J100This is a little side project I started. Seven simple songs. I tried to keep everything very simple: the arrangements, the chord progressions, my playing. I also played some instruments that are new to me. This is sort of imposed simplicity, kind of like talking in an unfamiliar language. I am entranced with ukulele tunings. I play ukulele on a few songs and the tiple on one song. The tiple is a crazy ten stringed instrument. You tune a tiple like a ukulele but the tiple has double and triple courses. These double and triple courses are tuned in octaves. It is fun to play but my instrument is kind of funky intonation wise. I really liked this added element of simplicity and funkyness.

These are a couple early drafts of songs.

I still think I will add some bass on some of the tracks and have it mixed by someone who knows what he or she is doing. I hope you enjoy.
