Cover version of a Synthwave tune I like, Video made with Nikon Coolpix camera, I had to re-record the audio into Cakewalk after trying(and failing) to record audio into a Tascam DR-05(the audio went in too loud). A couple of sounds are missing from this cover, Maybe with experience I can lean to pack more into the sequencer, but as it is, I have 3 drum parts, 4 melody parts and a sample I pitched manually the way Gabe Miller showed how in one of his tutorials. Thanks to Gabe for answering a couple on my newbie comment questions and to folks on other forums who also offered advice. Used the Delorean Dream Circuit Tracks pack.

Hooked up my Volca Bass, fading it in as I fade out Synth 1, applying reverb & delay, then changing keys before returning to Synth 1 for the finale. Cameo from Zorro the Cat, and he dosen't even charge union scale!

Tried to follow Gabe Miller's beginner tutorial, got pretty close if I do say so. This is the first time I've really worked with since it arrived two days ago.

Here's a new version of a song of mine from a few years ago. Here are the lyrics:

If you, my friend, are worried
in the same way that I am
From seein' Captain Ahab
Where once stood Uncle Sam
on meaningless vendettas
waged on made-up enemies
and includin' our neighbors in with these

I think a healthy disregard is well-advised
when grown-ups abdecate and children supervise
and brush our freedoms with the brush suspicion tarred
I hope I see some healthy disregard

Oh, don't you wonder why
we're led to think authority's
invested in some scary "them"
and not the common "we"?
and you who hold a shield
ain't it time you looked inside
and see the face your helmets hide?

You might think a healthy disregard is well-advised
can't we be countrymen instead of warring sides?
who treat our neighborhoods like Folsom Prison yard
I hope I see some healthy disregard

So, when they mention things
that if we see, we'd better say
so folks who make us nervous
can be neatly dragged away
remember what our Grandma's
generation would've thought
and all the injustices they fought

They had a healthy disregard for stupid rules
and not much indulgence for legalistic fools
so when some punk decides to play some fascist card
I hope I see some healthy disregard

Yeah, I hope I see some healthy disregard!

Instant composition using the Korg Volca Beats, Korg Volca Bass and Alto VMX122 mixer w/FX. The delay on the Volca Bass is from the mixer.

This one is like Andrea's Birthday Song, an old guitar piece done in an alternate tuning I don't remember. Hope you enjoy.

Recorded 12-15 years ago, using an alternate guitar tuning I don't remember how to do anymore. Good luck trying to figure it out.

Riff - E - F - A - B - D - E(3x), E - F - A - D - G(1x),
Riff - Bb power chord - Db power chord - Riff

Just how to play the main riff to this Bryan Adams song.

Classic 808 beats recreated, from Marvin Gaye, Afrika Bambaata, Cybotron, A Guy Called Gerald, Beastie Boys, Phil Collins, and Adonis

Here's me after copying several classic TR-909 beats from songs by Inner City, Daft Punk, Jeff Mills, Madonna, Laurent Garnier, Faithless, Orbital and Gorillaz. The Clap sound, the Open Hat and Cymbal sounds I found way higher in pitch than on the 909, too much for exact copies.

Debuting my Donner Revecho, effecting the Volca Bass. No FX on the Drumbrute except it's own distortion.

Some variations on a bassline I learned how to make from watching a YouTube video.

Just hooked them up, playing a preset pattern on each.

The legendary sound of the Roland TB-303, recreated are Behringer.

Brought it home today, here's the first look!

Sorry about the horrible intonation on this guitar, if you can get past that this will get you playing the intro to Mexico!
D - A - D - Bm - A - Em - Bm - C - G

This is only a short bit of the craziness that happened around the corner from my house last night after dark. This screaming and yelling went on for another half hour, and long after cops arrived. I still don't know what the hell it was about.

Covering a popular song.

Here's a COVID-19 song, written while in home quarantine, now unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. Uses the Ali Farke tuning w/capos shown in an earlier video viewable on this channel

A COVID-19 song, written while in home quarantine, now inleashed upon an unsuspecting world. Uses the Ali Farke tunning w/ capo shown on an earlier video viewable on this channel.

My "secret" tuning and the customized capo it uses. The capo, when applied, holds down the MIDDLE FOUR strings, the outer two strings are not capo-ed. Tuning the low E string down to D is not required. The perfidious_ba song Call To Panic uses this tuning. Also, my tune Ali From Mali uses it, you can hear that one here: https://soundcloud.com/moe_shinola/ali-from-mali

Harp preset for my new MS-01 synth, candidate for use with an original song with the Time Travelers band.
