On Top of a Hill – live looping improv / demo

March 10, 2014    
State Shirt    

Here’s a song that I’d consider, using music industry vernacular, a “demo”. I wanted to start out with a completely ridiculous sound and try to turn it into a song. This is the result. Maybe this will turn into an album track, I’m not sure yet. Hope you enjoy checking out this work in progress. 🙂 buy steal Gear list if you’re interested: Circular Labs Mobius looping software on my Macbook Pro….    read more

I recently had the opportunity to contribute an article for Premier Guitar magazine. The topic? Something very dear to my heart—looping tips and techniques! “If you want to take your looping from four-bar bedroom jams to a performance environment, start thinking of your looper as an instrument, not an effect. Creating engaging loop performances can require the same type of effort that you put into learning guitar. Really get to know your…    read more

Life had gotten a little crappy there for a bit. Really didn’t record any music in the last 8 months. Finally moved into a new place and have the studio set up again.

I’ve really been a live looping mode for the last few weeks. This was recorded last night—it started off as an improvised vocal part that morphed into a song.
