My life in Colombia

Welcome to the blog of Chip Wiegand

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).
