Weekly Acoustic Podcast: Episode 1 – “I’ll Be”

January 15th, 2010

As many of you know, I’ve recently started to build a bigger fan base (well, a noticeable fan base) through Facebook.  In that effort, I’ve decided to start uploading my podcasts to YouTube to make them easier to share.  So, I’ve decided to “rerun” the previous podcasts and rename (quite strikingly) the series as “Weekly Acoustic Podcast.”  (I know, catch your breath!)

Anyway, the process of rerunning should take 2-3 months, and after that I’ll begin uploading new material.

This week’s song is “I’ll Be,” originally performed by Edwin McCain in the 90s.  It is one that I sing with my band Town Crier.

My podcasts are recorded as just me on my acoustic guitar in my studio on my Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.  Enjoy!

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

September 27th, 2009

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.
