My life in Colombia
Welcome to the blog of Chip Wiegand
The instrumental songs below are some I came up with one day while experimenting with a new 8 track digital recorder I borrowed from a friend. The first 4 songs are adlibs, songs I made up as I went along. I started with a simple chord progression on the guitar, then added other parts one at a time. I probably spent less than a half-hour on each one of them.
The fourth song is only about 45 seconds or so, I don't konw what happened to it, I recorded the entire song (and the acoustic guitar was a bit out of tune, sigh, oh well).
The last song is called Unknown Etude becuase I don't know who wrote it. I found the original melody and chord progression in a music theory book many years ago, and the melody was uncredited.
The songs from here down I wrote in 2010 and 2011, some of the lyrics were given to me, some I wrote. The lyrics that were given to me - I don't know if they are originals or plagiarized.
I am playing: bass guitar, electric guitar, accoustic guitar, tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet, keyboard.
The drums are provided by the drum machine on the 8 track recorder (in the instrumental songs) or from a separate drum machine (on all the other songs).
