August 09, 2022 User Showcase Song - New World

"He went out for a pack of cigarettes, and never came back"

New World

I remember someone saying that, way back in my youth.
It sounded bizarre...

Once again I used Brent's Dreamy Soloist. The most versatile soloist (but then again all Brent Mason RTs are top-notch).

Comments encouraged!

August 03, 2022 User Showcase Song - Handyman (feat. Peter on guitar)

A little happy ditty.


Janice sings and plays the percussion (no drums on the tune - all her on cajon and shaker). Bud played acoustic bass and our music partner Peter played all the guitars (acoustic, electric and slide).

The shaker is a gourd that Bud’s mother used to darn (repair) socks on years ago.

Comments are welcomed and thanks to Peter and PG Music.
