Jam Session Rewind: 212o — The Closing Track

This week's rewind, Jam Session 212o (6:13; see original show notes) closes out our 12-week run of...well, reruns.  I personally like the spacey groove of this jam session.  Take a listen:



So next week, I hope we'll have something new...and different!  Fingers crossed...

Jam Session Rewind: 111l — The Noisy Jam

This week's rewind, Jam Session 111l (15:16; see original show notes), was a fun, disgustingly long, super-noisy bit of rock 'n roll.  We had an unmanned guitar on a guitar stand, plugged in to an amp.  My brother Jon played a guitar but also controlled foot pedals for the effects attached to his guitar and the unmanned guitar.  I played the bass at times, and at other times I smacked the unmanned guitar to play a chord or two.  There are no overdubs; all instruments were recorded at the same time.  The drum beat was a bit reminiscent to Nine Inch Nails' "March of the Pigs" (but slower).  Anyhow, take a listen:



We've challenged ourselves to, instead of creating Jam Sessions, create Recording Sessions next time around (in a couple of weeks).  In other words, in place of quickly-created chord progressions and improvisations, we're going to take a bit more time and make some quickly-recorded -- yet full-realized -- songs.  It will be quite the challenge for your Jon and Ryan, your Chord du Jour hosts!  Can we do it?

Jam Session Rewind: 310p — The Potential Temp Track Replacement

Today's rewind is Jam Session 310p (6:48; see original show notes).  When a production can't get the rights to an actual song, they often hire other musicians to create a mimicking, sound-alike, but not-infringing, replacement track.  A more polished recording of Jam Session 310 can potentially be a temp track replacement for several popular songs.  (By the way, DeRamos Music runs a temp track replacement service.)



We are so close to new Jam Sessions (and more)!
