Periodical acoustic podcast: Mr. Jones by Counting Crows and Bedroom Of The Sun by me on acoustic

October 23rd, 2009

I was unable to record last week’s podcast, so I did two this week: Mr. Jones by the Counting Crows, and Bedroom of the Sun — an original of mine.  We (Town Crier) are playing Mr. Jones in one of our sets, and Phil Taylor suggested that I recorded Bedroom of the Sun.  Turns out, I think it’s the first recording I’ve made of Bedroom of the Sun since I first wrote it — it was a great trip back to my history, and I think it turned out fabulously.

I am recovering from a cold this week, so the vocals are even less perfect than usual, but I think they still have a great vibe.

As usual, this is just me on my acoustic, in my studio, recorded on my Sony ICD-SX700 digital voice recorder, no modifications other than trimming at the beginning and end.

Periodical acoustic podcast: Dixieland by Steve Earle on acoustic

October 7th, 2009

I realized a few hours ago that Friday I will not be able to do my podcast as usual, so I’m doing it on Wednesday this week.  Another song we (Town Crier, my band) plan to play in one of our sets is Dixieland by Steve Earle, which is a great song about patriotism and just a fantastic story song, so that is what I chose for this week’s song.

Periodical acoustic podcast: Remedy by Seether on acoustic

October 2nd, 2009

This week I chose to play Remedy by Seether.  We are playing this in Town Crier (my band), plus the song pretty much epitomizes modern rock.

Periodical acoustic podcast: Country Roads by John Denver on acoustic

September 27th, 2009

I know I said these would be approximately weekly, but I already had this one done — we played this song at the jam session this afternoon at the VFW in Wardensville.  I came home and recorded it — liked the recording, so I thought I’d upload it too.

The song for this post is “Country Roads” originally done by John Denver.

Again, this is just me on my acoustic, in my studio, recorded on my Sony ICD-SX700 digital voice recorder, no modifications other than trimming at the beginning and end.

Periodical acoustic podcast: I’ll Be by Edwin McCain on acoustic

I am hoping to make this a constant habit:  record a song about once a week just for sharing it here on my blog.

The song for this post is “I’ll Be” originally done by Edwin McCain back in the 90s.  Nothing special, just me on my acoustic, in my studio, recorded on my Sony ICD-SX700 digital voice recorder.

The file is here:  podcast.0001.Edwin McCain-I’ll Be

I learned this song a few years ago, but my band, “Town Crier,” incorporated it into a set list, so I’ve been playing it a lot recently (and singing it), and this is my acoustic arrangement.

No modifications other than trimming at the beginning and end.
