First, here are (and on youtube) ten recordings (of 20 songs:-) in the form of musical Portmanteau, and mainly about or relating to women (see link for lots of great women guitarists!). The idea is to seguay from one into another and back, seamlessly - it doesn't always work, but this was all 1 take improvised recordings using garageband on an ibook (with the built in mike, hence sound/noise/level problems:). Played on guild or lowden (as seen here).
Some of the titles aren't quite there yet - and I'd like to re-do these with vocals (e.g. in style of jose gonzales, i wish:)- the idea is also that the songs compliment each other (cause/effect, sickness/cure, love/hate, betrayal/revenge, angry/peaceful, happy/sad). At some point, I'd like to do a Jeff Beck (Goodbye Porkpie Hat) style cover of Round Midnight
next three are work in progress - just tryin to figure out mesh of pairs of newer songs
Most the stuff above is played on a Lowden got for a v. decent price in the Ithaca Guitar shop (thanks Charles), although some is on an old Mahogany Guild D28, bought in London (Kilburn) in 1976, which is still rather nice.
Most the guitar below is on a 1973 white fender strat, bought in toronto from a pawn shop, or when on bass, a handmade one-off done by Dave Karlin, a friend who is good at carpentry and turned his hand to making some solid body guitars - the bass has a fender precision fretless neck and fender jazz and precision pickups, and is absolutely brilliant 30 years later. The body was made from bog seats from St Paul's boyschool's Victorian loos that my friend rescued when they were being thrown out for some modern replacements - yes - true a fretless bass with a toilet seat for a body!
