Recorded at Big Blue Sound in Fort Dodge, Iowa using ProTools software. I kept coming back to the blues on these songs. "Groove tracks" created with Zoom drum machine, guitars, and various digital instruments from Yamaha keyboard. Special thanks to Fender and Peavey for electric guitar sounds, Martin for steel string acoustic sounds, and Yamaha for nylon string sounds. Most of these tracks are somewhat sparse, so if you are a musician, please feel free to play along and add your own parts. If it turns out cool, send me a copy. If you are a poet vocalist feel free to try adding lyrics to these tracks....that would make me happy too. Enjoy.
