I wrote this song a few years back when I lived in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. For this recording, I had the assistance of drummer extraordinaire, Ron Carnell. Ron’s percussion work really helped gel everything together nicely.

Hello everyone. I have been busy working in the studio. I have some new equipment I am working with and a new batch of songs close to being finished. My web updates have been lacking because engineering, recording, writing, mixing – takes a lot of my time and energy. It is my hope that once I finish this batch of songs, I will have more web updates.
Besides new music, I have had some interesting folks stopping by the studio to play music. Keep watching my Live From Tangled Wire Studio page for new songs. Live videos are also on the horizon.
If you come here and see the site not updated, please check out my blog. There you can read about topics such as my favorite low budget mics, dearly departed gear, some of my favorite obscure recordings and a whole host of other topics.
I have added a new page for live recordings created at Tangled Wire Studios. This page is dedicated to live music created at Tangled Wire. All music and video* on this page will be recorded live performances. It is my goal to do more live performance recording in order to preserve those “magic” moments. I have always been fascinated with the emotional interplay between musicians as a song unfolds.
First up is a spontaneous jam song recorded on November 11th, 2012. This song – and the recording – were not planned. It just happened. “Winter Ale Song” features Noel Williams on Alto Sax, Dreaddie Girl on Drums and yours truly on Bass.
Another example of Live at Tangle Wire is my song, “The Swamp.” This song features David LaVeda on Slide Guitar and yours truly on Guitar and Vocals. This song was recorded back in 2011.

Featuring Curt West: Trumpets and Yelping
Recorded at Tangled Wire Studios, Seattle, WA
This track is a tribute song to one of my favorite places to visit – Eugene, Oregon. I would like to thank Curt West for the fine trumpet work and the enthusiastic yelps. This song, like all my music, is available for free download. Comments are always encouraged.

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.
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.)
