Thunder

Thunder

I composed Thunder as a backing track for guitarists. I get a ton of emails asking for backing tracks. Not all guitarists are composers and even less know how to mix a track, so I decided to send out a simple backing track and see how folks like it. So far the response is very good. I entered this track in an online contest (Tunecore) and won 2nd prize for ‘Best Guitar Bed’. Pretty cool.

 

Why did I name the track ‘Thunder’? I let my son Conner listen to the track and come up with a name. Conner said that the song reminded him of a thunder storm, so there ya have it. I love blue and this image is pretty cool. If you want a copy of the MP3, just shoot me an email. I’ll be happy to send you a copy.


New Album (iTunes, Google Play & Amazon)

My new album is posted in all 3 major digital music stores; iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music. In addition, my new album is listed in over 200 other digital music stores. Availability varies from country to country. The price is the same on all 3 stores ($7.99). The prices varies a lot with the other stores. Mostly due to currency conversion. If you live in the US, stick to the major 3 digital music providers.

I didn’t advertise on Tunecore, but 50% of each LP sale goes to the “Love Without Boundaries Foundation“. Love Without Boundaries Foundation began in 2003 after a group of adoptive parents came together to help save the life of one tiny boy in China. Learn more about how LWB is touching the lives of thousands of children… one life at a time! Yes, I’m a sucker for kids, but that’s not a bad thing. Love Without Boundaries can feed one child for about $5 a month! I have no idea how they do that, but I’m happy to support such a wonderful group of people.

As of this posting my album has sold over 200 copies in less than 48 hours! I have amazing fans, thank you!

Thanks so much for all the support and kind emails. Here are the links:

As always, if you need a different version or format, just shoot me an email. I have high resolution versions of all my songs (320 bit MP3). I can also provide a creative license if you want to use a song in a media project. Just send a link back to my site.

Thanks again!

For the record, I didn’t name this one, lol… A good friend needed an up tempo guitar back track for a project. I’m always looking for something new to create, so I composed this track. This one fit the bill. PineRidge studios helped with the final mix down.

This was one of my first experiments with dropped tuning and a few other things. I love the heavy vibe and rich harmony parts. Even after all these years, I love the mix and this is one of my favorite personal songs. I have no idea why, but I never get tired of this one.

MoonSugar & Skooma

Moon Sugar & Skooma

Yeah, too much time spent playing Morrowind, then Oblivion, etc… This song was obviously influenced by those games, lol… Cool track though. If you’ve never played Morrowind or Oblivion (first, shame on you!); Moon Sugar is a narcotic and Skooma is kinda like moon shine. That’s why the song sounds like an acid trip, haha.

I wrote this song for a local snow boarding video back in 2007. Turned out pretty cool. Some of my cleanest guitar work from back in the day. The mix is a little “bright/harsh”. I was using an older version of Ozone for the mix down. I had no idea how to use the software, lol… and it shows. Oh well, live and learn right? 

Lucky for me I gave the project manager my raw audio tracks. I’m sure his mix-down sounds much better than mine.
