More Than Words

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.

 

STUDY

 

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…

Beauty and the Beast

Sunday, March 15th, 2020

So in a spare hour I set my little studio up and had a shot at recording this song (Tale as Old as Time), which I love. It’s not 100% perfect but I’m pleased enough with the result and I hope you enjoy it.

More (varied) acoustic tracks to follow in time.

Backstreet Boys

Sunday, March 15th, 2020

I’ve always quite liked a few of this band’s songs. Not very “rock” but good music is good music! Had a few friends round at my place the other day and decided to record a video last-minute. It’s not a work of art – just a bit of fun. There’s an audio edit in there you can spot if you’re sharp. Also mocked up a “bloopers” video with some of the fun “behind the scenes” bits!

 

Will be travelling to Skye soon and potentially have a fortnight in Argentina toward the end of the year, so will maybe try to get some good location-based videos (or at least a Beunos Aries Hard Rock t-shirt!). More videos to come in future (lots more) but lots of musical-related things happening means they might become a little more far in-between.

 

 

 

 

 

Some images from the day (minus the awesome food shots!):

My Love is Like a Red Red Rose

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

A difficult day for me today… my first funeral since that of my wife. At it, my co-worker played two pieces on the accordion for his late father. The second was accompanied by his stepson singing “My Love is Like a Red Red Rose” – it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. Needless to say, I will be adding this to my setlist. It was an honour to have been a part of this.

 

 

Same again by the brilliant Eva Cassidy:

 

 

While I’m on the subject of Eva Cassidy….. this is brilliant:
