“We’re living, we’re on this planet, find a good song on the radio and jam it”.
It took a while for me to get this one up to my normal levels of jamtronic standards. I was leaning heavily towards wind instruments (flute, french horn and oboe) as I like to do. But it took the addition of the lead guitar to get it to come around. Chris Singleton put some tasty bass on it to get it going as well.
“Philosophy would go right out the window, if we would only be this happy all the time”. Thanks for listening!
Finally a Sunday without snow and extreme cold. Mozart, our dog may actually get a few full fledged walks in today. Today’s song is a jazzy song not unlike a song I did back in January (one of my favorites) “The Sweetest Thing is Everything”. What can I say, I love major seventh chords. Thanks for listening!
Ah Springtime is finally almost here. No more mornings working in sub-zero temperatures I hope. The downside, now the sweating begins.
That must be why I seem to be writing themes with recuperative nature lately. “Living Life After the Fact” is along that route. It’s got a beachy old school vibe to it and I kept it simple (for time reasons mainly). This is really the kind of music I like doing a lot, I’m a big Donald Duck Dunn fan and love to write bass lines like his.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
