I was talking on the phone with my dad the other night about business, money and character. I was telling him a story about how I had worked for a public school district for a couple of years as an I.T. contractor long ago. I was making good money and had there was much opportunity […]

One of my favorite songs from the first real band I was a part of (2006-2008). I made this song in my first years learning bass. This band is one I primarily think of when depicting friends that decide to make music together. There’s no music created that’s more awesome than that, no matter what […]
Please excuse the rough recording, it was at a random practice at Amanda’s house. Ended up being one of the only recordings left after I deleted most of our stuff when the band fell apart. I wish I didn’t do that. “The Terrorists” was a rock/punk/alternative band I was a part of in 2009-2010. The […]
I feel like listening to independently created music would be much better if it was performed live. Listening to recorded and mixed tracks with rough and raw vocals/instrumentation gives me an uncomfortable feeling. It’s not the artists’ fault, they’re trying to present themselves as well as possible. The thing is, when I hear heavily mixed/mastered […]
Here’s another track that Post_Dwell and I worked on together. I’m really happy with how this one turned out considering it’s a really rough cut (for the bass track anyway). I feel like I’ve taken a lot of lessons and techniques I’ve learned over the years and put them into practice on this one. Hope […]
Found this guy on Reddit (I love Reddit) /r/MusicInTheMaking and decided to take a stab at a bass part for it. Feels really good to have *something* to work on with someone. I think I played for about 2 hours. Happy.
This is amazing. It reminds me of when my mom used to play this song on the piano – so somber and with so much depth.
Open your third eye, And cry for the first time, Feel the wonder unwind and medicate your mind, Walk bare feet on the grass, breathe each breath, as if it were your last Look to the future, step with the past, only way you miss it is by walking too fast. Two eyes for lookin’ […]
Seems all the ones from When I was young are Leaving Seems that all who sung from The heart soul and lungs aren’t Breathing, Anymore… Is it true That times are gone For honest men? And now even you Won’t sing your songs Again… I’ll try to Keep my head up high Put my sorrows […]
I feel no dumber It’s a sausage cucumber I’ll take a number You’ll never make it And I can’t fake it Don’t try and take it No I’ll never Play to the drummer Play to the drummer I’m winter to your summer Guess I’m that much dumber I’ll take a number
You don’t wanna talk No you don’t wanna talk Got your tail between your legs Guess I put you in your place What did I have to do Were you convincing me Or maybe just you And the ones that used to know you, too I get what you want But you’re stuck in a […]
A little bass riff/loop I came up with. Yesterday I came up with a melody to go over this, may post that later.
This is the original song I was referring to in my Shamus song post (originally called, “Creep of the Shadow”). They share few musical similarities but both have their inspirational roots in the old Commodore 64 version of the game, Shamus.
This riff’s working title comes from the Commodore 64 version of the video game Shamus. My older brother and sister and I would play this game growing up. I still get nervous anticipating the arrival of The Shadow. This loop shares similarities with a song I created in MadTracker a few years ago.
A delicate little tune, starting in the higher registers and filling out with a solid lower end. One of my favorites.
