Leviathan is a piece I composed a few years ago. I started messing with techno beats in Cubase and started improvising to them. I would say that 90% of this came from one of those improvisations. Score/tab is free at my website.
I am finishing up another album and messing around with album cover ideas. None of these will work but here are a few…
Here is my arrangement of the Pat Metheny classic, Letter From Home. This is a piece I have always wanted to arrange and I finally did it. I ended up transposing and dropping it down an octave to make it work. Score/tab is available at Sheet Music Plus (Click on the picture).
Here is my arrangement of the classic song from the Wizard of Oz. The music was composed by Harold Arlen with lyrics by Yip Harburg. This arrangement is available from Sheet Music Plus (Click on the picture).
Here is something I haven’t posted before: an improvisation with some vocalizing. I certainly wouldn’t call it singing. At some point I would really like to learn how to overtone sing. I can get it a little but it certainly isn’t something I can control. If you are unfamiliar with this type of singing check out this video:
I also love the singing style of Manuel Molina. He just belts it out:
I also love the all-white suit!! I need one of those!
Happy Friday!! Or Friyay!! I actually hate that phrase. I have a friend who says, “I don’t hate.” I’m not above a little hate. OMG what am I talking about???? Is it even OK for a 45-year-old man to use the phrase, “OMG?”
This is the end of my piece, Fun Jazzy Piece. I composed this piece around 4 or 5 years ago. I wrote the original bass line 25 (??) years ago. Maybe 20. I wrote it on the piano but could never really do much with it. About 5 years ago I decided to try the bass line on the guitar and I ended up writing the entire piece in a few days. I recorded it on my “There’s a New Sheriff In Town” album which for whatever reason my bandcamp page is down so I can add a link. Not cool.
I have been making a lot of arrangements lately and I plan on recording a new album next week. The album will be all arrangements and will include:
