“Fire And Rain” – Weekly Podcast Episode 19

May 21st, 2010

This week I picked the infamous “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor, because, you know, I play it so much better than he does!  lol  Or not.  Anyway, we have the same initials … that works right?

Ok so I learned this song long ago … probably one of the first more complex guitar songs I learned, back in my finger picking phase.  Then I was playing live one night, and someone requested a James Taylor song, and this is the only one I recalled.  I got a lot of compliments on it, so I thought I would try it here.

I think it’s a fair version … there are a few mistakes/weak spots, but I’m not gonna tell you where if they’re not blatantly obvious (which they are!)  And … I think I’m going to stick to my new way of recording, even though it does kind of make the videos seem lip sync’d.

So let me know what you think!

June 14th, 2005

Ok fine I will admit a few of the projects I am working on. (No, none of them are even close to ready). I have an instrumental album under works, I have an album focusing on anthropomorphology that should shed some light on the human condition (but hell philosophers have been doing that for years and the human race continues to wander in the dark), and I have an album focusing more on emotional issues–something I do not generally express well. Contrary to that, however, some have really expressed excited sentiment to my “Endless Rain” track on Heaven.

Anyway, hopefully this will whet your appetite. I do hope to record soon, but honestly given where I am living currently and how things are set up I just don’t feel the necessary comfortableness I usually need when I record. Everything doesn’t feel intuitive, just very forced. But here I am, hoping. Wish me luck or something that means all will go well for me.
