Well, no one asked for this, but lord knows I have never let that stop me: I am posting here 3 MP3s of me playin’ guitar. They’re more or less songs, I guess, written by me. In the sense that they are not, as far as I know, songs you would recognize as anyone else’s, though I am sure I have stolen all the riffs and arrangements from someone else without realizing it. Please do not identify where I stole everything from, damn you.




Anyway, here’s how I made these snogs, in case you’re interested:

  1. An Ibanez ArtCore AF75 hollow-body electric guitar, plugged into
  2. A Fender Frontman Reverb Amp, used as a pre-amp, plugged into
  3. A Kubuntu PC.
  4. Using Hammerhead Rhythm Station (run via Wine) for drums
  5. Recorded and mixed using Audacity.

DISCLAIMER: Babe, I know these aren’t great music. I know the mixing is terrible and there’s distortion. I know I hit some sour notes and my grasp of Key is, um, fragile. These are posted for fun, and because I’ve been taking guitar lessons for a while now and I like to make things.

That said, these are Copyright (C) 2008, me, bubba. Steal them and I will ineffectually insult you over the Internets.

    hey Rock god, Song 35 is missing a dot in the url.
    I’ll tell you which one if you send me a crisp twentydollar bill.

    Rock on.

    It’s like Sebadoh in a car cash with Sonic Youth.

    JR: Thanks. Fixed. I blame you, naturally.

    D: SEBADOH! OMG, I haven’t heard mention of Sebadoh in years.

    I’m going to take that as a compliment and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    It is only right and just to blame your fans for url errors. You are the rock god. It defies reason you would err. To err being…yanno…human and all.

    Glad you understand! I won’t hold it against you.
