We are still tweaking the masters, but here's a tune from the soon to be Lewis & Walker 11. Working title for the project is "Shut Up And Sing!" Its all instrumentals. All the red tracks are drums. The green track is guitar and the blue track is bass. The 2 far right channels are a reverb on a buss and a master track. Minimal arrangement. I used a pedal board to change tones on the fly, something I don't have to do in the studio. We jam to the basic structure a couple time, then start recording. For this project, the structure is based on either a guitar lick or a bass lick. We record several takes and pick the one we like best. I guess it is a loosely, quickly "arranged by jamming" and hoping we get a take we like. Its fun playing together. So much of studio work can be done in remote locations, jamming with a live person has decreased. Its loss I'm glad we tried to avoid in these recent recordings. I like this recording because I like the movement of it. The bass plays more notes than I do on guitar. :-) I hope its worth your 2 and a half minutes. Thanks! BigBird mix13.mp3
Greetings. I have a new instrumental and video. The instrumental is a standard 1-4-5 blues progression. I used Wah Wah - which I seldom do - for something a little different and fun. The video is over a small patch of Open Space containing Tollgate Creek. I stopped before crossing Quincy Blvd, but the creek goes under the road and continues to Quincy Reservoir. I never knew there was actually water flowing in this tiny creek. Also featured is the silliness that is "Lewis & Walker." The video is just to give listeners something to look at while listening on YouTube. Its mostly a small patch of of a large stretch of wild in the suburbs. Even though surrounded by "civilization," there are, at times, coyotes in this area, and well as rabbits, squirrels, snakes, and most of what is natural for this climate. The Open Space runs for many miles. This is a tiny piece. It's all fairly simple and easy to play, but big fun. We are mostly doing a trio type CD, with one guitar, one bass, and one drummer, but I allowed myself an extra track for the rhythm guitar. I like the movement in the rhythm and didn't want it to go away when I started playing lead, which is the case for most of the recordings on the new, almost finished project. The resolution of the video goes up to 4K on Youtube if you have a 4K monitor, but the 1080p version looks fine. Thanks for listening (and watching). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zRi3XCCchI
