I made this record in less than half the time it took me to
make the first one. And it is at least twice as good. It was fun to
make, it is fun to listen to, and I’m really proud of it. I think
that’s all there is to say about it. I’m not [...]

If you like these covers go check out my ALBUM of original
material. Completely free to download.
Well, it has been number one for two weeks now, and I said
I’d start covering the number ones. And if I’m being honest this
song really was the inspiration for the whole idea. I just don’t

I write songs too.
I don’t have a very good relationship with “popular” music.
Especially recent popular music. But over the last couple weeks
I’ve been thinking a lot about it. For some reason. And I’m
starting to think that it is popular for a reason. It has to be,
right? There has been a lot [...]

I opened a bandcamp page. It is a much easier place to stream
& download my stuff. So far the LP is all I’ve put there, but
going forward it’s very possible I will stop posting tracks here

I know I already posted this song, but I remixed and
remastered it to go along with Black and She, so I’m reposting it.
Plus its really good. So there. The old link will no longer work.
But this one will!

I’m not sure I should admit this, but Green Day’s Dookie is
actually the first album I ever bought for myself in a record store
with my own money. So here is cover number 2. This is a pretty
drastic re-arrangement. Its all acoustic, its in 3/4, and I changed
the melody of the chorus. [...]

So I’m doing 5 covers as a kind of back up to my LP that I
released in Janurary. Five songs from five bands I listened to a
lot in the 90s, that had a big influence on my songwriting in
general, and my LP specifically. The first one I finished is Pearl
Jam’s Black, [...]

I’m trying to learn how to hear it. I figured since I had
some success visualizing it with the waveforms last time around I
could work on hearing it. That way I wouldn’t have to bounce half a
dozen .wavs during my mastering process. If I could hear the
compression I could just put the [...]

So there were four things I didn’t like about that last
version. Three were mix related, one was mastering related.
1) The synth bass was too loud and panned too far left
2) The handclaps were too loud
3) The drums were not loud enough
4) The high frequencies were squashed because I got too
aggressive with the Multipressor

The track I’m using as my testbed is called The Best of All
Possible Worlds. That’s the first time I’ve typed that title out,
and it seems kinda stupid now that I’m looking at it. Might have to
rethink that one. Anyway, the reason I chose this one is because my
“production team” (Niv & [...]

I know my first LP just came out, but I’m working on new
material because that’s what I do. I compose and I write lyrics,
and then I HAVE to hear what it sounds like – not just in my head
or on the acoustic guitar but with a full arrangement. Imagine
having an itch [...]

This is something I did a few weeks ago as an experiment
while I was traveling on business. It was done entirely on my
laptop by clicking in place the synth notes and drum hits (since I
didn’t have my keyboard). I used the laptop mic for the vocals and
layered on the effects to [...]

I’ve been wanting to cover this one for a while. I mean since
I was 13. I tried to stay as true to the three guitar arrangement
on Superunknown as possible, but that was pretty difficult since
I’m not Kim Thayil. So at the end it drifts closer to the Chris
Cornell acoustic arrangement. Having [...]

My lovely wife Stacie and I danced our first dance to this
song, so I recorded a cover of it for her for Valentine’s day.

This is what I did tonight instead of work on new material.

PS – I resisted the urge to turn this into a techno-dance
song, so, you know, be grateful for that much at least.
