This was the original idea behind "The Head's the Best Part", recorded by the band, fred, in 1973 and published on the album, Notes on a Picnic. The lead guitar voice is from the Eastman John Pisano.
An update to a song previously recorded with Good Without One, featuring Noble strat, Taylor CE110, fretless Fender pbass, and Hydrogen drums. I recently realized that I previously hadn't recorded on my own, so here it is with updated lyric.
Peak position #17
This version updates a song originally recorded by "fred" way back in 1971 and released in 2002 by World in Sound.
Another jaunty little instrumental piece for the Levin Deluxe.
Cleetus Awreetus Awrightus as a "dancin' fool."
Peak position #20
A recasting, in a jazz/swing mode, of Bombastic Blather of Budget Hawks.
Peak position #4
A blues boogie for Fearless Leader, kind of a sythesis of Howlin' Wolf and Calvin Trillin
Peak position #11
for our fearless leader
A departure from my most recent efforts. A song very much influenced by Yes, intended for the band, fred, but never performed, dating back to the early 1970's
Peak position #53
a re-recording of the 2011 version, this time using a vintage 1943 Levin Deluxe (with add-on magnetic pickup) on lead and rhythm, accompanied by fretless Fender P-bass and Hydrogen drum software.
Peak position #28
a vehicle for a chordal melody, with modal improvisation
Peak position #21
An all new rendering of Mango Chutney, using the 1943 Levin Deluxe and adding percussion (Hydrogen drum software) and synth tracks, and a solo on the fretless Fender P bass.
A reminiscence from around 1968. Tracking includes Gurian JR acoustic guitar, Fender fretless P-bass, Hydrogen drum software, and my main squeeze TP Noble strat with effects from PreSonus Studio 1.
Not to be confused with "Yes, We Have No Bananas", a version of which I used to fingerpick. This one is a bouncy instrumental in an altered blues format (where and when is that V chord?)
An acoustic, thematically related companion of Hero, recorded here with two tracks, one lead and one flat-picked rhythm from my Gurian JR.
