Acoustic cover of Christopher Cross’ classic, “Ride Like the Wind.” I did this randomly one day and probably could have done a better job of it if had prepared more but hey. I left off the last verse to keep the video concise. Enjoy!

Acoustic Cover of the Beatles’ classic. This has always been one of my faves of theirs and holds some meaning. I did it in two takes, as honest as possible. Enjoy.
“Cheers” theme tune acoustic cover. I remember watching this show as a kid and always thought the song was somewhat heartwarming. Enjoy!
Toy Story song by Randy Newman.
Acoustic cover n my Larrivee OM-02.
I wrote the guitar part based on a live piano performance and I’m quite happy with it.
Silly Wizard’s “The Queen of Argyll.”
I originally heard North Sea Gas do this one.
I absolutely love this romantic Celtic-sounding tune.
Unfortunately I got the last two lines of verse 1 wrong but oh well!
I played this on my Irish Avalon guitar and tried using the SM58 for the vocals this time (I think I’ll stick with the RODE for vox just due to its mounted pop shield).
The image on the PC screen isn’t related to Silly Wizard – somebody else created it for some game but I liked the look of it.
A strange but satisfying song by Crash Test Dummies.
On another note, I found this kick-ass picture of me dressed as Slash at a gig! I’ve got more acoustic songs on the backburner and a few electric solo videos to do at some point and have been doing yet more drums and a bit of bass for the album. Slow and steady wins the race on this one..!
Here are links to the higher-quality audio files of my acoustic covers. The YouTube videos have distorted audio due to my video editor. I need to add a few tracks (“Sunglasses at Night” and “I Want it that Way”) and will do so in time.
Great song from Extreme. Tuned my guitar down to Eb as per the original track and was still a tricky one to sing. Enjoy!
This is where it all happens… I design advanced integrated circuits on this super-computer for work and it doubles up as my music station.
I’ve suffered an arm injury which should heal soon enough so I’ve been doing a lot of singing practice recently. I don’t pretend to be the best guitarist or singer but I am always working at it and hopefully you see an improvement with each video and recording I do. In tandem with this, I am working diligently on bass and drums for my album. It’s getting closer and it’s sounding good…
What a great song by Gordon Lightfoot.
