    Not sure how many peeps are still around, but here's a finger-style rendition of J.S. Bach's Prelude BMV 999:

    Nothing fancy - playing a Silver Creek T-160 into a Zoom H4. Hope you like it.

      Nothing fancy here folks. I've been fighting off the flu and this is the best I've got right now. I do it in "C".

      Don't feel much like recording anything right now.  Here's a jambox tape recording of my band that was recorded some time around 1998 or so.  It is an old Lynyrd Skynyrd tune called Gimmee Three Steps.  I'm not singing the lead, only doing back up singing. My lead work sounds a bit far away, but that's one of the hazards of jambox recordings.  Anyway, here'tis:

      I hope ya'll like it.

      Great job Verne.  I admire your style and abilities.  If I could play that piece of music, I would play it.  Can't seem to find where the "power chords" are supposed to go, so I'll have to leave it to the experts.  Yo!

    OK this is incredibly raw and crude as a recording but to my mind and heart incredibly sweet. Just recorded at about 5pm today. This is my band doing an impromptu run-through of our cover of The Beatles' "If I Fell", with our sax player playing along by ear--he had never heard the song before this afternoon (that's him laughing at the end because he fooked up the ending bit). We did this in an empty classroom this afternoon, just my Zoom H2 sitting on the floor. It's Mark on sax, Kyle on cajon, Molly and Mo (Morgan) on vocals, and me on guitar and vocals. 

    The name of our band is The Lawn Chairs. We have a 20-minute gig tomorrow during an all-day band marathon, and this is one of the 4 songs we will be doing, along with two of my originals as well as Folsom Pinball Blues.

    Normally we would have my long-time musical partner and bandmate-through-it-all Machine-gun Mike on mando, but he's vacationing in China at the moment.

    Recording is straight off the H2. No processing.

    I don't have a pic of the whole band, but here's (L-R) Mo, Molly and Kyle:

      This was very well done and I enjoyed it very much.  Where can I sign up for a group like this one?  Tell your bandmates how much the VOM'ers enjoyed it.  Post some more.

    I also don't have anything new to submit this month, so I pulled this out of the noisier side of my music file. I do a solo acoustic arrangement of this tune, but this is not it !

    Done with a little help from my friends, Bob, Jim, and Chuck,"Pacific Standard Time", in rehearsal around 1981. I may have been playing a plugged-in acoustic, but I can't remember.

      Now there's an old club tune.  Great fun and gets people up on the floor with their dancing shoes.  The bar owners love it.  It's a tried and true formula:  The more they dance, the thirstier they get and the more they drink.  Good song choice 12'er!  It was fun.
