These are projects I have done for fun or as an exercise (or both).
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. These are my renditions of songs I enjoy, written by artists I admire. All applicable copyrights are the property of those artists, and should be treated as such.
|I performed these songs at the wedding of some friends of mine. These recordings were my way of learning them and developing my own versions as I prepared.|
|Willy Porter's "Paper Airplane"||
This is probably the only one of Willy's songs that I have any hope of being able to perform. Fortunately, it has always been a favorite.
|Solo guitar pieces, quickly arranged on a Christmas Eve mid-morning, and glamorously recorded while still in my pajamas.|
|Jefferson Starship's "Find Your Way Back"||
I've always loved this song, and the sound of this era of this band. Assembled a bit at a time, over the course of 2-3 weeks. My friend Kyle helped with the synthesizer part.
|Van Morrison's "Brown-Eyed Girl" (in G minor)||I've always liked this song, but unfortunately, it has been requested and performed to death in cover gigs. So I re-wrote it in a minor key, just to have some fun with it. I'm hoping it becomes a groundswell that takes over. No disrespect is intended.|
|Depeche Mode's "Never Let Me Down Again"||I got asked to re-imagine and record this song as a surprise for a friend's wedding anniversary. This is my blasphemy.|
