Jutze 52 #14 – Arlington Afternoon

This song happened after I listened to the pre-Creedence Clearwater Revival recordings of Tommy Fogerty and the Blue Velvets. I wrote an instrumental song with lots of reverb on the lead guitar; after all, my vocals don’t suit the early 60s pop music style. The video has a different lead guitar track as I re-recorded it while filming. The title has no particular meaning. I just liked it.

PS: Since I installed a podcasting plugin, there are additional (albeit broken) links at the end of each old 52-second song post. Please ignore them.

Jutze 52 #48 – Wild Geese in Texas

This song is a homage to Johnny and the Hurricanes. I first heard the band when I was a little kid, long before I began obsessing over music the way I do these days. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me so I won’t go into details. Let it suffice to say that the music was fun. I discovered other interesting music, eventually. Still, hearing some old beat instrumentals always makes me smile. Here is my primitive take on the genre. I kept the instrumentation simple. Lead guitar, rhythm guitar, keyboard, bass (programmed), and drums (programmed as well, but shhh). I’m very happy with the way the tune turned out. Let’s dance!
