Thursday night, bought a new (old) guitar. A Martin EMP-1. It was number 63 of 262 made.
I looked up Psalm 63 and was inspired . . .

Worked the chord sheet out - got the backing tracks down and then singer just happened to be in town and came by . . . we laid some scratch vocals Friday afternoon to see if song worked like I saw it in my head and on guitar . . .


the style is _RCKWLZD.sty Rock Waltz 2/Dirty Elect Gui

the lead is acoustic guitar from leads - can't remember which one . . . I re-amped it and used it for lead...

the beginning is my new martin DI . . . since scratch I didn't worry about using mic . . .

This is the song:

https://soundcloud.com/user-812843012/psalm-63-your-grace-is-better-than-life

Psalm 63 (You grace is better than life)

I think your recent posts and the work you are producing is very inspirational and fresh. I thought it to be unique that a used martin was your inspiration for the song.

+1 to that. Interesting history on those type guitars... did you know someone who worked for Martin? or was this just "found somewhere"?

Thanks Floyd!

Here is the story . . . (I'll try to keep it short)

I'm a drummer . . . I managed and produced a band I put together in the 80's and got us signed to major label.

That lifestyle can get real ugly and I got out of music . . . (long story - fast forward a decade +) . . .

got talked into playing for church when a persistent worship pastor said: you have played for the other side, have you ever thought about serving God with your talent?

Made me think . . .

I ended up starting a successful Worship Music Open Mic . . . a place where worship leaders could kind of let their hair down and sing and worship different than they do on Saturday or Sunday . . .

After a year, that became more about promotion and less about worship so I left that . . .

I had been writing songs for a couple of years so I bought a Fretlight guitar from Sweetwater . . .

LOVED the concept of a lighted fret board to learn different phrasings etc . . .

First one got here and 5 fret were DEAD! I had never bought a guitar on-line . . . Sweetwater was good to their name and took it back and sent a new one . . .

Frets dead on it too . . . truss rod adjustments are different in these guitars and if over done will separate the fretboard from the neck . . .

Called sweetwater and they sent me to local repair shop and said they would pay . . . I love Sweetwater!

Long story short, I gave Sweetwater their assessment and they had me send it back and refunded my money . . . no problems! Class company to deal with - I buy most of my stuff there.

I went to local guitar store to try out "better" guitars . . .

Breedloves were hard to play . . . required too much effort . .

I loved the necks of the Martins and how fast they were . . .I tried a couple but they were real dark . . . top end seemed to be lacking

I tried some Taylors . . . they had the top end but lacked the bottom end of the Martins . . .

Tried an Alex Lifeson PRS private stock and almost had a heart attack at the price . . . loved the thin body though!

Decided, maybe in my price range I would not get what I was looking for so I decided to go used . . .


I started looking on ebay and craigslist . . .

I saw an add for the EMP-1 on craigslist. Never heard of it so I looked up the history . . . and the body was THIN!

I called the guy who happened to be a worship pastor for his church . . .

Met with him and bought guitar . . .

that is short story crazy

Very cool song!! I love the clean Queen-style harmonies followed by the distorted rock sound. Guitar solo is perfect for the song. Very creative and interesting music! Take care. Greg

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
