Mark Taylor - Guitar - "Turmoil" Another spider capo song. I like the fact that you can play on either side of the capo depending on where you position it on the guitar neck, and this one lends itself very well to that. Hope you all enjoy it!!

"The Crow, The Owl, and The Dove" Here we are again with another Nightwish cover. This one was a challenge for me as it required using a pick to do the main guitar part, and involved some string skipping which I am not very good at, and also a couple of difficult stretches too. Lots of practice paid off and got it good enough to record. Kristen challenged me with this one, and needless to say, she sounds great on this. We thank you all once again for listening.

"I'm Still Able" This was written some time ago, one of the songs I had not posted. Trying to find all the ones I still have out there before I forget about them. This one came about after I had done a lot with my spider capo. I had to prove to myself I could still write one in standard tuning, although I did capo at the fourth fret as it sounded better that way. So I was still able to write one without the spider capo. 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.

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!!

"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.

"Open Strings" I've always had a fondness for songs with open strings. The key of E minor on the guitar allows for a lot of them, so this one I wrote in that key uses them a lot, so that's how the song got it's name. My last post of the year, so Happy New Year to all of you, and thanks for listening.

"I'm Alive" We are back again, this time with a cover of a song by the band Disturbed. The original has some heavy distorted guitar on it, and it was a bit of a challenge to work this out to an acoustic cover. We liked the result and hope you do too. Thanks for listening.

No one is listening! It's been awhile, but finally a new collab with Kathy Shortt, and joined by War Vandal too. An original from Kathy who does the vocals, I added some guitar and harmonica, and War added some nice touches to it to really round it out. We hope you like it and thank you for listening.

"Under Her Spell" Another spider capo song, this time using a tuning giving me the notes E A C G A E, an A minor 7 chord. Found this arpeggio melody in there, lots of different forms of an A minor chord to be found this way up and down the fretboard, and a few variations of a C Major chord too, among others. Thanks for listening, and I'll dedicate this to all the females out there who have us guys under their spell.

"Tongue Wagger" Time for another harmonica song. Using a Lee Oskar A Natural Minor harmonica on this one. The song gets it's name because I am actually "wagging" my tongue around while playing parts of this, kind of saying diddle diddle dit dit, dah dah dah, dah dah into the harmonica. Talking into the harmonica while playing can give some interesting sounds. Hope you like this and thanks for listening.

"Down Ukelele Lane" Thought I would post a song while fando is working, who knows when it will crash again. Have a back log of around 30 songs I have not posted, guitar, uke, and harmonica, better get some of them out there. This is me finding another uke tune using an alternate tuning, F C E G, instead of the standard G C E A. Thanks for listening.

"Michela's Smile" This sweet lady I met here on fando has become a very good friend, and she has an infectious smile that always makes me smile too. So here is another song dedication to my good friend Michela Vazzana. We have an ever growing list of collabs together that will only grow over time, thanks Michela for being a great friend, and such a wonderful vocalist, and especially for trusting me to add guitar to your music projects. Thanks for listening.

Zapple Pie - Hello, My Love Here we are yet again with another song, this time a happy sounding tune. Yvalain wrote the music for this, Glenn wrote the lyrics and sang them, I added some guitar fills and a solo. Also enjoyed how Yvalain came up with the video to make it look like we are all in the studio together. Who can identify the background in the video? And as always, thanks for listening.
