NIce work, Roy! Beautiful song. The part which really struck me was that you performed with such restraint. Not a wasted moment, anywhere.

Hello guys,

I collected some tunes that I’ve composed on the last few years and put some of them on a little secret page. Feel free to check it out HERE
BP, I enjoyed your song too… I could never play this… Those Jazz chords are too complicated for me…

Thanks in advance

Damn, Roy! You know the one thing that really sticks out to me in all of your recordings is the incredible phrasing and impeccable control in your guitar playing. That kind of playing just transports me blissfully into alternate existences and the paradisical recesses of my interstellar consciousness, man. I wanna be you when I hear you play. And I’m particularly impressed with the way you’re able to switch seamlessly between slide and touch. I’ve heard very few players employ that so effectively. In fact, only Trevor Rabin comes to mind but he didn’t really do it that much. Guitar prowess aside, OM&M is a beautiful track.

Rogerio -- I’m glad you enjoyed Monkey. I’ve got another raucous rocker you can link to below. It’s funny you should mention liking the “80’s” snare sound because I actually rerecorded all the snare and tom tracks with different sounds. I think it sounds much better now.
I would totally be into trying some internet collab. I’ve been doing everything completely on my own so long it’d be nice to stretch into something different. Just let me know what you’re thinking about. In fact, if “No Name Yet/Low” is still untouched I could get into that.
Also checked out some of your secret tunes. You’ve really got some #$%& goin on, man. “Thoughtful Afternoon” is really nice and “Hip Jazz” of course is still a favorite. Do you have expanded versions of some these little tease tunes? It’d be great to hear some of that developed further.

Paul – God, I love your voice, brother! Great funky jam – love the synth stuff and that guitar player is making my crotch moist…well if I was a chick he would, I guess. Amazing you were all able to get together on this without even being in the same country!

picksail – I’m smiling broadly as I listen to “Five Bucks…” Reminds me of Steve Vai when he’s being blatantly influenced by Frank Zappa. You know, this is the kind of stuff we really need to be hearing on the radio. (Can I get a “AMEN, BROTHER TONY!”?) It’s cool and edgy AND makes you smile and bob your head…and laugh heartily at the bouncy cartoon noises. As for the fade, it could’ve gone even longer and it wouldn’t have bothered me but I’m a weirdo. Moreweirdpleasethankyou.

So here are a couple of new ones. "I'm Not Me" and "Not Forgotten." Plus the new mix of "Monkey." These are part of a full-length album I’m hoping will be finished this week. You all will of course have all access to this material.

BP- I really like your jazz track. I'm listening to it for the third time in a row right now. Very relaxing and good.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
I really appreciate your comments...I will be listening to your new songs as well shortly... thanks, Roy

Just watched a couple of the game video clips on the 'secret' page...you did a great job on the music. I'll be listening to more too.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Rogerio- great stuff. I like your video game compositions, especially the one for final fantasy. It really tells the story well with the pictures. How did you get involved with composing music for video games?

"Rogerio Lima has extensive skills..." that's for sure!
Did you do everything for these samples from beginning to end? If so, what are you mastering with?

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Thanks for all the comments. I played an L4 thru a fender super reverb for that track. I think I need to have the amp serviced. I have a polytone which I'll use next time, which will hopefully get rid of that buzz.


The bass is a clean fretless, dry/no verb, with a very slight chorus on it....there's also a deep cello, which comes in and out in the song. The 'tuning' thing you hear may be either that slight chorus or a slight phase issue.

Roy, I plan on listening to your piece again later tonight, but did you play everything yourself in your home studio, or was this another project.

I love the bass sound, and would love to hear more about how you achieved it.
