Mike’s Music

GuitarMusic has been a big part of my life for over forty years. My time at ‘the cottage’ was probably my most formative period, when I had a lot of time to learn, practice and find my own ‘rivers of sound’ to float along. I’ve played solo or in groups in pubs, restaurants, concerts, cafes and even a couple of weddings. About twelve years ago I discovered the joys (and frustrations!) of digital audio workstations and gradually started recording my own compositions at home. While I don’t play in public anymore, I’d be delighted if you could take a few minutes and have a listen to my ‘stuff’.

I’ve compiled some of my tunes for my memoirs, One of its Legs are Both the SameA Pocket Full of Days, Part 1  and A Pocket Full of Days, Part 2. These are songs and instrumentals that relate to events or evoke the times and circumstances of the periods covered in each memoir. I can supply any of these tunes as mp3 or wav files, just drop me a comment and I’ll get back to you. All these tunes are also on my various cds that you can find over at Bandcamp. Enjoy!

bandcamp-picOver on Bandcamp you can find my music tracks and CDs for download. Won’t cost you a bomb, as they say, and you can listen to any of the tracks for free up to three full playthroughs, so please go have a look see and listen. Yes, the site really is called Bandcamp, as in: ‘…one time, at band camp…’ 😉  I’d be happy to supply physical copies of CDs and to compile a set of up to ten or so tracks of your choosing.

I’ve also made videos of a few of my acoustic guitar instrumentals and put them up on youtube: MikeC YouTube. I would really appreciate any comments on these pieces, so please drop by YouTube, have a listen and let me know what you think.

Here’s a short instrumental ‘sampler’ called ‘Little Troll’s Dance’. In my mind, at least, this tune evokes its title: a quiet dance done by a small female troll. If you go check out my Bandcamp site, this track is on the ‘Simple Days’ CD.
