The Remix: Regular visitors to my channel will be familiar with the synth version I uploaded a while back; I decided to add a guitar to make the video a bit more interesting to watch. The guitar tone was achieved with a two amp set up; a Boss Katana Artist with a Roland Micro Cube, but unfortunately I didn't mic it. The audio from the flip camera was remixed in Audacity first, and then mixed with the synth track.

Originally, I thought I would delete the synth version, and just upload this one, but BLUES IN THE NIGHT is such a classic Harold Arlen tune, you can definitely stand to hear it twice.

This original tune was originally part of a prospective album of songs called "foreign words and ph(r)ases," of which only four songs were completed (the other three are up on my soundcloud page; see link below, and one of them, "fait accompli" can be found in video form here). The four track recording in from 1987; here I've synced up live video playing guitar, bass, and some percussion.

I've always felt a certain kinship with the Sydney Pithias character that Jerry played in the film DELICATE DELINQUENT, which is similar to the childlike misfits that Lewis specialized in many of his self-directed films like THE BELLBOY, THE ERRAND BOY, and THE PATSY. In a way, I feel like a doppelganger of that character; except in my case, I never got the girl like Jerry usually did.

This is my first video here on bitchute utilizing my brand new Boss Katana Artist amplifier, which has garnered many positive reviews for achieving a tube-like sound with a solid state operating system. I'll let you be the judge, of course, but in my 43 years of tone-searching, this is the closest I've ever come to that elusive Marshall stack tone that is so much a part of the rock music that I grew up and rocked out with in the '70s.

One of the bands that was so much a part of my youth was KISS, and when I saw them live in 1976 in Miami, FL, it was a transcendent experience. Most of my fellow concert attendees spent the entire show standing on the seats, sweating, stomping, singing and screaming -- it was awesome!

When I first discovered how good my new amp sounded, and how close I could get to Ace's tone, I decided to re-learn the entire KISS Alive! album, cover to cover, with the aid of online note-for-note tablature. When I first started playing guitar in 1977, I earned a lot of my chops from playing along with that LP, and in my very first band, we covered quite a few KISS numbers, too, so this was a labor of love, really, because naturally I got a lot of stuff wrong trying to figure it out just by ears alone. It took me four days and I had a blast.

This video was shot in my brother's garage, which he converted into a "Man-Cave" which are quite ubiquitous here in TX. On my right is my older brother Carl sporting shades, and on my left, dancing around with the gin bottle, is my younger brother Kurt.

This is one of Herbie's old Blue Note numbers that doesn't get covered much. I decided to give it a go since I'm learning how to use the expression wheel on the synth, and the melody really lends itself to a bluesy interpretation. Plus I like the title since many Americans today are asking this question regarding wearing face masks in light of the COVID-19 scam-demic. Oh well, this lockdown is working out great for me so far; I don't have to work a stupid job and can keep pumping out music videos.

Rush was never a band I was particularly fond of when I was a young punk rocker type, but now that I'm older, I've let go of a lot of my silly prejudices and decided to give them a listen. Having now spent many hours listening to their discography recently, I had to admit that Rush's sense of musicality and groove is unique and quite intriguing, as well as challenging to play properly.

So here is my first attempt to tackle one of their numbers. ANTHEM was first recorded for Rush's second LP FLY BY NIGHT, which was also the debut album for drummer Neil Peart, who had a major influence on the band's direction. I dedicate this video to my friend Rich Paddock, who got me to learn "Freewill" when I was in a band with him, and who cites Geddy Lee as a major influence.

The Kinks' masterpiece (or one of them) album, THE VILLAGE GREEN PRESERVATION SOCIETY, has been one of my favorites for nearly forth years, so it was a labor of love to cover this tune and to do the video. I hope it brings those of you out there having a tough time dealing with this so-called "pandemic" a little bit of wisdom in how to adapt.

Personally, I've been enjoying myself immensely since I don't have to work my stupid job as much, I have much more time to work out more labor intensive projects like this one. I'm going to attempt to really keep the videos flowing now, so if you hesitated subscribing, now's the time.

An after hours kind of tune; I was feelin' the blues from not getting any feminine attention lately (like in the last six years or so -- ha). Plus this is kind of a shout out to my older bro Larry who had a birthday recently; he really digs the blues.

Thanks to Bugs Bunny and his buzzard nemesis for introducing this tune to me when I was a boy.

My apologies for the interruption in video uploads; I wasn't satisfied with the quality, and decided to reassess what kind of musical projects I could best channel my energies into enthusiastically.

Basically what I figured I needed was an expansion of my musical palette, so I am putting more practice energy into keyboards, vocals, and bass. "Mean to Me" came about from being inspired by Charles Bukowski's early novels in audio format, which I have been enjoying on the job as a custodian; I had read them in the late '80s and early '90s, and could enjoy them even more now that I'm older, having been knocked about by life's storms and stresses over the past thirty years. "Mean to Me" was a favorite tune of Hank's, so this video is kind of a thank you to him for his writing.

Recently an old buddy and former bandmate Robin Toye uploaded a 5/4 percussion jam (https://tinyurl.com/s9elk5d), and he confessed to his audience that he had the Mission Impossible Theme running through his head as he was playing. Since I had made a video of this very tune last July, I thought it was musical destiny for us to jam together once again after so many years, if only virtually.

Robin's track is at 171 BPM, and mine was at 190, so I had to speed his audio up a bit to get it to match the video. I remixed a little cadenza for him at the end to emulate the original on the soundtrack recording.

Roll over Tchaikovsky! This is a Line 6 arrangement uploaded to their website some years back, so I decided to give it a go. This is a remix of a performance from two years ago today, actually. Guitar is in stereo now, and I mixed in the backing track on a discrete channel; much better fidelity.

Have a great Christmas everybody, and my sincere thanks for stopping by my bit chute page to check out some of my work. Best wishes for 2020, much more to come!

May all my visitors be free from mental and physical suffering, and be filled with loving friendliness.

This backing track is from Vol. 125 of the Aebersold jazz playalong series, "Christmas Carol Classics," and features Steve Allee on piano, Tyrone Wheeler on bass, and Jonathan Higgens on drums.

I haven't been uploading videos lately because I decided to just work on some mindfulness issues which takes up a lot of energy as I face down my demons. My last video, "Wichita Lineman," was a total flop, so I decided to step back and woodshed a bit and work on some original material.

I recorded quite a few Christmas videos in the past two years for my facebook page, and figured I might as well spread them around a bit here on bit chute for my lovely subscribers. This one is from December 2017; it was recorded before I figured out how to edit in sound with iMovie 11, so the sound quality is just average.

I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit my page and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to share some of my music with so many friends I will probably never meet.

Merry Christmas to you all, and may you be free from suffering and hardship this holiday season.

I've always loved this song, Jimmy Webb was really on a roll in the late '60s. As a matter of fact, the very first 45 RPM single I every purchased with my own money was "Up, Up, and Away" by the Fifth Dimension.

Hopefully Glen Campbell fans won't be too upset with me for sabotaging his video with my middling vocal interpretation. All in good fun, folks, enjoy the ride.

The backing track is a hybrid mix of a guitar backing track with orchestration (mostly left channel), and an iReal Pro chart I worked the changes out for (mostly right channel). The video footage of Glen Campbell was acquired from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qoymGCDYzU

This is a new ongoing video feature I am calling Musical Mischief; the idea is to blindly choose a tune from one of my many fat fake books, and to see what I can come up with utilizing as many musical toys I have laying around here, but primarily IReal Pro.

I multi-tracked several iReal Pro instruments for this arrangement; namely, jazz guitar, strings, nylon string guitar, and a piano trio, all within a Latin cha-cha rhythm context. This app continues to amaze me the more I play with it; quite a bit of potential which I hope to explore within the context of my ongoing Musical Mischief project.

A Brian May styled multiple guitar arrangement was what I was after; you can be the judge if I was successful. I've always wanted to punk this song up a bit since it is 95% major chords, and has a kind of militaristic drive to it.

I composed the iReal chart, then used two different styles melded together for a hybrid backing. Then I added a distorted rhythm guitar and three melody guitars on top of that.

My goal here was to write something danceable, and the form ended coming out a bit strange, with seventeen bars for the A section and eleven for the B section. To my ears, this gave it a spiral sounding quality, hence the title.

Thanks for watching, and if you enjoyed this video, please like, share, or subscribe. Be seeing you!

A fairly simple tune, with "Mystery Date," I decided to challenge myself and see if I could write an instrumental with an A section that only had two chords. The B section provides the tonal and rhythmic contrast, with the HR-16 sounding a bit like Animal from the Muppets Show.

My mom really liked this waltz from 1968; it was a troubled time in our country's history, and perhaps it had a calming effect for her through all the assassinations, race riots, Vietnam War, and craziness going on at the time.

Maybe she dug Englebert, too; anyway, I always remembered it because of the strange foreign language title, and because I heard that record quite a bit.

Something told me this weekend that my mom requested I cover this one, and due to syncing challenges, it was one of the more complicated recording projects I've ever done. But I learned a lot, too, so hey, it's all good. (Plus, you don't have to look at me or my bedroom again, so novelty is always an asset.)

This is a soundtrack tune that I've always wanted to cover, but did not have the tech knowledge to create a suitable backing track for. iReal Pro to the rescue once again. I love soaring melodies like this which really adapt well to slide guitar arranging.

This is an instrumental number from "The King and I" which I happened to come across in one of my fake books in 1988, and decided to mess around with. It was a transitional time for me because punk was sort of dead and I was searching around and about different genres of music for ideas to play with. It was fun to let my imagination wander off to far off lands and try to recreate the feel of an Eastern vibe with my new drum machine.

The video was originally created in rough form with two DVD players in 2008, and for this upload I improved the audio and tightened up the editing on the visuals with iMovie 11.

I recorded AFRO BLUE in 1998 when I was really at the height of my jazz studies and woodshedding quite a bit. The video was first made ten years later, and for this upload, I remixed the audio which had gotten muddy in its transfer to mp3 format, and then edited the video all over again with iMovie 11. It really is quite uncanny how well this young lady's dance moves sync up with the audio track; very little editing was required, mostly just titles and pixie dust.

This arrangement was an experiment with quartal harmony, i.e. based on fourths rather than thirds as in most of Western music. (Jimi's coda of "Castles Made of Sand" is another example of this type of harmony you might be familiar with.)

OK, judging from the lousy response to my last video, I guess you all are sick of looking at me and could use a little change. Totally understandable; my apologies. I am easily bored, too, so I can relate.

This is a tune I recorded about ten years ago and forgot about; I was going through some old DVDs and found it amongst a bunch of stripper videos I had recorded off of Something Weird discs that I had rented from Netflix. I had hastily adding new music tracks to all of them, mostly from Marvin Gaye's classic album "What's Going On".

This video was the oddball of the bunch as it was the only cut on there that had original music on it. Both audio and video needed some overhauling since it was crudely edited using two DVD machines, and the audio equalization was off, too. But here is a little treat for you all tidied up for your viewing pleasure.

Third Millennium Theme 2019 (G.H.)

I originally recorded a four track version of this tune called "Grunge Theme for the New Millennium" for my Musical Mischief giveaway cassette in 1998. This 2019 version is a revamped arrangement with iReal Pro backing track (featuring Moog bass and chorus guitar), rhythm guitar, slide guitar, and another lead guitar, plus two percussion tracks.

I was going for a majestic, fist-hoisting type of power chord anthem, so you be the judge if it works or not. Volume helps.ūüėČ

Original four track version: https://tinyurl.com/yyq5oyn9

I just discovered the iReal Pro app, and this is the first tune that I decided to cover. I've had an arrangement of this sitting around in an old music notebook forever, I guess awaiting the day when technology would make it possible for me to finally put out a version that I thought was good enough to present to the public.

I have been puzzling over how to get live sound digitally recorded so as to utilize feedback, and to have a better quality sound to bounce off of. Tonight, I finally figured out a way to do it, so I decided to cover this Ramones tune just to goof around and have fun making noise.

Here's a funny thing: when I uploaded this video to my facebook page, it was partially muted right before the first chorus because one of their copyright police 'bots 'thought' that I had uploaded the original video. I guess I got too close to the original; probably should've altered the speed or something. Oh well, bitchute comes to the rescue once again.

Former heavy rock lover, punk rocker, and KISS fanatic in my youth, wrote a lot of original material and put out a six song punk rock vinyl EP in 1987, then went to finish my college education in the early '90s (waste of money and time).

After graduating and settling back into the life of a wage slave, I decided to learn VHS video production (Thurston County TV) and worked on several projects. I started the Street Karaoke Project in the late 90s, which ended up being a money maker. In 1998, I started getting into jazz, and by a fortuitous series of circumstances, eventually eventually end up jamming and recording with trumpeter Marcus Doubleday of Electric Flag fame (some recordings of our jams are on my soundcloud page).

Then 9/11 happened and although I did put out one CD locally in Olympia, WA in 2003, mostly I just became a history-less ghost of a man wandering about in an ongoing existential funk. I became a custodian at the college I had graduated with honors from in 2006.

In the fall of 2016, after relocating to TX in 2013, I started messing around with video editing again, as as digital audio recording, and eventually, after a year of struggle, learned enough rudimentary skills to start producing the content you see on this page.

Now I am past the age of 60 and trying to get as much material up as I can before this meat suit of mine calls it quits.
