  • Melon Fields About Town Original instrumental composition recorded January 2017. Instruments: Fender CD-60 acoustic guitar; Casio CTK-2200 keyboard for strings, harp, wood stick and triangle sounds. Recorded with n-Tracks software onto Compaq PC, Reverb and some echo added to the individual tracks. Basic A, E, and D chords with a few variations and some lead improvising using the major pentatonic scale. It's a actually a warm-up exercise I often do and I decided to record it and give it a name.

  • Squire Original instrumental composition co-written by myself (bass) and Norman Robinson (guitar), with Al Kloper (drums). Recorded in Al's basement on a mono cassette recorder back in our college days. The bass was dubbed over a second time a few years later. We had a nickname for each original tune we wrote, and this one had the nickname "Chris Squire" because of the way the bass leads the melody in the chorus and uses syncopated notes the way Chris Squire loved to do, as founding member of the group "Yes". In Chris' honor, who sadly passed away last June, I have named the song "Squire".

  • Try (cover version) My rendition of "Try" by Colbie Caillat, recorded at home May-June 2015. Recorded on Compaq PC using n-Track Studio 7 software. Instruments: Samick acoustic guitar; Yamaha classical acoustic guitar. In addition three free Android apps available on Google Play: "Real Piano"; "Violin"; and "Congas & Bongos" where the chime sound came from. Lead vocals, back-up vocals and hand claps recorded with a plain Labtec web microphone, as were the guitars. "Spin-It-Again" software used for light noise reduction and to convert the recording to mp3 format. There is still a slight hissing sound due to the low quality of the sound card in my Compaq PC.
