Slotted in the Barrel

“Slotted in the Barrel” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This one is in a Ventures/Surf Rock style.

Impact Zone

“Impact Zone” is an original surf-rock composition in which I try (and I think I succeed) in getting a pretty authentic sounding Ventures/garage rock vibe.

Big Dog Boogie

Back in the fifties and sixties when people regularly bought albums as well as singles, the album “filler” track became a staple of the recording industry. Often put together on the fly and as an afterthought when the probable “hits” had been completed, these “filler” tracks occasionally took on a life of their own. Their unexpected popularity may have resulted from the uninhibited improvisations that often created them.

This is how “Big Dog Boogie” felt to me as I started noodling the main riff. Simple yet catchy, all it needed was some solos and a “B” section. Careful not to overthink it, I quickly threw together a bridge.

This is the result. I hope you like it.
