More Tunes

Since I find myself suddenly band-less, I’m mucking about with Logic Express to recreate the experience on my lonesome. Here’s a few tunes (or bits of tunes) I’ve recorded recently.

With a vocalist, this is a laid back, jazzy song. Without a vocalist, it’s far too close to elevator muzak for my liking. Unfortunately, although I wrote the music, the lyrics weren’t mine so I’ve had to replace them with a guitar part. The solo stumbles a bit mainly because the track is about 50% too slow and I’m not entirely satisfied with bits of the drum line. Still, I quite like it.

Here’s the tab for the solo:

 - Capo 3

  Am              Dm        G         C       Am          Dm          E7

The first couple of minutes of the title theme from the C64 version of Robocop, played on acoustic guitar and electric bass (with a simple drumtrack provided by Logic).

This was a demo of a tune that I hadn’t written a vocal line for.
