not Here

    The mandolin is new about a week old, and I do not know how to play yet. But this was a way to get a new entry point into a song and that is what I do as I created this very raw tune "He's Not Here"

    RoughMix 154 - Tool of the trade

    RoughMix 154 - Tool of the trade

    This episode has me playing with a unique capo which allows each string to be pressed individually, and I use it to replicate a DADGBD tuning without tuning (granted the key is different, but you will get the idea...)

    I find that mixing things up gives good creativity and that is what this episode is dedicated to!

    RoughMix 153 - Camille's Song

    RoughMix 153 - Camille's Song

    I am to be the proud godfather of the lovely Camille and her parents chose for her dedication the verse Psalm 91:11

    The dedication is taking place in a German church so the song is is German (as is the mom as well.) The dad is French, but as I do not speak French I am not even going there - it is stretch enough for me to write in German!

    In this episode I went to the Bible itself and decided to take the exact words and use them, and ony them in the song. But this still left me with the abiltity to arrange the words as need for the musical beat, and this is what I did.

    This time around I did not record the first attempts at the song. I did not have anything with me to record it, but what you hear here is the third generation. (I even asked my daughter to listen to the 2nd gen so that at least two of us would have heard it in case I forgot something - it would not have helped at all, but fortunately I was able to remember the tune - it somehow sat in my head.

    What is a first in this version is the very last bit where the name of my godchild is sung - I was hoping to find a way to make this more personal and this is is how it now stands.

    I hope you like it, but more important to me is that the family finds it as I intended it - a song to accompany the child into her adulthood!

    Just a note - I am finding the podcast host I am working with to be too expensive so I am slowly moving archives off to other sites. Do not be surprised if you no longer find all of the episodes on this site / feed. I have given several alternative ways.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

Up close and personal

The really cool thing about this podcast is that Brian manages to catch some of his stuff directly after he creates it, which adds a whole new feel to the way the music is experienced. Just listen to "Good Night My Friend" to see what I mean!
