"Jars" Mark and Kristen do a cover song from the band Chevelle. This song is off of their fifth album called Sci-Fi Crimes. This song's subject matter reflects the quirky themes of Sci-Fi Crimes. The song is a "kind of play on words. It's saving the environment. It's a joke about saving the environment and it's about literally taking the earth, and putting it into jars to save it for later. It's very tongue in cheek." We thank all who listen and comment.

"Mark's Music" This song got it's start from a guitar song I had laying around. I wanted to do something with it so I was sitting in my music room thinking about it and noticed my ukelele and mandolin just sitting there. So I got the idea to use them both on this song, along with a harmonica and my Hurdy gurdy. I also used an acoustic and electric guitar on it, as well as my bass. This is the result of adding all those to the fingerstyle song you can hear in the background. Nothing special here, just a simple song in the Key of C major. Still getting used to the Hurdy Gurdy and getting a good sound from it, but I think this sounds well enough. Had no name for it so just called it Mark's Music. Hope someone likes this. Thanks to all who listen and comment.

"Song for Glenn" As I said in my video for my friend Yvalain, Sometimes in life certain people inspire you and just make you feel good inside. Glenn Basham is another one of my friends that fits this profile. Glenn was another of the first people to friend me here online and share his music with me and mine with him. He was also the first to take a song of mine and put lyrics to it and create an entirely new song out of it. He has done this many times now. Glenn and I have collaborated, the two of us for 51 songs, and that does not even count the ones we have both done together with other friends. Glenn is one of the nicest people I have ever come across, never a bad thing to say about anyone, and his talent as a musician is outstanding. So I had to dedicate a song to Glenn to say how much his friendship over the years has meant to me and hoping it continues for a long time to come. Thanks to all who listen and comment.

"Empty Places, Empty Spaces" Here is another song from myself and my friend Kevin under our band name Ryders on The Storm. This is a rather lengthy song, but interesting in that there are several key changes and the song itself sounds a bit odd, and the tempo is a waltz feel. I used a fast tremelo effect for the first time on some of the guitar and the result was very satisfying. Some of the solos really interact well with Kevin's keyboards too. Thanks to all who listen and comment on our latest.

"My Friend Yvalain" an original song by Mark Taylor Sometimes in life certain people inspire you and just make you feel good inside. My Friend Yvalain Debodinance is one such person. A great musician and songwriter. He was one of my first musician friends here online and has always shown me great friendship and support. I have been able to do a lot of collaborations with him and others and I will always be grateful he had faith in me to ask me to join him on all the music we have done together and with others. His music has inspired me, and one song called "Reborn" that he wrote has a riff in it that I have always liked, it stands out to me. I used that riff as the basis for this song, along with variations of it and my own improv. I hope Yvalain and all that listen like what I have done. You can listen to Yvalain's song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl6p9... Thanks to all who listen.

"The Hell of Niflheim" I had been watching a show called The Last Kingdom, having to do with The Vikings and their mythology and history. I had a song laying around without a title to give to my friend Melani Cholie for our band Faye of Slaughter. I then got an idea in my head after watching a certain episode of the show having to do with the mystical world of Niflheim. Niflheim, Old Norse Niflheimr, in Norse mythology, the cold, dark, misty world of the dead, ruled by the goddess Hel. In some accounts it was the last of nine worlds, a place into which evil men passed after reaching the region of death (Hel). I then tried to write lyrics for the song along the theme of the episode I had watched, and this is the result. My very first song where I wrote the lyrics, and Melani sings them. We hope you all like it and thank you for listening.

City on the Edge of the Universe - The Moon Shadows Glenn Basham composed a song back in 1983 that had a "Doorsy vibe" called "City on the Edge of the Universe". He was inspired by the music of The Doors, so he decided to compose this song in the style of Jim Morrison and The Doors. Fast forward to 2021. Glenn Basham and the Moon Shadows decided to make their own new version of it as their tribute to Jim Morrison and the Doors. It has been 50 years since Jim has left us. We hope you enjoy this tribute.

"Test Test Enough" This one is a little different. A short song with very few lyrics. It's a cover from the band Chevelle, a band I really like. What drew me to this one was the use of delay on the guitar. It is like using a delay effect for the tempo of the song. I asked my friend Melanie Cholie to sing the lyrics, did not think it would work as an instrumental only. This song is off of Chevelle's latest album called Niratias. Hope all that listen like the song, and as always, thanks for listening.

"Back Home Again" Another song re-visited. This was originally written in June of 2005. My son John had left home, out of state, and we had not seen him for quite awhile. Finally, he was able to come home for a visit. It was so great to see him again. After he left, this song came to me while thinking about the nice visit with him. John was Back Home Again. Originally in the key of E Major, I upped it to F# Major, and added more guitars to it. Thanks to all of you who listen and comment.

"Circus Of Illusion" The Moon Shadows The Moon Shadows are back with an original song called "Circus Of Illusion" that Glenn Basham composed back in 1983. The Moon Shadows decided to record it in the spring of 2021. The circus theme is actually a metaphor for anything in life or in this world that seems appealing to the eye and to one's mind, but ends up deceiving someone and taking one onto a dangerous path into a nightmarish world. Concerning real circuses, Glenn actually likes those. We hope you enjoy our show!

Here is another original acoustic guitar song using a spider capo to get an E major tuning. The song is kind of a jumble of guitar sounds, a lot of open strings since only E major and A major 7th chords are used. I have two melodies kind of going against each other, the main parts of the song have a descending melody and an ascending one going with it. The song reminds me of taking a walk, hence the title. I hope you like my latest endeavor here, and as always, thanks for listening.

"Come Along For The Ride" Another song that started out as a solo spider capo song, I developed it further by adding some strummed chords, an acoustic bass line, and some melody over the main part. The song is another kind of Happy Uplifting one, save for the part where it goes from a major sound to a minor one. It kinda reminds me of a nice road trip, so I found some drone footage videos of cars and roadways to illustrate the song, also one video of a huge concert crowd dancing. Looks like they are dancing to my song. As always, thanks to all of you who listen.

"The Gist" Here is a cover song from the band Chevelle. Chevelle is an American rock band formed in Grayslake, Illinois, in 1995. The band was originally composed of two brothers Pete Loeffler (lead vocals and guitar) and Sam Loeffler (drums and percussion), along with Matt Scott (bass and backing vocals). Scott was replaced by Sam and Pete's brother, Joe Loeffler in 1996. When Joe left the band in 2005, Geno Lenardo subbed-in as the touring bassist until he was replaced by Pete and Sam's brother-in-law, Dean Bernardini. Bernardini later departed from the band in 2019. In 2021, Kemble Walters joined the band as a touring bassist. This is a band that my daughter Kristen turned me on to. Saw them live in concert a few years back and was floored by the guitar player's talent on stage. To be able to sing, play, and operate what looked to be a complicated floor pedal setup blew me away. This guy Pete Loeffler does some cool and fun to play guitar riffs, and this song here is a short one, but fun to play so I decided to do my own cover of it. It's an instrumental, and is off of their album 12 Bloody Spies, that features B sides and rarities. Hope someone likes this one, it is fun to just make some heavy guitar noise at times.

"Musical Aftermath" This was another solo acoustic guitar song at the start, then I decided to layer some more guitar onto it. Still thought it was missing something, and it hit me that I had not played my Ukelele in long time, so I got it out and put some Ukelele in the background. This is the result. This is in the key of E Minor, so there are a lot of open strings going on. This song sounds best in my opinion through headphones, so use them if you have them. The title kind of came from the mood of the song, reminded me a bit of the aftermath of a moody situation. Had no ideas for the video so I just added some pics of acoustic guitars, music notation, and some Ukeleles. As always, I thank you for listening.

The mood of the song I also thought sort of matched the state of the world we have been living in for the past few years, kind of like living among the ruins. The song also has some bits of happy sounding chords, and it made me think of smiling. So I also got the idea to have some of my friends who have made me smile through their friendship and musical collaborations be in the video I made. They are all The Smiles Among the Ruins. Thanks to all of them. Also, I did something in this one I've never done before, a few times in the song I have two melodies playing together, kind of off of each other. I hope this song finds an audience with my followers and friends. As always, I thank you for listening.

They decided to do their rendition of Paul McCartney's song called "The Kiss of Venus". They asked Kristen if she would like to join them and play the harpsichord part and she agreed. Glenn decided not to sing the song in falsetto, but instead, the key of the song was changed to A major instead of being in E major. He also tried to imagine how it might have been done vocally if The Beatles had sung it, so he decided to add vocal harmonies to this rendition. A very enjoyable collaboration!

"Noise" Mark and Kristen cover Nightwish again, this one from their latest album “Human. :II: Nature.”. The “noise” which Nightwish talks about in this song is a metaphor for constantly being plugged into the “matrix”. Or a simpler way of putting it is that this song is based on the concept of the modern human dependency on electronic media being a bad thing. And there is a special emphasis on social media, as the band portrays vesting in online personas as being a vain pursuit. So basically what we have here is a song in which the listener is under a constant flux of symbolisms pointing to the aforementioned ideas. And what is all boils down to is the notion that our reliance on computers, televisions and handheld devices has made us lose touch with mother nature. Indeed if we were to turn these appliances off for a decent amount of time we would come to realize “the Earth has a real voice”, as in it creates its own background noise which can get us through the day. As always, we thank you for listening.

"Positive Thinking" This is a song from the group Acoustic Alchemy, It has always been a favorite of mine, the kind of song that always evokes emotions. Acoustic Alchemy is an English smooth jazz band formed in England in the early 1980s by Nick Webb and Simon James. Simon left after two unprofitable albums and was replaced by Greg Carmichael. This is when I thought the band was at it's best, with these two as the main guys. This song here is off of their album of the same name. Sadly, this was the last album that NIck Webb would participate in as he was suffering from pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life in 1998. So this song is especially emotional for me knowing that it was one of Nick's last creations with the group. I asked my friend Mark Fussell to join me in doing this cover and he thankfully agreed. He plays the lead on this plus a cello effect while I play the backing guitar. We both thank you very much for listening.

"Red Cold River" Mark and Kristen cover one of their favorite bands once again. Another song from Breaking Benjamin. This is the acoustic version of the song from their Album Aurora. Originally from the Album Ember, the song is a heavy one with some heavy vocals, not easy to do on the piano, so we opted for the acoustic version. As always, we thank you for listening.

"Paranoid" Heard this song not long ago and thought it would be a fun one to cover. A friend of mine from New York, Anthony, who goes by the name Frost, was kind enough to do the vocals for me, and I think he sounds a lot like Ozzy here. Thanks to all of you who listen to us.
