Christmas with kids

My daughter has been experimenting with programming and asked me to help her produce some snippets of Christmas songs for her project. We had lots of fun making these! (“Feliz Navidad” also had a special guest appearance from my son) :)




I was recently listening to “Tutu” (Miles Davis/Marcus Miller) again and started imagining what it might sound like with the guitars and synths I’ve got, so here it is.


Edit: added another mix with my mate Cam on bass.

The First Noel

What is it about Christmas music that makes everyone want to do their own renditions? I’m not too sure either but here is yet another: a little arrangement in DADGAD. Thought I’d try making a video this time.


Tweed Inkblot

This was a fun little project for trying out some different pieces of software and hardware, including the BOSS GP-10 for the brassy synth sound (with the GR-300 emulation).



Esse foi um projetinho divertido para testar alguns equipamentos novos, incluíndo o BOSS GP-10 para o som dos metais (com a emulação do GR-300).



So Whatever


The wife is away for a couple of days, the kids are in bed and I’ve got a couple nice bits of kit staring at me… what else should I do but butcher a lovely song? Includes sounds from the new KORG volca bass and beats, Legacy Collection and the GR-55 guitar synth.

Silent Night


Borrowed a baritone guitar for the holidays so I just had to record a bit of Christmas music with it. (sorry about the hiss, I was experimenting with a different mic as well!)



Emprestei um violão barítono para as férias, então eu tinha que gravar uma cançãozinha de Natal com ele. (desculpe a chiada, eu estava experimentando com um microfone diferente também!)

wing and a prayer


I recently borrowed a Walden G3000 and I thought I’d be nice to lay something down with it so here it is. I enjoyed recording it, hope others will like it too.



Recentemente peguei emprestado uma Walden G3000 e pensei que seria legal gravar alguma coisinha com ela então aqui está. Eu curti fazer isso, espero que outros também gostem.


After a bit of head scratching, soldering and routing, here she is!

As I had been having issues with my Gordon Smith Galaxy’s original wiring, I thought I may as well take this opportunity to change its original pickups (the neck pickup was also far too dark!) and try out the infamous “Jimmy Page wiring“. (more…)

Godin Multiac Jazz - all three outputs

improvisation / improvisação


Here is a very chilled out improvisation on a quiet and cold Sunday Eve at home. Grab a glass of wine and sit back for a few minutes.

PS: In case you’re interested, I combined all three outputs on my Godin Multiac Jazz (magnetic, acoustic and synth) at the same time.


Godin Multiac Jazz - all three outputs


Aqui vai uma improvisação bem calma numa quieta e fria noite de Domingo em casa. Pegue uma taça de vinho e sente-se por alguns minutos.

PS: Em caso você esteja interessado, eu combinei todas três saídas da minha Godin Multiac Jazz (magnética, acústica e sintetizador) ao mesmo tempo.
