Does anyone wanna Rock?
I would like to play straight ahead original (standard-tuned, for the most part) music. I'm open to what sounds good. I was recently listening Bad Company, and it reminded me that you can get it done with just the basics. I don't mind a mix of styles I listen to lots of bands/ performers. I'm not opposed to covers, but "let's make them our own." I've included a few four-track recordings that I've posted on Sound Cloud. Never mind the drum machine (it's there only to establish the tempo). The last two tracks are from a song writing session recorded in a very live room. The sound quality is a bit off, but the ideas are present.

I play a Parker, Nite Fly; an ESP, LTD Deluxe; and a Jackson, Rhoads; currently through a Peavy Triple Rectifier (the XXX model). Mostly Boss effects on the floor.
RevengeQuick-mix from the ol' four track. Please forgive the drum machine...I've found that it's not a good idea to have a live drummer in your living room at 2:00 a.m.
HanaMore from my Living-Room sessions. Inspired by the film: Grave Yard of the Fireflies. Mixed quite roughly.
Mathilda MayA rough-mix from the latest four track solo (Living-Room)sessions. My attempt at Brit-Pop. ***Opening lyric: "I'd hoped someday to wed Mathilda May."
No Tiny Box
No Tiny BoxRecent four track recording. Rough-mix
StardustThe first track of the solo sessions. Inspired by the impending birth of my daughter. The mix is rough, and there is a drum machine( for timing purposes ).
Nietzsche is dead
Nietzsche is deadA fun track from a solo writing session, and a play on Nietzsche's quote "God is dead".
Steam punkA rushed track from a solo writing session. Warning: the mix is rough and there is a drum machine (for timing, of course).
Turnip HeadMore from a four-track solo writing project. Inspired by a character from the Ghibli film: Howl's Moving Castle... The story of my life. Ha ha.
Time MachineThis is a four track rough mix. Please forgive the drum machine.
