My Style of Music , a letter to a music friend.

My Style of Music
Let me add this thought. I did traditional rock recordings in the eighties; guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, but then evolved to a simpler style, back to basics that I really like. So, should I studio record this or any of my songs, it would not be a retro band attempt from the style of 60 years ago, but a new more simple arrangement, in the new style that most don’t seem to like much, or at best are bewildered that it doesn’t sound like it “should”, in the old style.
At most any studio recording of mine now would involve a lead singer, 2 background singers and one or two standard guitars, and the comments would still be: I want to hear the old style, don’t you? No, not anymore. There were the Beatles and 60 years of imitators in my opinion. We don’t need me to be another. Yes many here are doing original and fine work in this style, and it suits them. Your work is a fine example, but it is not for me anymore.

Two New Music Videos, Basket Girl, and From Me To You

February 19, 2019

Dear Readers,

Please see my youtube channel page for two new videos.
Basket Girl, is an original with Red Riding Hood overtones.
From Me To You, is the Beatle classic.

For both, I recorded the guitar separately, then sang live, to get a better mix. You will not be surprised to find there is no auto tuned vocals!
