An improvised jam with an extra guitar track overdubbed.
One of The Jambros’ favoritest bands ever.
And finally on youtube!
A Jambros original that we recorded last year. Will try to post it tonight (late) so check back tomorrow!
Was having a chat with a fella Mike and I game with (yes we are geeks) and told him about our podcasts:
Me: the podcasts are basically the stuff that happens between the “real” music we’re working on
The Cheggs: it’s like the extra dough from the biscuits
Just so. Thanks for listening, Cheggster!
For the newlyweds: Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Krause! Congratulations!! It was a gorgeous wedding, everything was beautiful. Andrea is like a little sister to me, more than a niece - and I’m so happy she’s with Andy….a great, joyful, kind man with a heart of gold.
Mike did a great job on this - he plays bass and Rhodes electric piano (our first podcast with the Rhodes). I played electric guitar (rhythm and a secondary bit) and mandolin. The song has three parts, A B and C, the first two represent Andy and Andrea. The third part is sort of romantic and mysterious (to my ears) and represents the mystery of God - who creates, wills, and triumphs, and who is Love creating and willing, triumphantly, something new this October.
Besides the Waltz, which will be podcast after the wedding next weekend, we have some fun bits of music to share. Sorry for the lack of updates, Jeffrey. And Jason. Anyone else paying attention out there?
It’s been a while since I updated this, but plenty has transpired since the last post. We recently acquired a Fender Rhodes electric piano from Choby. He’s the same fella we got our beloved Wurlitzer from. It’s a tremendous instrument. Not only is the keyboard bigger, and significantly HEAVIER than the Wurly, it also came with it’s own speaker cabinets. They are huge, profoundly heavy.
It sounds just wonderful, and Mike K. has been having a good time getting acquainted with it. I need to get pictures and/or video uploaded of this beast. It forced us to rearrange our studio significantly; I’ve been flipped over to where M used to sit, so everything’s a bit backwards.
“Andy & Andrea’s Waltz” is coming along wonderfully - it features my Mid-Missouri Mandolin, electric guitar playing rhythm, and MK on bass and Rhodes. It’s pretty short (2 minutes or so) and has three parts. I can’t wait for you (and the happy couple) to hear it. We took Mike’s mixes out for a “test drive” last night, and it’s sounding great but still needs tweaking.
It’s been ages since a podcast, but we do have material and hope to get one going soon.
We started a new project last night, a gift for soon to be newly-weds Andrea & Andy. It’s a waltz…..mostly. It’s an instrumental, with three parts. The A part is in 3/4, then briefly in 4/4, then back to waltzing again. Should make for some interesting dancing. Maybe a pirhouette needs to happen during the 4/4 bit. Anyway, we’ll let you hear this eventually. We have to get it finished before October 17th.
Here’s some Waltzing for you to get you in the mood.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I will whip up another podcast soon!
