Welcome to my blog and website, I hope you find your visit interesting.

Life is very, very simple and easy to understand, but we complicate it with the beliefs and ideas that we create.

My Music


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.

Dirty River
Full Moon
Lazy Days
One Quiet Evening
Unknown Etude

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.

Chatroom Girl
Do You Believe In Destiny
Forever Yours
I Love Everything About You
I Will Be Thinking About You
It's Everything - The lyric is written by my friend Mike St. John.
Love Of My Life
Music Of The Heart
Once Upon A Time
That's Where Your Happiness Is
Together, Forever
When I Think About Angels
Why Did You Leave - I wrote this song in the first few months after Cheryl's death.
World Of Love
Your Smile

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).
