I have been banging on guitars since 1967. My bass player pal JK, amp designing/building, bass building, friend has been guitar and bass playing for decades. I torture him with my bizarre noodlings and whacked chordal passages. We go through drummers like candy and now this teenager friend, Matt has come along. He is quite good at drums and guitars. We get together once or twice every three or four months on average.
We have tried the rigid learn-a-song thing and somehow . . . it winds up uninspired. To free jam, to let it flow, is always best. At least to my ears and for my soul.
One day we may even get a decent 8 track recording deck and really mix things right. For now we just let life happen and on that rare day we get together and await the muse, roll the tape, and enjoy the moment. Whatever happens, happens. So be it.
Listen below to what I mean . . .

COMMENTS TO DATE:Im listening to 'Vicodin Shuffle Down Angier Avenue' right now.
"That wild Frippy stuff around 1:57 to 2:20 rocks!"
from John OHara - Alaska keyboard guy
Your group's playing has a sort of Harvey Mandel-ish vibe,
which I like & a chance to get in a plug for Harv',
one of the all-time great players. Keep the good stuff comin'.
from anon a.k.a. "Cool prog/fusion head"
Since this is my site, I will now offer some of my own low-tech, fusion
recorded on "okay" equipment and normal bias TDK tape,
(note the hissss. Ah, but it is ruff improv in the raw!)Hear off-the-cuff jammin'
with absolutely no idea what was coming!
We taped this practice warm-up tune -- COLD
with only that delightful muse of the spontaneous as our guide.
It's a full 4 minute song of 963K so click on it and -- go get that next cup of Java
or go "download" the earlier one. Heh-heh.
Come back and your Real Player G2 will have it ready for you to have a listen.
NOTE: I HAVE HAD TO MODIFY VISITOR ACCESS OF SOUNDCLIPS WITH A NEW WINDOW OPENING TO ANOTHER WEBPAGE. SO WHEN YOU FINISH LISTENING, JUST CLOSE NEW WINDOW. (TUNE UNIT CLIPS WILL BE A NEW WINDOW'S PAGE BOTTOM - SO SCROLL DOWN.)Take a chance and have a listen to . . .

"Vicodin Shuffle Down Angier Avenue"and also check out:
"Farner Meets Santana"
sounding a bit more on the rock side, 20 minutes later this tune "happened".
It is 990K a tad over 4 minutes so download time is comparable to the previous song.
We are TUNE UNIT. We play at JAzz roCK or JACK music.
Some may say TUNE UNIT don't know JACK. TUNE UNIT currently is yours truly on 1980's Peavey,
heavy-as-lead guitars, JK on homemade bass, and Mr. "Rim Shot" Matt on drumkit.
Two olde coots and a fine young man just havin' fun. Play on drummer . . .
