(I'll put the songs in later today" I'm "dated" and not "18" anymore . We grooved on Funk and Parliament in the 70's. SO I started my 1st bands.
Before you listen, I was always trying to create "my own sound". I'm not trying to compete with "hip hop". Don't get me wrong I like "Hip Hop". I was there for the 1st Rap songs, "King Tim the 3rd", "The Sugarhill gang" and "The Sequence" from Columbia S.C. were the "style of the day". Maybe less sophisticated compared to todays "RAP". So in 1979 - We had our 1st RAP Group "KoolAid".
Back then it was the "808" drums. While Prince ruled with the Minneapolis sound and Rick James ruled "Funk" and MJ ruled "POP". But now, I find that everyone has the same sound by using the same tools. (protools).
Me? I just want to do my own thing- I'm "sorry" if its not to "your taste".

- Please excuse the primitive techniques - These Songs were made differently. My Bands were sucessful but it was hard to get them to create our own music and we only covered other bands tunes. SO I stepped out on my own, Plus I played all the instrumentsto write the songs. SO my sound is limited but written for a band to play, not just me.
I had "no access" to any studio equipment when I first tried writing a song. So here's what I did. I had a cheap stereo system with Microphone Inputs, so I rented another Stereo system with mic inputs from a "rent to own center". I then played one track usually drums 1st- using the automatic drums on a "Mini Casio Keyboard" as my base track. Then taped the output out from "stereo one" to the right channnel of "stereo 2", while then adding a bass line using an old beat up bass I made from an old bass frame and a guitar pickup from a cheap $30 dollar guitar, on the left microphone input.
Then played that "stereo output" back into the "1st stereo mic input" and added keyboard lines. I did this back and forth until I made a song. Of course sound degrades as I made "copies of copies" and "tempo changes" occurred bouncing back between systems- so musical keys became more "sharp or flat". This is the reason for some things being slightly out of key. But I did what I could "with what I had". "Try not to laugh, I was poor". Please don't be "too critical" of my attempts, I just wanted to try to write some songs, but in S.C. I no longer worked in a band so there was no money for studio time at $100.00 an hour.
Please excuse the primitive techniques. I'm just a guy "with no training" who liked music.>
