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:

Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

Saturday, February 22nd, 2020

I’m getting a Rode NT1-A to mic my vocals for acoustic & singing videos. My SM58 will be used to mic the acoustic. I used the SM58 on the recording below. I thought I’d best do a Slash video given he’s my guitar hero!

Play With Me (video)

Thursday, February 20th, 2020

So my friends joked that when I did the “Jump” solo video, it could have been anybody playing because there was no actual video – only stills! So I recorded this when I got back tonight from work (notice the Bill & Ted t-shirt!). It’s not perfect but I don’t care – it’s good enough. And now my friends say I am good… at “finger-syncing” 😀
