The venerable Nick La Salle and I have been writing and playing music together for some nine or ten years. The collaboration has pushed us and elevated both of us musically to ever-greater heights, not just in terms of our playing abilities, but in the complexity of our songs as well. Our music production today relies a lot on the internet, since we live a substantial distance from one another. Gotta love the internet.
Most of our material together isn't ready for public consumption. But as we finish songs, they'll be posted. To download, click the link(s) below.
Stay is a bluesy ballad. In its initial draft, I unwisely laid down the
foundation track on guitar and vocal without the aide of a metronome, which resulted in
tempo fluctuations . That's now been corrected. I've also added a bridge and a new guitar
part. This is just three guitar parts (Gibson acoustic and a Les Paul) and my vox into a Røde NT1000 mic. The Les Paul was DI'd,
and sounds like it. I haven't placed any bass guitar on this since I'm not certain it
needs it. Barring a change of heart about that, and maybe the inclusion of some bongos,
the only thing left is Mr. La Salle's backing vocals. And further mixing.
