“DO IT AGAIN”

RevRon P. – Lead & Rhythm Guitars / (Drums)
Alex Johnson – Bass Guitar and Violin.

“Do It Again” is a collaboration with RevRon P. – who plays Lead & Rhythm Guitars. The song started with a basic beat that I put some bass parts to, and then came up with the basis of the song after jamming on it a few times. RevRon P. took a listen to it and went to town- he beefed up the drums and made a great drum track that really fits the song. Then he worked his “guitar wizardry” and came up with some killer guitar tracks and catchy themes that really made the song drive – and, he gave it some real Zing. I topped things off with some violin tracks – to add a little “spice” to the song.

“Do It Again” will make you want to “Play it Again”!

“STEAM SHOVEL”

“Steam Shovel” is a song featuring RevRon P. – Lead & Rhythm Guitars.

I had this song “on the shelf” for a while, looking for some inspiration. After I met RevRon P. in an online forum, we hit it off and I sent him this tune to see if he could come up with something. I think the result was quite creative. I really appreciate his guitar playing in this song, and his lead solo is outstanding, so I thank him for his contribution to this song. Finally, I spiced it up with some synthesizers to bring that steam punk feel into it.

“Steam Shovel” should get your blood pumping – and feel the power of the heavy beat…

A RevRon Remix – “Steam Shovel”

Here is Ron’s description of his “Steam Shovel” video, which says it all!

“A couple weeks ago my friend Alex Johnson released his song ‘Steam Shovel’, featuring yours truly on guitar. Well Alex was nice enough to allow me to release my own remix of the song for a video. So, I added a bit of my own flair, including some keys. Hope y’all enjoy!”
– RevRon P.


“LATE ONE NIGHT”

“Late One Night” is a bass jam I did at about 2:30 in the morning on 04/15/21. Put down a minimal percussion track, and filled in the rest as I went with the flow.

This is back to my more “minimalist” style, which I really enjoy.

“FREE ALL DAY”

“Free All Day” combines Bass Guitar, Fuzz Bass, Violin, and Synthesizers.

This song is a bit more up-tempo and a different style than my earlier music on this website, mainly because of the drum track that works in with it.

There is a Violin Solo in the middle of this song (1:20), with a nice bass part along with it. That middle section is what I liked the best about this song… so give it a listen!

“Gunslinger”

“Gunslinger” is a short ambient piece with a unique moodiness that is somewhat bittersweet. The main melodic expression in the first part of the song is a bass melody doubled with violin.  Later the mood shifts to a warm but deep feeling.

“Sunbeam”

“Sunbeam” features bass rhythms accompanied by “fuzz bass” lines. Fuzz Bass is a bass guitar technique that creates a distinctive and unique floating sound.  In “Sunbeam”, Violin solos and harmonies top off this new sound.

“WTC-9/11”

Early Video by Alex – 9/11 Memorial Music Video. Original music soundtrack.



Above: “Black Hole” – Soundtrack is Stephen Hawking saying “Black Hole”. All of the sounds you hear are created with only Stephen Hawking’s “voice” run at different speeds, reversed etc. I probably recorded this, as an experiment, back in the early 1980’s. First photos of a black hole released today, April 10th, 2019.
