"Oh Gee" Another acoustic song, and look, no capos this time. I do have the A string tuned to G, which puts the song in the key of G, hence the name of the song. Thanks for listening.

"Rock Candy" Here is a cover of a Ronnie Montrose song. I always felt that Ronnie never got the accolades that he deserved. A brilliant guitar player, always been a big fan of his. Any serious rocker, or guitarist for that matter knows who he is. So I decided to try and do this one, and got help from my friend Tyler Selph to do the vocals. Not an easy song to sing, but he came through very well. Not an easy one to play either, impossible for me to get all of the subtleties that Ronnie does in the song, had to fake a few of the bends he does by using slides, the bends are a bit beyond me. But all in all, a fun song to do, and Tyler and I hope you like what we have done here. Thanks for listening.

"MelaDani" This one is inspired by and dedicated to two fando friends, Melani Cholie and Danijela Jovic. They had posted a song together last week, and had also met each other, and we interacted with each other on the fando site a bit. Soon after I picked up my guitar, tried this new tuning and came up with this song. It came very quickly, and I attribute my interaction with these two ladies as the reason, so there you have it. Thanks for listening.

""Maddy" This one was recorded three years ago, I'm still finding old songs that I have never posted, need to do them all eventually. I'm using my older uke in this one, the first one I ever got, and this song is dedicated to another female friend of mine, Maddy. A simple tune, definitely not one of my better ones, but it gets the message across. I'm also using an F C E G tuning on this one as opposed the the regular uke tuning of G C E A. Thanks for listening.

"Hidden Melody" Been awhile since I posted a harmonica song. This is one I did using a Lee Oskar Melody Maker in the key of C. The thing about a Melody Maker Harmonica as opposed to the regular Diatonic Harmonica, is that you can play lots of single note melodies on it where you would have to be able to do a lot of bending on a regular diatonic to be able to play all the notes. I ordered this Melody Maker out of curiosity, and instead of trying a song with single notes, I played chords on it and found this "Hidden Melody" in there. And I always feel these harmonica songs of mine sound a bit better with a little percussion behind them. Thanks to whoever listens and likes this.

"Abnormal"Another song inspired by an on line lesson from my son John Taylor. This time using another weird and interesting scale, the half/whole diminished scale. As opposed to a major scale that has the degrees whole step whole step half step whole step whole step whole step half step, this scale goes half step whole step all the way through. So in the key of A which is what I'm in here, you get the notes A Bb C Db Eb E Gb A. Thanks for listening to my Abnormal song!!

"Weirdness" This song came about after watching an on line lesson given by my son John. He talks about and demonstrates a Japanese scale called the Hirojoshi Scale. It has a minor sound, and only used five notes, the 1st, 2nd, b3, 5, and b6 degrees of the scale. He used an A Hirojoshi, which has the notes A B C E F. I tuned my guitar down one full step to get a darker sound, and I use the notes G A Bb D Eb. I only use these notes to play the song, save for one passing note in one of the chords. It was interesting trying to make sure I used only these five notes. Thanks for listening.

"Another for Anitra" I have so many songs I have never posted yet, so I figure I should start putting some up before I write anything new. Time for another harmonica song. This one came about because years ago I had written a guitar song after learning a classical song called Anitra's Dance, from the music written by the composer Edvard Grieg for the play Peer Gynt. I never recorded my song called Another for Anitra, but one day got the idea after playing it, I wondered if it would work on the harmonica. I had to use two to do it since there is a key change. So I used an A harmonic minor and a C diatonic harmonica to do the song, worked out okay, but bit of a challenge to use two of them, and the song is all single notes so that was a bit difficult to hit all single notes all the way through the song. Hope you all like this one, thanks for listening.

Centerfield (John Fogerty cover) - Glenn Basham and Mark Taylor The idea for this one came about because I had been reading John Fogerty's autobiography, and when the subject of Centerfield came up, I had remembered that some time back Glenn and I had covered John's song, Old Man Down The Road. Someone asked Glenn at that time to do Centerfield, so I thought I would ask Glenn if he wanted to to do it now, he agreed, and this is what we came up with. I play the lead and rhythm guitar, Glenn does the vocals, drums, bass, and he made the video. Baseball season opens in about a week, so enjoy our rendition of this song!!

In this case, Tyler Selph, a fando friend, heard my song "Ups and Down" and got inspired to write lyrics for it. He asked if he could and I said yes right away. Tyler wrote and sang the lyrics and made the video, and here is the result. We hope you like it, and my big thanks to Tyler for his efforts in making my song into something a little different and very nice to listen to. And we are posting this today, hence the title.

"Bolden Melody" How about a happy sounding harmonica song? These days we need happy music. This one came about as the result of a guitar contest I was involved in a awhile back, my entry won a 50 dollar gift certificate from Sweetwater, so I ordered a new harmonica, a Hohner Golden Melody in the key of B major. The song got it's name that way, I changed Golden to Bolden, using the key of the song, B, instead of the G in golden. So there you have it, hope you like my Bolden Melody.

"My Happy Song" With all the scary stuff going on in the world right now, thought I would post my humble little song here, has a happy kind of feel to it, and I hope it makes you all happy too, if just for a few minutes. Another spider capo song. Thanks for listening.

Zapple Pie - Whistling In The Wind Here we are again with a new song. This was a cool one to do, we had to imitate walking along while playing and with Glenn singing. I actually worked up a sweat with all the different takes of the video and wearing the coat and hood while filming this. And as always, we thank you for listening.

"Bumblin' Around" Thought it was time to post another of my harmonica songs, Blues Thursday seemed like a good time to do it. This one is kind of an upbeat Blues Shuffle in the key of G. Tried to use a lot of single notes with a few 2 note chords thrown in there, and I like having a percussion backing track, makes keeping time a bit easier. Thanks for listening.

All My Life, America. By Michela Vazzana, feat: Keith Adkins & Mark Taylor My turn to post this cover song by the band America from their 1979 album Silent Letter. I have done many songs with Michela in the past, and this time we were joined by Keith Adkins who many of you know here on fando. Keith did all of the instruments except the rhythm and lead guitar which I did, and Michela provided her gorgeous vocals, did the mixing and the video. We all thank you for listening.

Bleeding Heart - Angra A few weeks ago I received a message from a fando friend, Felipe Holmack and he asked me to provide a guitar track for a song he wanted to sing. Quite a surprise but much appreciated, so I agreed and here is the result. We thank you for listening.

Zapple Pie - Silent Raindrops Hi everyone, we are back with yet another song for you. This one was an idea I had, I was in my music room one rainy day fooling around with some chords and wrote this music. It was raining outside and I noticed that I could not hear any raindrops hitting the window or roof, so that is how the song got it's name. I proposed this to my partners and Glenn wrote and sang the lyrics, Yvalain added some strings and glockenspeil and the video and effects, and we had another song. As always, we thank you for listening.

"Deanna" This song was written for a good friend of mine who recently lost her mother to cancer. She was feeling very down so this was my attempt to make her feel a bit better. It was also an attempt to prove to myself that I could write a song in standard tuning without a capo of any kind. Not a complicated song, and I use a favorite technique here, chord variations going up and down the fretboard, another thing I like to do other than staying with a standard chord type. As always, thanks for listening.

"Looking for something New" Ukelele time once again. All of you who know me also know I'm a big fan of alternate tunings. I am doing that here with the uke on this song, using a capo and different tunings to two of the strings to get a G D F# G tuning, and I found this little song hiding in there. Thanks to all who listen.

"Anagantios" This is a cover song from the band Eluveitie. The name of the song comes from the Celtic Lunar Calendar, and refers to the months of January and February, and means "stay at home time". Kristen plays the violin here. She used to take lessons some years ago, but quit playing for a long stretch. She took it up again about two months ago and we decided to do this song and post it here. We hope you like our first try and doing a guitar/violin song, and we thank you for listening.

"Mortality" Another venture with the spider capos, this time getting an open D minor tuning. Got the mood for this one while thinking about all the people that I have known that have passed recently, as well as friends of mine who have lost loved ones, not to mention all the big name celebrities I have grown up with. Really makes you think about your own mortality, and how much longer you yourself has. Anyway, thanks for listening and hope you enjoy the song.
