I’ve got a couple of very short mp3’s that you should check out. Both of these were recorded within the past couple of hours.

The first one is Riley being Riley. He wanted me to record some music he’d written. At the end of each “song” he would yell out what I’m sure is soon to become my and Angel’s new catch phrase. I just clipped off the end of each “song” and put them back to back so you could hear the evolution of the thing. He is a complete spaz so all the racket you hear in the background is him jumping up and down as he performs.

The next thing is what will soon be the finger-picking guitar part for the pre-chorus of my new tune called Sin No More. I’ve been kinda fascinated with this style of playing since around Christmas but this is the first song I’ve written that incorporates it. Before I recorded this I had just figured out how I want to play the pre-chorus so I recorded it as quickly as I could while it was still under my fingers. I rush the part pretty bad and it’s rather sloppy but it just my way of jotting it down. I think it’s kind of cool.

Yesterday Chris Gustave came over and spent the day with us. That was super cool. He hadn’t been to the house in years so I was excited to get to hang with him again. We had quite a bit of catching up to do and quite a lot of pig parts to eat so we did just that. I played him a bunch of demos from my new record and he seemed to approve so that was certainly encouraging. He’s got a big opening coming up in September and said he’s going to have quite a few new pieces so start saving your money now.
