The Band of Chaperones has launched their premiere single on Bandcamp. I have been fine tuning this track for several weeks. The piece is entitled "Bruddah, Sistah, Biscuit, and Joe", written by Lisa Oskardmay. You can hear it exclusively on our Bandcamp site. Get CLICKIN!

Moving forward toward the end of the year, I am taking stock of 2022 and evaluating our next steps. There may be some turbulence.

A couple of weeks ago I launched the first video from Project Next. It was shot in "glorious 480P", not even as good as the iPhone is capable of (I found out on further poking around). Apparently the phones these days can shoot in 4k! Insane. Anyway, this video was the scariest video ever uploaded to YouTube on Halloween. At least this Halloween. Well, that we know of.

For best results, heavy bass. In the dark. Down by the river. The industrial lot. After the rains.

More work on the first single from Band of Chaperones. There is a decent draft on the Bandcamp site, but not quite final. Sounding good!

Thanksgiving next week in the US. I don't think I will be around for blogging, so have a safe and happy holiday!

I am experiencing arthritic pain and swelling of the left hand. Ring finger especially. This has caused me to stop practicing normally for several days, though I did record some tracks this evening, breaking a series of non-left-hand practice days. I moved into a few days of right-hand focused guitar practice after skipping a few days entirely (which freaks me out tbh), cross picking, and basic speed drills, although in my case these are “speed” drills. This is what RF would call taking advantage of a seeming disadvantage. The greater the apparent disadvantage, i.e. not being able to use my left hand, the greater the potential advantage. In my case, it is a great exercise to focus on the right hand, so as long as there is eventual healing, I am OK with focusing on other areas, for now. The fact is that I am in some pain while playing–not where I need to be. But enough of my whining.

Press Record! There is a new track nearly tracked and on its way into production. The Band of Chaperones (Lisa and David Oskardmay) has been working on their debut single! The studio elves are hard at work. I need to refine the guitar solo. Don’t we all?

I have been revisiting the Stranger Than Fiction Album. There are currently two mixes of “After Hours” on Bandcamp, and the old one, the “Virgin Mix”, is ready to go away, as the new mix is definitely a big improvement. If you want to compare the two mixes, hurry now before I delete the first mix.

Hey, thanks for stopping by. It makes it worth writing.
