Another one minute challenge, this one just burst out and was fnished in an hour. Very rare indeed, no keyboards survived the editing process. Your turn friend… what you got?
Dean, at Free Ear Candy wrote this, it is an authentic high lonsome ballad. Not going to explain that term. This is a rare form and unless ya listen to American folk music you will not hear it’s like. My role was to put on some shine. I have not been able to get back in touch with Dean, but he did hear this version and determined it was good enough to share with you. Happy Memorial Day! Best wishes folks.
This track is a Remix of a 2013 composition. The original was done on a Cort nylon and a Ibanez acoustic. This remix is done on a Martin Deadnought with the addition of strings.
i watched a documentary about the unearthig of R3 in a leicester car park last year. A very strange group of people called the Ricardians, whose aim is to restore R3 to a good reputation. They clearly revere royalty and dismiss Shakespeare’s play as Tudor propaganda. They are eccentric but also annoying. My story is a mash up of Shakespeare’s character and that event. The key message from the bard, for me, was that R3 says he was fated to be bad, on account of the horrendous treatment meted out to him on account of his deformity.
I think i wrote this in harmonic minor mode (Mr Daugrin has set me off on a path of learning music theory, for which I am eternally grateful.)
A short instrumental piece, lazy-latin-waltz inspired by a place i used to live, many moons ago.
My 1st “Off the cuff” song from mid 80’s. This one recorded on Tracktion in maybe 07 or so. Lost due to harddrive crash. Only mp3 left so this is a remastered version of that. Mp3 of an Mp3. :).
