Featuring Collin Tilton, Van Morrison’s saxophone player on the “Moondance” album. The band did “Moondance” during this show, and Tilton played flute on it; I’ll post that soon! Continue reading “Harvest Moon (Young), Eric Kuhn, Collin Tilton, Eight To The Bar, Live in R.I.”
So you feel sad; you missed the big show tonight …
No you didn’t! (insert smiley face) 🙂
VIDEO AFTER TECH GOBBLEDYGOOK
This is the first time taking this camera into the field. It’s a Canon XA-30 Continue reading “Shake Rattle and Roll! Eight to The Bar (Connecticut) at the Knickerbocker Cafe”
People sometimes ask me why I have a drum kit in my living room. While I prefer to refer to it as Continue reading “Little Miss Hagstrom (A Song)”
I wrote this song three years-ago.
You’ve probably not heard it yet!
It was inspired by my being disheartened about AA, after a dear friend of mine struggled, but no-one could seem to help her.
I have been sober for Continue reading “Bottles In The Air (Original Song Video) (For The Alcoholic in You!)”
Not to brag, but a lot of people like the way I perform in the bedroom. Often with my eyes literally closed, and often all by myself, as you can witness in the accompanying video.
I’ll admit, I’m a little older, and I know what I’m doing. Continue reading ““Pimple Free Pop” Funtime, Ep. 1, Lavigne, My Happy Ending (Music Video)”
This is great.
Both the original studio recording and lyrics are also posted on this blog (search “garden of life!”)
This is a studio impromptu, Continue reading “The Garden of Life (Musical Performance)”
You’re a fly on the wall! The “Pimples and All” Sessions continue!
Feel it Still (Song Workout Session in Studio with Drums)
The instruments enter one at a time … which makes it easy to follow along and “see” who’s playing … what each guitar sounds like … then it takes Brandon about one minute to figure the song out – he’ll start ripping on that Danelectro Continue reading “Feel it Still (Song Workout Studio/Drums)”
Once there was a fat fish
Swam right into
A cayman’s jaws … Continue reading “Fat Fish (An Environmentally Friendly Song)”
Here is a song being born. I’ll do something more with this melody. We came up with three parts (that I can derive from this workout), and I’m sure I’ve got some lyrics lying around somewhere!
I usually write songs words-first, so it’s fun to just play with melodies and come up with fun-sounding things, musically, first, then deal with the words.
This video happened after our drummer left and Continue reading “A Song is Born (Songwriting Session)”
It’s probably best to listen to the video below with headphones or big speakers to get an idea of the Videomic X’s sound; out of small speakers the mix sounds thin – I did not add any compression to the file – this is a raw video file out of a Canon XA-30 camcorder with a a Rode stereo “Videomic X” via XLR to mini-XLR cables.
Camera audio inputs are set to “auto.” Next test with drums I’ll use the manual setting, which, on this camera still provides some Auto Gain Control but I imagine might sound less severe. Continue reading “Testing: Rode Stereo Videomic X”
