Hi All: I am recording with some new engineering ideas that were given to me by my friend Mark. I have been trying to get the harshness out of my recordings. Anyway here are some I did this afternoon as a 1 man piano/harp band. Walter

swing me baby
will you?
timing on my time
like a leaf in the wind

"Swing Me Baby" is quite the toe tapper!! "Will You" kinda transported me to a smoky, dark nightclub at 3am. It had that kinda feel to it. Loved 'em!!! Great stuff as usual

thanks blueswrench! I get a rush out of playing the piano. It is so new and unknown to me. I know none of the rules with it and enjoy using the harp as a percussive instrument with it and messing with the timing of things. For some reason I can do wierd timing stuff with the piano/harp 1 man band that I can't do with the guitar/harp 1 man band set up. Walter

These new recordings sound really good, it's all really clear what's going on!

And I love Timing on my Time. That's a really cool song!

thanks Bournio! Mark is a genius as a player and engineer. He was in my band on and off during my 11 years in Austin. He has played with countless big names and engineered on recordings for Cher, Natile Cole, and folks in that level. Now that he lives only 30 minutes away I hope my recording quality continues to improve. He gave me some cool stuff to mess around with recording gear/dial wise. As I suspected, my recording gear is capable of much better sounding stuff than I am able to produce. Thanks on the piano stuff. It is kind of wierd timing, but I love trying to follow where it is going- I got no clue :D Walter
