Well we made it through 2013 and we have a 2014 ahead of us. I hope it’s a peaceful and creative year for everyone. Remember what’s important and cherish the time you have with your friends and loved ones.
With that, I present a newly mastered version of one of my favorite songs, “I’m So Glad You’re My Friend.”
Here’s an impromptu live recording of my song, “The Swamp” recorded on December 5th, 2010 at Tangled Wire Studios. I am fortunate to have my friend David LaVeda accompanying me on slide guitar. The song was recorded live to 2 track mini-disc.
Here’s another song from my archives:
This version of the song was originally recorded when I moved into my current Tangled Wire Studio digs in the basement of stately Marwood Manor. While it is a primitive recording, (done in Cakewalk Pro Audio 9). at the time I was happy to have this old song idea is a completed form.
From time to time, I will dig through my music vault and post some older recordings.
The first edition of Marwood’s Music Vault features 2 versions of my song Electric Guitar Interlude. There’s about a 15 year gap between the 2 versions.
This recording dates back to 2004/2005. The production of this song started at the original Seattle location of Tangled Wire Studios and ended up being the 1st song I completed in my current digs (the basement of Marwood Manor.) This version features Jeff (I am sorry I don’t know his last name) on Drums and crunch rhythm guitar.
Now for a real blast from the past Here’s the original idea Circa 1989.

This version is from the late 1980?s, was recorded in Kingston, PA and was the first “Completed” song done on my old Tascam Portastudio 4-track cassette recorder. The quality isn’t the greatest The tape stock has degraded over the years – and the playing has some rough spots. At the time, however, I was was very happy to put something together. I owe a lot of thanks to my old friend Terry, who lent me an Yamaha Reverb box. (I am not sure of the model – but it might be a Yamaha Rex 50.)
