Cover of Coldplay’s Magic

This is a very sad but beautiful song.

I think I’ve captured that in this cover.  I love this song.  It’s so simple.  Basically D to E the entire time…this is in a drop C tuning.

SWG Song To Be Used In #1 Rated Friday Night ABC Show!!

battle hymn of the republic artwork2

So, it looks like a song I wrote and recorded and then forgot about is about to be on national TV! Yay for the internets.

The song, Battle Hymn of the Republic, is an arrangement of a classic abolitionist hymn by Julia Ward Howe. A short section of the song will be used in Christiane Amanpour two part series, Back to the Beginning. Also, this show is the #1 show on Friday nights. That’s nice too.

This song was mixed by the very talented Pedro Costa.

Pedro and I also created ANOTHER adaptation of a public domain song called Joshua Won the Battle of Jericho, which unfortunately we can’t post.  But, you CAN hear it on Friday night ABC, 8/9.

Here’s my first ever ukulele song.  I’m Gonna Have The Best Day.

Beck’s Latest Album: Just Sheet Music. Your Thoughts?

But seriously, the artist formerly and currently known as Beck has created his latest album as sheet music only.  I mean, that’s kind of cool, but also not accessible to the average listener…

What do YOU think?
