Lady in Black (Cover - Uriah Heep)Cover of Uriah Heep classic Lady in Black. Utilized Korg PA-600 and Roland GAIA for synth, Fender Strat with Helix Delay to create more synth type sounds. Taylor for Accoustic, Fender Strat for lead guitar, Bass done with Korg Pa-600.
This brought me back to my high school days and my best friend Dana.
Scat On Down The RoadWell, wanted to do something different so time for a little scat. I wrote all the music, performed it and mixed and mastered it. It was kinda fun.
Studied on Scat for a while. Please be gentle.
The United States Marine HymnSomething that I have always wanted to do. Didn't want to wait until the Marine Corps Birthday. Decided to do it now. Goes from a slow deliberate speed to a upbeat rock and roll feel. After hearing a version of the Marine Corps Hymn in Okinawa that had some of the same characteristics is why I decided to do this.
All parts but the drums are arranged and performed by myself.
HallelujahThis is just a song I love so much I just had to do it. Although this is not the blues it was nice to add a touch of the blues to the song. It was enjoyable putting all the harmonies together.

Things aren't always in Black & White. See things in color! Remember you don't always need control, control what you can and let the rest go! Just enough control.
The Blues GrooveThis song was done for my Father-In-Law Louis Dillon, a true military hero who passed away recently. This is a laid back, chill out, enjoy yourself Blues Groove. Hope you enjoy, this is one of my personal favorites.
Little Black SkirtMy First Song that I wrote and my first song I played Lead Guitar. Had a blast doing the song.
This is the remake. Increased speed from 120 bpm to 125 bpm. Found this to really bring the song out better. Also changed the vocals and did some work to improve the quality of the vocals.
