“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!

Weekly Podcast Episode 12 – Symphony Of Science “We Are All Connected”

April 2nd, 2010

That’s right!  I am a nerd … I COVERED the Symphony of Science 😀

So there’s a lot to mention this week.  First and foremost, I recorded this on my baritone guitar (Ibanez Mike Mushok MMM-1) which is electric, so I can no longer call the podcast the “Weekly Acoustic Podcast.”

Secondly, I actually recorded the video!  Yeah, aren’t I sexy?  🙂  So the upside is the podcast is a lot cooler.  The downside is the audio quality on my camera sucks, so I’ll have to work to improve that somehow over time.

Oh yeah, last, but not least, GO MOUNTAINEERS!

I hope you like this one … definitely my most creative selection to date, and I am particularly fond of it.  🙂  And if nothing else, check out the real Symphony of Science, because it is an awesome project.
