The LOST TAPES (music)

November 13, 2015

THE LOST TAPES

These 27 Lost Tapes, most by me, some by talented friends, are called that because they have never been officially released on the net.

They include a couple full band, early singles from me, some great music from talented musician friends, and some of my keyboard compositions, with some of those in the classical style, some in the jazz style.

For those who missed them, here they are again.

THE LOST TAPES:

The letter following the title tells you how good the technical recording is – from A – F. A = studio recording. C or lower = home recording.

These four were my first attempts at the combo style of guitar playing or Voice and Guitar style, the style I’m recorded my 150 song set. There are three Elvis standards plus the cartoon TV theme song. All four were later rerecorded for the big music project. See youtube for all 4 by searching “CD Baby + Hunkasaurus + song-title”

1. Treat Me Nice – A. Some rockabilly.

2. That’s All Right Mama – A. More rockabilly

3. Heartbreak Hotel – A.

4 Bugs Bunny Theme – A.
Next come some full band songs from the past:

5. Dallas – A. Tribute to my home. “This town lies in the future!”

6. Stories – A. 2 verse/stories with this moral “Heaven help the man who refuses to change”

These two are both beautiful slow songs by very talented friends from my 12 By 12 recordings:

7. Love Is Forever. – A. Alayna Mosteller sings while the composer, Scott Jacob Loehr plays the piano accompaniment

8. Angel – A. Anthony Baugh sings one of his own songs.
Next come these keyboard pieces. These are what I call ‘bagatelles. They are each a very short keyboard composition usually with a major theme, a minor break, and a repeat of the major theme. All are poor, C-F for technical sound quality.

9. Bullfrog -single melody line for a looooow horn.

10. Circus – circus type music with a kinda calliope sound

11. Fractured Beethoven – my fractured version of Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy” from his ninth symphony. Purists cover your ears!

12. Leaves – harpsichord music – you are back in the 18th century.

13. Skating – a waltz. You can almost see the gliding of skaters in the carefree music.

14. Sparrow – synthesizer lite

15. Sprite – eerie and ghostly waltz for things that go bump in the night

16. Strings – sounds like a grand orchestra of violins

17. The Happy Flea – a whistling song

18. Subatomic Particles – hear them electrons buzzing?

19. Walk in the Field – I don’t remember a thing about this one. But I think it was melodic.
Here are some home recordings, and they sound it (tech quality C-F) of voice and/or guitar.

20. I’ll Sing For You – slow love song.

21. Spanish Melody – a composition of mine in the classical guitar vein. (Also see studio version online.

22. History of Rock and Roll – beat poetry with ‘crazy’ guitar – you dig!

23. Tommy’s Got A Song in His Guitar – little bit of autobio about songwriting. (Also see studio version online.
Some more synthesizer music. These are loosely jazz improvisations. Again all have low technical quality, C-F.

24 Soul Searching – jazz exploring.

25 The Happy Flea part 2 – happy jazz.

26 Watching Her Walk From Behind – sexy jazz.

27. The Signal – bells ring and exotic rhythms beckon.

Juggernaut (a one guitar symphony)

December 27, 2013

Readers,  here is a  3 minute guitar symphony in 6 parts – all on one guitar!

————————

A/A/B/B/C/A

A = The opening two parts, has a Jimi Hendrix feel to the chords.

B = Things quiet down in this center section with a sitar feel like the Beatles to the melody and chords.

C = The music builds up stronger and stronger in a chord progression that sounds like the Who.

A = The music comes round to the Juggernaut first part.

See what you think of my one guitar symphony.

Background:

WHAT IS THE ART AND MEDIA REVOLUTION?
Start with Post-Bands music. I am the first, AFAIK, to openly oppose what rock and popular music have become. So these CD’s are the first for a new type of music. NEW CENTURY, NEW MUSIC! I suggest a new, back to basics music that is a more honest and simple music. My version is voice and guitar, with emphasis on good songs (covers and originals – best from new and old), great melodies, solid lyrics, and honest straightforward singing. See what you think. Dance if you want to!
BUT THERE IS MORE:
Feel free to ask me about any of these other topics besides my 6 CDs : 1. My 20 year old monthly art and media zine, MUSEA , 2. The WORLD’S FIRST TOP FORTY LIST – the best 200 songs on the net, from every continent on the planet (and what a talented bunch of musicians this group is), 3. BOX OFFICE CONCERTS at the Inwood Theater, Dallas, Texas; 4. WORLD REQUEST AND DEDICATION for all; 5. Conceptual art that challenges conceptual art and all modern art; 6. The ZINE HALL OF FAME, 7. My 60 VIDEOS including the 6 part lecture series, FIVE DOORS TO THE ART REVOLUTION; any of my writings, or anything else.

FIVE MUSICAL FIRSTS   from Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar (the voice and guitar with the funny name).

——————————- 1 ————————–

LEADING A MUSIC REVOLUTION – against what rock rap country pop have become with POSTISM, (POSTMOD or WOW music). First to rebel against rock.
Leading the way is important. Time for music to have a real alternative.(Click on my blog music category for more or this link:

PLAYED MUSIC CONCERTS IN A THEATER BOX OFFICE? (1996-2014)
Being creative in where you play music is part of the fun. Doing world’s first in music, count. Tom Hendricks (Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar) PS: I will also gladly take requests. You choose a song I do, or tell me the message you want, and I will find a song to fit, then perform it in concert and dedicate it to anyone anywhere. From anyone anywhere, to anyone anywhere.
——————————- 3 ————————–
Has made the first BIG LIST OF THE BEST MUSIC ON THE NET.
BIG MUSIC LIST (200 Song – First Worldwide Best Music List) http://wp.me/p5S9X-36
Making the first, BEST OF THE NET music list, breaks new ground for the internet – and its very exciting. History is now!
Here’s WOW music (world open wide) at it’s best:
*WOW, world open wide or, Postism Music, or  Post-Bands Music- its 3 things, a revolution against what rock/rap/country/pop have become, its back to early rock and roll’s simple honesty, directness, and passion with an emphasis on melody and great SONGS, and it’s a music that includes all types of music from every place in the world.
——————————- 4 ————————–
Started a new STYLE OF PLAYING THE GUITAR.
I call it “a guitar is as good as a band’ style, or ‘combo’ style; where I play bass rhythm and lead all at once on one guitar.
Trying new innovations in music brings excitement back to music. Be sure to support those of us that are NOT trying to sound like everyone else.
——————————- 5 ————————–
Finished a 9 CD, outside the box, set of 150 songs for voice and guitar. (2004-2014)
I’m trying to show all the types of music you can play and perform with one guitar. I call it my, H and PDG’s OUTSIDE THE BOX – SET.
Trying new innovations in music brings excitement back to music. Rebellion brings vitality. Be sure to support those of us that are NOT trying to sound like everyone else and repeat what everyone else is dong. (See all main music sites)
