Jam Session #2

Jam Sessions
Oh, you would like to listen to one of my many songs-in-progress? You want to hear a kind of crappy sounding, shortened, semi-live, no-vocals version of it? Well, here you go. Right now, I’m referring to this piece as “YDWK.” What do you think? Whatever album it ends up on, it’ll partner well with another unreleased song that I like a lot called “Eff It.” Tell me how much you love it, hate it, or don’t care about it in the comment section below or on Twitter or wherever you want.

 

P.S. Blast beats are awesome.

Jam Session #1

Jam Sessions
Hi. Are you interested in listening to miscellaneous audio recordings of me jamming in my “studio?” Then you’ve come to the right place. This is the first in what will probably be a long series of blog posts dedicated to recordings I’m currently working on. Since I’m in the process of getting Boobs, Butts, and Feets remastered, getting a collection of cover songs out there for you to listen to, and working on new music, I’m always jamming out.

For me, jamming out can be noodling around on a 6 string guitar, or a bass, or even experimenting with beats and synths and electronic sounds. Sometimes I might even jam out on vocals. I don’t always record my guitar playing, but if people seem to enjoy listening and reading about what I’m playing, I’ll do more of these.

Today’s jam session is comprised of a short drum loop and me playing guitar over it. The audio was recorded by my iPhone positioned somewhere between my PC speakers and my guitar amp. All things considered, the actual recording isn’t too bad. Even though it clocks in around 4:30, it doesn’t explore much. It’s mostly just playing around the chugging introduced in the beginning to varying successes. The entire session lasted about 15 minutes, and you’re not missing much by not hearing the other 10 minutes, trust me.

Without further ado, here’s the recording. Let me know what you think in the comments, on Twitter, or on my Facebook page.
