This is my first song for the RPM Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar (all of you?) the RPM Challenge is a challenge to write and record an album of at least 10 songs or 35 minutes within in the month of February. Continue reading Original: Golly
One of my favorites by the one and only John Hartford.
This tune started as a groove on my loop pedal. It eventually evolved into a song with bogus lyrics and wacky vocals. Cheers!
After a busy few months, I’ve finally gotten to the point where my calendar is looking pretty free and clear for a nice stretch. This means that I’m finally going to start working on an album under the moniker “Gnarsh.”
When I told my mom about this, she said two things: “I hope that it’s good” and “I hope the songs aren’t sad.” I can’t really do much about it being good, but I really do want a theme of fun and happiness on the album – that was my plan all along.

“Gliders” is a short instrumental that I recorded last night. I have a looper pedal, and that’s where I originally made this loop. Last night I added bass and some keys to the original 3-layered guitar, as well as a drum machine through Garage Band.
Thanks for listening. Cheers.
This tune’s been hanging around unfinished for a good year or so. I had the day off work yesterday so decided to get some recording done, so here it is.
