Here’s an oldie I recorded in 1994… A mushy, happy, feel-good tune. Yay. And above, you can laugh at a picture of me when I was 16, holding my Westone Raider II. Enjoy.
This is an instrumental I wrote and recorded in 1993 with a crappy Carlos acoustic guitar using a Dean Markley Pro-Mag pickup. It’s a bit of a jazz sound and is probably the first song I ever did with finger picking. It was one take, so there are a few biffs here and there.
An instrumental I wrote in 1991 when I first got my Zoom 9002 guitar effects processor and Yamaha MT-100 MKII 4-track cassette recorder. I was determined to try just about every effect the Zoom had in one song. That was my little kitteh “Alesis” in the photo above. 🙂

This one is hard to explain… 1991. I found my roommate’s carton of orange juice in the refrigerator had become a science experiment. It was turning green and growing all sorts of fuzzy things inside. So I wrote a song.
Another oldie from 1991. I was working at a local alternative music radio station at the time (KWOD 106.5) and listening to music that was different from the metal I grew up on inspired me to try something progressive. Isn’t that picture of me scary? 😉
I recorded this on my Yamaha MKII 4 track cassette, the keyboards in the song were actually done with the crappiest little Casio keyboard I could find (I borrowed it from my bro Spanky Burns), and I was using an Alesis SR-16 drum machine that I bought from Sean Rowley (RIP) of local group Cause and Effect, who I had the pleasure of meeting while working at KWOD.
