I wrote a new song today.

Band practice practice

Getting some Rochester songs ready for Emma tomorrow. Pedals are Zoom G5 on 23.2 (MATCH30), Subnup octaver with everything on full, except sub2, on 5. Boss Acoustic simulator AC-2 on Jumbo, Level full, body and top on 5. Loop station RC-1, with its terrible double-tap stop function that means you can’t stop the loop without losing your playing rhythm. Digitech drop pedal for bass. TC-electronics Spark pedal on full. Guitar on back pick all tones full.

tonights band practice

Emma and I practiced tonight. No loop or drop pedal. All songs off my second album. I’ve been writing new songs recently. 4 soundcloud demos for my next album, overall, fellow pianist, men like to reign and dilated lines. These off ‘August‘ seem old:

We have no gigs booked.

I was born in a mine

I was born in a mine.
He was a friend of mine.

Now, yellow flower shackles me.
Now she likes him.
How it delights him.
How it delights him now.

Who am I to you?
Would I lie to you?
Does that travel lady?
Does that bullet travel bladed?

Naked hand

I wanna write a song in the manner of the wrong guitar.
Rabid in the sand with a naked hand.

Hand.
