Latest recordings of The Bicycling Guitarist

Many of my best songs have not yet been recorded at all, and those that have recordings so far only have amateur quality ones. I badly need to be recorded (as opposed to being recorded badly, which is all that's happened so far). Still, these give a taste of my composing, playing and singing. In general, the more recent recordings are higher quality.

: I post The Magick Show (song recorded ) at this cat's page Magick, the little black kitty.

: I publish a MUSIC VIDEO for the recording of my 1995 song Red Baron. It describes how the Red Baron was critically hurt in aerial combat in July of 1917 but lived to fight again, leading the Flying Circus until his death in April of 1918. Several noted aviation artists gave permission for their work to be used in this video.

UPDATE: IN 2020 (AFTER THIS VIDEO HAD BEEN ON YOUTUBE FOR EIGHT YEARS) IT WAS REMOVED WITHOUT WARNING BY YOUTUBE FOR SUPPOSEDLY VIOLATING HATE SPEECH POLICIES. THEY DID NOT OFFER OPTIONS FOR ME TO MAKE IT UNLISTED OR PRIVATE OR PUTTING AN AGE RESTRICTION ON IT. THEY JUST REMOVED IT, EVEN THOUGH THE MESSAGE OF THE SONG IS THE IMPORTANCE OF LOYALTY TO ONE'S FRIENDS AND COURAGE TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN. I UPLOADED IT TO VIMEO AND IT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD AT THE INTERNET ARCHIVE.

: I redo my 1991 R Band song about Evolution.


2004 recordings (very rough sound quality)

The sound of these recordings from is more than a bit distorted because I only had a webcam microphone to record with. I think it worthwhile nonetheless to put these songs online. My favorite of these is “One Florida Night.” The same three chord progression repeats eight times, but is different each time. Sometimes it sounds like two or even three guitars at once to me (it was just one guitar being recorded).

One Florida Night This one-minute song is in honor of Michelle Reeves, a promising 20 year old avant-garde poet and peace activist sadly no longer with us since . My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Michelle Reeves. All of us lost a friend in her, even those who never met her. I played this for the first time while recording myself on . The second half of the song has some interesting melodies going on with the higher notes.

Perseids is another song I've been playing around with a long time. This version was recorded .
