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 I have a looper pedal, and that’s where I originally made this loop.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.
I have over 100 unfinished or nearly finished original songs on my hard drive. Well… calling them songs might be a bit of a stretch. Let’s call them sketches. Some have lyrics. Some have a kind of hum-gibberish just to map out the melody. Some are ideas that made me get out of bed in the middle of the night. Some were recordings I made after coming home from a night out with friends.
