Backstage at the. Fashion Show (guitar instrumental) PDG – YouTube

Here is my video of song #1974 written 8/10/18.

This is a rough demo, so to enhance the sound – with finger picking – I recorded one version, and played live a 2nd time on video.

Music! Songs! Music!

July 19, 2018

Music Music Music! Songs Songs Songs!

From January 6th 2017 to July 2, 2018 I have written the music to 225 songs!

That is more than 12 a month for 18 months. Brings my total to over 1,950 songs. The 225 songs are from Song #1730 – #1955.

For comparison, the Beatles wrote about 190 songs total in their career. I did more than that in 18 months, and ten times that in total so far. But are they anywhere as good? Play them and see for yourself!

I had planned to record many of these, but I’m not going to go into a recording studio until the music stops flowing!

So instead I’ve done some, NOT studio recordings, but rough minute demos of some of these 225 songs.

Please go to my youtube channel, listen to any that interest you, and give them a thumbs up (literally just lifting a finger.) Search TomHendricksMusea or video floor at the big website.

For 150 studio recordings go to the music ‘floor’ on my website tomhendricks.us or see wikipedia.

Road – Video

Dear Reader,

Here’s a new video ROAD (chorus). By Hunkasaurus and HIs Pet Dog Guitar.
This is a demo not studio recording of my song #1913 written April 12.. For studio songs see my 9 CDs.

This song is all GO! – Just a chorus and a chord!
Great song for when you are on the road and have no where you have to be.

I kept it simple to keep the song on the move. Take a listen and let me know what you think. I’ve been in a songwriting spree and I haven’t had time to go to the studio. So for now this will have to do!

HEADPHONES ARE BEST – also see my youtube channel for many more rough demos of recent songs. or tomhendricks.us for the studio work.

Cello (new song, lyrics, and video)

May 2, 2018

Here is a preview of a new song of mine, called Cello.
The lyrics tell of a man who hears a woman playing cello through the apartment walls and falls in love with her.

The youtube video, with a rough demo of the song will be out soon. Till then here is the lyrics.

CELLO (c) Tom Hendricks 2018

1.

I was caught off guard, reading some books one day

When I heard next door, someone began to play.

Cello practice there. She played some scales to start.

Then after a pause, she played a piece by Bach.

Chorus

First she played it sweet like a Siren sings

Then she played it rough like a stormy see

Passion in her bow as her cello rang.

Passion in my heart, not too far away.

(guitar lead, then repeat chorus )

2.

Music shows the soul. Its more than skill or rote.

When she strums the strings, feelings in every note.

(I) listen when I can, don’t want to miss her play.

(I) really have to find some way to meet some day.

Chorus (repeat).

Top of Their Field and Favorites

April 8, 2018

Dear Reader,

Through my 25 years, and 200 issues of the arts and media zine Musea (1992-now), I’ve met many excellent musicians, painters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.

David McGhee – photography

Sara Niemietz and Snuffy Walden – music

Michael Helsem – writing

Scott Jacob Loehr – music

Ace Backwards – blogging.

Sparrow – poetry.

David Darling – science website, writing.
