Well All Right Promo

I have been on a Buddy Holly kick as of late I guess. I dig the simplicity of the songs, but yet the raw rockin power.  I messed around with his song, "Well All Right," off the Chirpin Crickets release of 1957 I believe.  On this particular track, I played everything. I used a cardboard box for a snare and soaked it in Reverb. This video I made tells ya all about that and more. Check it out.  Hope all has been well around here.

Version One, Not Fade Away

This is version 1 of Not Fade Away. This is only The Human Playing all the instruments.  This version is close to being acceptable but a copy has been sent to AC Myles to see if he can elevate it some with some tasty lead stabs through-out the track.  The link is provided below to Human's secondary, off the grid YouTube Channel.

Buddy Holly was only 22 years old when he died in a plane crash in 1959.
Richie Valens and the Big Bopper were on board as well, but the real loss
was Buddy Holly. This is not to diminish the contributions of the others, but Buddy
was a rising star with a great future in front of him.

Not Fade Away

Was just messin in home studio the other night and this Buddy Holly song just came to me. So I took a crack at it. I drive the song with my acoustic and just build around it. But I must say the bass line I put down is bad ass.  I added a few more things in like a kick drum and conga's. I have no drum kit in little studio here.  Buddy Holly was one of my big early influences. I still have most of his albums on vinyl, purchased in the late 50's.  I still might bring in AC Myles for some lead stabs on this, but as it stands now, it's pretty good.

Click for little promo video. I will let you know when final is complete and put it up more polished without the Electric Coffee. :)

Monday Updates

What's up? This site will not let me share directly from here now, so I have to go to google + to do it.  They are closing that down soon, not sure about blogger, but it all has been a miserable failure by google. They have jacked up YouTube as well, so congratulations are in order today for Google. Job well done.  Not.

Here is link to a little video I did on updates etc. Keep Rockin My Friends.
